Sefer Dal Efendi al-Jerrahi al-Halveti, r.a., was born in the year 1929 and he passed into the Realm of Beauty in the year 1998. He succeeded Muzaffer Efendi, r.a., as Grand Sheikh of the Order. He continued the expansion of Sufism, and of our Order throughout Europe and the American continent (North and South America).
He also authored many illahis (poems set to music), as well as being responsible for the gathering, compiling and revival of thousands of illahis that were in existence but somewhat disorganized or forgotten until that time.
He was an extraordinary man, loved by everyone; his main character trait was a tremendous sweet love for everyone that came in contact with him.
