Arabs, Muslims & African Slavery
In this article, I intend to enlighten hundreds of millions of people who are under the erroneous impression, that the African Slave trade was the sole responsibility of the Christian Europeans, the White Race.
As usual with Arabs, Muslims and their apologists, this myth has been fostered and propagated by Arabs, Black Muslim Americans and Muslims in general to distract the attention of billions of people around the world who have not researched the subjects concerned.
I too, before having made the intense effort of learning, exploring and studying these topics, was under exactly the same belief; but I found remarkable books written by scholarly black Africans as well as others, that truly opened my eyes to the discovery of another extremely successful grand deception perpetrated by Arabs and Muslims upon unsuspecting humanity.
Dear Americans, the success of Muslims in deceiving, misinforming, deforming and contorting both history and reality over a period of almost 1400 years has been astounding and continues into the present.
The greatest tragedy about this particular subject is the reality, that most of the descendants of African slavery – the black people in the Americas, around the world as well as among African blacks – are totally ignorant of the actual facts.
Ladies and gentlemen, the worst, most inhumane and most diabolical institution of the Black African Slave Trade, was initiated, refined, perpetrated, systematized and implemented by the Muslim Arabs to start with, and later aided and abetted by the African black converts to Islam.
Contrary to all the false propaganda of Arabs, Muslims, BLM and other apologists for Islam, slavery was NOT created by the White races, because it had existed throughout human history and practiced by every tribe, culture, civilization, racial group and religion.
In fact, the very word slavery has its root in the name SLAV, based upon the Slavic peoples of Europe who were subjugated by other Europeans.
It is not common knowledge that Arabs associate Africans with slavery. In Arabic, ‘Abd‘, is synonymous with the meaning of Slave; for example, Abd Allah, means literally the Slave of Allah. In the Arabic language, all Black Peoples are degradingly and insultingly called ‘Abeed’, plural for ‘Slaves’.
While much has been written concerning the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, surprisingly little attention has been given to the Islamic slave trade across the Sahara, the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean.
While the European involvement in the African Trans -Atlantic slave trade to the Americas lasted for just over 300 years, the Arab involvement in the African slave trade has lasted 1400 years, and in some parts of the Muslim world, is still continuing to this day.
The birth of Muhammadan Islam and the Arab conquests, brought about the inception of institutionalized, organized and religiously sanctioned slave trade, on an obscenely massive and global scale.
In fact, Muhammad’s Quran allows the taking of slaves as ‘booty’, or ‘reward’ for wars of aggression (Jihad) against any and all Infidels/ Kuffar (80% of the current human population).
This had led to an enormous number of Muslim so called ‘Holy Wars’/ ‘Jihad’ in Arabic. There was, and is, absolutely nothing ‘holy’ about these wars which are primarily to plunder, slaughter, rape, subjugate, enslave and or rob other human beings of their wealth, produce, freedom and dignity.
Arabs and Muslims attacked other non-Muslim peoples to achieve these objectives. Incredible and heinous abuses have occurred (and continue) throughout the history of Muhammadan Islam regarding the treatment of slaves.
By the Middle Ages, the Arabic word “abd” was in general used to denote a Black slave while the word “mamluk” referred to a White slave.
Ibn Khaldun (1332 – 1406), the pre-eminent Arab
medieval historian and social thinker wrote: “The Negro nations are as a rule submissive to slavery, because they have attributes that are quite similar to dumb animals.”
It should also be noted that tens of thousands of black slaves were castrated by the Muslim Arabs “based on the assumption that the blacks had an ungovernable sexual appetite.”
For example, when the Fatimid Caliphate came to power in Egypt (c.960 AD), they slaughtered all the tens of thousands of black military slaves of the previous caliphate and raised an entirely new slave army. Some of these slaves were conscripted into the army at age ten. From Persia to Egypt to Morocco, slave armies from 30,000 up to 250,000 became common-place.
The Arab and Muslim slave trade took place across the Sahara Desert, from the coast of the Red Sea, and from East Africa across the Indian Ocean. The Trans-sahara trade was conducted along six major slave routes.
Just in the 19th Century, for which there are more accurate records, 1.2 million slaves were brought across the Sahara into the Middle East, as well as a further 450,000 down the Red Sea and 442,000 from East African coastal ports.
That is a total of 2 million black slaves – just in the 1800’s. At least 8 million more were calculated to have died before reaching the Muslim slave markets.
A comparison of the Islamic slave trade to the American slave trade reveals some extremely interesting contrasts.
While two out of every three slaves shipped across the Atlantic were men, the proportions were reversed in the Islamic slave trade. Two women for every man were enslaved by the Muslims.
