|BIRTHDAY OF OUR BELOVED RUMI
Mawlana Jalal-ad-Din Muhammad Rumi was born on

Listen to the song of the reed,
“Ever since I was taken from my reed bed
I seek out those whose hearts are torn by separation
Whoever is taken away from his homeland
In every gathering, among those who are happy or sad,
Everyone hears according to his own understanding,
My secret is found in my lament
The sound of the reed comes from fire, not wind
It is the fire of love that brings music to the reed.
The song of the reed soothes the pain of lost love.
Can there be a poison so bitter or a sugar so sweet
To hear the song of the reed
