It is an honor for us to celebrate the great poet and writer Nizami Ganjavi’s literary work today. As a heritage library, we are proud to feature his work and manuscripts in our collections and showcase some of the rare manuscripts that we have,” Al Kawari said.

We believe today’s session will enrich and empower our communities with literary and historical knowledge, which played an integral role in the development of the Arab and Islamic population.

His work continues to unite people, nations and cultures across borders. I am thankful for this opportunity to celebrate 880 years of Nizami Ganjavi at Qatar National Library and hope to continue strengthening our joint efforts in the areas of literature and poetry in the coming years,” Elnur Aliyev said.
