In Naser Khosrow School is the work of Mahmoud Hakimi.

The first time I met Nasser Khosrow was when I was in the fifth year of elementary school, and a Persian teacher asked us to recite the poem “From us to us”, which means the beautiful poem of the eagle. The eagle, which had a surprise pride with its flight, the same pride caused him to fall, and finally “he said, ‘We complain that it’s up to us.’

Later, when I did research on different religions and sects, because I came to the Ismaili religion, I realized that it is not possible to know the history of this religion and the beliefs of the Ismailis without knowing Naser Khosrow’s thoughts and ideas.
It was that I studied his life, poems, and travelogue, and became aware of the fact that Nasser Khosrow was a wise man who knew the value of the Dari word and praised virtue, truth, radiance, and freedom. Naser Khosrow’s poems are a mixture of feeling, emotion, imagination and thought. And what is clearly evident throughout his divan is the power of creativity, grace, knowledge, honesty, passion, faith, fearlessness, and contempt for flattering and flattering poets.

According to his writings in Naser Khosrow’s travelogue, at the age of forty, he had a dream one night when someone said to him, “How much would you like to drink from this wine to deprive people of wisdom?” “If you are smart, it’s better,” Nasser Khosrow replied. The man said, “A sage cannot be said to be the one who leads people to anesthesia and ignorance. “Something must increase wisdom and intelligence.” Nasser Khosrow asked, “Where do I get this from?” “The end was for the seeker,” he said, pointing to the qibla.
