20 Inspirational Quotes by Rumi

Rumi (Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī) was a 13th century Persian, Islamic scholar, theologian, Sunni Muslim, Sufi mystic. His major work is the Matnawīye Manawī, a six-volume poem regarded by many to be one of the greatest works of mystical poetry.

Deemed as “most popular poet” and the “best selling poet” in the United States, his poems have been widely translated into many of the world’s languages and transposed into various formats.

Rumi’s essence of theosophy is the unity of being. According to Professor Majid M. Naini: “Rumi’s life and transformation provide true testimony and proof that people of all religions and backgrounds can live together in peace and harmony. Rumi’s visions, words, and life teach us how to reach inner peace and happiness so we can finally stop the continual stream of hostility and hatred and achieve true global peace and harmony.”
