Iqbal & Rumi: The Wisdom of East
Tribute to Allama Iqbal on his 74th death anniversary. A new blog for his spiritual mentor Maulana Jalal-ud-din Rumi (Rehmatullah Alaih).
The Masnavi is a poetic collection of rambling anecdotes and stories derived from the Quran, Hadith sources, and everyday tales. The Masnavi is a series of six books of poetry that amount to about 27,000 verses or 54,000 lines. The title Masnavi-Ma'navi means "Rhyming Couplets of Profound Spiritual Meaning."
It is advice of Allama Iqbal to make Rumi (R.A.) your companion in the path of seeking truth. Here is this advice from Books Javed Nama and Asrar-e-Khudi.
