In the era of the Umayyad state, Muslim migrations towards eastern Africa contributed to the entry of a large number of the people of Zanzibar in Islam. During this period, Al-Hajjaj bin Yusuf Al-Thaqafi attempted to annex Oman to the Umayyad state, during the era of the Umayyad Caliph Abd al-Malik bin Marwan. That period is ruled by the brothers Saeed and Suleiman Al-Jalandi, where the Al-Jalandi brothers refrained from pilgrims, so the latter sent a large army towards Oman, knowing that they would not be able to deter pilgrims, so they opted to flee and survive with their followers, and headed to the mainland.
The migration of the two brothers to Zanzibar resulted in the consolidation of the Omani presence on the island, and as a result, the governors on the island and its islands became followers of the rule of the imams of Oman, and the island continued in this case until the reign of Sultan (Saeed bin Sultan Al Busaidi), where he gave the island most of its unprecedented attention, The Sultan cemented civilizational links there with Oman, which included Zanzibar.
