Poet (B. 1785, İstanbul - D. 1829, Sivas). He received madrasah (Muslim theological school) education. He became professor of theology when he was 12 years old. He was protected by Halet Efendi, and was appointed to the office of Galata Judge (1820). When Halet Efendi was exiled, he was also exiled to Keşan (1822). He narrated his exile to Keşan and his experiences there in his work called Mihnetkeşan (1822). He was forgiven and appointed to the offices of Mecca Judge (1825) and Haremeyn Inspector (1827). He was exiled to Sivas because he had sent a motion stating that he was against Russian War to Sultan II. Mahmud. When it was understood that he was right, an edict was prepared stating that he was forgiven and sent to Sivas, but İzzet Molla died before receiving this news. His bones were brought to İstanbul in 1916 and buried there.

He had joined to the sect of Mevlevi dervishes by abiding to Nasır Dede, one of the sheikhs of Yenikapı Whirling Dervishes Hall. He was considered the last master of Divan* poetry with his mastery in the poems he collected in two Divan*s. He wrote his work called Gülşen-i Aşk (1948) which is a mystic literature mesnevi* as opposition Hüsn-ü Aşk of  Şeyh Galip. He also has works such as Bahar-ı Efkâr (1839) and Hâzân-ı Asâr (1841).
