Abstract: This research set outs to explore the exact level of the social aspect of integration between Chinese Muallaf and their Malay counterparts in Malaysia. It was sure that integration in social aspect becomes dilemma when the Muallaf convert from their own religion to Islam. It suggests that when these converts begin to practise Islam, their behaviour changes in line with the identity of the Malays. This is because Islam equates to Malay in the Malaysian context. Whilst they are welcomed by their Malay counterparts, it is nevertheless hypothesised that they may not integrate fully into the Malay culture.
