Past often appropriated quotes from Rumi, it was this book along with the Mathanawi that truly introduced me to Rumi a few years ago. A spiritual mentor had taken me through part of the Mathnawi, plus the writings of Chittick, which in turn opened me to the teachings of Ibn Al-Arabi, and the foundation of my view of Islam comes from that background.

I remember this mentor instructing me in the Islamic view of the transcendent God, which is always bigger than we can imagine but at the same time c

According to Rumi, in order for us to be saved, we should first turn inside ourselves
and see our mistakes. we should cleanse the house of the heart from dirty thoughts.
We should keep it as clean as a house of worship. we should endure the calamities
that strike us. We should believe that everything comes from God and nothing
happens without His will, and for this reason we should not complain of diseases,
poverty, and sorrows. we should see the trouble that comes from the Beloved as a
remedy.Life is

Beautiful book. Not enough people know of the tradition of loving devotion in Islam--we all need to spend some time with Rumi from time to time to remind us of what is important.

Excellent, most beautiful. Not only does it give you a taste of Rumi's writings but also an understanding of his philosophy. Perfect book for a beginner in Sufism, Rumi & Islam

This is the best book on Rumi's poetry that actually shows you the meaning and application of what the great Sufi poet. If anyone of you are serious about understanding God and/or Sufism, I highly recommend picking this up. It can seem a bit dense at first glance, but it has answered so many questions I have had about God and why life is the way it is.

I will probably always be 'reading' this book.

We took a reading from Rumi to use for my daughter's Ceremony of Blessing and Thanksgiving at ChristChurch Cathedral, Oxford. It was so lovely, and so fitting.
