Sezai Kurtaran, who was the active leader of civil resistance against the French occupation forces and Armenian military forces in Maraş during the Turkish War of Independence. The meeting of Galip Kuşçuoğlu with his Sheikh Hacı Mustafa Yardımedici is very interesting. As Mr. Kuşçuoğlu narrates, this meeting occurred after a period of yearning and waiting for his unknown spiritual guide (Murshid).

“ The desire to search the truth, has occupied my life since my childhood. I could not apprehend some experiences that I had. They were incredible and unreasonable. These experiences directed me to tasawwuf. At the beginning I could not accept the necessity of a spiritual guide, because these experiences were incredible and immeasurable. But later on, I perceived the necessity of a guide in spiritual realm, just as it is necessary to be under control of a master in worldly crafts. Because I could not get anywhere... I personally experienced the impossibility of reaching to God out of His designation. Subsequently, I especially prayed God to make me meet my spiritual guide. ”
