“And Pharaoh proclaimed amongst his people, saying: O my people, is not the kingdom of Egypt mine and these rivers flowing beneath me? Do you not see? Rather I am better than this (fellow) who is contemptible, and can hardly express himself clearly. Why, then, have bracelets of gold not been bestowed on him, or angels come along with him in procession?”—Holy Qur’an, Surah 43, verses 51-53
In following closely the genealogy of Adam and Eve as portrayed in the Bible some very distinguishing characteristics begin to emerge in this biblical narrative of God’s covenants made with His people. Even though Ishmael is the eldest son of Abraham, it is the younger son, Isaac, born of Sarah, who becomes the heir to the covenant God made with Abraham which allowed the younger to rule over the elder for a determined period of time until the elder would break the chain of this bondage to his younger brother and reclaim the rights of the firstborn.
The struggle between the elder and the younger is first painfully highlighted in the struggle of Isaac’s firstborn son, Esau, whom he loved and the trickery forged by his younger brother Jacob. Jacob stole his brother’s birthright and receives the blessing of his father under a disguise pretending to be his older brother, Esau. This story is interwoven throughout the painful birth of the twins, Esau and Jacob, struggling in their mother’s womb. When she inquired of the Lord why she was ailing, the Lord answered and said: “Two nations are in your womb, two peoples shall be separated from your body; one people shall be stronger than the other; And the older shall serve the younger.”–Genesis, Chapter 25, verse 23
When the twins were born, while struggling in her womb, Esau came out first and afterwards came out Jacob. … His hand took hold of Esau’s heel; so his name was called Jacob (Yacob)–Genesis Chapter 25, verse 26. In this same chapter of Genesis, we are given the name of Abraham’s third wife named Katurah and her offspring and it is afterwards stated that Abraham became the father of many nations. They all occupied the same land area which is today embroiled in war in the Middle East. Remember that the punishment declared by God to Adam and Eve for their disobedience in eating from the Tree of Good and Evil as beckoned by the serpent in the Garden is that there would be enmity between the serpent’s seed and the woman’s seed.
This clearly tells us that the serpent is in reality a Person who is tampering with the Divine Law of Almighty God Allah which is total submission to His Divine will. In reviewing the Genesis story of Jacob’s ascendance over his elder brother who was illegally robbed of his birthright and his blessing which he obtained through stealth and deception. We will also note in this story that Rebekkah, the mother, aided the younger brother, Jacob in teaching him how to use this Tricknollegy.
When Jacob said to Rebekkah, his mother, Esau, my brother, is a hairy man, (which I interpret as being a rough hewn or a man of the field), and I am a smooth skinned man (which I interpret as meaning slick or shrewd in character). So Rebekkah invoked Jacob to disguise himself as his brother in order to get the blessing from Isaac. When Esau learned about this deception and goes to his father to make an inquiry, Isaac states that Jacob came with deceit and has taken away your blessing. (Genesis 27, verse 35)
In continuing this narrative, Esau said, Is he not rightly named Jacob? For he has supplanted me these two times. He took away my birthright, and now look, he has taken away my blessing. When Esau asks his father what blessing he had for him, his father deeply saddened over this trickery on the part of Jacob tells his pleading son–Indeed I have made him your master, and all his brethren I have given to him as servants with grain and wine I have sustained him. What shall I do now for you, my son? And Esau said to his father, have you only one blessing, my father? Bless me–me also, oh my father, and Esau lifted up his voice and wept. … And it shall come to pass, when you become restless, having attained a higher knowledge of God and self that you shall break his yoke of servitude from your neck. (Genesis 27, verse 40)
The wrestling or struggle of the twins in Rebekkah’s womb and the two nations and manner of people she birthed is symbolized in the enmity between the serpent (Person) or Satan’s seed and the woman’s seed. (Genesis, Chapter 3) The strife and the contingence between their offspring is carried out throughout the entire Bible to the very end where Satan or the serpent becomes a full grown Dragon standing before the woman (Revelation, Chapter 12) preparing to devour her offspring as soon as it was delivered.
In following Jacob’s footsteps through the Book of Genesis, his characteristics and that of his people continue to unfold giving us a timeline of events in which the younger is always the master of the elder using Tricknollegy and schemes to master the rule.
The Divine Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad on the true history of the White or Caucasian Race and people is absolutely 100 percent true and reveals the root trouble of the nations of earth that are at war today. They are attempting to throw off an old enemy, the Serpent or Devil, who manifested himself in the Garden of Paradise six thousand years ago and deceived Adam using the woman, his weaker self, to ascertain his desire and aim to win converts as an open enemy and opponent to Almighty God Allah.
Everywhere Satan goes, he has altered the Divine Laws and Commandments through trickery or Tricknollegy that is now ending his world. We will also note in the biblical narrative or history of Jacob (Yacob) that he is found wrestling with the angel or with a Man ‘til the crack of dawn. … Then Jacob was left alone as a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day. … And He said, Let ME go, for the day breaks but he said, I will not let you go unless you bless me! So He said to him, What is your name? And he said, Jacob. And He said, Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have struggled with God and with men and have prevailed.
Jacob retained both names, Jacob and Israel, and is applied to the nation descended from Jacob, Israel. Literally this means he strives with God; or God strives or God rules.
“So he incited his people to levity and they obeyed him. Surely they were a transgressing people. Then when they displeased Us, We exacted retribution from them, so We drowned them all together. And We made them a thing past and an example for later generations.”—Holy Qur’an, Surah 43, verses 54-56
