Özet

There are important differences in the beliefs of Nusayri people and Alaouite-Bektashi people, while the similarities are quite less. As a result, poems on Nusayri people and Nusayrism are very rare in the Alaouite-Bektashi literature. As far as we know, the only Bektashi poet, who wrote a long poem declaring that he is a Nusayri, is Virani. There exist no analysis about Nusayri people and Nusayrism in the anthologies on Alaouite-Bektashi literature and "seven supremes" except Virani. In this paper, the reflection of Nusayrism on Alaouite-Bektashi literature is described and analyzed.
