    In December 1273, when Rumi fell ill, he predicted his own death and composed a 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. ''

    i was introduced to sufism through rumi. i got turned on to him by my brother who passed on the poem given the title the many wines in coleman barks' the essential rumi.

    then i was introduced to hafiz...

    rumi is among my three current favorite poets. there would be too much to say in praise of his poetry, and it's better, of course, to actually read it. one may need, however, to have some taste of the mystical experience to appreciate it. as paul says in 1 corinthians, only the spirit (of God) searches and understands the spirit.

    t doesn't matter where from Rumi was..what matteres is he has given us the largest of the treasures of Sufi Poetry ever produced.
    His poetry classified as Sufi Poetry is in fact the basic truth of this Universe.

    A great poet stood for human kind and mysticism was his way of writing.

    His poems are not only beautiful but inspirational. He makes me proud to be an Afghan. [3

Best Poem of Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

A Moment Of Happiness

A moment of happiness,
you and I sitting on the verandah,
apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.
We feel the flowing water of life here,
you and I, with the garden's beauty
and the birds singing.
The stars will be watching us,
and we will show them
what it is to be a thin crescent moon.
You and I unselfed, will be together,
indifferent to idle speculation, you and I.
The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar
as we laugh together, you and I.
In one form upon this earth,
and in another form in a timeless sweet land.

Read the full of A Moment Of Happiness

Rise, Lovers

Rise, lovers, that we may go towards heaven; we have seen this world, so let us go to that world.
No, no, for thought these two gardens are beautiful and fair, let us pass beyond these two, and go to that Gardener.
Let us go prostrating to the sea like a torrent, then let us go foaming upon the face of the sea.
Let us journey from this street of mourning to the wedding feast, let us go from this saffron face to the face of the Judas tree blossom.
Trembling like a leaf and twig from fear
