Hattat was extremely sensitive about the problems of society; he wrote mostly on religion and love and also about politics and his religious poems were welcomed respectfully in Islamic ceremonies. The effect of another Turkmen Poet Mehmet Sadık’s can be seen on his poems and his natural imitations in love poems, his way of expressing his ideas clearly reminds us Karacaoğlan. He was telling that he wrote his poems for public and with nationalist feelings. Above his poet identity, Mehmet Zeki Hattat was an educator.
