India’s importance to the arrival of Islam to the Thai/Malay peninsula relates to what Islam came to, where Islam initially came from, and who Islam came through.
Islam in Southeast Asia has long been connected to international maritime trade especially before the arrival of European colonial powers in the sixteenth century.
