The so-called Arabic numbers are really numbers from the Kabyles!

It is quite strange to experience that the whole world uses the so-called Arabic numerals, except the Arabs themselves who have chosen Hindu numerals. What is their origin, and why don’t the Arabs use them?

Several analysts have asked themselves this question about the non-use of « Arab » numerals by those who are supposed to have invented them. These became known to Europeans via the famous mathematician of Pisa, Leonardo Fibonacci in the 12th century. He found himself in a Kabyle city where he attended school. It was indeed here, at Bugia, that the young Fibonacci, whose father had a trading post in the city, had to learn mathematics at the feet of his then master, Sidi Omar.

Fibonacci, intelligent and quick-witted, immediately noticed a big difference between the digital symbols used in Bugia, and those used in Europe. In addition, there was another unknown symbol used by these Kabyle traders on the other side of the Mediterranean: the zero.

The discovery of this number would revolutionize all mathematical science, and would allow Fibonacci to become famous all over the world, especially because of the discovery he made by developing what are now known as the « Fibonacci Sequence ».

One of the peculiarities of these numbers, unlike those developed by Europeans and Hindus, lies in the meaning and accuracy of the angles contained within these symbols. The symbol of the number zero, being round, contains no angle. While that of the number « One » contains an angle, that of the « two » contains two angles and so on, up to the symbol of the number « nine ». The symbols were not chosen at random, but drawn by ingenious minds. This meaning is totally absent from other numbering systems.

However, to return to our interrogation, it is curious that the Arabs, who are supposed to have invented this system, did not keep it. They opted for another system, imposed by the Hindus, followed by the Persians before being adopted by the whole of the Middle East. The Hebrews and Greeks, for their part, chose to use alphabetic letters as their prefered numbering system. Moreover, there are apparently no old existing manuscripts containing these figures, which the European give paternity to the Arabs.

Abassid documents clearly include Hindu figures. The only traces of these figures called « Arab » are actually in North Africa, among the Berbers (Amazighs). And their discovery in Vgayeth(Bugia) is not fortuitous. It is more reasonable to say that these figures are actually of Kabyle origin than anything else.

After being adopted by Leonardo Fibonacci, these numerals had trouble settling in Europe, before they imposed themselves over time. But it would be the Church which would have imposed them officially, after the clergy’s noted their facility of use and their definitive installation in the very important commercial exchanges with North Africa.
By adopting them officially, they simply baptised them « Arabic numerals ». That’s how Kabyle numbers became arabized.

The Church, like many in those times, and until today, is purposely considering North Africa as Arabic. It is quite curious to see that the whole world uses the so-called Arabic numerals, except the Arabs themselves who have chosen Hindu figures. What is their origin, and why do not the Arabs use them?
What is the most curious aspect is that it is the Europeans who insist on claiming the numerals to be Arabic. There seems to be a real conspiracy against all that is Amazigh and particularly against Kabyle.

  • The French are the biggest culprits in this scam of a so-called Arab people and a rich Arabic language.
    The Larousse dictionary says, for example, the Hammam bath « a typical steam establishment in the Arab countries ». incredible audacity from frenchmen. They do not hesitate on any lie to make their Arabs.

    I just commented on Wikipedia about the word Hammam to explain to them that the word hammam is an Amazigh word that means hot. Hot In Arabic is called skhoun …. if this word is not Persian or Hindu

    The hammam existed in North Africa long before the existence of Arab and Turkish .. I am curious to see if they will be honest to correct this scam … Larousse refuses and insists on violating the Amazigh language

  • But the word Hammam in arabic is not taken from amazigh, Hammam in arabic is not called hammam because it’s hot, it’s called hammam because in there people can « Yastahimmu », which means they can « Bath » (The word itself means bathing but is used in the context of bath) in english, « Istihmam » which is another variation for the word hammam means « taking a bath », a hammam is a hammam because you use water to wash yourself, has nothing to do with hotness.

    • Incredible the imagination of Arab forgers. Everyone knows that when we talk about Hamam is talking about hot baths .. not to design swim in the rivers and lakes of the desert of Arabia.

    • France who is the real office to patent your lies can not help you any more. The internet has arrived despite this forger of history and destroyer of cultures and identities. You have been orphaned forever. Islam and its Arab corollary are in agony and ready to be a bad memory for humanity.

      • Stop group all of Islam with Arabs. While Arabia’s population may be mainly Muslim, it doesn’t mean all of Islam is imposed by them. Please refrain from being so islamophobic and being hateful in general.

        • The complaint of hatred and Islamophobia do not work with the Kabyle. Go do this blackmail with poor Europeans, we hate Islam as hard as Muslims hate the world

  • The mentality of the muzz muzz is explained below.

    Extract from a discussion on a Muslim website about the reason for banning pork in Islam
    A: Jesus (peace and blessings) did he eat pork?
    B: The ban on eating pork came after Jesus.
    A: In this case why do people who follow the torah not eat pork?
    B: because they saw that the prophet Mohamed (sws) is right to forbid eating pork for Muslims

    What should they have done without the help of emperor Charlemagne and his successors?

  • la langue dite arabe n’est pas de l’arabe mais du punique . c’est la France avec les vendus internes et les turcs ,depuis la prise de l’Algérie qui a usurpé le patrimoine africains pour le consacrer à sa création arabe ,terme qui vient de aarav. La grammaire ALFYA avec la graphie revue du syriaque a été établie par les chrétiens numides de la tribu » des zwawas » pour servir l’arianisme (en version punique) qui évoluera en appellation islam tardivement. Pourquoi inventer des faux peuples habillés avec le patrimoine des vrais si ce n’est pour cacher les origines et les méfaits ravageurs des créateurs qui ont tout falsifié et détruit le passé pour prendre place ensuite? …les arabes fictifs ont bon dos. voyrez ce qu’est devenue l’église latine africaine et tout son énorme patrimoine. Bien sur des lâches ont contribué.
