The story goes that Shams of Tabriz was a nomadic mystic who wandered villages in search of a soul companion, a friend who could “endure his company” and be his intellectual counterpart. Shams’ search eventually led him to the scholar, Rumi. Upon encountering Rumi, Shams threw Rumi’s books into a river. “Who are you, and what are you doing?” Rumi asked. “You must now live what you’ve been reading about,” responded Shams. And at that moment, one of the greatest bromances in history began. And due to the pair’s genuine, deep connection, Rumi eventually transformed from a scholar into the world-renowned poet that we know today. Beyoncé and Jay-Z reverently named one of their twins, Rumi, after this most beloved poet.
