This concluding chapter discusses the important conclusions that can be drawn about the history of the Halveti order. It concludes that while the newly uncovered sources about the Halveti have provided some clarity on their origin, this should not be a distraction from the basic problem that the historical record suffers from the gaps which require further exploration and from the distortions which reflect the concerns of subsequent generations of Muslims who made that record. The chapter also concludes that caution must be applied in the interpretation of the development of such Sufi orders as the Halveti in the Ottoman Empire, for many of the sources which have been used to narrate their history emerged out a period from the late tenth/sixteenth to twelfth/eighteenth century where concerns about the legitimacy of Sufi orders like the Halveti had become increasingly prevalent. It further concludes that the transformation of the Muslim mystical thought which unfolded between the appearance of Ömer El-Halvetī and Ömer El-Fu'ādī remains an ongoing and an unfinished process, hence further exploration of the Halveti order is hoped for and assumed.
