This paper aims at exploring the rhythmic patterns and cycles (usul) as presented in Risala-i Musiki by Abdurrahman Nuraddin al-Jami who was also known as Molla Jami. In this context his contribution to this subject and his situation in the XVth century musical background were attempted to be explained. It seems that Jami, generally, described the elements of the theoretical system and the structure of rhythmic patterns of the past. With regard to the rhythmic patterns in his book he followed Abdulkadir Maragi and did not make any contribution to this subject. Concerning the musical scales al-Jami attempted to invent some new musical scales but he didn't give place to the rhythmic patterns of al-Maragi.
