Truth of God’s Reality Opposes Satan’s Counterfeit World of Falsehood and Deception
“Glory to Him! And He is highly exalted above what they say! The seven heavens and the earth and those in them declare His glory. And there is not a single thing but glorifies Him with His praise, but you do not understand their glorification. Surely He is Forbearing, Forgiving.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 17, verses 43-44
On one of those cold, wintry days in Chicago at the beginning of this year, Sister Sherice Muhammad and her young daughter, Hadara, accompanied me to visit the Bahai Temple and center in Wilmette, Illinois, to investigate further findings on the controversial symbol of the swastika, we learned that it is incorporated into the symbols of the world’s great religions, Christianity, Judaism and Islam, in particular. Because the swastika symbol was used as the insignia on Nazi Germany’s flag giving the time of Hitler’s rise to power in World War II, it has been associated ever since as an emblem of evil. Hitler contrived an Aryan master race and methodology to exploit all those who were not genetically connected to the White race.
History also shows that in earlier times such as the case of Jesus, one of our righteous brothers and a prophet was used by the early church fathers of Europe to shield and to hide their deceptive theology in order to conquer and rule the world. I recalled from my early childhood memories growing up in Michigan that I was always interested in the study of world religions. It was during both formative years while still in high school when I became acquainted with the Bahai faith and the history of Baha’ullah, their prophet and reformer who was born in Iran during the 1800s. It was during this same period of time that I came into the knowledge of Islam as taught by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and attended my first temple (mosque) meeting, formerly held at John C. Lodge.
This location no longer exists and gave way to the building of the John C. Lodge Expressway which runs through the center of the city of Detroit. It was during this period when I was first introduced to Islam prior to my graduation from Central High School in its centennial ceremony. I attended many of the fireside chats and met the sister of the great champion boxer Joe Louis, who was a distinguished member of the Bahai faith. We met on several occasions in discussing the Bahai World Faith and I would often challenge those gathered during those fireside chats on the place and validity of the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, particularly as his work corresponds to the work of Elijah as it appears in Malachi meaning My Messenger read in the 39th Chapter of the Old Testament.
Needless to say, it was inspiring and this exchange led me to analyze and respect all the world’s great religions. During these discussions, I learned that Baha’ullah was originally a Muslim and believed that he was a reformer. Great persecution arose for him and his followers in Persia. He suffered imprisonment and defiance by the “powers-that-be”. Ultimately, he died and his gravesite or tomb is located in Jerusalem in the Holy Land. It is amazing to see the narrow views that embrace fanaticism that prevail against new ideas of enlightenment, producing severe persecution, martyrdom and death in its wake.
Through struggle and perseverance, many of these schools of thought ultimately become recognized as having value within the global perspective of world consciousness. The same fate was met by the early Christians, Jews and Muslims in all previous cycles of history. The enigma of Hitler in our present era demonstrates that the misuse and misinterpretation of sacred symbols and their manipulation in the hands of unscrupulous men is damaging and undermining to the process of universal consciousness. By Hitler’s wicked use of the swastika, few people recognize its significance used by ancient societies around the world for more than 3,000 and even 7,000 years ago.
Additional societies that used the symbol of the swastika stretch into not only Native American culture, but to Original Peoples of the Pacific Isles, among them the Maoris of New Zealand and the Aboriginals of Australia. The clash of civilizations by the world domination of the White race has produced a genetic, psychological and pathological imbalance in the genetic tree of human life on our planet, and has particularly manifested itself in this one race who inherently believe that they are superior to all others.
The history of Hitler and his rise to power in Germany on the theme of the purity of their bloodline and the counterfeit grandiose scheme of their connection to Aryan nobility and a super race is an example in our most recent history as to the nature of the White race. America is trying to overcome these conscious and unconscious feelings of White supremacy, which they are now confronting most vigorously in our current political warfare.
Truth speaks for itself and the practice of hundreds of years of slavery perpetuated against Blacks and other Indigenous people in the Western Hemisphere is leading the world into the final war and conflict to end all wars that can only be concluded with the help of Almighty God.
Dhyani Ywahoo in her book entitled: “Voices of our Ancestors”, Writes from her Cherokee Teachings as a Representative of the Tasalagi Wisdom Circle, the following: “The swastika and the cross are ancient symbols of energy’s manifestation. The same principles of world formation apply to human life, receiving life force from heaven and earth; spiral out from your heart compassion. See that old human beings are relatives in this dream…. Creation is an ongoing process. Your thoughts bring winds of change.” I close with these words of guidance from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan that we should strive to create “A culture of learning,” and avoid falling into Satan’s wicked and perverted school of thought based on Tricknollegy and deception.”
“And when thou recitest the Qur’an, We place between thee and those who believe not in the Hereafter a hidden barrier; And We put coverings on their hearts and a deafness in their ears lest they understand it; and when thou makest mention of thy Lord alone in the Qur’an, they turn their backs in aversion.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 17, verse 45-46
