The statues of ancient Buddhas of the East depicted him as havingwoolly hair-always shown in cornrows, or “peppercorn” texture of small tight curls. These statues also clearly show him tohave had Africoid facial features- full nose and lips. In most ancient temples throughout Asia, he is shown as jet Black. In fact, inmany ancient temples of Asia and India, statues of the gods and goddesses have Africoid features with woolly hair in the peppercorn style, while some even have dreadlocks. These pictures of Buddha portray him in no uncertain terms as a Negro with kinky, coiled hair, a flat nose and full lips.
The mid-twentieth century scholar, Hamid Abdul Qadir postulates that the Prophet Dhu’l-Kifl, meaning “the one from Kifl,” mentioned twice in the Quran as patient and good, refers to Shakyamuni Buddha. Qadir explains that “Kifl” is the Arabicized form of Kapila, short for Kapilavastu. It should be remembered that the consonant ‘p’ is not present in Arabic, and the nearest one to it is ‘fa’. Hence, Kapeel transliterated into Arabic becomes Kifl.
He also proposes that the Qur’anic mention of the fig tree (At-Tin 1-5) refers to Buddha as well, since he attained to enlightenment at the foot of one.
Now let’s take a virtual tour the Muslim world, past and present…
Makka is Islam’s holiest city. It is where the Qur-an was revealed. It houses Masjid al-Haram (The Sacred Place of Prostration) the direction to which all Muslims pray. Recently, the government currently controlling Makka has overseen the tallest clock tower in the world (apparently overlooking the fact that most Muslims have mobile phones to tell time with). Believe it or not, that clock, that monument, has swastikas. Look how the white lines intersect:
We will look at swastika use in what is now Iran and Tajikistan.
Like other post-Soviet countries, Tajikistan has taken a fresh look its history following independence in 1991. The result is a state campaign to promote the notion that the Tajiks as a Aryan nation – and the widespread use of the swastika. (Aryan Myth and Metahistory)
Anatolian Peninsula (Modern Turkey)
This was the center of power of the Uthmani (“Ottoman”) Empire, which ruled over many Muslim territories for centuries.
The Indus River Valley civilization (mostly in modern Pakistan) is where the names ‘India’ and ‘Hindu’ come from. It is from this civilization that many religions like Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism, famous for their use of the swastika, ultimately originated.
The Mughal (Mongol) dynasties which ruled India used this symbol in their architecture. They either adopted its use from locals, or had already been using it.
Andalus (Modern Iberian Peninsula/Spain)
Andalus was a medieval Muslim cultural domain and territory occupying at its peak most of what are today Spain and Portugal.
The fact that Spain was the first [West Asian] country to acquire technical supremacy at the dawn of modern times and for a certain period dominate the world can only be explained by the [Muslim] contribution during the time of its colonization. (Diop, Cheikh Anta, Precolonial Black Africa (Chicago: Lawrence Hill Books, 1987), p.36)
As you can see from the calligraphy especially, the swastika is a consequence of lines intersecting at right angles. Muslims have historically avoided depicting living things in artwork, so geometric patterns are where they focused their creativity. Perhaps at least some of the swastikas are unintentional apexes that allow uninterrupted patterns. However, some are obviously a continuation of pre-Islamic use of the swastika by central Asian populations and their diaspora, which includes Arabia. Which brings us to the next question:
But is using the swastika symbol Islamic?
No, but neither is using the crescent moon and star, the supposed symbol of Islam.
Though the crescent was originally a secular symbol of authority for Muslim rulers, it is now often used to symbolize the Islamic faith. However, the crescent was not a symbol used for Islam by Muhammad or any other early Muslim rulers, as the Islamic religion is, in fact, against appointing “holy symbols” (so that during the early centuries of Islam, Muslim authorities simply didn’t want any geometric symbols to be used to symbolize Islam, in the way that the cross symbolizes Christianity, the menorah was a commonly occurring symbol of Judaism, etc.). This is why early Islamic coins were covered with Arabic writing, but contained no visual symbols. (wikipedia)
The crescent, like the swastika, is a pre-Islamic symbol.
Unlike the swastika, however, whose origins are debated, the crescent and star have clear polytheist (mushrik/pagan) significance:
The crescent is one of the oldest symbols known to humanity. Before Islam, the crescent was the symbol of Sassanids and after capturing Persian lands, the crescent has been adopted by Arab Muslims and later by other Muslims. The crescent and star also appears on pre-Islamic coins of South Arabia.
In the 12th century the crescent and star were adopted by the Turks and since then the crescent has been a frequent symbol used by powerful Muslim empires such as the Ottomans and the Mughals. It is a historical symbol of the Turks, associated especially with the Ottoman Empire, but pre-Islamic Turkic nations such as the Göktürks used the crescent and star figure on their coins. (wikipedia)
So it’s no worse to use the swastika on a mosque, or as a Muslim symbol (it obviously can’t be Islamic) than it is to use the crescent.
Can a Pagan Symbol Represent Islam?
Swastikas, crescents, stars, eagles, etc. may or may not be “bad”, but a government that uses a pagan symbol doesn’t seem to be saying they represent Allah as sovereign. Coincidentally, no government is doing a good job implementing the authority of Allah and his Messenger (sA’a&s).
