    Mathnawi

    A genre of long poems, in Persian and other languages, written in rhyming couplets. Popular among mystics, often on epic themes of heroism, romanticism, and images of being separated from a lover. Some of the most famous mathnawi were written by Jalal al-Din Rumi (d. 1273 ), Abul Majd Majdud Sanai (d. 1131 ), Farid al-Din Attar (d. 1220 ), and Muhammad Iqbal (d. 1938 ).
