Noteworthy, the first collection of Suleyman Rustam's poems "From Sadness to Joy" was written by the poet in 1927. In 1939-1940's, he wrote "Qachaq Nebi" novel. Main heroes of the novel are Qachaq Nebi - a famous leader of the national movement of the 19th century and Hejer - his brave wife and fellow fighter.

His patriotic poems ("A day will come", "To the sons of Azerbaijan", "Old man's answer") written during the Great Patriotic War were dedicated to bravery of the people, their unshakeable belief and victory over the enemy.
