5.0 out of 5 stars Black Arabia Verdict
This is by far one of the best books I have ever read in regards to African History. The information was so detailed and precise beyond any reproach. I highly appreciated how the author cited his multitude of sources, from all over the globe, within the material and at the end of the sections in order that one may conduct follow up research and fact finding expeditions...

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Arabia Verdict, March 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is by far one of the best books I have ever read in regards to African History. The information was so detailed and precise beyond any reproach. I highly appreciated how the author cited his multitude of sources, from all over the globe, within the material and at the end of the sections in order that one may conduct follow up research and fact finding expeditions. The etymology and ethnology empirical data established by the author was splendid and unblemished. The author challenges and disproves the common myths of the Arabs and hyper Afro Centrics (most of whom I admire and relish) with a scholarly, commonsense and exhaustive approach. It does not alienate or overly rebuke the elder statesmen, actually he provides them with honor and respect, however, he does put to the test some of their common beliefs, which the history supports all of what Dr. Wesley asserts. I observed a debate between Dr. Wesley Muhammad and Dr. Ray Hagin, and after the evidence presented by Dr. Wesley, Dr. Hagin had no sense of rebuttal and actually stated that he agreed with all that which Dr. Wesley delivered.

There are moments where it is somewhat repetitive, however, I presume it is to ensure the point is established for memory. For theological reasons, I was very hesitant and skeptical purchasing this book, however, it was one of the best I have ever read, and is a must have for any student of African History and Islam. This work changed much of my perspectives and enhanced my knowledge base on subject matters and ideas that were not fully developed prior to its reading. This book ranks with the best of scholars including Cheik Diop, Henrik Clarke, Josef ben Jochannan, and Ivan van Sertima. The information was so scrupulous I had to take notes in order for memorization and to share with my constituents and friends. A sheer masterpiece and is a mainstay in any serious library. Put it this way, I bought it on Kindle first, however, I bought a hardcopy. In the old school phrasing, this one is a SMOKER...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!, December 28, 2009
By 
Jawhar Al-Shabazz "J.G." (Long Beach, Ca United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Black Arabia & The African Origin of Islam (Paperback)
This piece of work that was done by Dr. Wesley Muhammad, was scholarly and right on time. This book points out that Islam in an indigenous North African Religion/Way Of Life to African Peoples. He Shows how Allah predated Prophet Muhammad of Arabia (PBUH) by thousands of yeas before linguistically. Also Islam being much older than Muhammad of Arabia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very we'll researched book, February 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and provided proof that the original Arabs were black. The bible testifies to this also since Haggar was Ishmael's mother and was Egyptian . Also the bible talks about the "Arabs on the side of the Ethiopians". So it's clear from this , archaeology , Hadith, and history that the first Muslims were black Asians. Muhammad is quoted as saying that " within 3 generations after they (Muslims ) will not be of me" . He meant that spiritually I believe but I also think this was literal since many Muslims in the Middle East are light or white skinned now. The last rightly guided Caliphate was Ali who died in 661 .

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Information!!!!, April 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Black Arabia & The African Origin of Islam (Paperback)
Considering the amount of evidence provided, and the sources for claims made; I would have to agree with Wesley Muhammad on the origin, and the black Arabian creation of Islam. Personal views aside; I believe that brotha Wesley Muhammad (True Islam), is one who will at least come to be known by his seemingly endless research on Black Arabia, Islam, and the Black God. Research that I myself believes has began to shake the foundation and basis of world religions as we have come to know them today.

Asalamu Alaikum!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh Air for the True Owners of the Middle East, December 28, 2013
This review is from: Black Arabia & The African Origin of Islam (Paperback)
I am very pleased with all the reviews. Even the ones who didn't care about the findings had to cop to the truth. I am lucky that I have traveled most of the world and have made friends in all those places. But one thing I could never forget are the African students I attended the university with who claimed that although they lived in West Africa, they were never converted to Islam. They could trace their ancestors as far back as the great exodus from the east being led by Mansa Musa and later by his son Sunni Ali. Arabs today, and other inhabitants of the so called Middle East, constantly refer to their faith as 3rd century Islam. The clues from their own mouths practically write the story for you. The origin of Islam for the desert tribes began in Palestine which they didn't occupy until the 7th century. The Kabba was not a stone which fell from the sky but the ruin of a castle of the original people of Islam. Any way, good book. Finally, someone gives a voice of truth for the real Muslims and owners of the Middle East.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, October 1, 2012

This is a brilliant revelatory piece of research. For those who have an interest in history with truthful objectives rather than racist/political ones, this is certainly worth reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars Muhammad Ibn, May 31, 2012
This review is from: Black Arabia & The African Origin of Islam (Paperback)
There is no Islam before Muhammad Ibn and anybody who is willing to claim another people history and not willing to learn their own has a problem with their selves.This book claims Islam to be, an African religion or the black mans religion is crazy.Islam started around 1442, If many people would research African religions they would find out 1442 is relatively new compared to African religions such as Yoruba. Please for your sake go learn African religion and heritage and stop claiming beliefs of people who had no problem enslaving the African and selling him to anyone who was willing to buy.If Islam was of African origin then why would Islam called many of the African people "kaffir" an Arabic term used by Muslims to describe non believers and many of the African traditions such as playing music "Haram" forbidden by Islamic law. This book was a waste of time I thought this book would have a good point of view but does not, I showed some Muslims this book and they looked at me and said " Who wrote this book, and they where able to discredit all of the author's main points." Then I did some research on the author after being laughed at, I realized this book was written by a person who follows the teachings of Elijah Muhammad and I felt like a idiot and a bigot showing this book to others. Please if you want to keep your money and your sanity don't buy this book it's a huge waste of time!
