By the turn of the ninth/fifteenth century to the eleventh/seventeenth century, the Halveti group expanded dramatically. This expansion was triggered by several factors, among which is the increased interest among Anatolian Turkish Muslims and the rise of the Ottoman Empire. This chapter provides an outline of how the Halveti order spread and its sub-branches multiplied, and how it took a position of widespread political, religious and social power and influence in the Islamic world as a whole. It follows the Halveti order as they expanded their reach westward into Asia Minor and other lands that eventually became part of the Ottoman Empire, and also examines how the order developed and fostered associations with powerful Ottoman statesmen and leaders who facilitated its rapid rise among the Ottomans. Finally, the chapter examines how the distant and far-flung Halveti groups branched out and created diversity and sub-branches of the Halveti order across various regions of the empire.
