Yahya Efendi or Molla Shaykhzadeh (b. 1494, Trabzon – d. 1570, Istanbul), Ottoman Islamic scholar, sufi, and poet buried in Beshiktash, Istanbul.

He was a well known scholar, having served as a teacher of religious sciences during the reign of Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent. Yahya Efendi had close ties with the palace, and was consulted by the Sultan throughout his life. After retirement, he built a dergah, numerous buildings and charitable trusts in Beşiktaş, and planted trees in the area.

Cennet Mehmet Efendi he was the student of Aziz Mahmud Hudayi Master and he was always tried to be 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.

Yusha (upon him be peace) was the great grandson of Prophet Yusuf (upon him be peace), his full name being Yusha bin Nun bin Afraeem bin Yusuf. Although he is not mentioned by name in the Holy Quran there are references made to him in two places. After the Bani Israil fled bondage in Egypt and wandered the desert for 40 years Musa (upon him be peace) died close to Bayt al-Maqdis, often referred to as ‘The Promised Land’. Yusha (upon him be peace) took over and led the Bani Israil over the River Jordan and into the surroundings of Jericho (also known locally as Ariha). It was a splendid city with large palaces. He laid siege over it for six months and then with a final push, raising the takbeer, he led his army in and conquered it. It is said that when they were about to take the city of Jerusalem it was on a Friday at Asr time. The sunset was close approaching which would subject them to the observance of the sabbath (on Saturday), meaning that they would have had to cease fighting. Yusha (upon him be peace) addressed the sun that it was under a command while he was under another command and he prayed to Allah, “O Allah, hold it back from setting!”. It was stopped till Allah made him victorious. A hadith has been narrated from Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) said, ”Surely, the sun has never been stopped from setting down for a human being except for Yusha (upon him be peace) on the evening he invaded the Bayt al-Maqdis.” The Bani Israil lived in the Bayt al-Maqdis for some time and Yusha (upon him be peace) taught them the Torah and ruled according to it. He lived for 127 years.
