Developmental Stages of Irfani Poetry

Muhammadjon Imomnazarov, Kamola Jumaeva


This article discusses the stages of development of irfani poetry in Persian classical literature of the XII-XV centuries. It describes the relationship between the two aspects of the problem, the first aspect of the concepts of tasavvuf and irfan, and the second aspect of what is meant by tasavvufi literature or irfani literature. In illuminating the stages of development of irfani poetry, we have divided this 8-century process of creative development into three major stages, taking into account the fact that the literature of the Muslim region has undergone a great development in terms of perception and creative reflection of the world during the VIII-XV centuries.  In this article, the reason why irfani poetry is divided into three major stages and the factors that motivate it have been proved by providing evidence.
