It is reported that the Prophet Muhammad – Sallalahu Alayhi Wa Âlihi Wa Salam – said: “I saw myself (In a dream) following a herd of black sheep. Then a group of white sheep came (and mixed with the black sheep) until they (the white sheep) became so many that the black sheep could no longer be seen in the herd of sheep.” Abu Bakr, the companion of the Prophet (pbuh) and the interpreter of dreams, said, “O Messenger of Allah. As for the black sheep, they are the Arabs. They will accept Islam and become many. The white sheep are the non-Arab Persians, etc. They will accept Islam and become so many that the Arabs will not be noticed amongst them.” The Prophet Muhammad (sawas) then said that an angel had interpreted the dream the same way.
The Pure-Blooded Quraishi
To get a better idea of what the Arabs of the past looked like, let’s take a close and careful look at the Prophet Muhammad(Sallalahu Alayhi Wa Alihi Wa Salam)’s descendant Muhammad Al-Nafs Al-Zakiyyah the son of Abdallah the son of Al-Hasan the son of Al-Hasan the son of Ali the son of Abu Talib. It is a known fact that Muhammad Al-Nafs Al-Zakiyyah was a pure-blooded Arab from his father’s side and his mother’s side. This is why he was nick-named The Pure-Blooded Quraishi. This is why he said the following about himself: “You know that no one has as close relations to or relations to anyone better than he whom I am very closely related to (meaning the Prophet Muhammad (Sallalahu Alayhi Wa Alihi Wa Salam))”. What color would most people today expect a person who says such a thing to be? ِ
Al-Hafidh Al-Dhahabi says: Muhammad Al-Nafs Al-Zakiyyah was “black-skinned and huge”. Al-Tabari says: “Muhammad Al-Nafs Al-Zakiyyah was tall, jet-black-skinned and huge. He was nick-named The Bituminous because of his blackness and Abu Ja’afar Al-Mansour used to call him Charcoal”. Bear in mind that the person called The Bituminous and Charcoal was a pure-blooded Arab closely related to the Prophet Muhammad (Sallalahu Alayhi Wa Alihi Wa Salam). Remember that this person called The Bituminous and Charcoal said: “You know that no one has as close relations to or relations to anyone better than he whom I am very closely related to (meaning the Prophet Muhammad ((Sallalahu Alayhi Wa Alihi Wa Salam)))”. Bituminous means like bitumen. Take a look at the color of bitumen:
Original Arabs Are Black
This should give readers a very clear picture of how dark-skinned Muhammad Al-Nafs Al-Zakiyyah – the pure-blooded Arab direct descendant of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) was. Muhammad Al-Nafs Al-Zakiyyah had a son named Al-Hasan. Ibn Hazim says: “Al-Hasan (the son of Muhammad Al-Nafs Al-Zakiyyah) was so black-skinned that he was nick-named The Father of the Tar. We all know how dark tar is. That is the description of Muhammad Al-Nafs Al-Zakiyyah the son of Abdellah the son of Al-Hasan the son of Al-Hasan the son of Ali the son of Abu Talib. That is the blackness of Muhammad Al-Nafs Al-Zakiyyah, who said about himself: “I am descended from the Prophet (SAWS) from my mother’s side AND my father’s side. I am the purest of Bani Hashim (the branch of Quraish that the Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) is from) in genealogy and the noblest of them both paternally AND maternally. NO NON-ARAB BLOOD RUNS THROUGH MY VEINS! Doesn’t this say it all? I believe that this is the proof of all proofs that the original Arabs were black people.
