The Flute' is the main poem in the Mathnawi. It represents man whose life is similar to that of the flute. Jalal Aldin's Mathnawi is a spiritual training that penetrates to the depth of the soul. It also reflects a sufist's experience and was greatly adopted in Kurdish poetry. This can be seen in the poetry of Mulla Aljiziri. The flute has a history in different civilizations; it refers to the origin of man. It also reflects man's feeling of homesickness. The flute is of significant importance in Sufism and is a frequent symbol in poetry. That is why is used in Sufist religious songs and rituals.
