Muslims believe that Muhammed was the last in a line of prophets beginning with Adam, Moses and Jesus. Prophet Muhammed brought the message of God to the people in a pure and uncorrupted form. This message was revealed in the form of the Holy Quran and is supported by the Hadith, which are the records describing Prophet Muhammed’s actions and words, thereby providing guidance for a purposeful life for all followers of Islam.

The Indentured labour system brought many Muslims from India to Fiji. The early immigrants joined together to preserve their religious interests and welfare and formed the Muslim League in 1926 as a National umbrella organisation for Muslim interests and the various Muslim groups.
