(Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī (Persian: جلالالدین محمد رومی), also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī (جلالالدین محمد بلخى), Mevlânâ/Mawlānā (مولانا, “our master”), Mevlevî/Mawlawī (مولوی, “my master”), and more popularly simply as Rumi (30 September 1207 – 17 December 1273), was a 13th-century Persian poet, Hanafi faqih, Islamic scholar, Maturidi theologian, and Sufi mystic originally from Greater Khorasan in Greater Iran.) http://Wikipedia
You may say; Oh! Of course, Rumi… I know that he is famous enough but, I thought I, as a Persian, might tell some new about him, or at least, his poetry is so orphic that it worth dropping a line about him.
Oh yes, Orphic, Orphan, عرفانی This word actually comes from Orient: has been used as Mystical, Gnostic. Though, Iknow that Orphan is an English word that means a parentless child. I might be still wrong, as I must remember Orpheus in ancient Greece. But, I know that those days, after the Arabs spread their dominance in the East, the intellectuals and artists withdrew to their own world: Orph or Orphan, only to do their works in peace. The most famous among others: Attar, Rumi, Omar Khayyam. And of course, there are many other great poets, like Hafez Shiraz Rūdakī, Daqiqi, Ferdowsi, Sanai, Saadi, Nizami. For more see here.
They have (may unwillingly) had made a social class: The Sufis and the pioneer was Shams-i-Tabrizi whom Rumi, met in 1244 CE and becoming the most famous mystical poet of his time. And as we read his or other’s poems of this sort, we can see that they are not only poems, but they are also science.
Now let’s back to Rumi and his poets, accompanied by Persian words. And also a video clip with a beautiful reading-out voice in Persian.
For sure, I am not jealous, but even proud, to see so many Rumi lovers all around the world.
Rumi’s poems are designed “both aware and unaware,”
as he admits, to bend the intellect of anyone
who tries to read them.Via https://lithub.com/rumi-priestly-poet-of-love-and-master-of-the-one-liner/
