Abstract

This study discusses the historical development of the Muslim Chinese society in Malaysia since the early relations between the Malay World and China to the present time. The objective of this study is to identify the early history of the Chinese arrival in the Malay World. Furthermore, it is a study of the background of the Chinese Muslim community and relations, such as trade and diplomatic ties, between the Chinese and the Malay World, particularly during the time of the Malay Sultanate of Malacca. This study also highlights the development of the Chinese community since migration during the British colonial days to date. Using the qualitative method, this study finds that the relation between China and the Malay World had existed before the birth of Christ. In addition to the local Chinese Muslim community, there are original Chinese Muslims from China, descendants of those who had settled in Malaysia for a long time, such as in Trengganu, Penang and Sabah. Besides that, there are also Chinese Muslims who come to Malaysia for social visits, educational or business purposes.
