TEHRAN -- Poet Khalil Omrani, who was mostly known for his religious compositions, died of a stroke at 48 at a Tehran hospital on Sunday.
He went into a coma after heart failure on November 26 and died of a stroke on Sunday morning, his son, Iman, told the Persian service of ISNA.
He was born and raised in Dayyer, a port near Bandar Bushehr in Persian Gulf. He was admitted into the Bushehr Teacher Education Center in 1982. Two years later, he retuned to his hometown and began a career teaching at a school where he had studied.
He left the town in 1986 to study Persian literature at Yazd University. He came back to Dayyer and pursued his teaching career at Ayatollah Taleqani High School in 1991. However, he quit his job one year later and was appointed as the deputy director of the Culture and Islamic Guidance Office in Dayyer.
In 1995, he relocated to Tehran and began teaching at a high school and shortly afterwards, his first collection, “The Forgotten Pearls”, was published.
His credits also include “The song of the Presence”, “The Weeping Heart of Bam” and several other collection.
