Kamal Abdulla: Azerbaijan Retained Common Human Values And Multiculturalism

Culture A- A A+

For many centuries, since antiquity, classical literature of Azerbaijan has fully reflected an atmosphere of multiculturalism and tolerance in its entire spectrum.  The desire to embrace humanity as a complete assessment and as a mosaic with many jewels, a need to explore mental parallels uniting diverse ethnic nations, religions and people; is an attempt to bring different religions closer together by finding common grounds.  The literature of Azerbaijan provides an equally respectful attitude towards the sacred places of all religions, embraces morals that judge people not on their religious beliefs but on their personal qualities. According to Academician and national writer of Azerbaijan, Kamal Abdulla: the literature of Azerbaijan “is a call to compassion, mercy and empathy, and love as the highest and most important feeling, as a common principle of life uniting all people regardless of language and religion – all these and other values are reflected in our literature and describe better than anything its inner spirit as it soars in the ether.”

Prof. Dr. Kamal Abdulla, notes: “We can be so bold as to say that every exponent of our classical literature, with its centuries of history, not only held these values but also transmitted them through the prism of their worldview. These literary examples cherish a fine illustration of the atmosphere of multiculturalism and tolerance that reigned in Azerbaijani society in different historical eras.  They are an artistic ‘cardiogram’ of pictures of the real life of our historic past, which we can no longer observe for ourselves.” 

In fact, the literature of Azerbaijan embodies the love and religious tolerance; from the works of Nizami, who declared the idea of “love is a heavenly altar” to be the embodiment of his work, all the way to Javid, the renowned author of these verses: “My lord is beauty and love”.

Throughout history, Azerbaijan’s literature has carved the praises of love for the benefit of all humanity, without dividing it along racial, ethnic, linguistic or religious boundaries.  The Literature of Azerbaijan is soaked within the spirit of moral and artistic values; the Azerbaijani people have made a lavish contribution to the treasure trove of common human values. 

The concept of multiculturalism is further enriched by Abdulla Shaiq who once wrote: “we are all atoms of a single sun!” and Muhammad Hadi, the founder of progressive romanticism in Azerbaijan; set forth an inspiring challenge to mankind: “Oh, people, we are all brothers!”

Furthermore in the works of Huseyn Javid; a small girl talks about her love for all humanity.
