The author of “Mukhtār-Nāma” is Attar of Nishapur.  Attar of Nishapur known as Abū Ḥamīd bin Abū Bakr Ibrāhīm, or by his pen-names Farīd ud-Dīn, was a Persian poet, theoretician of Sufism, and hagiographer from Nishapur who had an immense and lasting influence on Persian poetry and Sufism. The Mausoleum of Attar of Nishapur (or Attar Neyshaburi) is located in Nishapur in northeastern Iran. It’s located near the Mausoleum of Omar Khayyám. The Ilāhī-Nama or Elāhī-Nāmeh is one of the famous poetic work of Attar, consisting of 6500 verses. In terms of form and content, it has some similarities with Bird Parliament. The story is about a king who is confronted with the materialistic and worldly demands of his six sons. The King tries to show the temporary and senseless desires of his six sons by retelling them a large number of spiritual stories. The first son asks for the daughter of the king of the fairies, the second for the mastery of magic, the third for the cup of Jamshid, which has the property of displaying the whole world, the fourth for the water of life, the fifth for the ring of Solomon, which has control over fairies and demons, and the sixth for mastering alchemy. Each of these desires is discussed first literally, and shown to be absurd, and then it is explained how there is an esoteric interpretation of each one.
