The research studies Jerusalem and poets at the full sense of the word (passions): the meaning of love complaints, sadness, anger, and triumph, these are the religious, real, psychological, and emotional meanings that most poems tackled the situations/conditions that Jerusalem survived. However, the research focused only on the dimension of victory which is clearly shown in two topics: the setting on conquest plans, the process of victory and the image of the Victorians. The researcher approaches his topic in a critical analytical way based on historical events to reveal the inner feelings of poets and their emotions towards blessed Jerusalem, and to provoke and encourage rulers and governors to conquest it. They approached this gradually as every stage requires. Some looked like strategic experts who can figure out the central point of danger and its geographical dimensions to invest the appropriate opportunity to conquest new areas. But with the advent of great leaders provocation for conquest, turned to be a mechanism to defend Muslims and Islam across all countries. This, as a result, would enable Salah din Al Ayoubi to conquest Jerusalem. The poets then started singing and praising the conquerors and drawing a clear image in the heart of the crowd as well as in their minds, rich with love, and full appreciation and thanks to the Almighty for the great victory. This clearly appeared in the consciousness of poets who were fully aware of its religious and urban importance. This was clearly reflected in their poems in a monologue with oneself and the historical reality. But due to being a literary genre, it represents vision that was able to explain the self as well as the world around, which in turn created an interactive environment among poets, the feeling of the group, an its legal dreams in creating a better future.
