Before answering your question ,

I should mention some points

1. Islamic history was written and recorded according to a Lunar Calendar which is 348 to 360 days. And it changes from one year to another , an average of 354 days.

2. That Islamic calendar is called Hijry ( = Immigration ) , because it began at the time when Prophet Mohamed peace be upon him , immigrated from Mecca to Yethreb ( the old name ) and the city changed its name to El-Medina ( literal translation is The City ) due to the new civilization that began to spread from that small city at that time after writing the new constitution of the new city combining Muslims , Jews and few atheists.

3. Since the immigration of Prophet Mohamed & his companions to the new city , Muslims got more strength , and the torture that was faced by Muslims in Mecca become to decline, although a lot of wars broke out between the old regime ruled by Mecca rulers and the new city , El-Madina.

4. The Solar Calendar is 365.25 days , which makes a difference of around 12 days between the solar and lunar calendar. In other words for every 33 Solar Years = 34 Lunar Years

5. Year 1 Hijry= the Immigration
Year 1437 Hijry = 2015/2016 AD

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Generally speaking :

The Islamic history began around 1437 Hijry Years ago with the Immigration ( 1394 Solar Years Ago = 621 AD)

or

The Islamic history began around 1449 Hijry Years ago with the beginning of the Revelation on Prophet Mohamed peace be upon him ( 1406 Solar Years ago = 609 AD)

* I hope it is a full answer(less)

This the most wonderful teaching collection of mystical life every created. Rumi has become the most widely read poet of the past century yet not many realize the true depths of his experience as a mystic. There are so many levels of all that exists in the Mathnawi. It is not just a book but a journey.
Erfaan Kheirandish
The content of this book is beyond one phase of of life of any reader. It's one of the most doable manual for life, though its fame may tell otherwise. It's a must read for anybody in any age.
Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore
Again, a refreshing actually translated version of Rumi's magisterial work, the Mathnawi, which is giving me the same frisson I got from reading the Victorian Nicholson translations in the 1970s when I was just a tad. This and Mojaddedi's versified version are what we need now... and it's nourishment supreme.

The masnavi is one of the greeatest books I have ever read. The translation is abridged and leaves out some of the very interesting stories. Nonetheless it is a good translation.

This ISBN (8174351582) goes with Reynold A. Nicholson's translation, 1925, published by Adam Publishers & Distributors, New Delhi. My copy of the 5 volume set is the 3rd edition, 2003 (first published by Adam Pub. in 1930). I've now read through the first volume, containing book 1 and 2 of the Mathnawi. The Nicholson translation in this edition is much more complete than the Winfield translations. Nicholson's commentary, with his introduction to it dated 1936, is in volume 5 of this collecti ...more

The one drawback of reading this edition on the Kindle is that the endnotes are not linked to the passages themselves. It would have been extremely helpful, as Williams' notes are very extensive. The book is beautiful, and has some wonderful stories, but also a lot of allusions that were lost on me as I have not read the Koran. I feel that, if I were more well versed in Islamic writings, I would have gotten more out of this. As it stands, I am glad that I read it and experienced it, if only on t ...more

The most influential Sufi poem ever written, the six books, Book Two is concerned with the challenges facing the seeker of Sufi enlightenment. In particular it focuses on the struggle against the self, and how to choose the right companions in order to progress along the mystical path. By interweaving amusing stories and profound homilies, Rumi instructs his readers in a style that still speaks directly to them.

Simply the best translation of Rumi's first Masnavi in English ever. Must for all poetry lovers. I have both the written book and the narration in audible.co.uk. I have listened to this book for the fourth time. It is book with both aspects of life, good and the bad. Only you cannot take any sides as both seem to swap sides much like the capricious life in itself. Definitely the listening experience tops the reading one, so download and listen away.

The most comprehensive literary piece on Sufi mysticism, the Whinfield translation is widely acknowledged as the best so far. A great "introductory course" before tackling scholarly articles on Sufism (i.e., "Fundamentals of Rumi's Thought" by Sefik Can, ISBN: 1932099794), and immensely enjoyable to read!

The celebrated Persian Sufi saint and poet, is one of the best known and most influential works of both Sufism and Persian literature;
It is considered by some to be the most important work of Muslim literature other than the Quran.
