Hui in China, Macau

Introduction / History
By the middle of the seventh century, Arab and Persian traders and merchants traveled to China in search of riches. In addition, in the thirteenth century the Mongols turned people into mobile armies during their Central Asian conquests and sent them to China. These civilians were expected to settle down at various locations to farm while maintaining combat readiness. As artisans, scholars, officials, and religious leaders, they spread throughout China, and some spread out into Hong Kong. However, most of the Hui Muslims in Hong Kong arrived within the last 100 years.

Where are they located?
The Hui people are most numerous in mainland China, but there are also pockets of them in other parts of the Chinese-speaking world including Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Macau. There are also Hui people in Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, and Saudi Arabia.

What are their lives like?
The Hui are forbidden to eat pork, but that prohibition is often overlooked by calling the meat "mutton." The Hui are renowned as sharp businessmen. A Chinese proverb from the 1800s states, "A Chinese awake is not the equal of a Hui sleeping."

What are their beliefs?
Almost all Hui are Sunni Muslims. They worship in thousands of mosques throughout China and Hong Kong. Islam first came to China via Abu Waggas, one of Mohammed's contemporaries. He preached in southern China and had the Beacon Tower built in memory of Mohammed in AD 627. In recent years, an increasing number of Hui have traveled to Mecca for the annual Haj pilgrimage.

What are their needs?
The Hui people need a spiritual hunger that will drive them into a quest for spiritual truth and for the true Savior.

Prayer Points
* Pray for the Holy Spirit to give the Hui people in Macau teachable and understanding hearts.
* Pray that a strong movement of the Holy Spirit will bring entire Hui families into a rich experience of God's blessing.
* Pray for Hui families to be drawn by the Holy Spirit to seek forgiveness and to understand the adequacy of Christ's work on the cross.
* Pray for teams of believers to do sustained, focused prayer for the Lord to open the hearts of Hui family leaders to experience God's blessing through a movement of family-based discovery Bible studies.
