About Naser Khosrow’s book
Nasser Khosrow is a pure idealist who has tried to take a completely anti-modern path in well-to-do, passive, frightened and polluted societies. On the eve of old age, when the need for stability and tranquility usually makes people more conservative, he turns away from the carefree and comfortable life he could have in the beautiful city of Balkh and among his family and friends, pursuing a lofty ideal that promised human liberation. , Takes refuge in narrow and remote valleys surrounded by towering mountains.
Such a person, of course, when confronted with a large number of greedy or intimidated people of his day, has the right to look at them and the ways and customs of their slaves, and to see himself far beyond them. Nasser Khosrow can be considered, in today’s interpretation, a humanist who sees man as the center and axis of divine creation and therefore has full freedom, authority and responsibility for his destiny.
