Mecmûas are a secret treasure of Turkish culture and literature for a wide variety of aspects such as content, method of arrangement, purpose of arrangement, and language. Great deals of information, documents, works, which have not revealed yet, are kept on the pages of these mecmûas. As the mecmûas are examined, they are introduced to scientific world. According to the catalog scans we made, there are two papers in Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Ataturk Library, Osman Ergin Collection, registered in OE Yz 0786 05 inventory number and arranged for a religious-mystical purpose, which currently cannot be found in other sources. One of them is the article entitled “İmām Ali Kerremallāhu vechehu ażretlerinin Madūmları Cenāb-ı anifiyye’ye Nasāyi-i Celilesi”. The work consists of seven pages. It contains Ali’s advice to his son Muhammad b. Hanafiyya. The work is written in an intimate style. In the work, there are appeals that fulfill the grandeur of a father’s love. There is no information about the source of the advice. The author wrote the mecmûa in February 1902. The author received advice from Ahmet Bey, who worked on the Tercümân-ı Hakîkat journal. Since they require a detailed investigation, the origin and correctness of the advice are not among the aims of the present study. Instead, the texts of the advices were transcribed and attempted to be interlaboratory by trying to remain faithful to the textual meaning of the words in this article.
