You are the Canaanites and Moabites & Moors

You are the Canaanites and Moabites

"You are what your ancient forefathers were without doubt or contradiction..."

In this year of 2013 of this electrified age, much information has been made available to the masses of the world. Prophet Noble Drew Ali was the only leader that came and gave us, the Moors of America who are labeled with the false misnomers of black people, colored folks, Negroes, and African Americans, the true history of our our great ancestry. The Prophet said that there was still much wisdom for us to learn and that if he told us everything then, that we would go right back to sleep.

For years, certain information was systematically hidden from the public about our Moabite and Canaanite ancestry. Afrocentric scholars were so busy trying to prove that the Egyptians were a so called black people (they never called themselves this), and fighting against the precepts of Christianities version of events, that they got lost in the proverbial sauce. For this reason, any reliable data about the information that the Prophet gave to us concerning our descent from Canaan and Moab was wholly dismissed as fallacious. A professor of the University of Iowa by the name of Richard Brent Turner who wrote the book Islam in the African-American Experience and said on page 93 that "Clearly, some of Noble Drew Ali’s ideas were ‘theosophical lore without historical foundation." I have found over the years many writers who have said similar in what appears to an attempt to discredit the Prophet and his mission. I say that to say, how can a college professor not do his research and present an extremely biased opinion without actually researching the historical information that was given us by the Prophet?

I grew up in a housing projects in Far Rockaway, Queens, N.Y. so how is that, I have, by the grace of Allah, done the research that backs up every historical claim that the Prophet made, which a college professor has claimed has no historical foundation? How can a man from out of the projects who never went to college let alone finished high school, who merely achieved a G.E.D., be able to present actual historical proof to prove that what the Prophet brought to us was in fact historically accurate, but the man making the claim against, an actual college professor, infers with a surety that, it is pretty much misinformation if, and I stress IF, this man is not working for the very people that wish you to not have this information so that we can be awakened on this land? Think that over you Moors...

Noble Drew Ali explains two portions of history in the Holy Koran of the Moorish Science Temple of America, chapter 45 and 48. The Prophet informs us that:

"The inhabitants of Africa are the descendants of the ancient Canaanites from the land of Canaan. Old man Cush and his family are the first inhabitants of Africa who came from the land of Canaan. His father Ham and his family were second. Then came the word Ethiopia, which means the demarcation line of the dominion of Amexem, the first true and divine name of Africa. The dividing of the land between the father and the son. The dominion of Cush, North-East and South-East Africa and North-West and South-West was his father's dominion of Africa. In later years many of their bretheren from Asia and the Holy Lands joined them. The Moabites from the land of Moab who received permission from the Pharaohs of Egypt to settle and inhabit North-West Africa; they were the founders and are the true possessors of the present Moroccan Empire. With their Canaanite, Hittite, and Amorite bretheren who sojourned from the land of Canaan seeking new homes. Their dominion and inhabitation extended from North-East and South-West Africa, across great Atlantis even unto the present North, South, and Central America and also Mexico and the Atlantis Islands; before the great earthquake, which caused the great Atlantic Ocean. The River Nile was dredged and made by the ancient Pharaohs of Egypt, in order to trade with the surrounding kingdoms. Also the Niger river was dredged by the great Pharaoh of Egypt in those ancient days for trade, and it extends eastward from the River Nile, westward across the great Atlantic. It was used for trade and transportation. According to all true and divine records of the human race there is no negro, black, or colored race attached to the human family, because all the inhabitants of Africa were and are of the human race, descendants of the ancient Canaanite nation from the holy land of Canaan. What your ancient forefathers were, you are today without doubt or contradiction. There is no one who is able to change man from the descendant nature of his forefathers; unless his power extends beyond the great universal Creator Allah Himself."

At first, even I must admit, I was taken aback by these claims. I wholly rejected them until I truly became a member of the M.S.T. of A. and sought to prove that this man Noble Drew Ali could not just have stooped to making this up, why would he? I began doing my research to these claims and every last one of them panned out with the exception of the word Amexem being the true and divine name of Africa. I want to go to chapter 45 of our Moorish Holy Koran as well where the Prophet explains our history and the the Moors as the genetic progenitors of the Asiatic nations:

"The key of civilization was and is in the hands of the Asiatic nations. The Moorish, who were ancient Moabites, and the founders of the Holy City of Mecca. The Egyptians who were the Hamathites, and of a direct descendant of Mizraim, the Arabians, the seed of Hagar, Japanese and Chinese. The Hindoos of India, the descendants of the ancient Canaanites, Hittites, and Moabites of the land of Canaan. The Asiatic nations of North, South, and Central America: the Moorish Americans and Mexicans of North America, Brazilians, Argentinians and Chilians in South America. Columbians, Nicaraguans, and the natives of San Salvador in Central America, etc. All of these are Moslems. The Turks are the true descendants of Hagar, who are the chief protectors of the Islamic Creed of Mecca; beginning from Mohammed the First, the founding of the uniting of Islam, by the command of the great universal God--Allah."

The early indefatigable scholar of Ancient Asiatic culture, Godfrey Higgins, had this to say about an ancient city of the so called blacks:

“It was the opinion of Sir William Jones, that a great nation of Blacks formerly possessed the dominion of Asia, and held the seat of empire at Sidon. These must have been the people called by Mr. Maurice Cushites or Cuthites, described in Genisis; and the opinion that they were Blacks is corroborated by the translators of the Pentateuch, called the Seventy, constantly rendering the word Cush by Ethiopia. It is very certain that, if the opinion be well founded, we must go for the time when this empire flourished to a period anterior to all our regular histories. It can only be known to have existed from accidental circumstances, which have escaped amidst the ruins of empires and the wrecks of time. Of this nation we have no account; but it must have flourished after the deluge. And, as our regular chronological systems fill up the time between the flood and what is called known undoubted history; if it be allowed to have existed, its existence will of course prove that no dependance can be placed on the parts of that history. It will shew that all the early chronology is false; for the story of this empire is not told. It is certain that its existence can only be known from insulated circumstances, collected from various quarters, and combining to establish the fact. But if I succeed in collecting a sufficient number to carry conviction to an impartial mind, the empire must be allowed to have existed” [1]

The Asiatic society was founded by a man named Sir WIlliam Jones which was dedicated to the study of the eastern history. Godfrey Higgins thought the Moorish (misnomer blacks) progenitors to humanity could be found in ancient Chaldea while William Jones insisted, based on finds that he had reviewed, ruled the whole of the eastern world including the area encompassing Egypt from ancient Sidon which was anciently the capital city of Canaan as can be seen in the quote above. In the El Amarna letters, which were a series of diplomatic correspondences between Egypt and the rulers what the French call the Levant (from the direction of the sun rise)​. We find a striking letter from the rulers of Gubal named, Rib-Hadda and/or his successor Ili-Rapih, pleading for assistance from the ruling pharaoh (possibly Akhenaten) against the Hapiru (Hebrews of Joshua). This was between the years of 1350-1335 B.C., the years closely attributed to the raiding of Canaan by Joshua (Isrealites). In EA 139 of the Armana Letters (EA meaning “EL ARMANA”) under the title “A new voice, an old story”, sent by Ili-Rapih, we read:

“To the king, [my] lord my sun: Message of Ili-Rapih, your servant: message of Gu(b)la, your maidservant. I fall at the feet of the lord, the Sun, 7 times and [7 times]. Do not neglect Gu-la, your city and the city of your ancestors from most ancient times. Moreover, behold Gu-la! Just as Hikuptah, so is Gu-la to the king, my lord. Do not neglect the delicts of a servant as for he acted as he pleased in the lands of the King...” [emphasis mines]

