I'm Emperor Yongle and I shall adopt your son and call him Zheng
I'm confused why would he want a devout Muslim?
No, please! Let him stay with us!
Emperor Yongle just wanted me as a slave! But I shall keep my beliefs.
We are going to embrace your religious beliefs.
Zheng He was born in 1371 as a boy in Yunnan China.
Soon he was adopted by Emperor Yongle while Zheng was a devout Muslim.
Since you are my close friend you earned my honor and I shall reward you by changing your name to Zheng He.
He was a slave when he was adopted but he kept his religious beliefs.
This is a great honor and i'm happy that Emperor Yongle chose me to set sail and explore.
Zheng He's religous beliefs became all embracing and eclectic in his adult hood which spread throughout Islam.
Soon he was one of the prince's closest advisors. He earned honor and the prince awarded him by changing his name to Zheng He.
Later in life he was chosen to set voyages to explore around the world and his voyages ships had carried hundreds of sailors on four decks and were almost twice as long as any wooden ship ever recorded.
