Attar Neishabouri
Iranian Mystic Poet
1119-1230 AD


"Faridodin Mohammad ibn Ibrahim Attar Neishabouri" was born in about 1119 AD in Kadkan, a village near Neishabour and from his early youth he began to study. 

While he was busy in his shop, selling medicine, he began to compile his two works, "Elahi-nameh" and "Mosibat-nameh". The collection of 1885 tales in his works indicates his high talent and ability. "Tazkeratol-olia", "Manteqol-teir", "Asrar-nameh" and "Khosro-nameh" are also of his works; his quatrains are famous all over the world.

As other Gnostics, Attar, physician, traveled widely in East, from Mecca to Mesopotamia. 

He was killed, during Mongol invasion to Iran, in about 1230 AD.
