Radif is a specific feature of Persian language. Radif contains music and shows a poet's power. This article tries to determine statistically the high frequency of radif in 'Attar Neyshaburi's poetry. 'Attar is one of the poets that has tried his hand at different types of radif. With detailed statistical study of sonnets and odes of 'Attar's divan we concluded that 473 of 633 sonnets have radifs; that means 74.72 percent of his poems are musical sonnets. The majority of his radifs are verbs that not only they have enriched the music of poetry, but have also played a significant role in dynamism and mobility of his poems. In addition, they have helped to expand and improve figures of speech and to induce feelings and thoughts of the poet. These radifs help create unity between imagination and thought, cover up defective rhymes, form new concepts, adapt poems and radifs of others, cause unity between poet and reader and bring lexical deviation.
