Passages from the Qur’an

SAY: We believe in God and that which was revealed unto us and that which was revealed unto Abraham, and Ismail, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the tribes, and that which Moses and Jesus received, and that which the Prophets received from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them and unto Him we surrender Qur'an 2:136

Mevlevi Women

In Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi's family there had long been a tradition of the recognition of the spiritual beauty, yearning, and wisdom of women. It was his grandmother, the princess of Khorasan, who first lit the spark of inquiry in Rumi's father, Bahaeddin Weled. It was under her care (Bahaeddin's father died when he was two years old) that he grew to be the "Sultan of the learned" and a great spiritual light for his world. Mevlana's mother, Mu'mine Hatun, a devout and saintly lady, was very dear to him. Mu'mine Hatun was the beautiful daughter of Rukhneddin, the governor of Balkh in what is now Afghanistan.
