No Ma'atic Islam?

Many in the current Afrocentrist community, which unfortunately has often degenerated into ideological dogmatism, are quite perturbed by my discussion of ‘Ma’atic Islam’. One recent critic fumed:    

“I printed this 55pg report and the last page says MAATIC ISLAM. STOP STOP STOP with the bullshit. Kemetic spirituality goes back 15,000 bce and Kemet is the daughter of Ethiopia, so Ethiopia goes back further than that. How the hell u goin to mix some 670AD BULLSHIT with Afrikan Antiquity? Just stop with the maddness. Everyday another nail is put in the coffin called religion so now in a last effort of the matrix... religion wants to play this game that we are all the same... that there is a connection... no that is called plagerism. ALL RELIGIONS stole from Afrikan spirituality and now there is an awakening a new consciousness. Every 10yrs the people that leave religion doubles. That heaven and hell bullshit or a holyman coming out the clouds or on a goddamn spaceship that hype game is over, no one is buying tickets anymore. Wesley Muhammad lambasted Kemet now the nigga wants to lick boots with this ebook. When new wisdom comes to the ignorant it comes in three steps. 1. it is ridiculed 2. it is condemned 3. accepted as divine revelation. Afrikan people come home, come home to divine revelation. Give the European and the Arab back his plate of shit and eat from the sublime plate of Afrikan culture. HOTEP!”


Another scorned critic wrote recently as well:

“Wesley Muhammad wrongly teaches what he calls “Ma’at-Islam”. .. This makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. While his statement makes no historical sense, it is good religious propaganda for his agenda. Ma’at predates Islam by thousands of years. While it has some Afrikan origins, Islam is an Arabian religion which copied from everything around it.”

I will be addressing these and other criticisms in a lecture in Chicago, June 23

And in my book which will debut then. 


  1. peace god,

    let me first just thank you for the work you've put into this blog, this is raw knowledge. i had actually came to the conclusion that kemet and islam have a direct connection early last year and i actually have my own blog that i began showing the connections between the two ( in my research i came across your blog and i've been checking back here ever since. this is great work you have done here brother.

    the criticism you recieve is nothing but lack of understanding. the problem is that people don't understand that islam did not start in 670AD with the advent of muhammad (pbuh). islam is eternal, it is the natural way of life in accordance to the order, laws and sciences of the universe. the qur'an clearly bears witness to this. it is the understanding that you submit to no one other than Allah who is "closer than (man's) jugular vien i.e. Allah lies within. man know thyself, self-knowledge. to know thyself is to know god and the universe. all the true prophets and head religious figures taught this way of life and for man to know himself, from kemet to the hindus regions, to the christ and finally muhammad (pbuh) himself.

    keep up the fantastic work dr. wesley, i look forward to seeing more of your post.

    p.s. it'd be nice to have come around philly or wilmington delaware sometime!

  2. Dr. Wesley Muhammad, keep up the excellent job you are doing!

    The Honorable Louis Farrakhan doing an excellent job!

    The Afrocentrics need to start practicing the moral principles of Maat!

    (Majestic Qur’an)

    Allah is He Who made for
    you the night for (peace) & (tranquility) and
    the day for seeing. Surely Allah
    is Full of {Love}, {Goodness}, {Kindness} &
    {Generous-gifts} to humanity, but many of them
    are very ungrateful. Such is Allah,
    your Loving-Nurturer, Beautifier, Cherisher and
    Nourisher unto perfection, the (Perfect) Creator and
    the (Perfect) Evolutioner of all things. There is no
    Object of Love for adoration besides Him. Then why
    are you turned away? (40:61-62)

    Allah is He Who made the
    (physical world) a peaceful place for you and the
    atmosphere a protective shield, and He formed you,
    then sculptured you into (beautiful) colours and
    (beautiful) shapes, and He provided you with (beautiful),
    (goodly), (delightful), (delicious), (sweet), (clean) things.
    That is Allah, your Loving-Nurturer,
    Beautifier, Cherisher and Nourisher unto perfection. So
    Holy is Allah, the Loving-Nurturer, the
    Beautifier, the Cherisher and the Nourisher unto perfection
    of all the Universes and all the Systems of (Wisdom),
    (Intelligence) & (Knowledge)! (40:64)

  3. (Majestic Qur'an)

    Say to the devoted (grateful) men that they
    lower their gaze from forbidden things
    and guard their chastity & (modesty). That is
    more beautifying and delightful for them. Surely
    ALLAH is All-(Aware) of what they do. (24:30)

    (Majestic Qur'an)

    And go not nigh to fornication: surely it is an
    (obscenity). And corruption is the way. (17:32)

    Women of impurity are for men of impurity, and
    (men) of impurity are for women of impurity and
    (women) of (virtue) with (beautiful moral qualities)
    (are) for men of (virtue) with (beautiful moral qualities),
    (and) men of (virtue) with (beautiful moral qualities)
    (are) for women of (virtue) with (beautiful moral qualities):
    These are not affected by what people say: For them is
    Divine (help) & (protection), and a nourishment most
    (generous). (24:26)

  4. Those people who criticize Dr. Wesley must not be informed on an academic level, if they were they wouldn't use pronity nor would they be so ignorant to say Dr. Wes is trying to mix Ma'at with Islam, he is not saying, Dr. Wes is saying Islam and Ma'at is TWO PEAS OF THE SAME POD! He is saying that the people of both faiths come from one common stock. I don't understand people, and if Ma'at only goes back 15,000, there were people here longer than that and couldn't have been living a Ma'atic life. Islam on the other hand by defintion and concept goes back to the first man and woman.

    Keep up the good work Dr. Wesley and thank you.
