Explanation:
This would be a common transcription of the original Arabic into English. It seems the meaning is not quite the same though as in your example above, but I can't see that it would be anything other than this word. I have done a fair bit of translation of Bosniac theological texts (though I am not an expert in Islamic matters!) and there are often slightly divergent usages when compared to the source Turkish (Arabic), so maybe this is such a case...
