About

Islam in China is a blog that seeks to cover all things Chinese and Islamic. Additionally my aim is also dispel some myths about Islam and also about China. The name Wang Daiyu was the name of a Chinese Muslim scholar who held the office of the Master Supervisor of the Imperial Observatory in China and also wrote many famous books on Islam in Chinese.

  1. Assalamu’Alaykum,

    Good on you! I hopped over from Aliana’s blog. I’m half Chinese and live in a a country where the Chinese population is the minority. On top of that, most of them are non-Muslim.

    I hope to visit regularly to learn. lol. it’s good that there are blogs like these. You should visit http://www.thingstoknowaboutmuslimsandarabs.blogspot.com. There’s some stuff to clear up over there too.

    It’s weird how culture and Islam can contradict each other so much that it distorts the true beauty of the religion.

    Good luck with the blog though! Look forward to developments.

    • ASAK,

      MarshAllah this website is fantastic.

      With the rise of China’s presence on the world stage and the increase in practicing Muslim brothers and sisters it becomes ever so more important to have a reliable source of basic Islamic information!

      Please visit our website http://www.SwanseaMosque.org or http://www.LoveIslam.co.uk

      It has always been my wish to visit China. IA Allah will give me the opportunity to meet my brothers and sisters there :)

  2. Assalamalakum!

    I’m glad you started this. My husband is chinese and muslim so this is great : )

    Looking forward to reading.

  3. wa’alaikum’as’salam to both of you.
    hijabhaven, sister the blog link that you pasted is not working. Can you please post it again. Also you are right about culture and religion but one of the beauties of Islam is that it can adapt to a lot of cultures without compromising itself and thus is why we have such wonderful diversity in the Muslim ummah.

    chaoticstarlite, great. I am looking forward to posting more stuff.

    Comment to both: Welcome sisters and I hope you people stay around. hijabhaven since you are half-Chinese and chaoticstarlite your husband is Chinese I hope you people can contribute your experiences about the Chinese Muslim milieu sometime in the future.

  4. assalamu alaykum

    I’m very glad to discover your blog. I always wanted to know more about Islam in China.

    May I ask you a question : Is there also a revival of Islam in China I mean currently ?

    Jazakallah Khayr

    a muslimah from France :)

  5. wa’alaikum’as’salam Muslimah
    Welcome to the blog. A Muslimah from France, great! Regarding the revival of Islam in China it is somewhat complex because there are people of Muslim background who are being assimilated to such an extent that they practically leave Islam but at the same time there is also an awareness amongst many Muslims to learn more about Islam. As far as dawah is concerned then there is not much dawah going on amongst the Chinese.

  6. Hi there
    Its nice to see a blog that finally covers Muslims in China. Being from Brunei I have always closely interacted with the local Chinese Bruneians by the way and many of them
    happen to be one of my closest friends (even though they’re mostly non-Muslim). But there have been quite a few converts time and time again. Some of my cousins happen to be Chinese. I’d like to know how profound is the assimilation of most Chinese Muslims are by the way? I hope its not too deep because it’ll be sad since it’ll may mean the loss of a unique Islamic culture just like what happened to the Chinese Muslims in Malaysia where the old Chinese mosque that admiral Zheng He built has now become Temple.

    • Assalamualaikum.
      Dear Adi,
      It’s been almost 2 years since you wrote this comment. I hope you’re still following this website and if you read this, I would like to ask you if you can tell me where the masjid that was built by Admiral Zheng He is located that was later turned into a temple. I’m from Malaysia and I could ask around to find out about this. I’m only asking you to point me in the right direction. I’m sorry for my ignorance.

  7. Assalaamu aleikum
    I followed a link from Umm Zaid’s blog (Sunni sister) and am very impressed with your blog. I am a white convert to Islam (British background) and have often come up against stereotypes that Islam is only for Arabs and people from the Indian subcontinent. Islam is for everyone regardless of background or origin, and I am delighted to learn about Islam among my Chinese brothers and sisters.
    May Allah reward you for your efforts. I look forward to reading more of your blog in sha Allah
    Your sister

    • assalamoalaikum, brothers and sister let us also y
      say our selves just muslims and not sunni or wahabior belonging to any sect . it will ill bring us more closer.Muslim is just muslim. there are only two kinds . practising and non-practicing.Allah may keep on the first side.Aamin

  8. Subhanallah. I love this blog. I am an acupuncturist and teacher of Chinese medicine, and pulse diagnosis. I was in China before I embraced Islam, but honestly remember the incredible impression that the many Hui and Uighur brothers I saw made upon me with their harmonious comportment, their adab, and the dignity of their appearance. Insha’llah I’ll be going back to more specifically muslim areas of China, including Xinjiang. I also recently learned that Kunming has a sizable muslim population, and I may have the opportunity to go there next year. My blog is largely concerned with how Chinese medicine can be of service to the ummah, insha’llah.

