The event “Nizamiyya madrasa and its Azerbaijani representatives” was held

On the 15th of May the event “Nizamiyya madrasa and its Azerbaijani representatives” within the framework of the project “Our Language and Morality” was held at Azerbaijan University of Languages (AUL).
At the event, director of the Institute of Folklore, head of the department of Azerbaijani literature of the university, academician Mukhtar Imanov informed about the Nizamiyya madrasa (religious school of Muslims). It was noted that, Nizamiyya madrasa was founded in the era of the Great Seljuks and its name is connected with the name of Vizier Nizammulk. Madrasa Baghdad Nizamiyya is considered the first university of the middle Ages. After the opening of the Nizamiyya madrasa, Khatib Tabrizi began teaching philology here and headed a well-known library functioning in a madrasa. In the madrasas in addition to the religious sciences the secular science was also taught.

Later the director of ANAS Institute of Linguistics, academician Mohsun Nagisoylu noted that, that topic connected with the Islamic culture was relevant. He mentioned that, along with the Persians and Arabs, the Turks also played a great role in the emergence of Islamic culture.
Correspondent member of ANAS, Konul Bunyadzade spoke about the establishment of the Nizamiyya madrasa. Noting that, the Islamic religion calls for science, K. Bunyadzade brought to the attention that the basis of these madrasas is education.
At the event discussions on the topic were held.
