The Friendship Poems of Rumi

AUTHOR: Nader Khalili

Translated by renowned Rumi expert Nader Khalili, over 120 poems on friendship from the Persian mystic poet and Sufi master have been carefully collected and curated in this beautifully illustrated edition.

For more than eight centuries, Jalaluddin Muhammad Balkhi Rumi-commonly referred to simply as Rumi-has enchanted and enthralled readers from every faith and background with his universal themes of love, friendship, and spirituality, which he seamlessly wove into resplendent poetry. The verses perfectly express the universal importance of friendship in its many forms. A perfect gift to celebrate a special friendship, allow Rumi to exquisitely express the deeper meanings of being, and having, a friend in your life.

With intricately designed and richly colored covers that mirror the beauty of the words within, the Timeless Rumi series presents themed collections of poems from the great Sufi mystic Jalaluddin Muhammad Balkhi Rumi that serve as cherished tools for self-reflection.

'Find Yourself a Friend': find yourself a friend who is willing to tolerate you with patience / put to the test the essence of the best incense by putting it in fire / drink a cup of poison if handed to you by a friend when filled with love and grace / step into the fire like the chosen prophet the secret love will change hot flames to a garden covered with blossoms / roses and hyacinths and willow spinning and throwing you a true friend can hold you like God and his universe
