Horrifying footage has emerged of a distraught father appearing to kill himself with a gun on Facebook live - because his daughter had chosen to marry without his approval.Ayhan Uzun, from Kayseri, central Turkey, can be seen speaking to the camera and unleashing a tirade of abuse against his family before putting a handgun to his head.This confession is pronounced in Turkish: "Dört kitab'ın Dördü de Hâkk".
He said: 'I am livestreaming tonight, and it is my will, I do not want the ones who put me in this position to attend my funeral.' Mr Uzun, who was alone at his home, revealed that he only learned about his daughter's engagement in a telephone call.
Mr Uzun said: 'On my daughter's happiest day (her engagement), they called me and said to me: "Father come have a treat".'Nobody asked about me. My father-in-law took my place and without having a right he approved my daughter's wedding. Though I would have waited for my daughter and family to say to me: "Come father, be with us".'My wife called me and she told me.
The phrase "For the love of God-Muhammad-Ali" (Hakk-Muhammed-Ali aşkına) is common to several Alevi prayers.
For some, the linking of the three seems polytheistic and not in line with monotheistic Islamic teachings, but Alevis counter that such people do not understand the bāṭenī The Twelve Imams are part of another common Alevi belief.
The example of His light is like a niche within which there is a lamp, the lamp is encased in a glass, the glass is like a radiant planet, which is lit from a blessed olive tree that is neither of the east nor of the west, its oil nearly gives off light even if not touched by fire.
Light upon light, God guides to His light whom He pleases.
The Bektashi sect follow the teachings of their descendant —the 13th century Alevi saint Haji Bektash Veli.
Alevis are found primarily in Turkey among ethnic Turks and Kurds, Some of the differences that mark Alevis from mainstream Muslims are the use of cemevi halls rather than mosques; worship ceremonies that feature music and dancing, and where both women and men participate; non-observance of the five daily salat prayers and prostrations (they only bow twice in the presence of their spiritual leader), Ramadan, and the Hajj (considering true pilgrimage to be internal one).
Many teachings are based on an orally transmitted tradition, traditionally kept secret from outsiders (but now widely accessible).
The basis for Alevis' most distinctive beliefs is found in the Buyruks (compiled writings and dialogues of Sheikh Safi-ad-din Ardabili (eponym of the Safavi order), Ja'far al-Sadiq (the Sixth Imam), and other worthies).
A minority viewpoint is that of the Ishikists, who assert, "Alevi" was derived from "Alev" ("flame" in Turkish) in reference to fire which is extensively used in Alevi rituals.
