This is actually what we had learned in our school in subjects called as sīrah or our history either before or after the rise of our noble prophet Muhammad s.a.w in the Arabian Peninsula. Some notes actually came from early 1900s Muslim scholars of South East Asia such as Dr. Abdul Malik Karim Amrullah and most of them are not shallow like Orientalists during imperialism period of 19th century.
We had been looking very closely at those Orientalists. The world is looking at how Western world is making herself a pathetic laughing stock with those idiot 'scholars' who were not guided by the holy spirit but by their blind desire just to bash others and showing their dominion over others. We should also take the account of those 'scholars' life and look at how their life goes on until they see their death. Whether they live a 'happy' or 'blessed' life and also their physical and mental health level. Western world indeed possess positive traits, so does it possess negative traits. Everyone is the same with both positive or negative traits.
Origin of Nations
In modern world today, we have branches of science which is called in universities as anthropology. It means, a branch of science to investigate the origin of a certain nation and its relation with others. Many scholars had made their researches and they founded that Arabic is related to other languages of the Middle East and Mediterranean area such as Phonecian, Hebrew, Akkadian, and Assyrian. All of these people who speak these languages were actually descendents of the same ancestor. Other criteria which proves that they are people who are related to each other is from their appearances, black hair, bushy beard, skin color, and through biological proves such as DNA or haplogroup, and anthropology through their body shape. All of these researches shown that Arabs are among Semite groups.
Gustav Le Bonn said that for few centuries long, Arabs had already exist in this earth. Those who studied and doing archeological researches had founded that the shape and appearance of human body who lived during the period where it was almost the time of iron age is almost the same to each other.
Those who study linguistics assumed that, wide plateau which is located between two rivers namely the Tigris and Euphrates, Caucasus, and Northern part of Arabian Peninsula had already been inhabited by the same nation and they were using the same language which were the language of the Semites. From this assumption, Arabs were considered as a part of Semite nation and related to the Assyrians, Arameans and Hebrews.
Those researchers were also in conflict with regard to their opinion on the place where the Semites came from. In the Old Testament, it was mentioned that the first human lived between the two great rivers; the Tigris and Euphrates before they traveled around and resettle again around the world. Human in ancient time was just the same like human today. They have feet to walk around and not just dwelling in a particular place. From the Semite nation, there came the Assyrians and Akkadians of Babylon. Then the Arameans in Syria, Phonecians along the coasts of Syrian sea, Hebrews in the land of Canaan, 'some' Arabian tribes of the Arabian Peninsula, and Ethiopians in Africa.
There are three views of famous researchers and these people are of course from the West :
- Rebter and Salet have this view that Semites were originated from Ethiopia in Africa.
- Sprenger, Serider, Robertson, and Wenkler believe that Semites were originated from Arabian Peninsula. Later, they were spread all-over the world.
- Egnazie Guidi said that Semites came from northern of Euphrates river.
Although these people have different opinions regarding the origin of Semite nation but all of them are in common term that from the Semites, came all of races and nations in the world. As to say, my forefathers are not monkeys. They are all human-being and the first father is Adam a.s who was a sage. But that monkey evolution theory perhaps plausible to Darwin who propose the theory and those who are faithful with it since there were also mentions about sub-human in Old Testament. Old Testament did mentioned about Nephilim, a kind of monster who look like human but were not human. They plundered and polluted human-being genetics too. So, I do not reject the theory as much as I do not accept it for myself.
Language of human was just one but because of the world climate changed and there were development in human life, language becomes different according to regions. Written languages too turn out to be different. Grammar and language structure of human too.
