About the Author

For 25 years, Nader Khalili's specialty as an architect was skyscrapers. Then at thirty-eight, his turning point in life, he "... bought a motorcycle and went to the desert for five years in Iran to see what the solution was for sheltering the poor in the world and to learn from what already existed. There [he] got to know five personalities: earth, water, air, fire and Rumi, the 800 year old Persian mystic poet..." Rumi taught him the unity of these universal elements, forming his "Archemy" — architecture and alchemy. Water is fire, earth is water, and there is a unity in all elements.

His translations of Rumi are included in the Everyman's Library edition of Rumi Poems, published by Knopf, alongside Coleman Barks, who is the best known translator.

Rumi is one of our Persian Poets that will remain in history for centuries to come. Although Rumi wrote these poems over 7 centuries ago they still have the spark and rythms that are appreciated today. He was far beyond his years and this book expresses his beautiful, refreshing poems.

When you find yourself missing your husband, peak into the pages of this book, and these words of Rumi can conjure up your favorite memories. Like my father, Allah (subhana wa ta Allah) has blessed this man to say so much with so few words, and we are grateful he has shared them with us.

In the moments of my solitude Molana has been the best companion to me.When you know him you will appriciate love.You will also recognize your spirituality,and its power within you.Then there will come a time or a stage in your life that you won't need or depend on anything except Him ,the greatest power of all.Reading Rumi is like being in a forest, you have to find your own path.Path of love,path of peace and tranquility.I give it five star.Manijeh.
