The way Rumi spoke about the woman


"Love is the astrolabe of truth!" so said Rumi - the most widely read Islamic author, after the Prophet Muhammad.
Those who do not feel
That it is Love that attracts them,
Like a river;
Those who do not drink the dawn
Like a key bowl of water;
Who does not taste the sunset
Like an evening meal;
Those who do not want to change -
Let them sleep.
This Love is above the teachings of theologians,
These old tricks and hypocrisy.
If you hope this way
Improve the mind, -
Continue to sleep.
I've thrown my mind
I tore all my clothes to shreds
And threw her away.
If you haven't stripped naked
Wrap up in graceful
Robe of words -
And sleep.

The lover does not calculate the odds.
He believes that he came from God without anything,
Like a causeless gift
So he gives for no reason,
Or calculations, or restrictions.
Lovers do not demand from God
no evidence.
Do not put him to the test or knock on the door
With questions about profit and loss.

Jalaladdin Rumi is the greatest Sufi poet who lived in the 13th century in Asia Minor. He confessed the teachings of his father. Under his guidance, he practiced Sufism and acquired a lot of knowledge about spiritual matters and the secrets of the spiritual world. After the death of his parent in 1231, Jalaladdin inherited his position and became a prominent religious teacher. He preached in the Konya mosques. By the time the preacher was 24 years old, the young man had established himself as a knowledgeable scholar in the field of religious science. Grateful contemporaries called him Mevlana ("Our Lord"), considering Rumi to be their spiritual mentor. Rumi was born where Tajikistan is today, lived most of his life in Anatolia, Turkey, and wrote poetry in four languages: Persian, Arabic, Turkish and Greek. He was a contemporary of Genghis Khan.
Rumi is one of the most prolific poets in the world, having written over 70,000 lines of poetry.

Unlike all other famous poets, Rumi began writing poetry at the ripe old age of 37. The greatest fame was brought to Rumi by the poem "Mesnevi and Manavi", created in the last years of his life, containing an interpretation of the basic tenets of Sufism. Rumi illustrated his theoretical propositions with parables borrowed from the folklore of the peoples of the East.

Rumi also wrote a number of philosophical works, among which I would like to especially highlight "Fihi ma fihi" ("The essence of things").
Rumi's poetry is studied in the East in special schools that have existed from the 13th century to the present day from India to Mauritania.

If you are carrying a heavy bag, do not forget to look into it.
And make sure that the inside is bitter or sweet.
If it's worth carrying with you, carry it
Otherwise, shake out the bag
And free yourself from fruitless efforts and dishonor.
Only put in your bag
What is worthy to be handed over to the righteous Master.

Rumi spoke of the woman like this:
“A woman is not only beloved. Not only a creature, but also a creator. How many people are able to understand the creator? How many men understand a woman? Accustomed to darkness, the light of the Sun is blinding. Is it not because the fuqaha, burying themselves like worms in their books, tell women to cover their faces, to lock them in harems, not to listen to their speeches and not even to carve their name on a tombstone, because they, accustomed to the darkness of learned ignorance, cannot stand the blinding light a woman's heart? They refer to the verse of the Koran: "Husbands are above wives." But repeating other people's words does not mean understanding their meaning. During the time of the Prophet Muhammad, women did not hide their faces, and how many of them were glorified in deed and word! Husbands are not born, they become. In courage and maturity, many women are taller than men. "
"The prophet who conquered the whole world with his word, begged his wife: "Talk to me, about Aisha."
The Prophet said that women conquer wise men with hearts, but stupid dorks keep women in the shackles of animal cruelty.
The latter have neither kindness, nor nobility, nor love, because they themselves are ruled only by animal instincts.
Love and kindness are human qualities, and anger and lust are animals.
A woman is not only a "sweetness" for a man, she is the light of God! " - Mesnavi (1, 2434 - 2435)

There is no more beautiful friend than you in the world!
There is no greater happiness than watching your face,
In both my worlds, you are my best friend
On everything that is sweet to us - your seal lies!
Blossom and rejoice in your soul, eternal spring,
May your look please your fans
Who will look at you without heartfelt joy,
Let him take shame and shame!
Circles around you, I would be glad even for the dust,
In the hope that she touched your feet!
Resentment from you would make me laugh
I could see attention to myself in them.
In whom there are souls, at least not a large share,
He could not live his life without love for you,
And dismantling a strand of your magic hair,
An intelligent person will turn out to be a fool!
Close your eyes! Let the heart be the eye
And with this eye you will see another world
From conceit with a decisive refusal,
You will show your opinion the other way!
