The classical literary, legendary, and historical texts in the handwriting collections belonging to the Alevi Bektashi tradition are the firsthand sources of information about the thought systems, historical stages and the rituals of Anatolian Alevism and the Bektashi order. According to these works, Fourteen Masoomen, who have an important place in the Anatolian Alevism and Bektashi traditions, are the fourteen individuals who came from the line of Hazrat Ali and Hazrat Fat?ma and have been accepted as innocent and pure, because they have been martyred before reaching adulthood. In Imamiyah, the fourteen innocents include the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.v.), Hazrat Fat?ma, and the twelve commanders of Imamiyah In this study, we will evaluate this subject in the AleviBektashi Literature through the classical text registered in the National Library of Letters Collection A461. We will also add the original text to the transliteration.
