Abstract:
The story of "a person who, in the time of the David (AS), always prayed: O'God! Give me legit aliment without endeavor", is a symbolic story at the end of which Mowlavi reveals the mysteries and expresses the epilogue as an author-centered narrator. In this case, there is no argument, but the quality of the dialogue and the internal and external layers of the story suggest that there is another purpose behind this symbolic story. The main question is that: If Rumi's goal in this story was to achieve a definite moral outcome (killing the soul), then why have the continuous dialogues about "Jahd" and "Tawakkul" been expressed? The possible answer may be that this seemingly unified story has two parts. In the first section, the issues of "Jahd" and "Tawakkul" are presented without reaching a definite conclusion that suggests that the two concepts co-exist in the context of the story. The second section argues about the subject of the soul and struggling with it to reach to the moral teaching that “the cow of the soul (nafs) must be killed”.
