Allâme Şeyhî Efendi, who is introduced in this article, is an important person from the point of view of his both poet ship, and being a scholar in the Ottoman society in the 17th. Century. His scholar side appears as a teacher, qadi and naqîbüleşrâf with several books which he wrote at some matters of fiqh. He also wrote a müretteb (tidy, orderly) divan and a sâkînâme, in which its mystical side was reflected as a poet. The subjects of his qasidas is the laud of some padishahs, two sheikhulislams and vizier Muezzinzâde Ahmed Pasha with the description of his journey to hadj and Jerusalem where he worked as a qadi (chief judge). His qasida, the text given in this work, has a crucial importance considering the prohibition of smoking tobacco that was a disputatious matter during the reign... of Murad IV.Despite his eminence mentioned above, we cannot find any research done on neither on Allâme Şeyhî nor his works apart from some biographical information. In this article, I examined why he has not been the subject of a research so far, and reached the conclusion that, the mistakes committed in the process of identifying the works and names of the mahlasdaş (poets who bears the same pen name) poets and their inferiority complex about other poets explain the situation as we experience in the case of Allame Şeyhi.
