- When the cities in China were in the process of Urbanization, the traditional living style of Hui people in cities have been changed, such as Hui people who lived in Shuncheng Street which is the center area of Kunming city. There are a lot of Hui people lived here. Because of the needs of cities development, most of them have been left their original home and moved to other parts of Kunming city. The Muslim people were accustomed to the traditional living style which was living surround the mosque. Those Muslim people who were leaving their original living place have to move to the border areas of the Kunming city and living mixed with the other Ethnic groups' people. Thus, the Muslim's religious holy space has been fragmented. Due to this trend, the traditional religious holy space and ceremonies have been changed a lot. According to the generation and gender differences, the adaptive changes happened during the process of Urbanization. The article relied on the theories and research methods of Anthropology and Religion Studies to discuss the causes, the practices and the predicaments of Hui people who wanted to stick to their religious space in such fragmented worldly living spaces of Kunming city.