It is clear that Ili-Rapih, ruler of Gubal, is showing the highest degree of reverence that one can show a pharaoh in this correspondence. Surely, he would not have called Gubal “your city” and the “city of your ancestors from most ancient times” if this were not truth as such a statement could have been looked at with the highest degree of disrespect. Reason avers, that this Pharaoh was indeed one of the sons of this ancient city of Canaan and the whole context of the above asserts some form of verity and validity to what the Prophet Noble Drew Ali has relayed to us in this opening verse of chapter 47. Diodorus Sicilus claims that the Cushites told him that the Egyptians were a colony drawn out of them by Osiris [2]​. All archaeologists agree that at some point, Egypt became settled by those outside of that area. These were the veteran craftsman, the master masons of old. The descendants of Joshua, called “Hebrews” and “Jews” today, have written in the Psalms of their Torah at 83:4-7:

“come they say, let us destroy them as a nation. That the name of Israel be remembered no more. With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you – the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagarites,Gebal, Ammon and Amelek. Philistia, with the people of Tyre. Even Assyria has joined them to lend strength to the descendants of Lot.”

These are the predecessors to the Moorish colonies that would later settle in North Africa after being driven from their homeland, Canaan. It is Israel which displaced them but the Torah reads as if these, our ancestors are the aggressors. The master masons of Gebal have always furnished the building materials for Kings as the bible undoubtedly notes at 1Kings 5:18 when it says “The craftsman of Solomon and Hiram and the men of Gebal...”

The Egyptians are called the descendants of Ham from just about every credible source that you can research. Prophet Noble Drew Ali, along with other notable scholars like Rudolph Windsor who wrote the book From Babylon to Timbuctoo, says that the people have Ham coming from a place eastward (the Asiatic lands) outside of what we know of today as Africa, and then spread in the land. The biblical narrative agrees and says that Ham once occupied the southern border of the province of Canaan, which gives us the same exact boundary as Hamath which in this sense, coupled with the revelation of Prophet Noble Drew Ali, makes it conclusive when we string together texts and geographical descriptions.

“These mentioned by their names were princes in their families: and the house of their fathers increased greatly. And they went to the entrance of Gedor, even unto the east side of the valley, to seek pasture for their flocks. And they found fat pasture and good, and the land was wide, and quiet, and peaceable;for they of Ham had dwelt there of old.”1 Chronicles 4:38-40 King James Version (KJV)​​​​​​​​​​​​

Speaking to the new inhabitants which are the olive skin toned Asiatics who live in this places now where the dark olive skin toned people once dwelt. So when we look at the antiquity of which the bible is supposed to be recording, and we focus on the fact that the above passage says “for they of Ham had dwelt there of old”, discloses to us the ancient antiquity of whom we call Father Ham and the place which our great race with all of its wisdom and ingenuity once dwelt thus agreeing with Sir William Jones assertion about this area in general known as ancient Canaan which that ancient historian Herodotus said ​"Hamath was built and inhabited by Hamathites, Canaanites, Ethiopians, &c.". Druscilla Dunjee Houston who wrote the book Wonderful Ethiopians of the Ancient Cushite Empire, had this to say:

​“we come to the fact that the Canaanites called themselves Cushites and that the Hebrew writers gave them the same name; then we reflect upon the strange relationship of the family of Cushite tongues to the so-called Indo-European group of languages” [3]

Francios Lenormant the French Assyriologist and one of the most eminent scholars of his day, had this to say:

"We may perceive in all this the remembrance of a powerful empire founded by Cushites in very early ages. We find traces of a wealthy nation, constructors of great buildings, with an advanced civilization like that of Chaldea. This must be true as everywhere we find traces of Cushites in Arabian literature and their brothers the Canaanites."[4]

Another early prominent scholar on Asiatic history, John Denison Baldwin, in his book Pre-Historic Nations, had this to say about the early Canaanites whom were given the namePhoenicians by the Greeks:

“The doubts and perplexities that have troubled inquiry concerning the Phoenicians are due chiefly to the influence of chronological dogmatism. Investigators have created most of them by assuming that the commonly accept scheme of Ancient History must not be disturbed. To explain the facts presented for consideration, we must disregard this influence, and be entirely free to admit any conclusion that shall seem necessary. The great antiquity of the people called Phoenicians was acknowledged by the ancients. Herodotus, evidently, did not suppose it could be denied. Josephus, while pointing out that “almost all which concerns the Greeks happened not long ago,” mentions as a fact generally understood of the antiquity of the Phoenicians was as great as that of the Chaldeans and Egyptians. He says, writing against Apion: The Greeks acknowledge “that they were the Egyptians, the Chaldeans, and the Phoenicians, who preserved the memorials of the most ancient and most lasting traditions of

There are so many more sources that this author has compiled to prove unequivocally who the original and most ancient Canaanites were and are, I will not belabor the point here but the broad scope will be detailed in one of my upcoming books OLD MAN CUSH, HIS FATHER HAM, AND THE ANCIENT LAND OF CANAAN. A MOSLEM EXEGESIS.

The Moabites are the Moors

This too was laughed off by many in "conscious" circles. Some would even ask me "Why would you want to be descendants of a cursed seed that is the product of an incestuous relationship?" These very people claim that the bible is not our book or a poison book and yet, they build their whole basis, arguments, theories, and prophecies off of this very book ignoring any historical reference which to me proves that they are nothing more than Christians in disguise.

In the bible, the Moabites are given a raw deal, particularly in the book of Jeremiah. If the Moabite stone had not been found in the 1800's, then the biblical accounts would stand as the only proof that someone would believe. The Moabite stone or the Mesha stele, details real military tactics as opposed to the fanciful tales that the biblical writers created. Mesha attributes his victories to Chemosh the Moabite God who is utterly cursed in the Christian bible. Chemosh is merely another way of saying Shamash, the name of the sun in the ancient Chaldean or Babylonian tongue[6][7]. Solomon is called all types of bad names in the Christian bible because he took on wives of Moab, Midian, and the wives of Canaan (1 Kings 11:1-13) which would have been undoubtedly of the same Moorish stock that he descended from. The biblical codex writers usurped Solomon as a part of the covenant of the Israelites because of the important historical and mystical signifance he wields. The story of Abraham coming from Ur of Chaldea and settling in Canaan, is the biblical way of explaining to you by distorting the history, that the Moors or the Moabites were the people who came from this region and settled in this ancient land. The very first conquer of the so called Jews of the bible was Cushan-Rishathaim (Judges 3:8) whose name means Dark one of double wickedness alluding to the skin tone of this Cushite. When you look at the name Ur, you will see that it is a phonetic, linguistic, and etymological match with Ar, the city of the Moabites.

