Who is Mevlana?

 

The original name of Mevlana, from whom the name of the programme is inspired, is Muhammed Celaleddin.  Mevlana was born in 1207 in Belh of Horasan distinct that is now in the border of Afghanistan. The name "Mevlana" was used by Sultan Veled, Şems-i Tebrizi and his lovers, and virtually is a universal symbol which identifies with him. Mevlana is also known as Rumi by western people.

As a sufi lived in the 13th century, but got beyond the ages with his works, Mevlana did not make any discrimination between people as indicated in his verse "Come, come whoever you are". In addition to his mercy, voluntary and unlimited love of humanity, he had endless tolerance, which impressed not only the world of Islam but also the whole humanity. He is accepted worldwide as an intellectual with his point of view to the people and life. Due to the 800th anniversary of Mevlana’s birth, UNESCO declared the year 2007 as Mevlana and Tolerance year.

Throughout his education, Mevlana visited the educational institutions of various cities of different countries of his time not only as a student but also a scholar. Mevlana attributed great importance to "change" in his philosophy throughout his life.
