    (Peace Be Unto You With Allah, The Most High's Mercy


    Allah: Allah is the proper name in Arabic for The One and Only God, The Creator and Sustainer of the universe. It is used by the Arab Christians and Israelites for THE God (Eloh-im in Hebrew; 'Allaha' in Aramaic, the mother tongue of Jesus). The word Allah does not have a plural or gender. Allah does not have any associate or partner, and He does not beget nor was He begotten.

    Welcome to our cyberspace.  We are here to remind you of the glorious history of the African Islamic Mission, the legacy of Islam in America among peoples of African descent and the historic struggles of African American Muslims for identity, power and spirituality via the TRUE understanding of the One Allah (Lord, Creator, Sustainer), The Most High, and ALL of the MESSENGERS, LEADERS and SAVIORS of The Most High who came amongst ALL Africans throughout the course of human history to lend guidance and freedom to Our People by means of Right Living, Unity from amongst ourselves and Commitment (struggle) to a Higher Ideal.  We call that philosophy "AFRISLAM".  Those who overstand that are our Family.

    We offer at our site a most comprehensive listings of articles, books, DVD's and information about African Muslims in America and abroad and Real Islam (void of Arab ethnocentric chauvinisms) in general.  We aspire to be a resource and information site for everything Believers, or serious students of Islam (the struggle for Peace),  need to know about African Islamic history, it's personalities and Islamic education.

    We invite you to browse around our site, to come back often for our regularly scheduled updates and to tell your friends and associates about this site that offers Islam in it's purest African Islamic overstanding.  If you have something you would like to contribute to our efforts please use our "contact us" button and send us a link or a message.  Don't forget to sign our Guest Book so we may keep up with our Family.

     Deeper Roots:
    Muslims in the Americas and the Caribbean Before Columbus

    Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick

    Produced by Abdul Malik Mujahid
    Directed by
    Jawad Jafry
    Did you know that Muslims were in the Americas before Columbus? Islamic scholar and historian Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick provides an eye opening, informative and thoughtful presentation on a little known aspect of American history.

    Did Elvis Presley, Booker T. Washington, Fredrick Douglas and the wife of Abraham Lincoln have Muslim ancestors ?

    How were Muslims able to travel throughout the Americas and the Caribbean long before Christopher Columbus ?

    Islamic scholar and historian Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick proves that Muslims played a significant role in the West long before the arrival of Christopher Columbus and his "discovery" of America.

    Dr. Quick also reveals how Muslims fought for freedom during the Trans-Atlantic slave trade and how even today, Islam's roots can be seen in the names and ancestry of people living in America and the Caribbean.

    More information:

    Deeper Roots is a must-have video for every student of Western and Islamic history, whether in high school, college or at the doctoral level. This is also a necessary educational tool for libraries in public schools, cities, Islamic centers and mosques.


    CoverRevolution by the Book:
    The Rap Is Live

    Jamil Al-Amin

    It is criminal that, in the 1990’s, we still approach struggle… sloganeering, saying, “by any means necessary,” as if that’s a program. Or, “we shall overcome,” as if that’s a program. Slogans are not programs. We must define the means, which will bring about change. This can be found in… [what] Allah has brought for us in the Qur’an and in the example of the Prophet. Our revolution must be according to what Almighty God revealed.

    The struggle is an ongoing program… When the first slave rebelled against being a slave, he gave an alternative to slavery that has been built upon until now. That’s struggle; and there have been many movements in the struggle—The abolitionist movement, the antislavery movement, the civil right movement, but, the struggle still goes on.

    The mission of a believer in Islam is totally different from coexisting or being the part of the system. The prevailing morals are wrong. Their ethics are wrong. Western philosophy… has reduced man to food, clothing, shelter, and the sex drive, which means he doesn’t have a spirit… Successful struggle requires a Divine Program. Allah has provided that program.


    On the Side of My People
    by Louis A., Jr Decaro

    In On the Side of My People , Louis A. DeCaro, Jr. offers the first book length religious treatment of Malcolm X. Malcolm X was certainly a political man. Yet he was also a man of Allah, struggling with his salvation--as concerned with redemption as with revolution.

