Gafarov was a very talented composer who excelled in all genres, but he didn't send his problems to the FIDE Album, which explains why he gained no title. Odette Vollenweider wrote about Gafarov in the Spring/Summer 2010 edition of Mat Plus Review.
We have inserted a sample of his problems to illustrate his talent:
