History Islam in Korea
The history of the entry of Islam in Korea dates back to Arab trade with Korea in 1024, when Arab traders began a large hundred-person trade mission to the Goryeo kingdom during the reign of King Hyeonjong. This opened the door for Central Asian traders and migrants to settle in Korea, then the Mongols established control in 1259. After the rule of the yuan dynasty, many permanent Muslim populations began to stand up with the creation of mosques called Ye-kung or ceremonial halls.
However, the emergence of the new Joseon dynasty, the Muslim population began to weaken because the government limited Muslims to practicing Islam. In 1427, King Sejong established a policy that ordered Muslim residents to remove their ceremonial headgear, close mosques and obey Confucian norms. And after this legalization, Korean Muslims disappeared from historical records for several centuries.
But before they disappeared from Islamic history, the Korean Muslim population created scientific works and Muslim culture. The first Korean world map, Kangnido is described by information obtained by Muslim traders. Huihui Lifa is an astronomical table, love originating from Arabic text is called zij Muslim. With this scientific work, Muslims are increasingly recognized in Korea.
