  • Description

    THE ISLAMIC FAITH IS SPREADING STEADILY THROUGH THE EMBATTLED BUDDIST NATION OF VIETNAM. ALREADY IT HAS TAKEN ROOT IN THE RICH MEKONG DELTA RICEBOWL AREA AND THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR BRINGING IN THE FAITH ARE BELIEVED TO BE FROM MALAYSIA, WHICH IS A MOSLEM COUNTRY.

    MOST OF THE MOSLEMS ARE VILLAGERS WHO LIVE IN HOUSES BUILT ON STILTS. IN VIETNAM TODAY, THERE ARE ABOUT 7,800 FOLLOWERS OF ISLAM, LIVING IN AND AROUND CHAU DOC, WHICH BORDERS ON CAMBODIA.

    THREE MOSQUES HAVE ALREADY BEEN BUILT FROM WHICH THE MUEZZINS, OR MOHAMMEDIAN CRIERS, PROCLAIM THE HOURS OF WORSHIP. MANY HOURS ARE OCCUPIED BY STUDYING THE KORAN, THE MOSLEM HOLY BOOK.
