Many people (billions and billions) have conflicting views of the words/truths written in both the Holy Qur’an and the Bible. They all say that it contains the word of God–the Supreme Being.
Nevertheless, great billions and billions of people, inside and outside of America, have conflicting views, about/of the word of God. But all of them have very conflicting views that they have made public in statements, books, etc.
The word “conflict” means: “A serious disagreement or argument, typically a protracted one.” It means more.
In the sixth Surah of the Holy Qur’an, Allah raises this question: “What thing is weightiest in testimony?” He Allah God–answers His own question. He states that His own word is weightiest.
Now, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad made very clear, time and time again, that no mistake was made in what he was taught. He declared that he was given the utmost of truth and that it came from the Supreme Being who he met here in America.
He also announced that he had the absolute cure for the ills of Black people, as well as the most equitable solution to America’s most explosive problem: the problem between Black and White.
Nevertheless, there certainly is no universal agreement about what the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said and did, nor even about who should be in his seat in his absence; even though that issue should be by now beyond dispute!
In this problem is the fact that we have hypocrites and agents that are in the Nation of Islam that involve money, prestige, murder, envy, etc.
Now, these kinds of questions involve the word “utmost.” Utmost means “greatest degree or amount, most extremity, of greatest degree, furthest, greatest, maximum, supreme and more.”
What is the root of this confusion, especially here in the U.S.A.? Why do people say they want agreement, when there is more disagreement in America?
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has been speaking so very clearly for decades that nobody can say, with truth, they did not hear clearly his power to speak and what he said, all over the world.
I’m in the process of writing my “Why” here and now!
The first time I “saw” that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad would “leave” to meet Master Fard Muhammad was in October 1959. I was just about to leave my apartment to go to the Temple (what it was called at that time) to give an aspect of the teaching of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. That was on a Friday night, in San Francisco. That gave me trouble, as I was going to the “Temple” that night.
I was shocked when I learned that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad would leave us–U.S.A. I gave them what I’ve learned from him using the book of Hosea in the King James version. I will not give those verses here.
After that meeting, I went to my apartment and I studied more and prayed. That gave me problems sleeping that night. Allah willing, I intend to give my reason for writing this aspect of my life, next article and why.
Now, I’m asking the reader to read Brother Akbar’s words some twenty years ago for a book I was working on.
Brother Jabril: At a certain point, Minister Farrakhan, became the object of jealousy and envy. Would you say that his desire to help others to help the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was met with and by that kind of evil in some others? My question is: how did he handle this, from your view?
Brother Akbar: Well, for a long time, I guess he looked at me as a younger brother in the Nation. He protected me from a lot of that for a long time.
It wasn’t until about ‘67, ‘68, I remember in ‘67, he went to New Orleans, and Hampton, and I think that was about the second or third college, I went with him on outside of the city. I didn’t go to New Orleans, but I met him in Hampton, Virginia. He taught in Hampton. That was the same time that he went to Dillard, and first met Brother Khallid.
This was in ‘67, he left there and came to Hampton, and that’s where I met him at on the road. But he kept me away from a lot of that. Then in ‘68 and ‘69, when I began to see it and he began to talk about, you know … .
Brother Jabril: Tell me about that.
Brother Akbar: Well, I think that, in that early period, what the Minister saw, was that brothers who work hard to be a helper of their leader, sometimes suffer from the mouths of other brothers, who just don’t understand. He said, “But these are my brothers, and they’re helpers of my father.”
He would always emphasize that.
I think that he began to talk about Malcolm then, when Malcolm said to Minister Farrakhan, “I wish that you were being an example for me instead of me being an example for you.”
Malcolm talked about how hard he worked to be the Minister and how brothers had problems with him. The Minister began to see what Malcolm was talking about.
He said the same people who are my enemies or who are against me, will be against you.
He began to see that coming. That was laying in the back of his brain. And as he began to work, and his star began to rise, he began to see it more and more.
And when he talked about, he would use the fact that he understood it, because he understood positive jealousy, he said, and so he doesn’t blame them.
He doesn’t feel nothing against them, it’s just that they have what is called positive jealousy, and that they love their leader, and they think that anybody is blocking out any credit or light that should go to the leader, then these brothers rise up.
He said that “I could understand them, but I’m not what they would want me to be. You know, I love my Leader, and I’m not going to try to get no glory for myself, or take anything away from my Leader.” I mean that’s the way he talked to me, which kept me on track. It was good. It was beautiful.
Now, I’m skipping for the sake of time and space. He told me he made some books and he would make public later on.
Brother Jabril: Now in the late 60s, in Chicago, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad started laying on him in stages, his identity. Did he come back and share any of that with you?
Brother Akbar: No. I don’t think in the late 60s he did. He didn’t lay that on me. But the first time that I think he was moved and he went into detail is after Atlanta, Georgia, in September 1970. I remember that clearly, when he came back.
I think he went from Atlanta to Chicago, to see the Messenger and I came on back to New York. But when he got back to New York, he said to me the Messenger, he talked about how the Messenger said for that one speech … .
Brother Jabril: Wasn’t that the speech he made in Boston?
Bro. Akbar: Oh that was the speech he made in Boston, but, no, the Messenger told him about the speech in Atlanta, too.
Brother Akbar: No, that was the one in Boston; right? The ones with you are worth all the, more than all the wealth in the earth …
Brother Jabril: … three separate occasions that he said that.
Brother Akbar: That’s right. But one of them he said it, one of those things he said about the Atlanta speech, and because of the value of that Atlanta speech, he told him about it. Then, when did he do the Boston speech to the ministers, and he told him, he was worth more than all of the wealth in the earth to him?
Brother Jabril: … three separate occasions that he said that.
Brother Akbar: Yes.
Brother Jabril: That’s important. Right after the Boston speech is when he made the third statement about his great value.
Now, I was not there when the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said what he said to Minister Farrakhan. I did not hear when Minister Farrakhan told Brother Akbar what came from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. I did not know of those words, or that experience, until many years after he left to go to the Supreme Being. I decided to make the above very, very public because I know these came from our father–the Honorable Elijah Muhammad–who is not dead!
I made the photograph on the front cover of the book, CLOSING THE GAP!
More next issue, Allah willing.
