Your soul each moment struggles hard with death -
Think of your faith as though it's your last breath.
Your life is like a purse, and night and day
Are counters of gold coins you've put away'

Rumi is the greatest mystic poet to have written in Persian, and the Masnavi is his masterpiece. Divided into six books and consisting of some 26,000 verses, the poem was designed to

ای ضیاء الحق حسام الدین بیار، این سوم دفتر که سنت شد سه بار
اشاره به سنت رسول که هر کس به حضرتش سلام میکرد سه بار جواب سلام می شنید
Irving Karchmar
The Greatest poem of any language, over 14,000 lines filled with the Sufi love of God, faith, beauty, teaching stories, and love and love and love. Called the Persian Koran, his only rivals for fame and complexity are Homer and Dante, with Shakespeare thrown in for the English language. I loved it, and have been re-reading it lately. The six volumes of the Mathnawi are Nicholson's greatest achievement in translation also, one for which he will be most remembered.

The Mathnawi, Just wonderful :o).
And great work by Jawid Mojaddedi, I'm liking the rhyming couplets very much. And now I eagerly wait for book four.

Dalam buku ketiga ini, Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi mengingatkan kita tentang hakikat ilmu sebenar yang merentasi akal rasional dan hawa nafsu yang menjadi titipan daripada Allah kepada auliya-Nya - memperjelaskan kesalahan dan kesilapan ahli zahir yang terperangkap dalam keangkuhan pengetahuan sehingga menyangka apa yang mereka miliki sudah cukup untuk mencapai realiti al-Haq dan menempelak kebenaran pada ilmu yang dimiliki oleh kekasih Allah.
