    Have you ever wondered what religious practices our African ancestors followed before arriving in America? While many observed indigenous tribal beliefs, Islamic historians estimate that between 7% and 30% of African slaves brought to America were Muslims. As a classic example, in the television series Roots, Alex Haley portrays his Black immigrant ancestor as a follower of Muhammad. Historians recognized this interesting and little-known fact by identifying historic American texts written in Arabic; pinpointing the location of prominent slave-recruiting grounds in Africa; identifying Muslim-given names amongst American slaves; and uncovering personal accounts of prominent Islamic African-Americans.

    At the time Columbus discovered America, Islamic empires held greater power in the Western world than European kingdoms. They controlled the overland trading routes that transported oriental goods from the Far East to Europe, ruling from India to West Africa. According to Allan D. Austin in African Muslims in Antebellum America, Islam had penetrated areas such as Senegal, Timbuktu, and the Lake Chad area in Africa by 1100 AD. From these localities westward to the Atlantic Ocean, slavetraders kidnapped the majority of their victims. The rise of European maritime trade in the 16th and 17th centuries triggered the decline of Islamic political supremacy and introduced new nations as world leaders.

    Historians have identified many authentic Arabic texts written in the U.S. before the Civil War. Many of these manuscripts have been reproduced in the books listed below. When translated, most turn out to be memorized sections of the Qur'an (Muslim holy book), revealing slaves' struggles to maintain differing religious beliefs in an oppressive Christian nation. These writings also reveal high levels of education attained by the authors in Africa prior to enslavement and forced emigration. Unfortunately, slavery has largely silenced our present knowledge of these educated people. It is known that slavemasters often placed Muslim slaves as supervisors over their fellow bondsmen.

    How can you know if your ancestors were Islamic? Many people may never be able to prove this fact. One way to determine an ancestor's religion is by studying his or her given names. Many slaves were forced to accept Christian names; however, some kept their Muslim names. Austin discovered men living in the Antebellum South named "Abdul al-Rahman," "Bilal Muhammad," "Salih Bilal," "Umar ibn Said," and "Yarrow Mahmoud," who clearly maintained Islamic names. One of these men, Abdul al-Rahman, after gaining his freedom, went as far as to meet President John Adams on his trek back to his native Africa. An important concept to keep in mind is that when non-Muslim American scribes phonetically spelled Islamic names, what they wrote may show little similarity to actual spellings. For example, Austin believes that a runaway slave named "Osman," was actually a misspelling of the more common Muslim name "Uthman."

    Although the American system of slavery largely silenced the religious practices of African-American Muslims in the past, current research is shedding new light on this interesting topic.

    Hmm... interesting post, Brother Aqil. However, sadly, most of us cannot trace our roots back that far. The earliest I can trace my family history back is to the early 1800s, and by then, they were Christians, I guess. We are unable to find any older records.

    Blessed Love, even if you can trace your tree back to a family member who was a muslim, fact is if he was a muslim, it was imposed upon him just like western Christianity was imposed upon our greats, now a days. remember Arabic is not African, it is Arab. Mohammud is Arab, not African, Islam was taught to the Arabs buy an Ethiopian name Bilal. what Islam, the religin is, is what the scribes wrote down listiong to Mohammud speak about what the Angel Gabrial/Bilal taught him. Your supposed to be the African Brother are who Mohammud worshiped and taught to reflect to his people. fact is your culture is before Islam, you are not a muslim, you are a Ethiopian/African. Just like our ansesters were forced to take christian names, before that we were forced to take Arab names and converted to islam to be a muslim. There are many Black Muslims, some who declaire that they are Arab and not African. Religion in it self is a slave master, including Islam and Christianity. So you have a pre-arab name too, don't be brainwashed by islam, ,if you are african, islam is for the arabs, but for you it looks out for their interests first. Blessed Love

    Hmm.... so what is the "true" religion? Is there even a such thing? I can't find most of my ancestors.... The ones I can find were Christians, as I've stated before.

    Prophet Chris:

    An area of history that still remains in the shadows of today’s ingrained and accepted tale of Western dominance is the history of African Muslims. The tribulations and triumphs of African Muslims translates into a rich and vibrant history - a past of honor and a future of hope. From their explorative voyages in early centuries, their cultural assimilation under the scourge of slavery in the U.S. and the Caribbean, to their triumphs as re-defined citizens in today’s world, African Muslims - today African-Americans, African-Canadians and brothers and sisters in the Caribbean - have a past of which to speak.

