There is disagreement over the exact dates of his birth and death, but several sources confirm that he lived almost a hundred years.

Different stories are told about the death of Attar. One common story is as follows. He was captured by a Mongol. One day someone came along and offered a thousand pieces of silver for him. Attar told the Mongol not to sell him for that price since the price was not right. The Mongol accepted Attar’s words and did not sell him. Later, someone else came along and offered a sack of straw for him.

Attar counseled the Mongol to sell him because that was how much he was worth. The Mongol soldier became very angry and cut off Attar’s head. So he died to teach a lesson. Attar, much better-known by his pen names as Farid al-Din and Attar (‘the pharmacist’), was a Persian and Muslim poet, Sufi, theoretician of mysticism, and hagiographer.
