Sadijev Gulistān ili Đulistan pripada islamskoj književnoj tradiciji koja odgaja i disciplinira ljudski ego formiranjem moralnog ja. Njegov Đulistan je ružičnjak poučnih priča – hikaja i anegdota čijom se naracijom čitatelju na jedinstven način, pomoću suptilnih opservacija o životu i ljudima, prenose više pragmatične nego filozofski intonirane poruke, koje ukazuju na pravila smislenoga i harmoničnoga života. I u današnjem svijetu i poretku stvari Sadijev Đulistan je dobrodošlo štivo, s obzirom na to da promovira univerzalne vrijednosti koje su svevremene i uvijek aktuelne.

Abstract

Sa‘di’s Gulistan belongs to the Islamic literary tradition which raises and disciplines human ego through the formation of the moral self. His Gulistan is a rosary of moral stories – hikayas and anecdotes which convey to readers messages that are more pragmatic than philosophical, through subtle observations about life and people, which point to the rules of a meaningful and harmonious life. In today’s world and order of things, Sa‘di’s Gulistan is an important text, as it was in the past, since it promotes universal values which are timeless and always current.

Keywords:  the 13th century, Islamic moralistic literature, Sa‘di’s Gulistan, hikaya, motivation story.