    The infamous Christopher Columbus is credited with “discovering” America. Of course, ‘discover’ implies that the land Columbus landed on in 1492 had never been explored before, was devoid of any civilization and the people devoid of any sophistication. This is simply not true. Before Columbus stepped in his boat, Native Americans had 2000 separate languages, a distinctive array of religions, a system of interaction with nature and other human beings, and by 1492, the entire northern third of America was already occupied, and hence already “discovered” by hunters.

    The notion that Columbus, if not the first person to discover America, was the first person to make contact with the indigenous people, is another common myth. There is extensive and irrefutable evidence that points to the idea that ancient North American culture had been in contact with voyagers from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean before Columbus. They spread knowledge amongst each other, influenced each other and exchanged products. Although more research is needed, evidence such as sculptures, oral history, eyewitness accounts, Arabic documents, coins and inscriptions serve as undeniable claims to African Muslim contact with Natives in the Americas as early as the 7th century AD. This remains a hidden and often neglected part of history that needs further research and clarification, but definitely points at undeniable possibilities.

    Mandinka voyages - Muslim explorers and merchants from the West African Islamic country of Mali - were significant and extravagant. In 1324 AD, Mansa Musa, the ruler of Mali, was en route to Mecca when he informed the Governor of Cairo that his predecessor had taken two voyages into the Atlantic Ocean to discover what lay beyond. Shihab al-Din al-‘Umari, an Arab geographer, reported from his informant that the Mandinka monarch’s voyages reached at least the North Equatorial or the Antilles current, which from the West African coast would lead straight to the Americas.

    Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick, in his book, Deeper Roots, importantly relates that, “examination of inscriptions found in Brazil, Peru, and the United States, as well as linguistic, cultural and archeological finds offer documentary evidence of the presence of these Mandinka Muslims in the early Americas.” There is even extensive evidence of Mandinka cities of stone and mortar that were seen by early Spanish explorers and land pirates. A document written by a land pirate from Minas Gerais in 1754 relates the remains of a city near a river in Minas Gerais had remarkable buildings, obelisks and statues. Columbus quite obviously arrived in the Americas a little late, but just in time to rake in the credit.

    It seems almost unbelievable that a culture and heritage full of such vibrancy and power remains hidden in the dust and shadows of other histories that are commendable, yet easily refutable. Perhaps, as the 16th century rolled in and brought the scourge of exploitation and the plague of slavery with it, the greatness of African empires was slowly forgotten - or perhaps just brushed aside. When the Spanish crown granted the right to buy slaves in Africa early in the 16th century, the stage was set for centuries of exploitation. Millions of Africans were taken from the shores of West and Central Africa and transported to the Americas and the Caribbean, where they were forced to spend their lives slaving for others. Early in the 17th Century there was a rapid growth of sugar plantations, which resulted in an increased demand for slaves, which in turn transformed Africa into what Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick calls the “chief victim of exploitation.” What many Muslims, whether they have an African heritage or not, and what many African-Americans and African-Canadians - whether or not they’re Muslim - fail to realize is that 30% of slaves taken from Africa and brought to the Americas were Muslim.

    Islam had flourished and developed in Africa before and during the Atlantic slave trade. Muslims in Africa were literate, having been educated in the Arabic language, and were culturally connected with other literate nations within Africa as well as beyond - in the Mediterranean and the Middle East. When ships began transporting African people to the Americas and the Caribbean, a culturally diverse group of Africans lay side-by-side in the dark pits of English, Spanish, French and Dutch ships. Muslim tribes included the Mandinka, Fula, Susu, Ashanti and the Hausa.

    One of the most popular symbols of the Muslim slave is Kunta Kinte, immortalized in Alex Haley’s saga, Roots. Using oral tradition as a basis, Haley traced back his lineage to Kunta Kinte, an African from the Mandinka tribe who was kidnapped from his village and brought to the U.S. in the mid-1700’s. Haley traces Kinte’s life from his birth in the village of Juffure, to his struggle to live in the U.S. as a slave. Kinte’s struggle to maintain his culture and religion as a Muslim, reflects the struggle of scores of Muslim slaves in the Americas. The fact that Haley embarked upon a journey to discover his roots, reflects perhaps the success of the millions of Africans like Kinte who would not give up their own roots.

