He is recognized for the quality of his writings and for the depth of his social and moral thoughts. Saadi is widely recognized as one of the greatest poets of the classical literary tradition, earning him the nickname "Master of Speech" (استاد سخن ostâd-e soxan) or simply "Master" (استاد ostâd) among Persian scholars.
