The Masnavi -The Spiritual Couplets Of Rumi
The Masnavi is an extensive poem written in Persian by Jalal al-Din Muhammad Balkhi, the celebrated Persian Sufi saint and poet. It is one of the best known and most influential works of both Sufism and Persian literature. The Masnavi is a series of six books of poetry that together amount to around 25,000 verses or 50,000 lines. It is spiritual writing that teaches Sufis how to reach their goal of being in true love with God. The Masnavi is a poetic collection of rambling anecdotes and stories derived from the Quran, hadith sources, and everyday tales. Stories are told to illustrate a point and each moral is discussed in detail. It incorporates a variety of Islamic wisdom but primarily focuses on emphasizing inward personal Sufi interpretation.