    Wa salam.

  9. Wa’alaikum’as’salam everyone and welcome to the blog

    Adi, that is quite interesting. Regarding the degree of assimilation of Muslims in China then it is a very complex phenomenon and varies from region to region and even in the Chinese Muslim (mainly Hui) diaspora the degree of assimilation depends upon a number of factors like the presence of non-Muslim Chinese, the attitude of the dominant non-Chinese ethnic group and its religion and so on. On the point about Zheng He’s mosque being a Temple, I am quite surprised! Can you please send me more information about it?

    H, Jazak’Allah sister and Ameen to your duas. The stereotypes can be really strange since only 20% of Muslims are Arabs and China has more Muslims than MOST Arab countries! The case of South Asia is interesting since a third of all Muslims in the world live in South Asia which is in itself an interesting fact. Then there are of course less known historical Muslim communities in “far away” places like Crimea, Poland who have been living there for hundreds of years.

    Brother Abdallah, that is pretty cool. I would also love to know about your travels in China and perhaps we can post some information on this blog if you like. Kunming is the capital of the Yunnan province which at one time had a Muslim majority but not anymore. Yunnan was the center of the infamous Panthay Rebellion.

  10. assalamalikum Wang. I am really glad to see your blog here. I may be actually coming to China next year with my MBA group, and I was hoping to take a little time afterwards to explore Muslim regions of China… perhaps you could help me!

    Do stop by MuslimMatters.org and add your link in our link section. You provide a wonderful resource.

  11. Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullah,

    I would just like to mention that the hadith about China at the top of the page is weak

    • assalamoalaikum brother it was better if please had some authentic reason otherwise this hadith is perfectly according to the Islamic teachings.At the same time i myself also dont have chain of narrators. Yet ur the first one to quote it s weak Hadith Wallah-ho-Aalum

  12. Please don’t invade China with the whole islam stuff. Let the Chinese stay atheists, okay? There’s too much trouble in this world already where religion is present. Just look at the recent wars… USA (Christians) vs. Iraq/Afghanistan etc. (Muslim), Israel (Jews) vs. Syria/Lebanon etc. (Muslim). I think it’s best to just leave people be. Don’t try to convert anyone, it only causes trouble, in my opinion.

    I mean, to each his own, and it’s no problem being Christian or Muslim but history has shown that these two religions aren’t the most peaceful ones. I think it’s better to just keep them in certain regions so other people can just live without all the trouble. I do not doubt the initial peaceful intentions from everyone, but for some reason it always turns to violence within Islam and Christianity. And I think that this violence comes from the thought that you have to “convert” people to the true religion. There is no such thing as a “true” religion. If there really is a good, he doesn’t care about what kind of religion you have. He only cares if you live well and living well isn’t something invented by religion. It’s a set of basic rules, basically known by every single human. Things start to go wrong when religion kicks in, as far as I can tell. Suddenly weird rules are invented like having to pray towards the east, not being able to eat pork or having to pray towards a big wall. I don’t believe God cares about that. Believers have no right to attack non-believers just because they think that praying towards a wall or the east is ‘the way to do it’.

    So please, just let it rest.

    • salam aleykum

      In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

      Say: O disbelievers!
      I do not worship what you worship.
      And will ye worship that which I worship.
      I do not worship what you worship.
      And will ye worship that which I worship.
      To you your religion and unto me my religion.

    • Islam is the only true religion and essential to all human to become muslim because we are all were being created by the Only Great God, Allah the Almighty.

      There are no god the truly we worship except Allah, and Nabi Muhammad is Allah’s messenger.

      Helanren,

      How stupid the atheist thinking which they can’t find their own god (meaning your heart and eyes are blind). Please think, how did you get life, get breathing, why only human had being gifted a heart and brain to think? Why animal did not have any brain to think? Why the skies were still on its place, not falling down? Why there have day and night? Which night had been created for us to sleep and rest; while the day had been created for us to work for us to go on with our life.