While the mortality rate for slaves being transported across the Atlantic was as high as 10%, the percentage of slaves dying in transit in the Trans Sahara and East African slave trade was a staggering 80 to 90%.
While almost all the slaves shipped across the Atlantic were for agricultural work, most of the slaves destined for the Muslim Middle East were for sexual exploitation as concubines, in harems and or for military service.
While many children were born to slaves in the Americas, and millions of their descendants are citizens in Brazil and the USA to this day, very few descendants of the slaves that ended up in the Middle East survived.
While most slaves who arrived in the Americas could marry and have families, most of the male slaves destined for the Middle East were castrated, and the majority of the children born to the women were killed at birth.
It is estimated that possibly as many as 11 million Africans were transported across the Atlantic (95% of which went to South and Central America, mainly to Portuguese, Spanish and French possessions. Only 5% of the slaves ended up in the United States).
However, a minimum of 28 million Africans were enslaved in the Muslim Middle East. Since at least 80% of those captured by Muslim slave traders were calculated to have died before reaching the slave markets, it is believed that the death toll from 1400 years of Arab and Muslim slave raids into Africa could have been over 112 million.
When added to the number of those sold in the slave markets, the total number of African victims of the Trans Saharan and East African slave trade could be significantly higher than 140 million people.
While Christian Reformers (all White people) spearheaded the anti-slavery abolitionist movements in Europe, North America and Great Britain mobilized her Navy, throughout most of the 19th Century, to intercept slave ships and set the captives free, there has not been, a single case of opposition whatsoever to slavery, from within the Arab and Muslim world.
Even after Britain outlawed the slave trade in 1807 and Europe abolished the slave trade in 1815, Muslim slave traders enslaved a further two million Africans. This, despite vigorous British Naval activity and military intervention to prevent the Islamic slave trade.
Nearly 100 years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in America, and 130 years after all slaves within the British Empire were set free by parliamentary decree, Saudi Arabia and Yemen, in 1962 and Mauritania in 1980, begrudgingly removed legalized slavery from their statute books; and this only after international pressure was brought to bear. Today numerous international organizations document that slavery still continues in some Muslim countries.
What is supremely obscene about this whole subject is the Muslim and Arab culture of absolute denial regarding their complicity in the African Slave Trade as well as the extreme ignorance of African black peoples in general, about the reality of their past and present conditions.
Black Americans, such as Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, congressman Keith Ellison, BLM and Ilhan Omar – to name just a few – and other black American Muslims, must either be utterly stupid or in total denial regarding Arab and African Muslims’ complicity in the genocide of the indigenous African tribes for the sole purpose of slavery.
It is obviously far easier intellectually, for black American Muslims to blame White Christians for slavery than admit, that their Islamic belief system, based on the CULT of Muhammad, that caused over 140 million Africans to be exterminated and tens of millions enslaved.
Most important of all, the White slavers did NOT go into the heart of Africa to enslave Africans. They remained on their ships awaiting the arrival of human chattel, brought from the belly of Africa, by Muslim Arab and African converts to Islam.
The statistics and reports above are based upon the log books kept at the African Slave ports, ship logs, travelers’ reports, eyewitness accounts, etc.
Muhammad’s Quran sanctifies Slavery. It allows the taking of slaves as ‘booty’, or ‘reward’ for wars of aggression (Jihad) against any and all Infidels/ Kuffar (most of the human population).
After all, as the leader of the first Organized Crime Syndicate in history, Muhammad (the foremost and best example of a male according to Muslims) bought and owned slaves. He invariably raped enslaved females captured in ambush and raids upon non-Muslim tribes, and traded many of them.
Ladies and gentlemen, the facts and reality of Islam’s complicity in the African Slave Trade and their inhumane depravity, are infinitely more devastating, more staggering and dastardly, than all the nightmare fictions in the world.
The only inference arrived at to explain the enormous number of Contradictions between Muhammad’s Quran and the Bible, Historical dislocations, Asinine statements, Obscene numbers of Hatemongering, Warmongering, Racist, Intolerant, Misogynist and Vile verses that fill the pages of the Quran, is to come to the following and ONLY logical conclusions:
No god called Allah nor an angel called Jibril, ever revealed anything to Muhammad because every letter, word, verse/aya and chapter/surah in the Quran, are the sole product of Muhammad’s imagination, the secretions of his warped mind – representing his Alter Ego and or his Auto Biography- but very cleverly projected into the unsuspecting mouths of Allah and Jibril (Gabriel), to give them the aura of sanctity and divinity.
In a nutshell: Allah, Jibril and Satan in the Quran are all one and the same; Muhammad the ventriloquist.
I challenge any Muslim (or any reader), to prove anything that I reveal, as either misleading or wrong.
