Bektashi Dervish at Tangiers, Morocco Featured Image

Bektashi Dervish at Tangiers, Morocco

Bektashi Dervish at Tangiers, Morocco. Founder of the Bektashi order was Hajji Bektash Wali (1209 - 1271) - is today a renowned figure in the history and culture of both Ottoman Empire and modern Turkey. Dervish or Darvesh in Persian usually refers to a person who is a seeker of the truth i.e. universal truth. Within the Islamic tradition such people are often known as Sufis, Sufi, people of the way or mystics and they come from every strata of society; here monetary considerations are inapplicable since the situation is that of a deep personal inner spiritual longing. There are in existence a number Sufi Orders many of which bear the name of a great saint and within these orders various practices have continued over the centuries in order to assist generations of seekers whose desire is to be brought to reality itself. It is said that the number of ways to reality/truth exceeds the number of grains of sand on the beach. It may be noted that this infinite number of ways to truth can even start at a point beyond religion, ultimately the truth is an universal quality. Date: circa 1910s

Detail from the Bektashi Meydan door in Haji Bektash Veli Mu

"On the left of the second courtyard of the Haji Bektash Veli Museum, is the Meydan Evi bearing the earliest inscription in the complex, dated 1367. The timber roof of the Meydan Evi - where formal initiation ceremonies and acts of confession took place - has been beautifully restored, showing an ancient construction technique still in use in rural houses in central and eastern Anatolia. It's now an exhibition hall containing objects of significance to the order, including musical instruments and a late portrait of Haji Bektash. apparently deep in mystical reverie, with a hart in his lap and a lion by his side. In the Meydan there are twelve posts and the Taht-i Muhammad. The exact center of the Meydan is called "dar" (place of execution)." Date: 2012

The second door of Balim Sultan Tomb

"The second door of Balim Sultan's Tomb in Haji Bektash Veli Museum in Nevsehit Turkey. Balim Sultan is known amongst the Bektashi as the second founder of the order (Turkish Pir Thani). The present-day initiation service of a Bektashi is sometimes called "The Method of Balim Sultan". The tomb which is reputed to be that of Balim Sultan has an inscription over the door which calls the one buried there Hizir Bali, the son of Resul Bali, the son of Haji Bektash of Horosan, and the date is giving as 1519. This can refer to a spiritual son not necessarily a physical son. Outside the door of the Balim Sultan Tomb, there is a black mulberry tree said to have been thrown as a burning brand from Horosan by Ahmet Yesevi, which determined where Haji Bektash was to go. It is believed that to rub the bark on any ill part of the body will cure it. The Alevi believe this tree to still be burning with a blue flame on its tip." Date: 2012
