Mysticism includes certain stages and degrees which the seeker of the path of truth must go through. Many writers, including Rumi, Sanai, Jami, and Attar, have devoted their literary works to recounting these stages and degrees. In the meantime, Attar, as the pioneer of mystical literature, was followed by many other poets and writers. The tradition of seclusion and the corner of monasteries was a refuge that many such people sought and this gradually led to the creation of mystical literature.
