Ya'um Jahiliyah (the Days of Ignorance) and the Islamic State, ISIS and the Uncle Abdullah regimes

Is ISIS guilty of reverse evolution, of behavior reminiscent of pre-Islamic Arabia known as the Days of Ignorance? ISIS claims Islam but its actions seem of the primitive, decadent, savage variety that was the state of affairs prior to the advent of Prophet Muhammad. In fact, there is no known definition of Arab except ambusher, for they were essentially caravan robbers, although the aboriginal inhabitants of Arabia were a civilized people who ruled from Sabah to Jerusalem to the Persian Gulf. These were the Afro-Arabs such as the Queen of Sheba's people. Cheikh Anta Diop tells us the fundamental ideas of Islam were in Arabia a thousand years before Muhammad. So we must distinguish the Semitic Arabs from the Kushitic or Aboriginal Arabs. The savagery raging at this hour is certainly beyond the pale of civilization although they claim it is a return to the purity of the Prophet Muhammad's teachings. The problem is that the behavior of the Arab regimes is little better than that of ISIS, and certainly the Euro-American Crusaders are every bit as savage and barbarian as ISIS and the Arab regimes, along with the Zionists in Israel. 

The Arab Spring seems a flicker of light in a room now full of darkness. Mao told us the reactionaries
will never put down their butcher knives, will never turn into Buddha heads, so perhaps it was romanticism of the highest order to think there could be a non-violent revolution in the Arab world that would benefit the suffering masses.

See the Wonderful Ethiopians of the Ancient Cushite Empire, especially, Chapter VIII:

  1. Ancient Arabia Part of the Cushite Empire.
  2. Divisions of Arabia, Deserta, Felix and Petrae.
  3. Arabia Settled by Two Distinct Races
  4. The Cushite-Arabians were Civilized Agriculturists.
  5. The Semitic-Arabians were a Wild, Nomadic Race.
  6. The Cushite-Arabian was the Oldest and Purest Blood.
  7. The Rise of Mohammed and the Koreysh.

The pre-Islamic period: Jahiliyah (The period of ignorance)

Islam is the basic monotheistic faith proclaimed by prophets throughout history. The Qur’an does not present a new revelation but rather provide a complete, accurate, and therefore final record of the message.

Islam is the religion of all Prophets - Abraham, Noah, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad (peace be upon them all)
As the basis for a historical community and tradition of faith, however, Islam begins in Mecca with the life and work of Muhammad in the early seventh century.
The pre-Islamic period was the darkest age in human history. It was a time of ignorance and anarchy in the religious and social life in the world.

Pre - Islamic Arabia
The political, social and cultural life developed by the peoples of the ancient world was shattered by the barbarians. The social and religious order organized by Judaism, Christianity and Zoroastrianismhad disintegrated.
The people had forgotten the ideal of their religion. Morality had fallen at low ebb. Corruption, intolerance, persecution and wrangling of creeds and sects prevailed everywhere.
Greatest anarchy prevailed in the social life of the Arabs. There was no ideal morality or discipline in the society.
Corruption, vices superstition, unrestrained freedom and unrestricted enjoyment ruled supreme in the Arab society. Plurality of wives and husbands was the order of the day.

Evil was spread in the whole society.
Adultery was common among the pre-Islamic Arabs. Step sons could marry their step-mothers and even the brothers sometimes married their own sisters. Men and women could have full liberty with their opposites.
Human beings were sacrificed to propitiate gods. Fathers sometimes killed their children also for fear of poverty.
The position of the women was very degrading in the Arab society. They were treated as chattels and with contempt. The birth of a female child was considered as a great curse and she was often buried alive by the heartless father.
Women could not have any share of the property of the husbands or the fathers in a word, no status in the society. Slavery, in its worst form, prevailed in the Arab society; the master can even put his slave to death.
Slaves were deprived of even basic necessities of life.
Economically, pre-Islamic Arabian society was very much in the primitive stage the soil being barren; there was little of agriculture in the country.
Prior to the rise of Islam, worst anarchy and confusions prevailed in the religious life of the Arabs. There were some Jews and Christians in Arabia, but they had become corrupt and not hold any higher religious ideal to the Arabs.
Exception the Jew and Christians, the rest of the Arabs followed the most primitive form of religious belief. They were idol worshipers, adoring many gods and goddesses.
The above mentioned evils not only existed among Arabs but in most of the world civilizations at that time.

There were no basic human rights and the rich ruled the poor and imposed whatever laws they wanted. The world society was primarily divided into ruling class and the ruled.
