For long he was famous for his scientific features, however, later on his stanzas, were introduced to the world, the west in particular, through the translations provided by the nineteenth century British poet Fitzgerald. These stanzas were later translated into different languages such as Italian, German, Russian. The objective of the present paper is to provide a biography of this poet, as well as introducing his philosophical viewpoints, his poetry, particularly his stanzas and their Arabic translations.
