What you need to Know About Rumi, the Poet Beyoncé and JAY-Z Named Their Baby After

When Jay-Z and Beyoncé got Rumi and Sir trademarked following the birth of their twins, fan theories abounded and speculation rose that those were the names the famed power couple had chosen for their newborns.

 

On July 14, Beyoncé confirmed that those were indeed their names with a majestic announcement photo, much to the thrill of the public. Once everyone had settled down, a single question remained on everyone’s lips – what inspired Jay-Z and Beyonce to choose those names for their twins?

 

Sir Carter is a little more straightforward, as in sirs were often considered royalty during the 17th and 18th centuries, so it was likely a testament to the same. Rumi, on the other hand, can only be subject to speculation. The theory that currently makes the most sense is that the name is a reference to the famed 13th century poet Jamal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi.

 

Rumi, the poet, is famed for his writings about his beliefs on love, religion, and the virtue of being of service to all people, despite your individual beliefs, class, or race, and his practice of Sufism, an Islamic movement based on mysticism.

 

The practice of Sufism teaches its followers that life on earth is a tomb for the soul and afterwards, they will all move to the divine. In order to connect with heavenly bodies, Rumi’s teachings preached playing music and dancing to free the spirit.

 

The music he used to play went on to become the fundamental basis for classical Iranian and Afghan music thereafter being adapted, along with his poems, by a number of contemporary artists like Philip Glass in his opera ‘Monsters of Grace’ and Madonna in her appearance on Deepak Chopra’s 1998 album ‘A Gift of Love: Music Inspired by the Love Poems of Rumi’, an album which additionally featured a great number of renown guests like Demi Moore and Goldie Hawn.

 

Perhaps because of the poet’s history and the kind of meaningful works he had, all attached to devotion to love and the acceptance of everyone in society, the Carters seemed to have picked a powerful statement-laden name for their newborn.

 

Considering Rumi’s fame and importance in the history of music as a whole, we are free to hope and wait for another Carter music prodigy to make the world fall in love with his music all over again.

Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today. 🙏🏽❤️👨🏽👩🏽👧🏽👶🏾👶🏾
