Ahli Shirazi

Persian poet, 1454-1535

Ahli Shirazi (1454 – 1535) was a Persian poet, who lived in Shiraz.


  • One night I saw Master Hafiz in a dream;
    I said, 'O thou who art peerless in excellence and learning
    Wherefore didst thou take to thyself this verse of Yazid,
    Notwithstanding all this virtue and eminence?'
    He answered, 'Thou understandest not this matter;
    The infidel's goods are lawful spoil to the true believer!
