(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.

Dr. Ahmet ÇAĞIL was old friends with his older brother Hacı İDRİS. When they saw each other, Dr Ahmed used to make joke with him by saying that : “Idris, don’t you feel sorry for Muhammad’s ummah? Get weak a little, how would we go to carry this huge body when you die, it would be very difficult, come show us some mercy and get weaker.

Hadji brother said to him, “I becaming fat  like this so that the ummah of Muhammad would have a great reward. I do it so that they would bring mercy after me after I die. So, I was caring about Ummah of Muhammad like you cared. Actually, you get a little fat so that the ummah of Muhammad would earn a reward while carrying you. With this state of yours, you would not give any opportunity to gain reward for anyone, They would look at your coffin to see if there is anyone in it, because you were light…” Whenever they met, they would compliment each other and hug each other with longing.

This affectionate state of theirs towards each other… It made one feel that their world and our world were other worlds.


Hacı İdris tells: One day, I was going to Diyarbakır on the train with Lieutenant Colonel Mehmet ( Mehmet yarbay ) . While we were chatting between us, we started  to talk about Dr. Ahmet and his faithful service to Gavs. we talked about him with affection. On this occasion, Lieutenant Colonel Mehmet came to a lot of conversation, stood up and İdris , If there was something between Dr Ahmet and the saadat, When we went to him, he said that he would bring us a nice soup and stopped for a while.

He said that imagine  , let him make such a dish and a kebab, when we went, he would come in front of us without saying anything.and serving us. he asked me to what ı would say ?

ı said , kurban, , you know, I like to eat, all of what you said were good for me, I say it’s very good, what can I say, we’re hungry already.”

Then, suddenly, Lieutenant Colonel Mehmet jumped up again and said, “Hacı İdris, we forgot something very important, we are nakhshibendi dervish, Shah Naksibend loves sweets very much” and turning towards Diyarbakır. If there is anything between Ahmet and saadat, after these meals, they should offer us Diyarbakır dessert in honor of the sahı  naqshbandi, he said with affection and enthusiasm. We came to Diyarbakır with such conversation and love. On the way to Dr Ahmet’s house, the lieutenant colonel turned to me and said, “Idris, we said a lot of words on the train, Dr. Ahmet does not know about our visit, let’s see what happens. I said, “kurban, if there was something between you, Dr  Ahmet and saadat, we would have a very nice feast and we would eat, otherwise we would starve. In my mind, you set such a table with conversation that my mouth is watering. I’m telling you in advance, in spite of you, I’m going to go and eat at a kebab shop,” jokingly said to Dr. We arrived at Ahmet’s house. We knocked on the door, Dr. Ahmet greeted us with his usual calm and welcomed us. He gave us water and sat in front of us.he said ,sofiler “You came from the road, let me set a table for you, it’s new for the food” then he went to kitchen. I and mehmet lieutenant colonel looked at each other and smiled.

After a while, the dinner table began to arrive. Just as Mehmet Lieutenant Colonel told the food on the train before, Dr Ahmet brought all the dishes in that order. He offered us a treat and said, “This was the table of saadat, it was a gift of Saadat.he said. We looked at each other with smiles and ate our meals without saying anything. we were full. we were just about to get off the table,

Dr Ahmet said that , “Where were you going kurbans? , if you left here without eating sweet , Shah Naksibend, would sue you. Diyarbakır dessert were coming”. Lieutenant Colonel Mehmet stood up with enthusiasm and said, “Dr. Ahmet said, “I swore there was a lot between you and saadat, I swore there was a lot of things” and he hugged him tightly and we briefly told the story.

Dr. Ahmet smiled, Sofiler, why were you bothering Saadats for such a small business, if you had phoned me, I would have done it again, you are gavs’sufis, you have a place on my heart. He smiled and said let me offer you tea and left us.
