Comment: This is a very good news for our cousin brother Rohingyas. If the Arakan Muslims and Panthay (Burmese Chinese Muslims) could be the origin of the Manipur Indian Muslims and they stayed with the Magh people (the Arakanese nationalities known in Bengal) Mag…hs_http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magh_people
The border between the two countries appeared later in history and you all could not be alien to any of the two countries….

I now put briefly about the history of Manipuri Muslims, Pangals who are acculturated to the Meiteis in various aspects.

Eidgah or Idgah عیدگاہ

September 21, 2009

Muslims offering Id prayers at an Eidgah in Jammu on Friday.

Eidgah or Idgah (Urdu: عیدگاہ) is an open-air mosque usually outside of city (or at the outskirts) to perform Eid salah.

It was a practice of Prophet Muhammadsawa to perform Eid Salaah in Eidgah at the outskirts of the city. Hence, It is Sunnah to perform Eid Salaah at the Eidgah.

The very first Eidgah was at the outskirts of Madina nearly 1000 footsteps from Masjid-e-Nabawi.
