In the Picture above we can see the snowy mosque called An-nur (an-noor : a light) built by New Zealand Muslims. as we known, one of the Muslim must worship is shola Jum'ah (Friday prayer),  but in Wellington city take a place for friday prayer in Federation Building with 600 people of muslims. In south of New Zealand, a Muslims live at Christchurch and Dunedin city then they're done build a mosque in 1985.

Actually, the religion of Islam In New Zealand was born since 139 years ago which brought by gold diggers from China, they are give a big contribution of New Zealand development although they're  live under European race management.

New Zealand located in south east of Australia, occupied by Maori tribes just like Aborigin tribes in Australia. The migrant from UK is agree to seperated from Australia, but not get out from United Kindom. Now the queen became a symbol of the state with prime minister government system like Australia and Canada.

The most of Chinesse gold diggers labor who embracing Islam are working at Dunstan, Otago Gold Mine. They are deliberate work at New Zealand from China by European because they're known as the hard worker and cheap. Importing labor between Countries now changes from the days of Colonialism to imperialism in liberalism cover.

Islam come to New Zealand may bring a blessing under the mining exploration by UK slavery massiv. Chinesse Muslim labor not only work for mining, but they're spread the religion of Islam in colonialism ground, this is a blessing.

The History how Islam is born in this country it's just like in Java Indonesia. In 1900s 30 years after Muslims Ethnic from China comes, then Muslim from Gujaraties comes before they go to New Zealand.  At the same times, the conflict happened in East Turkey has opened the opportunities for Uighur Muslims to emigrate to New Zealand, like what their precursor do because of exploration by English people.

Three Gujarati Muslim families come from India to New Zealand, and besides come from an 60 European emigrants. After that Gujarati Muslims and East European Muslim make a cooperation and building Islamic centre. In 1990s, New Zealand Government has open the gates for emigrants by war. They are derived from Somalia, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Cosovo and Iraq.

In 2009, population of muslims in New Zealand only 40.000 people from many ethnics, such like India,  Pakistan, Bangladesh, India Fiji, Arabs, Malaysia and Indonesia. The others like East European, Turkey and Africa. Because of many ethnic in this country, at last they are seperated, for example: Indian ethnics make an organization called Anjuman Himayat Islam Organization just like the other. So that Saudi Arabia delegation had recommend them to be the one united.


After we read all of the information above, this is a proof that Islam keep on growing, Islam is the peace religion and can be hold on tight.
