Scandalous, blasphemous and slyly anti-Islamic

Nothing to do with Rumi’s writings. This is a false title. This is covert agenda of demonizing Islam and Prophet Mohammed. Making fun of Muslims, their beliefs. Some of the stories are outrageous and totally unacceptable.

Enchanting throughout a delight of wordsmanship

The work was captivating, Rumi plays with words like a musical instrument. For anyone who loves prose.
