In 2013, he became a licensed gestalt therapist at the Psychological Department of the Moscow Institute of Positive Technologies and Consulting.
Rovshan's creative activity began during his school years. In the 1990s, while keenly interested in sports and practicing various martial arts and acrobatics, he wrote his first book. In this text, which was later lost, he discusses the theory and philosophy of sports and the life stories of the most admirable athletes. He also describes a new universal sport that is a synthesis of various techniques. Even at that tender age, he felt a strong desire to write and share his knowledge with others.
While studying at the university, he wrote his first articles on the influence of social factors on the psychological development of adolescents and examined arguments for and against the theory of evolution.
In 2010, his first book, The Veil of Light and Darkness, was published. Here, he describes the factors of moral and personal development and decline, the properties of the soul and the veils of light and darkness within it.
In 2011, Rovshan started translating one of Avicenna's final books, Remarks and Admonitions (Kitab al-isharat wa al-tanbihat), which impressed both the East and the West. In parallel with the semantic translation of the book, Rovshan Abdullaev provided profound explanations of Avicenna's metaphysics and logic. This work was published as two books: Contemplation and On the Levels of the Mystics.
In 2012, he went on to translate the work of another famous philosopher-scientist – Muhammad Husayn Tabataba'i – the author of a multi-volume interpretation of Al-Mizan and the treatise Man. The translation and interpretation of this treatise was published in three parts.
In the same year, Rovshan Abdullaev translated a book that is considered the first manuscript in the Islamic world. Hence, it is usually called simply The First Book. It is concerned with the historical events and political backgrounds at the initial stage of the formation of an Islamic society.
A new stage in Rovshan's creative activity was characterized by a psychological-motivational approach. In his five subsequent works, Burn the Bridges behind You, Every Human a Ruler, Life Goes on no Matter What, Rising Against All and Fears, the author turns to Western and Eastern psychology, providing new motivational levers on the material and spiritual path of personal development. These works create a synthesis of his psychological and theological views.

These books teach to appreciate reality, to perceive difficulties fearlessly and to solve them, to endure the hardships of fate, to respect human moral values, to show friendliness and tolerance to others, regardless of their racial, religious or national affiliation, and most importantly – to love truly and deeply.
In 2018, a book with the bewitching title Abaddon made its debut. This intellectual psychological detective story was sold out in just 3 hours. The publisher had to release the second edition of the book in a matter of days.
