Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī

Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī (Persian: جلال‌الدین محمد بلخى), also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī (جلال‌الدین محمد رومی), and more popularly in the English-speaking world simply as Rumi (30 September 1207 – 17 December 1273), was a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic.
Rumi's works are written in Persian and his Mathnawi remains one of the purest literary glories of Persia, and one of the crowning glories of the Persian language.
Rumi was not just a poet, but also an influential Sufi figure in his day.
As a prominent Sufi, Rumi strongly opposed to worshiping the
mind and senses in determining the truth.

Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, also known simply as Rumi, was a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic. He is considered one of the greatest poets in the Persian language and has had a significant influence on literature and spirituality in the Islamic world and beyond.

Rumi was born in present-day Afghanistan in 1207, and later moved to what is now Turkey. He was a highly educated man, studying theology, law, and the sciences. However, it was his encounters with the Sufi mystic Shams-i Tabrizi that had the greatest impact on his life and work. Rumi's poetry is filled with mystical and spiritual themes, and he is known for his use of vivid imagery and emotion to convey his ideas.

Rumi's most famous work is the "Masnavi," a six-volume poem that is considered one of the greatest works of Sufi literature. It is a spiritual and philosophical masterpiece that explores themes such as love, faith, and the search for God. Rumi's poetry has been translated into many languages and continues to be widely read and admired around the world. He is also the subject of the popular 13th century Persian epic poem, the "Shahnameh," by the Persian poet Ferdowsi.
