"We chart the spread of Islam to China by starting with Guangzhou where the very first mosque was built during Tang Dynasty. Other locations such as Nanjing and Xian will follow as we trace the development of the Muslim people and how they preserve and interpret Islamic culture. At each location, against its exotic setting and unique environment, we feature a case study/ local personality whose family history is closely linked to the development of each community. At certain intervals, we also relate briefly back to what happened at the Islamic world in the west to give the viewers a timeline reference. These personalities are the Imam, calligrapher, scholar, Madrasah teacher, traditional trade person etc. Through interviews and reenactments, with occasional handheld camerawork, we bring the viewers into the fabric of their lifestyle and culture where there are many anecdotes, fascinating stories and customs to share. Various activities such as wedding, childbirth and even funeral are featured in different episodes. This program hopes to showcase the minority Muslim people in China via their daily lifestyle, customs and traditions. Despite their varied ethnicities and diverse cultural backgrounds, this program will probe deeper into their daily lives to understand and share insights with fellow Muslim under the same faith around the world. With the magnificent architecture and awe-inspiring sceneries of China as background, this program will also have great appeal to Muslims and non-Muslim alike."