      Didn’t you see how beatiful the arrangement of our life? Is it come by nature? No, these all are created for us because we are being assigned to do one mission.

      What is the mission? The mission not to worship other than the God. Who is the god? The God is only Allah the Almighty and also to be khalifah Allah on the earth with guide by HIM which is Al-Quran and Hadith.

      Our life are not gifted to us just to be like animal like monkey, like pig, like dog, like chicken which they just live for food and lust. But we are being created by our creator to be higher living than the animals which have been gifted with brain to think.

    • Helen, no one is “invading” China with Islam. Islam has been in China for 1,400 years. You know the Chinese flag? There’s five yellow stars on it right (assuming you’ve seen one), one of the stars is attributed to the Hui Chinese, or the Chinese Muslims. No one’s “invading” anyone. Read some books please. Peace be with you.

  13. wa’alaikum’as’salam’wa’rahmatullah’wa’barakatahu zaazaan,
    Thanks for pointing that out brother. While that is one view regarding the hadith, that is not the only view. I will do a post on this hadith soon. Jazakallah brother.

    halanren, Actually Muslims have been in China for almost 1400 years so one does not have to worry about any invasion or converting everyone. I agree believers do not have any right to attack non-believers. Unfortunately people throughout history have used different ideologies, including religion, to impose their will on others.

  14. Dear Brother Wang Daiyu,

    As-salaamu alaikum wa-rahamat ullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

    I shall be grateful if you can send me as much information as you have on Shahaba “Saad Bin Abi Waqqas (RA)” whose tomb is in Guangzhou on my Email.
    If you have books or documents on his life, please let me know, I will send you my address on my Email.
    I am preparing a documentation on his life.

    Thanking you in anticipation.

    Jazaak Allah.

  15. Great site! I hope to see more articles here which I dont find anywhere else like Chinese Islam, Chinese Muslim names, Chinese Muslim cuisine, Chinese Muslim music, Chinese Muslim art, and so on. I would love to read how has the universal message of Islam has adapted to the Chinese culture.

    We have somewhat similar blog http://indianmuslims.in related with the Indian Muslims.

  16. Dear Ahmad wa’alaikum’as’salam’wa’rah’wa’barakatahu, Sorry for the late reply. This is a subject that I am also interested in and also currently trying to find out more information. I will let you know if I come across anything substantial and will also post it on the blog insha’Allah. In the mean time best of luck on your project.

  17. As’salam’o’alikum, Welcome to the blog Faisal and thanks for pointing out the Indian Muslims blog. The history of Indian and other South Asian Muslims is a fascinating story especially given that one third of all Muslims in the world live in the Indian sub-continent!

  18. As-Salammua’laikum, Wang Daiyu.

    Thank you for visiting my blog that led me to yours. I appreciate your efforts in highlighting to the world that there are many Muslims in China.

    In my country, most of the Chinese are unware of the facts that there are many Chinese born Muslims in China and that the Chinese became Muslims long before the Malays, receiving the teaching of Islam directly through the Prophet’s Companions. Whereas the Malays in Malaya (Malaysia and Singapore before their separation) who were previously Hindus, received Islam only during the glorious period of the Malacca Sultanate, especially throughout the 14th Century from the Arab and Indian traders, in which Malacca became an important base for Islam to spread to many other parts of South-East Asia.

    I enjoy reading your blog! Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I am adding you to my blogroll and hope that you do not mind.

  19. Salaam Wang Daiyu,

    I love your blog. I found it through Abdallah’s Stickley’s fascinating blog. Keep it up. I will definitely be visiting regularly.

    I just wanted to correct Zjay who wrote “In my country, most of the Chinese are unaware of the facts that there are many Chinese born Muslims in China and that the Chinese became Muslims long before the Malays”.

    I believe that most Chinese here (muslims and non-muslims alike) are aware of those facts. It is probably more accurate to say that the Malays are the ones who are unaware of this. Of course, I have no research to back me up ……. just my own experiences as a Chinese convert in Singapore (and the experiences of my other Chinese muslim friends here). :)

  20. Salam to Wang Daiyu and to Seeker94

    “In my country, most of the Chinese are unaware of the facts that there are many Chinese born Muslims in China and that the Chinese became Muslims long before the Malays”. …Hmm…Perhaps I might have offended you, Seeker94 with this statement. Thousand appologies, if I did.

