Abstract

This study discusses the involvement and activities of the Chinese Muslim community in Malaysian socioeconomic and political scenarios. It also highlights the early history of the Chinese Muslim community since their early arrival in Malaysia till the present. This study seeks to identify the dakwah role and activities of the Malaysian Chinese Muslim Association (MACMA) for the Malaysian society. This qualitative study finds that the Chinese Muslim community is involved in businesses such as restaurants mostly operating in the Klang Valley. Other than that, they work as professionals, teachers and administrators. In the political field, there is no single organization or specific body which represents the community, however, there are a few individuals directly involved such as Anuar Tan in Parti Islam se-Malaysia (PAS). At the same time, MACMA as an NGO is seen as the main initiative in representing the community, specifically in matters related to welfare and preserving their identity.
