It should be noted that among the members of the Sufi currents and their fans were well-known poets.
As the mevlanizm created by Lalaleddin Rumi in(1207-1273) XIII century, the principles of Naqshbandism founded in the XIV century Burhanaddinom Muhammad al-Bukhari (1327-1389), widely spread among the Turkic peoples, including in Azerbaijan.

In the XIII-XIV centuries Azerbaijan poetry, along with an art component, was characterized as socio-political context. Issues of morality and Philosophical reflections occupied the main place in the writings of Mahmud Shabustari (1287-1320) and Ahvadi Maragai (1274-1388).
The main idea of  a book of famous Azerbaijani scientist Sheikh Mahmoud Shabustari named Sirr Gulsheni, is pantheistic explanation of the unity of being. Thinker in his study examines the structure of being in the context of the verses of the Qur\'an. He is comparing the verses of the Koran and the level of being, raises first sura to the universal mind, surah Light - the universal desire, Sura Arche - heaven surah Kursi - heaven of stars, surah Fatiha - the rest of the seven heavens. Along with this, the scientist said in revealing verses four elements (earth, water, air and fire) and the inability to transfer verses by type of nature - minerals, flora and fauna. The emergence of human desire at the end of the formation being due to the sura of the Koran (The Man (En-Nas).
Mahmoud Shabustari equates to a human desire to universal desire and relates it to the entire universe.
Mahmud Shabustari as a representative of Sufism, connects the external manifestations of knowledge of being with the Shariah, and the knowledge of its internal manifestations with reality. Therefore, in order to know the reality, it is necessary to overcome the path between the Shariah and reality.
Sheikh Maragai taught by the Sufi poet Abugamida Avhadaddina (Kirmani 1236) was present in the classroom Sadraddin Konavi.