    Despite the extremely restrictive policies - among them The Code Noir of 1685 - designed to destroy the will of slaves, control every meaningful aspect of their lives, and convert them to Christianity, Muslim slaves in the Americas and the Caribbean fought both external and internal battles to keep their roots alive. A clear example of Muslims maintaining their faith in Islam can be found in Bryan Edward’s work, The History, Civil and Commercial of the British Colonies in the West Indies written in 1794. He describes the practices of “an old and faithful Mandingo servant”:

    "He has not forgot the morning and evening prayer that his father taught him. In proof of this assertion, he chants, in an audible and shrill tone, a sentence that I conceive to be part of the Qur'an...'La illa, ill illa.'"

    "La ilaha illah Allah" ("There is no god but Allah") is an assertion of faith, and proof that African slaves in the Americas and the Caribbean did continue to carry their faith with them. There are numerous other examples of white slave masters recording the peculiar practices of their slaves, among them the ability of many slaves to read and write in Arabic. Although African Muslims tried to maintain their faith, the suppressive and debilitating laws of slavery forced most to conform to the wills of their masters, and assimilate themselves into the cultural norms of the society in which they lived. Islam, after generations became a distant memory, and in most cases it ceased to exist at all.

    But perhaps the efforts of African Muslims are not fruitless. Like Alex Haley and his Roots, the search for roots - of heritage and beginnings - is becoming more widespread by many African-Americans, African-Canadians and Caribbeans of African descent. The American Muslim Council states in its Zogby poll of August 2000 that 23.8% of American Muslims are African-American. Resurgence in the number of people reverting to Islam has also become apparent in recent years, and is coupled with the rise of Muslim organizations. Although much of the Muslim population in the Americas can be credited to immigration, the individual journeys taken by people like Alex Haley to revisit their heritage attests to the strength of African Muslims remaining stoic in the face of adversity, and passing whatever knowledge they had of Islam on through the centuries...

    Exactly, before Europe(whites invaded and colonized/converted Africans into there religion, before that the Arabs invaded colonized/converted some of us into Muslum. (note: Ashanti is not Muslum) It was teh Arabs that sold us into slavery, along with there black servents that have been brainwashed to think they are Arabs (just like in Sudan right now). worship of other races is one of the major factors of what got us in slavery here. and it is still going on, we were someone befor kunta kinte, Blessed

    The two most often cited cases of Arab involvement in African slavery were unusual moments in an otherwise mutually productive interaction. Both were in the 19th century.

    One involved Muhammad Ali Pasha, a Westernizing despot who ruled Egypt in the first half of the 19th century. Just as the slave trade was being outlawed in Euro-American metropolitan areas, Ali Pasha picked up the slack by engaging in slave expeditions to the southern Nile region, the Sudan.

    The other instance involved the Sultan of Oman in a similar scheme, this time to harvest spices on plantations he and his European partners ran off the coast of East Africa.

    But these sad moments in Arab-Muslim-African history are not representative of the thousand-year contact between African and Arab cultures in the context of Islamic civilization. They are projected back in history, using selective and at times spurious evidence, to build a case for alleged centuries of Arab slavery, and for confusing them with the forms of slavery practiced by Europeans. This unfortunate connection seems to have gained a great deal of credence in recent years.

    For a more recent example, an emotionally charged and powerful comic-book history of slavery, The Black Holocaust for Beginners, retells this myth with particular force. Combining the politicized myth with a favorite Western fantasying of Islam, this comic includes a drawing of a turbaned Arab man raping a Black woman while his veiled harem looks on. This unlikely image is presented as the sum total of centuries of Arab/Muslim/African co-existence.

    Modern Western, supposedly "objective" scholarship on Africa and Islam redefined and reduced the legacy of a long and mutually prosperous relationship between Arabs, Muslims and Africans by harping on the 19th-century Arab involvement in the slave trade, which itself resulted from Western colonization. This emphasis, repeated incessantly, distorts the Islamic impact on - and contribution to - Africa. It was designed to obscure the memory of many centuries of peaceful Muslim trade relations, migrations, and intermarriages in Africa - not to mention the development of a vibrant local African Islamic civilization...

