Persian, transcribed by Abdullah ul Hardy, 1531

Jami (1414-1492) was one of the most prolific and best known Sufi poets of the 15th century and many different collections of his works exist.

This painting depicts a scene from the popular romance and spiritual allegory Layli u Majnun (‘Layli and Majnun’), about two ill-fated lovers. Here Majnun approaches Layli’s encampment hoping to catch sight of her.
