In the 1300s, the Chinese Hongwu Emperor wrote the “Hundred-word Eulogy”, which praised the characteristics of the Prophet Muhammad (S). Copies of it (like this one) were distributed to mosques throughout China. 

Translation:
Since the creation of the universe
God had already appointed his great faith-preaching man,
From the West he was born,
And received the holy scripture
And book made of 30 parts (Juz)
To guide all creations,
Master of all rulers,
Leader of the holy ones,
With support from the Heavens,
To protect his nation,
With five daily prayers,
Silently hoping for peace,
His heart directed towards Allah,
Giving power to the poor,
Saving them from calamity,
Seeing through the Unseen,
Pulling the souls and the spirits away from all wrongdoings,
Mercy to the world,
Transversing to the ancient,
Majestic path vanquished away all evil,
His religion Pure and True,
Muhammad,
The Noble High One.

Now you can go on, tell me about the glory we have these days.. ! Brothers and sister, its too easy to realize where we have come from, what are our values, and how we should be. May Allah swt return the days.
