Safar 15 – Islamic Black History

Host: Ahmed Khalil

Discussion:

As the title of today’s show suggests we’re going to talk about black history from an Islamic perspective. Before we delve into this we need to think about if this is something that merits a Muslim perspective. The reality is that not only did Islam teach us about equality of all human beings regardless of their colour, which would be merit enough to give this topic some dedicated air time. But also, unfortunately racism and prejudice is still very much a Jaahily relic that manifests itself in the attitudes, actions, and words of many Muslims until this day. This of course has nothing to do with what Islam teaches us. In fact the prophet peace be upon him would condone the racist statements that early Muslim converts would utter in reference to the first Muathin of the Muslims who was of East African Decent.

The History of Islam in Africa (by Sulayman Nyang):

How Islam Made it’s way to North America in modern history: 30% of African slaves were Muslim.

Here is a documentary narrated and hosted by Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick entitled Ethiopia an Islamic History.
