Mosques, Istanbul: 12 reviews and 28 photos

I am going to tell you an Ottoman Sheik today.Sheik (Head of A Group of Dervishes)Vefa
was the important religous person of MEHMED II he was the head of the ZEYNIYYE way.

MEHMED II tried to be the person of his Way but Sheik Vefa didnt let him do.3 times MEHMED II has tried to meet with him and visited his tekkiah but Sheik Vefa didnt open the door.

Cause he told his friends" if I open the door to him I need to recieve some gifts and other thing from the Sultan and that will destroy my believe .I want to meet with him but I want to stop my self for my religious responsibility."

Sheik Vefa lived with his apostles after MEHMED II death he did the last prayf of the Sultan and caried him to his TOMB.

After MEHMED II came the Rule BEYAZID II and after Sheik VEFA death BEYAZID II ordered current nosque and tomb.

Address: VEFA -FATIH
