Understanding Muslim Culture and Traditions


Islamic or Muslim culture and traditions are unique to Arabia. They were influenced by Mongol, Persian, Turkic, Berber, Indian and Indonesian cultures. The practices are the result of amalgamation of the Islamic empire.


Muslim culture represents the unification of all the cultures influenced by common beliefs and practices. The guiding religious phenomena and cultural aspects bind its people historically. The religious practices and beliefs of Muslims are centered on the religion of Islam. The original Muslim literature is in Arabic, the prophet's language. 

Most of the literature is religious in nature. It comprises communication and documentation of the belief system from the Qur'an, Sirah and Hadith. Secular Muslim literature developed in the Umayyad Empire. It was taken by the Arabs to distant lands and became part of a popular culture. In due course of time, Persian became one of the main languages of the civilization. In the sub-continent, syncretize poetry from the Sufis propagated the foundations of Muslim culture.
