Abstract

In this study, which examines the religious life of the Macedonian Turks, we have tried to portray the beliefs of the people who lived here by observing the practices in different places of visit. Meanwhile, taking into account the nature of their visit, efforts were made to determine their religious, cultural and local characteristics.
As a matter of fact, Macedonia, which is the subject of study when is being worked on, the history of the Ottomans, which caused the emergence of history and especially the beliefs, or the fact that the cults were common due to the widespread sectarianism and the influences of these rich cultures in the eyes of the Ottoman Empire. In other words, we tried to illuminate a part of our ancestry's culture and its effects.
Besides the beliefs and place in our religion, we have dealt with the fact that many beliefs change in time, that is, religion does not approve, characteristics of beliefs, emergence and place in our religion.
In the last part, we tried to contribute to the enlightenment of beliefs common to Muslims in Macedonia by investigating the different places of visit in Macedonia, the rituals practiced in these regions, and the myths related to these places.
