RUMI’S MEETING WITH SHAMS
After Burhan al-Din Tirmidhi passed away, Rumi began lecturing in the madrasa in Konya and training students. He had taken his first lessons from his father, the king of scholars. On the one hand, Rumi lectured in the seminary, held conversations with those seeking the truth, and answered their questions; on the other hand, he guided the lovers of God and warned them.This way Rumi became the sultan of scholars in the religions sciences and other sciences, like his father, and he also became the sultan of gnostics in the area of Sufism. The public admired Rumi very much. In the view of the sultan, notables, and the common folk, he was known as a most elevated Muslim, an insan al-kamil, because of his devotion to worship, dedication to fasting and praying, virtues, humanity, graciousness, modesty despite his great knowledge, abstinence from the world, his commitment to the Muhammadi path just like his father, and his crystal clear life.

“beshno in nay chon shikaayat mikonad

Listen to the reed how it tells a tale,
complaining of separations
“Listen from the sound of Rabab
and its crying and moaning”
by Ibrahim Gamard (8/06)
The popularity of Hazrat-e Mawlânâ Jalâluddîn Muhammad Rûmî’s poetry in America, together with the wide recognition of the name of “Rûmî” is an amazing development. This article examines a key factor that has contributed to this popularization: the false view in many Western books and articles that sufism is something separate from Islam.
THE SUFFERING OF THE WHEAT
“You resent for what is happening to you, and you are getting upset, aren’t you? No matter what has become of you, you have not suffered as much as what the wheat has suffered . Look at the wheat!
