This study was carried out based on the work of Müstakimzāde ‘Şerh-i Divān-ı Ali el-Murtazâ’. Having an important place in the Islamic world, Hz. Ali's poems also have a very important place in the Islamic world. Our author used many different techniques to make the readers understand divan of Hz Ali well. Having a broad knowledge, Mustakimzade used sources also from Turkish, Arabic and Persian books besides Qur'an, Hadith and other religious books. In his commentary he used elements of the literature and culture of these three languages as well as some philological information of these languages.We also aim to reveal this unique/rare work by examining the method of commentary that Müstakimzde has brought to our literature and to draw attention to the richness of the scientific knowledge of Müstakimzāde.
