Salaat comes from the word Saliya which means stone. They are stone cutters by tradition. The Salat were originally from Sindh and they migrated to Rajasthan, a state in western India. They speak Gujarati with words from the Marwari language.
These masons are involved in building mosques and temples. In addition to stone cutting, many are building contractors or do trading. The Salat are endogamous (meaning they prefer to marry within their group) and prefer to marry close relatives. The Salat have a community organization called a Jamat that looks after their needs.
The Salat or Salaat are Muslim converts from Hinduism.
These Muslims need to know they need a savior who will give them abundant life.
