Dars-e-Masnavi Maulana Jalalu-’d-din Muhammad Rumi (rh) was a great Muslim poet. The “Masnavi” is Rumi’s greatest poetic work, composed during the last years of his life. The Masnavi is divided into six books, and Rumi wrote prefaces for each book. It contains thousands of rhyming couplets (a type of poetry called, in Arabic, “mathnawî”) with stories, ethical teachings, and deeply spiritual teachings. It is deeply permeated with Qur’anic meanings and references, which is why it has been so famous and well-loved for so many centuries all across the Muslim and non Muslim world. In this program Pir Ala’uddin interprets the Mathnawi.
