I’m continuing excerpts from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s study guide number 17 on Hypocrisy and Conspiracy and then from his words in Closing The Gap.
“At their wits end, high officials in the U.S. government plan. If they cannot win in a court of law, they must exacerbate tensions within organizations and among leaders, creating mischief and causing the shedding of blood. But, “The Jews planned. And Allah also planned.”
And thus We made in every town the leaders of its guilty ones, that they may make plans therein. And they plan not but against themselves, and they perceive not.’ H.Q. 6:124.
“And they have indeed planned their plan, and their plan is with Allah, though their plan is such that the mountains should be moved thereby. So think not that Allah will fail in His promise to His messengers. Surely Allah is Mighty, the Lord of Retribution.” H.Q. 14:46,47.
Again, it is with this regard that I have put forward this Study Guide that we may not fall victim to History.
I wrote an article for The Final Call, of a people–who are self-righteous, whose aim was to discredit the reputation of Minister Farrakhan. What was the root motive? It is the same motive as that which the U.S. Government has: Envy. They are like those who hated Paul. Of them it is written: “But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spoke against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.” Acts 13:45
“But the Jews who believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain vile fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city in an uproar…Acts 17:5
“And when it was day, certain of the Jews banded together and bound themselves under a curse, saying that they would neither eat nor drink until they had killed Paul. And they were more than 40 who had made this conspiracy.” Acts 23:12
“Envy is going to plummet the Nation into darkness. But day follows night and if we can hold out through the night, we will see the daylight once again.’
“Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of the dawn, From the evil of that which He has created, And from the evil of intense darkness when it comes, And from the evil of those who cast (evil suggestions) in firm resolutions, And from the evil of the envier when he envies.” Holy Qur’an 113
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; who shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalms 27”
In the last article I quoted the Honorable Louis Minister Farrakhan’s divinely inspired words. “The term ‘Jew’ is not exclusively limited to describing a people who call themselves ‘Jews’. This term also describes a certain orientation of the mind and spirit. While the person may not be a ‘Jew’ in the religious sense, a person may be that by definition of his or her thinking and planned action(s) against the Apostle of God.
“When one feels that one has the exclusive right to something, because that exclusivity feeds the ego and gives that person a sense of being more important than others, then that person will oppose anyone who may cause him or her to lose that position of exclusivity. The length to which one will go to protect a position of exclusivity depends upon the degree to which the ego is dependent upon that position. The length can extend to murder.
“At the root of the lies and murder plots against Jesus, Paul, Peter, Muhammad, was Envy. Envy arose in the hearts of the political and spiritual leadership because one was coming to replace their rule; one more favored in the sight of Allah (God); one more pleasing and acceptable in the public eye.
“When one is an Envier, he or she always sees oneself as more worthy of the benefit or favour than the person or persons to whom the benefit or favour has been given. The hatred that the Envier feels knowingly or unknowingly, extends to the Giver of Gifts, the Grantor of Benefits, the Bestower of Favour: Allah (God).
“Since the Envier cannot climb up to heaven to the Grantor of gifts and benefits, his or her anger is focused on the recipient of the Divine Favour. Though their efforts (lies and murder) are directed at the recipient, their actions are in fact a challenge against Allah (God) Himself to warfare.”
Among the words “envy” that of describe grudge is a strong, continued feeling of hostility or ill will against someone over a real or fancied grievance;” malice, active ill will; desire to harm another; treacherous characterized by treachery; traitorous; disloyal; perfidious giving a false appearance of safety or reliability; untrustworthy or insecure; self-righteous, strongly, convinced of one’s righteousness.
Now we turn to Closing The Gap on pages 415 and 422. Minister Farrakhan
shows us how to “hold out through the night, we will see the daylight once again.”
Jabril Muhammad: Brother Minister, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad has given us prayers, using the words “seeking refuge in Allah.” The Holy Qur’an speaks of that especially Surah 113 and 114, with which it closes.
What does the concept “seeking refuge” mean?
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan: A place of refuge is a place where one goes to find complete security from any form of harm or danger. When one has a refuge in Allah God, one is placing oneself in the best most secure place or state of being. So that regardless to what is going on around that person, that person who not only seeks but finds a refuge in God, has found that place of the greatest peace; the greatest security; the greatest sufficiency of all needs, desires or wants.
David the Psalmist–troubled in his life–found a secure place; a refuge in God.
When the Psalmist says, “The Lord is my strength and He is my salvation. Whom then shall I fear? Of whom then shall I be afraid? The Lord is the strength of my life.” And then He talks about, “Hiding me under the shadow of His wings. And I shall not fear the arrow that flies by day or the one that cometh by night for I am shadowed under the wings, the protection of the Almighty.”
Seeking refuge, and of course, finding it–and Jesus said it best, “Seek and ye shall find.” So every true Believer in God will seek Him as their place of refuge. And then seeking they shall find that in Him is the best refuge.
One cannot seek refuge if one does not have faith that in seeking and finding that refuge that that place of refuge is sufficient. So faith is the prerequisite here–I believe in Allah, Who came in the person of Master Fard Muhammad. In Him do I place my trust. And in Him do I seek refuge from the enemies of truth and justice and freedom and equity for our people.
If you believe in Him then you will seek and find in Him that place of refuge.
“Farrakhan, why would you believe in this Man as your Source of comfort, peace, security? Why would you place your trust in Him?”
“I do so because before I knew a place of trust, I found a man who put his complete trust in Master Fard Muhammad and grew to know Him as his only place of refuge.”
