In this article we want to survey effect of love in Mawlana ,s life and his works. We want to understand what love is in his idea and his look. For earning this purpose we used his works like Mathnawi2, Ghazalyate Shams1, Rubais, Majalise Saabe, Fihi Mafih, and at The end of this article we earned these results that the love that Mawlana could find is very different with today ,s loves. He could find love by shams e Tabrizi and by this way he found his God. In fact love took some things and give him holy things. His love can change the universe and makes and destroys everything. He cannot define love but he experienced it. In his life, he was eager to understand God. In fact the purpose of love is knowing to God well.
