Chinese Muslims gather in the Great Mosque of Guangzhou for fast-breaking dinner every evening.

 

Hundreds of Muslims from several nations have their fast-breaking dinner at the Great Mosque of Guangzhou, known also as Huaisheng Mosque (Memorial of the Holy Prophet).

 

Rebuilt many times over its history, Huaisheng Mosque is traditionally thought to have been originally built over 1,300 years ago, which would make it one of the oldest mosques in the world. It was named in memory of Prophet Muhammad.

 

Huaisheng Mosque plays a very important role in Muslim life in Guangzhou welcoming Muslims from all over the world.

According to China Muslims' traditional legendary accounts, Islam was first brought to China by Sa'ad ibn abi Waqqas. As reported by Al-Bayhaqi, the Islamic Prophet Muhammad pronounced: "Seek for knowledge even unto China". Chinese Muslims have been in China for the last 1,400 years of continuous interaction with Chinese society.
