Reflection of Sad-Holiday in the Works of Persian-Tajik Poets (IX-X Centuries) Written in Arabic


Homidiyon Hikmatshoh Komili


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”).
