Hui in China
The Hui are the largest and most widespread of China’s Muslim minorities, and are widely scattered throughout the country. Their ancestors are largely Arabs, Persians, and Mongols. One of the worst genocides in history occurred when one million Hui were massacred between 1855 and 1873. Although there are a few scattered believers, this may be the largest people group in the world without a single known fellowship of believers.
The Hui have a long history of strong commitment to Islam. In recent years an increasing number of Hui have traveled to Mecca for the annual Haj pilgrimage. In contradiction with the Qur’an, Islam teaches them that the Bible has been corrupted.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to stir many of the strong Han Chinese believers to lovingly share the gospel with the Hui households living among them.
