“And mix not up truth with falsehood, nor hide the truth while you know.” (Holy Qur’an 2:42)
This aspect of my articles should, Allah willing, allow us to see deeper into why Allah chose the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, to do what he does now and will do tomorrow.
Minister Farrakhan is slandered everyday. He responds to it, by the power of Allah, everyday as a Muslim. He is the best example I know of–other than his teacher the Honorable Elijah Muhammad–to respond to this evil. He also is in the best position to respond to this evil. He does it worldwide!
This subject is pertinent (or relevant) to my main purpose for writing. This is part of my reason, ever since I started writing my articles and a book over forty-years ago. (When I was able to make speeches, talks, addresses, etc., I did that in combination with my articles. That was before I went way down, when Minister Farrakhan and I were poisoned in December 1998.)
I intend, Allah willing, to cover the time period (December 1998 to February 18, 2007) when I was hospitalized. The doctors, at that time, said they did not “know” what condition I would be in when or if I woke up.
That means, I “died” or was almost dead. How do I know? I’ll come to it later. It’s important and its part of my reason for writing these articles over many, many years.
My son’s wife continued my column, while I was in the hospital. She used part of an un-published book, to continue my articles. When I was able to get out of the hospital, she continued with other materials, from an unpublished book, I wrote. I was not able to write my articles, like I used to write due to my condition.
Have you ever been slandered? How did you respond to this evil? How did you react when you really came to know that you had been slandered publicly? Why?
Is it the evil, called slander, at the root of evil? If you say “No” then what is the root? If you say, “Yes,” then tell us, who started it, where, when and why?
Will slander ever be destroyed, where and how?
Do you really hate these questions? Why?
Have you asked yourself, why the evil of envy is put in the Holy Qur’an Maulana Muhammad Ali’s translation in, verse 113? He did it in his translation. Did he make a mistake in his translation when he wrote “And from the evil of the envier when he envies”?
I’m writing this on April 13, 2010. Have you been slandered? How do you feel about it? Why? In my last article, I wrote:
“Now, I’m continuing from my last article that focused on words in the Holy Qur’an that are contained in it. I first wrote that article on April 1, 1988. I made it public.
“In that article I wrote: ‘The Honorable Elijah Muhammad loves Minister Farrakhan. I know this and ‘how’ this relates to you. Allah willing, I intend to make this very, very clear.”
For now, I’m asking you to look deeply.
One night, I had the opportunity to ask some questions of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He was very patient with me. It took time. Two hours. I asked questions like a small/young boy. He answered them–all of them–except the last one. He responded to my last question, with these words: “I see you like to know the whys of God.” He said it with a beautiful smile.
I ended my last article with these words:
“Now, how does all of this relate to the origin of wisdom–the wisdom of God Himself?
“The possibility of wickedness was present with the first God’s creation, but it took a long, long time to show itself–trillions of years. This God, Master Fard Muhammad, Who taught the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is in the process of erasing even the possibility of wickedness forever.”
On page 169 of This Is The One, I wrote:
“I would like to see how such ‘learned’ White men handle the following excerpt of the conversation between Malcolm and two FBI agents. This meeting took place, in Malcolm’s home, in February 1964. It certainly was not–as some have written–on May 29, 1964. For one thing, the contents of the interview make it one hundred percent certain that it took place prior to Malcolm’s publicly announced break with the Nation of Islam.
“The FBI agents did not know that Malcolm was taping them. The following are excerpts from that interview: The agents said they wanted to talk to him about “two problems.” It took them a while to get to the second ‘problem,’ which was their real purpose in visiting him. Here is the text of excerpts of their discussion:
Agent: I think that clears up that. The other problem is probably what you assume we came up for–to obtain any information you want to give us about the Muslims.
Malcolm: I don’t assume anything.
Agent: That is a very general statement on my part. But, as you know, we follow the activities of the Muslims as best we can, but we are always looking for new avenues for information …
Then the agent admitted they used the other so-called “problem,” to use their words: “as an excuse to push us out here to talk to you. Several of the fellows talked to you several years ago, as I recall.”
Malcolm: I haven’t spoken to the F.B.I. since 1956. It was about eight years ago.
Agent: Yes, about that. How is your suspension status?
Malcolm: No one knows but Mr. Muhammad; you’d have to ask him.
Agent: You are still on suspension now? You are not working or teaching now?
Malcolm: I am still under the suspension.
Malcolm: He is the only one who can give out any information. I couldn’t say anything behind what he would say.
Agent: I think he said it was a temporary suspension. As soon as you resume your duties, we would be–as you sure know–interested in having you help us out.
Malcolm’s answer was: Help you out doing what? We are always helping out the government. We have been cleaning up crime … .
Agent: Fine, fine, fine … .
Malcolm: We help it out more than it helps itself. We are at least able to reform the people who have been made criminals by this society, by the corruption of this society. And, anyway, to help it out other than that, I wouldn’t even know how to begin.
Agent: What we are interested in, basically, are the people who belong. The names of the members.
Malcolm: From what I understand, you have all of that.
Agent: No comment. The teachings, plans, programs.
Malcolm: No teaching is more public than ours and I don’t think you will find anybody more blunt in stating it publicly than we do. I don’t think you can go anywhere on this earth and find anybody who expresses their views on matters more candidly than we do.
Agent: I can only agree with you. You are right.
I’m asking you to read this article, carefully–what do you see?
More next issue, Allah willing.
