Makhtum Qoli is the greatest Turkmen poet who has used his poem and words to improve ethical, Gnostic and social thoughts. Poems of Makhtum Qoli are featured by rationalism; so he can be compared with Rudaki, Ferdowsi, Naser Khosrow, who were among the rationalist and great poets of Iran. For Makhtum Qoli, poem is ride and poet is its rider. A rider without thinking could not go anywhere, so what is important is thought. The normal dependencies of our life cannot touch and influence Makhtum Qoli’s poems; seeking for perfection and truth is the only tenet ha had tried to find. His works are full of wisdom, ethics and Gnostic.

    The great stance of this Turkmen poet has encouraged the great western scholars such as Evgeny Edvardovich Berthels, Alexander Chodzko, A. N. Samoilovich, Nikolai Tikhonov and Arminius Vámbéry to comment about his works.
