A Poem by the 14th century emperor of China about the Prophet Muhammad


 

A poem written by Hong Wu, the emperor of China who established the Ming Dynasty in the 14th century, written in praise of the Prophet Muhammad. (Emperor Wu was not a Muslim).

Since the Creation of the Universe
Heaven has already appointed,
This Faith Preaching Great Saint,
… From the West He was Born,
To receive the Holy Scripture,
A book of thirty parts,
To guide all of creation,
Leader of all Leaders,
Greatest of all Holy Ones,
With Support from Above,
To Protect His Nation,
With five daily prayers,
Silently hoping for peace,
With his heart toward Allah,
Empowering the poor,
Saving them from calamity,
Seeing through the Unseen,
Pulling souls and spirits
Away from all wrongdoings,
Mercy to the World,
Traversing the Ancient Path,
Vanquishing the Evil One,
His Religion Pure and True,
Muhammad,
The Noble and Exalted One.
