Constitutional Revolution changed the tradition toward the presence of the general public in power affairs and political battles. Therefore, the level of people’s understanding of the Constitutional concept is significant for understanding various aspects of the Constitutional Revolution. In this study, the proceed of the virtual evolution of the Constitution among the general public and inferiors has been investigated in Azerbaijan in the Constitution era using original and authentic references based on the content analysis method. The main question is what conception of Constitution existed among the general public of Azerbaijan. Due to the unfamiliarity of Iran society with the Constitution, this concept was strange to the majority of people, and there was no clear illustration of its nature and contents. For this reason, the majority influenced by constitutional activists perceived the Constitution based on their needs and not its real nature. They found it linked to the social welfare, comfort, justice, and the end of the cruelty of government organizations (agencies). The general public wanted to improve their economic and social conditions and thought they could achieve it via establishing a Constitutional government. The point is that this lexicon became equivalent to seeking justice and law because there was hope for passing law for better conditions.
