Omar Al-Khayyám, A legendary Persian philosopher, mathematician, astronomer, physician, poet, and polymath.

Omar Khayyám was a Persian philosopher, mathematician, astronomer, physician, poet, and polymath. He was able to decipher and solve all cubic calculations, and he found new ways to understand Euclid's same axiom. Khayyam also designed the Jalali calendar, a straightforward solar calendar still used in many countries.

He also wrote articles on machines, geography, and music. His importance as a philosopher and teacher, as well as his few remaining philosophical works, did not receive as much attention as his scientific and poetic writings. Imam Zamakhshari wrote to him as “the philosopher of the world”.

Numerous sources have confirmed that he taught Ibn Sina's philosophy in Nishapur for decades where Khayyám was born and buried and that his mausoleum still exists today as a masterpiece of Iranian architecture and art that many people visit every year.

In addition to Outside Iran countries and Persian countries, Khayyám has also contributed to literature and society through translation and scholarly work. Such a great influence among several others was in English-speaking countries; The English scholar Thomas Hyde (1636-1703) became the first non-Persian to study him.

The most influential was Edward FitzGerald (1809-83), who made Khayyám a well-known poet of the Middle East with his celebrated translation.
