Sorry, we're unable to load this blog.
Welcome to my Mevlana blog! The purpose of this is twofold: one is to help me, as a grad student, distill the abundance of information I'm getting from Dr. Ibrahim Farajaje's doctoral-level course on Jala al-Din Mevlana Rumi's work, especially the Masnawi. The other purpose is to see how well I can absorb this complex information, synthesize it and cough it back up accessibly. With the terror-instilling "radicalization of Islam" rhetorc that's currently being spewed all over us, this information will, I hope, help readers to come to new and deeper understandings of Islam. Please feel free to share this blog widely and at will. Questions? Stuff you'd like to know? Comments? Just drop me an email. Thanks for visiting!
