Konya (Turkey) in Love of Rumi

My long-lasting dream materialized when I visited Konya (Turkey) in the principal seven day stretch of April 2017, to offer my appreciation to the thirteenth century extraordinary Sufi holy person, a dervish, scholar, profound pioneer and a minister of Divine love, Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi. Rumi don’t have a place with a specific religion or group. His useful tidbits and his message of affection is for all humankind, regardless of their strict convictions.

The antiquated city of Konya is the second most visited city of Turkey after Istanbul. Aside from its memorable importance, Konya has turned into a journey city for Muslims as well as for individuals of different religions who look for otherworldly direction from Rumi’s verse and treat Rumi as their profound chief. Rumi went through the greater part of his time on earth in Konya and was covered there. In 1927, his religious community was changed over into a gallery named as Mevlana Meuseze or the Maulana Museum. Maulana is a strict title for regard. In the west Maulana is known as Rumi and the historical center named after him as Rumi Museum.

Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi was brought into the world in Balkh (presently Afghanistan) in 1207 and came to Konya alongwith his folks when he was just 12 years of age. Rumi turned into an extraordinary strict researcher of his time and began showing Koran and Islamic Sharia to his understudies. Subsequent to meeting with Shams Tabriz at 37 years old his entire life changed. He turned into a spinning dervish and followed the strides of his Murshed Shams.

Farces Tabriz made Rumi indescribably pleased with Divine otherworldly edification and showed him the information what he was unable to gain from the books. After that Rumi began composing verse. He composed 70,000 sections in a time of 25 years. Rumi’s verse, written in the Persian language, has been deciphered in every one of the noticeable dialects of the world, and subsequently Rumi has turned into the most popular, most regarded and the most perused writer of the world.

Rumi Museum is opened day to day from 10.00 am to 4.30 pm and the confirmation is free. Prior to entering the Rumi’s sanctuary, everybody is expected to wear ragged plastic covers on shoes as regard for the heavenly spot. In the primary room there are numerous burial places of Rumi’s family and supporters. Rumi’s burial chamber is covered with a huge thick fabric weaved in gold with a major green turban put on it. Other than his burial place there is the burial place of Rumi’s dad, Maulana Bahauddin Valed.

In the following room, set in the glass cases are the transcribed books of Rumi’s verse written in Persian language, written by hand Holy Quran in different periods, clothing having a place with Rumi and his child Sultan Veled, covers having a place with Rumi and his Murshed Shams Tebriz, and so on. The following is the request space for people. The principal sanctum was worked by Seljuk sovereigns while the rooms before the primary holy place were included the hours of Ottoman Sultans and turned into a piece of the Rumi Museum.

Rumi left this world on 17 December 1273. This day is recalled consistently as his leaving this world and “wedding with God”. Consistently, on 17 December, explorers from everywhere the world come to Konya to offer their appreciation to the thirteenth century incredible writer and Sufi holy person. They partake in strict functions and witness the spinning dervishes performing live before the travelers.
