Chapter 7 (part 4 of 4)


The coming of islam to southeast asia

Merchants often traded in southeast Asia, but up until the 700s they did so with each other, not so much the people of southeast Asia

Trade

By the 700s, southeast Asians begin to get involved in the trade (especially in places like Sumatra and Malaya)

The southeast Asians export mostly luxury items (aromatic woods and spices like nutmeg)

It was through this trade that Islam spreads to the people of Southeast Asia

The people of Srivijaya were Buddhist

When Srivijaya collapsed in the 1200s, it opened door for Islam to spread to southeast Asia

Sufis Key to Spreading Islam

Sufis (Muslim mystics) played big role in spreading Islam to India, and now played big role in spreading Islam to southeast Asia

Ulama (orthodox Muslims) do not like the Sufis because they let people maintain pre-Islamic traditions, but that helped people choose to convert

Example of pre-Islamic traditions that were allowed to be kept is the Javanese shadow puppet shows
