Question: Al Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah, I would like to know whether Mowlana Jalaluddin Rumi was a deviant Sufi or a pious scholar? Is his famous book Masnawi al Maanawi a good book to read? Wassalam
All Praise is for Allah.
Jalaluddin Rumi (died 672H) was one of the famous Sufis who followed the path of Muhiuddin Ibn Arabi - the Sufi - in his belief of Wahdat Al-Wujood (i.e. Allah and His creation are one being)
