The version of Rumi that has become known as “the best-selling poet in North America” is not a true one.

  • This newly translated anthology of Rumi’s poetry, with accompanying commentaries, aims to uncover the true meaning held within his cherished verse.
  • The time has come to reveal more of Rumi—to challenge the seriously inaccurate portrayal of a new age guru who seemingly embraced, far ahead of his time, some of the heresies and vices most disliked in traditional Islam.
  • This brilliant work, through careful selections from his work and accompanying commentaries, will bring readers closer to his poetry’s true, traditional meaning and the man himself, and his position as a great Islamic scholar, teacher, and saint. Perhaps Rumi himself said it best:

“Everyone has, in their view, become my close friend but�they have not sought out the secrets within me.”

Dr. Muhammad Isa Waleyis Lead Curator for Persian and Turkish Collections at the British Library, London. His research focuses on the palaeography, codicology, illumination, and cataloging of Islamic manuscripts; and the classical verse and prose literature of Islamic spirituality. The subject of his PhD was Jalal al-Din Rumi’s work and he is an editor for theMawlana Rumi Review, an annual journal.
