Last Sunday, Belgian public TV broadcasted episode 3 of the BBC program Around the world in 80 Faiths. This time the focus was on Africa, including Ethiopian Islam and Ethiopian orthodox Christianity. Peter Owen-Jones made a casual remark that the Prophet Muhammad fled to Ethiopia to escape “from the persecution of the ruling Quraysh tribe of Mecca” (eg, Wiki).
Peter Owen-Jones‘ remark triggered a question inside me: Is it possible that Muhammad was also of black Sumerian descent, similar to Noah, Shem, Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon and Jesus? The answer appears to be a simple YES.
Wiki: Aminah bint Wahb was the mother of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. She was a member of the Banu Zuhrah clan in the tribe of Quraysh who claimed descent from Ibrahim (Abraham) through his son Ismail (Ishmael). Also see this source.
Others have arrived at a similar conclusion.
The deep historic links between black-headed Sumerians might be an explanation for the following. Quora: “The Prophet said: Let the Abyssinians (“Ethiopians”) alone as long as they let you alone, and let the Turks alone as long as they leave you alone.” The link with Turkey might relate to Jafar‘s recital to the Christian King of Aksum on Maryam (Mary), mother of Isa (Jesus). Mary’s house is a Catholic and Muslim shrine near Ephesus, Turkey.
The concept of Abrahamic religions (ie, modern Judaism, Christianity and Islam) gets a total new meaning to me. Mahatma Gandhi‘s conclusion was right: “God has no religion.” A conclusion that “God hates Religion” is even warranted by Amos 5:21 (see Book of Amos from the Old Testament and Hebrew Bible).
The bitter irony of the above is that Arabs and Whites have been fighting and killing each other for centuries over a long and royal dynasty of black African prophets who were all related to each other: Noah, Shem, Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus and Muhammad.
Albert Einstein once said: “The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don’t know.” This is paraphrase of an ancient saying by Aristotle: “The more you know, the more you know you don’t know”. These were my opening lines in part 1 of my blogs on the Sumerian civilization.
