A Commentary of the Mathnawi of Jalaluddin Rumi Vol. I (1969), Reynold Alleyne Nicholson
Nicholson's magnum opus was his work on Rumi's Masnavi, published in eight volumes between 1925 and 1940. He produced the first critical Persian edition of the Masnavi, the first full translation of it into English, and the first commentary on the entire work in English. This work has been highly influential in the field of Rumi studies worldwide.
The title Masnavi-ye-Ma'navi means "The Spiritual Couplets".

This must be the most authentic English translation available of Rumi's masterpiece. It is evident that the author has a vast knowledge of Islamic literature and Sufism. What amazed me the most was how the author kept the verses in rhyme, which must have been a strenuous task, while retaining the essence of the message: a difficult task when translating from Persian (or Arabic) to English. It's also interesting how Rumi sidesteps into other stories in the midst of each main narrative. There is a ...more

"A man knocked on his lover's door one day,
'Who is it?' he heard his beloved say.
He said, 'Its me.'She answered, 'Leave at once
There isn't room for such raw arrogance.'
Raw meat's cooked just by separation's flame-
What can cure hypocrisy's deep shame.
He wondered off in pain as his heart burnt,
In exile from the one he yearned,
Matured before then going back once more
And walking to and fro outside her door.
He tapped the door now suffering nerves inside,
Not to let slip a wrong word how he tried!

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 in this amazing new translation by the incomparable translator Jawid Mojaddedi, which follows much more closely the rhyming meter of the original. A major ...more

Conclusion:
Rūmī is the leading poet of Sufism (Islamic mysticism)
He composed the bulk of the much-loved Sufi lyrics in Persian.
The first one I read was beautiful.
It is a representation of the human condition in Middle Eastern literature:
"Listen to the reed, how it tells its tales;
Bemoaning its bitter exile, it wails:
Ever since I was torn from the reed beds,
My cries tear men’s and women’s hearts to shreds."

Many poems used animals (lion, hare, parrots) to

If you want to read Rumi's poems, the ACTUAL poems, read this book.

This book was suggested to me by a friend of a friend, who has a PhD in Jalaluddin Rumi. He said that this is the best translation of Rumi's poetry available. He also said that Coleman Bark's Rumi book, while gets credit for the spread of Rumi's name in the West, is not actually a translation. What he did with Rumi's poetry is pure paraphrasing and not at all a translation. And it makes sense.

Now listen to this reed-flute’s deep lament
About the heartache being apart has meant:
‘Since from the reed-bed they uprooted me
My song’s expressed each human’s agony,
A breast which separation’s split in two
Is what I seek, to share this pain with you:
When kept from their true origin, all yearn
For union on the day they can return.
Amongst the crowd, alone I mourn my fate,
With good and bad I’ve learnt to integrate,
That we were friends each one was satisfied
But none sought out my secrets from inside;

Jawid, a friend, up at Rutgers, has undertaken a major life project in turning these words into English poetry. I suggested he read Alexander Pope for couplets in English, but he always amazes me at his poetic dexterity in these volumes (now two of them from Oxford, and both necessary).

I gave up looking for a good translation of Rumi a few years ago. The Coleman Barks one is a disgrace - I don't know Persian but I do know that.

This translation was recommended to me via The New Yorker: http://www.newyorker.com/books/page-t...

If you want to read Rumi in English, read Mojaddedi's translation.
Amanda Spacaj-Gorham
The first Episode resonates with the love, mercy and wit that I have associated with Rumi since my first introduction to the great poet.

The second Episode, "The King and the Slave Girl" tells the story of, then justifies the murder of a goat herder on the basis of divine enlightenment being the motivation.

As much as I admire all the poetry of Rumi I have read before this story, this passage is hard to get past. Full disclosure, I also disregard most of Leviticus from the Old Testament. I

From the Introduction: "More than two centuries before the time of the eminent Sufi theosopher Ebn Arabi (d. 1240), Sufis began to describe their experience of annihilation in God and the realization that only God exists."

Unlike any Islamic literature I have read before- simply beautiful... This new translation presents Rumi’s mystical teachings in the form of simple rhyming couplets which are easy to understand. I would recommend this edition to everyone who wishes to read the Masnavi. I can’t wait to read books two, three, and four!

I had hoped I would have enjoyed this more. I cannot speak of the translation other than that it reads clearly and appears to fulfill what the translator wished for in his introduction to the translation--simple language, without excessive flourishes while still conveying each passage well. To me, Rumi covers the same topics repeatedly, using different parables to revisit a given lesson. These are namely submission to God, the sins of lust, greed and knowledge for its sake alone, to name but a ...more

The Masnavi, written by Mawlana Jalal Al-Din Muhammad Rumi at age 54 in 1258 until his death in 1273, is one of the most famous and best-loved Sufi texts ever written. Comprised of six books and over 25,000 verses, The Masnavi is a collection of poems and stories that teaches Sufis how to reach their Union with God. Rumi described the book as "the roots of the roots of the roots of the Faith." Filled to the brim with stories, anecdotes, lessons, and beautiful poetry, this version of The Masnavi ...more

"When God should wish to help He first decrees
That we must humbly beg Him on our knees-
How great it is to cry for just His sake
And for a heart, through love of Him, to bake!
Your tears will end with laughter - can't you tell?
How blest are those who know this secret well:
Wherever water's flowed some grass has grown,
Wherever tears are wept God's mercy's shown-
Be like the water-wheel, weep endlessly
So that your soul can grow its greenery!
Have mercy first if tears are what you seek,
To gain God's

This is by far the best Rumi translation out there. It has been translated by Mujaddedi into eloquent English and transports the reader into the wonderful, colourful and fantastic world of Rumi's imagination. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who's interested in studying the works of great Muslim saints.

Written by the founder of the whirling dervish order, this book contains poetry with a moral purpose. It mostly consists of long, narrative poems with moral lessons. It was a little overwhelming at first, but had a great beauty about it.

“فى يوم وفاتى عندما يسيرون بنعشى
لا تظن أنى متألم لفراق هذا العالم
فلا تبك من أجلى ولا تقل وا أسفاه وا أسفاه
فوقوعك فى مخيض الشيطان مدعاة للأسف
وعندما ترى نعشى لا تصرخ: الفراق
فوصالى هو فى هذا الزمان ولقائى
وحين أودع القبر لا تقل الوداع الوداع
فالقبر هو حجاب على مجمع الجنان.”
