List Of 308 Castes In Islam Indian Muslims


Hinduism is vilified for its Caste Divisions.

Caste is some thing that can not be wished away in a Human being however enlightened one pretends to be.

For my views on Caste please refer my post caste, under Hinduism.

Religions that make fun of idol worship have landed in worshiping idols.

Islam, The Kaaba,Prophet’s hair,Hazratbal

Christianity, Jesus, The Cross.

Buddhism, The Buddha, His teeth.

Jainism, Bhaubali, Mahaveera.

Hinduism understands that human mind can not function and focus in a vacuum and hence recommended Idol worship, though in higher philosophy of Hinduism, Idol worship is discouraged.

Please read my articles on this.

This is the list of castes among Muslims in India, some 308 of them!

  1. It is sad that today in a world of so much knowledge, people can still see each other with separateness. RAMANAN you have no business preaching any religion even your own yet. I am from Durban South Africa and was shocked at reading this page and some of your and other comments. Please don’t create more hatred but love.. Your words and thoughts are like a boomerang! Take the time to smell the roses before judging it.

  3. First understand the definition of caste properly. Unlike Hindu caste system there is no superior, inferior or untouchable in Islam. They all stand shoulder to shoulder and pray in the mosque. There is no black or white. Everyone is equal in Islam. These are not castes they are names of cultures.. May Allah guide you to the right path.

  4. Caste existed well before the arrival of Islam in India. When people accepted Islam religion caste continue to be part of their social & community life to this day. Caste and Islam are two seperate topics. Caste and class system is well ingriend into our Indian life irrespective of religion. Let us learn from our own historical mistakes of dividing ourselves and learn to live more peacefully.

  5. It’s rather unfortunate to read such things,I believe you have really misunderstood Islam.in islam we believe in one God who is creator of everything,that Is Allah and we believe in peace.We are not terrorists as the media claims,those people just use the name of Islam to hide their wrong doings,Allah says in Quran (our holy book) that if a person kills another person,he has killed the entire humanity and if a person saves another person,it means that person has saved entire humanity.Also in Islam Allah commands us to respect everyone’s choice,which includes their religion,and also you have somewhere mentioned that we worship prophet (P.B.U.H) hair but that’s not true,we do not worship it we cherish it (we only worship Allah). Prophet Muhammad were the messenger of Allah,prophet Muhammad is the person who has guided us to the right path and we love him with all our heart,by just seeing their hair we remember how much sacrifices he has done for us but that doesn’t mean we worship him.i can’t change your ideology nor can I change the fact that their are people in world who hate Islam without actually knowing about it,they don’t know a thing about Islam but post whatever lies they have heard.let me tell people like you how it feels to be a Muslim.when you walk down the road covering your head with a hijab people look at you like a criminal,with hatred in their eyes.they hate you without knowing what kind of person you are.even illiterates can’t do such shameful act but their are many people who are educated still forget their education while they act in such a disgusting manner.but we Muslims can bear all the hatred from the world,Do You Know Why?its because we believe in Allah,and we know,no matter how many hardships we are going to bear,we will get a reward after dying.the reward Allah has promised for us ‘JANNAH'(paradise).and please I have a request don’t judge Islam or Muslims without knowing abou them.

    1. “Whoever kills a person [unjustly]… hahaaaa so if we kill a person and give a justification then its okey????? Quran 5:32 and it mentions to Children of Israel !!! and dont say you have ancestors from Israel . yes Hindus have millions of cast but beheading other caste people for just the caste reason is unheard, and if inequality exist it may be in some part where uneducation prevales to the core, INDIA is only place where all sectors of muslims are together , you know too shias and sunnis kill each others from years and you know the reasons.Arabs see indian/ south asian muslims as lower-class Muslims.wether you like it or not this is the truth bro.

  6. Islam is a violent religion. There are many castes in islam. Caste clashes are frequent in islam, but press does not report it. Gandhi made a big mistake in not making India a HIndu state in 1947. Muslims should have been driven to paksitan. We did not do it & we are paying for it…. with our lives.

  7. Sheer ignorance.. You would have consulted some muslim on the validity of what you are putting. You have every right to love or hate Islam but dont be intellectually dishonest.If 2 diff courts give 2 diff judgements,doesnt mean we have 2 constitutions. Same is wd sch of law.Its just 2 interpretations. Your classification fails at Level 1

      1. Your comment is not Abusive and hence I have quoted you in the Post as it has been approved for publication.At the beginning of the Post I have mentioned that I have not approved such comments which have been found abusive .I have responded only to those which have tried to clarify the issue.Regards

  8. A very poorly written article. Let alone research or referencing, you haven’t even proofread it. There are many duplicate entries. You seem to confuse cultural groups and lineage with castes. Caste is characterised by hereditary occupations and intermingling, among other characteristics. The image at the start lists out different belief systems within Islam; it is not indicative of social/cultural classes or groups, but theological differences amongst Muslims. Most importantly, there is no sanction for castes in Quran/Hadith unlike other religion’s authoritative and definitve texts.

    What you’ve compiled (or, just posted perhaps) and passed off as castes, is in fact –
    – a repetitive list; Syed, Sayyid, Sayyed, etc. are merely different spellings. What’s with Pathans of X area and Pathans of Y area? This differentiation is hardly ever identified in reality.
    – a list of lineages, i.e. – Syed, for instance, implies that they descend from Ali, the Prophet’s cousin and Pathans are those people whose ancestors were from Af-Pak.
    – cultural backgrounds; Konkani, Dakhani (of Deccan), Goan, Gujarati, etc. are not castes. These are cultures, not castes.

    All those you’ve listed, will and do, stand shoulder to shoulder in the same mosque and pray to the same God and believe in the same things, with some variations in practice and theory. At the most, there may be about 10-15 different groups that wouldn’t share mosques due to major differences in beliefs, and not social status.

    For starters, eliminate the duplicate entries. Check ‘Faqir’, for instance – it appears as the 101st, 189th and 264th ‘caste’, besides a couple of entries without numbers. You’d be surprised to know that anybody can be a ‘faqir’ – it’s a way of life wherein one takes an oath to give up material life. Somewhat like sanyaas.
    ‘Sayyid’, with the same spelling and no variations, appears at 181, 76 and 33 positions. Then, it appears as ‘Sayyid of Gujarat’ as well.