    Drawing on a wide variety of sources, including extensive interviews with Malcolm's oldest brother, FBI surveillance documents, the black press, and tape-recorded speeches and interviews, DeCaro examines the charismatic leader from the standpoint of his two conversion experiences--to the Nation while he was in jail and to traditional Islam climaxing in his pilgrimage to Mecca . Examining Malcolm beyond his well-known years as spokesman for the Nation, On the Side My People explores Malcolm's early religious training and the influence of his Garveyite parents, his relationship with Elijah Muhammad, his often overlooked journey to Africa in 1959, and his life as a traditional Muslim after the 1964 pilgrimage. In his critical analysis of The Autobiography of Malcolm X, DeCaro provides insight into the motivation behind Malcolm's own story, offering a key to understanding how and why Malcolm portrayed his life in his own autobiography as told to Alex Haley.

    Inspiring and necessary, On the Side My People presents readers with a Malcolm X few were privileged to know. By filling in the gaps of Malcolm's life, DeCaro paints a more complete portrait of one of the most powerful and relevant civil rights figures in American history.


    Book CoverAmerican Jihad :
    Islam After Malcolm X

    Barboza, who converted to orthodox Islam in 1975, introduces 50 members of the growing American Muslim population [including Amiyr Latiyf from AIM]. With gentle proselytizing, the narratives and interviews relate conversion memories, immigrant tales, and other anecdotes about the U.S. Islamic experiences. The era of El Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X) and the Nation of Islam are instant images of American Muslims. Barboza interviews many from that era, including the famous (Muhammad Ali, Louis Farrakhan, and Kareem Abdul Jabbar) and the unknown (prison converts and others influenced by Malcolm X), as well as some foreign-born and pre-Malcolm Muslims. Barboza conveys the impact of Malcolm X on Islam's rapid growth and the American Muslims' struggle for acceptance while trying to cultivate our understanding of the religion through conversations with diverse practitioners. Grouped in themes addressing a particular aspect of jihad (an effort or strife), the interviews are engaging reading for all audiences.-



    "Arab Conspiracies Against Islam"

    The theme 'The Arab conspiracies against Islam' is thought provoking rather than a controversy. The book drew a line in making the distinction between what is Arabic religion and what is Islam. Non-Muslims around the world who know very little about Islam will be overwhelmed to discover the nucleus of bigotry dominating the Arabic religion. It also explains why the followers of the Arabic religion around the world are downtrodden and humiliated, and why the majority of them became redundant and think radically and why they prefer violence instead of tolerance.

    For example, they condemn people around the world as infidels for worshiping idols or icons carved from the mountain rocks and fervently declared Jihad against them as a battle for the sake of Allah. But they feel sanctified when they bow and prostrate to a rock structure carved by the Arabs. They call Allah when they aggress and they also call Him when oppressed. But the same Allah seems to have abandoned them - all the time.

    This book gives details how the primitive Arabic culture and tribal laws infiltrated into Islam featuring it as a religion espousing terrorism, fanaticism and inward looking. The author unveils the evidences from the Qur'an to prove the innovator of the Arabic religion has truly corrupted the scripture instilling a dogmatic creed satiated with uncultured and the nastiest barbaric way of life. In his study the truth has indeed emerged which strongly contrast with the present controversies.

    The research is useful for those who are seeking for a subject such as the one detailed in this book. It will become much clearer when the readers set aside ideological hypothesis and, as their sole criteria, rely on established facts, logical deduction, and the power of reasoning.
    FROM THE AUTHOR:  I must state that my real name is not Aidid Safar. The Arabic religion today is insanity sometimes masquerading as a shaggy dog story. From Morocco to the Philippines, over one billion people have been fooled to be happily part of this insanity.

    Others have had death sentence pronounced upon them for saying much less than what I am saying in this book. In many so-called 'Muslim' countries, my authorship of this book will mean persecution, prosecution, imprisonment and may be even death at the hands of more than insane followers of the Arabic Religion. However the message is always more important than the messenger. Throughout history, bearers of messages deemed as bad have sometimes been killed. On the other hand, bearers of messages deemed as good have often been idolized. I wish to avoid both these fates. I shall remain Aidid Safar. But still we are here.


