Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'> A nearly-complete copy of the <i>Dīvān</i> by Ḥasan Sijzī Dihlavī (ca. 1253–1338), a significant medieval Sufi poet of India. An early proponent of the Persian <i>ghazal</i>, or 'lyric poem', his style tremendously influenced later Persian poets such as Ḥafiẓ Shīrāzī (1315–1390). A close friend of another famous early Indian poet Amīr Khusraw Dihlavī (1253–1325), both followed both men followed the spiritual master Niẓām al-Dīn Awliyā (1238–1325) who led the of the Chīshtīyyah Sufi Order, beside whom they are buried in the <i>Niẓām al-Dīn Dargāh</i> shrine complex in Delhi. Munʻim al-Dīn al-Awḥadī, scion of a prominent family of artists in Shiraz, completed this richly illuminated manuscript in Jumādà I, year 913 AH (Sept.–Oct. 1507 CE), soon after the establishment of the Safavid dynasty.</p>
