In my previous article, you can read this:
“For every enemy that arises against the cause of Allah, He produces an enemy for that enemy.”
“What caused me to react publicly? I’ll mention this next article, Allah willing.”
This is the “next article.”
I wrote my first book, some years ago that was public before the Honorable Elijah Muhammad departed. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad read it and made it public in his house. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan read it and made a public comment about it. I’ll mention this later on, Allah willing.
In one of my previous articles I wrote this:
“This principle works universally. It was also at work in the effort of the production of this book. 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.
“Allah blessed me, directly and through certain Brothers and Sisters and a few Caucasians to make this my first book a reality. These Caucasians helped me, at crucial moments. They were more respectful than many of my own people.”
Now, some people will want to use that book for selfish reasons/purposes.
Since no book, in the ordinary since of the word, is ever the product of one person’s mind, I extend my deepest thanks, gratitude and appreciation to each person, who in any way helped me with this work.
A few did both. All gave me the benefits of their views; a few of which were extensive. Others helped in other ways. However, whether anyone did a little or a lot I thank each person with all of my heart.
It is clearly stated in the Holy Qur’an that whoever participates in a good work has a share in its good consequences and, to work in the cause of Allah is to be involved in the greatest work.
Moreover, the Holy Qur’an teaches that He rewards such workers many times beyond the effort they put into such work.
Now, after you have read this book, you’ll come to the place where I have mentioned all of those who have helped me with this book, over the years.
I wrote a few years ago that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad told a few of us about the evil people who threw a donkey into a pit. They started throwing stones at the donkey. Despite the pain, the donkey endured. Eventually, the wicked filled the pit with their stones. Then the donkey walked out of the pit.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad then said to us, “every knock is a boost.”
The aim, purpose and objective [of the articles that went before those which appear in this book as well as those which appeared in it, is to] help the readers think about the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in a manner that is pleasing to the Divine Supreme Being and His Christ, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
When anyone disrespects another, they will, to some extent disregard the words of the disrespected one; even when such disrespect is unjustified. Such disrespect leads to the underestimation and even (in its later stages) hostility and then hatred for the one who is the object of such disrespect. In these cases, it starts out as disrespect and develops into contempt. In some cases, it becomes worse.
To disrespect Minister Farrakhan means that one will misunderstand the message he has from God for our guidance, welfare and the future both of our families and ourselves, regardless to your color, sex, age, profession, etc.
It is my aim, in presenting these articles, to stimulate deep enough thought about Minister Farrakhan, which will increase our insight into this extraordinary man of God.
One of the underlying purposes of these articles is to aid those who are joining Minister Farrakhan to help lift the name and works of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. How? By stimulating their minds to see the Minister more as Allah, His Christ and the original Writers of the scriptures, see him. Why? Because it is only by divine sight that we can properly relate to him.
Of course, this principle holds true in all of our relationships. The more accurately we see the better we can relate to others; even to improving self that we might relate even better to others.
The Authors (Wise original Scientists) of the Holy Qur’an 3:85, raised this question as they pondered our condition, 15,000 plus years ago: “How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their believing, and after they had borne witness that the Messenger was true, and clear arguments had come to them? And Allah guides not the unjust people.” Then after a paragraph I wrote:
Only 144,000 were prophesied to escape the doom of this world, by some of the Wise Scientists. One “slim” last chance, or way was outlined in the scriptures, however, to save the millions of our people; even to providing others of this world a way out. It’s there in the scriptures. It involved the production of Minister Farrakhan, by the Lord of the worlds, and special preparation by and the prayers of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad for him, before his departure in 1975.
All of this, and more, ultimately depended upon the exquisite execution of the Divine plan by Master Fard Muhammad, which is recorded in the scriptures. He brought the Honorable Elijah Muhammad into the understanding and into the power of working with Him to bring aspects of it into reality.
The position Minister Farrakhan is growing into “ … in this world’s life … ” reflects the position of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in the “heavens.” Furthermore, it is only from the exalted position, the pinnacle of this world’s life that Minister Farrakhan can meet with and receive from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the new teachings that will eventually bring our nation to infinitely higher grades. He must go up and be up to meet again with his teacher.
Finally, as we consider Holy Qur’an 3:85, remember Allah resolved the apparent contradiction involved in the question of how shall he/she be guided after having rejected the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, after bearing witness that he was true, in the presence of clear arguments. We’ve been greatly unjust to God and ourselves. However, as it is written of Allah, His mercy encompasses all things. From His grace He has made special provisions.
Muhammad of Arabia reportedly said, Allah had given to the world one part of His mercy and had reserved the other 99, in effect, for His people in the Day of Judgment. This is that day.
This act of Divine grace does not come from a contradiction in the character in the Divine Supreme Being. It comes from His infinite understanding and immeasurable love for us.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has made it clear, time and again, that our attitude–in all circumstances–is a major factor in energizing us to do what we must do, to properly relate to self, kind and others, in order to realize our potential.
Moreover, Minister Farrakhan has set an inspiring example of the principles involved in self-development and proper attitude. The lessons he has taught on this subject will prove more valuable than ever, in the upcoming weeks and months.
“And when thou seest them, their persons please thee; and if they speak, thou listenest to their speech. They are like pieces of wood, clad with garments. They think every cry to be against them. They are the enemy, so beware of them. May Allah destroy them! How they are turned back! (Holy Qur’an 63:4)
“And whoever keeps his duty to Allah, He ordains a way out for him, and gives him sustenance from whence he imagines not.” Holy Qur’an 65: 3
More next issue, Allah willing.
