Fara; The Original Religion of Africa
by Ndagi Abdullahi
In the remotest past of human history there used to exist a culture and a civilization generally known as Afa, Afara or Fara. This almighty civilization of Fara existed such a very long time ago that almost everybody has forgotten about it today. But echoes and reminiscences of this Fara culture or civilization continue to emerge here and there in various documents and otherwise such that there is no way modern mankind can conveniently forget or do away with the phenomenon of this Fara hoary culture.
We should also note the fact that Fara was a general or generic name for anything that was associated with or that has to do with that antique culture of Fara. This was such that the culture, the people, the civilization, the religion, the spiritualism, the materialism, the knowledge and whatever that ever has anything to do with this lost culture and civilization of Fara was known also as Fara. That was how Black Negro Africa came to be known as Fara.
The point here is that Black Negro Africa was the original homeland of this venerable Fara culture and civilization. As a matter of point it was here in Africa that the Fara culture originated and later on became a civilization that was to eventually overwhelm the entire world.
Fara was also known and pronounced as Bara. And it is in this form of Bara that we also see the story and relics of this timeworn Fara culture and civilization as having survived in various forms into modern times. So, we see this Fara aged culture and civilization variously in the form of Fara or Bara in various bygone documentaries testifying to the existence of this great and worldwide culture in very prehistoric times.
We need to mark here is that in the beginning the Fara or Bara culture originated here in Africa and for a very long time remained a Black African Negro culture and civilization before it eventually spread out to all other parts of the world in very ancient times. And after ruling and dominating the world for a very long time, some said millennia on end, the Fara or Bara culture and civilization eventually fall back into history such that today most people are not even aware that there was once upon a time an almighty civilization or culture called Fara or Bara in the past of humanity.
But whatever the case might have been the truth still remains that the world was at one time dominated by a one world culture and civilization that was generally known as Fara or Bara.
Fara First Civilizations
If we may take a closer and deeper look at this culture and civilization of Fara or Bara we will readily see that almost all the first or initial cultures and civilizations of humanity were generally referred to as Fara or Bara or with any other of their dialectal variants or synonyms. It is in this context that we see the Semitic scriptures, for instance, repeatedly referred to the first civilizations and cultures with terms and names that are evidently dialectal variants of derivatives of the antiquated name Fara.
The Semitic scriptures, for instance, insisted that one of the first patriarchs in the history of humanity was variously known as Abra, Abram or Abraham. But then when we take a very close look at the etymology of this name Abraham we will readily see that it is actually derived from Fara or Bara.
We see easily that Abraham is derived from Abram or Abra which is itself evidently derived from Abara which is in turn and of course derived from Bara which is the same as Fara.
So, what the Semitic scriptures are telling us when they named one of their first patriarchs as Abra, Abram, Abraham or Ibrahim is that this patriarch was a high patriarch of the Fara or Bara culture and civilization of very ancient times. Indeed this same patriarch we know today as Abraham or Ibrahim was actually known to the ancient Black African Negroes as Afra which, of course, seems to be a more ancient form of the name that was originally derived from Bara.
Abra, Abram, Abraham, Ibrahim or Afra are definitely not the personal or proper name of the prehistoric character we know as Prophet Ibrahim or Abraham the Patriarch today. His personal or proper name must have been lost o humanity today due to the very long period that separates the era he lived with our modern times.
But whatever his proper or personal name might have been the actuality is that he has come to be remembered and identified today with the name of the culture and civilization in which he lived, namely, the culture and civilization of Bara or Fara.
And this culture or civilization of Fara or Bara was itself known and referred to with a variety of names and ethnonyms some of which have survived into our modern times. That very olden culture and civilization of Fara or Bara was also known and referred to variously as Babel, Babila or Babylon; it was also known as Barabara or Barbaria or as the Barbarians.
And as Fara this very remote prehistoric and first culture or civilization was also known Pharaoh.
In oldie Irish folklores we see the name of this very relic culture and civilization has survived in the name of the Firbolgs. The Irish claims that the Firbolgs were the first set of humans to establish culture and civilization in the world. Firbolg is, of course, derived from Firi-bolg or Fara-bolg.
Really we can continue and we will see that in all parts of the world all the primal and traditional cultures of the people referred to the first culture and civilizations with names and terms that are merely dialectal variations of the original national and cultural name, namely, Bara or Fara.
What we should note here, however, is that Fara also became popularly and famously applied in a sense as the religion of the primeval people. In other words the name Fara or Bara became a one time a term tropically applied to the concept of religion such that the term Fara or Bara itself simply came to mean ‘religion’ or, better still, ‘ancient religion’.
Freemasonry the Religion of Fara
In former times the term ‘Fara’ or ‘Bara’ was generally used to refer to any superannuated or prehistoric religion especially those that originated from Africa. That was how we ended up with the now cryptic terms like ‘Fara Masara’ which of course will translate as ‘The Religion of Masara’ since Fara means religion. But then Masara also referred to ancient Black Negro Africa such that the term ‘Fara Masara’ will directly translate as ‘The Religion of Africa’. Interestingly enough it is this term ‘Fara Masara’ that is Latinized today as ‘Freemasonry’. This, of course, means that the real and actual meaning of the term ‘Freemasonry’ is actually ‘The Religion of Africa’.
