ABSTRACT
There have been some mistakes and contradictory information in the documents which deal with Old Turkish Literature. Some of them are among the works which can be regarded as the basic documents of this field. It is not true to accept them as the mistakes and contradictions only in information. Because these mistakes and contradictions cause great trouble in the transcription and explanation of texts. Sufism, one of the important concepts which Old Turkish Literature is based on, is the field in which such errors and contradictions take place mostly. Especially the concepts of monoteism, love of man, divine love and human love are much more confused with the other terms and concepts. This study consists of the opinions mentioned above.
