What do you know about Mevlana Jalal-ud-Din Rumi?

Mevlana who is also known as Rumi, was a philosopher and mystic of Islam, but not a Muslim of the orthodox type. His doctrine advocates unlimited tolerance, positive reasoning, goodness, charity and awareness through love. To him and to his disciples all religions are more or less truth. Looking with the same eye on Muslim, Jew and Christian alike, his peaceful and tolerant teaching has appealed to men of all sects and creeds.

  1. Salam,
    Most of you mentioned is true instead of one thing.He had lived in Turkey.He is the founder of a sufi path called Mawlawism.Yes,he is tolerant to all people from all religions.He invited every one to his school (takka) without regarding the religion or sins.But he’s accepting Islam as the final religion of God and teaching the facts of Qur’an and hadith.

  2. This is an excellent lecture by Prof Whitney Bodman on Mevlana Rumi’s Mathnawi -recounting the dialogue between Iblees and Muawiya, where Shaytan is out-done by Muawiya.

    Mevlana Rumi is the leading mystical poet in the Islamic spiritual tradition, and loved by Muslims (Sufi, Shia and Sunni) across the ages.
