    Interesting article: 500 US town have Muslim names

    California named after Caliph Haroon Rashid. 500 US town have Muslim names

    California was named after Calif(Ha)ronia: Caliph Haroon Rashid. Al Hambra was also from Muslim Spain….More than 500 American town have Muslim origins
    California is not an anomoly, hundreds of cities and town across America have Muslim names

    A sum of 565 names, 484 in America and 81 in Canada, of villages, towns, cities, mountains, lakes, rivers and etcetera, are etymologically Arabic, designated by locals long before the arrival of Columbus. Many of these names are in fact the same as names of Islamic places; Mecca in Indiana, Medina in Idaho, Medina in New York, Medina and Hazen in North Dakota, Medina in Ohio, Medina in Tennessee, Medina in Texas, Medina and Arva in Ontario, Mahomet in Illinois and Mona in Utah, are just a few noticeable names at the outset. A closer analysis of the names of native tribes will immediately reveal their Arabic etymological ancestry; Anasazi, Apache, Arawak, Arikana, Chavin, Cherokee, Cree, Hohokam, Hupa, Hopi, Makkah, Mohician, Mohawk, Nazca, Zulu, and Zuni are only a few.

    Islam is America is everywhere. One just has to look for it. From Caliph Haronia (California), to Allah-Bumya (Alabama), to Tallah-Hasse (Tallahassee), to Medina Ohio, to Moorestown New Jersey, to Islamorada Florida, to Al-hambra California Muslims ahve left an impact on the country

    ever heard fo the spanish inquisition.

    no one disappeared, its just that everyone has become ignorant.

    there are over 500 cities and towns in usa named after muslims and a huge part of europe is well.

    textbooks, history and education today is all manipulated and with the media has made todays people blind, all of the history of muslims conquering europe, the ottoman empire, the muslim warriors have been erased from your history textbooks.

    you call einstein a genius for making the atom bomb, but would that have been possible without tipu sultans innovations in rocket technology. tipu was a far bigger genius then einstein.

    time, clock, numbers, world map, algebra were all brought by muslims but today they are only known as head choppers.

    The name "Tallahassee" is a Muskogean Indian word often translated as "old fields". This likely stems from the Creek (later called Seminole) Indians who migrated from Georgia and Alabama to this region in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Upon arrival, they found large areas of cleared land previously occupied by the Apalachee tribe. Earlier, the Mississippian Indians built mounds near Lake Jackson around A.D. 1200, which survive today in the Lake Jackson Archaeological State Park.[6]

    You people are so ignorant! His real name was Sheikh Zubair. He was Moorish and came to England to make money (I think Anne Hatahway sponsored him!)

    Hehe. Do some arabs seriously say that? I thought it was a short-hand used by students in arab universities/colleges to refer to Shakespear. That's how it was according to a Maldivian poet/linguist named Salahuddin. He had compiled a collection of raivaru (a very old style of Dhivehi poetry), and he named it "Sheikh Zubair". In the foreword of that book he mentioned that "Sheikh Zubair" was what the students in Azhar University called Shakespear "either by mistake or on purpose".

    In case anyone is interested, here's the actual origin of the name California:
    The name California is most commonly believed to have derived from a fictional paradise peopled by black Amazons and ruled by a Queen Califia. The myth of Califia is recorded in a 1510 work The Exploits of Esplandian, written as a sequel to Amadís de Gaula by Spanish adventure writer Garci Rodríguez de Montalvo.[6] The kingdom of Queen Califia or Calafia, according to Montalvo, was said to be a remote land inhabited by griffins and other strange beasts and rich in gold.
    Basically Europeans explorers had always expected an island on the west coast of America. Some dude in the 16th century wrote a fictional story about it. In the story the Island was ruled by Queen Califia.

    There are other fringe theories like these two:

    1. Some suggest that the word California may signify that a place is "hot as an oven" (L. calida > hot, fornax > oven).

    2. Another possible source may be kali forno, an indigenous phrase meaning "high mountains". There is no agreement among scholars.
    All of these actually have some merit because they relate to the actual indigenous peoples/history of exploration etc.

    Jokes apart,

    Native American Muslims
    The Message, July 1996
    My name is Mahir Abdal-Razzaaq El and I am a Cherokee Blackfoot American Indian who is Muslim. I am known as Eagle Sun Walker. I serve as a Pipe Carrier Warrior for the Northeastern Band of Cherokee Indians in New York City.
    There are other Muslims in our group. For the most part, not many people are aware of the Native American contact with Islam that began over one thousand years ago by some of the early Muslim travelers who visited us. Some of these Muslim travelers ended up living among our people.

    For most Muslims and non-Muslims of today, this type of information is unknown and has never been mentioned in any of the history books. There are many documents, treaties, legislation and resolutions that were passed between 1600s and 1800s that show that Muslims were in fact here and were very active in the comunities in which they lived. Treaties such as Peace and Friendship that was signed on the Delaware River in the year 1787 bear the signatures of Abdel-Khak and Muhammad Ibn Abdullah. This treaty detailes our continued right to exist as a community in the areas of commerce, maritime shipping, current form of government at that time which was in accordance with Islam. According to a federal court case from the Continental Congress, we help put the breath of life in to the newly framed constitution. All of the documents are presently in the National Archives as well as the Library of Congress.

    If you have access to records in the state of South Carolina, read the Moors Sundry Act of 1790. In a future article, Inshallah, I will go in to more details about the various tribes, their languages; in which some are influenced by Arabic, Persian, Hebrew words. Almost all of the tribes vocabulary include the word Allah. The traditional dress code for Indian women includes the kimah and long dresses. For men, standard fare is turbans and long tops that come down to the knees. If you were to look at any of the old books on Cherokee clothing up until the time of 1832, you will see the men wearing turbans and the women wearing long head coverings. The last Cherokee chief who had a Muslim name was Ramadhan Ibn Wati of the Cherokees in 1866.

    Cities across the United States and Canada bear names that are of Indian and Islamic derivation. Have you ever wondered what the name Tallahassee means? It means that He Allah will deliver you sometime in the future.
