Osman had been a frequent guest of Edebali. Edebali became Osman's mentor and eventually girt him with a ghazi sword. In an often mentioned account, Osman, while at Edebali's dergah, dreamed of the crescent moon coming out of Edebali's chest and entering his own. This dream was to lead to the establishment of the Ottoman State. Edebali's daughter Rabia Bala was married to Osman I in 1289. Sheikh Edebali died in his 120th year in 1320

ERTUGRUL GHAZI was the father of Osman I who was the founder of Ottaman Empire. According to Ottoman tradition, Ertugrul was the son of Suleyman Shah, the leader of the of Oghuz Turks, who fled from western Central Asia to anatolia to escape the Mongol conquest but he may instead have been the son of Gunduz Alp According to this legend, after the death of his father, Ertugrul and his followers entered the service of the Sultanate Of Rum, for which he was rewarded with dominion over the town of Sögüt on the frontier with the Byzantine Empire. This set off the chain of events that would ultimately lead to the founting of Ottoman Empire.
