(The Gavs hazrat mentioned in the story is the blessed fathers of gavsı sani seyyid Abdulbaki who now reside in the village of Kahta in Adıyaman city)
Hajjı idris was originally from ( Siirt city ) and he was disciple – mürid – of Gavs Seyyid (Abdulhakim El hüseyni) – May Allah sanctify his secrets -,hajji idris , which served near of his Sheikh , was good sufi.
In those years, we were dealing with animal trade as a family. We had a great experience and trade in this matter. We were able to ship and sell animals to Iran by train wagons.
Usually, we used to buy animals in herds from Kars and the surrounding provinces and bring them to Siirt in the mansion for 17 days and sell our animals there. we used to go to gavs. Our conversation with the sofis was very good.Our trade was very good Alhamdulillah.
At this time, we once again bought animals in herds. We came to siirt from Kars, but when we brought the animals to the market, we couldn’t believe our eyes because we couldn’t buy these animals,because the animals were neglected and feeble. however, when we bought them, we looked at them all, examined them and bought them with appreciation, moreover, we were experienced traders in this regard, but the last thing we saw was not pleasant at all, we could not demand even half of the money we gave to these animals.
In the animal market, everyone was surprised by this and naturally we had damaged economically.We went to another purchase again, this time we bought our animals after a more careful examination. and again we came to siirt in 17 mansions (days) when we brought the animals to the market, subhanallah again the same view and the same conversations and again we suffered a great loss
The same incidents took place the third time, and we were no longer sure what to do, should we worry about the damage we have done commercially or damage our reputation, or should we be surprised at what happened to us with so much experience, in short, we couldn’t make sense of what happened… we thought,thought and We went straight to Gavs
When we buy animals, they look strong, fat and beautiful like a lion, tiger and camel, but when we bring them to the market, they look scruffy puppy and neglected, exhausted. We said we dıd not understand what’s going on, we dıd not know what to do We explained our situation.
The next time you go into the animal trade, make your intentions like this ( I was buying on behalf of şahı hazne. He said, “When you bring it and sell it in the animal market, make an intention that I was selling it on behalf of şahı hazne “(Şahı hazne : Ahmed el haznevi k.s is the deceased sheikh of Gavs. Our gavs used to attribute all the goodness and beauty to him). he said inşallah ıt would be good.
Indeed, on our next visit we made intention
as our gavs described. we brought what we bought and sold it. we made a profit in a very short time and we regained our commercial reputation in a very short time.
When we came and informed him of the situation, he said that Saadat’s patronage (himmet) is great
