Mystical tradition, enjoys a splendid capacity for offering proper prescriptions in encountering theoretical issues or practical and everyday life problems of contemporary human. As Jalal al-Din Muhammad Rumi (Mowlana) rose to fame, he became a great promoter of mysticism and globalized the influence of mystical discourse. Taking advantage of this wonderful capacity in a methodical and smart manner, promises to be approaching truth (in theory) and bringing satisfaction (in practice and real life).
As a general quarterly magazine, Negah-e Aftab will adopt an approach to promote self-awareness as the first step in seeking truth and satisfaction. To this end, the magazine will attempt to revisit Rumi by modernizing, practicalizing, and generalizing his epistemological legacy. For applying this approach, the quarterly will focus on intercultural and interdisciplinary solutions.
Needless to say, cultural assets such as Rumi will be liberated from the shackles of history when they are understood through a critical analysis and insightful reading to solve theoretical problems or to settle individual and social life difficulties.
Negah-e Aftab will proudly welcomes the scholars who can present logical arguments for and against Rumi’s school of thought.
In this regard, we will pay special attention to famous "FACES" of the past and the present, who have devoted their precious lives to conducting research on Rumi.
