Rumi…. Have you ever heard of him?
Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī, Mevlânâ/Mawlānā (“our master”)and more popularly simply as Rumi (30 September 1207 – 17 December 1273), was a 13th-century Persian poet, faqih, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic originally from Greater Khorasan.
He was an amazing poet! Whose words are more than divine. Love was felt pure, when penned by him.
He is a very famous and popular poet, whose works are bestsellers even now. If you are a poet, or you aspire to be one, you must definitely know about this great person’s works. If you have, then I am quite sure that you must’ve loved him, adored him, possibly worshipped him!
Here are some verses written by him!
Why should I seek? I am the same as
He. His essence speaks through me.
I have been looking for myself!
In December 1273, Rumi fell ill; he predicted his own death and composed the well-known ghazal, which begins with the verse:
How doest thou know what sort of king I have within me as companion?
Do not cast thy glance upon my golden face, for I have iron legs.
In other verses in the Masnavi, Rumi describes in detail the universal message of love:
The lover’s cause is separate from all other causes
Love is the astrolabe of God’s mysteries.
Today I am going to share with you some of the amazing quotes written by him which is truly inspiring!
When you are blessed with more than you can imagine, learn to use them, before it’s too late. Utilise them, to explore the world around you. Use them, to fly beyond the boundaries you set for yourself. They say “magic” doesn’t exist. But friends, magic exists. And you are the magician. You have the talent to perform magic, with your skill, your brain, your heart. Let’s rock with that one!!😉😋😜
