A Must Read

“I am the slave of the Quran while I still have life,
I am dust on the path of Muhammad, The Chosen One,
If anyone interprets my words in any other way,
I deplore that person and I deplore his words.” — Rumi

"It was as if Maulana Rumi knew that his words would be misunderstood and mistranslated, especially by those unfamiliar with Islam. As can be seen from the translation of one of his quatrains shown above, no one should interpret Rumi's speech and poetry as having meanings that do not conform to the revelation and to the practice of Islam. "

A must read! - Ahmad
