First Ming Emperor of China’s poem praising the Prophet of Islam

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Here is a remarkable poem written by the first Ming Emperor of China, Zhu Yuanzhang (born 1328), celebrating the life and mission of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessing be upon him).

Since Creation of Universe
Heaven has already appointed,
Faith Preaching Giant Saint,
From West He’s Born,
To receive Holy Scripture,
With thirty part Book,
To guide all creations,
King of all Kings,
Leader of Holy Ones,
With Support from Divine,
To Protect His Nation,
With five daily prayers,
Silently hope for peace,
With heart toward Allah,
Empower the poor ones,
Save them from calamity,
See through the Unseen,
Pulling souls and spirits,
Away from all wrongdoings,
Mercy to the World,
Walking ancient Crowned Path,
Evil vanquished to One,
Religion Pure and True,
The Noble High One.

    Salaam Dear Brother and Sister:

    The Prophet (pbuh) was indeed a paragon for all to emulate, Kholifaur, and you are most welcome Safiyyah :)

    It continually amazes me that the virtues of the Prophet (pbuh) were so well known in the world, even unto China :)

    Ya Haqq!
