Shams al-Tabrizî is a darwish of love ecstasy and truth. He is a sufî who does not make a concession from his freedom and is also sharp-witted and a wise-man. He knows people very well and gets away from reputation. If Shams had not lived, Mawlânâ might have been known in an narrow geographical area. But if he had not meet Mawlânâ, no one would have known him. Althought Mawl ânâ treated him as a darwish at the beginnig, the relation between them is not like a relation between a darwish and a shaik or between a teacher and his pupil. This relation appears in a form of love between two friends even though they changes their roles from time to time. Shams al-Tabrizî set Mawlânâ on fire, but himself burned in the flames of this fire. In fact, coming of Shams al-Tabrîzî caused Mawlânâ to regain his conciousness and to find himself. Mawlânâ found the lost Shams in his soul and body. Shams gave Mawlânâ the formula of saving himself from the chain of absolute reason, of rationalism. After meeting Shams, Mawlânâ became an ocean boiling with love. They have been a mirror to each other by going beyond the positions of sheikdow, guideness, caliphate and discipleship.
