Cennet Mehmet Efendi he was the student of Aziz Mahmud Hudayi Master and he was always try to his best to his master.. Even when master Aziz Mahmud Hudayi was going to sleep that he was in front of the his door and maybe he will needs water or something that I can give very quickly.
Aziz Mahmud Hudayi (1541–1628), (b. Şereflikoçhisar, d. Üsküdar), is amongst the most famous sufi ermiş (Muslim saint) of theOttoman Empire. He was a mystic, poet, composer, author, statesman and Islamic scholar.
Born in Şereflikoçhisar, and he completed his studies in a medrese in Istanbul. He was the Sheikh of Sultan Ahmed I who constructed the famous Blue Mosque and especially gained the respect of Sultan Murat III. He read the first Friday prayer in this Mosque on its opening. The Sufi order Jelveti was founded by the Turkish saint Aziz Mahmud Hudayi. Aziz Mahmud Hudayi served as Qadi in Edirne, Egypt, Sham (Syria), and Bursa. He was a murid and khalifah of Üftade Hazretleri. He wrote about thirty works, seven of which are in Turkish.
His dua, “Those who visit us when we are alive, and those who visit our grave after our death and read the Fatiha when passing by our tomb are ours. May those who love us not drown at sea, may they not suffer poverty in their old age, may they not pass away without saving their faith,” has prompted many sailors of the Ottoman Empire to visit his grave before going out to sea.Aziz Mahmud Hudayi died in Üsküdar, Istanbul and is buried next to his mosque.
Joshua’s Hill (Turkish: Yuşa Tepesi or Hazreti Yuşa Tepesi), a hill located on the Asian shore of Bosphorus in Beykoz district of Istanbul, Turkey is a shrine containing a mosque and a tomb dedicated to Joshua (Turkish: Hazreti Yuşa). The sacred place, 180 to 195 meters (591 to 640 ft) above sea level, is also an important landmark for vessels coming from the Black Sea. At the summit of the hill is a terrace with benches for the comfort of pilgrims visiting the mosque and the tomb of Saint Joshua. To the north of the hill, Yoros Castle is situated.
Tomb of Joshua
At the top of the hill, a giant symbolic grave stands, known to the Europeans as the “Giant’s Grave”. It is believed by some Muslims to be the tomb of Prophet Joshua. Alternative traditional sites for the Prophet’s tomb are situated in Israel (the Shia shrine at Al-Nabi Yusha’), Jordan (An-Nabi Yusha’ bin Noon, a Sunni shrine near the city of Al-Salt ) and Iraq (the Nabi Yusha’ shrine of Baghdad..
A flat, rectangular earthen rise 17 meters (56 ft) long and 2 meters (6.6 ft) wide. The roofless area is surrounded with a high cast-iron grate, enclosed by means of an iron netting. The point is that the local inhabitants consider the grave miraculous and come here in order to be healed of their illnesses. But, the iron netting prevents the pilgrim from touching the holy ground inside the fence.