MEANING OF THE NAME “UR” CONTRASTED WITH THE MOABITE CITY "AR"

  • Light - The Hebrew word ‘ur translated as “Ur” is thought by many to mean “flame”. This may be derived from the Hebrew word ‘owr, which means “illumination or (concrete) luminary” light.” (OT:216 Strong's Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary)
  • Waking - The implication of “light” may be the origin of the Hebrew word ‘ur, which means “opening the eyes, to wake.” (OT:5782 Strong's Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary) One lexicon defines this as “a place guarded by waking or a watch) in the widest sense (even of a mere encampment or post).” (OT:5892 Strong's Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary)
  • City – The implication of “waking” may be the origin of the Hebrew word `iyr which is translated as “city”. One lexicon states, “Various other etymologies have been proposed: some taking the word as … the Sanskrit ur, a town, or even the Hebrew ‘iyr.” (“UR” McClintock and Strong Encyclopedia) The Moabite word ‘Ar means “city.” (“AR” McClintock and Strong Encyclopedia) The Hebrew word Uru appears to be related and is defined as “city.” (OT:3389 Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon) A reference work describing the origin of the word “Jerusalem” states, “The oldest known form, Uru-sa-lim, has been considered by many to mean either the ‘City of Peace.’” (“JERUSALEM” International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)
  • The chief city - These references may indicate that Ur was not simply a city of the Chaldeans, but was the CHIEF city of the Chaldees. The Moabites named their CHIEF CITY by the related word ‘Ar. One reference describes ‘Ar as “The chief city (as the name means) of Moab.” (“Ar” Fausset's Bible Dictionary)
  • Another reference work states, “The Chaldeans were a warlike, aggressive people from the mountains of Kurdistan. Apparently they were Haldians (or Khaldians).” (“CHALDEANS” The New Unger's Bible Dictionary) This derivation may indicate that the Chaldeans were descendants of the one who “captured” many of the cities of Mesopotamia. Perhaps the phrase “Ur of the Chaldeans” should best be translated as “the chief city of the one(s) who capture”.
  • The very fact that early Christian writers also called the Moors of north west and south west Africa, that invaded Spain “Chaldeans”[8] proves that they knew whom their warrior adversaries were and coincides with the Abrahamic lineage so touted in religious texts. Another crucial thing to point out is that the Egyptian sun God 'Ra' is a name for the sun which produces the fiery light and is also depicted by an EYE. There is simply no way to ignore the close proximity to the name 'Ar', (Ra reversed) based on some of the definitions given above, "AR" means light, directly cognate with "UR" meaning light, fiery and/or flame.

    These are the Moabites who also called themselves Berbers which coincides with the fact that the Chaldean word for summit was "burbur"[9] denoting the men who come from the mystical mountain Meru where we have posited the Moors get their name from. (Please see ARE ALL SO CALLED BLACK PEOPLE MOORS? in the video section on this website for more detailed research on this topic.)

    An early Islamic racist scholar by the name of Ibn Khaldun, whose anti-Cushitic breakdowns of the Moors became the cornerstone for the European idea that the curse was on Ham and not Canaan, had this to say about the Berbers:

    ​“Ham, having become black because of a curse pronounced against him by his father, fled to the Maghrib to hide in shame.... Berber, son of Kesloudjim [Casluhim], one of his descendants, left numerous posterity in the Maghrib” (Smith, 2003. “What happened to the ancient Libyans? Chasing sources across the Sahara from Herodotus to Ibn Khaldun,” Journal of World History 14:4, p. 482). [emphasis mines]

    Prophet Noble Drew Ali informs us in Act 6 of our Divine Constitution and By-Laws of the Moorish Science Temple of America that"The Moorish Americans[so called black people in America]are descendants of the ancient Moabites whom inhabited the Northwestern and Southwestern Shores of Africa."When we trace some of the oldest tribes in west Africa for the Yoruba, we find conclusive history that states that they either came from Canaan or Arabia to which many early writers and some contemporary ones, feel is merely an extension of the boundaries of ancient Canaan. So when Ibn Khaldun says that Berber ​left numerous posterity in the Maghrib we can cross reference this with many sources even, the origins of the people whom we call Sudanese today:

    “Among the descendants of Sudan, son of Kan'an, are many nations, among them the Ishban, the Zanj, and many peoples that multiplied in the Maghrib, about 70 of them. They differ in their customs (af'al) and have kings. “ Taken from : the French translation of the Akbar al Zamanof the 11th century : L'Abrege des merveilles published 1898 [emphasis mines]

    ​“According to Clapperton, the Benin people are descendants of the Yoruba tribes, the Yoruba tribes being descended from six brothers, all sons of one mother. Their names were Ikelu, Egba, Ijebu, Ifé, Inbni (Benin), and Yoruba. According to the late Sultan Bello (the Foulah chief of Sokoto at the time of Clappertons’s visit to that city), the Yoruba tribes are descended from the children of Canaan, who were of the tribe of Nimrod.” - West African Studies By Mary Henrietta Kingsley, Charles Napoléon Cardi (comte de.), John Harford, published 1899 pg. 456 [emphasis mines]

    So I know you are probably asking "How can all of these different tribes be Moabites?" According to early Christian sources, the name for Morocco is listed as Marab[]. If you go back up and look at the reference from the El Amarna letters, the name Gubla or Gubal is rendered in the transliteration as Gu-al. This means that the - in the middle of the word represents a phoneme. In the Canaanite languages, which are now called Semetic languages, the character ' represents this phoneme. A phoneme is the smallest possible pronunciation in a word. When reading the Hebrew translation of the word Moab, we get Mo'av or Mo'ab. The ' in the middle of the word, based on the weighty evidence that this author has produced from several sources, represents the R sound. How then can we prove this further? One of the keys is found in the Sabas of Arabia whom the Nation of Islam call Shabazz. Sabas is nothing more than Sheba which means seven. According to a very old Smith's Bible Dictionary that I have in my possession, dating back possibly to the 1960's (there is no publishing date in the book), we find this for Sabas:

    • SE’BA. First son of Cush (Gen. x. 7). A nation in Africa included Cush, and having a name and power in Solomon’s time (Ps. lxxii. 10). Located in the island Meroe, which lies at the injunction of the white and blue branches of the Nile. The chief city (Meroe) had an oracle of Jupiter Ammon (or the ram-headed Num), ruins of which are now visible besides pyramids, and other indications of a great population. The great stature and beauty of this people was a theme of the ancients (Herod iii. 20, 114; Is. xliii. 3, xlv. 14; Ez. xxiii. 42). See Josephus, A. J. ii. 10, 2.
    • She’ba (red), (Gen x. 7) 1. Grandson of Cush; 2. Tenth son of Joktan (ver, 28); 3. Grandson of Keturah (xxx. 3). 1. The name of the kingdom of South Arabia, before Himyer took its place, a few years before Christ (24–Strabo). Here were the Sabæans of Diodorus (iii. 38, 46). A queen of Sheba visited Solomon (1 K. x.), attended by a great train, camels loaded with spices, gold, and precious stones. The chief cities were Seba, Uzal (now Sana), Sephar (now Zafar), and Mariaba (now Marib). This district had the chief riches, best country, and greatest numbers of all the four peoples of Arabia. The local history is authentic only as far back as the first century A.D. There ancient religion was pagan. – 2. Settled on the Persian Gulf. On the island of Bahreyn, in the Gulf, are the ruins of an ancient city called Seba. Its merchants are mentioned in Ezekiel xxvii. 23.–3. The sons of Keturah are charged by Job (i.15, vi. 19) with the robber habits that are peculiar to the Bedawin of our day. [emphasis mines]

    So here we place the ancient Sabas in Meroe which is the southern portion of the “two lands” of Egypt and also Marib or Mariaba, which is situated in southern Arabia, and it is said by the same source, that this city is so ancient, existing in a time so remote, that it was in ruins during the reign of Solomon which is estimated to be ?B.C. This is consistent with all other ancient cities that the Moors named. We find the early name Moor, in reference to whom the Greeks called “Ethiopians” mentioned in ancient records of the Chaldeans (Babylonians) under the name “Mirukh.”[10] The Hindus knew our ancient fathers by the name “Meru.”[11] The Greeks knew our ancient ancestors as the Meropes.[13] And the Egyptians, who kept the best records, recorded themselves as TA-MERAU[14] with the “au” denoting plurality as in the name of the people collectively. We can safely assume that the “ukh” in Mirukh, the “u” in Meru and the “opes” in Meropes, is merely there in that ancient vernacular to represent plurality. So when we see the name MARAB for for the original name for Morocco, this is not coincidence or happenstance. It is very much intentional. Even the Egyptian word for pyramid is M-R and also the Egyptian word for love is M-R and being the the Moors are responsible for the Spanish language, we can then assert that the word 'amore' which has the same phonetic value as the Egyptian 'merry', which means love, then we can make a strong argument and case for our position.

