We Need Not Have Fear For The Future
These above words are those of disbelievers and hypocrites. The disbelievers and hypocrites of prophets and messengers of God never want to give them credit and honor and bear witness with them in saying that the message they are delivering to the people is from the Lord of the Worlds (God).
They always wish to give the lie to what a Divine Messenger or warner brings to the people from God. They say he has forged it or it is of his own making. It is not what God said, it is his saying. These are the words of disbelievers, hypocrites and proud ones against the truth and the bearers of truth.
The above verse says to the Messenger that he is to warn a people to whom no warner has come before him. Many of the writers on the history of Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) of nearly 1,400 years ago, write that Muhammad was the first prophet that Mecca had ever seen. Even Maulana Muhammad Ali, who translated the Holy Qur’an in English, says in his footnotes on this verse that Muhammad was the first prophet that Mecca had ever seen and that he was raised among the descendants of Ishmael.
How do the scholars and writers of Islam say such when, if they make Muhammad a descendant of Ishmael they are condemning their own sayings that he was the first prophet of Mecca, when both Abraham and Ishmael were prophets according to the Holy Qur’an. Even the Bible and all religious people recognize Abraham as being a prophet.
Therefore, Muhammad could not have been the first prophet, because the very significance of the signs that Abraham and Ishmael built in Mecca tells us much about the type of prophet and people that would be raised up in the last days. So how can they say that this revelation refers to Mecca, the Meccans and Muhammad.
It reads: “Thou mayest warn a people to whom no warner has come before that they may walk aright.” This condemns the very fundamental teaching of the origination of the Prophets and Guides for the people coming from that direction, from the East. Mecca has been a sacred place. God, Himself, has protected its sacredness ever since time immemorial.
How then could this be a savage and unknown of the righteous and of even a righteous warner if there were not the will of God to keep that city sacred and deserving as a sign of righteousness?
Then how can the scholars say that it has not even seen a prophet or a warner from Allah? Would Abraham and Ishmael have chosen a more wicked place to set up a sign of the last warner and his people, which the Kaaba and black stone represents?
The very words, “to whom no warner has come before,” that they put in a book that is called the last revelation of Allah to the people could not mean Mecca. The last warner and the last people to whom prophets and the truth have never come to are the same people that the Bible and Holy Qur’an refer to as being blind, deaf, dumb and (mentally) dead, who must be resurrected before there can be a judgment of the wicked.
No people answer this description better than the American so-called Negroes. And there is no country that better represents that description of where no prophets have been sent than America. As far back as history takes us in reference to America, we find no prophet of Allah preaching Islam or warning the people in the Western Hemisphere of a coming judgment and to submit to the will of Allah that they may be saved from the destruction of that day. It is America.
The prayer of Abraham does not refer to the raising up of a prophet in Arabia, but of a prophet among that particular seed or people of his, who must be searched for, located and found, a teacher must be given to them from Allah to teach and warn them of the purpose of Allah and the purpose of the Messenger being raised among them.
The Bible gives us a very clear prophecy and knowledge of this particular last messenger in many places. It is that he is the first and the last who will be among the people, because they would be the only and last people who would be without the guidance of Allah at the end of the world and must be guided into the path of Allah if they are to be saved from the destruction of the enemies of Allah who had deceived and now hold that people in bondage–the true descendants of Ishmael of whom Ishmael himself was a prototype and his mother the outcast.
There are many erroneous mistakes made by the scholars and scientists that have caused much misunderstanding of the truth. There are many Arabs throughout the world who cannot bear witness to anyone that another messenger would rise up after Muhammad, who was here nearly 1,400 years ago. This is due to their misunderstanding of the Holy Qur’an and the scriptures of the Prophets Abraham, Moses, Jesus and even Muhammad, himself.
They forget that the Bible prophesies of a lost member of the nation of the original people of the earth, who would be lost somewhere on the earth. But neither the Bible nor the Holy Qur’an specifies the place. The nearest the Bible comes to it is that they would be lost in the wilderness. That fits America.
And Moses says that God told him (Deut. 18:18) “I will raise them up a prophet from among thy brethern like unto thee and will put my words in his mouth and shall speak unto them all that I command him.”
This is an answer or a prophecy that compares with the prayer of Abraham–that God raised up a messenger from among them and taught him the wisdom and the book, because his people would not have knowledge of the book and were only guessing at its meaning. This book is referring to the Bible– that they were guessing at its meaning.
This is true! Thousands of preachers here are preaching the Bible and do not understand the true meaning of it. They only guess at its meaning.
It is not true that the Bible was being taught and preached by the Arab people before Muhammad. The Torah was used among the Jewish people but not in the vicinity of Mecca and its inhabitants. A prophet would be raised among a people and that this man would be like Moses, but the Holy Qur’an and Bible do not give the direct place where this people would be. Moses was raised among his brethren to warn and guide them, and they were the ones who rejected him at first. And it was Moses that God spoke to that a last messenger would be like him.
Moses’ people had not had a prophet to come to them from God before the raising up of Moses, and they did not know the scripture because Pharaoh had them worshiping in his false religion. Therefore, Moses had to preach a new God and a new religion to the Hebrews and give them a new concept of God and His religion.
So shall it be with the last messenger. His people must be taught about the true God and that God’s true religion which the slave-masters did not teach them. The Holy Qur’an backs up the truth of Allah, that He always raises an apostle from among a people whom He would warn.
If Allah would warn America and the poor slaves who have been blinded and made deaf and dumb by their masters, should not that messenger be one of the so-called Negroes instead of a so-called Negro trying to learn from what Muhammad said to the Arabs nearly 1,400 years ago. This is a guide for us today? It does not stop there.
We have to have something more; therefore, the Holy Qur’an prophesies of another scripture being given, and the Bible also prophesies of another scripture being given in the time of the judgment, because the Holy Qur’an takes us up to the resurrection of the dead but not beyond that.
“Warning a people whom no warner has come before that they may walk aright.” It is directed at the American so-called Negroes in North America. As Jesus comes close to revealing the whereabouts of the lost members of a great nation in these words, “that he was sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, or in the house of Israel.” He did not say that he was sent to the lost Israel, but to the lost sheep in the house of Israel. The lost sheep are not Israel. The lost sheep were in the house or government of Israel and were swallowed up by Israel so thoroughly that they were always overlooked.
But we just cannot overlook the prophecy of Ezekiel wherein he prophesies that God said, “Even I will go and search for them, and I will bring them again and settle them in their own land and among their own people.”
This is referring to the so-called Negroes. And Isaiah says in his prophecy concerning us that God said He would call them by a new name that He, Himself, would give them, one of His own names, and would take away the names of the enemy and would slay the enemy.
Let us remember that we must understand the truth of prophecy, the sayings of the Holy Qur’an and Bible on this subject, and then place them where they belong and not try to fit them in some place where they do not belong.
