Many prophets are mentioned in the Holy Qur’an. But, the names of Moses and Aaron are mentioned together in a unique way.
Why? What does this really tells us?
We must be very careful what we think and/or talk of the words of Allah, that He has revealed.
On several occasions, I heard the Honorable Elijah Muhammad say publicly that the scriptures have been tampered with so bad that it takes God Himself, or one taught by God, Himself, to interpret the scriptures.
I intend, Allah willing, to say more on this in the next few articles. Years ago, I made a few talks around the country at different Mosques and went into more details at that time.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad loved his physical brother. His brother was named Charlie. Why am I mentioning this? It’s because it is important, as it has a direct bearing on all of our understanding of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. I’m in the process of making my witness of Minister Farrakhan clearer.
I’m in the process of making my witness very plain especially after his very, very, very, powerful reaction to what Allah recently revealed to him. That produced the messages he gave to us, to America and the world and he made this very clear this year.
These (his) messages had reactions from the most “powerful” people of this world. They did not like what he said. In my view, Allah reacted to their reactions to him.
Did you see, what I called the displays of “UFOs” to this situation? Did you see them? What was your reaction to this “situation?”
I used the word “situation.” It means: “a set of circumstances in which one finds oneself.” I must go back to this word “situation.” This is a very big word if you see this time to be the end of this world’s time and the beginning of the next world.
I see it to be that time–the end of this world’s time and the next that is unlimited. Both are in the process–right now!
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad loves Minister Farrakhan. I know this and “how” this relates to you, very, very clear, Allah willing. How does this relate to you?
For now, please look into this I wrote this over twenty years ago, here in Phoenix. The following was a part of a book:
“This is being written on what is called “Good Friday,” April 1, 1988; also called by some, “April Fool’s Day.” This didn’t occur to me until I sat down to write these words.
“It occurs to me, however, that the ironies and paradoxes involved in: “Good Friday” and “April Fool’s Day”–if we had space to go into them–might make a very interesting means of introducing an in depth commentary, or essay, on the prophecy that involves Moses traveling with an unnamed divinely-wise man, as described in the Holy Qur’an.
“The scholars and scientists are divided over whether Surah 18:60-82 is referring to a historical event or a spiritual experience of Moses, such as a vision. In either case, what we have here, is that which points to something to come, well after the time of Moses. In fact, these words refer to that which would occur in the time period called the resurrection of the dead and the judgment of the world, which is now.
“Learned men have expended a great amount of energy, over such factors as this: if this was a historical event in the life of Moses, when did it occur? Where did he meet this man? What impact did this meeting have on his mission? What does this event (in Moses’s life) and in the life of the one with whom he traveled) have to do with us? Other questions have been raised and several answers have been offered.
“Since this event is described in the book (Holy Qur’an) revealed to and through Muhammad (of 1,400 years ago), it is a worthy problem or question to raise: what impact did this passage have in his life and what was its’ bearing on his work?
“Then, too, there are detailed explanations that say, in effect, that what we read (in 18:60-82) is a vision Allah gave to Moses about Muhammad (of 1,400 years ago).
“All of these, and other questions and points are important and worthy of study and discussion. I think it best, however, to attempt to sum up some points we do not read in what the scholars and scientists of the Jews and the Muslims have produced.
“Let us start with the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad who said that those of the Black people of America, who made the decision to follow him, generally, followed him as the “Moses” followed the unnamed man whom Allah made wise and whom He guided. He spoke to me of this in October, 1960.
“The Honorable Elijah Muhammad had demonstrated before 1960, and since then, that he knew scriptures. It is a matter of public record that he taught that his interpretation of the Bible and the Holy Qur’an was given to him by Almighty God. In addition, he demonstrated the truth of his position, time and time again.
“Now, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was the one of whom Moses (of 4,000 years ago) was told of, by Allah, and shown in a vision. Allah made Moses to see that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad would receive a greater manifestation of God’s glory than he (Moses) did; that his (the latter’s) capacity for such was much greater than his; that it had to be, due to the nature of his task, or mission.
“In other words, Moses was helped by Allah to see that in the future Allah would disclose to a man the utmost truth of Allah and man! This never before revealed teaching would be essential for the successful outcome of his mission. And, of course, he had to be fitted–by nature and training–for success. He was.
“Muhammad of Arabia is reported to have said, “Would that Moses had kept silent, so that Allah would have revealed to us many more secrets of the unseen.” This is among, and is akin to, other statements that he made that clearly indicates that, wise and good as he was, there was a far greater disclosure, or revelation of God’s wisdom yet to come to a man in the future; after his time.
“We read in the Muhammad Asad’s translation of the following (verses 66-68): “Behold, thou wilt never be able to have patience with me–for how couldst thou be patient about something that thou cannot comprehend within the compass of (thy) experience?” Abdul Maududi translates this same passage this way:
“Moses said to him, ‘May I accompany you, so that you may teach me also that Wisdom, which has been taught to you?’ He answered, ‘You cannot bear with me, and you cannot have the patience with regard to that matter of which you have no knowledge.”
More next issue, Allah willing.
