Born in Nishapur, in north-east Iran. Several sources confirm that he lived for about 100 years. He is traditionally said to have been killed by Mongol invaders. His tomb can be seen today in Nishapur.

As a younger man, Attar went on pilgrimage to Makka Mukarramah and traveled extensively throughout the region, seeking wisdom in Egypt, Damascus, India, and other areas, before finally returning to his home city of Nishapur.

The name Attar means herbalist or druggist, which was his profession. It is said that he saw as many as 500 patients a day in his shop, prescribing herbal remedies which he prepared himself, and he wrote his poetry while attending to his patients. read more

People often say – “Find good people and leave bad ones.”
But I say, “Find the good in people and ignore the bad in them, because No one is born perfect.”

The mountains of Makkah
I hear your call
I don t come stunning
But I come running

To Allah I pray
That where I want to stay
Islam is what I have been tasked
O Allah forgiveness is what I asked

I have not been there
To visit the Kabah is where
Not only to visit, and shop
Im going to bring my deen to the TOP!!!

Not forgetting to pay my respects
To the one messenger that brought us the word
Peace be Upon Him

To obey Allah, and not another, and not associate
Allah with any other&

Ya Allah I yearn for your acceptance
Will it be crazy, to leave this Muhabbat place as a new born Baby

Everyone yearns for, there Hajj to be accepted
Hopefully the world, will not be so swirled

In world desires, only the desire, and to be admired by
Our Creator Allah&

I make sincere Duaa
To my Allah,
That all the Hajjees, sin may you have none
For such a great deed you have done

A small boy was looking at the red ripe tomatoes growing in the farmer's garden. "I'll give you my two pennies for that tomato," said the boy pointing to a beautiful, large, ripe fruit hanging on the vine.

"No," said the farmer, "I get a dime for a tomato like that one."

The small boy pointed to a smaller green one, "Will you take two pennies for that one?"

"Yes," replied the farmer, "I'll give you that one for two cents."

"OK," said the lad, sealing the deal by putting the coins in the farmer's hand, "I'll pick it up in about a week."
