 H. Qobadi.PH.D 
The stories in Mathnavi are full of optimism and hope; to the extend that it can be said Rumi believes that happiness and exuberance are regarded as original and essential issues.As a matter of fact the human spirit is based on hope, while despair, sorrow and misery, and sadness are phenomenal and temporary.
This paper is written using the attributive method and reasoning; interpreting all the elements, specially the contents and characterization of the stories. It intends to reveal this concept; that hope fully exists in the depth of Rumi's poetical stories in a manner that one fails to separate them from the essence of these works. Also the pictures in his poetries are full of concepts related to hope and its devices. In addition to the mentioned features, happiness, vitality and avoiding any sorrow is clear-cut in his poetries. Rumi’s view towards nature indicates hope too. Even when he speaks of Autumn, he regards it as rebirth, and resurrection of spirit and finally a preparation stage for Spring. Along with all that, Rumi relates to spring as the re-growth of nature. Despair, sorrow and sadness do not have a considrable share in his poetries. 
Studying the external, the internal and also the marginal music of Mathnavi Maanavi reveals that he is the poet of hope. Even abundance of intonation-emphasizing happiness and life in creating rare or new intonation- in Rumi’s Ghazals(sonnets), show a mind having tendency towards innovation, while he regards despair as a means for devastating the mind.
