Kerala

It is the compulsory duty of a muslim to spread the message of Islam to the people and to the places where it has not yet reached. The muslim traders who came to Kerala understood this and they undertook the responsibility of introducing the religion of Islam to the people of Kerala.

So many people who heard their teachings and saw their noble way of living attracted towards Islam and they embraced this religion. The King of Cranganoor was attracted in the teaching of Islam. He embraced Islam and provided all the facilities to the muslim traders who came to his country.During this period there were scholars in Kerala, who were really pained in the conditionof the muslim society and they wanted to revive the muslims to thier old pride and prestige. they tried for the reformation of the society on the basis of Islamic principles.

A few scholars who wished for the success of muslims – here and in the life after, undertood that it is possible only through a life based on the holy Quran and the Hadiths of prophet Muhammed (s.a.w). They invited muslims who are having similar faiths and beliefs, and formed an organisation called Kerala Jamiyathul Ulama (Organisation of Scholars) in the beginning of the 20th century. Their main aim was to advice muslims on the basis of good deeds and to object them from doing the evils deeds. The orthodox people who continued to expoit the muslims began to oppose this organisation very strictly. Later as an organisation for all the people, irrespective of scholars or not, to work for Islam was established ,i.e. Kerala Nadvathul Mujahidee (K.N.M). This organisation is now working all over kerala for the upliftment of muslims from the superstitious, blind faith, polytheism and many other evil practices which are against the true spirit of Islam. It also working for imparting religious and general education to muslims in order to refine them and to spread the message of Islam among muslims as well as non-muslims. It tries to teach muslims holy Quran and the teachings of prophet in its true and original form. It opposes all those faiths and beliefs against holy Quran and the teachings of prophet Muhammed (s.a.w). K.N.M. is also trying for the upliftment of women also.
