I was reading, or studying, chapter 29, of the Holy Qur’an, which is named The Spider. I saw this: Trials purify.
In the Holy Qur’an, English Translation and Commentary by Maulana Muhammad Ali, we can read this:
“This chapter is entitled The Spider from the fact that false, idolatrous, and polytheistic beliefs are here (v. 41) compared with a spider’s web.
‘The significance is clear: false beliefs will not stand the test of time, and they shall be swept away before the strong current of Truth.”
It starts with these words:
“In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
“I, Allah, am the best Knower. Do men think they will be left alone on saying, We believe, and will not be tried?
“And indeed We tried those before them, so Allah will certainly know those who are true and He will know the liars.
“Or do they who work evil think that they will escape Us? Evil is it that they judge.
“Whoever hopes to meet with Allah, the term of Allah is then surely coming. And He is the Hearing, the Knowing.”
I wanted to continue my words from my previous article. Now, I want to do that later, Allah willing.
I asked Student Minister Hugh Muhammad of San Diego some questions, for this article. Here are my questions and his reaction and then my reaction to his answers.
What caused you to invite the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan to come here to San Diego, to do what he does?
Who chose the name, or title, Guidance In A Time of Trouble, for his speech, address, lecture, oration, discourse, talk, that he has made all over the world?
Why this subject and why now?
I want to ask you one more question later.
“Dear Brother Jabril,
I Pray Allah these words find you in ever increasing health and strength. Please find below the answers to the questions you sent to me.
“1) What caused you to invite the Minister to San Diego?
“Answer) The desire to invite the Minister has been in my head for over 10 years. It was actually you, and I, along with others, sitting with Minister Farrakhan when he said he wanted to teach to 10,000 in San Diego.
“This has been in my mind since then.
“Then last year when we were in Pittsburg after the Bev Smith shows at the airport, he jokingly said I didn’t want him to come to San Diego. We had been thinking about it but did not believe we as a city had done enough or had enough growth to warrant his coming to the city.
“We had the influence in all segments of society here in San Diego, but the growth in the mosque, in my opinion, did not merit The Messenger of Allah’s visit.
“None the less we jumped out on faith and invited him and he accepted our invitation. At this same gathering you told me that the Muslim Sons would help to develop the city.
“We are now organizing now to fulfill what he and you said.
“2) Who chose the title?
I first asked the Minister what topic, or what would be the title of his lecture. Minister Farrakhan told me to choose.
“One day as we were preparing to design the flyer and needed a title Brother Richard, Brother Arif and myself were discussing different titles and Allah blessed me to say let us title it Guidance in a Time of Trouble.
“I remembered the Minister did a lecture with a similar if not the same title.
“3) Why this subject and why now?
“The scriptures speak of a time of trouble as there was never before. This came to my mind as I looked at San Diego, America and the World and the trouble that persists.
“It is clear to me that the only one in the world that has the proper guidance is Allah’s Servant, The Jesus in our Midst, The Comforter, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
“The Gospel of John the 16th Chapter 13th verse states (New King James) ‘However, when He, the Spirit of Truth has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak of His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. ‘ ”
“There is so much in John and the Gospels to see Him properly.
“Thank you for asking me these questions and I pray Allah He will continue to bless us to see His Servant properly.
“By the grace of Allah you have been a big part of me seeing Him properly.”
Early this year, I wanted to meet Minister Farrakhan after the last Saviours’ Day address. I saw something that involves two men–Muhammad Ali and Minister Farrakhan, which you can see them, all over the planet.
That did not happen.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad prayed for a “helper” and he did it in public. I heard his words on a tape. I’ve put his words, several times, in articles.
I’ve gave his exact words and wrote them in context 100%! This involves Minister Farrakhan.
When Minister Farrakhan is “gone” to see in person the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, I cannot fight others to put my articles out. I’ve have done the best I could to help others to see him properly and to see his relation to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Supreme Being and to others.
The word “properly” means “appropriately, correctly, in reality, totally.”
I did not ask Brother Hugh what I’ve said that caused him to use those words.
In the Holy Qur’an, verse 6 of chapter 29, reads this:
“And whoever strives hard, strives for himself. Surely Allah is Self-sufficient, above (need of) (His) creatures.
“And those who believe and do good, We shall certainly do away with their afflictions and reward them for the best of what they did.”
I’m quoting the exact words of the Holy Qur’an that I had for years.
More next issue, Allah willing.
