Few words about Mevlana Rumi:
He was a 13th-century Persian poet, Islamic jurist, theologian, and mystic.
Jalaluddin Rumi was born in Balkh, Mazar-i Sharif (present-day Afghanistan) on September 30, 1207CE, to a family of well-known mystics and scholars. His full name was Jalaluddin Mohammed but he became known as 'Rumi' - meaning from Rome - because his father Baha-uddin Balad later moved to Anatolia, once the base of the eastern Roman empire, in the wake of the Mongol invasion in 1219.
Maulana Rumi's first teacher was his father, but he was also greatly impressed by Shams Tabrizi, whose shrine is close to the Maulana's in Konya.
The Maulana travelled far and wide, including to Aleppo and Damascus, to study but Konya remained his permanent abode, and it was there that he died on December 17, 1273.
