For the population of the Ottoman Empire, the death of the long-lived Sultan Süleymān ushered in a period of growing instability. Worsening the social and religious tensions of the age was the impending arrival of the Muslim millennium in 1000/1591, and the political and economic tensions unleashed by the Ottoman Empire. For the Sa'Baniye order in Kastamonu, the uncertainty was doubled by the death of Sa'bān-I Velī shortly after the death of Süleymān. Despite these challenges, the core membership of the order rallied around its leaders and principles, and a disparate group of several successors to Sa'bān's legacy emerged who succeeded in maintaining his legacy. This chapter discusses Sa'bān's successors, and the challenges faced by his nascent sub-branch's followers in the decades after his passing. It looks at the order immediately after Sa'bān's death, the stabilisation efforts of the order and Sa'bān's successors: Osmān Efendī, Hayreddīn Efendī, Muhyiddin Efendī and Ömer El-Fu'ādī.

Keywords:   Ottoman Empire, Sa'Baniye, Kastamonu, 'bān's successors, Osmān Efendī, Hayreddīn Efendī, Muhyiddin Efendī, Ömer El-Fu'ādī
