story of Islam in Kerala is a story of organic assimilation, best exemplified
by the older mosques.

small jetty looks like a downgraded bus stop. People sit on stone benches, lean
against the wall and some simply stand as they wait. Their eyes do not restlessly
gaze at the other bank of the river nor do they seem to eagerly anticipate the
arrival of the boat. There is no sense of hurry or impatience. When you scan around,
you see mundu, bedi umbrella, boats, verdant green and the red flags.
This dot of a space seems like a fractal version of the larger State, Kerala.
The wide Bharathapuzha, which meets the sea a few hundred metres away, fixes the
place geographically. The history that has accrued gives it specificity. The name
of the town is Ponnani and the place is Palli Kadavu. Palli refers to the mosque
and kadavu is the jetty.
Kadavu is the beginning (or end?) of a fairly long street. The mosque that gives
the name to the place is something special and could be the reason, apart from
the river, to bring you here. This mosque is known as Thottungal Palli and considered
the oldest in Ponnani. At first glance, the mosque appears like a large house
and a less-informed traveller could even mistake it to be a temple. The pitched
roof, clay tiles, the decorative mogapu or front and the finials on the
ridge are very regional in their character. There are no minarets and no domes.
The call for prayers can be heard from the loudspeakers that are loosely tied
to the mogapu.
row of old and beautiful houses lines the street. Down the road, there is another
mosque known as the Agathe Palli, built in the 15th century. One may miss this
mosque unless one is looking for it. This is partly due to the smaller scale of
the building and the way it sits on the street. The mosques, including the one
at the kadavu, are not viewed head on. They are aligned with the sides
of the street and are like any other building that front the street. Their architecture,
too, does not stand out but rather weave with other buildings. But the Valia Juma
Masjid in Ponnani is an exception in terms of scale. This mosque is little larger
than the other two, but the architectural language is similar. William Logan,
the historian, thinks that the structure was built in 1519 A.D. In this mosque,
near the Mihrab - arched niche facing the direction of Mecca - one can find a
brass lamp as in a temple. Similar to the temple tanks, the mosque also has a
large tank outside and is open to people.

has been a gateway, a place where many cultures and ideas arrived and flourished.
Active trade existed between Arabia and Kerala and the Muslims dominated the trade.
The kings of Kerala welcomed people to stay and granted them economic and religious
security. Traders from Baghdad, Yemen and Bahrain had settled in many ports of
Kerala and traded in spices and wood. By the end of the Seventh century, Islam
reached the shores of Kerala through its traders. Christianity and Judaism had
reached the place before Islam and enjoyed peaceful co-existence. For long, different
religions spread in a non-aggressive manner. Local communities, both the lower
and upper castes, took to the new ideas and converted to the new religion for
various reasons. In turn, Islam that spread in Kerala assimilated the local culture.
one level, the Mapillas, Muslims of north Kerala, had invented Arabic Malayalam
and engaged the local language through Arabic. At another level, they followed
social customs like Marumakkathayam or the matrilineal system prevalent among
communities like the Nairs. Customs like tying thali or mangal sutra,
dowry system and other rituals were assimilated into Muslim culture. The architecture
of the mosques was embedded in this negotiation and assimilation.
many-pillared prayer hall resembles the earlier typology of hypostyle mosques
that are known for their rows of columns. It is certainly related to the pillared
halls of temple and palaces and grew out of the local methods of construction.
The forms, architectural details and the material used are very much local.
is this notion of assimilation more exhibited than in the Jama Masjid, Kozhikode.
In the Thekkepuram area of Kozhikode are centuries-old mosques - Miskal , Jama
Masjid and Muchendi. Unlike Ponnani, the Jama Masjid in Kozhikode does not appear
prominent. It is larger in size but it is laid along the street and only the two-storied
porch engages the street prominently.
entrance porch of Jama Masjid is warm and welcoming with platforms on either side.
For a moment you think you have stepped inside a house. The wooden plank on the
platform is many inches thick and the columns are solid wood sculpted in geometrical
forms. The ceilings are ornate with floral motifs. Above the ornate relief, the
verses of Quran are etched. Mohammad Koya, the Valia Qazi of Kozhikode, reads
aloud the inscription on the wooden panel above the entrance. The inscription
refers to the later addition and expansion of the mosque. The addition and the
original core are seamlessly stitched.

