Bayramiye


Bayramiye

Bayrami, Bayramiye, Bayramiyya, Bayramiyye, and Bayramilik refer toa Turkish Sufi order (tariqah) founded by Hajji Bayram Hacı Bayramı Veli in Ankara around the year 1400. The order spread to the then Ottoman capital Istanbul where there were several tekkes and into the Balkans (especially Rumelia, Bosnia, Macedonia and Greece). The order also spread into Egypt where a tekke was found in the capital, Cairo.

Although the order today is almost nonexistent, its influence can be seen in Aziz Mahmud Hudayi founder of the Jelveti order and the prolific writer and Muslim saint Ismail Hakki Bursevi.
