Sylheti Identity Books

Here, at the Sylheti Heritage Collection (SHC) we are working towards creating a better learning and understanding about the Sylheti culture in a open learning platform. The common and public knowledge of the community is collated in a way for the every day learning for the British born Sylheti and anyone else who wants to know, learn, understand about the culture.

There are wealth of information about the community and abundance of writers and "Desh Premees", but not a lot of information in easy to read and understand English. SHC have written books with the very people in mind. The books tackle subjects that matter and relevant to the community, its people and in particular young people of today and the vanguards of tomorrow.

SHC along with Bangladeshi East End and British Bangladeshi labels have produced books since 2017. These books contain text, pictures and tables for easy learning and reading, to be attractive for everyone. They are books on Sufism of Bangladesh, core roots of the Sylheti Muslims, then the Pioneers in UK, UK Bangladeshi/Sylheti History and much more.  These books are to support individuals who want learn about the Sylheti identity, in UK and as Bangladeshi, Sylheti living in the United Kingdom.

The SHC books are about the culture and will expand the range as time goes on, here are following 5 books that encompass the Sylheti culture and identity:

1. Hazrat Shahjalal
2. Mazar Sharif
3. Lakri Tura
4. Gilaf
5. Urus

1. Hazrat Shahjalal - book covers Hazrat Shahjalal and his journey to Sylhet. This book looks at him and his purpose in life and the outcome.