    In an 1841 works titled History of the Moors of Spain by an author simply known as “Florian” , we find the most interesting account in that, as noted previously in this work, speaks to this “mythical” and ambiguous origin of the Moors. It reads:

    “The origin of the Moors, or Mauritanians, is like that of most other ancient nations, obscure, and in the information we possess concerning their history confusedly mingled with fables. The fact, however, appears to be established, that Asiatic emigrations were, from the earliest times, made into Africa. In addition to this, the historians of remote ages, speak of a certain Meleck Yafrick, king of Arabia Felix, who conducted a people called Sabæi into Libya [Libya was the name of all of Africa], made himself master of that country, established his followers there, and gave it the name of Africa. It is from these Sabians or Sabæi that the principle Moorish tribes pretend to trace their descent. The derivation of the name Moors is also supposed, in some degree, to confirm the impression that they came originally from Asia [Meru]. But, without enlarging upon these ancient statements, let it suffice to say, that nearly certain ground exists for the belief that the original Moors were Arabians. In confirmation of this impression, we find that, during every period of the existence of their race, the descendants of the primitive inhabitants of Mauritania have, like the Arabs, been divided into distinct tribes, and, like them, have pursued a wild wandering mode of existence.” [added emphasis mines]

    We learn two things from the above and that is, Africa comes from the name of a king of the ancient Moorish tribes and not from Scipio Africanus like many would have you believe among Moorish circles and that these Moors, did join up with their brethren who were already in the Maghrib as the Prophet says"in later years, their brethren from the holy lands joined them..." meaning in the Maghrib or North Africa respectively. ​

    The early Christian writers specifically referred to our ancestors as MOABITES when the wars of Islam and Christianity were fought. I will cite several early contemporary sources to show you that what the Prophet Noble Drew Ali brought to us was a true accounting of our history:

    ​"Charles returned to France, whither he was soon followed by Aigolandus at the head of his army of Saracens, Moors, Moabites, Aethiopians, Parthians, Africans, Persians..." The Foreign quarterly review, Volumes 14-15 By William Van Norden

    "'Barbarians' was the term most frequently used by our author to designate the Muslims of southern Spain and the Maghrib. He used other terms too: Moors, pagans, Hagarenes, Ishmaelites, Chaldeans, Moabites, Amorites and Saracens. Generally, though not quite invariably, when he used biblical names it was because he found them in his sources. 'Chaldeans', for example, was a frequent designation in the Chronicle of Alfonso III. " The Medieval state: essays presented to James Campbell By John Robert Maddicott, David Michael Palliser, James Campbell

    "When the native Muslims of al-Andalus rose up in rebellion against the Almoravides in the middle of the twelfth century, their animosity was of such fervor that it provoked comment in Castilian chronicles. With dramatic license, one such chronicle gave voice to Andalusi discontent: 'The Moabites eat of the fat of the land and our properties, they carry off god and silver from us, oppress our wives and children; therefore, let us fight and kill them, and cast off their domination from us'" The victors and the vanquished: Christians and Muslims of Catalonia and ... By Brian A. Catlos pg. 67

    [Note: Almoravid is the European way of saying the Arabic Al-Morab or Al-Morav which is the same as Moabite. In the last source, you notice that the lighter Hagarenes whom are called Arabs today, are the ones who rose up against the Moors and these are they who abandoned true Islamic principles, and adopted Christian ideals and until this very day, in certain Mosques in North Africa, Moabites (called Mozabites) are not allowed in the Mosques.]

    "The immense army of the Moabites and the Hagarenes went to Toledy and attacked San Servando... The latter joined in many battles in the land of the Moabites and the Hagarenes...King Ali who was the most powerful among the Saracens, and who as king of Marrakesh ruled over the Moabites, and on this side of the sea, over the Hagarenes far and wide, and over many other islands and peoples of the sea...Then through the agency of divine vengeance, the troops of Moabites and Hagarenes came and surrounded the camp and began to fight... our lord and friend, for I know that he will rule over the land of the Saracens, because God in heaven is his deliverer, and God on high is his help. I know that with his assistance my children I will recover the other dominions that the Moabites plundered from me, from my parents and my people... " The world of El Cid: chronicles of the Spanish reconquest By Simon Barton

    If anyone wants further sources, please consult the video that I compiled called THE ANCIENT CANAANITES PT. 2: THE MOABITES on the videos tab above and you will see even more evidence and proof that we are in fact the Moabites, the people of ancient Canaan who were bound free men, most of us, living right here in the United States before this place even had this name.

    This is a very ancient battle between our people and the pale skin nations of Europe, some who have even usurped the name Jew and are the Isrealites in the Europeans bible. The bible makes it clear who their enemies are. The very first oppressor of Isreal (non Moorish people), according to the bible, was a man named Cushan Rishathaim which means "Dark one of double wickedness". With Cushan referencing exactly who this man was as the "dark one." He was a king of Aram Naharaim, that is, Northwest Mesopotamia[]. So when you see the early Christian writers call Moors "Chaldeans" they knew much better than the misinformed scholars and masses know now because this is how the Moors recorded themselves.

    So this brings us to the sons of Europe and the United States. This land, as noted above, was part of the dominions of Morocco as Islam was on this land from at least 700 A.D.[14]. In order for the sons of Europe to be recognized as a nation on this land and to finally be rid of the King Georges III intolerable acts, they went to Morocco and sought permission from the Moabite Sultan Sidi Mohammed Abdalllah III. Now, in order to do this, the sons of Europe expressed to the Sultan and several other Beys and Sheiks in what they called the Barbary (Berber) nations that they were NOT a Christian nation. To do so would violate their biblical tenets which says at Deuteronomy 23:6:

    "Do not seek a treaty of of freindship with them [the Moabites] as long as you live" NITV

    Prophet Noble Drew Ali spoke of this as well when he said"The Europeans went to the Moroccan government, and asked for permission to come over here (to the United states) to develop this land, and they were given a 50 year mandate to do so. Then the Europeans went to an old Sheik and asked him to give them some people to help them to develop this land. The Sheik told them to take those Moors, because they are not going to do anything."

    There biblical mandate however was to destroy us by stripping us of our nationality, religion and culture, and so they sought to trick the Sultan of Morocco, so they thought, come to find out that the Sultan got the last laugh but only if our people wake up and accept who it is they are. Their bible states

    Jeremiah 48:2
    "There shall be no more praise of Moab: in Heshbon they have devised evil against it; come, and let us cut it off from being a nation. Also thou shalt be cut down, O Madmen; the sword shall pursue thee." (KJV)

    And this is exactly what happened. Our people have been cut off from being a nation. The early Europeans laws on this land also reflects this as Berber is in fact another name used by the ancient Moabites or Moors. You are what your forefathers were without doubt or contradiction.

Peace.

You are the Canaanites and Moabites

Moabite warrior or God. 3000-2500 B.C.

