  2. theveiledtsunami, Yes it is a very serene place. Its not just in the West but in many other parts of the world many people do not know about Muslims in China.

    darvish, Yes Chinese Mosques are very unique. The newer ones however look more like Middle Eastern Mosques.

    juhah, insha’Allah 🙂

    asqfish, Good idea. Someone should do a bibliography on “Chinese Muslims”

  4. Assalamu alaikum,

    I’m visiting Guangzhou at the end of April 2008 and I was wondering if there were Muslims in the neighbourhood. Not only for the halal food, but also for the muslim community and the mosque (looks very sereen the great mosque!)and other Islam related places. And so I came across this blog! Any advices for how to get in touch with muslims in Guangzhou?

  5. wa’alaikum’as’salam’wa’rahma’tullah, Shari Hasanradja welcome to the blog and best of luck on your trip. I wish I could help you regarding Guangzhou but unfortunately I do not know anyone there.

  6. Salam, alhamdulillah, Islam is flourishing in every corner of the world. I can’t imagine how strong iman was for sahabi (companion of the Prophet s.a.w) in spreading Islam. When Prophet order Saeed Ibn. Waqqas to go to China, he immediately agreed. Imagine at thet time no aircraft, no speed boats or car, he agreed to go to China to spread Islam. MasyaAllah. He perhaps went to China via Khyber Pass, the Silk Route on horseback, sometimes walked, and sometime had to climb rocky or mountainous traces of roads. How strong was his conviction and iman believe) in Islam. The result, now we see, China has the 10th largest Muslim population in the world ! MasyaAllah. Because of his strong iman like ‘rock’ the dark era for Hui, Uiygurs had changed. All companions of the prophets were so solid with iman, non comparable to us of today’s. May Allah bless Saeed r.a and place him in the highest degree of jannah (paradise). Amin
