Our dear Sheila wrote

Let us not forget Lokman

For the readers the names of the individual Quranic suras were made from some catchy word or name in the sura so in the case of Qur'an 105 we have the word Feel or elephant et voila it is now called Surat al-Feel. Did you learn something new today our dear Sheila?

Now in the case of this strange Luqman we have a whoe Sura called Surat Luqman but who is really Luqman no one has a clue as you shall see and here is what al-Tabari is saying

قَالَ قَتَادَة : وَلَمْ يَكُنْ نَبِيًّا , وَلَمْ يُوحَ إِلَيْهِ

Or Qatada said that he (Luqman) was not a prophet and nothing was revealed to him

So what was he supposed to be? Well al-Tabari tells us that

وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَا لُقْمَانَ الْفِقْهَ فِي الدِّين , وَالْعَقْل , وَالْإِصَابَةَ فِي الْقَوْل

Or Allah is saying that he brought to Luqman the understanding of religion and logic and eloquence when speaking

But who was really Luqman? No one has a clue and here are the different and conflicting opinions provided by early Muslims

1.كَانَ لُقْمَان الْحَكِيم عَبْدًا حَبَشِيًّا , غَلِيظ الشَّفَتَيْنِ , مُصَفَّح الْقَدَمَيْنِ

Or the wise Luqman was an Ethiopian slave (and here come the racism) with thick lips and big broad feet!

What a disaster and nothing about being Asiatic or with olive skin

2. كَانَ لُقْمَان عَبْدًا أَسْوَد , عَظِيمَ الشَّفَتَيْنِ , مُشَقَّق الْقَدَمَيْنِ .

Or he was a BLACK slave with great lips and his feet are full of deep cuts and nothing about an olive skin

3. كَانَ لُقْمَان الْحَكِيم أَسْوَد مِنْ سُودَان مِصْر

Or the wise Luqman was BLACK from the Sudan part of Egypt

What a disaster he was not even an Amazigh

4. كَانَ لُقْمَان عَبْدًا حَبَشِيًّا .

Or Luqman was an Ethiopian slave

Nothing about being a Moor our dear Sheila

And here is more about Arab racism

فَقَالَ لَهُ سَعِيد : لَا تَحْزَن مِنْ أَجْل أَنَّك أَسْوَد

Or a certain Said told him (Luqman) do not be sad because you are black!

There is nothing wrong with being black Sheila right? Not in Islam

5. كَانَ أَسْوَد نُوبِيًّا

Here is another opinion: He (Luqman) was BLACK from Nubia

Sheila: Nubia is a very long way from the lands of the Amazigh the real Moors

6. And to add more spice to this story we are told that

عَنْ مُجَاهِد { وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَا لُقْمَانَ الْحِكْمَةَ } قَالَ : الْقُرْآنَ .

Mujahid says that in Q31:12 the word al-Hikma really means al-Qur'an which means that Allah brought to Luqman the Qur'an! What a disaster so the Qur'an was revealed to Luqman our dear Sheila? So do you think that Muhammad did not tell us the turth?

7. And here is your bonus for today and as per al-Tabari others were quoted as saying that Luqman is really a prophet

كَانَ لُقْمَان نَبِيًّا

So what should we to believe/ That he was Ethiopian or Nubian or from the Sudan Part of Egypt and was he a prophet or was he not a prophet and was the Qur'an revealed to him or not/ Some one is a liar here Sheila but he for sure was not an Amazigh

And as usual only Allahu A3lam or no one has a clue and you think that you and your temple have the answer to who was really Luqman?

But you know what is really missing? None of these traditions tell us that he was an Amazigh or a Moor

I hope that young people in your temple are reading our responses to you and let them judge you and judge what you teach them

You are a nice lady but you are for sure misguided
