Martyr of the Motherland, world great grandfather of the Bektashi Sali Njazi Dede

Martyr of the Motherland, world great grandfather of the Bektashi Sali Njazi

On Flag Day, we commemorate the martyr of the Motherland, Sali Njazi Dede, on the day of his heroic fall in the line of duty for the protection of Albanian, Balkan and world Bektashism. It was the time when the National Renaissance was reviving the patriotic feeling, the Bektashi doctrine was finding more and more widespread support among the people. This is because of his belief in the Albanian and Balkan reality, but also because of the tolerant spirit he conveyed. For the young Sali Njazi, the influence of the teke of Starje, Leskovik, Qesaraka and Kreshovo, left deep traces, for the pure and real image of Bektashism. At the age of 8, he found himself in Istanbul, where he attended classes at Haxhi Bektash. Thanks to the Albanian spiritual heritage, he entered the Bektashian path full of kindness in 1897. He attracted the attention of Great Grandfather Haxhi Fejzi Dedei after surrendering as a dervish on the path of Hak, received the lessons of the Koran, the hadiths of the Prophet Muhammad and the keys of mystical knowledge. In 1908, Dede Fejziu charged Salih Njazi with the task of reconciliation, which he carried out with ingenuity, foresight and connection with the law, always characterized by a rich spiritual life, his worship of the Creator gave him results. Thus the Bektashian Grandfather Haxhi Fejzi Dedei, the high grandfather council, appoints Sali Njazi to the high leadership position, showing the Bektashian world special values ??of education, through which people with such spiritual traits were born and raised. The good name of Sali Njazi the Albanian, had in time crossed the borders of the empire. Thanks to various reforms and instructions to preserve Bektashian spiritual purity, being respected among the millions of believers in many countries of the Balkans, the Mediterranean and even Far Asia. When Mustafa Qemal Ataturk visited Haxhi Bektashi's teke, he received the moral and material support of Sali Njazi Babai and Xhemaladin Celebi for the liberation war. It was this grace in the office of the great grandfather of the world that protested to Qemal Ataturk, when the parliament was closed, and why the Bektashis had helped him in the war of 1923-1924 for the liberation of the country. World Grandfather Sali Njazi Dede, of Albanian origin from Starja e Kolonje, thought about transferring the Bektashian World Center to Albania, consulted his grandfather's advice and came to Albania on January 28, 1930. The light had been opened in Albania thanks to the historic decisions of the Lushnja Congress of who defended religious beliefs. The Bektashi World Patriarchate has an early history and today it is one of the four traditional religious communities in Albania that enjoys full authorship. With his tireless work, His Grace, Grandfather Sali Njazi, an Albanian tribe, was known as the Pope of all the Bektashinjvet of the world, he settled in Tirana as the Grandfather of Albania and the Great Head of this faith. It was his grace that held congresses, adopted structure and organized Bektashism. The Bektashi doctrine made Albanianism spread to other Balkan areas. Sali Njazi Dede's correspondence with many countries in the Balkans and the world solved problems of property, personnel and doctrine of Bektashism. Based on this doctrine, the position of the arch-grandfather was manifested in the Balkans, but especially in Albania, which kept open and increased the tekke day by day. Being an able leader, he was also a talented creator of religious literature, because he was a great patriot. His mind and hand did not sign the occupation of the country by Italy in 1939. He had a high sense of patriotism and raised Bektashism in Albania to a new historical dimension, enriching the Bektash tradition that continues today. With this attitude, he confirmed the saying of Haxhi Bektash Veliu that when the light goes out in the East, it has to be turned on in the West. When the Turkish Parliament ordered the closure of all mosques in the Ottoman Empire, Sali Njazi Dedei looked back at his homeland, Albania. Of course, he knew very well that Bektashism had been born and raised in Albanian lands for centuries, so the transfer of the world center of this belief was seen as a white omen for Albanians, regardless of what religion they belonged to. There are several correspondences between him and the Albanian Kingdom in 1929, which highlight not only the desire of this cleric to settle in Albania, but also King Zog's disinterested guarantees for the necessary help. This undoubtedly made Sali Njazi Dede, consulting with the ancestral councils in different countries, with the Albanian Kingdom, take the decision to move the Bektashi world center to Tirana. This major act stands full of dignity among the various solutions of the Albanians, throughout the history of Bektashism in Albania, the Balkans and in the world. Sali Njazi Dede came to Albania with the clear idea of ??increasing the Bektashi faith, precisely in the southwest of Christian Europe. The prominent cleric preached the traditional spirit of the Bektashi faith and the simple believers. King Zog, respecting the will of the Bektash clerics, in March 1930 appointed Sali Njazi Dedena, World Grandfather of the Bektash, by a special decree. Sali Njazi Dede was put in charge of difficult tasks for the best possible organization of the faith, especially in Albanian lands. He managed to cultivate in every believer that his heart beats with great love for the motherland. With religious and intellectual care, he prepared Bektashian congresses and statutes, as a pious cleric, he was the first in the concrete implementation of Bektashian customary codes. Everywhere in the doctrines he displayed emblematic wisdom and simplicity, preserved the tradition within the faith, inculcated independence of ideas and action, educated the seat of patriotism, as well as natural resentment towards the government. For all these patriotic values, Sali Njazi Deden was killed by the enemy on November 28, 1941. thinking that it would frighten the entire army of Bektashi clerics. Sali Njazi Dedej was martyred for carrying out his holy mission. All clerics have shown patriotism and spiritual chastity as much as their myrshid, who fell butchered, disagreeing with the conqueror, with tyrannies and ideas that killed human freedom. The emblematic figure of Sali Njazi Dedei was also honored in the issuance of the Albanian stamp in 2001. He received the title "Martyr of the Motherland" decision no. 505, dated 20.12.2011, of the Central Commission on the Status of the Martyr of the Motherland, was awarded by the Presidency with the "Order of the First Class" in 1993 and the "Honour of the Nation" in 2019. These and other awards honor only the Bektashi faith, but all of Albania and the world. This enlightened figure of the cleric and martyr will forever remain a complex figure, which will also remain an excellent example of dignity, pride, kindness and patriotism. Sali Njazi Dede was and remains the creator and builder of the magnificent building of Bektashism, he was the model of the cleric with great knowledge, wisdom and tolerance. He taught us the way, so we must walk...
