this is about you

this is what’s written between the lines

this is the scroll unfolded

this is the light at the end of the tunnel

this is what frees the soul from the body

this is the truth

and the truth is you can’t hide from the truth ’cause the truth is all there is

  1. Hello, you have a wonderful site and I would like to know if I could use some of your pics for a research project I am doing

  2. Hallo,

    Mr. Neves did find out, the first people from Alaska was black Aborigenes. I think, “Alaska” laid in “South-East Asia”, many thousands years before.
    The “heaven” was over this area else, during this time!
    This both opinions do fit together….!

  3. I enjoyed reading through the site. I’ve always had a problem with the way applications in the US cram middle east under Caucasian. I know some Middle Eastern people are classified as such due to genetics but, not all, especially when you travel the Hijaz southern Arabia and parts of Najd. Its a funny thing, once I was looking at an Encyclopedia a few years ago and saw the distribution of the races across the world as of some map in the late 1800’s or something. It had all of East and North Africa along with Arabia, Persia and Europe as origins of the Caucasian race. Felt like someone is trying to claim as much credit from other civilizations as they can.

    I’ve always argued that people of the Arabian peninsula and the Middle East are both African and Caucasian with some Asiatic mixtures. They are one of the oldest cosmopolitan peoples of the world, even if some tribes claim purity of race. I get annoyed when I have this discussion with members of some westernized scientists and sometimes just general groups of Arabs. They all site anthropology and bone fragments. I’m not a scientist, so I often get stumped with their arguments, but I am an artist and my focus is anatomy. I gotta say, there’s a difference between Arabs and Europeans and its not slight. Most of these anthropological studies were done mostly by Europeans in the 19th and early 20th century. Even the naming of the 3 races annoys me. Look closely (Caucasian refers to the region. Asiatic refers to the region. Negroid refers to the color. what?) I have no doubt that no one can argue with bone fragments to a certain degree, but there is no question in my mind that there was an agenda in naming the 3 groups. Especially, when you compare it to what I mentioned about religious notes on the birth of the races.

    Further more, most Middle Eastern minorities in Europe and America are from Northern Middle East, which is bound to have Caucasian (as well as asiatic and African) mixtures not only due to different invading civilizations from Europe, but by the link to these lands. But when it comes to Arabia and North Africa, the story is different. The problem we face as Arabs in this day and age, is that we latch on to the superior culture. So going with the ride that says we are all caucasian is like hitting the lottery for a lot of us. I don’t agree with that. In fact, I resent it.

    In School back in Saudi Arabia, we were taught about the races being born from the Prophet Noah, after the arc settled. There was Sam (father of the Semites (Arabs, hebrews, Armenians, Assyrians) and Ham (Father of the Africans) and Yafith (the father of the Europeans and Asians to some extent).

    Ham was described as much blackness/ darkness (Sawad) in the skin with some whiteness
    Sam much whiteness (as in lightness) in the skin with some blackness/ Darkness.
    Yafith (Red skinned with light hair and light eyes)

    The first two being strongly linked as two sides of the same coin, so to speak.

    Everyone before the 3 brothers were considered one race and probably adam al-lawn — extremely dark skinned. Adam is the Hebrew and Arabic word for extremely dark skinned and is specifically used to describe humans. it is why our father Adam is named as such. Even the word Asmar is a human description and is not used to describe animals or objects unless for poetic reasons.

    Just a small note, in the Hadith that describes Moses as Brown skinned, actually, he is assumed to be Darker. Because the Arabic equivalent of of Brown skinned is Asmar, like the Arabs and Ethiopians and South Indians. Moses and Adam were described as Adam al-lawn. Most Arabs in ancient times used the term Adam to describe what we generally regard as black. The lightness of skin you see in most northern Arabs (those who are not of turkish or European descent) today, which is that light brown/ beige tone due to lots of mixing over thousands of years. This color in Arabian culture is what is known as Abyad/ Safi (white or clear skin (where features are clearly seen, not as in clean or filthy). Most Africans, Arabs considered that color the lightest human tone. What we know as white today, was not perceived as white by the 2 mentioned races, as they almost never saw them in their original color due to sun-exposure. So they described them as the Humur (red people), as you mentioned in one of your writings, and much like how the native Americans in the Southern Parts of the US described them (red necks).

    As for part of Prophet Mohammed, you are absolutely correct with regards to Sitana (our lady) Hajar. She was Egyptian and was described as Asmar (brown skin/ Dark tan, etc.), like Jesus. The Prophet Mohammed’s color was not specifically pointed out, but I assume he was not anything near a European. He was often described to us in class as medium physically in all aspects and pleasant look with a permanent soft smile. (medium hight, medium built, medium complexion, Wavy black hair that was just below the jaw line and, if I’m not mistaken, eyes that seemed naturally drawn with kuhul or eyeliner). Medium cannot be Abiad or white otherwise they would have just called him that (as in beige or olive skinned). He was not Asmar or Adam otherwise they would have called him that too. He was definitely not Ahmar or from the Humur (Red). He must have been somewhere in the middle between Asmar and Abyad, but I speculate.

    The only prophet i heard was white-skinned (in the European sense) with blue eyes and red hair was the prophet, David. But I’m not entirely sure about that.

    • Hi, your thoughts is very interesting, and you mention that you are an artist, and what I know is SAUDI mean dack,,,, universe ara dark
      And king of colors is black……..African are not black they’re just a color people……Arab and European they use words black to African
      US to discrimination, or racism.because in universe, we have colorsmen or pinkmen…..the word black is mix of the three primary colors.

    • شكرا يا نصر
      I’ve lived in the Arabian Gulf for quite a few years, but there are some things you just can’t learn unless you’re native. Arabs are a lot like Dominicans, in the sense of being in complete race denial.

      We could dither about sociological issues all day, but here’s what’s really important: العقيدة

      The Last Day is a matter of aqeeda, and Jesus/Eesaa and the Anti-Christ-Dajjaal figure prominently into that. Did Prophet Muhammad not say that every prophet taught his followers about the Dajjaal? So if we go into race denial then we will misidentify them, expecting a “white” savior and associating dark skin with evil and negativity, when it is actually the opposite, as per the Bukhaari Hadeeth:

      No, By Allah, the Prophet did not tell that Jesus was of red complexion but said, “While I was asleep circumambulating the Ka’ba (in my dream), suddenly I saw a man of brown complexion and lank hair walking between two men, and water was dropping from his head. I asked, ‘Who is this?’ The people said, ‘He is the son of Mary.’ Then I looked behind and I saw a red-complexioned, fat, curly-haired man, blind in the right eye which looked like a bulging out grape. I asked, ‘Who is this?’ They replied, ‘He is Ad-Dajjal.’ (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 55, Number 650)

      A lot of Arabs are in denial or self-delusion about skin color, but then again, so are most people, including dark-skinned people. This is part of the truth that we must tell:

      Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr: The Prophet said, “Convey (my teachings) to the people even if it were a single sentence, and tell others the stories of People of Israel (which have been taught to you), for it is not sinful to do so. And whoever tells a lie on me intentionally, will surely take his place in the (Hell) Fire.” (Sahih Bukhari. Hadith 3202)
