Seldom has the Messenger publicly commented on the envy of his opponents. Once in writing of the prophesied reaction of many of our people to him, as recorded in the Qur’an and Bible, he wrote:

“So, they will scorn the meanings of it by one of them whose meanings have been taught to him by God, Almighty–that the scripture may be fulfilled; that He would send a teacher or preacher to us, the Lost and Found people; and raise him up from among us. Abraham and his son, Ishmael, according to the Qur’an, also prayed to Allah (God) that He might raise up an Apostle from among the Lost-Found mentally dead people. And, to teach him the knowledge of the Book (Bible) and the Wisdom (Holy Qur’an), that he may teach others of his people the meanings of what they read out of the Bible and Qur’an.”


“But, what does this do to many of the rest of the people? It causes them to become jealous and envious of that one whom God confers more of His Divine knowledge upon than He does the rest. This is what is happening right at this very hour. The Holy Qur’an plainly teaches us that everyone of us wanted the same thing that He gave the Messenger. That is the knowledge of the Book and the Wisdom of God and the Qur’an. It is prophesied that the Lost-Found Black Man would envy the knowledge that God would bestow upon his servant–to teach them the knowledge of that which before they knew not.

“This is the American So-Called Negro. The Bible teaches that they wanted to be shepherds, therefore the sheep went astray. What a jealous and envious people the Black people are.

“This is why we can be divided so easily against each other. It is because the devils soon see that none wants to follow the other.

“Look how they are reaching out at what I am teaching, placing it on their “coat lapels” and in their books, and mixing it up with their own corrupted ideas; just to be called leaders.”

This is especially true of the Black preachers of the Christian religion. The Messenger continued:

“And yet, the Black preacher today, in this modern, advanced spiritually scientific world which represents such falsehood. They scorn the truth of ISLAM (entire submission to the Will of Allah).

“Let us look at the blindness of the black preachers. The truth to the black preachers is like a powerful light suddenly focused on one’s eyes. The light causes the eyes to cleave due to the punctuating glare. Therefore, they did not get any knowledge of the light because their eyes were too weak to remain open long enough to see what kind of light it was. Their blindness is due to the devil’s (who were their teachers) false teachings that they were born and reared in. “But their minds were blinded, for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the Old Testament, but, even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.” (Read 2 Cor. 3:14,15).

“The preachers do not have the right understanding of the book, and are too proud to listen. They think everyone is wrong, but the devil, who has blinded them. They are blind to the knowledge of Moses. The “veil upon their hearts” is their disbelief in the truth of Moses, his mission and his work. The average preacher does not understand the true meanings of the Old Testament, nor even the New Testament.

“The real truth hurts and brings about arguments and disputes. But yet, the truth must be told. Most of what you read in the Bible of the histories of Moses and Jesus refers to the work of the Mahdi and the mission of the last Messenger among the black people of America. Moses did not lead a Nation out of Egypt 4,000 years ago. Jesus did not raise the dead, nor did He restore the lost sheep of the house of Israel. This is being done today among the so-called Negroes; for they are the lost sheep and dead, who have become a nation in a nation.

“Allah has left the preachers to remain blind due to the fact that they falsely claim to be seeing ones. They claim to see and yet do not see. Therefore, Allah has opened the eyes of those who are blind and do not profess to be seeing ones. The average black preacher, due to his unawareness of the truth, is in favor of the white race, and against self and kind. Blind guides they are, as the scriptures say of them, “In whom the God of this world hast blinded the minds, of them that believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel (the truth) of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” (2 Cor. 4:4). The Christ referred to is the Christ of the last days of Satan’s world, and not Jesus of two thousand years ago. Jesus was not the Christ.

“The blind and ignorant contend that “Jesus Christ died and rose from the dead just as he said, and the cold grave could not hold his body down. He (Jesus) burst the grave and got up the third day just as he said.” It is a shame that they do not understand Jesus’ birth, death, and the rising from the dead to be purely science. It refers to a Jesus Christ in the last days, rising up in the minds and from the mentally dead so-called Negroes of America.

“Jesus was born in Palestine, put to death in Palestine, and will forever remain dead. Palestine is the only heaven that he came from and the only one that he returned to. So blind you are to the truth. If you Mr. Preacher could only see, you would be a great help to the cause of truth. But, any man that opposes me and the truth that Allah has revealed to me will not be successful.”
