Some of the English translation is plain wrong, though 99% is correct. I would to know who did the translation. Arilang talk 00:55, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

Have changed 协 to 協 to keep it consistently traditional. Big Brother Lee (talk) 15:32, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

eulogy to Allah[edit]

The first paragraph said that this is a eulogy to "Islam, Allah and Prophet Muhammad". The correct order would be, of course, "Allah, the Prophet, then Islam", but never mind. It seems as if the purpose of the Emperor was to highlight the good of what he understood was a major religion and a true path. Within that context, assuming he understood what monotheism is about, it sounds a little odd that he would praise Allah as one among other deities. Hence I have changed this line, and left "Islam and the Prophet". This problem is not unrelated to the shaky translation, where both "God" and "Allah" are used... but hopefully we will soon have an improved translation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MT Editor (talkcontribs) 23:33, 23 March 2014 (UTC)

What is meant by "controversial"?[edit]

The first line of this article says "The Hundred-word Eulogy (百字讃 bǎizìzàn) is a 100-character praise of Islam and the Islamic prophet Muhammad written by the Hongwu Emperor of China (r. 1368-1398)(controversial)". What exactly is controversial? That it was written by the Hongwu Emperor? Is the time of his reign controversial? Etc? If so, whatever it is, what reputable source expresses doubt on that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 107.19.189.87 (talk) 13:01, 27 January 2016 (UTC)
