Description: There has been an increasing tendency among Western scholars and, even more, lovers and admirers of Mawlana to forget the deeply Islamic background of his poetry. Modern people tried to select from often very vague secondhand translations only those verses that speak of love and ecstasy and whirling dance. The role that the Prophet of Islam plays in Mawlana’s poetry is hardly mentioned. Anyone who understands the introductory musical piece at the beginning of the Mevlevi ceremony will know how deep the poet’s love for the Prophet Muhammad was. (from the foreword by Annemarie Schimmel). This book draws out Rumi’s distinctive and creative insights into Islamic religious culture by focusing on his treatment of prophets as instruments in God’s communication with mankind. Stories and images of the prophets provide this mystic and poet with a way of communicating his rich awareness of the reality of the Divine message.