    May I Add My Two Cent ?

    Let me speak to You of Who You Are and Your Ancient Heritage , Of Retracing .
    Our - Stroy , Not His - Story , It takes Us Back to the Ancient Ones Tarite ( Ptah )
    Later called Mitsrayim < Aramic > Egypt Which was also called Khami ( Kemet ) By the ancient ones . Now called Egyptians , inhabited by impostors or Mulatto , Egyptians . Some Sumerians migrated Westward under the Name Mitsrayim , And lived and Mixed with The Tarites as Nuwbuns . They became Kham from Ham , Cush from Kish Egyptian from Mistrayim , Libyan from Phut , These names Lock You Into Biblical History if you believe and accept the Bible as fact . Kemet is from Kham , or Ham Genesis5 ; 32 meaning ' Black Skinned '' The Greeks called The Land Of Cush , Ethiopia , Originally from Aksum . The Arabs called Balad As - Sudan , Sudan From Sawdeh ( Outer Field ) . The Greek called Mitsrayim , Egypt , from Tar ( Ptah ) . They all were in The Land of Nubia , from the original Nuba , The Seat Today Of Uganda Which Encompasses The Whole of that Continent . We Existed On The Planet Earth Thousand Of Years Before The Bible And Quraan . Both of these Writeing are New Information Compared To Our Records Kept In Hieroglyphs , Which are also found on The Walls Of Central And South America And Cuneiform . A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words Just LQQk On The Walls Of Sumeria And Egypt , Even Today , LQQk at the face of the Statues in these Americas of the Olmes and The Truth of these Indigenous people of the planet reveals itself to you as Nuwbuns . It's The Skin Color Of The People , Not The Sands On The Shores Of The Niles , Which The Greeks Claimed . The Seed Of Noah ( Utnafishtim ) In The Gilgamesh Epics , One Of The Tablets From Which The Bible Eas Plagiarized Tells You That Noah's Family After The Deluge Spread Across The Earth So Some Of The Sumerians . As The Family Of Noah , Or Noah's Sons Moved Westward . There They Met And Mixed With Little People Referred To As Tarite Or Ptahites , Evolution Produced From Genus - Homo . To Homo Erectus And Then Divine Intervention Of Nommos . Or The Neteru . Produced A Superior Group Of Little People Called Nuwbuns , Whom The Family Of Noah Mixed In With And Formed Egypt . The Sixteen Dynasties Of Egyptian History Made Public Today Is The Last Of The Great Kingdoms , Not By Far The First Our Story As Recorded In The Ruins Of Egypt Today Was The End Point Of Some Of Our Greatness Was Made Possible By Khufu Removing The Immigration Law And Allowing An Invasion Of Other Race To '' Tie Into The Vine '' And Literally Claim To Be Egyptian , To The Point Where They Literally Replaceed Woolly Haired Dark Skinned People's Images . They Fabricated Fales Replicas That House The Museums And Even Repainted The Art Works In The Tomb And Antiqued '' Them To Make Them LQQk Authentic .
    So that You would see what You thought were true images of our Ancestors , when in fact they are forgeries like The Faces Of Nefertiti which they changed one of the name that Latin Speaking People , Be It Portuguese , Castilian , Spanish , Referred To Us As , Is Morenos Which Gives You The Word Moor . And They Borrowed The Greek Word Negeer ( Acts 13 ; 1 ) And It Became Negra , Both For Two Form Of '' Black '' Negra The Color , And Morenos The State . So To Them The Original Moors , Are Those Of The Black Olive Tone Hue Or Nub
    ( Dark Brown ) Who Dwelled In Ham Or Kemet And Aksum , Or Ethiopia And Even As Far As Al Ghor , Or Arabia. All Of These Land Belong To The Nuwbuns / Nubians Or Moor They will say that Nuwba ( Nuba ) Comes from the word '' Gold '' When in fact Nuba Is '' Dark Brown '' And Neba In Nubian mean '' Gold '' The Nuwbuns ( Nubuns ) Didn't Speak Nubian , They Soke An Ancient Cuneiform Language Of Syretic Cu****e , Aramic Dialect That Broke Off From The Tongue Of The Beings Who Visited Them From The Star Called Nuwaubic . Which Later Became Cuneiform . A Latin Word '' Cunieus ''Meaning '' Wedge '' Merely Describing The Screipt . Not The Spoken Language . It Gave Birth To All Of What Is Called The Semitic Language Today . Genesis 11 ; 7 Clearly Point Out That Their God Spoke A Different Language From Them For He Conversed With His Constitutes In Heaven Before Coming To Earth And The Koran 44 ; 58 , Supports This By Stating That The Koran Was Revealed To Muhammad In Muhammad Own Tongue , Not Allah's .. And In Ancient Sudan , Nuwba ( Nuba ) was the name of a Deity , Who came from The Skies , The Nuwbas or Nubuns were the Original people and that was their Name not Nubians , They created the Nubian Tribes or Nubians by Marrying Jaaliin , Also Spell Jalin , by the Guhayna , Nomadic Pale Arab Tribe , Who Invaded Sudan from the Sinai Area Along With The Shaigiyya . They Mixed In With The Nuwbuns , Became Beja , Hadendawa , Or Fuzzy Wuzzy , A Mixture Of Israel Who Crossed From The Tribe Of Judah Over And