    One of the most controversial books in America: 
    The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews
    by: Historical Research Department of the Nation of Islam
    Banned in Canada - Banned by Barnes & Noble and Borders

    The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan says of this book"

    Describes the tremendous indifference to the pain and suffering caused to African families and the obvious loss of life resulting from Jewish policy which claimed that it was more profitable to kill a slave after seven years then feed him or her nutritional food and keep them alive longer. Many contemporary health problems within the African-American population can be traced back to the slavery era in which their ancestors were fed only on molasses (residue of fermented sugar).  This book is remarkably well researched. The quotes are all from Jewish sources and no others are included because of the risk of anti-Shemitic bias.


    Gospel of Barnabas

    Gospel of Barnabas
    Lonsdale Ragg - This was by far one of the MOST personal and revealing accounts of the sermons of Jesus as recorded by the Disciple whom Jesus loved, Barnabas. Barnabas was one of the two men to be chosen by the 11 apostles to fill in for Judas' vacant seat in the apostle hood. He was with Jesus from the baptism, to the Ascension. Jesus personally asks Barnabas to hold these words close to him. For he knew of the people making up stories about his Divinity and mission. Banned by the church. One of the new testament "Apocrypha" meaning "hidden from the people". Reading this changed my life and gave me a deeper and closer love of the most misunderstood man ever, Jesus, son of Mary. Highly recommended.


    Accept Your Own and Be Free from Mental Slavery

    Sheik Charles Brown-El - sets out to eradicate the 200-year-old perception that Negro, Black, and Colored are races or nationalities. The book is based on the oft-ignored doctrine of Prophet Noble Drew Ali and the Moorish Science Temple of America, whose sole purpose is to retrieve the lost heritage that was stripped away during slavery.


    Islam, Black Nationalism and Slavery: A Detailed HistoryIslam, Black Nationalism and Slavery: A Detailed History
    by Adib Rashad

    From the origin of Islam in Arabia to the empires of Ghana, Mali and Songhai, the author recounts the contributions Africans made to growth of Islam and the significant influence the religion had on the peoples of that continent. He proceeds to describe the impact of slavery on African Muslims brought to the Americas and the role Islam played in their surviving the ordeal of bondage. In his fascinating study, author identifies the major landmarks in the history of Muslims in America, documenting Muslim slaves of the pre-civil war era and explaining the rise of modern Islamic movements in the cities of the United States. The book offers vivid profiles of such powerful historical figures as Marcus Garvey, Noble Drew Ali, Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X and the leaders of black power movement. It also present biographical sketches of contemporary Muslim leaders, including Louis Farrakhan, W.D. Mohammad, Jamil al-Amin and others who contributed to the present African-American Islamic consciousness.


    padBlack Pilgrimage to Islam
    Robert Dannin
    328 pg HB with Dust Jacket

    From the Inside Cover of this Oxford University title: "Can Islam help African Americans overcome the legacy of slavery and decades of racial oppression? How does the strict Islamic lifestyle accommodate mainstream American values? Will fiercely independent African-American women yield to Islamic law? Why would African-Americans fashion themselves into a "double minority" by converting to Islam?"

    Includes a 12-page photographic journey.


    In Black Pilgrimage to Islam, Robert Dannin gives us a rare and fascinating insight into the minds and sensibilities of Black Americans who have embraced Islam. His research is impeccable, his judgments are acute, and his prose is uncommonly graceful. This book is an important contribution to American social history. Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States

    The Nation of Islam has long monopolized the media coverage of the rising influence of Islam among African Americans. Black Pilgrimage to Islam is the history of the far larger, yet largely misunderstood, story of conversion to ORTHODOX Islam in the African American Community.

    Can Islam help African Americans overcome the legacy of slavery and decades of racial oppression? Will it redeem hardened gangsters from lives saturated by narcotics and violent crime? Is it possible to face toward Mecca in prayer while simultaneously resisting the influence of foreign missionaries who disdain the American way of life? Will fiercely independent African-American women play by the rules and accept polygamous marriage?

