Jesus Christ and Virgin Mary in Rumi's Poetry

The Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ

Virgin Mary, whose soul was shredded into pieces
by the anxieties over her immaculate conception,
became pregnant with the charming Christ.

A Christ who doesn't belong to the earth or the sea,
a  Christ who transcends the boundaries of both worlds.

Just as the immaculate soul of Virgin Mary 
became pregnant by the Soul of all souls (God),
this whole world shall also get impregnated
like the Immaculate Mary's divinely blessed soul.

This world shall give birth to a whole new world.
A beautiful new world that will cause huge uproars 
until the Day of Judgment.

همچو مریم جان از آن آسیب جیب
حامله شد از مسیح دلفریب
آن مسیحی نه که بر خشک و ترست
آن مسیحی کز مساحت برترست
پس ز جان جان چو حامل گشت جان
از چنین جانی شود حامل جهان
پس جهان زاید جهانی دیگری
این حشر را وا نماید محشری
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

Word Became Flesh in Virgin Mary’s Womb by Power of Holy Spirit

I envisioned the womb of Virgin Mary
as the universe completely engulfed by raging fires.
Searching deeper through burning flames,
I discovered a whole new world.
Bit by bit and step by step, 
as I finally made my way
to the very heart of those raging fires,
I looked....and looked...and kept looking...
then I saw my sweet-breathed Jesus.

 من جهانرا ديدم چون رحم مريم كنون
  چون در اين آتش بديدم در سكون
اندرين آتش بديدم عالمي
  ذره ذره اندرو عيسي دمي
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

Saint Elizabeth's Joyous Confessions To Virgin Mary
From Rumi's Masnavi - Book # 2, Story of John the Baptist (peace be upon him) still inside his mother's womb bowing down to Jesus (peace be upon him) 

The pregnant mother of John the Baptist (Elizabeth)*
excitedly confided to Virgin Mary
the most incredible experience of her pregnancy:
" O Mary, I believe without any doubt
the child you're carrying inside your womb,
is a King.
He is a righteous messiah and messenger of Lord.
O Mary, when I was standing next to you,
I felt the son I'm carrying inside (John the Baptist)
bowing down to your unborn child (Jesus).
John leaped for joy and bowed down
with such passion and fervor,
that my whole body is still aching."
"I know my dear Elizabeth,
I already know who he really is.
Deep inside my womb,
I also felt your baby (John the Baptist)
prostrating himself before my beautiful baby Jesus," Mary said.

 *Saint Elizabeth (Alisabeth or Ishba for Muslims - حضرت ايشباع  يا اليصابات) and Virgin Mary (Maryam Muqaddas or Maryam Bakra for Muslims- يا مریم مقدس  حضرت مریم باکره ) were cousins. John the Baptist (Yahya for Muslims -حضرت یحیی) and Jesus Christ (Issa Masih for Muslims - حضرت عيسي مسيح) grew up together as very close second cousins and friends. Rumi's above poetic story is known within the Biblical and Christian teachings as 'Mary Visits Elizabeth' in the Holy Bible - New Testament: Luke 1:39-56.

حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي دروصف و تجليل تولد حضرت عیسی (علیه السّلام) از مادر باکره
حضرت مریم  مقدس یا حضرت مریم عذرا-سلام الله علیها

   سجده کردن یحیی علیه السلام در شکم مادر مسیح را علیه السلام  داستان
دفتر دوم- معنوی مثنوی

مادر يحيي به مريم در نهفت‌
پيش‌تر از وضع حمل خويش گفت،
كه يقين ديدم درون تو شهي است‌
كه اولوالعزم و رسول آگهي است‌
چون برابر اوفتادم با تو من
كرده سجده حمل من اندر زمن‌
اين جنين مر آن جنين را سجده كرد
كز سجودش در تنم افتاد درد
گفت مریم من درون خویش هم
سجده‌ای دیدم ازین طفل شکم

Jesus is The Reason for the Season

Jesus is The Reason for the Season,
Christmas is Christ's Holy Season.
During this Season [Christmas],
People tend to be nicer to each other; 
they smile more and act a lot less rude!

دور عیسی بود و ایام مسیح
خلق دلدار و کم‌آزار و ملیح
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

Lord Deposited the Light of Christ into Virgin Mary through Archangel Gabriel

The heart of Mary was not ready 
to carry the light of Christ
until the Holy Spirit
got invisibly deposited
into Immaculate Mary's womb.

