Muslim Population
The question that a lot of people usually ask is “What is the Muslim population in Hong Kong?” and we’re sure you are probably asking yourself the same question; well the answer is “God knows!” There are some stats showing that there are 90,000 Muslims, while other research papers are saying that they’re over 220,000 – which we tend to believe is more accurate.

The total HK population is around 7,103,700 (till end 2011) out of which you have over 133,000 Indonesians – mostly Muslims – about 30,000 Chinese or Hui Muslims, over 20,000 from India-Pakistan and very few Africans & Arabs. There are also significant numbers of Muslims who are illegal temporary workers and asylum seekers. In recent years a growing proportion of asylum seekers are South Asians, in addition there are also African Muslims many of whom have come from Somalia. All in all, Muslims would make up 2.5 to 3% of the total population.

History
Islam came to be a living part of Hong Kong with the arrival of the British. Indian Muslims arrived as sailors, merchants, and soldiers and contributed to the formation of the new colony. They later became part of the military, police and prison service. When time went by, the Muslims were given land & Masjids (Mosques) were built and since then they became part of the amazing city of Hong Kong.

Here is a short documentary that was produced by TVB Pearl in January 2011 that sheds some light on Islam & Muslims in Hong Kong.
