Muzaffer Ozak (1916 - February 12, 1985) was one of the head sheikhs of the Halveti-Jerrahi order of Dervishes, a traditional muslim Sufi order (tarika) from Istanbul (Turkey). In western countries he is well known because of his visits to Europe and the United States of America where he celebrated public dhikrs (Remembrance of God; in Turkish "zikrullah") with his dervishes. He is also well known in Turkey for his "ilahis," religious Sufi hymns. Ozak also ran a bookstore in the Sahaflar Çarşısı in Istanbul. Tosun Bayrak in North America and Tugrul Inancer in Turkey are among his most prominent disciples and successors.
