A Persian Masnavi by Hazrat (R.A)

Hazrat composed this lengthy Masnavi after reading an essay, titled "Gomago" (A Persian word meaning To say or not to say), by Maulvi Muharram Ali Chishti of Lahore on the subject of Islamic teachings and culture. The essay was presented by the author at a seminar, and was greatly appreciated by the audience. The fact that the contents of the essay moved Hazrat to compose a Masnavi of as many as 193 verses provides enough evidence of their exceptionally high standard. Those conversant with Persian could get an idea of the loftiness of its contents by going through it.

Hazrat's afore said Masnavi, which became known as "Masnavi Gomago" because of its having been inspired by Maulana Muharram Ali's essay of the same title, ilates primarily on the subject of Wahdat-ul-Wajood and its various related aspects. It contains references to, and reproductions from, the celebrated Masnavi-e-Ma'navi of Hazrat Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi (R.A) which are shown in the inverted commas " ".
