Sheik Tirmidhi once said, “Saiyid Burhan alDin expounds truths so well because he has studied the books, secret writings and treatises of the masters.”

A Sufi answered, “But you study them as well. Why don’t you speak like he does?”

Tirmidhi replied, “Well, Burhan al-Din has also made great spiritual efforts and accomplishments.”

The Sufi said, “Why didn’t you say that in the first place? You only know how to repeat what you have read; that is the difference. But we are now speaking of something greater than books—you too can speak of that!”

— Rumi / Jalāluddīn Muhammad Rūmī

Few care about the other world at all.

They have fixed their hearts upon this world entirely.

Some seek these teachings to eat the bread of God, some only to inspect the bread.

Still this is a good thing. God has sealed the eyes of some people so they can cultivate this present world. If no one were blind to the other world, this world would be empty. It is this blindness that gives rise to culture and progress.

So the cause and reason for civilization is blindness, and the cause of devastation is sight.

Those who run for the sake of the other World, they are truly seated. If they are seated for the sake of the present world, they are running.

— Rumi / Jalāluddīn Muhammad Rūmī

Within people there is a longing and a desire such that, even if a hundred thousand worlds were theirs to own, still they would find no rest or comfort. They try every trade and craft, studying astronomy, medicine and every other subject, but they reach no completion, for they have not found their true desire.

All these pleasures and pursuits are like a ladder. The rungs of a ladder are not a place to make one’s home; they are for passing by. Fortunate are those who learn this. The long road becomes short for them, and they do not waste their lives upon the steps.

— Rumi / Jalāluddīn Muhammad Rūmī

God’s treasuries are many, and God’s sciences are many.

His pens are many, and that each one is loftier than the next.

God revealed this present world so that you could accept the other stages that lie ahead. He did not reveal it so that you would say, “This is all there is.” The masters of crafts demonstrate their abilities and arts so their apprentices will find faith in them, and will believe in the other arts they have not yet demonstrated.

— Rumi / Jalāluddīn Muhammad Rūmī

It is stated that after Mohammed (pbuh) and the Prophets (pbut) revelation will not be sent down upon anyone else, but this is not true. This is why Mohammed (pbuh) said, “The believer sees with the Light of God.” When someone sees with God’s Light, they see all things, the first and last, the visible and invisible, for how can anything be hidden from God’s Light? If anything is hidden, then that is not God’s Light. Therefore this is revelation, whether they call it revelation or not. ____ Rumi / Jalāluddīn Muhammad Rūmī

Knowingness is the perfect Sheikh. Inspired and true thoughts are His disciples ranked according God’s closeness to them. As each thought expands it comes nearer to knowingness and farther from doubt.

Errant and doubtful thoughts are the outcast disciples of the Sheikh of Knowingness. Every day they wander further from the truth, and fall deeper into darkness.

— Rumi / Jalāluddīn Muhammad Rūmī
