Summary/Abstract: In this paper, the focus is on two issues: the question of Mevlana’s ancestry and the task of Iranians in presenting Mevlana’s literary heritage in the world. On the basis of a quotation from the work Manāqebol-‘ārefīnby Aflāki, prof. Džalālī in an argumentative manner writes about Mevlana’s Khorasanian ancestry, and he further supports his argument by the fact tha tall Mevlana’s works were written in Persian. On the other hand, by gradual introduction into the world of Mevlana’s poetry, professor shows that, although Mevlana’s thought was shaped by the culture of Khorasanian mental and intellectual mind-set, his world reaches all the way to the homeland of his soul, which is the Najistan for whom the naj weeps so painfully. Iranian cultural workers have a task to show that Mevlana is a descendant of Iranian civilization and rich cultural heritage in Persian by argumentative and academic promotion of Mevlana’s spiritual heritage.
