Aşık Ruhsati

At first he was Îcâdî, later he was called Cehdî and finally he received his sheik’s blessing and became worthy of being nicknamed as Ruhsatî, in fact Ruhsatî Baba was a Nakshi folk poet. Rule of Islam and Sunnahs of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) are the backbones of his poetry. Throughout his 70-yearlong journey of life, he points other “earth-wrecks” to the way of the ultimate reunion with his poetry, and he warns them about the earthly temptations. In his poems he advised to be honest, to mind fellowship, to protect the poor and wronged, stand in the face of injustice and aimed at preserving social peace through planting the idea of ummah on Muslims’ minds. The distinctive feature of Ruhsatî’s koşma is a blessed purpose. That holy purpose sometimes disguises as tolerance, sometimes as prayer, sometimes fast, sometimes as patience…His poetry is a journey that brings the reader to the ultimate good.
