Rumi’s full name was Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi and he was a Persian Sufi mystic. People use to call him Mevlâna or Rumi.
The Sejluk sultan had invited Rumi to Konya city and offered him his rose garden to stay. Rumi stayed in the rose garden for the rest of his life and guided Sultan Alladin threw his life.
