    Salam brothers.

    I'm new in this forum. I browsed the internet in order
    to know the origins of the appellation "Alkebulan" but
    didn't find enough information.

    According to one source:

    "
    ALKEBU-LAN is an ancient name for Africa, which originated
    from the African Moors. The Moors occupied northern Africa
    and southern Europe from approximately the 7th to the 15th
    century A.D. ALKEBU-LAN, which is ancient Arabic, means
    "The Land of the Blacks."
    "

    Is there sombebody who knows the real meaning of Alkebulan?
    Perhaps brother "Alkebulantaazar" who posted many messages
    in this forum could help. I think that once we'll be aware of our
    history and symbols/names, we will be able to build the new Africa.

    I need your help, brothers.

    Salam.

    sunjata

    Thanks a lot for the replies.

    Alkebulan, among the other names for mother Africa, has a
    strong vibration.

    I heard that Dr Ben Jochannan wrote some articles about this name.
    I haven't read these articles. And I don't know where to find
    them. Any idea on how to get them?

    I believe that we must restore the culture of Alkebulan, in order
    to create again in Africa, the mother of all civilizations, the
    beginning of a new civilization that will bring peace and humanity to the world.

    Let's ask to every brother the meaning and the history of
    Alkebulan. And let's share the knowledge.

    May God bless us, brothers.

    - sunjata

    Hi sister NNQueen.

    You are absolutely right and I must beg your perdon. I believe
    that sisters of Africa have a master role in this struggle.

    With love

    ...dont quote me, but I think Alkebulan may have something to do with the phrase "cradle of civilization".

    I think what you are looking for is the original name all Africans called their continent. This unfortunately did not exist.

    The continent as a whole was never called by the same name by the native inhabitants. This only came about when other countries recorded a name for its existence. Africans the continent all over had their own name for their own land, and that of the other tribes. A collective consciousness that all this land was one was never a part of the culture. As even the Egyptians, did not know the full extent of the continent and broke it up into the known lands and people. The name as it is today representing the whole continent can be attributed to a number of possibilities, seven of which have been endorsed as the most likely by the United Nations. Alkebulan is not one of them.

    There is an extract of these seven in the below link.

    http://www.destee.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14540&highlight=word africa origins

    The real origin of the word is Arabic. AL is old Arabic for Black as in Algeria, which means black area.
    Alkebulan basically means Black land, or as some prefer to translate it land of the black.