    The religious landscape of America is under its most intense scrutiny in recent memory. Unfortunately a significant part of that landscape has not been thoroughly surveyed. Until now."

    Islam in the African-American

    Author: Richard Brent Turner;

    Malcolm X and, more recently, Louis Farrakhan are two of the more visible signs of Islam's influence in the lives and culture of African Americans. Yet, as Richard Brent Turner shows, the involvement of black American with Islam reaches back to the earliest days of the African presence in North America. Part I of the book explores these roots in the Middle East, West Africa, and antebellum America. Part II tells the story of the 'Prophets of the City'--the leaders of the new urban-based African-American Muslim movements in the twentieth century.


    Islam And The Black American
    by Sherman A. Jackson

    Sherman Jackson offers a trenchant examination of the career of Islam among the blacks of America. Jackson notes that no one has offered a convincing explanation of why Islam spread among Blackamericans (a coinage he explains and defends) but not among white Americans or Hispanics. The assumption has been that there is an African connection. In fact, Jackson shows, none of the distinctive features of African Islam appear in the proto-Islamic, black nationalist movements of the early 20th century. Instead, he argues, Islam owes its momentum to the distinctively American phenomenon of "Black Religion," a God-centered holy protest against anti-black racism.


    Malcolm and the Cross:
    The Nation of Islam, Malcolm X, and Christianity

    Author: Louis A. Decaro;

    DeCaro continues his religious biography of Malcolm X (begun in On the Side of My People, 1996), shifting from the continuity of Islam in Malcolm's development to the impact of Christianity, particularly the distortion known as "white" Christianity. He again recognizes the influence of Louise Little, Malcolm's mother, in modeling an open but critical embrace of many religious and spiritual traditions and avoiding fanatical religiosity. Such an embrace characterizes DeCaro's critical assessment of the Nation of Islam and white Christianity alike. DeCaro, who admits to pastoral motives, expects his work to rouse anger, which for a book true to Malcolm X should not be surprising. Readers will come away from it with a better understanding of Malcolm X--and the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, and Billy Graham, too--and with a greater appreciation of the revolutionary potential of religious ideas in confrontation with such distortions as those that have sustained racism throughout U.S. history. (review 1)

    The mythic figure of Malcolm X conjures up a variety of images--black nationalist, extremist, civil rights leader, hero. But how often is Malcolm X understood as a religious leader, a man profoundly affected by his relationship with Allah?

    During Malcolm's life and since, the press has focused on the Nation of Islam's rejection of integration, offering an extremely limited picture of its ideology and religious philosophy. Mainstream media have ignored the religious foundation at the heart of the Nation and failed to show it in light of other separatist religious movements. With the spirituality of cultic black Islam unexplored and the most controversial elements of the Nation exploited, its most famous member, Malcolm X, became one of the most misunderstood leaders in history.

    A depiction of an ancient moor

    The name derives from the ancient Berber tribe of the Mauri and their kingdom, Mauritania, which became a Roman province after its last king Bocchus II willed it to Octavian in 33 BC. Mauritania lay in present day Morocco and Western Algeria. The name of Mauri was applied by the Romans to all non-Romanized natives of North Africa still ruled by their own chiefs, until the 3rd century AD. Some scholars propose that the characterization of the Islamic civilization in Iberia as "Moorish" is a misnomer which implies the predominance of Berber traits in the civilization, rather than Arab and Islamic ones. The Muslim conquest of Iberia was undertaken by Arab caliphates. The Arab Umayyad dynasty of Damascus was transplanted to Muslim Spain and was responsible for the incorporation of much of the culture and architecture from the old Umayyad capital. The soldiery of the first wave of invasions was derived predominantly from Berber peoples of North Africa.

    Christianity, Islam and the African race
    by Dr. Edward Wilmont Blyden

    An excellent book authored by Dr. Edward W. Blyden also known as Abd-ul-Karim, was originally published in 1887, the year in which Marcus Garvey was born. It is nevertheless surprisingly on-target in its analysis for our time and is a must read for every person seriously interested in African and African-American history. The First African Arabian Press obtained publishing rights to reproduce this magnificent work by a remarkable man, an intellectual giant whose contribution to mankind has been hidden from most of us for more than 100 years. 

