Dīvān-e Kabīr or Dīvān-e Šams-e Tabrīzī (The Works of Šams Tabrīzī) (Persian: دیوان شمس تبریزی‎) or Dīvān-e Šams is one of Mawlānā Jalāl-ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī''s masterpieces. A collection of lyric poems that contains more than 40,000 verses, it is written in the New Persian language and is considered one of the greatest works of Persian literature.

Dīvān-e Kabīr ("the great divan") contains poems in several different styles of Eastern-Islamic poetry (e.g. odes, eulogies, quatrains, etc.). It contains 44,282 lines (according to Foruzanfar''s edition, which is based on the oldest manuscripts available): 3,229 odes, or ghazals (total lines = 34,662); 44 tarji-bands (total lines = 1698); and 1,983 quatrains (total lines = 7932). Although most of the poems are in New Persian, there are also some in Arabic, and a small number of mixed Persian/Greek and Persian/Turkish poems. Dīvān-e Šams-e Tabrīzī is named in honour of Rumi''s spiritual teacher and friend Shams Tabrizi.
