Samuel the Nagid, who would become a poet and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain, was discovered by the royal court of Granada as he worked in a spice shop in Malaga. He soon rose to the position of Vizier of Granada, second in power only to the king. His writing commenced the golden age of new Hebrew poetry.
