One of Aldülhamid Sultan’s personal doctors, Dr. Ferik Ahmed Pasha had important roles in different wars. He spent many years serving his country in wars and consequently did not get married. Sultan Abdulhamid was sad about this situation, and arranged the marriage of Dr. Ahmed Pasha with the Khan of Dagestan oldest daughter. From this marriage, Dr. Ahmed Pasha had 3 children. His oldest son, lieutenant commander Dr. Mustafa Hasib became a doctor, just like his father.
Lieutenant Commander Mustafa Hasib Efendi
Starting with the Balkan Wars, supporting Sultan Abdulhamid and Enver Pasha, Mustafa Hasib joined the resistance against Italians with Şeyh Sunnusi in Tobruk and Derne. He joined First World War and the War of Galipoli. He was a real patriot and nationalist.
Dr. Ferik Ahmed Paşa’s wife and lieutenant commander Mustafa Hasib Efendi’s mother, the Princess from Dagestan spent the last years of her life with her family in this villa.
In Word War I, when allies faced difficulty In the Hungarian-Austrian-Galichya fronts, reinforced army corps were sent to help. After the truce, the soldiers returned to Istanbul in very dire conditions and the lower ranked soldiers of this army brought a typhus epidemic with them.
As the Chief of Medical Staff of the Gureba Hospital, Dr. Mustafa Hasib was personally involved with the treatment of these soldiers who had typhus. Younger doctors did not want to enter the wards where sick soldiers were treated. With his usual patriotism, Dr. Hasib without hesitation entered the wards and with devotion started treating the soldiers. Inevitably, he contacted typhus and died at a young age.
Since Dr. Ferik Ahmet Pasha, the villa changed ownership between members of the same family, and has been preserved in the same family’s ownership.