    It was not my intention to hurt the feeling of others when I wrote the above statement. However, I cannot agree with you, Seeker94, that most Chinese here (muslims and non-muslims alike) are aware of those facts, just like you cannot agree with mine. This is because like you, my opinion about this matter is base on my real life experiences with relatively a large number of Chinese I met and interacted before in which, some of them were my friends and relatives.

    However, I am absolutely in total agreemeet with you that there are Malays who were unware of the facts. I had met Malays who were aware of the facts too. So I believe it will be more accurate to write…”In my country, there are several CHINESE AND MALAYS who are unaware of the facts that there are many Chinese born Muslims in China and that the Chinese became Muslims long before the Malays”. I hope this will enlighten you, seeker94. :) and Lesson learnt on my part to be more careful with my writings in the future.

  21. Salaam,

    I’m loving the blog, I’ve been looking for information about the history and culture of Islam in China for a while. Glad to see this blog up.

  26. Bhaijan, welcome to the blog. There isn’t that much information available on this subject on the net. Additionally there is not much information on Chinese converts in other countries also given that there is a huge Chinese diaspora in other countries also.

    Yeni Inayah, welcome to the blog and insha’Allah I will. :)

  27. Asslamu alaikum

    Masha’Allah what a great site. I am a first generation Chinese born American convert. I converted 1 month after Sept 11, and went to China for the first time 3 years ago. I was so happy to see the Masjids and Muslims in Bejing, Shanghai, SumJun, and in Hong Kong. Next time I really wish to visit more of Muslim China Insha’Allah. May Allah bless you for your efforts – I look forward to visting often.

    JazakAllah Khayran Katheeran

    Awsome blogg. Great and interesting stuff.
    The history of islam in china is such a rich and fascinating subject. Something that has been so neglected.

    Stuff such as the islamic connection to many chinese martial arts

    the islamic kingdoms that were established in the `17th and 18th century

    the history of guangzhou and the muslim sailors

    Inshallah. You have done a great service in helping make this information available

  33. I have always been interested in history. Brunei (where I am from) has ties with China since its early Sultans, in fact a Sultan of Brunei has his tomb there. I am trying to keep track of my family tree as my late grandma said that we have Chinese blood in the family. Chinese Muslims is an interesting topic. May Allah bless you for this blog. Keep on writing.

    wa’alai’kum’as’salam’wa’rahma’tullah’wa’barakatahu Aznii, Welcome to the blog sister. Its cool to see a Russian Chechan Muslim on the blog.

    wa’alai’kum’as’salam’wa’rahma’tullah’wa’barakatahu Hajar, Welcome to the blog and thanks for the comments. Insha’Allah I will be expanding the blog soon and focusing in some of the themes in depth. Hopefully this will be beneficial to Chinese and non-Chinese Muslims.

  45. Alhamdulillah. Without a doubt, that is just wonderful. Albeit the themes that I anticipate the most will be the assimilation of Islam in present China, the role of Muslims there and highlights on eminent Muslims.

  46. Assalam o Alikum,

    Nice web site here, keep up the good work guys!

    Any one know how i can marry a Muslim chinese sister?
    I’ve always wanted to marry a chinese girl, i find them very attractive.

    Sorry if its absoultely the wrong place to ask this or if its inappropriate or inconsiderate.

  47. Hajar, Yes but because of the cultural revolution assimilation has gone too far in some cases but that is a topic for a detailed post on some other day.

    wa’alai’kum’as’salam’wa’rahma’tullah’wa’barakatahu Ubaid, Well I can’t help you in that but best of luck. :)

    Thank you for making this site. I am glad to learn more about Islam in China and I am delighted to meet more Chinese Muslims. May I ask if you are ethnically Hui or a Han who converted to Islam?

    I am a Japanese man who converted to Islam. Islam is small in Japan, but more and more Japanese are starting to embrace it alhamdulillah.

    May Allah bless you.

  49. Assalamualaikum, found your blog while googling for ‘Islam in China’. I’ve always been intrigued with China’s history and have always been amazed about Islam in China.

    i have heard things, such as that muslims can’t send thier kids to quran class or enter the mosque before they turn 18. (this being in the uygur areas)
    imams need to teach “approved” khutbas and lessons and that they are trained and given license to teach by the CCP.

    insha’allah you can shed light on some of these things.

