Anti-power sentiment based on Rumi's view in “Masnavi Ma’navi”

Sayyed. Mojtaba Hosseini, Hatam Soleimani


Rumi grew up in one of the most perilous days of the history of this country. He, as a protesters and intelligent critic of the seventh century, has been attacked on many various social issues of his time.

His critical poems like a mirror reveals a society image of that time facing the reality of his life and his cries of protest express his disgust from the chaos in the society. He has criticized the authorities and rulers who just seek power and attributed it to anti-human temperament such as tyranny and failure of cogitative privacy.


Rumi, power, power-seeking, tyranny.
