Qasem-e Anvar Qāsem-e Anvār (Qāsim-i Anwār) ( Persian: قاسم انوار; 1356 – 1433) was an Iranian poet and Sufi. Qāsem-e Anwār wrote ḡazals, molammaʿs, and tuyuḡs in a simple Azeri Turkish. He was a Timurid propagandist and was born in  Sarab, Tabriz.
Qasem-e Anar is the author of a popular
Masnavi entitled Anis al-arifin (Mystics' Companion), an explanation of Sufi terminology, and also a divan of Sufi poetry.
A well-known Sufi sheikh who had a large following in
Herat, Qāsem-e Anvar was suspected of collaboration with an assailant who stabbed Shahrukh and was banished from Herat.
Qasem-e Anvar also spent many years in
Gilan and learnt the vernacular of the region and has even a ghazal in Gilaki.
از هر طرفی چهره گشایی که منم
در هر صفتی جلوهگر آیی که منم
با اینهمه گهگاه غلط میافتم
 نادان کس و بله روستایی که منم
You show me your face everywhere I see
and you try to get any good attribute
so I sometimes make a mistake that's why
I am an ignorant person or maybe I'm rural
