Abstract: Singapore is a multicultural society with a population of about 5.1 million comprising mainly of people with Chinese, Malay, and Indian descent. This article focuses on a review of literature on the interface of religion and ethnic worldviews of the Malay-Muslim community in Singapore. In addition, it will utilize practice examples to show how these worldviews have implications for social work practice with the Malay-Muslim community particularly in the areas of health and family well-being. Help-seeking and the provision of help must acknowledge and use these worldviews as "strengths" in the delivery of social services. The article ends with an emphasis on the need for training in cultural competence for social workers in multicultural societies such as Singapore. © 2014 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
