9781330257340: The Mohammedans of China (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Mohammedans of China

The customs of marriage, burials, etc., differ from those of non-moslems; religious ceremonies enter into all such events, as they do into practically all the affairs of life. Moslem girls are not given in marriage into Chinese families, but a Moslem may marry a wife of another religion, who is, however, expected to become a Moslem. At the marriage ceremony the aong recites passages from the Koran.

At funerals the body is wrapped in white bandages, and covered with a bottomless coffin and then conveyed to the grave, where - the body is interred the coffin is then taken back to the mosque, where it is kept ready for further use. Moslems have their own burial grounds distinct from others, if possible.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 24 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.1in.Excerpt from The Mohammedans of ChinaThere exist a few moniiinents which are referred to in support of the early-entry claim; the most famous of these is a stone tablet in a mosque at Si-an fu, and it is dated A. D. 742. The inscription on it says, among other things, The teaching of Mohammed prevailed at first only in the West and was not heard of in China until the time of the Emperor Kai Huang of the Sui dynasty (A. D. 581-601), when it entered China and gradually spread throughout the Empire. The evidences for and against the genuineness of this monument have been carefully weighed by Mr. Broomhall, who concluded that it is an extraordinary forgery, a conclusion in which I concur. I need not here enter fully into the reasons for this judgment, but just remark that the date given is prior to the Hegira, and before Mohammed had received his first revelations. As the stone claims to have been erected only 140 years after the events referred to, it is not easy to account for such a discrepancy of dates; it is most likely due to the copying of an erroneous calculation made centuries after the date claimed for the stone, and is therefore one of the reasons for rejecting the monument as a forgery. The mosque at Si-an fu is a very old one, and from Chinese writings it is known to have been repaired on several occasions, under the Sung dynasty in 1127 A. D. , under the Yiian dynasty in 1315 A. D, , and again under the Ming dynasty in the 14 th and 15 th centuries; it is probable that the monument referred to was erected on one of these occasions to perpetuate the supposed history; it is frequently referred to in Moslem books, and is considered by Chinese Moslems to be genuine. Another ancient monument is found in the ProphetRemembrance mosque at Canton; it is dated 1351 A. D. , and has a bilingual inscription in Arabic and Chinese, recording the rebuilding of the premises; there is a vague allusion to a Sahib who went to the East by command of the Prophet about 800 years previous to the inscription, which would take us back to some little time before Mohammeds birth, and is therefore valueless for our purpose. To continue with Moslem traditions before turning toother sources of information as to the entry of Islam into China, we next refer to the writings of Liu Chai-lien of Nanking, the most famous of Chinese Moslem writers, who, 200 years ago, after long preparation wrote The True Annals of the Prophet of Arabia.
