Who is Evas Didi?
Manisa Akısarlı Ayvaz Didi, one of the Khorasan saints who came to Bosnia and Herzegovina from Anatolia for guidance like Sari Saltuk, prayed for 40 days and 40 nights on the mountain in the city of Prusak (Akhısar), where there was more drought than five centuries ago and which hosts festivals today.
It is rumored that Aivaz Didi, who was worshiping to bring water to a region whose people suffered from famine and whose animals died of thirst, saw two rams bumping into each other in his sleep at night, and when he woke up he found the rams. The mountain splits, and the river runs loudly in front of him.
It is reported that the people of the region who heard about this miraculous incident became Muslims after the incident, as the region received water and the drought ended.
The festival, which was banned from 1947 in the former Yugoslavia under communism, was reorganized in 1990.