“You are what your ancient forefathers were without doubt or contradiction…”

In this year of 2013 of this electrified age, much information has been made available to the masses of the world. Prophet Noble Drew Ali was the only leader that came and gave us, the Moors of America who are labeled with the false misnomers of black people, colored folks, Negroes, and African Americans, the true history of our our great ancestry. The Prophet said that there was still much wisdom for us to learn and that if he told us everything then, that we would go right back to sleep.

For years, certain information was systematically hidden from the public about our Moabite and Canaanite ancestry. Afrocentric scholars were so busy trying to prove that the Egyptians were a so called black people (they never called themselves this), and fighting against the precepts of Christianities version of events, that they got lost in the proverbial sauce. For this reason, any reliable data about the information that the Prophet gave to us concerning our descent from Canaan and Moab was wholly dismissed as fallacious. A professor of the University of Iowa by the name of Richard Brent Turner who wrote the book Islam in the African-American Experience and said on page 93 that “Clearly, some of Noble Drew Ali’s ideas were ‘theosophical lore without historical foundation.” I have found over the years many writers who have said similar in what appears to an attempt to discredit the Prophet and his mission. I say that to say, how can a college professor not do his research and present an extremely biased opinion without actually researching the historical information that was given us by the Prophet?

I grew up in a housing projects in Far Rockaway, Queens, N.Y. so how is that, I have, by the grace of Allah, done the research that backs up every historical claim that the Prophet made, which a college professor has claimed has no historical foundation? How can a man from out of the projects who never went to college let alone finished high school, who merely achieved a G.E.D., be able to present actual historical proof to prove that what the Prophet brought to us was in fact historically accurate,  but the man making the claim against, an actual college professor, infers with a surety that, it is pretty much misinformation if, and I stress IF, this man is not working for the very people that wish you to not have this information so that we can be awakened on this land? Think that over you Moors…

Noble Drew Ali explains two portions of history in the Holy Koran of the Moorish Science Temple of America, chapter 45 and 48. The Prophet informs us that:

“The inhabitants of Africa are the descendants of the ancient Canaanites from the land of Canaan. Old man Cush and his family are the first inhabitants of Africa who came from the land of Canaan. His father Ham and his family were second. Then came the word Ethiopia, which means the demarcation line of the dominion of Amexem, the first true and divine name of Africa. The dividing of the land between the father and the son. The dominion of Cush, North-East and South-East Africa and North-West and South-West was his father’s dominion of Africa. In later years many of their bretheren from Asia and the Holy Lands joined them. The Moabites from the land of Moab who received permission from the Pharaohs of Egypt to settle and inhabit North-West Africa; they were the founders and are the true possessors of the present Moroccan Empire. With their Canaanite, Hittite, and Amorite bretheren who sojourned from the land of Canaan seeking new homes. Their dominion and inhabitation extended from North-East and South-West Africa, across great Atlantis even unto the present North, South, and Central America and also Mexico and the Atlantis Islands; before the great earthquake, which caused the great Atlantic Ocean. The River Nile was dredged and made by the ancient Pharaohs of Egypt, in order to trade with the surrounding kingdoms. Also the Niger river was dredged by the great Pharaoh of Egypt in those ancient days for trade, and it extends eastward from the River Nile, westward across the great Atlantic. It was used for trade and transportation. According to all true and divine records of the human race there is no negro, black, or colored race attached to the human family, because all the inhabitants of Africa were and are of the human race, descendants of the ancient Canaanite nation from the holy land of Canaan. What your ancient forefathers were, you are today without doubt or contradiction. There is no one who is able to change man from the descendant nature of his forefathers; unless his power extends beyond the great universal Creator Allah Himself.”

​At first, even I must admit, I was taken aback by these  claims. I wholly rejected them until I truly became a member of the M.S.T. of A. and sought to prove that this man Noble Drew Ali could not just have stooped to making this up, why would he? I began doing my research to these claims and every last one of them panned out with the exception of the word Amexem being the true and divine name of Africa. I want to go to chapter 45 of our Moorish Holy Koran as well where the Prophet explains our history and the the Moors as the genetic progenitors of the Asiatic nations:

“The key of civilization was and is in the hands of the Asiatic nations. The Moorish, who were ancient Moabites, and the founders of the Holy City of Mecca. The Egyptians who were the Hamathites, and of a direct descendant of Mizraim, the Arabians, the seed of Hagar, Japanese and Chinese. The Hindoos of India, the descendants of the ancient Canaanites, Hittites, and Moabites of the land of Canaan. The Asiatic nations of North, South, and Central America: the Moorish Americans and Mexicans of North America, Brazilians, Argentinians and Chilians in South America. Columbians, Nicaraguans, and the natives of San Salvador in Central America, etc. All of these are Moslems. The Turks are the true descendants of Hagar, who are the chief protectors of the Islamic Creed of Mecca; beginning from Mohammed the First, the founding of the uniting of Islam, by the command of the great universal God–Allah.”

​The early indefatigable scholar of Ancient Asiatic culture, Godfrey Higgins, had this to say about an ancient city of the so called blacks:


“It was the opinion of Sir William Jones, that a great nation of Blacks formerly possessed the dominion of Asia, and held the seat of empire at Sidon. These must have been the people called by Mr. Maurice Cushites or Cuthites, described in Genisis; and the opinion that they were Blacks is corroborated by the translators of the Pentateuch, called the Seventy, constantly rendering the word Cush by Ethiopia. It is very certain that, if the opinion be well founded, we must go for the time when this empire flourished to a period anterior to all our regular histories. It can only be known to have existed from accidental circumstances, which have escaped amidst the ruins of empires and the wrecks of time. Of this nation we have no account; but it must have flourished after the deluge. And, as our regular chronological systems fill up the time between the flood and what is called known undoubted history; if it be allowed to have existed, its existence will of course prove that no dependance can be placed on the parts of that history. It will shew that all the early chronology is false; for the story of this empire is not told. It is certain that its existence can only be known from insulated circumstances, collected from various quarters, and combining to establish the fact. But if I succeed in collecting a sufficient number to carry conviction to an impartial mind, the empire must be allowed to have existed” [1]

​The Asiatic society was founded by a man named Sir WIlliam Jones which was dedicated to the study of the eastern history. Godfrey Higgins thought the Moorish (misnomer blacks) progenitors to humanity could be found in ancient Chaldea while William Jones insisted, based on finds that he had reviewed, ruled the whole of the eastern world including the area encompassing Egypt from ancient Sidon which was anciently the capital city of Canaan as can be seen  in the quote above. In the El Amarna letters, which were a series of diplomatic correspondences between Egypt and the rulers what the French call the Levant (from the direction of the sun rise)​. We find a striking letter from the rulers of Gubal named, Rib-Hadda and/or his successor Ili-Rapih, pleading for assistance from the ruling pharaoh (possibly Akhenaten) against the Hapiru (Hebrews of Joshua). This was between the years of 1350-1335 B.C., the years closely attributed to the raiding of Canaan by Joshua (Isrealites). In EA 139 of the Armana Letters (EA meaning “EL ARMANA”) under the title “A new voice, an old story”, sent by Ili-Rapih, we read:


“To the king, [my] lord my sun: Message of Ili-Rapih, your servant: message of Gu(b)la, your maidservant. I fall at the feet of the lord, the Sun, 7 times and [7 times]. Do not neglect Gu-la, your city and the city of your ancestors from most ancient times. Moreover, behold Gu-la! Just as Hikuptah, so is Gu-la to the king, my lord. Do not neglect the delicts of a servant as for he acted as he pleased in the lands of the King…”[emphasis mines]


