THE MYSTERY OF ETERNALİTY OF MOWLANA ( His Relations With Shams )
After over seven centuries, Mowlana is still alive as one of the most famous Sufis and as a great leaders for eternal peace, friendship and happiness. What is the secret that in spite of all changes and progress in the ways of life and thinking, in science and technology and in the world of today, his many centuries old ideas and thoughts are still valid and shining like the polar star?
Mowlana was a true sufi, leader of “erfan” (gnosticism ) which started in the late second century A.H. after the sanctimonious asceticism. (Dr. Ashrafzadeh )
” erfan ” which orbits around ” love” and specially love of God, is one of the greatest sentimental and sensational feelings donated to man by God . Ironically, here God is all human beings and all other creatures. Erfan is the only remedy for footless, political, regional, racial, religious and cultural differences of all human beings which are destroying the whole world.(Toossi, 1999).
The centre of erfan is love of God which reflects over all God’s creatures.
