Dear Dr. Shabbir,
I only presented that rendition of the verse of Rumi on Outbeacon as an altermative translation/reading that some scholars suggest (it has not been published on the website yet), but surely i fully agree with your perfect translation of the verse.
As you wrote, Rumi's works are loaded with false and misleading material such as Wahdat-e Wojud etc.
I have never liked his verses and comments.
However, from the aspect of the quality of poetry and language, really he was a genius, but a genius that used his talent in the wrong ways.
(i humbly should add it that i am only a student and maybe my comment on this verse would be not correct)