    Rise 'N Unite - The Black Man's Back
    Author: Khalid A. T. Al-Mansour;
    represents a literary accomplishment. The book's treatment of logic and reason is totally understandable and enjoyable. Dr. Al-Mansour, the author of seventeen previously written books,  insists that the anchor to life and death has everything to do with the framework and competence for systematic reasoning. By using logic, the impossible becomes possible; self-confidence and -esteem flourish; global uncertainty becomes global brotherhood, peace, stability; political corruption becomes political and economic prosperity.

    White Lies Black People Believe
    Alfred Ali

    Aali5.jpg (22860 bytes)

    Alfred Ali - The White men of America have always been the educator of most Black men and women ever since the Blacks landed in this country. Black people were not allowed to read or write, and the LIES that were instilled in their minds have enslaved them more than the physical slavery.  The White man said he brought us here to benefit our lives, but instead he robbed us of our identity with orchestrated lies. Even some Blacks still believe those lies to this very day. The lies go on and do not end with the Blacks. Even the Indians (Native Americans) are the savage ones and the White men brought civilization. "Sure! Who are you kidding?" The truth is, the result of all these lies created monumental social problems still present with us today.


    Imam El Hajj Malik Shabazz
    (Malcolm X)

    "A race of people is like an individual man; until it uses its own talent, takes pride in its own history, expresses its own culture, affirms its own selfhood, it can never fulfill itself."

    Now you may be shocked by these words, but I have eaten from the same plate, drunk from the same glass, and prayed to the same God with fellow Muslims whose eyes were blue, whose hair was blonde, and whose skin was the whitest of white. And we were all brothers. True. People of all colors and races believing in one God, in one humanity.

    Now my first concern, of course, is with the group to which I belonged. For we more than any others are deprived of our inalienable rights. But I believe the true practice of Islam can remove the cancer of racism from the hearts and the souls of all Americans.

    elijah muhammad
    Honorable Elijah Muhammad - born October 1879, passed in 1975.  The teachings of the Elijah Muhammad would have a profound impact on Black American life. In a small amount of time the Nation of Islam became well known throughout the United States, buying land, opening businesses, and increasing its growth. Its strict moral discipline, devout religious adherence, healthy lifestyle, and seemingly miraculous ability to convert even those individuals whom many deemed "beyond hope", drew many to its ranks.
    Through the decades Elijah Muhammad and the NOI's messages of self-help, self-sufficency, self-defense, and self-love have shaped deeply the path of black politics. Elijah's legacy continues today as his teachings create converts throughout America and the Black world.

    Message to the Blackman in America
    by Elijah Muhammad
    According to countless mainstream news organs, Elijah Muhammad, by far, was the most powerful black man in America. Known more for the students he produced, like Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan and Muhammad Ali, this controversial man exposed the black man as well as the world to a teaching, till now, was only used behind closed doors of high degree masons and shriners.

    Writes: RUNOKO RASHIDI: "The Book of the Glory of the Blacks Over the Whites is a remarkable document.  It includes penetrating commentaries on great African heroes such as Antarah the Lion, Lokman--the celebrated sage of the East--and the African ancestry of the Prophet Muhammad himself.  According to Al-Jahiz, Abd al-Muttalib, the guardian of the sacred Kaaba, "fathered ten Lords, Black as the night and magnificent."  One of these men was Abdallah, the father of the Prophet Muhammad.

    Black People and Their Place in World History
    Author: Leroy Vaughn MD;


    The famous Arab historian Ibn Khaldun says that the name Ifriqiya was given after Ifriqos bin Qais bin Saifi, one of the Kings of Yemen. To Al-Bakri, the boundries of Ifriqiya were Barga on the East and Tangier on the West, which means that in addition to the Africa proper of the Romans, it included Tripolitania, Numidia and Mauritania. Today, by the use of the word Ifiriqiya or Africa, the Arabs as well as non-Arabs mean the entire continent of Africa which includes North Africa (including the Maghrib), East Africa, West Africa, Central Africa, and South Africa. It was significant that the first shelter of early Muslims was in Africa (Abyssinia, 615 CE).
