Lin Nu (林駑) was a Chinese scholar and merchant in the early Ming dynasty. He is the ancestor of the philosopher Li Zhi.
His father was Lin Lü (林閭). Around 1376 the 30-year-old Lin Nu visited Ormuz in Persia, converted to Islam, and married a Semu girl (“娶色目女”) (either a Persian or an Arab girl) and brought her back to Quanzhou in Fujian. This was recorded in the Lin and Li genealogy《林李宗谱》.
