The Hidden World of Oghuznama
The aim of project is to restore the most important book of all times Oghuznama. As the facts points out, neither Christianity nor Zoroastrianism or even Islam were a dominat religions in the present day Azerbaijan. The majority of Oghuz population were adherent of Karaite Judaism and did pray in the direction of East (Mizrahi), especially along the Caspian Sea shore. The myth of Zoroastrianism in Azerbaijan have been predominately created during the Soviet era to hide the Khazarian (כוזרים) heritage of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
The current book has been expanded to include the Book of Proverbs (Atalar Sözü). Together the Book of Dede Qorqud and the Book of Proverbs make up The Holy Book of Oghuz. The more updated version of book with the full introduction in English will be available on 09.05.2022, and it can be purchased via Google Play (see link below).
All proceeds from the sales will help to continue the restoration process.
The Capture of Uruz Bey
Transition from Ghuz to Oghuz
The Book of Dede Qorqud is the most famous heroic dastan of the Oghuz, and it is made up of the twelve epic stories. The heroes are often portrayed as great warriors who fight on the path of the one true God – Tanri, against the invading villains who are referred to as infidels. The stories carry morals and values significant to the social lifestyle of the Oghuz peoples and their pre-Islamic beliefs. The book's mythic narrative is part of the cultural heritage of the peoples of Oghuz origin, mainly of Turkey, Azerbaijan, and Turkmenistan.
Although, the Oghuz State was made of 24 pronvinces, the stories take place in Azerbaijan. It evolves around two main groups – the Inner Oghuz (Aranli) and the Outter Oghuz (Daghli), who lived on two opposite sides of The Greater Caucasus Mountain Range.
The Book of Dede Qorqud, also known as Oghuznama, is available in two versions, one copy is kept at the Dresden State and University Library, and the other copy is in the Vatican Apostolic Library.

THE OGHUZ PRAYER
This is an actual prayer from the Book of Dede Qorqud to One and All Mighty Tanri (God):
Kimsə bilməz necəsən!
Çoq cahillər səni gögdə ara, yerdə istər.
Sən xud möminləriñ köñlündəsən.
Daim duran cabbar Tañrı
Ulu yollar üzərinə
İmarətlər yapayım səniñ içün.
Ac görsəm, doyurayım səniñçün,
Yalıncaq görsəm, donadayım səniñ içün!
