Chapter 1 — THE ANCIENT ARABIANS

**Ethiopia, Kush, and Shem**

According to the work of John G. Jackson, the original inhabitants of Arabia were a much darker people than the Arabs of today.

Drusilla Dunjee Houston refers to the ancient Arabians as “Cushites” and “Semitic”, whom she describes as “dark” and “brown” in complexion respectively.

Both are in agreement with physical anthropology.

According to Dr. Ben (Dr. Yosef Ben-Jochannan), in the Book of Akhsum, Ethiopian tradition conflicts with the Biblical genealogies. The Book of Akhsum says, Ityopis (Ethiopis) is son of Kush son of Shem. Meaning, Ethiopians and Kushites are Shemites (Semitic).

“More than one historian is inclined to believe that the Kushites and Shemites were less distantly related than Hebrew writers pretend.”  (Perrot  1884)

“As to the Cushites, they descend from Cush, the son of Shem”.  (Larcher  1829, p. 301)

“The Islamic extra-Scriptural sources generally identify . . . Cush [as] son of Shem” (Cobb  2012).

“And may not these groups, though distinct, have been more closely connected than the Jews were willing to admit”?  (Perrot  1884, p. 16)

(Note: Ethiopian scholar Dr. Ayele Bekerie is in agreement with Dr. Ben’s assertion that the name Ethiopia is derived from Ethiopis (Ityopis), the name of a Kushite king, who is the father of Aksum. Ethiopia was not named by the Greeks.)

Kush (Ethiopia) included Arabia, the horn of Africa, Sumer, and India.

Kushite Arabians are genetically and linguistically related to Kushites in Africa.

**Alkebu-lan**

Above,  Dr. Ben mentioned his discovery that, “Alkebu-lan” is the most ancient name for the continent, which he also says was renamed “Africa” by Greeks and Romans.  (Jochannan 1973, 421)   To date, little if any evidence has been produced to support “Alkebu-lan” being an ancient name for the continent.

A common observation is that “Alkebu-lan” appears to be an Arabic word. The Kushite language Geez (also known as Ethiopic, now extinct) shows its closet affinity to Arabic.

Geez is classed as an ancient branch of Arabic. The grammatical structures of the two languages are very similar.

It is estimated that one-third of the roots and primitive words from Geez also exist in Arabic.

If approaching “Kebulan” as a Shemitic (Semitic) word, its root would be q-b-l, which in Arabic is pronounced qaf-baa-lam, and written as ق ب ل  (read from right to left). However “qaf” is often transliterated in to the Roman alphabet as the letter “k”.  For example, “Qur’an” and “Koran” are both transliterations of the same Arabic word (قرآن), which begins with “qaf”.

In some instances Arabic words with the q-b-l root, “Qaboolun” for example,  mean acceptance or reception.

Similarly, some words in Ge’ez with the q-b-l root connote, to meet, accept, receive, etc.

Leslau-q.b.l.

However the Arabic word “Qabeelun”, which is also derived from the q-b-l root, means, “a body of men from several ancestors”.

In Qur’an chapter 49, verse 13, “qabaila” (root q-b-l) means, “tribes” .

49.13-Qabila-Tribe-Emp

Of the two Ethiopian dialects that have replaced Geez, Tigré is more similar to Geez than Amharic. (Penny Cyclopaedia, 1837, p. 52)  In Tigré of Gindaˁ, “kabilat” means, “tribe, people group”.

Elias-Kabila-Tigre-Arabic-Geez

In Hindi, “kabila” (ka bee la) also means, tribe. Recall that a branch of Kushites reached India. (Harris 2013, 154)

Kapoor-K.B.L-Tribe-Kebulan-Qabeelun

In traditional Senegambian society of West Africa, the Mandinka term “kabila” means, lineage or extended family.

Fels-Kabila-Senegambia-Family

Perhaps, “Kebulan” refers to the tribes who descended from Kush and Shem, who, according to Diodorus  (Hansberry 1964), brought the basic foundations of civilization to the Nile Valley.

**Kushite Origins of Ancient Egyptian Civilization**

Dr. William Leo Hansberry and Dr. E. Harper Johnson state, a Kushite prince and his wife brought the first elements of civilized life to Ancient Egypt, and they and their son were later deified by the Egyptians under the names: Osiris, Isis, and Horus (Asar, Aset, and Heru).

According to Drusilla Dunjee Houston, Ethiopians (Kushites) were the builders of early Egyptian monuments, which were constructed with Ethiopian stone.

Citing temple inscriptions and the works of Herodotus and Homer, scholars have concluded that Ancient Egypt began as a colony of Ethiopia.

(Note: Previously Dr. William Leo Hansberry and Dr. E. Harper Johnson stated, “… Egypt was buried beneath the sea…”. In support of this statement, some scholars and scientists are of the opinion that erosion found on the Sphinx is the result of severe flooding that occurred at the end of the last Ice Age. This would require that the Sphinx was constructed before the last Ice Age, which is at least 7,500 – 12,500 years earlier than the commonly accepted construction date of approximately 2,500 B.C.)

The following photograph shows erosion on the Sphinx. The caption says,

“The facial features of the Great Sphinx, located at Gizeh, have traditionally been thought by Egyptologists to be those of Khafre, the Pharaoh of Egypt when the statue was carved. Recently, however, some scholars offer a different history. They argue that Great Sphinx reveals a pattern of water erosion rather than wind and sand erosion, and the because water erodes substances more slowly, the statue is older than had been thought. They believe it be over 9,000 years old.”
