Journey to the Masnavi - Ustadh Feraidoon Mojadedi
The Masnavi of Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi is indeed a vast and rich ocean. Within this ocean, however, are many islands made specifically for the traveler so that he may rest and enjoy the beautiful scenery and never tire or drown in its depth. Each island is different from another, some have amazing fruits and others have sweet spring waters; some have beautiful gardens of roses and others have breathtaking and lush trees. These islands are the stories in the Masnavi, and each story has a message of its own to help us understand the subtleties of our lives and to solve issues that we deal with every day regardless of who we are and where we live.
In this course titled "Journey Through the Masnavi" we will go through some of these stories in a linear timeline that coincides with the story of mankind, starting with the creation of Adam (peace be upon him) and ending with death.
