Twist of Faith: Islam in China (2009)

Episode 10
Only available in Canada, United States

This episode travels deep into central China, where very few people will visit. It’s in the Gobi Desert, and it’s where Islam was born in China. It’s a unique form of Islam, mixed with far-eastern culture. And the imams who have to deal with the population and the government tread a very fine line. They have to ease mistrust among the authorities and let Islam flourish within their area. And socialism has also brought a unique form of a clergy person in China – the female imam. Nowhere in Islam will you find a female clergywoman.
