Posted on | December 21, 2019 | No Comments

The Sufism of The Ruabyat cover Free PDF e-book The Sufism of the Rubaiyat or The Secret of the Great Paradox by Norton F. W. Hazeldine, second edition 1906. The Persian word Rubaiyat means “reading between the lines”, or “a meaning, within a meaning”, or simply a paradox. The books consist of translations of beautiful mystical verses written by the Sufi mystic, mathematician, astronomer, and poet Omar Khayyam (980 – 1037). He was also known as “Omar The Tentmaker. Zamakhshari referred to him as “the philosopher of the world”.  Several sources suggest that he taught for decades the philosophy of Ibn Sina in Nishapur where he was born. His mausoleum remains a masterpiece of Persian architecture visited by many people every year. Outside Iran and Persian speaking countries, Omar Khayyám has influenced literature and societies through translation and works of scholars. Thomas Hyde (1636–1703) was the first to introduce the teachings of Omar Khayyam to the English speaking world.
