- Traditionally, kabials were mostly hindus and they derived their materials from the hindu mythology and way of life. The muslim folk
equivalent of the Kabial tradition is known as Jarigaan. The muslim folk poets were inspired by life and times of prophet
Mohammed and his disciples, and their themes were based on subject matters dwelling more on the Islamic folk heroes and
religious beliefs. It was not uncommon, however, to find hindu and muslim kabials, and more frequently rival hindu kabials, providing
excellent theosophical explanations of the differences between the believers of either religion and their eventual unity in diversity.
