Farid Al-Din Attar

Considered one of the great Sufi poets in his native country, Farid al-Din Mohammad bin Ibrahim Attar Nishapuri (1142-1220) is not as well known to Western readers. He ran an apothecary in his early years; after hearing the many troubles of his clients, he left his trade to travel abroad. During his travels, he met many Sufi mystics and, eventually, became one himself. His best-known work is the allegorical Mantiq Al-Tayr, or Conference of the Birds, about a flock who fly the world in search of their leader. His poetry was a source of inspiration to many, including Rumi, who said of him: "Attar roamed the seven cities of love -- We are still just in one alley".
