Especially with the acceptance of Islam by the Turks as a mass a great number of texts written in the Arabic alphabet and translated into Turkish are just one indication of this civilized progress. Historical texts constitute a wide range of titles in terms of variety of subjects, especially religion. Within this variety, one of the subjects that attracted the attention of researchers and readers is the dress texts that make some explanations, comments and descriptions about the physical characteristics of the human and the character structure.

Parallelism is a set of words which are often mentioned in the studies on poetry, and which are similar or recall each other in verse texts as well as in prose texts in terms of structure and meaning that the authors frequently prefer.
