Les Chams, le visage de l’islam au Cambodge
Une communauté musulmane peu connue peuple depuis cinq siècles le royaume khmer. Répartis en 372 villages, les Chams et les Chveas, musulmans du Cambodge, représentent 4 % de la population du petit pays bouddhique, soit un demi-million de personnes. Malgré leur implantation très ancienne, ils n’échappent pas aux problèmes contemporains de l’islam minoritaire.

The Cham Imam Sann - A Threatened Tribe of Islam - Cambodian Village Scholars Fund
On the occasion of Imam San’s birthday each October, the sect that emerged from his early followers gathers in the former royal city of Udong, about 30 kilometers outside of the present capital of Phnom Penh, to honor his memory through prayer and offerings. The colorful mawlut ceremony reaffirms the sect’s privileged heritage and its continued isolation from the rest of the country’s Islamic community, which is dominated by a group known as the Cham.
The Imam San followers are the only group to remain outside the domain of the Mufti, the government-sanctioned leader of Islam in Cambodia – a status that was renewed by the government in 1988. Successive Imam San leaders, or Ong Khnuur, have held the prestigious title of Okhna, originally bestowed by the palace.
Cambodia’s estimated 37,000 Imam San followers live in only a few dozen villages spread throughout the country. Geography has reinforced the sect’s isolation, and the mawlut has become an increasingly important opportunity to forge friendships and – more essential to the survival of the community – marriages.
Financement issu du Golfe. Note : il est évident que pour les « vrais croyants » les islams de la périphérie asiatique sont assez largement hérétiques (voire nettement plus que ça si on est salafiste… (d’ailleurs l’un des articles mentionne la (très) mauvaise opinion émise par un salafiste de Phnom Penh…)) cf. la discussion avec @aude_v sur l’islam malaisien. Par exemple (on tombe très facilement sur eux) the Revival of Islamic Heritage Society (article de 2010)
