Whirling Dervishes

Whirling Dervishes
This was the most famous of all the dervish orders and was created by Celaeddin Rumi (1207-1273) who came from Konya and is better known as Mevlana . Followers of his philosophy believed that by circling slowly like a sphere it would bring them closer to Allah. The ceremony and the clothes they wear are all symbolic; the white robes represent the shroud that is worn when they die, the black cloak refers to their tomb and the tall felt hats are their gravestones, and their dance, whirling with one arm raised high and the other pointing to the ground, transmit’s the blessings of heaven to earth.
