Mirzā Abbās Bastāmi (1798-1857) known by his pen name Foroughi was a Persian poet of Qajar dynasty era. He was born in Karbala, when his family were in the journey of Karbala. He later came to Sari city of Māzandarān with his family and later moved to Tehran. He lived a period of time in Bastām and has been called Bastāmi since then. He also worked for Shojā-o-soltān and chose his pen name based on Shojā-o-soltān's request, since he had a child named Forough-o-dolleh.
