Ebussuud Efendi is one of the great sheikhul Islams in the peak century of the Ottoman Empire. Throughout his thirty-year life, he solved many important issues with his thousands of fatwas on various subjects and determined or changed their perspectives. Ebussuud Efendi, who wrote poetry enough to form divançe, wrote many verses fatwa; in addition, he has given fatwas on issues related to language and literature. These are fatwas where he evaluates various aspects of poet and poetry with his poet personality and style, and sometimes humorously, and sheds light on unknown aspects of poet and poetry. We are also working on his verse fatwas currently. In this study, the fatwas that he gave in the field of language and literature were classified within himself and those belonging to the aspects related to poets and poets were examined and introduced.
