Works of Hadj Nemat


Works > Kouch-e Tarikh (or Kouch-e Haqqiqat)


Written in 1910, The March of History (or The March of Truth) is comprised of 341 pages and some 9265 verses of Kurdish poetry. Similar to The Book of the Kings of Truth, the main theme of the book revolves around the manifestation of theophanies from the beginning of creation until the time of the book's composition in 1910. In accordance with his own distinctive style, Hadj Nemat addresses other topics as well so that the reader can have a better overview and understanding of the subject matter. To describe the successive manifestation of theophanies in the material world, he begins with an account of creation and how God first created and instructed Gabriel before creating the other archangels and setting the universe into motion. The reader also learns about the creation of human beings and their expulsion from heaven, as well as the Jan and Bani-Jan, beings that inhabited the earth prior to humans, including the story of Satan (Iblis) and his banishment. He then discusses the propagation of the human race and consequently the successive manifestations of good and evil from the beginning of time to the book's writing.

In general, alongside the main thesis in each of his works, Hadj Nemat also addresses five subjects: principles, counsel, traditions, prophecies, and religion. In this book, he likewise discusses historic and religious events, the story of creation, biographical accounts of him and his children, allusions to the new dynasty among the Ahl-e Haqq, the original covenant, recommendations and counsel on the observance of religion and divine worship, avoidance of worldly desires and temptations, theophanies, and several predictions. He also notes that his writings are based on what he has heard from the spiritual world, not on academic studies.

In addition to the foregoing, he also introduces Forqan ol-Akhbar [Proof of the Tradition], about which he states that everything that is necessary concerning the past and the future, the original covenant, good and evil, principles and rituals of the truth, and wholes and parts is contained therein as the ultimate proof of religion and its content will never become dated.
