What sort of "hidden agenda" do you think that I have. I think that everything I said is clear and I clearly stated that my reason for writing about this is to correct people's misunderstanding about the meaning of abyad (white) to the Arabs. Do you see a problem with correcting people's misunderstanding about an issue? Do you see a problem with showing the correct meaning of words used to describe the Prophet (SAWS)? Do you see a problem with spreading knowledge? If you think that this isn't knowledge, explain how you came to that conclusion. And please explain what sort of "hidden agenda" you think I have.
Take advantage of a good opportunity when the door opens, for you never know when it will close again
I would like to be judged in the company of our scholars and not you Mr Berry.
Please know it that for me you still have not reached Islam and it is my duty as Muslim to warn you about your status. I have hereby done my duty.
And just in case you want to reciprocate in kind then you can hold it back - I keep worrying about me day and night.
And I would not like you to keep muddying the waters here. Since you are senior member here at SF I shall make this my final view about your position - you are trying to obfuscate the truth, that is Islam.
And who are you to feel that you can determine who has reached Islam and who hasn't and who are you to feel that you can determine my status. What makes you think you can do that? Who are you?Please know it that for me you still have not reached Islam and it is my duty as Muslim to warn you about your status.
What truth am I trying to obfuscate in your view? Tell us about this truth. What is the truth in your view? And do you consider what was said by the scholars I quoted in my article lies? You've heard what the scholars of the past have said the truth is. Now tell us what you think the truth is.you are trying to obfuscate the truth
Please answer the following 2 questions in order to clear away any misconceptions the members of this forum (the majority who are Ahle Sunnah) may have in regards to your posts:
1) Are you or were you affiliated to NOI? (Bear in mind that ascribing to the ideologies of NOI is kufr by consensus.)
2) Was Nabi Muhammad (SAW) a 'black' man (like in African descent sense), nauzu-billah or an arab?
"Worship Allah and join none with Him in worship." (4:36)
if the 'real' arabs were black then where did the 'fake' non-black arabs come from and what time in history did they arrive?
surely if this happened then there has to historical accounts that directly or indirectly refer to this.
No, I'm NOT and I NEVER have been nor do I agree with their ideologies.1) Are you or were you affiliated to NOI? (Bear in mind that ascribing to the ideologies of NOI is kufr by consensus.)
No, he (SAWS) wasn't a black-skinned man and I never said that he was black-skinned. This man is black-skinned:2) Was Nabi Muhammad (SAW) a 'black' man (like in African descent sense) or an arab?
Nor was he an "African". He (SAWS) was an Arab and he was described as abyad (white) and he was described as asmar. And the purpose of my article is to explain the TRUE MEANING of abyad to the Arabs of the past and to show that it doesn't mean what people think it means. And by the way, this man isn't black-skinned either:
Nor are these men:
today when a person is referred to as black, it does not entirely refer to his skin colour but also his features.
i am as 'black' as any black man but my features are south asian hence i am not referred to as being black.
so when you say that the Prophet was black immediately it brings to mind a person who is 'black' in skin colour and 'black' in features.
from what i have read so far, in simple terms, are you trying to say that the Prophet was darker in skin colour then the present day arabs who have a light complexion?
can you post a pic of what you think the latter day arabs looked like along with a pic of what todays arabs look like to make a comparison please.
