Is faith and humanity in the Kazakh language a concept? How does the Kazakh understand these words… In the Kazakh language, the word moral means humanity. This meaning of morality stems from the fact that the Kazakhs are Muslims. The word humanity comes from faith.


Iman is the light in the heart, and morality is its form. Humanity is the artistic behavior of a person who believes in Allah. Not every Muslim is a virtuous person. Since some unbelievers are not unbelievers, it is not necessary that every Muslim possess humane or artistic qualities. It is of great importance when our ancestors describe the Kazakh concept of humanity with the word faith. Because between humanity and faith is a big difference. Humanity is a human trait that all people can have.

Faith is kindness born of the love of the Creator of the world Iman to his Great Friend. That is, in every faith there is humanity, but it is unlikely that in every humanity there is faith. Therefore, in Kazakhstan, humanity is a very significant concept, which has a broader philosophical thinking. Our ancestors called the Kazakh iman a pillar of their personality and the precious truth of their conscience. That is why our ancestors preferred more soulfulness than sincere humanity. The words of our ancestors testify to this: my wealth is a sacrifice for my soul, my soul is a sacrifice for my conscience.

Here, our ancestors by the word “conscience” mean – faith. From this came the legend: “He who has a conscience, that is faith.” They called a man who abandoned his conscience a traitor to his faith, and a man who did not have a conscience at all was called an unbeliever. There are many such phrases in the Kazakh language. This is a sign that our ancestors were sincerely Muslim believers. That is, the Kazakhs defined the concept of good as a word of faith, and the word evil was defined by a word without faith. Although it is true that our ancestors worshiped spirits, mausoleums of saints, all these tales are slander.

There is respect for perfumes, but no worship. Some of today’s generation worship perfume, but it’s their fault. This is what comes from religion. Otherwise, our ancestors always showed loyalty to their Great Friend. Of course, born Kazakh child was proclaimed in his own name, after death they calmed the soul of the deceased, trying to obey the decree of the Great Creator. In the Qur’an, this Great Friend says: “Keep your promises that you gave me, and I will fulfill my duties. And fear only me ”(Bakara). So, our ancestors lived freely in the vast expanses of the steppe, trying to fulfill this promise to the Great Friend, worshiping the One Creator and not worshiping any other creatures.

Not afraid of other creators, only this person who worships Allah and is afraid of him. And he who is not afraid of God will certainly bow to other creators. It’s true. The creator created protection for himself when he created man. This is evidenced by the phrases in the Kazakh language “there is no faith left”, “faith left him”, “faith shuddered” as they said about those who were afraid inappropriately. That is, “if you are afraid, you must be afraid of one God, and a strong fear of others is not characteristic of a believer.”


Kazakh studied with faith and morality from the Prophet. The Prophet says that the importance of morality in the world states: “I was sent to complement the most beautiful character.” This is why the Prophet was the first moral example. He was an incomparable soul in morality and artistic behavior.

Once he said: “My Lord raised me, and he was raised me very extraordinary.” In fact, the main purpose of Almighty Allah in creating man is faith and morality. Therefore, one must believe in Allah the Great and be like him. The similarity of Allah with the nature of humanity on earth is the source of this morality. The Prophet says: “Follow the example of Allah.”

The foundation of this exemplary school is the Qur’an. Allah Almighty sent down the Qur’an so that people could become believers and gain a complete human being. Since the Prophet is the enlightener of this book, and is the most exemplary in it. When asked about his character by Aisha Hazret, she replies: “His character is the Qur’an.” In fact, Muhammad Hazret (pbuh) in the book of the Prophet says: “You are from very unusual characters.” This is humanism. Humanism is humanity, virtue. The Qur’an says: “For those who are humane and do good, perform the prayers as they should, give the zyaket wait for reward next to their Lord” (Bakara, 2 \ 277). The good deeds in this verse are humanism. To obey God means to believe, and to turn to the Great Friend by doing good is humanism. These are the basics of religion. Kazakh, who paid special attention to this faith and humanism, embodied these two concepts in his life. “What is the opinion of man, such is his intention.” Our ancestors said: “If a person is surrounded by faith, then faith falls on the scales, faith breaks on the surface, let faith be a friend”, etc. such phrases related to faith have always been a sign of deep faith.
