The Triumphal Sun: A Study of the Works of Jalāloddin Rumi

4.32  ·  Rating details ·  77 ratings  ·  11 reviews
This is a book on Rumi's life, his poetry, his thought, and his influence. Rumi's work forms one of the pillars of the Sufi orders, particularly the Mevlevi order, better known in the West as the Whirling Dervishes. In this book Rumi emerges not only as a spiritual master, but also as a fully human being grounded firmly in the Koran and in classical Islamic mysticism.

قارئا من فيض ذا الشيخ العظيم كتبا تضمر أسرار العلوم
قلبه من شعلة الوجد استعر وأنا في نفس منه شرر
قد رمى الشمع فراشي باللهب وغزت جامى الحميا فالتهب
صيّر الرومي طيني جوهرا من غباري شاد كونا آخرا
محمد إقبال

الكتاب من تأليف البروفيسورة الألمانية آنا ماري شيمل التي لها عدد كبير من الدراسات حول الإسلام و التصوّف بالألمانية و الإنجليزية و سبق أن قرأت كتابها ( الأبعاد الصوفية في الإسلام ) .. قد ذكرت الكاتبة أنها إهتمت بأعمال الرومي على إمتداد 40 سنة كاملة و قد دفعها حب الرومي إلى الإ

لن أبدأ مراجعة لمحيط الحب هذا إلا بحكاية أنين الناي :

أنين الناي نار لا هواء..
أنصت إلى الناي يحكي حكايته..
ومن ألم الفراق يبث شكايته:
مذ قطعت من الغاب، والرجال والنساء لأنيني يبكون
أريد صدراً مِزَقاً مِزَقاً برَّحه الفراق
لأبوح له بألم الاشتياق..
فكل من قطع عن أصله
دائماً يحن إلى زمان وصله..
وهكذا غدوت مطرباً في المحافل
أشدو للسعداء، وأنوح للبائسين
وكلٌ يظن أنني له رفيق
ولكن أياً منهم (السعداء والبائسين) لم يدرك حقيقة ما أنا فيه!!
لم يكن سري بعيداً عن نواحي، ولكن
أين هي الأذن الواعية، والعين المبصرة؟!!

As I read this book amongst several other books on Islamic mysticism, I reflect on how much I have and there are others who have nothing. There are Muslims, no less than one billion Muslims, who acknowledge God as a Creator and a Judge but also inspires them to fear and terror. In Islam, God has 99 attributes of his Divine Name and one of them is al-mutakabir المتكبر i.e. the Arrogant One, and a Muslim is to approach him as a slave عبد full of fear and insecurity in his presence.

Sangat baik. Sangat menarik. Sangat baik utk pembaca sastera Islam, puisi berunsur Islam, kesufian dan ilmu kemanusiaan. Sebenarnya kebanyakan buku Prof. Schimmel sangat menarik dan baik, perlu dibaca. It saja.😁

I have not read this book in its entirety, yet I rated it five for its excellent section on Rumi's theology.

If you have been reading a lot of philosophy books and find yourself frustrated at the transiency of truth (small t) approached from strictly rational perspective (Foucault give up on philosophy and history and invented genealogy, didn't he?), reading Rumi's Theology chapter in this book may grant you relief: Truth can only be found through Divine Revelation.

Excellent. Wealth of backgroubd info as well
as in depth analyis of images, sources, theology, impact
and more. Her style is elegant but not flowery ,
facile- conveys a sense of depth and understanding
of a rich material.

Excellent. Th section on Hindus and views of Hindus establishes firmly how racist and hateful this so-called sufi 'saint' was, and should demonstrate once and for all the fraudulent idea that sufism is somehow less brutal than islam in general is.

ال ٣٠٠ صفحة الأخيرة تستحق القراءة . والعكس صحيح

لم يعجبني ترجمة الشعر لانه فقد قيمته وسوف تلاحظ ذلك وهذا مما ضعف الكتاب

وبشكل عام سيرة مولانا جلال الدين هي من أعطت الكتاب الأهمية فقطى

“تغنى مولانا جلال الدين الرومي بهذه الأشعار، حينما وصله خبر العثور على شمس الدين التبريزي بدمشق

نحن مفتونون وهائمون ومأخوذون بدمشق
قدمنا أرواحنا وربطنا قلوبنا بحب دمشق”
