According to The Iran Project,Addressing the event, Head of the Society for the National Heritage of Iran Mahmood Shalouie hoped that Saadi commemoration week would be an opportunity to introduce this great poet's ideology.

Saadi should not just be known as a Persian poet but as a treasure of Iranian Islamic knowledge, he added.
All Iranians and even the whole world know Saadi because he is a messenger for peace, friendship, communication, reconciliation, and pacifism, he noted.

This poet wants to connect all tribes and establish friendship and love among people, he stated.
Derya Örs, the chairman of the Ataturk Higher Institution of Language and History, said that eight centuries after his death, Saadi Shirazi is still alive among people.

The morals of Saadi’s poems and prose are enjoyable and fruitful for people from all walks of life in all generations.

Saadi’s books are Bustan (The Orchard) completed in 1257 and Gulistan (The Flower Garden) in 1258.
In early April, Supreme Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said, “One of the distinguished features of Persian poetry is the production of epistemic and spiritual capital, which is crystallized in the peaks of Persian poetry and the wise and enlightening poems of prominent poets such as Ferdowsi, Nizami, Rumi, Saadi, and Hafez.”
