A Classic Arab tale that detailed the morbid love story of Qays ibn al-Mulawwah of the Banu ‘Amir tribe and his undying love for Layla. Originally said in the Anecdotes of classic Arab folklore, it was popularized by the 12th Persian poet Nizami. It is the base of inspiration for classic Romantic Literature pieces like Romeo and Juliet and many other tales. 
” I pass by these walls, the walls of Layla
And I kiss this wall and that wall
It’s not Love of the houses that has taken my heart
But of the One who dwells in those houses ”