Settled Along The Rivers . They Too Became Arabicized By The Arab Ivasions To Created A Melting Pot Of Arabicized Nuwbuns Who Later Converted To The Islaamic Religion And Became Known As Nubians And Mixed With The Donogla Or The Danaakil Of That Area Giving You The Variety Of Races . That Inhabit Sudan Today , And Are Now Called Sudanese Or Nubians . Mix Brown To Light Skin , Wooly To Curly To Even Straight , Hair . However . If You LQQk At Abdur Rahman Al Mahdi , The Son Of The Mahdi Of The Sudan , Or His Son Al Haadi Al Mahdi . Who Are Of The Tribes Of Donogla . Called Dongola . Beja , It Is Plain To See That They Have Nuwbun Feature And Wooly Hair . Unlike What They Portray As The Sudanese Today Who Has Curly To Straight Hair And Aquiline Features . Which Are Arabacized From Pale Desert Arab < Quraan 9 ; 97 > Invasions . Down on into Yemen You had Sabeans
    Quraan 10 ; 7 , Who Were The Queen Of Sheba's '' Makeda '' 1Kings 10 ; 1 ..Poeple andthey also were Mixed in with the tribes of the Son Of Jacob When The Broke Up Into Two Part , Israel To The North , Ruled By Solomon , And And Judah To The South , Ruled By Adonijah Both Being Son Of David , The Great King Of Israel Judah , To The South Called Judah had the Sons Benjamin , Dan and The Sister Dina , The 12th Tribe . In Fact Yemen Is Short For Benjamin Meaning '' Son Of The Right Hand , '' The 8th Son Of Jacob Genesis35 ; 18 . Being Sheba was a Queen whose name was Wakeda and Female Deity Worship was always related to the moon , while male deity worship was related to the Sun , The people of Southern Arabia worshipped the mood deity Dina , or Dinah from the Female tribe , The Ishtar , Isis , Aphrodite , The Greek Bandice , diety of the moon Arianrod , Celtic , Deity Of The Moon , Chandra or Candra in Indian , deity of The Moon , Chang - O , Also know as Heng - O In China , Deity Of The Moon , Khonsu , Engyptian Deity Of The Moon , Naja , Spirit Of The Moon Gleti , Dahomey , Deity Of The Moon , Nannar Sin , The Sumerian Deity Of The Moon Ixbalnque , Mayan Deity Of The Moon Tsuikwomy - No - Mikoto , Japanese Deity Of The Moon UI, Scottish Deity Of The Moon And The List Of Moon Worship Goes on and on many of the Cultures Switched it from the female to the male but still it Remain Moon , Dig The Move ;....
    They have Misguided you up to this day , They , Meaning So - Called Egyptologist Do not know the Home , origin , or Early History of The Ancient Text Or Where Did The Ancient Book Of The Dead Originate , I Am here to inform you that the oldest form or Edition of the Book Of The Dead That They Have , Supplies No Information Whatsoever as to the period when it was compiled or who it was given to . Or they choose to hide or deny the fact that The Ancient Book Of The Dead Is An Inspiration That Was Given To Ankh Aton . The Son Of Amenhotep lll And Teye From The Heavenly One Anu . There are Pyramid Text , Which Were Inscribed On The Wall Of The Mir ( Prramid ) , It Was The Source Of The Modified Coffin Text Which As The Name Implies Was Found In The Sarcophagus Of The Deceased The Pyramid Text Deal More With The Spiritual Aspect Of The Deceased Although It Mentions The Importance Of The Body Being Kept In One Piece . There Were Also Other Texts Besides The One That Are Conidered Funerary Texts From The Book Of The Dead . The Book Of The Dead Was Not The Last Scroll Written A Book Called The Book Of Breathing Was Used Along With It Or As A Supplement To The Book Of The Dead And Continued To Be Used During The Roman Era . Which Was After The Reign Of Cleopata The 7th .. Ankh Aton Who Was The Pharaoh Of Egypt In The 18th Dynasty Reigned From 1367 - 1340 B.C. With His Wife Nefertiti ..
    Ankh Aton .. I Must Emphasize When You Read This E mail Of The '' The Book Of The Dead Coming Forth By Day '' You Will Realize That With A Little Research , You Can Dispell The Myth And Prove With Fact That The Egiptian Did Not Take Much Heed To Spook Gods Or Ghost . Their Worship Of More Than One Deity Was Misinderstood As Idol Worship , When In Actually It Was A Sign Of Respect Towards Nature And Their Noble Descendant . For Example '' Amun Ea '' or Amon Re '' Who Is Equivalent To The Ancient Sumerian Deity Murdoq , And Was The Husband Of Mut ;,,, Amun Ra's Symbol Is The Sun , The Fire Of Nature As For Mut . She Was A Reflection Of Amun Ra's Light , Her Symbol Of Course . Was The Moon Amen Ra And Mut Are Symbolically The Sun And The Moon They Adopted Amun And Mun Adopted Khons And Montu And Because Of His Mother . He Was Also A Deity Of The Moon . Khons Or Khensu 's Symbol Was The Falcon Head .
    These Beings Are Human Deities That Are Your Descendant , And Ancestors Not Spooks Or Ghost The Egyptian Use The Word Neter For Male Deity And Netert For A Female Deity Which When You Will Find Used Throughout The Book Of The Dead Amon Ra Is Not The Actual Sun Itself Which Is 93 Million Miles From The Earth ;....

