    Yes you can.

    When nouns are used as "yuklem" (predicate?), we may or may not add that suffix.

    Bu benim en sevdigim kitap = Bu benim en sevdigim kitaptır.
    Benim diktigim agac bu agac = Benim diktigim agac bu agactır.

    It's not wrong.

    We can use both versions in Turkish.

    In daily language it's preferred to use without suffix. The form with suffix is more for generalization.
