The district borders the districts of Khojavend, Aghjabadi, Beylagan, Jabrayil, and the Ardabil Province of Iran. Its capital is Fuzuli, however since the city is completely ruined following its Armenian occupation, the current de facto capital is Horadiz until Fuzuli is rebuilt.

As of 2020, the district had a nominal population of 133,800. On October 20, 2020, the Government of Azerbaijan announced the recapture of Dordchinar, Kurdlar, Yukhari Abdurrahmanli, Garghabazar, Ashaghi Veysalli, Yukhari Aybasanli villages of the Fuzuli District from Armenian forces. Six more villages (Gejagozlu, Ashaghi Seyidahmadli, Zargar, Mollavali, Yukhari Rafadinli, Ashaghi Rafadinli) of the district were reportedly recaptured between October 21–22, according to Azerbaijani sources.
