At the beginning, dr. Kazem Zoghi Barani, director ot of the Scientific Research Institute "Ibn Sina" welcomed the attendees and said that he was especially proud of the Institute for publishing the book by dr. Music on Mevlevian Wisdom added: "Talking about the ocean of spirituality and the mystical tradition of the Teslauf literature is a difficult undertaking. This book will contribute to a better acquaintance and spiritual connection of the people of Iran and Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as the promotion of the message of peace, love and friendship among people.
Below is the discussion forum moderator Nermin Hodžić talked about the author, dr. Elvir Musić and his life and academic path, and reminded him of the long-standing tradition of reading and studying classical Persian literature of Sufi provenience in Bosnia. Hodzic emphasized that this is one of the special features of the Bosnian Muslim religious tradition. "Elvir Musić is a representative of the contemporary generation of carriers of the tradition of reading and translating Persian Sufi classics like Mevlana and Hafiz Shirazia in the world of circles," added Hodžić.
Dr. Mubina Moker, in her review of the book "The Treasure of Mevlana Wisdom", reminded of the meaning of wisdom as an esoteric knowledge based on spiritual experiences. Dr. Mocker recalled that besides Ruma, we are introduced to the book by seven prominent figures of Islamic gnosis and Tesawuf that can be associated with the Mevleinian tradition: Beha Veled, Shemsoudin Tabrizi and Burhanuddin Tirmizi (influencing the spiritual formation of Rumi) and Sultan Veled (Rumi's son ), Sheikh Galib Dede, Leyla Hanuma, and Sheref Hanuma (the hereditary of Rumi and, in general, the Mevleinian tradition in later periods). "The common characteristic of all these persons is the insistence on dialogue with ourselves, and we see such a fuss by the author himself, who especially captivates his imaginative and innovative language solutions.
Dr. Amina Šiljak Jesenković, In her review of the book, emphasized, above all, the significant quality of the author's relation to the Sufian tradition and literature: Elvir Musić does not deal with writing and translation as a profession, but as a vocation. She further talked about the contents of the book, emphasizing the versatility and wide erudition of the characters represented in it, and regretted that the author, in a way, nevertheless shortened the book, given the abundance of material that he had. In the second part of his review, dr. Šiljak spoke in more detail about the character and work of Sheikh Galib Dedet.
This program was enhanced by the music performance by dr. Amira Redžić (recital, a selection of verses from the presented book), Amra Zubčević (naj) and professor Marina Tomić (violin).
