In The Torch (a collection of poems, 1932) and the poems Vengeance (1932) and The Blacksmith Dzhura (1933), he developed themes relevant to contemporary life and called upon his readers to oppose the old order. His first novel, Sacred Blood (1943), described the life of the Uzbek people during World War I. He was widely acclaimed for his historical-biographical novel Navoi (1945; State Prize of the USSR, 1946). During World War II he wrote the patriotic poems “To the Brave Cavalrymen,” “Victory Is Ours,” “Death to the Enemy,” “Of My Native Land,” and others.

The life of the workers in Pakistan and their struggle for peace and democracy is treated in the poems Impressions of Pakistan (1950), Zafarand Zakhra (1951), and Lovers of Justice (1954) and in the novella In Search of Light (1956). The novel The Sun Will Not Dim (1958) deals with the heroism of the Soviet soldiers during World War II; the novella Childhood (1962, Khamza State Prize of the Uzbek SSR) is autobiographical. The novel The Great Road (1967) is about socialist revolution. Aibek’s translations into Uzbek include Eugene Onegin by A. S. Pushkin, Faust by J. W. Goethe, Masquerade by M. Iu. Lermontov, and works by M. Gorky and V. G. Belinskii. He was awarded two Orders of Lenin, four other orders, and a medal.
