Summary

Muslim traders arrived on the Swahili Coast during the eighth century with already established trade links between the Persian Gulf and the Swahili Coast. Intermarriages saw the Swahili people, reverting to Islam and further spread through their culture, and doctrines. Despite resistance toward Islam by the majority of communities living in the interior, Islam continued to spread across the nation. However, Islam on the Swahili Coast was different from the rest of the continent. Unlike West Africa where Islam was integrated to the local communities, the local Islam was ‘foreign’; the Arab-Muslims lived as if they were in the Middle East. Archaeological evidence attests the arrival of Ibn Batutta, to the Swahili Coast in 1331 AD and believed to have said- "The inhabitants are pious, honorable, and upright, and they have well-built wooden mosques".
