The exact date that Sa'bān-I Velī, who was a designated successor of Hayreddīn Tokadī, arrived in Kastamonu, is unclear. His hagiography is devoid of specific circumstances that led to his departure from Bolu; whether Tokadī sent him or whether he migrated to Kastamonu after the death of the shaykh is not obvious. What is clear, however, is that Sa'bān-I Velī spent the majority of his life as a resident of Kastamonu after leaving Bolu. This chapter discusses his development and his following in Kastamonu from his arrival during the 1520s to his death in 1569. The first section discusses the struggles and challenges faced by Sa'bān-I Velī in establishing himself as a Halveti shakyh in Kastamonu. The second section discusses the conflicts that rose within the Sa'bāniye under his rule.
