Rumi Club for Interfaith Dialogue

Our Aim

Why Interfaith Dialogue?

Why Rumi?

 

 

Our Aim

  • To develop a medium for dialogue among people of different cultures and religions.
  • To awaken awareness about different cultures and religions and to eradicate misunderstanding due to lack of information.
  • To point out the common aspects among religions and cultures.
  • Why Interfaith Dialogue?

    We want to focus on Interfaith and Intercultural Dialogue. We believe that there is a need for such a club in the university. Although most of us know our cultures and religions fair enough, we don't know much about other faiths and cultures. This lack of knowledge might cause a lot of misunderstanding and unnecessary tension. We believe that this problem can be solved through dialogue. We hope that peace in the world is closer when people know each other better. Ours will be a humble attempt for this reason.

    Why Rumi?

    We chose the name "Rumi" for our club because Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi (Mowlana Jalaluddin Rumi) is a symbol figure for these purposes. We are motivated by Rumi's well known message and call for love, humanity and peace. The following verses summarize what we mean:

    "Come, Come again
    Whoever you are
    Whether you are infidel,idolater or wanderer
    Whether you have broken your vows a hundred times
    Ours is not a caravan of despair
    This is the gate of hope
    Come, come yet again, come"