مریم دل نشود حامل انوار مسیح
تا امانت ز نهانی به نهانی نرسد
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

Let's All Take a Moment and Pray for Jesus and Mary

Come, let's all take a moment
and pray 
in silence and solitude to Lord Almighty.
Like Jesus Christ,
let's all pay our deepest respects to Virgin Mary.

بیا تا با خدا خلوت گزینیم
چو عیسی با چنین مریم بسازیم
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

Archangel Gabriel was the Bearer of Lord's Holy Spirit to Virgin Mary

I'm the Archangel Gabriel of love, 
You are my divine calling.
I'm the sick and needy of this world,
You are Jesus son of Mary.

جبرییل عشقم و سدره م تویی 
من سقیمم عیسی مریم تویی
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

Baby Jesus was Restless in His Crib

My soul is restless inside the crib of my body
like baby Jesus inside his cradle.
Where is Mary, mother of Jesus
to tie up my soul child to my crib?

جان همچو مسیحی است به گهواره قالب
آن مریم بندنده گهواره ما کو
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

The Silence of Blessed Virgin Mary

The wind is blowing,
the river is flowing,

and our hands being washed in it.
We're all talkative like Christ, 
but the earth is silent like Mary.

باد پویان و جویان آب‌ها دست شویان
ما مسیحانه گویان خاک خامش چو مریم
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

Jesus Is For All Seasons

O People,
this season is the Season of Jesus.
Pay good attention to the secrets and teachings
of Christ's Faith
With all your heart and with all you soul.

دوردور عيسي است اي مردمان
بشنوید اسرار کیش او به جان
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

Every One of Us Has a Christ Inside

Every one of us is a living Christ in this world.
Each and every pain and suffering of this world
can be healed by a touch of our healing hand.

هر یکی از ما مسیح عالمیست
هر الم را در کف ما مرهمیست
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي

Infinite Thanksgiving To the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Mother of Jesus

The whole world feels overjoyed,
giving a hundred thanks and praises to God 
because Jesus is expressing his gratitude
to his Virgin mother, Mary.

جهان شاد است وز او صد شکر دارد
که عیسی شکرها دارد ز مریم
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

The Smiling Jesus

I'm the beautifully smiling Jesus,
the whole world shall come back to life when I return.
But I'm more attached to my Lord now
than to my own Virgin mother, Mary.

منم عیسی خوش خنده که شد عالم به من زنده
ولی نسبت ز حق دارم من از مریم نمی‌دارم
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

Jesus was Conceived by Holy Spirit inside Blessed Virgin Mary's Womb

Like a treasure-keeper,
I tightly guard his pain deep inside my heart.
The light of my heart has become illuminated
by the divine light.
Just like the heart of beautiful Virgin Mary 
who carried baby Jesus in her womb.

غمش در دل چو گنجوری دلم نور علی نوری
مثال مریم زیبا که عیسی در شکم دارد
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

Two day Old Baby Jesus Spoke in the Crib 

The heavily pregnant Virgin Mary
always showed warmth and affection.
The two day old baby Jesus
started talking in his crib.

دل مریم آبستن یک شیوه کند با من
عیسی دوروزه تن درگفت زبان آید
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

Lord Sent Archangel Gabriel to blow Holy Spirit into Virgin Mary's Womb

If the Holy Spirit is also blown
into your womb,
give birth to a baby Jesus
if you ever want to give birth.

در جیب شما چو دردمیدند
عیسی زایید اگر بزایید
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

The Childhood of Jesus Christ and his First Cousin - John the Baptist 

Jesus used to always laugh,
but John the Baptist was a crying baby.
Beaming with divine confidence,
Jesus was constantly smiling, 
but John was a sad and crying kid.

ضحاک بود عیسی عباس بود یحیی
.این ز اعتماد خندان وز خوف آن معبس
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

Jesus Heals the Deaf and Blind

The deaf and blind of this world
became instantly healed by Christ
as soon as Jesus son of Mary ordered them:
Get Up and Dance!

کور و کران عالم دید از مسیح مرهم
گفته مسیح مریم کای کور و کر به رقص آ
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي 

Why The World Desperately Needs Jesus

Where is our sweet-breathed Christ 
who no longer calls for interventions of Mary?
A risen Christ, in whose absence, 
Christians have been shredding to pieces
the very soul and robe of Christ-hood.

کو آن مسیح خوش دمی بی‌واسطه مریم یمی
کز وی دل ترسا همی پاره کند زنار را
حضرت مولانا جلال الدين بلخي رومي
