In 1007 AD, 398 AH, a literary play was composed by Muhammad Ihmadul Hamadani and contributed to the development of Muslim drama.

The historical message that Muslims have also contributed to the spread of dramas can be learned through electronic media. The purpose of this article is to highlight the historical record that Muslims have made a significant contribution to the art of drama literature.
