Comoros Country | Moroni City | Ouani | Adda-Doueni
Comoros, precisely the “Union of the Comoros” is an independent island nation located at the Northern end of Mozambique channel, East Africa. The country has is known for exotic beaches, volcanoes, and French colonial remains.
It is predicted that “Austronesians” were one of the first people that arrived on the islands in the 6th century. Later, during the era of Bantu migrations, Bantu people also settled on the island. It is also said that the people of the island sent a delegate to Arabia in 632 upon hearing of Islam.
By the time he arrived, the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) had died. He stayed in Mecca for some time, accepted Islam, and upon his return, most of his countrymen also accepted Islam.
Later on, the island was also visited constantly by Muslim traders and preachers. Portuguese were the first Europeans to visit the islands and traded slaves and various other things but didn’t colonize them.
The colonization came from the French side in 1841 and lasted till 1975, after which the country was given freedom.
The country is regarded as one of the poorest countries in the world with high levels of poverty, population increase, and unemployment. Fishing, hunting, and agriculture are the major economic sectors of the country which are generally undeveloped.
Islam is the largest religion of the country followed by a small minority of Christians. Comorian is the most widely spoken language of the country while Arabic and French serve as the official languages of the country.
There are several different mythologies regarding the ancient history of the country and according to one source, King Solomon also visited the islands.
Austronesians were the first known people to settle the islands around the 8th century. These people came from the Southeast Asian island via boats. As Islam rose in the 6th century, the islanders of Comoros heard about Islam and sent one of their representer toward Mecca to learn about Islam.
Although at the time he arrived, the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) died. He stayed a few days there and upon his return, his fellow islanders accepted Islam.
The Portuguese were the first Europeans to visit the island, however, they didn’t possess the islands and established trade. The French were the first to establish a colony over the islands and used them for trade and plantation purposes.
Some of the crops that were grown on the island include coffee, sisal, cocoa beans, perfume plants, vanilla, cloves, etc. the French ruled the islands for a long period and it was not until 1978 when the country finally gained its independence and Comoros became a free and self-governing country.
Comoros is ranked as a developing country and faces many economic and development challenges. The main problem is that the country due to its small size has very few natural resources.
The country mainly depends on fishing, agriculture, and shipping. However, these resources are still not enough and are the reason behind the high poverty rate in the country. More than 80% of the country’s population is dependent on agriculture and accounts for approx. 40% of the total GDP.
Some of the main agricultural products of the country include cassava, coconuts, bananas, cloves, vanilla, and copra.
Fishing in the country was pushed after 1980 and not only the locals but some other countries like Spanish boats also do ship in the country’s waters and pay a reasonable price.
Industries in the country are not of very large scale and pay a minor role in toward country’s GDP. Other sources of income include trade, tourism, import/export, etc.
Islam is the largest religion in the country followed by a small minority of Christians. Comorian is the most widely spoken language of the country while Arabic and French serve as the official languages of the country.
In terms of population, Comoros is one of the least populous countries in the world but due to its small size, it’s very densely populated. Around 34% of the total population lives in Urban areas while around 50% of the Comoros population is below 15 years.
The most widely spoken language in the country is Shikomori while some of the other languages that are spoken in the country include Arabic and French which also serve as the official languages of the country
Types of Houses in Comoros
Comoros is one of the poorest countries in the world and this is the reason that living conditions in the country are desperate. The majority of people can’t afford to buy or built proper houses. Moreover, the living conditions of the country are desperate and do not have any proper sanitation or sewerage system.
1. Ordinary Homes
This category is not a type but is for the type of homes that are not durable and built from other materials. For instance, these houses are made up of straw and the roofs of these homes are covered with coco leaves. Around 65% of the country’s population live in these types of homes. As described earlier, these houses do not have any proper sanitation or sewerage system.
2. Permanent Homes
These homes are built with proper construction material like bricks, concrete, etc. and out of the total percentage, 25% of the total houses in Comoros are of this type. We can see the difference that estimates that the proper houses on Comoros are very less.
Due to the financial support of other countries like China, Turkey, etc. the quality of housing in the country is improving, and houses such as based on containers, etc. are built in the country. Moreover, the plant to build the blocks locally was also set up. Hopefully, with these improvements, we will able to see a better and improved living condition in Comoros.

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been an incredible delight working with him.. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA
"I contacted Sureshji to consult on our current home. He was spot on in identifying vastu dosha in regards to the problems we were having. He suggested remedies but we are still looking for a new house. Since then I have been in touch with him for finding a right home for us. He is very sincere and truly wishes better lives for everyone. He doesn’t compromise with quality and is always responsive to queries. He recommends solutions as per location as vaastu rules differ for each country. He is greatly contributing to the society with his knowledge of Vaastu Shastra and dedication towards his work. Keep up the good work Sureshji and wish you success and happiness!" - Megha - Virginia - USA
I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA

Be brave to fight with anything, you can. . you can . . you can do miracles. Wake UP and 'S T A R T' from now." - "Swami Vivekananda"
