Unlike his grandfather, he studied at Madrassas and learned Arabic as well as several other traditional Islamic Sciences. He finished his grandfather's "Stories of Prophets" (Kissas-ul Embiya). However he lost the only manuscript of the book during the World War I.

He became the Master of his grandfather's Sufi Order after the War and held the position until his death. He received many visitors from the neighboring cities like Gumushane and Erzincan.

He taught his pupils the Sufi way of abstaining from the evil of worldliness. The themes of his poems shows many similarities with other Anatolian mystics like Yunus Emre.

His poems were published by his son Ahmet Battal under the title of "Mystical Poems of Aglar Baba" (Ebyat-i Aglar Baba).
