The conference also focused on the relationship between Hakim Omar Khayyam and Avicenna, Khayyam’s reputation in Bangladesh, Khayyam’s studies in Turkey, the challenge of translating Khayyam’s quatrains into German, and Khayyam’s studies in Bengali literature.

The five-hour event was held online with the participation of a number of Iranian and foreign scholars and researchers, Mehr News Agency reported.

Addressing the conference, Reza Nazemian, who teaches Arabic language at Allameh Tabataba’i University, expressed contentment about holding such online conferences and hoped that further similar events would be held in the near future.

Omar Khayyam is a great Persian poet, astronomer and mathematician.

Khayyam is chiefly known to English-speaking readers through the translations by the English writer, Edward Fitzgerald, of a collection of his quatrains in the ‘Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam’ (1859).
