    Btw to whoever was saying that Muhammad’s father was black: no.

    See, this is the problem with race politics today – people feel that if Moses wasn’t black, or Muhammad wasn’t black, or Jesus wasn’t black, then there’s a problem.

    No, let me tell you who was black.

    Bilal was black.

    Bilal, who gave the first call to the prayer.

    Bilal, who was raked over hot coals and professed that there is only one God.

    Islam is pure – there is no distinction among races.

    Since the birth of Islam, blacks and whites and arabs have been on equal plane.

    Whereas in America, until the 50s, we had churches telling blacks to be patient now because their reward is in even.

    C’mon, son. FOH.

    If you are racist, you are not Muslim.

    In fact, it was Shaytan (the devil) who was the original racist – he was created from fire and Adam was created from dirt and so he tried to make a distinction.

    We are humans – endowed with limitless spiritual potential.

    Angels don’t have desires – thus, if we fight our desires, we can elevate past angels.

    At the same time, dogs have no cognition – so if we fall prey to all of our desires, we can be worse than dogs.

    Humans have limitless capability to be good and limitless capability to be evil – and your station is dependent upon your level of spiritual enlightenment.

    Racism = the product of Satan.

    Islam = incompatible with racism.

    Wrong.

    Qaddafi used black Africans as pawns.

    He sent his people to the depths of the poorest areas of Africa offering jobs.

    Those “jobs” were to be part of his mercenary army.

    Qaddafi used them to kill his own people and if NATO didn’t step in, they might have won.

    Qaddafi was using black Africans all along – don’t believe the hype and don’t believe Farrakhan – sometimes the falsehood is hard to separate from the truth but if you reflect, it becomes clear.

    That laugh though….

  11. S.I.C.K Says:

    All Im saying is that all men have flaws moral and otherwise. Mainstream Islam is not a one size fits all religion. I’m black first and foremost. Islam downplays original culture and thought which is why they tear down Buddhist statues and temples which existence predates Islam .That’s like me going to grandma’s house slapping fire outta her and ripping white Jesus off her wall.

    ^THIS

    The oldest Capitalist trick in the book. Cortez and Conquistador Pizzaro did this to Native Americans on separate ends of the Americas. Cortez not so much in a sense of jobs, but as him mimicking their returning God.

    I’ve always been interested in Islam but never really approached anyone with real knowledge of it to break it down.

    Religious types take that shit way too seriously and get peeved when I question something I find questionable.

    I’m always gonna have questions, especially if something doesn’t jibe with me and some cats take offense.

    ^This is my problem as well. And then they seem to always want to convert you or wanna go off the deep end talking about some other shit and not sticking to the facts.

    The only thing I know about the Islam is what I’ve read for myself. Me skimming through the Qur’an and reading about it in history books, foot-notes from book from Certima and whatnot.

  27. S.I.C.K Says:

    If I showed up at your door and claimed I was a prophet and asked for your 9 year old daughters hand in marriage what would you do??

    At least the young girls Elijah messed with were old enough to consent.At the end of the day all men have flaws who have claimed divinity or prophethood.They said Clarence 13X was crazy when he claimed he was Allah but if you dig back far enough you will see where ALLAH is a common surname used for centuries before Islam was coined as a religion.

  32. S.I.C.K Says:

    Racism and Islam seems to go hand in hand.Go to any of those Yemen bodegas and you will see dark africans in servitude to this day.Ask them where there originally from they will tell you.If race isn`t important why do they sell pictures of the prohpet with his face covered with WHITE hands??I thought pictures of the prophet were a sin in Islam.So many contadictions it`s ashame.I resepect Kev because he serves his god in his own way and never acts like he knows it all.
