Description:
An Ethnological Study of the Muslims of Sri Lanka by Asiff Hussein is by far the most comprehensive work of its kind. It is the culmination of much research, inquiry and field studies on the society and culture of the country’s major Muslim groups, the Moors, Malays, Memons and other Muslims of Indian origin who though of different ethnic origins, share the common faith of Islam. The work is multi-disciplinary in scope and contains detailed information on aspects like ethnic origins, language, settlements, birth, marriage and funeral customs, dress and ornamentation, culinary fare, medical remedies, names and titles, occupations, social organisation, ceremonial observances and religious and folk beliefs. Not only does this study corroborate and substantiate established facts, but it also postulates some new ideas and theories which should stimulate further research and inquiry.

Description:
History is said to be a little more than a record of the crimes, follies and misfortunes of humanity and historians have traditionally been attracted by wars and rebellions whereas the peaceful coexistence of groups of people over long periods tends to be overlooked. Hence history deals more with the arts of war and much less with the arts of peace.

In the history of Sri Lanka few are aware of the harmonious relationship which has developed between the Sinhalese, its indigenous inhabitants, and Muslims who initially were foreigners, and that both have lived together peacefully for over a thousand years. Perhaps because it was such a peaceful relationship, it has passed unnoticed by the historian.
