Through Analyzing poetic imagery in Diwān-e Shams, the current study tries to investigate sorrow and happiness in Jalāl al-din Rumi’s perspectives along with their origin and status in his works. Coincidence of sorrow and happiness in Rumi’s mystical worldview result in some images which chiefly correlate with musical language and poem. There appears to be a profound relationship between content and appearance in Rumi’s poem. So, the present article examines some language elements and the order of words in his sonnets to detect origin of Rumi’s sorrow and happiness. “Mystical and ideological experiences” of Rumi may be found in musical facet and dynamic imageries of his poems. Meantime, Rumi’s happiness, intoxication and creativity are signs of his mystical maturity. The relationship between Rumi’s mystical experiences their reflection in his poems, and situations including happiness and sorrow are obvious in his poems. Reflecting on his Diwān Shams, this study proposes that Rumi express a deep sorrow in his sonnets, while applying happy music in them. He resembles body to a cage which separate people from their homeland or, as he calls, their eternal canebrake. This research argues that Rumi suggests two main perspective in Diwān Shams: the thing we are (the origin of sorrow), and the purpose of our being (the origin of happiness). In this book, these two views are presented beside each other.