It Is The Same Story , Hagar Was Wandering In The Wilderness In Search Of Water For Her Son El Roi Heard Her And Sent Gabriel To Relieve Her Stress . In Egypt Aset ( Isis ) Was Distressed In The Swamps Where She Was Hiding , With Her Son Har ( Horus ) Until He Was Old Enough To Avenge His Father's Death , By Neby ( Set , Seth ) .

    What Is The Original NameFor Africa ?

    Before Africa Became What You Know It As Today , Before The Division Of The Continents And The Migrations , Africa And Arabia Today Were Once One Land Mass Known By Various Names Before Becoming Two Separate Continents . This Whole Land Mass Was Orginally Called Ganawah Or Ganawa In Greek . Which Is The Hebrew Word For Garden And In Ashuric / Syriac / Arabic Its Junayna . In The Bible . You Will Also FindThat This Great Land Mass Was Know As Havilah , Which Is Described As Egipt In 1Samuel 15 ; 7 And Ethiopia Genesis 2 ; 10 - 13 . The Word Africa Is Derived From The Arabic Word Given By The Ottoman Arab So - Called Slave Trader , As '' Al Furaqa Meaning '' The Separation '' The Root Word'' Al Furaqa '' Is Faraqa Meaning ''' To Part , To Separate . To Device '' Originally , African Was Written As Afriyqaa . Now It Is Written As Afriyqiyah By Arabs . Their Intent Was To Do Exactly What They Did . Invade Our Land , Spread Their Religion And Divide Us Up Against Ourselves And They Succeeded In Separating Africans Against Each Other. Be They In Africa Or America , Africa Is The Second - Largest Continent , Lying South Of Europe Between The Atlantic And Indian Oceans . The Hottest Continent . Africa Has Vast Mineral Resources , Many Of Which Are Still Underveloped Jeremiah 4 ; 27 . :dj:
