A Chinese Emperor's Poem About Prophet Muhammad (SAW) by golpen(m): 1:54pm On Nov 10, 2013
Hong-Wu (also known by his given name Zhū
Yuánzhāng) was the Emperor of China between
1368 – 1398 CE. He was the first Emperor of the
Ming Dynasty, leading an Army that conquered
the country and defeated away the Mongol-led
Yuan Dynasty.

Despite being a non-Muslim, Hong-Wu ordered
the construction of several mosques in Nanjing,
Yunnan, Guangdong and Fujian. He rebuilt the
Jinjue Mosque in Nanjing and large numbers of
Hui (Muslim Chinese) people moved to the city
during his rule.
He had around 10 Muslim generals in his army,
including Chang Yuchun, Lan Yu, Ding Dexing,
Mu Ying, Feng Sheng and Hu Dahai. In addition,
Hong-Wu’s spouse, Empress Ma, descended from
a Muslim family while he was originally a
member of a Muslim rebel group led by Guo
Zhixin.

Emperor Hong-Wu wrote a 100 word eulogy
praising Islam, Allah and the Prophet
Muhammad which he had placed in the mosques
which he ordered to be built.
The eulogy is in the form of a poem, each verse
containing 4 words (characters) and 4 syllables.
In the translation below I have strayed away
from trying to keep the 4 word per verse
translation in favour of a more literal
translation which conveys the full meaning in
flowing English.

The One-Hundred Word Eulogy:

Since the creation of the Universe,
God had decreed to appoint,
This great faith-preaching man,
From the West he was born,
He received the Holy Scripture,
A Book of thirty parts,
To guide all creation,
Master of all Rulers,
Leader of Holy Ones,
With Support from Above,
To Protect His Nation,
With five daily prayers,
Silently hoping for peace,
His heart towards Allah,
Empowering the poor,
Saving them from calamity,
Seeing through the darkness,
Pulling souls and spirits,
Away from all wrongdoings,
A Mercy to the Worlds,
Traversing the ancient majestic path,
Vanquishing away all evil,
His Religion Pure and True,
Muhammad,
The Noble & Great one.
