The national conference on Nizami studies was held in Urmia with the cooperation of Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance General Directorate of West Azerbaijan Province and Afaq Institute of Higher Education on March 14, 2023 in Urmia in two sessions of morning and afternoon with the presence of a group of Persian language scholars and Nizami enthusiasts.

Alireza Nowruzi, Director General of Culture and Islamic Guidance of West Azerbaijan Province, on the sidelines of the event, referred to Hakim Nizami as one of the most famous poets of Iran and said: “The conference is held with the cooperation of Afaq Institute of Higher Education in Urmia with an aim to honor Hakim Nizami position.”

The Iranian identity is a lasting legacy of the ancestors and the government is determined to protect this heritage through explanatory and cultural jihad. Safeguarding Nizami as a religious and national heritage is a necessity.”

“We take the coincidence of the 15th of Sha’ban and the commemoration of Hakim Nizami as a good omen. These occasions can lead the world`s science and culture from darkness to light and open the gates to a bright future. Our duty should be nothing short of following the way of those who have taken action, fought, and been martyred in the way of Allah”, he added.

Stating that honoring Nizami as a religious and national legacy is necessary, he said: “The conference was held in order to introduce the rich works of this great poet to all those interested in poetry and literature.”

Main themes of the conference include recognition of Nizami`s works, music in Nizami`s works, psychology in Nizami`s works, patriotism and philanthropy in Nizami`s works, exploration in Nizami`s thought, astrological beliefs in Nizami`s works, recreation of characters in Nizami`s works, color and its symbolic concepts in Nizami`s Khamsa and comparative study of symbolic concepts of quadrupeds in Nizami`s works.
