'Alî 'Imâdu d-Dîn Nasîmî, (1369-1417), was a 14th-century Azeri or Iraqi-Turkmen, Hurûfi poet. Known mostly by his pen name (or takhallus) of Nesîmî, he composed one divan in Azerbaijani, one in Persian, and a number of poems in Arabic. He is considered one of the greatest Turkic mystical poets of the late 14th and early 15th centuries and one of the most prominent early divan masters in Turkic / Turkish literary history (the language used in this divan is close to Azerbaijani). Hurufism (Arabic: Hurufiyyah) was a Sufi doctrine based on the mysticism of letters (ḥurûf), which originated in Astrabad and spread to areas of western Persia and Anatolia in the late 14th and early 15th centuries. Extremely rare.
