Product Description :

A collection of stories from Rumi's classic opus "The Mathnawi", this astounding compilation of over 24,000 verses is carefully adapted for younger audiences. Best known for his spiritual poetry and the spiritual whirling of the Mevlevi sufi practice he inspired, Rumi's influence continues to spread around the world.

The  fables in this collection have been selected and abridged from the Mathnawi. The Mathnawi is a literary masterpiece that was composed by Mawlana Jalal al-Dim Rumi, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, a great Sufi master of the thirteenth century (Common Era) and one of the most published poets in the West today. The Mathnawi was a call for unity and virtue in a world full of conflict, wars and migrations. It emphasises human virtue and the development of the spiritual insight of the heart.

The manner in which events and situations are interpreted in the stories reflects a strong, lively cultural and literary heritage of the East. At the end of every tale, the writer addresses his own heart, drawing attention to just some of the wisdom which can be gained from the fable, but readers may find much more.

This book is suitable for ages 12 years and over.

Tales from Rumi is a collection of the best stories from the renowned world classic known as the mathnawi, writen by Hazrat Mevlana Rumi, may Allah be pleased with him.
