Islam is the second largest religion in India and Muslim is the second largest community after Hindus in the country. Islam reached India in the very early period and it is believed that one of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)'s companions Malik bin Deenar came to India's western coast in 7th century and a mosque was built there in 629 EC which still exists. Since then Islam has a very strong root in India and Muslims spread across the subcontinent.
Muslims ruled India for over 600 years and contributed in many ways to Indian culture and society. Their contribution to literature, art, culture and architecture is part of India’s glorious history. The economy was so rich during the Muslim rule that India was known as the golden bird. After 1947, there is another phase of Islam and Muslims in India.
