Why Were Mosques in Mexico in 1492?

This page has nothing to do with religion.


The focus is on the hidden history of the Americas.




These Spanish conquerors described the stunning towers and cities that were “More beautiful than the cities of Spain”.  This is how the writings of the Spanish Conquistadors described the mosques that were in Mexico in 1511.


This picture is from page 244 of the book, “Five letters of relation to the Emperor Charles V.”

Dr. Youssef Mroueh of the As-Sunnah Foundation of America made a particularly fanciful claim in 1996 to celebrate the “millennium” of Muslim America.

Here is what Mroueh claimed Christopher Columbus said during his first voyage to the Americas, in October of 1492:

Columbus admitted in his papers that on Monday, October 21, 1492 CE while his ship was sailing near Gibara on the north-east coast of Cuba, he saw a mosque on top of a beautiful mountain.
Now that would be a surprising turn of events were it true. So where did Mroueh get his information? His source, he says, is Nigel Davies’s Voyagers to the New World (1979), a book that actually sought to debunk most trans-Atlantic contact theories.


 The claims for a Muslim presence in America can be traced back to a passage in Al-Masudi, the tenth-century Islamic historian whose Meadows of Gold (c. 947 CE) offers this account of a voyage across the ocean:


On the limits where these two seas, the Mediterranean and the Ocean join, pillars of copper and stone, have been erected by King Hirakl the giant [i.e. Heracles]. Upon these pillars are inscriptions and figures, which show with their hands that one cannot go further, and that it is impracticable to navigate beyond the Mediterranean into that sea (the ocean), for no vessel sails on it: there is no cultivation nor a human being, and the sea has no limits neither in its depths nor extent, for its end is unknown. This is the sea of darkness, also called the green sea or the surrounding sea. Some say that these pillars are not on this strait, but in some islands of the ocean and their coast.

Some people consider this sea as the origin of all others. There are some wonderful stories related respecting it, for which we refer the reader to our book the Akhbár ez-zemán; there he will find an account of those crews who have risked their lives in navigating this sea, and who of them have escaped, and who have been shipwrecked, also what they have encountered and seen. Such an adventurer was a Moor of Spain, of the name of Khoshkhash. He was a young man of Cordoba: having assembled some young men they went on board a vessel which they had ready on the ocean, and nobody knew for a long time what had become of them. At length they came back loaded with rich booty. Their history is well known among the people of el-Andalos (the Moors in Spain).  (Chapter 12, trans. Aloys Sprenger, pp. 282-283)

This is the oldest text advocates use to claim a Muslim voyage to America, and a truncated translation, comprising only the last few sentences, appeared in 1968 in a Journal of the Muslim Students’ Association article by Mohammed Hamidullah about the “Muslim Discovery of America before Columbus” and thereafter became canonical alternative history.



"The Great Pyramid of Cheops at Heliopolis was built in a STEPPED or TIERED design. This comes from Herodotus. However, the pyramid in North Africa being called the “Great Pyramid of Cheops” is NOT built on a stepped or tiered design. It is a smooth sided pyramid. Also, the footnotes are not Herodotus’ words. Do not cite the pyramid of Djoser, either. Cheops is not Djoser...

The Great Pyramid of Cheops is in Mexico! The pyramid of the Sun at Teotihucan."

This pyramid was made like stairs, which some call steps and others, tiers.

– Herodotus, The Histories (ed. A.D. Godley) 2.125.1

    2. Before there was place, there was a Creator. Allah exists without being in a place. Muslims do not worship objects, images, or other spatial entities.
