Introduction / History

The Mansoori Muslims live in Gujarat in the city of Ahmedabad. They were Hindus but have been Muslims for at least four hundred years. Urdu and Gujarati is spoken by them and they read and write in Perso-Arabic and in Gujarati too. They are not vegetarians and buffalo meat and beef are eaten by them with wheat and rice as cereals.

The Mansoori Muslims are endogamous, meaning they prefer marriages to occur within the group. They have cousin marriages. Divorce is allowed if approved by the community council. Marrying again is permitted. Monogamy is preferred by them.

The main work of the Mansoori Muslim is fabric making. They believe in education and modern medicines but not in family planning.
