The plural noun 'A'rab indicates the Bedouin tribes who lived in the desert and resisted the message of the Prophet, as for instance in Q 9/97 al-'A'rabu 'ashaddu kufran wanifaqan 'the Bedouin are the worst in disbelief and hypocrisy'.

From here, the poetic language is assumed to have spread to other centres, in the first place to the court of al-Hira, the buffer state in the north between the Bedouin tribes and the Persian empire.
