Islam was spread in India by a band of missionary saints and not by kings or conservative Alims churned by Madrasas. These broadminded saints introduced innovations to adapt to Indian soil and achieved the targets-spreading Islam and achieving communal harmony. They were endowed by Allah Taala with miraculous powers that drew to them millions of people of all communities and this helped the cause of Islam.A few of these saints came to Assam.One of them is Sawal Pir.The real name of Sawal Pir(R) was Ali Masum.
According to historian Nila Gohain(Ref.Kharaigurir Azan?), Sawal Pir(R) came to Assam a few years before Azan Pir's arrival. Shri Gohain has also stated that Sawal Pir became head of the Muslim Community after Azan Pir's (R) death.
As per a Zikir, Azan Pir was in Assam around the year 1635. From this, Sawal Pir's arrival in Assam can also be determined.
