Rumi a short background and the worldly sense…

Maulana Jalal-Uddin was born in 1207 in Balkh, Afghanistan and died in Konia, Turkey in 1273. Maulana as Rumi came about much later because the seat of the Eastern Roman Empire was in Turkey. The Roman Emperor Constantine (272-337) toward the end of his life had become a Christian. It was he who had convened the conference in Nicaea in 325 and where the Nice an Creed was agreed upon.

Here is a quote from his Masnavi. Khaliq

 

The worldly sense is a ladder to this world;

the religious sense is the ladder to Heaven.
