Love has nothing to do with the five senses : By Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi


Love has nothing to do with the five senses

“the five senses and the six directions:
its goal is only to experience
the attraction exerted by the Beloved.
Afterwards, perhaps, permission
will come from God:
the secrets that ought to be told will be told
with an eloquence nearer to the understanding
of these subtle confusing allusions.
The secret is partner with none
but the knower of the secret:
in the skeptic’s ear
the secret is no secret at all.”

By : Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

You definitely know who he is. Is one of the poets of Islam : Persia’s best known lyrical poet and mystic, was born on September 30, 1207 in Balkh (Afghanistan). His father Baha’ Walad was descended from the first caliph Abu Bakr and was influenced by the ideas of Ahmad Ghazali, brother of the famous philosopher. Baha’ Walad’s sermons were published and still exist as Divine Sciences (Ma’arif).

Eighteen years later his family fled from invading Mongols, settling for a time in Laranda, Central Anatolia (present-day Karaman, Turkey) where Jalaluddin married Jawhar Khatun. His father, Baha’uddin Valad, the “Sultan of the Learned,” moved the family to Konya (modern Turkey) in 1228 and founded a school of Islamic philosophy and theology.
