About this item

This newly translated anthology of Rumi’s poetry, with accompanying commentaries, aims to uncover the true meaning held within his cherished verse.

The version of Rumi that has become known as ‘the best-selling poet in North America’ is not a true one.

The time has come to reveal more of Rumi. To challenge the seriously inaccurate portrayal of a new age guru who seemingly embraced, far ahead of his time, some of the heresies and vices most disliked in traditional Islam.

This brilliant work, through careful selections from his work and accompanying commentaries, will bring readers closer to his poetry’s true, traditional meaning and the man himself, and his position as a great Islamic scholar, teacher and saint.

‘Everyone has, in their view, become my close friend
but they have not sought out the secrets within me.’

— Rumi
