Abstract

It is difficult to know for certain the earliest settlement of Indians in the begining years AD. Most historians are of the opinion that early Indian settlements only appeared in the 15th Century AD and they involved only Indian Muslims. This was because the Islamic arrival in India in the middle centuries paved the way for trade between India and the Malay World, specifically at the end of the middle centuries, and this trade began to be dominated by Indian Muslim traders, particularly from Bengal, Gujerat and Coromandel. It is the aim of this article to discuss the history of the Indian Muslim arrival in Malaysia and and their areas of settlement concentration.
