Poets in different periods have used the color element to induce their desired meanings and concepts. The color element is one of the key and widely used points in Attar's Masnavi. He has used the power of associating the meanings of colors artistically and often using rhetorical elements. This research shows how Attar has used the element of color and which meanings and concepts have been expressed and displayed with the help of colors. The data collection tool and the data collection method are libraries. The research method is descriptive-analytical.
Achieving the role of colors in expressing mental meanings and concepts, as well as the use of abstract colors to express some of the important mystical concepts desired by the poet, are among the achievements of this research.
The result shows that in Attar Masnavi, the frequency of two colors, black and white, is higher than other colors and abstract colors have the lowest frequency. The most desirable colors in Attar's intellectual system are abstract colors and have much broader meanings than ordinary colors and are often made by the poet's own mind. Sometimes colors in the lyrical and romantic semantic context have found a semantic and rhetorical function to express physical beauty in order to explain mystical teachings.