It is clear that Ili-Rapih, ruler of Gubal, is showing the highest degree of reverence that one can show a pharaoh in this correspondence. Surely, he would not have called Gubal “your city” and the “city of your ancestors from most ancient times” if this were not truth as such a statement could have been looked at with the highest degree of disrespect. Reason avers, that this Pharaoh was indeed one of the sons of this ancient city of Canaan and the whole context of the above asserts some form of verity and validity to what the Prophet Noble Drew Ali has relayed to us in this opening verse of chapter 47. Diodorus Sicilus claims that the Cushites told him that the Egyptians were a colony drawn out of them by Osiris
[2]. All archaeologists agree that at some point, Egypt became settled by those outside of that area. 
These were the veteran craftsman, the master masons of old. The descendants of Joshua, called “Hebrews” and “Jews” today, have written in the Psalms of their Torah at 83:4-7:


“come they say, let us destroy them as a nation. That the name of Israel be remembered no more. With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you – the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagarites,Gebal, Ammon and Amelek. Philistia, with the people of Tyre. Even Assyria has joined them to lend strength to the descendants of Lot.”


These are the predecessors to the Moorish colonies that would later settle in North Africa after being driven from their homeland, Canaan. It is Israel which displaced them but the Torah reads as if these, our ancestors are the aggressors. The master masons of Gebal have always furnished the building materials for Kings as the bible undoubtedly notes at 1Kings 5:18 when it says “The craftsman of Solomon and Hiram and the men of Gebal…”

The Egyptians are called the descendants of Ham from just about every credible source that you can research. Prophet Noble Drew Ali, along with other notable scholars like Rudolph Windsor who wrote the book From Babylon to Timbuctoo, says that the people have Ham coming from a place eastward (the Asiatic lands) outside of what we know of today as Africa, and then spread in the land. The biblical narrative agrees and says that Ham once occupied the southern border of the province of Canaan, which gives us the same exact boundary as Hamath which in this sense, coupled with the revelation of Prophet Noble Drew Ali, makes it conclusive when we string together texts and geographical descriptions.

“These mentioned by their names were princes in their families: and the house of their fathers increased greatly. And they went to the entrance of Gedor, even unto the east side of the valley, to seek pasture for their flocks. And they found fat pasture and good, and the land was wide, and quiet, and peaceable; for they of Ham had dwelt there of old.” 1 Chronicles 4:38-40 King James Version (KJV)

​Speaking to the new inhabitants which are the olive skin toned Asiatics who live in this places now where the dark olive skin toned people once dwelt. So when we look at the antiquity of which the bible is supposed to be recording, and we focus on the fact that the above passage says “for they of Ham had dwelt there of old”, discloses to us the ancient antiquity of whom we call Father Ham and the place which our great race with all of its wisdom and ingenuity once dwelt thus agreeing with Sir William Jones assertion about this area in general known as ancient Canaan which that ancient historian Herodotus said “Hamath was built and inhabited by Hamathites, Canaanites, Ethiopians, &c.”. Druscilla Dunjee Houston who wrote the book Wonderful Ethiopians of the Ancient Cushite Empire, had this to say:

“we come to the fact that the Canaanites called themselves Cushites and that the Hebrew writers gave them the same name; then we reflect upon the strange relationship of the family of Cushite tongues to the so-called Indo-European group of languages” [3]

Francios Lenormant the French Assyriologist and one of the most eminent scholars of his day, had this to say:

“We may perceive in all this the remembrance of a powerful empire founded by Cushites in very early ages. We find traces of a wealthy nation, constructors of great buildings, with an advanced civilization like that of Chaldea. This must be true as everywhere we find traces of Cushites in Arabian literature and their brothers the Canaanites.”[4]

​Another early prominent scholar on Asiatic history, John Denison Baldwin, in his book Pre-Historic Nations, had this to say about the early Canaanites whom were given the namePhoenicians by the Greeks:

“The doubts and perplexities that have troubled inquiry concerning the Phoenicians are due chiefly to the influence of chronological dogmatism. Investigators have created most of them by assuming that the commonly accept scheme of Ancient History must not be disturbed. To explain the facts presented for consideration, we must disregard this influence, and be entirely free to admit any conclusion that shall seem necessary. The great antiquity of the people called Phoenicians was acknowledged by the ancients. Herodotus, evidently, did not suppose it could be denied. Josephus, while pointing out that “almost all which concerns the Greeks happened not long ago,” mentions as a fact generally understood of the antiquity of the Phoenicians was as great as that of the Chaldeans and Egyptians. He says, writing against Apion: The Greeks acknowledge “that they were the Egyptians, the Chaldeans, and the Phoenicians, who preserved the memorials of the most ancient and most lasting traditions of mankind [5].”

There are so many more sources that this author has compiled to prove unequivocally who the original and most ancient Canaanites were and are, I will not belabor the point here but the broad scope will be detailed in one of my upcoming books OLD MAN CUSH, HIS FATHER HAM, AND THE ANCIENT LAND OF CANAAN. A MOSLEM EXEGESIS.

The Moabites are the Moors

This too was laughed off by many in “conscious” circles. Some would even ask me “Why would you want to be descendants of a cursed seed that is the product of an incestuous relationship?” These very people claim that the bible is not our book or a poison book and yet, they build their whole basis, arguments, theories, and prophecies off of this very book ignoring any historical reference which to me proves that they are nothing more than Christians in disguise.

In the bible, the Moabites are given a raw deal, particularly in the book of Jeremiah. If the Moabite stone had not been found in the 1800’s, then the biblical accounts would stand as the only proof that someone would believe. The Moabite stone or the Mesha stele, details real military tactics as opposed to the fanciful tales that the biblical writers created. Mesha attributes his victories to Chemosh the Moabite God who is utterly cursed in the Christian bible. Chemosh is merely another way of saying Shamash, the name of the sun in the ancient Chaldean or Babylonian tongue[6][7]. Solomon is called all types of bad names in the Christian bible because he took on wives of Moab, Midian, and the wives of Canaan (1 Kings 11:1-13) which would have been undoubtedly of the same Moorish stock that he descended from. The biblical codex writers usurped Solomon as a part of the covenant of the Israelites because of the important historical and mystical signifance he wields. The story of Abraham coming from Ur of Chaldea and settling in Canaan, is the biblical way of explaining to you by distorting the history, that the Moors or the Moabites were the people who came from this region and settled in this ancient land. The very first conquer of the so called Jews of the bible was Cushan-Rishathaim (Judges 3:8) whose name means Dark one of double wickedness alluding to the skin tone of this Cushite. When you look at the name Ur, you will see that it is a phonetic, linguistic, and etymological match with Ar, the city of the Moabites.

