Muhammad and Africans: Slaves, Epidemics and Racism

Qu’ran 3:106 says: “On the Day [some] faces will turn white and [some] faces will turn black. As for those whose faces turn black, [to them it will be said], “Did you disbelieve after your belief? Then taste the punishment for what you used to reject.”

that the founder of Islam, Muhammad referred to Africans a raisin heads and said a dream of a black woman was the sign of a coming epidemic. He also said, “Only people with white faces will be saved…!

John M Hummasti (Yochanan Ezra ben Avraham)
@HikindDov @JNS Remind @LouisFarrakhan, and @NickCannon that the founder of Islam, Muhammad owned black slaves and had some not nice things to say about Africans <


Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah’s Apostle said, “You should listen to and obey, your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin.” (Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 89, Number 256)

Hadith; vol.9:162,163: Muhammad warned that dreams of black women meant disease was forthcoming. Black Muslims today are so uninformed that they don’t even understand that Muhammad had many black slaves and called them raisin heads (Hadith vol.1:662, vol.9:256 )

Muslims are told that Africans “annoy the Prophet” (Ishaq 243), have hearts “grosser than a donkey” (Surah 9:61) and that blacks should be left to die if injured, and should be denied intercession and entrance to heaven (Bukhari: Volume 4, Book 52, Number 137).

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 91, Number 368:

Narrated ‘Umar:I came and behold, Allah’s Apostle was staying on a Mashroba (attic room) and a black slave of Allah’s Apostle was at the top if its stairs. I said to him, “(Tell the Prophet) that here is ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab (asking for permission to enter).” Then he admitted me. … (cf. Bukhari 3.648, 6.435, 7.119)

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 182:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:Allah’s Apostle was on a journey and he had a black slave called Anjasha, and he was driving the camels (very fast, and there were women riding on those camels). Allah’s Apostle said, “Waihaka (May Allah be merciful to you), O Anjasha! Drive slowly (the camels) with the glass vessels (women)!”
