The King of Hindu Srivijaya II, namely Sri Indrawarman, wrote a letter to the Caliph of Ummayad Umar ibn Abdul Aziz in 100 H (718 AC) asking that Muslim preachers were delegated to the Land of Srivijaya to teach its people about Islam.

Two years later, Sri Indrawarman who was formerly a Hinduism follower embraced Islam and changed his name to Sribuza Islam.
