Keywords: Mecduddin Ishak, Ibnu’I- Arabi, Futuvve, Konevi, Gıyaseddin Keyhusrev


People who are engaged in education of "Melik"s in Turkish history are called Atabey or Lala. These people were the advisers of the Sultan therewithal. Mecdüddün İshak was also one of them. We know that he was the son of Gıyaseddin Keyhüsrev I and hodja and advicer of İzzedin Keykavus I. He was not only engaged in sultan teaching, he was also a very important diplomat establishing the relationship between Turkey Selcuks and Abbasi Caliphate in the years of 1204 and 1221. He accomplished this mission successfully; the commissionaire of fütüvvet organisation revivified by Nasr Li Dinillah was brought to Anatolia. It was a chance for Turkey Seljuks that these commissionaires were Evhadüddin Kirmanî and Şeyh Nasiruddin Mahmud (Ahi Evren). Thus, Meddüddün îshak conduced to foundation of an organisation in Anatolia called Ahilik. He also brought a lot of scholar to Anatolia. This subject will be studied in our paper.
