Summary/Abstract: The presence of Sufis in Herzegovinian sanjak was noted almost from the very inclusion of this province into the Ottoman Empire. Some of their members went further with military units, while the others stayed and involved into activities of the city community. Some were military members of citadel garrisons, some were mosque officials, while a considerable number of Sufis was involved in business matters, thus structuring material basis for their existence and existence of their families, and wider community as well.