Yes, Freemasonry, is nothing but the Religion of Africa because it originated as the revivalism of the earliest religion of Black Negro Africa. High degree Freemasonic writers, famously including people like Albert Churchward, have pointed out long ago that Freemasonry originated from Black Negro Africa and that Freemasonry is actually nothing but an earliest religion of Black Negro Africa that is being revived by the secret fraternities of Europe and North America today because of the unparalleled spiritualism that accrues from the true but secretive practice of this first religion of Africa known as Fara Masara or Freemasonry.
This place, or this work, is not the right place for us to discuss the African origins and the highly spiritual potency of the prehistoric African religion known to the world today as Freemasonry. Please read my other books on Freemasonry for details on how Freemasonry originated from Africa. Some of my books on this interesting topic includes: ‘Fara Masara and the Table of the Sun’; ‘Angelo Soliman the Nupe Man who Founded Freemasonry’, etc, etc.
For now we are more focused on our discussions to the effect that Freemasonry is simply one of the derivatives of the primordial Fara or Bara culture and civilization of very prehistoric times.
It is not just Freemasonry but to the ancients everything that was of great antiquity was simply referred to by them as Fara or Bara. So when the ancients referred to a Biblical patriarch as Abra, Abram or Abraham they were simply telling you that he was among the first, if not the first, known patriarch to them and also that he lived and flourished in a very remote era that is so far removed away from modern historic or even prehistoric times.
The same thing applies when the ancients referred to a civilization or culture as Fara or Bara, they are simply telling you that it is a very primeval civilization that is almost unknown to modern mankind because of its remoteness in the very distant past. That is the case with the very olden civilization the ancients referred to as Babil, Babel or Babylon. This Babylon was a very aged and remote civilization that existed in the remotest past that modern mankind knows very little about it. It is of course the same that was also known to the ancients as Barbarian, Libya, and so on and on.
Fara was Africa
But then we should also note the reality that Africa was also known to the ancients as Fara or Bara for the simple verity that Black Negro Africa is the oldest culture and oldest civilization in the world. In point of fact our very modern name ‘Africa’ is itself originally derived from Fara. It is so easy to see how the modern name ‘Africa’ is progressively derived from Afaraka, Faraka, Fara-ka and eventually Fara, of course.
It was Africa that was originally known as Fara because Africa was the beginning of humanity and the first seat of culture and civilization in the entire world. And this, of course, means that Semitic patriarchs like Abra, Abram, Abraham or Prophet Ibrahim were of course Africans – Black African Negroes otherwise they will not have been referred to as Abra or Abraham which simply means ‘The African’.
The Pharaoh, a Latinization of Fara, were also Black African Negro emperors who, interestingly enough, lived and flourished here in Black Negro Africa and not in the Egyptian Delta as modern Western scholarship is wrongly telling us.
But then, and whatever the case might have been, Africa was the original and initial homeland of the first culture and civilization of humanity known as Fara or Bara. This first culture and civilization of humanity based here in Black Negro Africa in very prehistoric times grew and expanded into a world civilization that was in possession of advanced science and technology far superior to the modern science and technology of our modern Western civilization.
This first and ancient Fara or Bara civilization headquartered here in Black Negro Africa has survived in a variety names to our modern times as Babel, Babylon, Libya, Barbary, Barbarian, etc, etc. This was such a great civilization that the Book of Revelation has repeatedly referred to it as ‘Babylon the Great’ with repeated references to the case that there had hardly ever been a greater culture and civilization in the annals of humanity.
Well, and in any case, Africa was the home to this great culture and civilization, called Babylon or Babel or Fara or Afra, which flourished here in Black Negro Africa for a very long time before it eventually spread to all other parts of the world.
That this Bara greatest of all age-old world civilization was a Black African Negro civilization is evident from the evidence that even our modern word ‘Black’ in reference to people from Africa is actually derived from Bara. It is so easy to see that the word ‘Black’ is progressively derived the more antediluvian Blacka, Balaka, Baraka, Bara-ka, or eventually ‘Bara’. This, of course, is a great corroboration of the matter that Babylon the Great or the Bara or Fara world culture and civilization was originally a Black African Negro culture and civilization.
And then we should also mark the genuineness that when this Fara or Bara antiquated world culture and civilization spread over the world everything associated or derived from it became known as Bara or Fara. We have mentioned before that that was how the ancients came to refer to any senescent religion or culture as Bara. In fact that was how even the Indians got the name ‘Brahma’ or ‘Brahmin’ for their sages and saints. The experience is that the original Brahmin and Brahmans were actually Black African Negro prophets.
