Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi Poems

A Moment Of Happiness

A moment of happiness,
you and I sitting on the verandah,
apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.

Be With Those Who Help Your Being

Be with those who help your being.
Don't sit with indifferent people, whose breath
comes cold out of their mouths.


Birdsong brings relief
to my longing
I'm just as ecstatic as they are,
but with nothing to say!

Because I Cannot Sleep

Because I cannot sleep
I make music at night.
I am troubled by the one

A Stone I Died

A stone I died and rose again a plant;
A plant I died and rose an animal;
I died an animal and was born a man.

In December 1273, when Rumi fell ill, he predicted his own death and composed a ghazal which begins with the verse: '' How doest thou know what sort of king I have within me as companion? Do not cast thy glance upon my golden face, for I have iron legs. ''

Mevlana was born on 30 September 1207 in Balkh in present day Afghanistan. He died on 17 December 1273 in Konya in present day Turkey. He was laid to rest beside his father and over his remains a splendid shrine was erected. The 13th century Mevlana Mausoleum with its mosque, dance hall, dervish living quarters, school and tombs of some leaders of the Mevlevi Order continues to this day to draw pilgrims from all parts of the Muslim and non-Muslim world. to get more information about Mewlana please 'http: //'

Please help me to find the Rumi poem where he says something like: " Just because the blanket has a run/slipped thread (or a tear) I would not throw it away..." Thank you.
