Mecelle is the first civil code of the Islam world. The committee that prepares the codes relied on the respected sources of the Hanefi sect. However, there isn’t either any explicit information on the identity of these sources supposedly used in the text or any citations to these books in the studies done by the committee members. Mesut Efendi who was the Mufti of Kayseri province investigates the reference sources in the Mecelle in his book titled as Mir’ât-ı Mecelle. Regarding one hundred and fifty sources listed in Mir’ât-ı Mecelle, this article aims to describe how extensively these sources used in the Mecelle and also identify the authors of these references.
