Ömer El- Fu'ādī is a transitional figure in the history of the Sa'Baniye. His accession to the successorship represented the de facto end of the era, for he held the distinction of being the first head of the Sa'Bāniye too young to have been trained in the Sufi path by the Sā'nān himself. This does not mean that he was entirely cut from the founder, for he was introduced to him as a child. Sa'Bāniye would, however, have been aware that Sa'bân had predeceased the vast majority of Kastamonu's population by the time he came to power. This chapter discusses the life of Ömer El-Fu'ādī and his critical place in the chain of Sa'bāniye shaykhs. It first discusses the early life of Fu'ādī, his involvement in the Sa'bāniye order and the path that led this Sufi aspirant to become the successor of Sā'bān. The second section of the chapter discusses Fu'ādī's rise to leadership following Muhyiddīn's death. Unlike his predecessors, Fu'ādī was a prolific writer and mirrored Sā'bān's long life. One of his important contributions to the Sa'bāniye was the construction of the Menākibname-i Sā'bān-i Velī, which expanded the Sa'bāniye legacy.
