I ended the previous article with these words:
“Some scholars translate the Arabic with these words: ‘Satan has seduced them, and holds out false promises to them.’
“Some people will not accept the truth of my next article. The above contains all of the truth and God’s reaction to this situation.”
Here is the reaction:
Many people don’t agree of the truth of it that came from God Himself. Is this the end of time? What does this mean from the scholars of the U.S.A. and their study of it? Does this involve the Christian ministers and does this involve the Bible? How many Bibles are in America?
Much has been spoken and written about Malcolm, and his former teacher, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
I wrote an article, some years ago, that contains these words:
“This has intensified, recently, since the release of the movie titled, ‘Malcolm X.’ ”
How many truths are/was there in this movie? How can you get to the truth of it? Do you really know or knew Brother Malcolm, better than the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, who knew him for years?
How many people who are scholars talk, and talk publicly without knowledge of both of them–Brother Malcolm and Minister Farrakhan? How many people write (publicly) about the Nation of Islam without knowing the Honorable Elijah Muhammad?
One of the meanings of the word “scholar” is: “a learned person, especially an academic specialist in one area of knowledge.”
Whenever a person writes articles and/or books they have a motive for doing it. They cannot say, “I just did it.”
There are some books out publicly that contain the relationship between the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Brother Malcolm. How much of it contains the truth of it? Yet, there are other books made publicly that write about the relationship between the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, Brother Malcolm and Minister Farrakhan. How much of it contains the truth?
Why not? Is one of the reasons money? Or are there other reasons involved? Does this also involve that they don’t like (or hate) the Honorable Elijah Muhammad? Does this also involve the Nation of Islam? What is the motivation?
One of the meanings of “motives” is: “something as a need or desires that causes a person to act.” What causes some people to write books without proper knowledge–which involves the full truth of it?
Look at the problem this verse presents. Look at the word “how.” What does the word “how” mean? Among its meanings are: “in what way or manner; to what degree, extent, or amount; for what reason or purpose; at what price, for what sum; to what effect; with what meaning.”
The word “how” also refers to “a manner, method, or means of doing or bringing about something.”
Let’s go back to before the departure of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in February 1975.
If we could see what was about to happen to the Nation of Islam, from the perspective of Allah and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, and if you had the power to either prevent the fall of the Nation, or to allow it to fall and bring it back again, what would you have done? Would it have been wise to prevent it from falling?
The answer, simply stated, is NO.
On the other hand, if it were wiser to permit the Nation to fall, then one of the many questions that would have to be decided was the question of “how” the Nation would be revived. This and other decisions would have to be decided before the Nation fell. Obviously they were.
Then don’t you think that Master Fard Muhammad and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad came to see eye to eye on the best method by which the question of “how” should be answered? Don’t you think the former brought the latter to see the “how” as He did?
We are not considering some arbitrary, capricious, superficial choice involving Minister Louis Farrakhan. We are dealing with a very important aspect of an action involving Minister Farrakhan that flows out of the infinite wisdom and eternal counsel of God–the Supreme Being Himself.
Let us not trifle with such a serious matter, which the prophecies of the scriptures, fulfilled in Minister Farrakhan implies. He does not sit in the seat of his teacher from his own choice. He is the choice of the Being Who knows what we think and feel; even to what our minds suggest before it forms in our minds; Who comprehends all things.
The wisdom involved in permitting the Nation of Islam to fall is the same wisdom used in causing its rise.
He made the decision that Minister Farrakhan must sit in the seat of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad; for wise reasons, which benefits all who accept His will.
Minister Farrakhan had absolutely nothing to do with his being chosen (to do what he has done) any more than he had to do with his birth and genetic make up!
The decision was exercised by the Living God, Master Fard Muhammad, for the Minister to function as he does. Actually, this illustrious Minister was assigned his task thousands of years ago.
In the book of John (Chapter 16) we read that Jesus said that he had to go away; that it was necessary and even beneficial for his followers that he leave. But, he told them, not to worry because the Father Himself would send them another, in his name (character, authority … ).
This has more than one reference. The one I am referring to, here, involves the departure of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the rise of Minister Farrakhan in 1977 to do as he has.
Stop and think for a minute. Think about the kind of dedication, determination and the intensity of the love in the Honorable Elijah Muhammad for Black people.
Think about what he taught us of his Teacher’s love (Master Fard Muhammad) for us, that it is greater than a mother’s love for her child.
Do you think that They would be careless in providing and preparing the perfect answer to the question of “how” we were to be guided “… who disbelieved after their believing …” ?
Notice the second sentence in verse 85: “And Allah guides not the unjust people.” Think about these words. Can you not see how much of a mercy our Brother, Minister Louis Farrakhan is; a fallen Brother whom God lifted up from His own wisdom, in answer to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s prayer both for more time and for the protection and rise of the Honorable Louis Farrakhan before his departure?
The Minister is also a mercy to White people, although most of them do not understand that he is and why they need mercy from the true and Living God. They will.
Have not you seen our Brother gratefully state that he is backed by the grace of God and the Lamb? How can any of you who followed the Honorable Elijah Muhammad prior to 1975 deny the grace of God flowing through our Brother and yet claim to love the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and our people?
One has a perfect right to, at least suspect the claims and the motives of those who state now that they really were with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, when they claim to have a problem with a man–Minister Farrakhan–who is clearly with his teacher and is working night and day to properly represent, honor, and please him.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad used to say that some, if not most of his best followers were still in the streets. He was saying that many of us who said we were with him were not as sincere as we claimed. He was no fool. Nor was he naive. He knew people altogether.
When speaking of his future followers (who would be joined in true brother/sisterhood with some of those who were with him prior to 1975) he would often say: “And they won’t fear the censure nor their censure.”
To censure means “to express strong disapproval of; to give an official rebuke of; to criticize severely; to blame; to denounce, condemn, attack and brand.” It also involves fault finding.
Led by a great many Jews, the leading figures in the United States government, the press of this country and others belched out a torrent of lies, half-truths and general slander and threats against the Honorable Louis Farrakhan. The Senate voted to censure him 95 – 0, some years ago.
He showed no fear of them nor their censure, as the Holy Qur’an and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said of a certain group of Muslims, who are growing throughout America.
“O you who believe, (speaking to those who followed the Honorable Elijah Muhammad before 1975), should any one of you turn back from his religion, then Allah will bring a people, whom He loves and who love Him, humble towards believers, mighty against the disbelievers, striving hard in Allah’s way and not fearing the censure of any censure. This is Allah’s grace–He gives it to whom He pleases. And Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing.” (5:54)
That people whom Allah is bringing out of darkness into His marvelous light, are being formed now.
They cut across every imaginable line, artificially contrived by Satan, or by such things as age, profession, education, economic status, etc., etc.
Minister Farrakhan is drawing Blacks and others, from everywhere to the banner of true liberty!
More next issue, Allah willing.
