The article dwells on the traditions of celebrating ancient Iranian holidays Sad and Navruz after the establishment of Islam in Western Iran on the territory of Ziyarids` and Buvayhids` states; the creation of Arabic-speaking poets of Persian origin serving as a ground. It is underscored that cultural traditions of Iranian peoples exerted a great sway over Arabian literature. Penetration of Persian-Tajik lexical elements into the Arabic language testifies to it; the names of the holidays Sad, Mekhrgon and Navruz in Arabic pronunciation sound as Sadak, Mekhrijahn, Nayruz. The author has studied the works of Arabic-speaking poets of Persian origin, such as Nishopuri Mustavfi, Mekhyor Dailami, Abulkasym al-Matraz and others. He marks that not only poetical productions are devoted to ancient Iranian holidays, but prosaic treatises either; the pattern of the latters is objectified by the book of the famous vezir of Buvayhids Sohib ibn Abod “Kitab al-a`Yad va Fazoili-n-Nayruz” (“The Book about Holidays and Virtues of Navruz”).
