In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
By the time! –
Surely man is in loss,
Except those who believe and do good, and exhort one another to Truth, and exhort one another to patience.
Holy Quran 103: 1-3 (Maulana Muhammad Ali translation)
All of us are in, or involved in the time of the great magnitude. I know that the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s “work” came from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
I also know that anyone who hears Minister Farrakhan speaking and you have The Final Call, I raised a question in an earlier issue why is this newspaper called the “final call?” Why is the word “final” part of this newspaper’s title?
I wrote this in a book after Minister Farrakhan told the world that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was physically alive. I intend to make this very clear why I did this, next article, Allah willing.
I wrote these few reflections over Minister Farrakhan’s message and work over the last 53 months, especially his tour in which he covered about 300,000 miles in about 10 months, including other engagements. What does all this mean? What, again, is the ultimate source of this meaning?
What did the public see and hear? The public saw a fiery, wise, articulate, skillful man whose love for Black people is actually more than a reflection of the love in the Honorable Elijah Muhammad for his people. Let me explain.
Let me right here remind the reader that these series of articles, on this subject, is not intended to prove, as much it is to state a view. These are merely articles, not a book, which is what would be required to detail the major points. The subject is the spiritual significance of the 300,000-mile tour of Minister Farrakhan in 1981, which, of course, involves the whole of his work.
The view we are contemplating is from the perspective of God. And this is not an arrogant position, for God has in fact visited the United States of America, as it is written, and has made His view known through His Chief Servant, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
I am a witness of the truth of Minister Farrakhan’s public view. So, the reader is asked to read with care, for the issues involved are of the greatest magnitude.
The greatest magnitude means in this the end of this time. This is a very serious time.
Consider the amount of energy he expended. Reflect over his sponge-like ability to feel the needs and absorb the problems and pain of others. Look at the continuous flow of his love, both for the man he represented and for the people he came to help.
What kind of prior preparation was required in order for him to do what he did, in the way that he did it, under and even in spite of the circumstances? You must have knowledge of the preparation – that is yet in process – to get the deepest grasp of the “meaning” of this, Minister Farrakhan and his mission in general, and this tour, in particular.
It is enough to state here that Allah prepared his mind and his heart. At a certain point, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad shared this preparation.
If you will but reflect over his journeys (spiritual, as well as physical) in the right spirit, you will conclude that you are witnessing (and some are part of) the work of God in and around our Brother. We are witnessing the fact that the same power (Allah) Who guided and backed the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is doing the same for Minister Farrakhan.
And, now, even though some of you don’t believe it, so is the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Both are, even as you read these words, backing our Minister Farrakhan.
All of us are believers, disbelievers and hypocrites, and Believers on all levels, are involved in the outworking of the purpose and plan of Allah, which involves the salvation of Black people. And White people are very much involved too. This goes without saying.
The Bride of Christ is being formed and is being made ready right in the eyes of the world. We are all making the final steps required just before the General Resurrection of the Dead (Blacks in America).
This is the grand finale of the gathering of the people to Christ, in Christ, for Christ, by Christ, to God, through a brother from among us – Minister Farrakhan.
If such people understood the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the Holy Qur’an and Bible as they think they do, or as they could, if they were sufficiently in tune with the Divine Supreme Being and His Will, they would have no problem in seeing Minister Farrakhan near to the way God, the Messiah and the angels of heaven see him.
You do not read anything in the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad or the scriptures that justifies any one of you – who claim to know the Honorable Elijah Muhammad – in either rejecting or partially accepting our Brother, Minister Farrakhan.
To deny him is to deny the mercy and grace of God and His Christ. To deny him is to make mockery of the concept of repentance. To deny him after four-and-one-half years of his own repentance and magnificent work throughout America, in obedience to the dictates of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, is to cast yourself into the furnace of hell.
Why do you think it is put there in the scriptures (Matthew 18:21, 22) that it was Peter who asked Jesus, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times?” Look at the answer that Jesus gave in verse 22. It reads:
“Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.”
If you know anything about the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the divine love with which he loved and loves us (a very ungrateful people), then you can better understand the nature of that answer in verse 22 and the loving and merciful spirit that Allah put in the heart of your Brother, Minister Farrakhan as he was preparing him for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, in particular, and us in general.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad did not accidentally choose Minister Farrakhan to sit in his seat in his absence. At a certain point, he knew exactly how this great Brother fits into the divine scheme of things that is wisely laid out in the Bible and the Holy Qur’an.
There are several brothers and sisters (most of whom were officials of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad) who heard the Honorable Elijah Muhammad designate our Minister Farrakhan, to make it short for now, to sit in his seat in his absence, and in his home.
This is Friday the 13th. I just read a newspaper, in Phoenix and on the front page was this: “Biblical Rains Flood … .”
More next issue, Allah willing.
