MEVLânâ celâleddin-i rumi

Amongst the sufi ways, there is one who is recognized globally for its philosophy and prayers, the Mevlevi.

Mevlânâ was not the founder of the Mevlevi tariqa but its essence, its soul and writtings.

—  Kadri Dede, Istanbul, Turkey

Mevlânâ emigrated to Ottoman Empire when he was young with his family. He eventually settled down in Konya. He had influence on Seljuq Sultans to whom he gave religious and scientific advices.
