Sufism is mysticism in Islam characterized by its spiritual values, peaceful practices and doctrines. It is Iranian’s way of opposition against strict interpretation of the caliphate in Islam to regain their independence and identity. Sufism has had diversified deep effects in different aspects of Iranian’s life including poetry, Art and Architecture. Rumi (Molavi), the world-famous Iranian poet is one of the most well- known sufism icons in the world.

Artistic designs inspired by Sufism are deep and aesthetically pleasing. Regular geometric patterns in Sufi-influenced architecture reflect the depth of the artist’s thinking and the innumerable dimensions of the universe.
