The emergence of Islam in Volga-Ural region and particularly in the period of Volga Bulghārs is one of the most formative and interesting era of Islamic history and civilization. It was the period during which Islamic civilization reached new heights of religious and secular achievements that are completely unknown to historians and researchers alike. Great Philosophers, Theologians, Scientists, Sufis and Poets have charmed this epoch. Important scientific innovations were made and a high degree of technical proficiency was achieved in the fields of architecture, pottery, leather-art and metal work. The Volga Bulghār state was the organizing force that brought about the conditions in which the arts flourished and the talents of scholars and scientists thrived. The period witnessed the emergence of Sufi orders and the strengthening of the relations of Volga Bulghāria with the Caliphate and Central Asia.

This book throws light on the broad aspects of religious ethos, political, social, economic as well as cultural institutions of the region both before and after the acceptance of Islam by Volga Bulghārs. It further discusses the period of the Golden Horde and its Islamization. The book also deals with the cultural confluence between the two biggest ethnicities of the region: Christianity and Islam.
