Yusuf Nabi from Urfa is one of the important poets of 17th century Classical Turkish Literature. He is the pioneer of the hikemi style which is a leading literary school of 17th century and examples of which is seen from an earlier period in the field of Iranian literature. Within tent to leave a legacy to his son Abu'l-Hayr, the Poet wrote one of his important work "Hayri-name" or "Hayriyye" with his common name. The work of his was written in the style of pend-name, a style belonging to Ottoman field Classical Turkish Literature. However, his work was far from being understood in terms of content, style and language by Abu'l-Hayr who was only eight years old at the time. Due to being of a certain age, the Poet feared that he would be unable to guide his son in related matters, so he wanted to leave written advice for him as inheritance. Written to provide guidance and teach manners, the work contains some topics related to political, social, economic and cultural areas. The work, which Nabi formed according to mesnevi verse style, contained right at the beginning of it a detailed explanation in the issue of the Conditions of Islam. The Conditions of Islam are essential for each member in a Muslim society to learn and counted as the basis of Islamic religion. In this article, we aim to reveal the views of Nabi, who mentions in his work about the training of young Muslim men about the conditions of Islam.
