Attar (1145-1221), was an apothecary who lived near Nishapur. Shaykh al-Attar, may Allah be pleased with him,
whom legend describes as having taken to the Sufi path in earnest after
he witnessed a dervish surrender his soul outside his shop, went on to
become one of the most famous Sufi poets in history, author of many classical works. His works were the inspiration of Mawlana Rumi and many other mystical poets.
'Attar, along with Sana'i were two of the greatest influences on Rumi in
his Sufi views. Rumi has mentioned both of them with the highest esteem
several times in his poetry. Rumi praises 'Attar as follows: "Attar
roamed the seven cities of love... we are still just in one alley."More Dars e Nizami Texts.
