Arab Supremacist Racism: Islam's Dirty Secret Shame
Submitted by Facts not Fantasy (Canada), May 6, 2008 at 09:03
A slave cult living in denial of its history of hypocrisy Tabari II:21 "Ham [Africans] begat all those who are black and curly-haired, while Japheth [Turks] begat all those who are full-faced with small eyes, and Shem [Arabs] begat everyone who is handsome of face with beautiful hair.
Noah prayed that the hair of Ham's descendants would not grow beyond their ears, and that whenever his descendants met Shem's, the latter would enslave them." Tabari IX:69 "Arabs are the most noble people in lineage, the most prominent, and the best in deeds. We were the first to respond to the call of the Prophet. We are Allah's helpers and the viziers of His Messenger. We fight people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us.
As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in Allah's Cause. Killing him is a small matter to us." Tabari II:11 "Shem, the son of Noah was the father of the Arabs, the Persians, and the Greeks; Ham was the father of the Black Africans; and Japheth was the father of the Turks and of Gog and Magog who were cousins of the Turks. Noah prayed that the prophets and apostles would be descended from Shem and kings would be from Japheth.
He prayed that the African's color would change so that their descendants would be slaves to the Arabs and Turks." Ishaq:243 "I heard the Apostle say: 'Whoever wants to see Satan should look at Nabtal!' He was a black man with long flowing hair, inflamed eyes, and dark ruddy cheeks.... Allah sent down concerning him: 'To those who annoy the Prophet there is a painful doom." [9:61] "Gabriel came to Muhammad and said, 'If a black man comes to you, his heart is more gross than a donkey's.'" Ishaq:144 "A rock was put on a slave's chest.
When Abu Bakr complained, they said, 'You are the one who corrupted him, so save him from his plight.' I will do so,' said Bakr. 'I have a black slave, tougher and stronger than Bilal, who is a heathen. I will exchange him. The transaction was carried out." Qur'an 9:97 "The Arabs of the desert (Bedouins) are the worst in unbelief and hypocrisy, and most fitted to be in ignorance of the command which Allah hath sent down to His Messenger." (My tribe is better than your tribe.)
Bukhari: V9B89N256 "Allah's Apostle said,
'You should listen to and obey your ruler even if he is a black African slave whose head looks like a raisin.'" (Blacks are ugly compared with us Arabs.) Ishaq:450 "It is your folly to fight the Apostle, for Allah's army is bound to disgrace you. We brought them to the pit. Hell was their meeting place. We collected them there, black slaves, men of no descent." (Arab supremacist racism) Ishaq:374
"The black troops and slaves of the Meccans cried out and the Muslims replied, 'Allah destroy your sight, you impious rascals.'" (Allah's perfect religion...perfect in every way...did not outlaw slavery, but confirmed and institutionalized it. The caliphs also used slave armies. Slavery is "perfectly" Islamic...all the way to 80,000 slaves each in paradise.)
Bukhari:V4B52N137 "The Prophet said, 'Let the negro slave of Dinar perish. And if he is pierced with a thorn, let him not find anyone to take it out for him....(sadism) If he [the black slave] asks for anything it shall not be granted, and if he needs intercession [to get into paradise], his intercession will be denied.'"
Tabari II:11 "Shem, the son of Noah was the father of the Arabs, the Persians, and the Greeks; Ham was the father of the Black Africans; and Japheth was the father of the Turks and of Gog and Magog who were cousins of the Turks. Noah prayed that the prophets and apostles would be descended from Shem and kings would be from Japheth. He prayed that the African's color would change so that their descendants would be slaves to the Arabs and Turks." "The root of the beginning of slavery is prisoners of war; the bounties have become lawful to the nation of Mohammed."
Ibn Timiyya (Vol. 32, p. 89) "Slavery is justified because of the war itself; however, it is not permissible to enslave a free Muslim. It is lawful to kill the infidel or to enslave him, and it also makes it lawful to take his offspring into captivity."
Ibn Timiyya (Vol. 31, p. 380) So Islam not only allows for Muslim to capture slaves in wars, yet the sons and daughters of these slaves are also legal properties of the captor Muslim! "According to Islamic law of Sharia' concerning prisoners of war, the decision is left to the Muslim Imam. He has the choice either to kill them or to exchange them for Muslim captives, or to enslave them. This is in regard to men, but women and children are not permitted to be killed, but must be exchanged to redeem Muslim captives or enslaved - take them as slaves and maids."
