The famous Iranian poet, Muhammad Hussein Shahriyar

Compiled by: Syed Ali Shahbaz
On September 17, 1988 AD, the famous Iranian poet, Mohammad Hussein Shahriyar, passed away at the age of 84. Born in the northwestern Iranian city of Tabriz, he completed his studies at Tehran’s Dar ul-Fonoun Academy, and took up the study of medicine, which he did not complete. He published his first collection of poems at the age of 23.
His poems are in a variety of styles, including lyrics, odes and quatrains. His poetry was often critical of the British-installed and US-backed Pahlavi regime. He stood by the Iranian nation during the Islamic Revolution, and also composed moving panegyrics in praise of Prophet Mohammad (SAWA) and the Infallible Ahl al-Bayt.
Among his famous poems is the one titled “Haydar Baba” in Azeri language, in addition to the beautiful Persian masterpiece in praise of the Commander of the Faithful, Imam Ali (AS). Shahriyar was deeply attached to the Holy Qur'an.
