I have made quite a research on the song , Turkish sources say it was Composed by Misirli Udi Ibrahim Efendi ( Born in 1879 in Aleppo, his real name is Avram Levi , and he's a Jewish Ottoman. He's known as a great Turkish Classical Songs composer. He's known to have composed more thasn 500 songs, but only 56 can be proven to be his. He died in 1938 in Istanbul. He is known to be Eygptian because he lived in Eygpt most of his life.
