Sa'di of Shiraz the Master of Poetry and Wisdom
SAEDNEWS: The poems of the Persian poet Saadi Shirazi, known as The Master of Speech, have shown that all generations can make good use of his notions.

The first day of the Iranian calendar month of Ordibehesht (April 21) has been named Saadi Day to commemorate the prominent 13th-century Persian poet Saadi Shirazi. The poems of the well-known poet are read not only in Iran but throughout the world.

The morals of Saadi’s poems and prose are enjoyable and fruitful for people from all walks of life in all generations.

Saadi’s books are Bustan (The Orchard) completed in 1257 and Gulistan (The Flower Garden) in 1258.

In early April, Supreme Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said that “One of the distinguished features of Persian poetry is the production of epistemic and spiritual capital, which is crystallized in the peaks of Persian poetry and the wise and enlightening poems of prominent poets such as Ferdowsi, Nizami, Rumi, Saadi and Hafez.”
