Coffee entered the Islamic world for the first time in the 15 th century. Since then it has been widely used in Yemen and especially in the Derwish order. It has reached from Southern Arabia to Syria, Iran and Anatolia through Egypt. It has also been the subject matter of outstanding discussion among the jurists of the Islamic geography especially about its being helal or haram. This study focuses on the fiqhi and literary adventure of coffee in the period when it is firstly introduced to the Ä°slamic world.
