Approaches of Alawis on Basıc İslamic Worshıp: Sorgun Example
Alevism, shortly defined as those who love Ali, spread to Anatolia after the acceptance of Islam by the Turks and continued to live in different regions in different ways to date. The difference between the Anatolian Alevis was revealed by the substantial studies conducted with different scholars in several disciplines. In addition to these studies, this study aims to examine the approaches of Alewites living in Yozgat on basic Islamic principles. The study was carried out in Sorgun district which has the highest Alevi population following the city center. Alevi population lives in 19 villages in Sorgun district. In this study, interviews were conducted with 21 people living in 8 selected villages. In the interview, some questions about basic worship principles in Alevisim such as prayer, fasting, pilgrimage, zakat, sacrifice and the cem rites were asked to the participants. According to the findings, the Sorgun Alawites have a similar understanding of worship with the other Anatolian Alevis. The majority of Sorgun Alevis do not pray. In addition, they accept Hacı Bektaş-i Velî as a pilgrimage instead of Kabe, accept the muharrem fast as the main fast, adhere to the sacrifice worship but also prefer to sacrifice under different names and accept the tax given to the state as zakat.
