Tribe of Shabazz

According to the Nation of Islam the Tribe of Shabazz was an ancient Black nation that migrated into central Africa, led by a scientist named Shabazz. The concept is found primarily in the writings of Wallace Fard Muhammad and Elijah Muhammad. According to the Autobiography of Malcolm X, all the races except the black race were by-products of the Tribe of Shabazz.


According to the Nation of Islam, the Tribe of Shabazz was the only survivor of thirteen tribes that lived on earth 66 trillion years ago. After a rogue scientist blew up the planet, splitting off the moon, the other tribes perished. The Tribe of Shabazz relocated to the rich Nile valley of Egypt and the present seat of the Holy City, Mecca, Arabia.[1]

It was a technologically advanced society, but one faction was led by Shabazz himself into previously unoccupied areas of central Africa because he wanted them to be hardened. There they evolved Negroid features. Malcolm X in a 1962 speech stated that,


A scientist named Yakub was a member of the Meccan branch of the tribe and, according to Fard, was the creator of the white race. The Tribe of Shabazz is said to have reached its peak in the year 4084 BC.


Template:See The name may be related to the Arabic words شعب sha‘b 'a people', and عز ‘azz 'to be mighty or glorious'.

There is a similar Persian name , Shahbāz (شهباز) meaning 'royal falcon' or 'eagle' (a contraction of shāh, "king" and bāz "hawk, falcon") popular among Bosnian, Turkish, Indian, and Pakistani Muslims. The name's etymology, however, is Indo-European. Shāh is from Old Persian xšāyaθiya "king", itself derived from Proto-Indo-Iranian *ksayati "he controls", ultimately from Proto-Indo-European tkeh1- "to rule, to control land" (c.f. Greek κταομαι ktaómai "to procure, to annex", Sanskrit क्षत्र kṣatra "dominion"). Bāz in turn derives from Middle Persian vāǰ.

Malcolm X used the surname Shabazz from 1949 because he believed himself to be a descendant of the tribe.[1] Members of his family have also used the name, which has also been adopted by other persons.