MEANING OF THE NAME “UR” CONTRASTED WITH THE MOABITE CITY “AR”

•    Light – The Hebrew word ‘ur translated as “Ur” is thought by many to mean “flame”. This may be derived from the Hebrew word ‘owr, which means “illumination or (concrete) luminary” light.” (OT:216 Strong’s Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary)
•    Waking – The implication of “light” may be the origin of the Hebrew word ‘ur, which means “opening the eyes, to wake.” (OT:5782 Strong’s Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary) One lexicon defines this as “a place guarded by waking or a watch) in the widest sense (even of a mere encampment or post).” (OT:5892 Strong’s Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary)
•    City – The implication of “waking” may be the origin of the Hebrew word `iyr which is translated as “city”. One lexicon states, “Various other etymologies have been proposed: some taking the word as … the Sanskrit ur, a town, or even the Hebrew ‘iyr.” (“UR” McClintock and Strong Encyclopedia) The Moabite word ‘Ar means “city.” (“AR” McClintock and Strong Encyclopedia) The Hebrew word Uru appears to be related and is defined as “city.” (OT:3389 Brown-Driver-Briggs Hebrew and English Lexicon) A reference work describing the origin of the word “Jerusalem” states, “The oldest known form, Uru-sa-lim, has been considered by many to mean either the ‘City of Peace.’” (“JERUSALEM” International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)
•    The chief city – These references may indicate that Ur was not simply a city of the Chaldeans, but was the CHIEF city of the Chaldees. The Moabites named their CHIEF CITY by the related word ‘Ar. One reference describes ‘Ar as “The chief city (as the name means) of Moab.” (“Ar” Fausset’s Bible Dictionary)
•    Another reference work states, “The Chaldeans were a warlike, aggressive people from the mountains of Kurdistan. Apparently they were Haldians (or Khaldians).” (“CHALDEANS” The New Unger’s Bible Dictionary) This derivation may indicate that the Chaldeans were descendants of the one who “captured” many of the cities of Mesopotamia. Perhaps the phrase “Ur of the Chaldeans” should best be translated as “the chief city of the one(s) who capture”.

The very fact that early Christian writers also called the Moors of north west and south west Africa, that invaded Spain “Chaldeans”[8] proves that they knew whom their warrior adversaries were and coincides with the Abrahamic lineage so touted in religious texts. Another crucial thing to point out is that the Egyptian sun God ‘Ra’ is a name for the sun which produces the fiery light and is also depicted by an EYE. There is simply no way to ignore the close proximity to the name ‘Ar’, (Ra reversed) based on some of the definitions given above, “AR” means light, directly cognate with “UR” meaning light, fiery and/or flame.

​These are the Moabites who also called themselves Berbers which coincides with the fact that the Chaldean word for summit was “burbur”[9] denoting the men who come from the mystical mountain Meru where we have posited the Moors get their name from. (Please see ARE ALL SO CALLED BLACK PEOPLE MOORS? in the video section on this website for more detailed research on this topic.) 

An early Islamic racist scholar by the name of Ibn Khaldun, whose anti-Cushitic breakdowns of the Moors became the cornerstone for the European idea that the curse was on Ham and not Canaan, had this to say about the Berbers:

​“Ham, having become black because of a curse pronounced against him by his father, fled to the Maghrib to hide in shame…. Berber, son of Kesloudjim [Casluhim], one of his descendants, left numerous posterity in the Maghrib” (Smith, 2003. “What happened to the ancient Libyans? Chasing sources across the Sahara from Herodotus to Ibn Khaldun,” Journal of World History 14:4, p. 482). [emphasis mines]

​Prophet Noble Drew Ali informs us in Act 6 of our Divine Constitution and By-Laws of the Moorish Science Temple of America that “The Moorish Americans [so called black people in America] are descendants of the ancient Moabites whom inhabited the Northwestern and Southwestern Shores of Africa.” When we trace some of the oldest tribes in west Africa for the Yoruba, we find conclusive history that states that they either came from Canaan or Arabia to which many early writers and some contemporary ones, feel is merely an extension of the boundaries of ancient Canaan. So when Ibn Khaldun says that Berber left numerous posterity in the Maghrib we can cross reference this with many sources even, the origins of the people whom we call Sudanese today:

“Among the descendants of Sudan, son of Kan’an, are many nations, among them the Ishban, the Zanj, and many peoples that multiplied in the Maghrib, about 70 of them. They differ in their customs (af’al) and have kings. “ Taken from : the French translation of the Akbar al Zamanof the 11th century : L’Abrege des merveilles published 1898 [emphasis mines]

​“According to Clapperton, the Benin people are descendants of the Yoruba tribes, the Yoruba tribes being descended from six brothers, all sons of one mother. Their names were Ikelu, Egba, Ijebu, Ifé, Inbni (Benin), and Yoruba. According to the late Sultan Bello (the Foulah chief of Sokoto at the time of Clappertons’s visit to that city), the Yoruba tribes are descended from the children of Canaan, who were of the tribe of Nimrod. – West African Studies By Mary Henrietta Kingsley, Charles Napoléon Cardi (comte de.), John Harford, published 1899 pg. 456 [emphasis mines]

​So I know you are probably asking “How can all of these different tribes be Moabites?” According to early Christian sources, the name for Morocco is listed as Marab[]. If you go back up and look at the reference from the El Amarna letters, the name Gubla or Gubal is rendered in the transliteration as Gu-al. This means that the – in the middle of the word represents a phoneme. In the Canaanite languages, which are now called Semetic languages, the character ‘ represents this phoneme. A phoneme is the smallest possible pronunciation in a word. When reading the Hebrew translation of the word Moab, we get Mo’av or Mo’ab. The ‘ in the middle of the word, based on the weighty evidence that this author has produced from several sources, represents the R sound. How then can we prove this further? One of the keys is found in the Sabas of Arabia whom the Nation of Islam call Shabazz. Sabas is nothing more than Sheba which means seven. According to a very old Smith’s Bible Dictionary that I have in my possession, dating back possibly to the 1960’s (there is no publishing date in the book), we find this for Sabas:

  • SE’BA. First son of Cush (Gen. x. 7). A nation in Africa included Cush, and having a name and power in Solomon’s time (Ps. lxxii. 10). Located in the island Meroe, which lies at the injunction of the white and blue branches of the Nile. The chief city (Meroe) had an oracle of Jupiter Ammon (or the ram-headed Num), ruins of which are now visible besides pyramids, and other indications of a great population. The great stature and beauty of this people was a theme of the ancients (Herod iii. 20, 114; Is. xliii. 3, xlv. 14; Ez. xxiii. 42). See Josephus, A. J. ii. 10, 2.
  • ​She’ba (red), (Gen x. 7) 1. Grandson of Cush; 2. Tenth son of Joktan (ver, 28); 3. Grandson of Keturah (xxx. 3). 1. The name of the kingdom of South Arabia, before Himyer took its place, a few years before Christ (24–Strabo). Here were the Sabæans of Diodorus (iii. 38, 46). A queen of Sheba visited Solomon (1 K. x.), attended by a great train, camels loaded with spices, gold, and precious stones. The chief cities were Seba, Uzal (now Sana), Sephar (now Zafar), and Mariaba (now Marib). This district had the chief riches, best country, and greatest numbers of all the four peoples of Arabia. The local history is authentic only as far back as the first century A.D. There ancient religion was pagan. – 2. Settled on the Persian Gulf. On the island of Bahreyn, in the Gulf, are the ruins of an ancient city called Seba. Its merchants are mentioned in Ezekiel xxvii. 23.–3. The sons of Keturah are charged by Job (i.15, vi. 19) with the robber habits that are peculiar to the Bedawin of our day. [emphasis mines]

So here we place the ancient Sabas in Meroe which is the southern portion of the “two lands” of Egypt and also Marib or Mariaba, which is situated in southern Arabia, and it is said by the same source, that this city is so ancient, existing in a time so remote, that it was in ruins during the reign of Solomon which is estimated to be ?B.C. This is consistent with all other ancient cities that the Moors named. We find the early name Moor, in reference to whom the Greeks called “Ethiopians” mentioned in ancient records of the Chaldeans (Babylonians) under the name “Mirukh.”[10] The Hindus knew our ancient fathers by the name “Meru.”[11] The Greeks knew our ancient ancestors as the Meropes.[13] And the Egyptians, who kept the best records, recorded themselves as TA-MERAU[14] with the “au” denoting plurality as in the name of the people collectively. We can safely assume that the “ukh” in Mirukh, the “u” in Meru and the “opes” in Meropes, is merely there in that ancient vernacular to represent plurality. So when we see the name MARAB for for the original name for Morocco, this is not coincidence or happenstance. It is very much intentional. Even the Egyptian word for pyramid is M-R and also the Egyptian word for love is M-R and being the the Moors are responsible for the Spanish language, we can then assert that the word ‘amore’ which has the same phonetic value as the Egyptian ‘merry’, which means love, then we can make a strong argument and case for our position.

