First poem in Modern Persian


Modern Persian (AKA, Farsi/Parsi) is a southwestern Iranian language. It is a continuation of Old Persian and Middle Persian (AKA, “Pahlavi” or “Parsig”) languages. 

It is hard to give an exact date but Old Persian was spoken and was put to writing from at least 500 BC or maybe older. Middle Persian from 300 BC until 800 CE and Modern Persian from 800 CE until today.

After Muslim invasion of Iran which began in 633 became victorious, some Arab rulers starting with the Umayyad caliphate banned speaking of Persian and other Iranian languages. 

For example in region of Khwarazm, according to Abu Rayhan Biruni in his book, “Kitab al-athar al-baqiyah `an al-qurun al-khaliyah”, this happened:

وقتی قتیبه ابن مسلم سردار بار دوم به خوارزم رفت و آن را باز گشود هرکس را که خط خوارزمی می نوشت و از  تاریخ و علوم و اخبار گذشته آگاهی داشت از دم تیغ بی دریغ گذراند و موبدان و هیربدان قوم را یکسره هلاک نمود و کتابهاشان همه بسوزانید و تباه کرد

“When “Qutayba ibn Muslim” went to Khwarazm for the second time and conquered it again, anyone who wrote the Khwarazmi language and knew about history, sciences and news was killed same was done to Zoroastrian priests, all of their books was burned”

According to the book “Tarikh-e Sistan” one of the oldest books remaining in Modern Persian written in 11th century, the first poem in Modern Persian was written for Yaghub Laith Saffari (October 25, 840 – June 5, 879) founder of Saffarid Dynasty, one of the first Persian dynasties after the invasion.

After a major victory Yaghub threw a celebration. This is a quote from the book concerning the first poem and that celebration

وقتی یعقوب لیث صفاری منشور حکومت سیستان و بلوچستان و کابل و هرات گرفت، “شعرا او را شعر گفتندی به تازی. چون این شعر برخواندند او عالم نبود، درنیافت.

"محمد بن وصیف” حاضر بود و دبیر رسایل او بود و ادب نیکو دانست و بدان روزگار نامهٔ پارسی نبود. پس یعقوب گفت: چیزی که من درنیابم چرا باید گفت؟ محمد وصیف پس شعر پارسی گفتن گرفت و پیش از او کسی نگفته بود

“When Yaghub Laith Saffari received the rulership of Sistan, Baluchistan, Kabul and Herat and become their ruler, the poets wrote poems for him, in Arabic. When they read these poems to him, since he didn’t knew Arabic, he didn’t understand them and said, “Why should you read me something in a language that I don’t understand”. Muhammad ibn Vasif, his letter writer was present and he knew poetry very well, in those days there was no book in Persian, so Muhammad Ibn Vasif start reading him poems in Persian and before him no one had done that”.
