emperor-hongwu

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.

The Monastery of Bahira

i have been hearing about this blessed tree in Jordan from my childhood but unfortunately never got a chance to see its photo or know the details.   i searched for today and got this info. So am sharing with you all about this miraculous fact

A recent research in Jordan leads way to yet another proof on legitimacy of Islam and its messenger Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم). For actual believers simple statements from Allah are adequate to believe the truth. But those who restrain from real faith might ask for solid evidences. Allah will show ample evidences on His realities time and again as a reminder to those who still disbelieve.

There are some people who are reluctant to believe the reality even after knowing the truth owing to their ego or pride. Another category of people will embrace correct faith by mercy of Allah upon viewing the evidences. Those who believe truth from Allah and set their lifestyle according to commands of Allah will be protected from pitiless hell fire and rewarded Paradise filled with immeasurable blessings.

So, humbly we introduce facts to those who might understand the truth and may by mercy of Allah turn to correct faith and religion.

“The people of the book know this as they know their own sons, but some of them conceal the truth which they themselves know.” Quran

Hundreds of evidences were given in ancient Vedas, Tourah and Bible (old Books) on appearance of the Last Messenger, Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و سلم)  Many verses can be seen stating name, native and characteristics of the Last Messenger even in recent day copies of old Books though those books had gone through many human interventions and adjustments.

Thus people who know the Last Messenger from Allah from old Books were in anticipation of Him. Here comes story of Bahira, a Christian monk lived in Basra, south of Syria and his zeal to meet the Last Messenger. He happened to watch a caravan of Arabian merchants from Makah passing by and a young boy is being shaded by clouds wherever he goes. He at once understood significance of the boy and invited the caravan for a banquet.

All members of the caravan attended the feast except the boy whom he was anxiously waiting. So he looked out and found the boy resting under a tree. As per his knowledge of Bible only a Prophet will rest under that tree. So he urged the caravan members to bring that boy to the banquet. He quizzed the boy and concluded that He is the Last Messenger explained in Bible. Bahira convinced the boy’s uncle Abu Talib to return to Makkah with the boy as Jews are in search for Him to harm.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Religion is very easy, and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded.” Bukhari:V1N38

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “O God, grant me life as a poor man, cause me to die as a poor man and resurrect me in the company of the poor…” His wife asked him why he said that, and he replied: “Because (the poor) will enter Paradise (before) the rich. Do not turn away a poor man…even if all you can give is half a date. If you love the poor and bring them near you..God will bring you near Him on the Day of Resurrection.” Al-Tirmidhi:1376

A  man thus addressed the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h):

‘O’ Messenger of God, who rightfully deserves the best treatment from me?’

‘Your mother,’ The Prophet said.

“Then who?’

‘your mother’ replied the Prophet

The man asked again.

‘Your mother’ replied the Prophet

‘Then who?’

‘Your mother’  said the Prophet

“The man asked once more,

‘Then who?’

‘Your father,’ said the Prophet.
