Description :
Masnawi Mawlana Rumi, 'alayhi ar-Rahman.  The "Masnavi" is Hadrat Mawlana Rumi's, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi's, greatest poetic work -  it was composed during the last years of his life. He began it when he was between the ages of 54-57 [about 1258-1261] and continued composing its verses until he died in 1273 CE (with the last story remaining incomplete).

The Masnavi is the greatest work by the Persian mystic Rumi,widely recognised as the greatest Sufi poem ever written and often referred to as 'the Qur'an in Persian.' It consists of a vast compendium of sufi stories, ethical and mystical teachings with rhyming couplets.

*About this Edition :
This is a century old Urdu sharh, presented here in six volumes. It was first published in 1918 by Mawlana Muhammad Nazir Shah Naqshbandi Mujaddidi (Pakistan).

Although the translator is from the Ahl al-Sunnah it has come to our attention that another school of thought has done some editing/tampering in this work. Nevertheless the sharh as a whole is really good and is currently the only sharh available in the urdu language and has been recommended to us. Useful for reference and for Islamic studies.

Mawlana Jalal ad-Din Rumi, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi[d.1207 - 1273 CE

The prominent Persian language poet, thinker and spiritual master, Hazrat Mevlana Jalal al-Din Balkhi-Rumi 'alayhir rahman, was born on the 30th of September 1207 [Common Era] (6th  Rabi ul Awwal 604H) in Balkh, presently Afghanistan. He lived almost all of his life in Konya,  presently Turkey, and died there in 1273CE. Hazrat Mevlana 'alayhir rahman, remains one of  the greatest poet, philosopher, thinker and scholar of Islamic civilisation. 


The most significant and turning point in Mevlana's life is his encounter in 1244 with the  wandering mystic dervish Shams a'l-Din of Tabriz, May Allah be pleased with him. Thence  forward, Mevlana was a changed man, his devotion to his inspiring master Shams a'l-Din  entirely cut him off from his disciples. Because of abuse and threats from the jealous disciples Shams a'l-Din took refuge twice in Damascus, and in 1247 Shams a'l-Din vanished, and it is believed Mevlana's disciples had plotted to kill him.


Mevlana declared that one of his greatest works, the Divan (di'wan), consisting of approximately sixty thousand couplets and one million distiches, was inspired by Shams a'l-Din since Mevlana identified himself with his muse. His other great work, the Mathnawi (Mesnev-i Me'nevi), divided into six books and containing a total of over twenty five thousand couplets record several hundred stories, extracts from the Noble Qur'an, stories about wandering dervishes, biblical stories, all with allegorical and philosophical content.

Mawlana Rume, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, passed away in the year 672 Hijri [1273 Common Era] and his mausoleum in Konya attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year from all corners of the globe.