​In an 1841 works titled History of the Moors of Spain by an author simply known as “Florian” , we find the most interesting account in that, as noted previously in this work, speaks to this “mythical” and ambiguous origin of the Moors. It reads:

“The origin of the Moors, or Mauritanians, is like that of most other ancient nations, obscure, and in the information we possess concerning their history confusedly mingled with fables. The fact, however, appears to be established, that Asiatic emigrations were, from the earliest times, made into Africa. In addition to this, the historians of remote ages, speak of a certain Meleck Yafrick, king of Arabia Felix, who conducted a people called Sabæi into Libya [Libya was the name of all of Africa], made himself master of that country, established his followers there, and gave it the name of Africa. It is from these Sabians or Sabæi that the principle Moorish tribes pretend to trace their descent. The derivation of the name Moors is also supposed, in some degree, to confirm the impression that they came originally from Asia [Meru]. But, without enlarging upon these ancient statements, let it suffice to say, that nearly certain ground exists for the belief that the original Moors were Arabians. In confirmation of this impression, we find that, during every period of the existence of their race, the descendants of the primitive inhabitants of Mauritania have, like the Arabs, been divided into distinct tribes, and, like them, have pursued a wild wandering mode of existence.”  [added emphasis mines]

​We learn two things from the above and that is, Africa comes from the name of a king of the ancient Moorish tribes and not from Scipio Africanus like many would have you believe among Moorish circles and that these Moors, did join up with their brethren who were already in the Maghrib as the Prophet says “in later years, their brethren from the holy lands joined them…” meaning in the Maghrib or North Africa respectively. 

The early Christian writers specifically referred to our ancestors  as MOABITES when the wars of Islam and Christianity were fought. I will cite several early contemporary sources to show  you that what the Prophet Noble Drew Ali brought to us was a true accounting of our history:

​”Charles returned to France, whither he was soon followed by Aigolandus at the head of his army of Saracens, Moors, Moabites, Aethiopians, Parthians, Africans, Persians…” The Foreign quarterly review, Volumes 14-15 By William Van Norden

 

“‘Barbarians’ was the term most frequently used by our author to designate the Muslims of southern Spain and the Maghrib. He used other terms too: Moors, pagans, Hagarenes, Ishmaelites, Chaldeans, Moabites, Amorites and Saracens. Generally, though not quite invariably, when he used biblical names it was because he found them in his sources. ‘Chaldeans’, for example, was a frequent designation in the Chronicle of Alfonso III. “ The Medieval state: essays presented to James Campbell By John Robert Maddicott, David Michael Palliser, James Campbell

“When the native Muslims of al-Andalus rose up in rebellion against the Almoravides in the middle of the twelfth century, their animosity was of such fervor that it provoked comment in Castilian chronicles. With dramatic license, one such chronicle gave voice to Andalusi discontent: ‘The Moabites eat of the fat of the land and our properties, they carry off god and silver from us, oppress our wives and children; therefore, let us fight and kill them, and cast off their domination from us'” The victors and the vanquished: Christians and Muslims of Catalonia and … By Brian A. Catlos pg. 67

[Note: Almoravid is the European way of saying the Arabic Al-Morab or Al-Morav which is the same as Moabite. In the last source, you notice that the lighter Hagarenes whom are called Arabs today, are the ones who rose up against the Moors and these are they who abandoned true Islamic principles, and adopted Christian ideals and until this very day, in certain Mosques in North Africa, Moabites (called Mozabites) are not allowed in the Mosques.]

“The immense army of the Moabites and the Hagarenes went to Toledy and attacked San Servando… The latter joined in many battles in the land of the Moabites and the Hagarenes…King Ali who was the most powerful among the Saracens, and who as king of Marrakesh ruled over the Moabites, and on this side of the sea, over the Hagarenes far and wide, and over many other islands and peoples of the sea…Then through the agency of divine vengeance, the troops of Moabites and Hagarenes came and surrounded the camp and began to fight… our lord and friend, for I know that he will rule over the land of the Saracens, because God in heaven is his deliverer, and God on high is his help. I know that with his assistance my children I will recover the other dominions that the Moabites plundered from me, from my parents and my people… ” The world of El Cid: chronicles of the Spanish reconquest By Simon Barton

If anyone wants further sources, please consult the video that I compiled called THE ANCIENT CANAANITES PT. 2: THE MOABITES on the videos tab above and you will see even more evidence and proof that we are in fact the Moabites, the people of ancient Canaan who were bound free men, most of us, living right here in the United States before this place even had this name.

This is a very ancient battle between our people and the pale skin nations of Europe, some who have even usurped the name Jew and are the Isrealites in the Europeans bible. The bible makes it clear who their enemies are. The very first oppressor of Isreal (non Moorish people), according to the bible, was a man named Cushan Rishathaim which means “Dark one of double wickedness”. With Cushan referencing exactly who this man was as the “dark one.” He was a king of Aram Naharaim, that is, Northwest Mesopotamia[]. So when you see the early Christian writers call Moors “Chaldeans” they knew much better than the misinformed scholars and masses know now because this is how the Moors recorded themselves.

So this brings us to the sons of Europe and the United States. This land, as noted above, was part of the dominions of Morocco as Islam was on this land from at least 700 A.D.[14]. In order for the sons of Europe to be recognized as a nation on this land and to finally be rid of the King Georges III intolerable acts, they went to Morocco and sought permission from the Moabite Sultan Sidi Mohammed Abdalllah III. Now, in order to do this, the sons of Europe expressed to the Sultan and several other Beys and Sheiks in what they called the Barbary (Berber) nations that they were NOT a Christian nation. To do so would violate their biblical tenets which says at Deuteronomy 23:6:

“Do not seek a treaty of of freindship with them [the Moabites] as long as you live” NITV

 Prophet Noble Drew Ali spoke of this as well when he said “The Europeans went to the Moroccan government, and asked for permission to come over here (to the United states) to develop this land, and they were given a 50 year mandate to do so. Then the Europeans went to an old Sheik and asked him to give them some people to help them to develop this land. The Sheik told them to take those Moors, because they are not going to do anything.”

There biblical mandate however was to destroy us by stripping us of our nationality, religion and culture, and so they sought to trick the Sultan of Morocco, so they thought, come to find out that the Sultan got the last laugh but only if our people wake up and accept who it is they are. Their bible states

Jeremiah 48:2

“There shall be no more praise of Moab: in Heshbon they have devised evil against it; come, and let us cut it off from being a nation. Also thou shalt be cut down, O Madmen; the sword shall pursue thee.” (KJV)

And this is exactly what happened. Our people have been cut off from being a nation. The early Europeans laws on this land also reflects this as Berber is in fact another name used by the ancient Moabites or Moors. You are what your forefathers were without doubt or contradiction.
