Iannoone (talk) 16:18, 12 April 2014 (UTC) Under 5. Philosophical Outlook, there is a poem quoted, but it is unclear who the author is. It doesn't look like Rumi. Is it by Al Farabi or Ibn Sina, just mentioned before the poem? Clarification will be appreciated.

Rumi expert, Maryam Mafi, has published numerous translations but has not been cited or referenced in any part of the Wikipedia article on Rumi. Can this be corrected? Her website, listing her publications, is

Georgian Queen Gürcü Hatun was a patron and a close friend of Rumi. She was the one who sponsored the construction of his tomb in Konya.[43] The 13th century Mevlâna Mausoleum, with its mosque, dance hall, dervish living quarters, school and tombs of some leaders of the Mevlevi Order, continues to this day to draw pilgrims from all parts of the Muslim and non-Muslim world. Jalal al-Din who is also known as Rumi, was a philosopher and mystic of Islam. His doctrine advocates unlimited tolerance, positive reasoning, goodness, charity and awareness through love. To him and to his disciples all religions are more or less truth. Looking with the same eye on Muslim, Jew and Christian alike, his peaceful and tolerant teaching has appealed to people of all sects and creeds. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:35, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
