History of Lakshadweep

bitra

Not much is known of the early history of Lakshadweep. However, enough evidence exists to piece together a history of the islands from the 7th century on wards  The people were converted to Islam under the influence of Hazrat Ubaidullah who set off from Mecca after Prophet Mohammed (S.A.S) appeared to him in a dream, commanding him to leave for distant shores to propagate Islam. The ship on which Hazrat Ubaidulla was sailing was wrecked and after drifting on a plank of wood he reached the island of Amini where his mission met with fierce opposition.