of the Muslims of Kerala, diffused light from the wooden trellis washes his small
office in the first floor. The first floor is used for classes and short stays.
The space is spartan but the wood is sumptuously used. It is the rich details
of the wooden construction that are revealed as an ornament. There are no religious
symbols and representations in this floor. The spatial quality resembles the large
wooden houses of Kerala.
history of Kerala dramatically changed with the advent of Portuguese in the 17th
century. The Portuguese unleashed violence to wrest control of trade from the
Muslims. The amicable relationship and the alliance between the Mappilla Muslims
and the Zamorins changed. The story of the Mapillas in the colonial period and
after is a different story to be told elsewhere.
Beginnings and continuities
in Kerala and Tamil Nadu
The history of Kerala mosques, for
that matter the history of mosques in India, is believed to start with the Kodungallur
mosque. It is associated with the legend of King Cheraman Perumal, his pilgrimage
to Mecca and meeting with the prophet and conversion to Islam. If this legend
is about beginnings, the story of Mossakaka, the influential trader at Tellicherry
and his deft handling of the colonisers, is about continuity. Mossakaka was intelligent
and wealthy enough to convince the East India Company to sell their sugarcane
garden within the city so that he could build the Odathil mosque. Between these
two legends passed thousand years, but the traditions and the architecture that
sprang from them exhibit a spirit of continuity and assimilation.
Syedina Malik Ibn Dinar ( Razi Allahu Thaala Anhu ) and 11 others
who were the followers of Prophet Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam,
first landed in Kodungallur in Kerala when they came to India.
Islam received royal patronage in some states here, and later
spread to other parts of India. He was gifted a defunct Jain
temple by the local ruler, where he established the first mosque
in the Indian subcontinent. The exact date of its establishment
is not known but is believed to be in 629 CE. Though, generally
it is considered to be the second mosque of the world to make
Jumma Prayer after the mosque in Medina, Saudi Arabia. His missionary
team then went on to built 10 other mosques along the Malabar
coast including the ones at Kollam, Chaliyam,Pantalayini Kollam/Quilandi,
Madayi/Pazhayangadi, Srikandhapuram,Dharmadom, Kasaragode,Mangalore
and Barkur. Some reports suggest that the ancient mosques at
Chombal, Kottayam,Poovar and Thengapattanam were also built
during this time.
the fall of Chola Dynasty, the newly formed Vijayanagara Empire
invited the Seljuk Turks from Ottoman Empire from the Fractions
of Hanafi (Known as Rowther in South India) for trade link in
1279 AD, then biggest armada of Turks traders and missionaries
settled in Tharangambadi (Nagapattinam), Karaikal, Muthupet,
Koothanallur and Podakkudi. Turks (Rowthers) were unable to
convert Hindus in Tanjore regions. The Turks settled in this
area's with their armada and expanded to a moderate size of
Islam community with population of almost 1 million Rowthers.
These new settlements were now added to the Rowther community.

more closely connected with the Turkish than others in South.
There are some Turkish Anatolian and Turkish Safavid Inscriptions
found in wide area from Tanjore to Thiruvarur and in many villages,
inscriptions seized by Madras Museum and available for public
viewing. You may contact Archeologic Division [II] at Madras

in the 1300 AD Arabs settles in the areas of Nagore, Kilakkarai,
Adirampattinam, Kayalpatnam, Erwadi and Sri Lanka this peoples
may have been the first Shafi Fractions (Known as Marakkar in
Far South and Coastal area of South India) community of Islam.
Shafi Fractions also have mixed fair and darker complexion because
they were more closely connected with the Arabs than others
in South. Arab traders also opened many new villages in these
areas and settles. Intensive missionary activities were carried
out along the coast and a number of natives like Malaya and
Indonesia also embraced Islam. Arabs (Marakkar's) missionaries
marries local women's and convert them to Islam. This conversion
made Marakkars to be a very big Islamic community of almost
2.5 million peoples.

childhood i have heard the name of vavar swamy from many of my hindu friends who
go to sri ayyappa temple and dargah of hazrath vavar shah baba (ra).
Sri ayappan pilgrims follow strict rules and regulations before
going to pilgrims, they take bath in cold water early morning
4 am every day, they wear a black holy dress and no slippers
and also the pilgrims avoid womens that they donot even eat
food made of women's hand until this piligrimage of about about
40 days. They follow strong bhakti.
And also my friends informed that visiting dargah is compulsary
and if some one doesn't perform fateha or visit this dargah
they will definetly face problems in their ways or some thing
will happen to them if they don't visit this dargah.
I have seen all piligrims have a great love and respect of the
dargah of this sufi saint of south india.
