Works[edit]

His main published work is Şîrîn û Xesrew (Shirin and Khasraw). Despite being a master in Persian language and Persian literature, he was in favor of using Kurdish in literature, as indicated in one of his poems:

Although it's said that Persian's sweet as sugar,

For me is Kurdish sweeter still.
Clearly, in this perfidious world,

Everyone is happiest with his own mother tongue.
