Those who study The Final Call newspaper, if you study the words of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan very carefully you would see him better. That involves the next sentence.
I’ve sent these words to The Final Call several times in my article and included them in a few books: The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said publicly this: “Whenever you want to do good, in this old wicked world, you are always tried to see if you really want to do it.”
I did a talk, in San Diego, Calif., on December 3, 1995 titled: A Valuable Blackman, which also was the title of a chapter of a book I was working on.
I started with these words:
“My Dear Brothers and Sisters, I have a very important subject to review. You already know this, but I just want to review it. And those of you who are new to this teachings, or don’t have it all together, in your head, I hope that this, what we’re going to cover for the next hour or two, will cause you to make the kind of study that you deserve to make for yourself, about a very important Black man–the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
“Needless to say, any man, who can summon about two million Black men to one spot and the government not be able to stop that, is a man about whom you should know much. And not to take the time to avail yourself or not to find out how you can learn more about him is to do yourself a disservice.
“A brief consideration of the true value of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in the narrowest of terms is the subject of this chapter. Greatness in and of itself is meaningless except in terms of one’s value.
“Value is best measured in terms of service. Even though it would be taken as this author’s or speaker’s personal bias, nevertheless the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is a most valuable man in the sight of the Two who back him namely, Master Fard Muhammad and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and those who are with him.”
That word “with” is a very big word. Study it.
“…. On three separate occasions and this is what I was leading up to, between 1969 and 1970 the Honorable Elijah Muhammad spoke in a certain progression concerning the value of Minister Farrakhan to himself (The Honorable Elijah Muhammad). He spoke these words publicly, but I was not present.
“The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, ‘Brother, you are more valuable to me than a truck load of diamonds and gold.’
“On another occasion he said, ‘Brother, you are more valuable to me than a thousand airplanes with a thousand head of sheep on every plane.’
“On a third occasion he said to his Minister, ‘Brother, you are more valuable to me than all of the wealth that is in the earth, because the wealth of the earth I met when I came here and I shall leave it when I’m gone, but through you I will be able to get all of my people.’ ”
I did not know of those events. I was not there. But I’ve put those words into a book after the Honorable Elijah Muhammad departed the U.S.A. How do I know? Allah willing, I’ll answer that question publicly.
In another book, titled: Is It Possible That The Honorable Elijah Muhammad Is Still Physically Alive??? You can read this:
In the English Translation of the Holy Qur’an by Maulana Muhammad Ali we read:
Holy Qur’an 7:11 “And We indeed created you, then We fashioned you, then We said to the angels: Make submission to Adam. So they submitted, except Iblis; he was not of those who submitted.
7:12 “He said: What hindered thee that thou didst not submit when I commanded thee? He said: I am better than he; Thou hast created me of fire, while him Thou didst create of dust.
7:13 “He said: Then get forth from this (state), for it is not for thee to behave proudly therein. Go forth, therefore, surely thou art of the abject ones.
7:14 “He said: Respite me till the day when they are raised.
7:15 “He said: Thou art surely of the respited ones.
7:16 “He said: As Thou hast adjudged me to be erring, I will certainly lie in wait for them in Thy straight path,
7:17 “Then I shall certainly come upon them from before them and from behind them, and from their right and from their left; and Thou wilt not find most of them thankful.
7:18 “He said: Get out of it, despised, driven away. Whoever of them will follow thee, I will certainly fill hell with you all.”
In the fourth edition, and last edition of the book, Is It Possible That The Honorable Elijah Muhammad Is Still Physically Alive??? we read these words:
“After Jesus went to the cross and then, after some stopping off points, he went up to God. We’ve been told that he is with God today and is soon to return. This is what White folks taught us.
“We’ve also been told that after Jesus’ resurrection and ascension, Peter and then Paul arose and built the early church.
“The answer Minister Farrakhan gave indirectly points to the extraordinary position that he holds with God, His Christ and with the rest of humanity.
“Of course, he has discussed this in other interviews, but always to some limited extent, because such involves himself and he does not really take up himself as a subject any more than his teacher did.
“Part of my testimony has been, and is, that both Peter and Paul were among the signs–or types–of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
“The Honorable Elijah Muhammad gave wise hints and outright statements to Minister Farrakhan about his identity. Among these was Peter’s relation in the Bible to the Minister. He did it in more than one way.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad was speaking publicly about Minister Farrakhan that involves “On This Man Have I Laid The Key.”
Why am I putting this article out now, at this time?
More next issue, Allah willing.
