Where is the new of union with you, that I will give up my life
I’m a bird from the paradise to become free from the traps of the world.
Khaje Sham ul Din Mohamad, also known as Hafez is one of the most well-known poets of Persia who lives in 14th century CE.
He was born in Shiraz, however, his dad was from a town in east of Esfahan and his mother was from Shiraz. He was taught religious lessons by his dad and started learning Quran and memorizing all verses of this holy book. This is the reason he was called Hafez because in Farsi anyone who memorizes items and is able to recite by heart is called Hafez.
He was also interested in poetry as it was quite well-known in Iranian history, however, there were several intellectual poets in previous centuries. He started learning Iranian literature by and became very popular in lyrics. What makes him different among all poets is, his poetry that everyone needs to know literature as there is simple meaning of his verses as well as deep meaning that only those who are experts in Farsi grammars would tell.
On his anniversary we would like to invite everyone from all over the globe to join us at his tomb such as all locals and start reciting his lyrics and get acquainted with his character and poetry.
