In December 2000, I wrote an article that appeared in Volume 20, Number 13 of The Final Call. Here it is, with the rest to follow next issue, Allah willing.
In the A. Maududi translation of the Holy Qur’an, 3:54, we read that, “(It was to carry out His secret plan that) He said, ‘O Jesus, now I will recall you and raise you up to Myself and cleanse you of (the uncongenial company and the filthy environment of) those who have rejected you’… ”
Reflect over this as you look at what comes below from the book titled, “Farrakhan: The Traveler,” volume one. On page iii in the introduction is this:
“The aim, purpose and objective [of the articles that went before those which appear in this book as well as those which appeared in it] is to help the readers think about the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in a manner that is pleasing to the Divine Supreme Being and His Christ, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
“When anyone disrespects another, they will, to some extent, disregard the words of the disrespected one; even when such disrespect is unjustified. Such disrespect leads to the underestimation and even (in its later stages) hostility and then hatred for the one who is the object of such disrespect. In these cases, it starts out as disrespect and develops into contempt. In some cases, it becomes worse.
“To disrespect Minister Farrakhan means that one will misunderstand the message he has from God for our guidance, welfare and the future both of our families and ourselves, regardless to your color, sex, age, profession, etc.
“It is my aim, in presenting these articles, to stimulate deep enough thought about Minister Farrakhan, which will increase our insight into this extraordinary man of God.
“One of the underlying purposes of these articles is to aid those who are joining Minister Farrakhan to help lift the name and works of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. How? By stimulating their minds to see the Minister more as Allah, His Christ and the original Writers of the scriptures see him. Why? Because it is only by divine sight that we can properly relate to him. Of course, this principle holds true in all of our relationships. The more accurately we see, the better we can relate to others; even to improving self that we might relate even better to others.
“The Authors (Wise original Scientists) of the Holy Qur’an 3:85, raised this question as they pondered our condition, 15,000 plus years ago: ‘How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their believing, and after they had borne witness that the Messenger was true, and clear arguments had come to them? And Allah guides not the unjust people.’”
Then, after a paragraph, I wrote:
“Only 144,000 were prophesied to escape the doom of this world, by some of the Wise Scientists. One ‘slim’ last chance or way was outlined in the scriptures, however, to save the millions of our people; even to providing others of this world a way out. It’s there in the scriptures. It involved the production of Minister Farrakhan–by the Lord of the worlds, and special preparation by, and the prayers of, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad for him, before his departure in 1975. All of this–and more–ultimately depended upon the exquisite execution of the Divine plan by Master Fard Muhammad, which is recorded in the scriptures. He brought the Honorable Elijah Muhammad into the understanding and into the power of working with Him to bring aspects of it into reality.
“The position Minister Louis Farrakhan is growing into ‘in this world’s life’ reflects the position of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in the ‘heavens.’ Furthermore, it is only from the exalted position–the pinnacle of this world’s life–that Minister Louis Farrakhan can meet with, and receive from, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad the new teachings that will eventually bring our nation to infinitely higher grades. He must go up and be up to meet again with his teacher.
“Finally, as we consider Holy Qur’an 3:85, remember Allah resolved the apparent contradiction involved in the question of how shall we be guided after having rejected the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, after bearing witness that he was true, in the presence of clear arguments. We’ve been greatly unjust to God and ourselves. However, as it is written of Allah, His mercy encompasses all things. From His grace, He has made special provisions.
“Muhammad of Arabia reportedly said that Allah had given to the world one part of His mercy and had reserved the other ninety-nine, in effect, for His people in the Day of Judgment. This is that day.
“So, this act of divine grace does not come from a contradiction in the character in the Divine Supreme Being. No. It comes from His infinite understanding and immeasurable love for us.
“So, let us show gratitude; and help our Brother, Minister Farrakhan, our people, each other, and ourselves from unselfish motives. Let our acceptance of our Brother–the Honorable Louis Farrakhan–be whole and not partial.
“May these articles help in that process. Thank you for reading this.
“June 17, 1983”
Then, from an article, written in May 1982, on page three of this same book, I wrote:
“Generally speaking, an analogy involves showing the similarity in some respects between things otherwise unlike that partially resembles one another. More specifically (in the science of logic), it is the inference that certain admitted resemblances imply probable further similarities.
“Analogies are properly used to help one see what you are trying to get them to see about someone, (ones), something or some event. Up to a point, analogies may provide some evidence that may lead to proof. However, analogies by themselves do not have the power to produce proof. No one can prove the truth of any argument or case solely through the use of analogies. Anyone who tries to do so is either lacking in understanding of the nature of analogies, evidence and proof; or is a double-minded deceiver.
“Analogies are properly used, to put it very simply, to help others see what you see. Naturally, helping another see what we see does not mean that what we see is true. Nor do we prove as true (in the ultimate sense of the word) a fact to be a fact by merely stating that what we say is a fact.
“Generally speaking, it takes less time to state something to be a fact than to prove that what is stated is true.”
After stating blunt but clear truths about Minister Farrakhan and his teacher, in terms of what was written in the scriptures, which is misunderstood to have happened 2,000 years ago, I wrote on page five:
“Envy is the main evil quality that blocks any otherwise good mind from seeing the divine significance in the mission and message of Minister Louis Farrakhan. Minister Farrakhan has crisscrossed America while delivering the knowledge of the meaning and message of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in an astounding manner. He has done this accurately and consistently. The reaction of the overwhelming majority to his presentation makes it clear that not only is his preaching of The Final Call welcome, but it is on time.”
Now, this is being written on the last day of 2004. Is 2005 the 70th year mentioned in Daniel? What’s written that’s coming up?
