We all have a nostalgic feeling towards Hafez and Saadi Shirin Sokhan, and today Hafez’s divan is next to the Quran and the keys in the house of all Iranians, and we recite Hafez on different occasions.
Asking the reason for the permanence of some great personalities, he said: “What determines the permanence of history is the connection that people find with the Qur’an and God, and Hafiz has found this honor because it is the language of the unseen.” To achieve a great meaning.
Ismaili said that Hafez is tied to the historical identity of Iranians, noting: “Many of the greats of our contemporary history, including the late Imam and the Supreme Leader of the Revolution, along with theological and philosophical behavior have a special view of Hafez, as well as Martyr Motahhari who contributes to improving Iranian identity And our Islam has, it uses Hafiz for this meaning.

According to Ismaili, the leaders of the Islamic Revolution were able to artistically maintain a single identity by using Hafez, Saadi, Rumi, etc. in the face of a historical distortion and duplication between Islam and Iranianness.
