The Representation of Qur'an in the Sufi Poetry of Jalaluddin Rumi

Enas Fawzy Abdel Aziz

Abstract

This research examines how Qur'an affects and is represented in the poetry of Jalaluddin Muhammad Rumi; one of the best-selling and influential Muslim poets in the West. Although he is a Persian poet of the 13th century, his spiritual legacy is present and greatly appreciated for the past seven centuries. His poems are widely known and are translated into many different languages all over the world. This research generally examines his Sufi poems and how they succeed to give a commentary on the deeper meaning of Qur'an. In this sense, the research is consisted of an introduction, three parts and a conclusion.

The introduction is mainly about the life and works of the Muslim poet Jalaluddin Muhammad Rumi. The first part concentrates on how some of the Qur'anic verses or quotes are represented in his poems to the Western readers. Rumi is one of the most recognizable Muslim poets in the West, and his way of representing Qura'n reflects the Western conception about Islam. The second part of the research concentrates on the analysis of one of the greatest works of Rumi which is "Mathnawiye Ma'nawi" or (Spiritual Couplets). This poem is regarded by some Sufis as the Persian-language Qur'an. The poem is mainly based on the teachings of Qur'an and Hadith. The third and final part of the research examines Rumi's effect as a Muslim poet on the writings of modern American poets like Walt Whitman, Washington Irving, Daniel Abdel-Hayy Moore, Michael Wolfe. Then, the third part of the research is followed by a conclusion which sums up the most important points and findings of the research.
