مولانا جلال الدین رومی کے تعلیمی افکار کی عصری معنویت
The Modern Spirituality of the Educational Thoughts of Maulana Jalal-ud-Din Rumi
The role played by Islamic scholars from the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him) to the present day in guiding them to the right path of knowledge and making it a constructive and useful source of faith may be found in other religions. Among them is Maulana Jalal-ud-Din Rumi, who has played an important role in making knowledge a purposeful, useful and means of reaching Allah. Maulana Rumi is perhaps the only person in the scientific history of Islam who has equal access to both external and internal sciences. He was as great a scholar of religion and jurisprudence as he was in his time. As a religious scholar, his scholarly prowess was such that when a problem could not be solved by any one, he would eventually be brought to his service and he would solve it in a few moments. Knowledge and education have a special place in the thoughts of Romy by studying which we can clearly know the importance and greatness of knowledge. What should be the knowledge? What should be the method of teaching? According to Maulana, knowledge is like an endless sea and the seeker of knowledge dives into these seas. If a student lives for thousands of years, he will still not be able to make ends meet. That there are no two hungry heads, one seeking the development of the world and the other, the other seeking knowledge and its means.
