Cham Bani also known as “Localized Shi'a Cham Muslims in Vietnam”, “Bani Islam” Noseworthy, William


The Cham Bani are a small religious community in Vietnam. They practice a localized form of Shi'a Islam that has been adapted throughout the centuries to some include Sunni influence. They are also influenced, to an extent, by Cham Hindu (Ahiér) practices, Shamanism, and may contrast themselves with Cham Hindus, or Cham Animists.
