to Abeer23:

I believe you understand the meaning of 'Qing Jine Si' (mosque), but the correct pinyin should be 'Qing Zheng Si', and it should be pronounced as 'Ching jen sss' .

There several mosques in Shanghai:

the largest one is the 'Xiao Tao Yuan' (Small Peach Garden) Qing Zheng Si, where the Islamic Association of Shanghai located.

Others include: Hu Shi Qing Zheng Si, by the Xi Kang Lu Road

Hong Shou Fang Qing zheng si, by the Xin Hui Lu Road.

Because of the long history of Islam in China, there are many special Chinese words for the Islamic terminology.

Mosque as Qing Zheng Si,

Halal as Qing Zheng.

Interestingly, the names of five salat in China are also different from that of other parts of the world.

Subu as 'Bangbuda'

Zuhur as 'Pieshni'

Asar as 'Diger'

Maglib as 'Shamu'

Ashaar as 'Hufutan'.

Witr is same, as 'Witr'.

Back in 2002 I went to the Xiao Taoyuan mosque in Shanghai and I heard the imam reciting the Coran in  way I will never forget... Does someone know if the mosque has a phone number or email? I would like to know where he studied...
