Rumi was originally from the Balkh, in present-day Afghanistan. When the Mongols invaded Central Asia, Rumi along with his family and a group of disciples, set out westwards.
It is then that Attar gave the young Rumi his Asrārnāma, a book about the entanglement of the soul in the material world. This meeting had a deep impact on the eighteen-year-old Rumi and later became the inspiration for his works.
