The article is written in tribute to the memory of a colleague who died prematurely, a talented scientist-orientalist Hasankhan Mirzamagomedovich Mirzamagomedov. Special attention is paid to his scientific works and teaching activities. G. M. Mirzamagomedov left behind unique scientific research devoted to the most complex issues of critical study of Arabic historical documents. He developed the concept of studying epistolary documents, introduced a large number of written sources in Arabic, which contributed to the illumination of dark spots in the history of Dagestan in the XVIII-early XIX centuries. G. M. Mirzamagomedov devoted many years of his life to teaching at Dagestan state University, taught classes in the Arabic language and historical disciplines, and trained a large number of Arab specialists. In addition to his unique scientific works, he published educational manuals for students of Oriental studies. The article notes the demand for the works of G. M. Mirzamagomedov and the need for their publication.
