The Arab conquest of Sind cannot be regarded as an event without any results. Firstly, as a result of the Arab conquest close contact was established between India and the Arab world.
Secondly, Masudi, a contemporary writer refers to the trade routes and the objects of trade between India and the Arab world. Thirdly, it was through the Arabs that the Indian ideas, both spiritual and material, had flowed to the western countries. Thus it may be said, though futile politically, that the Arab conquest of Sind had inaugurated a new era of commercial and cultural relationship between India and the Arab world.
