One of the most controversial sections of Masnavi Manavi is the opening verses of Book II that about them different views of the interpretation have been suggested. In these verses, Jalāl al-Din Rūmi speaks implicitly of the causes of disruption in composing Masnavi Manavi. Also, the commentators of Masnavi Manavi have spoken about this very disruption and analyzed these verses. The present article attempts to propose new ideas about the causes of this disruption. To do this, we consider the prose prefaces of Masnavi and compare them with the final verses of the Book I, the first verses of Book II and Book III. The results indicates that on the one hand, the reason of the delay is due to the mood of the poet and on the hand it is due to the mood which the audiences were and the content of circumstances in general. As the present research is based on interpretation of the text, we believe that this article explains the cause of delay of composing the Book III and the period of inactivity better.
