Rumi Early Life Overview

Like Rumi, his father, Baha ud-Din Walad, was also a theologian and a Sufi mystic. However, if we go by the legends, Rumi’s father was rejected by most of the modern scholars of that time. There is no significant mention of Rumi’s mother in the pages of History. The name of his mother was Momina Khatun. For many generations, the sole profession of the Rumi family was preaching Islamic Hanafi rite. After the invasion of Mongols in between 1215 and 1220, the whole Rumi family moved to westwards and away from war prone zone.

It is said that in the Iranian city of Nishapur, Rumi met with one of the most famous Persian poets of that time, Attar. The Attar immediately recognized the due spiritual awakening of Rumi and gave him a book about the entanglement of soul in the materialistic world. In 1225, Rumi married a beautiful girl named Gowhar Khatun and gave birth to two beautiful sons. After his first wife death, Rumi married again and gave birth to another son and a daughter.

The Lifetime Work of Rumi

Scholars have divided the Rumi’s lifetime work into various categories. The poetic work is divided into two categories: quatrains and odes. The prose work is divided into The letters, the Discourses, and the seven Sermons.

Unquestionably, the most famous work of Rumi is Maṭnawīye Ma’nawī. It is divided into six volumes that covers a great chunk of Persian traditions and literature. His other work of paramount importance is Diwan-e-Kabir. Apart from containing 35000 Persian couplets and 2000 Persian quatrains, it also comprises 90 Ghazals and 19 quatrains in Arabic. Rumi’s major prose works are Fihi Ma Fihi, Makatib, and Majāles-e Sab’a.

Makatib is the selection of all the letters written by Rumi to his followers, friends, family members, and other influential personalities. Fihi Ma Fihi is all about 71 lectures that Rumi gave to his followers and common masses on numerous occasions.
