“And when We show favour to man, he turns away and withdraws himself; but when evil touches him, he is full of lengthy supplications. Say: See you, if it is from Allah, then you disbelieve in it, who is in greater error than he who is in opposition far away? —Holy Qur’an, Surah 41, verses 51-52

Within one day of my arrival back to the United States, in 2006, from a long and exhaustive journey to Mongolia, I flew into Phoenix, Arizona, just in time to join the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, members of his family and delegation headed to Big Mountain located in Navajoland, Arizona. We were to meet with the chairperson of the Navajo people and council, Chairman Joe Shirley and his wife and other representatives had prepared to receive us. Unexpected information surfaced beginning on the first day of our arrival to attend a dinner reception in the evening. As we were introduced to our guests, one Navajo lady elegantly dressed in her native apparel, who was elected as princess of the Navajo Nation for that year, came forward towards me and I immediately recognized that her garment and her crown was strikingly similar to the welldressed ladies of the Mongolian society throughout periods of their history. I shared this with her and she replied that she was Mongolian to my complete surprise.

Later on during the days of our visit, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan addressed the Indian Council members, and while introducing his family members and delegation, she stated that I had just returned from Mongolia, and they appeared to be pleasantly surprised. The Navajo people have compiled the records of their migration across the Bering Straits, across the Land Bridge from Mongolia and Siberia. Later I met with a couple who were continuing their contacts and research work traveling back and forth between Navajoland, an outpost in Siberia and Mongolia.

During our recent journey and participation in the leadership conference and festival of peace organized by one of the sons of Reverend and Mrs. Sun Myung Moon held in Mongolia during the last week of August of 2011, this same truth about the ancestral roots to Mongolia was acknowledged by one of the chiefs named Joseph. He represented some of the tribes living in Canada and the United States who acknowledged openly their origin from ancient Mongolia through the Hun Civilization and people. Throughout the years of my research, up to the time of my initial visit to Mongolia, I never directly associated Mongolia to the native habitant of the Americas. Recently more research has been revealed concerning Mongolian links to the Hopi elders and the Pueblo Indians of Arizona and New Mexico extending all the way South into Mexico and to Central America.

It is asserted that “The Hopis were members of the Shoshonean branch of the Uto-Aztecan language family of Mongoloids who migrated to America by way of the Bering Strait, crossing and arriving in the Southwest about 700 A.D. Other tribal groups include the Ute, Kiowa and Tanoan Pueblo in the United States and the Yaqui, Tarahumara and Aztec in Mexico.” Thus writes author Frank Waters in his “Book of the Hopi,” “There is further evidence that there were Mongolian immigrations into Mexico and Central America touching upon the Toltecs, Naule, Mayan and Olmec family groups with a central location in the states of Guatemala and Chiapas.” Now, if Indian blood and ancestry has commingled and mixed with our original Black people of the Americas, then our DNA and genetic material most certainly is coded in us.

Upon one of my visits to Mongolia, I returned with several books on the history of Mongolia from ancient times to the present and one can clearly see in the photos and images of the people the facial features of many of our people in the Americas. This Asiatic appearance in the original Black man, most clearly defined as Oriental or Asian in appearance, is seen in the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and to many of our families in America being the same. I saw many striking persons with features of high cheek bones and slightly slanted eyes that have surfaced in our bloodline. We were lost and now found by our Saviour and Redeemer, Master W. F. Muhammad, who identified us in our Supreme Wisdom writings as the “Lost Nation of Asia” and Tribe of Shabazz.

When tracing the etymological and linguistic root of the name Shabazz, we have (Shah) meaning king, which is derived from an Indo-European base. The name (bazz) also Persian and Eurasian origins derived from the region of Central Asia combined with Urdu and Sanskrit of linguistic roots all are derived from an earlier Asiatic origin. We, as Black people, finally awakening from a long sleep, are described in our Supreme Wisdom teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad as having our origin in Asia and not Africa. The name Africa was used by the European or White race to try to keep us divided and thinking that we are different, one from the other. This has produced racial profiling and discrimination against Black people in particular who were captured as slaves during the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and are now calling ourselves “African-Americans,” as named by our captors leaving us totally blind, deaf and dumb to the knowledge of self and others.

In our Supreme Wisdom Lessons in Student Enrollment Question and Answer 3, it is stated that: “Our original nation’s population in the Wilderness of North America is 17,000,000 with the two million Indians making it 19,000,000, while all over the planet earth our numbers are 4,400,000,000.” Here is the challenge–How are we and the Native Indian people of America also original? If we trace our bloodline back to Asia, it also connects to our ancient roots in Africa, which was also known in ancient times as Asia as well as our entire planet. We discovered that the original Y chromosome found by scientists studying the Gernome Map that this sequencing of the genetic material found only in the male can be traced back to one of our African tribes or families more than 50,000 years ago. And from that family who migrated from what is now called Africa, to Asia and onto Eurasia, into the Mongolian and Siberian regions of our planet, into Russia, and the Caucasus Mountains and throughout the known world.

“We will soon show them Our signs in farthest regions and among their own people, until it is quite clear to them that it is the Truth. Is it not enough that thy Lord is a Witness over all things? Now surely they are in doubt as to the meeting with their Lord. Lo! He surely encompasses all things.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 41, verses 53-54
