Majnun Layla, not to be confused with layla saida was the name attributed to Qays Ibn al-Mullawah for he was “driven mad by Layla”. While “layla” means “night” in both Arabic and Hebrew, Layla was the woman that Qays feel in love with in the classic Middle Eastern love story of Layla and Majnun. When Layla’s father refused to let Qays marry her, he went mad — hence, Manjun Layla. Now, read the link and have a “layla saida”.
