I’m about to finish, this very short series of articles, that started right before I left to go to San Diego, and then I saw and heard the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan both Saturday, May 26th and Sunday, May 27th.

I saw him on Monday with my wife and others over coffee, before he (and others left) to go to Chicago, which is the headquarters of the Nation of Islam.

A few days before we got on a plane for San Diego, a series of profound events happened, that caused me to see better and why he spoke in California as he did.


Then Minister Farrakhan spoke to the Nation of Islam on Tuesday, May 29th that evening.

These recent experiences reminded me of what the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said to many of us, in Chicago, in 1960:

“Whenever you want to do good in this old wicked world, you are always tried to see if you really want to do it.”

The above words, was spoken by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, in what was then called at that time, Muhammad Temple #2, Chicago, Illinois.

I was among those in the audience, when he spoke these insightful words, in 1960. His words express a profound principle rooted ultimately in the law of the creation of the first life and life since then.

To put this in more (not better) but in more, context, one Sunday, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad came to teach on the subject: The Lost Sheep. At the outset, he told us not to respond to any points by clapping, and the like, since he was going to turn on his tape recorded, at some point, for he intended that section of his speech to be aired later, on his radio program.

He got into it. It was deep, beautiful and inspiring. At a certain moment he reached down to turn on the tape recorder. Somehow the tape got tangled up. He looked so disgusted.

Brother John Ali, the then National Secretary, came to his rescue. As he was fixing the problem, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad stated the words I quoted from him, which I’ll here repeat: “Whenever you want to do good in this old wicked world, you are always tried to see if you really want to do it.”

With the passing of time, and through experiences, I have come to see something of the wisdom of Allah in allowing, or in some instances, producing such difficulties and then His “whys” of them.

I have gained further insights into this serious subject through the study guides the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has produced. They contain wonderful insights into this serious subject.

This is not a book, as you can see, or a series of books.

This subject involves the laws of success, including the need for “difficulty factors,” on a level that surpasses anything you may purchase in America’s bookstores, or otherwise.

Everyone today is doing whatever he or she is doing under severely difficult circumstances. This is due to the very unique nature of these times, which is that great time of trouble, mentioned in the twelfth chapter of the book of Daniel.

I’ve mentioned this in three books. One of them Is It Possible That The Honorable Elijah Muhammad Is Still Physically Alive ???

Many factors and forces conspire, to hinder, or are even aimed at destroying efforts intended to produce good; especially that good which fulfills the purpose for which and why Master Fard Muhammad visited America.

The greater the good one seeks to do, the greater the trials one must endure. The more worthy the goal of the good one seeks to do, the greater the effort one must put forth to succeed in the doing of that good.

This is part of the plan of Allah, however, as such efforts work to improve the worker of and the good for others and then the wicked are working more than ever to destroy that which is good for others.

It is easy to see the application of all of the above in the life and the mission of Minister Farrakhan, who, in my view, has been divinely made an example of success for us all. His success has happened and is occurring according to the comprehensive law, based on the foundational principle of divine creation.

If you love him and worked to help him, you have been or will be tried! Expect this 100%!

The same law and the principle out of which this law originates applied in the production of this book, which is titled Is It Possible That The Honorable Elijah Muhammad Is Still Physically Alive??? On the front cover of this book, it has yellow writing which reads: “With a letter from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad on his escape from a particular death plot.”

The history of this book has always been a battle, but a tiny part of a great war. While problems came up daily, seemingly aimed at frustrating or stopping its progress towards full publication, this law to which I am bearing witness to always came to my rescue.

Have you read the words of Minister Farrakhan at the end of that book?

It always comes to our aid, today, in the time and presence of Allah, in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, if we persist in our efforts to do good; despite our ups and downs, regardless to how severe the difficulties of our circumstances are.

The absolute proof of the explanation of all of this, given by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, is so profound that most people won’t believe it, at least not now, anyway. Minister Farrakhan has publically borne witness to this truth, very clear, all over the earth!

This goes back to the self-creation of the first life in space, before which there was nothing. It is the root or the basis of self-healing and self-renewal. It is the basis of that law, which produces help when no help seems possible.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, years ago, you couldn’t kill all of the original people of the earth. He said, it is impossible. This is due to the fact that the secret scientists, of whom this world is mostly ignorant, won’t allow this to happen.

He then said if you could kill all of the original people, then the entire creation or universe would fold in on itself and everything would disintegrate into the nothingness, which was before the original self-creation of the first life in space. Things would be as it was before the beginning.

Then out of the pitch-blackness and the nothingness of space, would come a Black man. And He would start everything all over again.

The law of success, which is rooted in the principle of the original self-creation of life, also includes the following principle, stated by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad this way:

“For every enemy that arises against the cause of Allah, He produces an enemy for that enemy.”

This principle works universally. It was also at work in the effort of the production of this book I just mentioned. So while one problem arose after another, to prevent this book from coming again into existence, Allah produced help to overcome those problems; sometimes from unexpected sources.

More next issue, Allah willing.
