Convivencia: Three Faiths in Harmony

The 800-long history of Muslim Spain weaves in and out of glorious civilizations and bitter rivalries, artistic blossoming and terrible plagues, cooperation between religious groups and bloody conflicts. Yet for such a long period of time, especially in medieval Europe, it is extraordinary that Al-Andalus experienced so many extended periods of peace, prosperity and partnership. …

   Good morning from one of #Alhambras secret towers, here relaxing a little to the view after fair wells to two groups currently enjoying a week long fully guided travel route in #Andalusia, #Spain.  #celebratingmercy #stopislamophobia 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.  @alfirdausensemble in #Granada #CelebratingMercy  #asSalaatu #jayruminal#tourism  #selamatdatang #Malaysia! #Welcome to #Madrid, #Spain!
