Very little is known about his life. Many semi-miraculous mythical tales were woven around Hafez after his death. At the same time, he is said to have known by heart the works of Rumi, Saadi, Farid ud-Din, and Nizami. Let not the pious judge the meek; Each for his own deeds will speak. Everyone is seeking love, sober or drunk; Everywhere a house of love, yet so unique. Let me keep my hope of eternal grace, Behind the veil, who is good, who the freak?

His life and poems have become the subjects of much analysis, commentary and interpretation, influencing postth century Persian writing more than any other author. Hafez is best known for his poems that can be described as " antinomian " [7] and with the medieval use of the term "theosophical"; the term " theosophy " in the 13th and 14th centuries was used to indicate mystical work by "authors only inspired by the holy books " as distinguished from theology.
