The director of the Scientific Center for the Civilization of Eastern States of the Humanitarian Institute of Khujand State University of Tajikistan named after B. Gafurov, Zamira Gaforova noted that “Bayram Khan's skill in using artistic means, figuratively seeing and reflecting the surrounding reality confirms the value of the poet's work as an important source for studying poetics, rhetoric, and medieval literature. Therefore, we consider it appropriate to study in detail not only the life and work of Bayram khan in literature classes, but also the artistic features of his work”.
