TEHRAN, Jun. 27 (MNA) – Autonomous University of Madrid will translate a selection from the Masnavi-I Ma'navi into Spanish.

This will be the first time that the book is translated into Spanish directly from its original Persian version.  

Nadereh Farzamnia, an Iranian professor of the Persian language at the Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies and Oriental Studies of the Faculty of Arts, was commissioned to translate the work.

It is a series of six books of poetry that together amount to around 25,000 verses or 50,000 lines.  It is a spiritual writing that teaches Sufis how to reach their goal of being in true love with God.
