Rumi and Islam - Selections from His Stories, Poems and Discourses
by Jelaluddin Rumi
Translated and Annotated by Ibrahim Gamard
Selections of Rumi's works focusing on his Sufi discipleship.
- 206 pages, US paperback
So many of the recent collections of Rumi have focused on his sense of universal love. This excellent collection takes a different perspective. Here, Rumi is seen as the Sufi disciple whose life and works express deep reverence towards the Prophet Muhammad. Not to say that love is absent. Mr. Gamard, by probing Rumi's spiritual teachings verse by verse, provides insight into the mystical side of the Qur'an and Islam, a religion that holds a deep love of God at its core.
