A Chinese Life of Islam - The Search for Identity
Paperback (TOP) 100 pages
"Most Malaysian Muslims of Chinese descent today are converts to Islam. They are a legacy of their own, having no ancestral links to any Islamic roots in China. Malaysian Chinese who come to Islam are from all kinds of backgrounds. Some received their education in Chinese, some in Malay, and some in English. Some have lifestyles influenced by their Chinese heritage, while some lean more towards the Malay culture, and some towards the Western way of life. This small work tries to address questions of identity faced by Malaysia's Chinese Muslim community."
