Aqil said:Religious philosophies varied from country to country in earlier times, Queen, but now Islam is the predominant religion of Africa...and this has definitely influenced some African-Americans who have become Muslims in this country...
Do you know its name?Sopdet said:Christianty and Islam are nothing more than variations of an even older spiritual tradition which is rooted in the Nile.
I agree.Sopdet said:Montheism has its origins within Kemetin cosmology, and many of the so-called concepts of Christianity spring from this very place.
Good question, Sopdet...Sopdet said:Why worship a pale imitation of an even older and more purer source?
Tru dat, Sopdet...none were Christian...Sopdet said:One more thing: Many of the slaves who came to America were Yoruba and practiced a religion called "Ifa."
There were many countries where Islam was widely accepted without force.Sopdet said:Islam was not forced upon West Africans, but many willingly converted to secure trade routes to the North African countries, which the Arabs did force Islam upon.
What is the source of your information?Sopdet said:The Arab invasion brought Islam to Egypt, and at this time Egyptians were mostly Christian, and soon, because of the heavy taxation, the Egyptians eventually converted to Islam to avoid getting taxed. Islam was forced upon the population of Egypt, but not Western Africa.
