Ethnicity: Afghan[edit]

Rumi was born in Afghanistan, hence it should be corrected here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Masoudsafi (talkcontribs) 04:17, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

Not done Because his ethnicity/background is correct. We don't use modern demonyms for ancient/medieval people, e.g. Afghan or Iranian. Plus, did you check cited sources? He may was born in Tajikistan. --Wario-Man (talk) 06:42, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
  • There wasn't "Afghanistan" at that time and Rumi didn't identify himself as an "Afghan" poet, the same way Herodotus (who was born in modern-day Turky) wasn't a Turkish historian. -- Kouhi (talk) 14:12, 23 October 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 21 October 2016[edit]

His poetry has influenced Persian literature, but also Turkish, Ottoman Turkish, Azerbaijani, as well as the literature of some other Turkic, Iranian, and Indo-Aryan languages including Chagatai, Pashto, and Bengali. Kindly remove chagatai from the group aforementioned as it is not an indo-aryan or even iranian language but belongs to turkic languages,sort of ösbek. Otherwise an excellent and well wrought piece.

Name should be changed from Rumi to Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, Rumi is not his name rather it is the name of where he lived 79.75.44.118 (talk) 14:25, 1 November 2016 (UTC)

Resting place[edit]

How can his resting place be the Sultanate of Rum while is tomb is located in what we call now Turkey? someone explain please Redman19 (talk) 14:11, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

It's common on articles about pre-modern people but we usually clarify birth/death place in the "Life" section, e.g. adding modern/current name of region or country. --Wario-Man (talk) 23:33, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

Mevlevi order appears much later after his death[edit]

I think the sources quoted for the assertion that the Mevlevi order was founded right after his death in 1273 are not reliable. I have found no real evidence that the Mevlevi cult appeared earlier than the 1300s. Except that is, according to their own assertions--Wool Bridge (talk) 12:07, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Ethnicity: Turk[edit]

Some sources claim Rumi to be a Turk. It should've been noted, since Rumi's ethnicity is a matter of discussion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 176.40.138.1 (talk) 19:29, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

Not really. Read the top of this page and previous discussions (archives):
A consensus has been reached on this talkpage that Rumi has a Persian heritage. This has been based solely on reliable sources indicating the linkage of the historical situation of his birthplace and native language with Persian culture. Before reopening the debate on his ethnicity editors are requested to go through wikipedia's policies outlined at WP:V, WP:weight, WP:RS as well as read the archives where many of the same polemics are repeated. Specifically, modern authoritative biographies of Rumi such as that of Prof. Franklin Lewis, or google books/scholars for the most common frequent terms such as "Persian poet Rumi" and "Persian mystic Rumi". --Wario-Man (talk) 05:04, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
