eBook (PDF), 342 Pages

The work contains many hundreds of anecdotes, related to Eflākī by trustworthy reporters, whose names are generally given, and a few for which he vouches himself as an eyewitness. Every anecdote is the account of a miracle wrought by the living or the dead; or is the narrative of some strange or striking event. It is, in fact, a species of the Acts of the Apostles of the Mevlevi dervish fathers, and is a rare specimen of what fervid religious enthusiasm can invent or exaggerate, pious credulity can believe, and confiding ignorance accept. In these days of Christian "Spiritualism," let not the reader be over-shocked at learning that Muslim "Saints," lovers of their Creator, and beloved by Him in return, hold themselves and are held by their dervish brethren to be the successors and spiritual inheritors of the prophets, from Adam to Muhammed.

    The title does not match the description. Rumi's Mesnevi is 26,000 rhymed couplets of teaching stories and spiritual instruction. The description is of the writings of Aflaki, a totally different work written by a disciple of Rumi's grandson, about Rumi. I suggest that you look elsewhere for translations of Rumi poetry, or modern scholarship about Rumi.
