In my last article, I wrote, “Allah Willing, please read my explanation in Aphasia 8. I could not finish what I was working on. I’m asking you to read what Dr. Patina wrote about the details of my hospitalization. Allah Willing, I’ll do what I intend to do in Aphasia 9.”
The fact is I’m not well enough to do it. I asked Dr. Patina Muhammad to continue #2 of my medical update in Aphasia 9.
From “Closing The Gap”, page 292 and 293 I wrote: “If you are in a position of leadership, you have the obligation to help rid our people of jealousy and envy–immediately. You must study its spiritual roots; the course it takes; the forms and disguises it takes on; the way it twists and distorts our perceptions; and the fact that this spiritual disease ‘attacks’ or cuts across all (so-called) class distinctions.
“We must understand why envy always leads to murder, if allowed to run its natural course, and finally, how to rid ourselves of it, if we are likewise infected.
“The Honorable Elijah Muhammad knew how to get up under envy. That’s essential to permanently uprooting and destroying it. Minister Farrakhan has demonstrated how to do this.”
“Again, it ought to be obvious to us all that basic to generating the power we need to truly overcome the obstacles we face in our rise toward becoming a unified and productive people, is our need to overcome and destroy jealousy and envy from among us forever–with love. Why “with love?”
“Numbers 14: 26, 27 reads: ‘The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, how long will this evil congregation murmur against Me?’ “
“God threatened to destroy His people. How did Moses and Aaron react?”
Now, I’m quoting from Mother Tynnetta Muhammad’s article titled, “Reflections Of The Meaning of the A-Tone-Ment” message dated December 16, 2003.
“The history of Abraham, recorded in the 21st Chapter of the Holy Qur’an, represents the divine work of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his greatest helper, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, who are destroying the false worship of our enemies as idols, taking them as god before God. Following the Million Man March, the lion in the cage came out into the open territory that truly belongs to him if he is to exercise his full freedom of citizenship along with all others.
“With modern equipment of the computer age and rapid transportation, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan was divinely guided to travel around the world in three historical World Friendship Tours to open dialogue for peace with nations as never before. This period began in 1996 and continued through 1998 with several peace initiatives and strategic journeys to the Middle East and troubled spots, including Arabia, to deliver the reconciliation and atonement message for peace.
“Since that interval of time, our global condition in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and the Americas have worsened with increased violence, humiliation and bloodshed. Yet, the number one problem that America faces in regards to her hold over some 40-plus million ex-slave population is still begging for resolution on the basis of justice and freedom.”
Now, I’m quoting from Farrakhan The Traveler Volume One page 106, September 4, 1983, if you have this article or the book.
“In most cases, it is wise to let a person, or persons, finish their work, or let it run its course, before placing a final judgment upon it. Even Allah warns us of this with respect to His revelations to those men who were specially chosen for our guidance. He thus warns the impatient.
“Broadly speaking, as Moses was to God, so was Aaron to Moses. Let us look at chapter 20, verse 70 of the Holy Qur’an. It reads:
‘So the enchanters fell down prostrate, saying: We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses.’
“Notice that Aaron’s name precedes the name of Moses. Remember, however, that God quoted, in His holy book, or represented, the sentiments of the people, specifically those from among Moses’ people whom Pharaoh used in his attempt to defeat the plan of God through Moses. These people (who really refer to the Black clergy class of today and, to a lesser extent, the political and educational class of our people) were exclaiming their excitement over their sudden realization of the rightness of God and Moses through the work of Aaron. Aaron was openly in their midst doing a wonderful work. They were overwhelmed by the power of his proclamations. They were coming to recognize who he was.
“All of this is really being fulfilled in our eyes today. There is a growing number of Black pastors around the country who are beginning to recognize that a truly divine work is being performed in America through Minister Louis Farrakhan. This, of course, makes them to re-examine the person, mission, teachings and significance of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
“Just as people had to see the Honorable Elijah Muhammad before they could see Master Fard Muhammad, now, since the nation has fallen, the vast majority of the people cannot and will not really see the Honorable Elijah Muhammad except by means of the work of Minister Louis Farrakhan. This will become clearer as time goes on.
“Isaiah, chapter 29, has statements that are not merely relevant, but actually prophetic of things going on right now in our midst. I’ll here quote some of the verses at this point. Here are verses 11-14, 18-21, and verse 24.
(I’ve cut out some of the verses, for lack of space, but I hope you will read them.)
‘Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder: For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid … .
‘And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness. The meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel, for the terrible one is brought to naught, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off: That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of naught … .
‘They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.’”
(Remember, I wrote this in 1983. Have you seen changes? Is Minister Farrakhan involved in these changes?)
“The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has declared that his Teacher, Master Fard Muhammad, gave him the complete interpretation of the scriptures, which mostly were written about persons and events in these very significant times. As he gives it to us it brings us up out of the grave of the worst kind of ignorance human beings have, or ever could be forced into.
“The above passages from the book of Isaiah point directly to Black folk in this country and the work of our resurrection now going on.”
More next issue, Allah Willing.
