Celebrating Black History Month in the Americas
Many people are unaware of the fact that millions of Muslims entered the Americas as Slaves and political prisoners during the Atlantic Slave Trade. Many were Scholars and activists who led Slave revolts in Haiti, Jamaica, Surinam, Brazil and the USA. Others resisted in silent ways and succeeded in leaving a legacy that is coming to the surface today. Eye witness reports, written documents, autobiographies and records are bringing to life this amazing story.
Here is an actual portrait of Ayuba Suleiman Diallo (known as Job Ben Solomon) (1701-1773) a Fulbe Scholar born in Bundu, Senegal; captured and enslaved but eventually won his freedom and returned home. He wrote the whole Qur’an from his memory and maintained his faith throughout his trials and suffering.
No wonder Islam is still spreading rapidly among African Americans despite the negative propaganda!!!
Surely Almighty Allah has power over all affairs.