You proved me wrong. Thanks for your blog. With you I came to know about the Islamic China. Keep it up.

    I am pleased to discover your Blog. I have a burning desire to learn more about the Islamic Tradition in China. I live in the United States however my roots are originally from Southern France.

    I have never been able to discover the Origins of my family name “Shanteaux”; but find it interesting that there is a Port City in China called Shanto City. I’m interested in what the Chinese name “Shanto” means.

    It is also my Dream to find somewhere in Asia ( China, Malaysia, or Phillipines) where I could Study both Quran and Martial Arts together with an accomplished Hafiz’ul Quran. Do you know of any such teachers or communities.

  63. Assalamualaikum Brother Daiyu,

    I accidently found out about this blog while doing my coursework about Islam in China. Apart from studying and understanding the history of Islam in China, I also would want to know more on what is going on in the Islam community in China today, especially under the administration of Communist Party. And, what fascinated me more is that China was so special in the eyes of Rasulullah S.A.W.

    Looking forward to reading and listening to your new updates about Islam in China.

    Ma sha Allah, I am so happy I found this blog. I have been fascinated about Chinese Muslims for quite a while and I wanted to learn so much about the Muslims in China and the Chinese Muslims in general and the Culture (non-shirk good manners I meant).

    I have been trying to find websites but they were all in Chinese and when I translate, I mostly could not understand the translation, I just about get the general message but can’t string all the broken English together to make full meaning to me.

    I think I am gonna stay a while on this blog and see what I can get out of here probably will be able to link to more English websites about Chinese Muslims.

    Lots of Love from

    England…..

    Have you ever heard of historic cleansing? Well, that’s what happened in Malaysia. Would you believe that thais and siam are two different people?Thais are buddhists while siam are muslims. There had been a conspiracy between Christians and thais to wipe out siamese history. A holy war as you might say. Remember the Moghuls (Monggols) of India?

    Jazakallah for your wonderful and informative site, I have been following it for the past year and it always helps to know there are many chinese muslims out there.

    I am a Chinese (from Hong Kong) and a recent convert to Islam. I haven’t met many muslims who are Chinese and my family are against the religion, believing it to be very ‘un-chinese’. If only they knew about the long history of muslims in China!

    I’m also in the process of looking for a Chinese muslim name but haven’t any idea about this! Brother if you have some info on this pls let me know!

    Keep up the great work and may Allah bless you for your efforts!

  88. I think that we all Muslims carry the sin of not introducing Islam to China. Chinese people do not know a lot about Islam. Most of them do not believe or at least doubt about God. This may be sue to the education background they had at schools. We need to show them how much logical is Islam. They are almost isolated even in the current time. They do not have access to most of the websites people from the whole world have access to. This is a good and bad thing in the same time. This makes communication with them more and more difficult. We need to learn their language to be able to communicate with them perfectly. Examples for that , they do not have access to facebook, youtube and even wikipedia. Most of them do not use messengers famous in other countries like yahoo and MSN messengers. They use QQ. The most site visited in the whole world is Google and Yahoo , but they have other sites like 126.com and 136.com. I can not believe that Muslims leave Chinese without knowledge about Islam. China’s population is near 1/3 of the whole world’s population. However, how may websites talking about Islam has a Chinese version. If we want to introduce Islam to them , we must increase the number of published contents about Islam in Chinese. We need to go to the Chinese video sharing websites and like http://www.youku.com and http://www.tudou.com and upload movies about Islam. We can send messages to them introducing Islam through their QQ. But we can not leave them without any knowledge about Islam. Allah will ask us about them.

  100. By dramatizing 9/11 USA has posted Muslims as terrorists because it was his 3rd world war strategy in which no n Muslim get together against awful beast “terrorists’. he succeeded because almost all over the world where Muslims were being pressed and forced to abandon their religious practice find this a great opportunity and went in the lap of lap of so called peaceful nations. in response to nullify this, Muslims should especially where ever they in minority should prove themselves a peace loving people and should not start fighting but to slowly keep preaching their religion by love and harmony . this is what i would like to suggest for brother Muslims in china. especially because china have good relations with Muslim countries . he has not political or conquering attitude but only social , and economical relations .
