In fact, she initially went to Paris to pursue her PhD in law, but changed her major to Illuminationism and wanted to write her dissertation on Molavi, but she left it due to the sudden death of her father.

She started her literary career with writing short stories in Mashhad. Her major work was the novel Khaneye Edrisiha lit. The Edrissis’ House (خانه ادریسیها). Some of her short stories are: The Crossroad, After Summer, The In-transitory Journey, and her other novels include: Two Landscapes and Tehran Nights.
