Baharestan, (in Persian: بهارستان), (pronounced as Bǎhārestān or Bahaarestaan) (meaning the land of spring or the spring orchard), is a Persian book written by Jami that contains prose. It has stories, tales and moral advice mainly in prose, but also in poetry. Baharestan was divided into 8 chapters, an introduction and a final part. Each of its chapters is called a rowzeh (from Arabic rawzah, meaning paradise or heaven). Jami wrote this book in a year in the 9th century after Muhammad's departure to Medina. In the introduction of Baharestan, Jami stated that he had written this book with the style of Saadi Shirazi's Gulistan; for his son who was ten years old at the time and was studying. Baharestan has contents about Sufism and mysticism. There are 469 verses of poetry in this book; 16 verses being in Arabic and the rest in Persian. Baharestan has saj' in its texts and the type of its prose is rhymed prose; i.e. it is rhythmic. Each chapter in Baharestan has a specific topic; for example, in the seventh chapter, the topic is the life and the biography of some poets.
