Within Tamil literature, the literature of the Muslims belongs to the most unknown (cf., e.g., Richman 1993: 74). Even more unknown is the literature in Arwi, that is, Tamil written in Arabic script, though works in Arwi have been noticed by Europeans quite early. The aim of this article is to give a glimpse of Arwi literature and its importance for the study of the Tamil speaking Muslims, but also as a possible factor in cultural contact and exchange in the Indian Ocean area.