Ibn Hashim: "Prophet's Biography" (Al-Road Al-Anf') (Part 4, p. 177) This question was delivered to Mufti Ibn Timiyya. "A man married a maid-slave who bore him a child. Would that child be free or would he be an owned slave?" Ibn Timiyya (Vol. 31, p. 376 - 377) Ibn Timiyya replied: "Her child whom she bore from him would be the property of her master according to all the Imams (heads of the four Islamic schools of law) because the child follows the status of his mother in freedom or slavery. If the child is not of the race of Arabs, then he is definitely an owned slave according to the scholars, but the scholars disputed his status among themselves if he was from the Arabs - whether he must be enslaved or not, because when A'isha (Mohammed's wife) had a maid-slave who was an Arab, Mohammed told A'isha, `Set this maid free because she is from the children of Ishmael.'"
Arab slaves had a higher status than African slaves. Let's talk about Mohammed The Slave Owner: Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya "one of the greatest scholars of Islam" in "Zad al-Ma'ad" (his book) writes: "Mohammed had many male and female slaves. He used to buy and sell them, but he purchased more slaves than he sold, especially after God empowered him by His message, as well as after his immigration from Mecca. He once sold one black slave for two. His name was Jacob al-Mudbir. His purchases of slaves were more than he sold. He was used to renting out and hiring many slaves, but he hired more slaves than he rented out."
Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya in "Zad al-Ma'ad" (Part I, p. 160) As we see, Mohammed was not only a slave owner, but a frequent slave trader. The allegedly perfect actions of an allegedly perfect man. Mohammed's Male Slaves Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya relies on the prophet's biographies written by great ancient scholars; therefore, he is regarded by Muslims as an authority, a primary source and a leader among the students of Islam. "These were the names of Mohammed's male slaves: Yakan Abu Sharh, Aflah, Ubayd, Dhakwan, Tahman, Mirwan, Hunayn, Sanad, Fadala Yamamin, Anjasha, Al Hadi, Mad'am, Karkara, Abu Rafi', Thawban, Ab Kabsha, Salih, Rabah, Yara Nubyan, Fadila, Waqid, Mabur, Abu Waqid, Kasam, Abu 'Ayb, Abu Muwayhiba, Zayd Ibn Haritha, and also a black slave called Mahran, who was re-named (by Mohammed) to Safina (ship)."
Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya: "Zad al-Ma'ad" (his book) (part 1, p. 114, 115, and 116) Mohammed's Female Salves Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya in "Zad al-Ma'ad" (his book) continues: "These are the names of Mohammed's Female slaves (Maid Slaves or Concubines): Salma Um Rafi', Maymuna daughter of Abu Asib, Maymuna daughter of Sa'd, Khadra, Radwa, Razina, Um Damira, Rayhana, Mary the Coptic, in addition to two other maid-slaves, one of them given to him as a present by his cousin, Zaynab, and the other one captured in a war." Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya: "Zad al-Ma'ad" (his book) (Volume One, p. 116)
So in addition to 21 wives, by average Mohammed also owned 11 concubines and female sex slaves. It is clear for all, where Mohammed, the Quran and Allah stand on slavery, and Africans. Al-Kisa'i writes in his chapter on Noah: "It is said that one day Noah came to his son and said, 'My son, I have not slept since I boarded the ark, and now I desire to sleep my fill." So saying, he put his head on Shem's lap and went to sleep. Suddenly a gust of wind uncovered Noah's genitals; Ham laughed, but Shem jumped up and covered him. When Noah awoke he said, "What was that laughter?" Shem told him what had happened, and Noah grew angry with Ham. "Do you laugh at your father's genitals?" he said.
"May God change your complexion and may your face turn black!" And that very instant his face did turn black. Turning to Shem, he said, "You covered your father: may God shield you from harm in this world and have mercy upon you in the next! May He make prophets and nobles of your progeny! May He make bondswomen and slaves of Ham's progeny until the Day of Resurrection! May He make tyrants, kings and emperors of Japheth's progeny!' And God knows best."
Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya "one of the greatest scholars of Islam" in "Zad al-Ma'ad" (his book) writes: "Mohammed had many male and female slaves. He used to buy and sell them, but he purchased more slaves than he sold, especially after God empowered him by His message, as well as after his immigration from Mecca. He once sold one black slave for two. His name was Jacob al-Mudbir. His purchases of slaves were more than he sold. He was used to renting out and hiring many slaves, but he hired more slaves than he rented out."
Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya in "Zad al-Ma'ad" (Part I, p. 160) Ahmad Ibn Hanbal reported a saying attributed to the Prophet which in effect states that God created the white race (dhurriyyah baydâ) from the right shoulder of Adam and created the black race (dhurriyyah sawdâ) from Adam's left shoulder. Those of Adam's right shoulder would enter Paradise and those of the left, Perdition. Other equally racist sayings have been attributed to the Prophet in the traditions. In 889 AH, Ibn Qutaybah wrote that "Ham, son of Noah, was light-skinned and handsome.
Then God Most High changed his complexion and that of his progeny [into black] because of the curse [invoked by] his father." Elsewhere, he states, "They are ugly and misshapen, because they live in a hot country. The heat overcooks them in the womb, and curls their hair." As Maqdisi wrote, "There is no marriage among them [genealogy or nasab being an issue of incredible importance to Arab-Muslims in particular]; the child does not know his father, and they eat human flesh--but God knows best. As for the Zanji, they are people of black color, flat noses, kinky hair, and little understanding or intelligence."
Nasir al-Din Tusi (d.1274 CE), a famous Iranian philosopher, wrote: "If various kinds of men are taken and one placed after another, like the Negro from Zanzibar, in the South-most countries, the Negro does not differ from the animal in anything except the fact that his hands have been lifted from the earth, except for what God wishes. Many have seen that the ape is more capable of being trained than the Negro, and more intelligent."Ibn Khaldun (d. 1406CE) added that blacks are "only humans who are closer to dumb animals than to rational beings."
The reason for their characteristic "levity, excitability, and great emotionalism," according to Ibn Khaldun, is "due to the expansion and diffusion of the animal spirit" in them. Sa'id al-Andalusi (d. 1070CE) wrote that blacks are "More like animals than men," and that "the rule of virtue and stability in judgment" is lacking amongst them, such noble qualities being replaced by "foolishness and ignorance."
Even such luminaries as Ibn Sina considered blacks to be "people who are by their very nature slaves." Ibn Khaldun (d.808/ 1406), the celebrated and true father of sociology, says of blacks in the southernmost portion of Africa that "they are not to be numbered among humans."6 The early Meccan jurist, Ta'us (d.106/724), reportedly indulged the habit of refusing to attend weddings between a black and white because he deemed this to be "unnatural," in accordance with his understanding of Qur'an 4:119, which speaks of the Satanic impulse to "alter God's creation (taghyir khalq Allah)."
Numerous early Maliki jurists (reportedly on the authority of Malik) held that while under normal circumstances a valid marriage contract required that the woman be represented by a male relative (wali), there were instances in which this requirement could be relaxed, such as where the woman hailed from lowly origins, was ugly, or was black. This, they argued, was because blackness was an affliction that automatically reduced a woman's social standing.
"Muhammad owned and sold black slaves. Slavery, in fact, persists to this day in some Muslim countries, where Arabs continue to enslave black Africans. […] Unlike the West, the Muslim world has yet to offer an apology for slavery. The institution is ingrained in the Qur'an. To admit that it is a mistake would be to admit the fallibility of the Qur'an and bring its divine origin into question.
Even today, Muslims act as if Islamic slavery was a favor done to the millions of unfortunate men, women and children who were forcibly uprooted from their native lands and sent to lives of sexual and menial servitude deep in the Islamic world." (-Kola Boof, the Sudanese-born writer sentenced in a fatwa to death by beheading for writings judged to be blasphemous, says she won't stop her campaign to expose the wrongs committed against black African Sudanese at the hands of their Arab Muslim compatriots. She is now living in hiding in the U.S.)
Moslems deny the clear meaning of such texts as the above: Islam cannot be separated from slavery and Arab supremacist racism. This death cult ("We love death.") destroys independent thought in its victims through fear of torture and violent death in order to impose mind control and information control over the world. Islam's attitude to slavery and racism is very hypocritical and impresses no one, not even Moslems. Six million black Africans are leaving Islam every year. There will be half as many black Moslems in 20 years.
JoJi, you could have found all these texts yourself. I hope you are capable of feeling ashamed after you have read them.
