Özet

As it is known, Seljuks belong to "Hanafi madhab" that is from Sunnite schools. Before Maturidiyya Sect didn't occured, an important part of Hanafis adopted Mutazilite sect's wiev. That Hanefi is "rey school" played an important role in this regard. According to the information sources of the period, especially Mu'tazilites in Khwarezm region, at the same time belong to the Hanafis. For this reason, especially in region of Khwarezm, in regions of Khorasan and Transoxiana many Hanafi-Mutezilite scholars which has escaped in front of the Mongol invasion have came to Anatolia. In addition, some Seljuk sultans belong to both Hanefi and Mu'tazila. Thus in Anatolia Mu'tazila school emerged. However, for various reasons this school can't show himself in Anatolia.
