Dervishes in Egypt. The Mevlevi are a Sufi order founded in 1273 by the followers of Jalal al-Din Muhammad Rumi after his death. The centre of the order was at Konya in present day Turkey, where Rumi is buried. They are commonly known as the Whirling Dervishes due to their practice of whirling as a form of dhikr (remembrance of Allah). During the Ottoman period, the Mevlevi spread into in the Balkans, Syria and Egypt.
