A Persian gazel written by Husein Lamekani

  • Slobodan Ilić, dr.


The Gazi Husrev-beys Library MS. No. 3045 contains a Divan with about 70 Turkish poems (gazel) written by Husein Lamekani.
He belonged to the Hamzawi dervish brotherhood which, as heretical, was severely perseouted towards the end of the 16th century.
Among the gazels in Turkish the manuscript contains one written in the Persian language. Thematically, this gazel doesn't differ much from the rest of Lamekani's poetical opus. The author described in it his mystical experiences speaking of love as the only way which leads to the cognition of the God.
