Summary/Abstract: In this paper we have sought to trace Sufi thought in the poetry of the last diwan poet writing in Turkish, Arif Hikmet-beg Stočević-Rizvanbegović. We see evidence that he was a sincere and enthusiastic Sufi in his lyrical Sufi poems, in which the motive is, as a rule, concealed. His complex thought, exceptional poetic gift and powerful expression demonstrate that both in his poetry and his poetic life, Arif Hikmet-beg followed the Islamic tradition, remaining true to it to the end of his days. This will soon be further evidenced by a selection of Hikmet’s poetry, which will be published in book form.
