External links content to be put into article prose?[edit]

On Rumi[edit]

@SheriffIsInTown: Hello, can we please discuss why you feel these are appropriate External Links? My understanding is that they should be used sparingly and only for specific purposes. I don't feel that these external links meet the criteria though the content should be incorporated into the article. Thanks, ツStacey (talk) 20:15, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
I don't see anything in Wikipedia:External links which prohibits these links to be included, these links are about the subject of the article and I don't think there is any reason to remove them. Why do you think that they should be removed? Sheriff | ☎ 911 | 21:42, 26 December 2015 (UTC)
@SheriffIsInTown: I hope this will ease your concerns that I am making drastic changes - please see bold text above to show my concerns about the links used. ツStacey (talk) 18:34, 27 December 2015 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: as you have not requested a specific change in the form "Please replace XXX with YYY" or "Please add ZZZ between PPP and QQQ".
More importantly, you have not cited reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to, or changed in, any article. - Arjayay (talk) 10:30, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Rumi's maternal descent[edit]

Rumi's paternal great grandmother's name was "Abu-bakr", and he was not a descent of the first Sunni Caliph, Abu Bakr, as recently an edit says. We read in the article's 38th reference/footnote ([bold section is mine]): "Franklin Lewis, Rumi Past and Present, East and West, Oneworld Publications, 2008 (revised edition). pp. 90–92: "Baha al-Din’s disciples also traced his family lineage to the first caliph, Abu Bakr (Sep 9; Af 7; JNO 457; Dow 213). This probably stems from willful confusion over his paternal great grandmother, who was the daughter of Abu Bakr of Sarakhs, a noted jurist (d. 1090). The most complete genealogy offered for family stretches back only six or seven generations and cannot reach to Abu Bakr, the companion and first caliph of the Prophet, who died two years after the Prophet, in C.E. 634 (FB 5–6 n.3)." – Hamid Hassani (talk) 18:57, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

The concept which I discussed above, has been corrected by Wario-Man via reverting. – Hamid Hassani (talk) 19:06, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

This is a known information with anybody acquainted with the history of Greater Iran. It was like saying Paris, France instead of Paris, Germany. But I will get you the source later on Alexis Ivanov (talk) 19:25, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
