Von Hammer (according to Sprengers Oriental Catalogue) speaks of Omar as a Free-thinker, and a great opponent of Sufism; perhaps because, while holding much of their Doctrine, he would not pretend to any inconsistent severity of morals.

Extrait: ...edited the Poems himself some years ago. He may now as little approve of my Version on one side, as of Mons. Nicolas' Theory on the other. What historical Authority has Mons.
