About the Book
Manipur’s little-known Muslim communities have a long and rich history, dating
from the time of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). In this exhaustive
historical account, Farooque Ahmed traces the arrival of Islam in the region in
615 CE through the Prophet’s companion S’ad ibn abi Waqqas, an uncle of the
Prophet, who also was instrumental in spreading Islam in China. Around the same
time, an Arab Muslim family settled in the Manipur region and over the centuries
Muslim traders, settlers and preachers helped the nascent community expand,
flourish and thrive. These waves of migrations and local conversions coalesced
into a unique identity of ‘Pangal Musalman’ reflecting the egalitarian and
congregational ideals of Islam.
