Zolālī composed seven epic poems called "Sab'a-ye sayyāreh" (The seven planets) written in different metres imitating both Nezāmī and Rūmī.
The best known and by far the longest of these epic poems is "Soltān Mahmūd va Ayāz" about the legendary love of Soltān Mahmūd of Ğazneh for his slave boy Ayāz, a theme also used by Sa'dī in his "Golestān"