Philosophy is African Religion
Philosophy and Fara
We also see that the ancient Greeks also got their word ‘Philosophy’ from the name of timeworn Black African Negro world religion of Bara. In very primordial times there was a Black African Negro nation known as Saba which was the same that the Old Testament referred to as Sheba and the Hellenistic word referred to as Ethiops or Ethiopia and the Arabians referred to as Abasha or, as the Europeans came to Latinize it, Abyssinia.
This very dated Black African Negro nation of Saba had a national religion which came to be referred to by the ancients as the ‘Fara Saba’ or ‘The Religion of Saba’.
But then the aboriginal Black African Negro term ‘Fara Saba’ was what the ancient Greeks wrongly pronounced as Farasaba, Farasafa, Phalasapha, Philasaphi, or eventually as Philosophy.
In other words Philosophy was actually the name of an ancient Black African Negro religion which was the national religion of the Black African Negro nation of Saba. Modern Western scholarship is wrongly telling us today that it was the ancient Greeks who invented Philosophy, but the truth of the matter is that Philosophy was actually Fara Saba, or the Religion of Saba, which originated in and was practiced here in Black Negro Africa for several centuries on end before the ancient Greeks eventually adopted it and despiritualized it into a materialistic phenomenon as we now see it today.
In any case Bara was one of the earliest, if not the earliest, of the World Orders that dominated the entire world at the very beginning of the human race. Bara was an eon of Black world domination with Black Negro people inhabiting and dominating all parts of the world. Bara lasted for several millennia and is actually made up of a large number of Black African Negro civilizations many of which ended up spreading over the entire world as world civilizations. It was only at the tail end of the Bara world order that the first White peoples and White races appeared on the face of this planet earth.
Africa was the origin of Fara civilization and Africa has now become the last bastion of the Fara world civilization again. It was here in Arica that the Fara civilization originated. That is why the kings of Black Negro Africa were known in prehistoric times as the Fara which we still see in the Semitic scriptures pronounced or written as Pharaoh or Fir’aun. That is why the prophets of Black Negro Africa were known as the Bara, Baram or Barama which we still see in the Semitic scriptures as the Abram, Abraham, or Balam the Seer. It is also because Africa was the origin of the Bara world civilization that is why we still see the African continent itself still referred to as Africa. This modern term Africa is actually derived progressively from Afrika, Afaraka, Abaraka, Abara-ka, A-Bara-ka, and finally Bara.
In truth even the ancient Greeks referred to the prophets of Black Negro Africa as Bara or Barata. It is the Latinization of the olden term for Black African Negro prophets, Barata, that we see in the form of the ancient Greek name ‘Plato’. This very term ‘Plato, actually a Latinization of the prehistoric term for a Black African Negro prophet, Baraka, Barama, or Barata. It is so easy to see the certainty that the modern term ‘Plato’ is easily derivable in a progressive manner from Plato, Palato, Palata, Plata, Frata, Brata, and finally Barata.
Yes, Plato, who were being told today as being a famous Greek philosopher was in reality not a Greek Philosopher but was actually just one of the various Black African Negro prophets generally referred to as the Barata in very bygone times. Nobody with the personal name of Plato ever lived as a famous philosopher in ancient Greece as we are being wrongly told by Western scholarship today. Instead there were many Black African Negro prophets who truly lived and flourished right here in the heart of Black Negro Africa and they were generally referred to as the Barata or Farata simply because they were the prophets of the religion of Fara-Safa which is the same that the ancient Greeks wrongly pronounced as Philosophy today.
Philosophy was actually a forgotten religion of Black Negro Africa. The Greeks converted to this lost religion of Black Negro Africa in latter times and they corrupted and adulterated it into the nonsensical materialistic collection of useless theories that we see it as today. In very erstwhile times there was a Black African Negro religion known as Fara-Safa and it was this former Black African Negro term, Fara-Safa, that the Greeks came to pronounce as Philosophy. Fara-safa became Falasafa, Phalasafi, Philasaphi, Philosophi, and finally Philosophy.
This Philosophy or Fara-Safa previous religion of Black Negro Africa actually spread over the entire known civilized world of those days and as widely practiced by all the peoples of the ancient world who all looked towards Black Negro Africa as the fountainhead of world culture, civilization and religion. We can still see that the very name of this vanished Black African Negro religion of Fara-Safa has survived as the geographical name of a number of places outside the African continent including in national names like France, Paris, Persia, and so on and on.
The modern national name France is actually derived from Faransa, or Fara-sa which is in itself a shortened form of Fara-Saba. So also is the term Paris which is actually derived also from Faris or Farasa or Fara-Sa or Fara-Saba. This simply means that the ancient Black African Negro religion was serious practiced and actually dominated the region we know today as France and Paris in very ancient times. But this old-time Fara-Safa religion of Black Negro Africa was not only practiced in prehistoric France alone but was practices all over ancient Europe and so many other parts of the Asian continent including Asia Minor where we see the name pronounced today as Persia.
The same thing applies to Persia. This national term Persia is actually derived from Fersia, Farasa or Fara-Sa which is simply a shortened form of Fara-Safa which is the name of the ancient Black African Negro religion of Africa.
