Rumi Commemoration Day in Iran


Iran celebrates Rumi Commemoration Day every December 30 (Mehr 8) to pay tribute to the prominent Iranian poet and remember his outstanding works.

Mowlana Jaleleddin Rumi was a 13th-century Iranian poet who composed poems in Persian. His poems have been widely translated from Persian into many of the world"s languages. He has been hailed by Western scholars as the greatest mystical poet of all time.

He is the author of the famous Mathnawi, a poem of 25,700 couplets, considered his greatest work that was composed in his later years, containing a great number of stories and anecdotes of diverse styles. His second best known work is the Diwan-i Shams-i Tabriz, totaling some 40,000 couplets, which is a collection of poems describing the mystical states and expounding various points of Sufi doctrine. The Diwan is a collection of ecstatic utterances, with most of the ghazals (or "lyric poems of love") composed spontaneously by Mawlana during the sama (whirling meditation), a practice still performed today by the Sufis of the Mevlevi order.
