The Republic of Rumi


By Khurram Ali Shafique

The worldview presented here is not the whim of a writer. It is something that seems to be in the making in the world outside.

When you put down this book, you shall die in the Garden and be born in the outside world. The Garden may disappear but what you learnt here and what you are shall stay with you.

This is the end marker of the last zone, the sign of the end of your last stage and the time for you to make your last wish.

End Marker
Of the Wisdom of Civilization

I bow down before myself: temple or Kabah are no more.
This one is missing in Arabia, that one in other lands.

Sign of the End
Of Stage 7

O Lord of the Sun and the Moon! Look at my scattered dust too:
Every particle is agitating, look at this wilderness.

Seventh Wish

Illuminate my lifeless clay with the light of the song of David.
Grant the rising spirit of sparks to every particle of mine.
