Outbreaks are the most important diseases that threaten human beings. When epidemic diseases surround the world, thousands of people are removed from life and thousands of values are separated from life at an early age. In this context, in 1848, in a worldwide epidemic that also spread to Amasya, a great sufi and scholar named İsmail Şirvani died. In the cholera epidemic this year, infectious diseases such as typhoid and typhus have also increased. Shirvani also passed away from typhoid, the other name of which is blackberry. İsmail Siraceddin Shirvani, who died in the outbreak of Amasya in 1848, is one of the leading Nakşi-Halidi scholars of the period.He created a large circle of knowledge around this personality born in Azerbaijan; It led to the upbringing of scholars and poets. There were poets who expressed their good feelings about him before and after his death in the epidemic.The most important of these is Mir Hamza Nigari. Shirvani is his sheikh, teacher and source of inspiration. Nigari expressed this love in couplets in many places in his divan.The poet named Sebati, raised by Nigari, understood his value enough to write poems to him, even though he did not see İsmail Shirvani. Sebati was also a grave keeper to Şirvani.Nearly a hundred years later, a poet enthusiast named Talibi, who came from Azerbaijan and settled in Zile, afflicted him with love. In our study, the poems written by these three poets about the scholar, sufi, Azerbaijani lover and heart man Sheikh Siraceddin Shirvani, who were the martyrs of Taun, were brought together.
