Jalaluddin Rumi was a 13th century Persian scholar, poet, and Sufi mystic who is regarded as one of the greatest spiritual teachers of his time.
His best writings are found in the Masnavi, a poetic compendium of supreme wisdom and spiritual depth. The Masnavi was held as one of the finest works of literature ever seen and is today emblematic of the Islamic Golden Age.
