Dr. Rehna Sultana.

Abstract
Assam is a vast and populous state with an extreme richness of variety and colour in respect of religion, language, custom, tradition, costume, art and crafts etc., where the Muslims have been playing a very significant and positive role in the formation and development of the Assamese society and it's composite culture. Despite their assimilation, association and co-existence with the Assamese Hindu neighbours, the Muslims of Assam in their own traditional way maintain a complete separate religious identify with a distinctive blend of similarities and diversities among themselves. It is noted that the Muslim community has similarities in religion and ideological in terms of a policy of uniformity but there are differences between own self. Although the Muslims of all over India have common religious identity, there is also considerable diversity amongst them relating to their socio-cultural sphere. Like other Muslims in India, Assamese Muslims also reflect significant variations in terms of culture, caste, class, language, occupation, geographical distribution and ideology. This study aims at imparting an understanding and creating an awareness among the people regarding the proper identity of the Assamese Muslims.

Key words: Assam, Muslim, Assamese, religion, community, identity, society, history, culture, language, diversity, stratification
