Maulana Rumi was one of the famous Islamic scholars and his couplet is the metaphysical principle of Islam that all creation reflecting being truth “Haq”.

Hast-o-Neest institution was named the Hast-o-Neest by the inspiration of Maulana Rumi’s couplet.

There is an Ayah/Verse in the Quran:

“Have they not ever considered in their minds that ALLAH did not create the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them except with (a system of) of truth and appointed period(of duration)…”

(Surah Ar-Room Verse 8)

The result of this Verse from the Quran is that nothing in this universe including the heavens, earth, and whatever is in between them is created with the truth. It means that there is a purpose behind these creations.

If we talk about art that we see on the walls or doors of something old, demonstrates the meaning of any purpose, message, or vision. So tradition is the act that people hold for a long time in any society or group of people.

Furthermore, Tradition is the knowledge or practice that is according to the Divine Revelation which is taught from the same Divine Source.

So, this institution provides a good awareness or understanding also about the traditional view.
