WHAT DOES ‘BILALIAN’ MEAN?
O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).
“Prophet Muhammed while in the company of his companions referred to Bilal in this way.
He said "all of us are Bilal". Bilal for us has a cultural application, cultural definition, cultural application, i.e., we have taken on the name Bilal because we see in his personal life a similarity, a comparison, a kind of prophetic comparison to our lives as subject people and people liberated by the call of Al Islam. So we see ourselves kind of paralleling the personal life of Bilal and for that reason we, and I give the words of the Imam who spoke last week, we chose this name of our own free will and we became very comfortable with it, those who chose it of their own free will. We became very comfortable with it, for the first time we felt that we are wearing a name that came naturally.
We don't believe the name colored man came naturally. We don't feel that the name black man came naturally. We don't feel that the name negro and nigger, that those names came naturally. We don't even feel that the name soul brother came naturally, because it wasn't a decision it was a response. Some one called us those things and we responded. But we thought about the name Bilal and we made a rational decision. So for the first time we feel that we have a name that is our own because we chose it with rational thoughts. Praise be to Allah.”
