This is a post that should be read by racist, anti-black Muslim POC and extremist, Islamophobic black consciousness-folks alike:
1. Ummana Hajar/Hagar, an enslaved Egyptian woman, concubine of sayyidina Ibrahim, and the mother of Ismail and through him of Arabs and Muslims, from whom the Prophet Muhammad descended, was a black woman, probably of East-African or Nubian descent.
2. Before & during the time of the Prophet, there were many black Arab tribes.
3. The Prophet had many black Companions and family members – it wasn’t just Bilal! Some of his black companions and family members were: Baraka Umm Ayman, Sumayya b. Khayyat, Ali B. Abu Talib, Sidi Ali Zayn al Abidin, Sayyida Fiddah, Sayyidina al Hussayn, and the list goes on and on.
4. The first hijra went to Ethiopia, where Muslim refugees were welcomed by a Christian Ethiopian king, so Islam was established in Ethiopia & West-Africa BEFORE it was established in Medina, let alone the Middle-East, North Africa, Andalusia, Turkey, Persia, West-Africa, the Indian subcontinent, China, etc.