“And he shares his authority with no one (Qur-an 18.26)
Decorating Mosques is a Sign of Spiritual Decline and Materialism
“Narrated / Authority of: Anas bin Malik: The Messenger of Allah (sAaws) said: ‘The Hour will not begin until the people compete in (building) masjids (mosques).’” (Sunan Ibn Majah) (ahadith.co.uk)
‘Umar ordered that the mosque be rebuilt and he said: Protect the people from rain, but beware of using red or yellow (for adornment) and distracting the people.
Anas said: They build mosques and boast about that, but they do not use them for worship except rarely.
Ibn ‘Abbaas said: You are going to adorn (mosques) as the Jews and Christians adorn (their places of worship) (Islam Question & Answer)
Verily the Safa and Marwa [two small mountains now located in the Masjid al-Haram in Makka] are among the Symbols of Allah. So, if one visits the House in the Season or at other times, there is no blame on him if he should compass them round. If any one obeys his own impulse to good, be sure that God is Thankful and All Knowing (Qur-an 2.158)
And [mention, O Muhammad], when We designated for Abraham the site of the House, [saying], “Do not associate anything with Me and purify My House for those who perform Tawaf and those who stand [in prayer] and those who bow and prostrate.
And proclaim to the people the Hajj [pilgrimage]; they will come to you on foot and on every lean camel; they will come from every distant pass –
That they may witness benefits for themselves and mention the name of Allah on known days over what He has provided for them of [sacrificial] animals. So eat of them and feed the miserable and poor…
Then let them end their untidiness and fulfill their vows and perform Tawaf around the ancient House.
That [is so]. And whoever honors the symbols of Allah – indeed, it is from the piety of hearts. (Qur-an 22 (Suratu-lHajj))
From the Volta to the Congo to the Nile, from scarification to gold weights to hieroglyphics, the swastika has been used throughout Afriqa for a long time…
When you see hear the word “swastika or see this symbol
what are the first words that come to your mind?
“Blonde hair and blue eyes.”
Then where would you guess these come from?
An educated guess would be India. But no, they are all from Africa. That’s right Sub-Saharan, “Black” A-F-R-I-C-A. They are gold dust weights used by the Ashanti, to be more precise.
No, not this Ashanti…
The ones who make kinte cloth…
They are also called Akan. The Akan occupy a large part of West Africa including parts of Ghana and the Ivory Coast and include many sub-ethnic groups such as the Baule and the Asante (Ashanti).  The Akan were producing them to weigh gold dust which was their currency, thus the name ‘gold weights’. When used on the gold weight, the swastika was a symbol of currency, expressing power, money, wealth and integrity. The idea and the implementation of gold-based currency came from the Akan people of modern-day Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana. 
The swastika is also one of the Akan people’s famous Adinkra symbols. Look at number 12 below:
According to one source, the swastika is referred to by the Akan as a monkey’s foot.  Another source says it is called Kode Emower Ewa (‘talons of the eagle’), represents devotion and service and is shaved on the back of the heads of the Queen Mother’s servants.  Still another source names it Nkotimsefuopua, claiming similarly that certain attendants on the Queen Mother who dressed their hair in this fashion. 
The Asante also weave the swastika into their cloth. See the top left corner below:
The above is a kinte cloth symbol called Apremo-Canon. It is a symbol of resistance against foreign domination, and superior military strategy. This motif represents the superior military strategy with which Akan nations such as the Asante and Akwamu defeated the West Asians who had superior arms. 
But how could this be? How did Africans learn about the swastika?
If your idea of swastika is the symbol of a Nordic (tall, blonde, blue-eyed) race who conquered India from the north before invading West Asia (“Europe”), that’s a good question.
The idea is not to decouple the swastika symbol and the Aryans. Rather, one must decouple the Aryan from Nordic, and race from ethnicity.
Arya means pure or good in Sanskrit. In the holy Vedas the good people were called Arya.
So “Arya” means, in short, “noble”. It appears to be an adjective, and can not refer to a group of people. If it is a noun, it translates to “nobility” Either way, it refers to the CHARACTER, NOT the APPEARANCE of certain people. Note: The word “Aryan” does not appear.
So how did the word Aryan come into existence, and how did it become associated with a blonde, blue-eyed master race?
Fredrich Max Muller, a staunch German nationalist and Christian missionary, was Professor of Sanskrit at Oxford labored for years translating the Vedas into English.
In 1851 Muller wrote his first article in English wherein he used the word “Aryan” for the first time in the sense of a race.
Max Muller’s good friend and fellow Indologist Paul then popularized the word “Aryan” in France. Soon many Christian scholars were seized upon by the theory of Aryan race. In 1859 Swiss linguist Adolph Pictet wrote that the Aryan race was the
“…one destined by Providence to reign one day supreme over the entire earth . . . They were the race of Aryans. …”
The notion of “Aryan” had become, in a few short years, the emblem of European manifest destiny over the world, a signet coined in the language of scholarship which gave Europeans a racial and religious mantle of superiority.
But the people weren’t fooled. Initially
all attempts to correlate the Aryan language to Aryan race were not only unsuccessful but also absurd”. Even at that time many academics opposed the Aryan invasion theory.
So if Aryan refers to a race, it is not a race in the way we usually think of it. “Race” to us means people with the same skin color, culture and language. That is actually ethnicity, though. Ethnicity means related identity, but race means similar qualities. And the people with noble character (‘arya’) can be found all over the world. Maybe they use the same symbols to recognize each other:
