Mustafa Musleh al-Din, known as Nur al-Din Zadeh, was considered one of the most important scholars of Suleiman The Magnificent’s era in the Ottoman Empire. Along with his great influence on Ottoman bureaucracy at its apogee, including Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, he was also the sheikh of leading scholars and knowledgeable people such as Aziz Mahmud Hudayî al-Uskudarî and Ahmad al-Sharnubi. Nur El-Din Zadeh dealt with the issue of al-Mi’raj in detail from all its aspects. In his analysis of the subject, we can notice the prevailing opinion of the political and scientific summit of the Ottoman capital and the influence of the moderate approach on the scientific community. It can also be concluded the preference for the opinion of the Prophet’s Al al Bayt. Nur al-Din Zadeh became famous among the Ottoman scholars by his work ‘Risalah’.
