Photographer's Note

This is a reflection of the Hafez Tomb.

Khaje Shamsoddin Mohammad Shirazi,the great Composer of lyric poems whose pen name is Hafez was born in Shiraz in the early part of the 8 century Hegira and passed away in the same place in 791 or 792 A.H/1384 A.D.
Nothing is available on the date of birth in the old authentic and documented sources.
Early in his life,Hafez began learning the Quran,Arabic literature and Islamic Knowledge and became the most eminent of all in his era in the interpretation of Quran,theology,philosophy and literature.
He knew the Quran by heart with 14 narrations!For this reason he was known by nom de plume of Hafez(one who knows the Quran by heart).

Iranian loves him and his poems,his poems has heavy meaning but very popular and full of love and hope,You can't find a house in Iran without a book of his poems,believe it!,you can find two book in all of Iranian houses,The holy Quran and Hafez's poems!

Everyday,all the time,his tomb is full of tourists,and very busy.
