In Closing The Gap, Inner Views of The Heart, Mind, & Soul of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, you can read:
“Now, what happened between 1999 to 2006?”
Without any thought that it can or should be refuted, I will state here that The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, the National Representative of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, is the most respected and influential Black man in America, by both Black and White. To the extent that he is not, he will be–for the glory of Allah and His Messiah. You will soon come to see. And you will soon come to see why.
Don’t become indignant over this statement. Rather, look into the reasons for such an observation. Once the facts on which this statement is based become clear, then one can be in a position to see both the significance of the statement and the facts, which prove it to be true, valuable, and relevant to the struggle of Black people for liberation.
This is a bit much for an article but let us begin anyway. Let me go to two White writers. One wrote about Paul. The other recently wrote about Minister Farrakhan.
In The Holy Qur’an Surah 3:3 we read: “He has revealed the Book to thee with truth, verifying that which was before it, and He revealed the Torah and the Gospel aforetime, a guidance for the people, and He sent the Discrimination.”
Everything about the works of Allah tells us, who see deep enough, that He is consistent. He operates by the law and power of His own Holy Being and never contradicts, or double-crosses Himself.
He has not created the universe and ourselves and then revealed His word and will to us with such content and in a way, or by methods, that does not enable us to live in peace in His created universe.
Let us examine this phrase “with truth.” There are places in the Holy Qur’an where it is written that He created the heavens and the earth “with truth.” Likewise, there are places, in this wonderful book, wherein Allah states that He has revealed the Holy Qur’an “with truth.”
In footnote No. 382 to 3:3 of the Holy Qur’an, translated by Muhammad Ali, we read, “For the sake of simplicity I render haqq as meaning truth, but haqq primarily signifies suitableness the requirements of wisdom, justice, right, truth, or fact, or to the exigencies of the case.”
Notice how we all are interested in what the weather is going to be. If we are planning a trip, our expectations determine what we pack, what we wear, and in general, how we prepare for the future. Look at the world of gambling. How one bets depends on what one expects to come in the future. Consider economic trends. Do not investors seek to know what is to come so that they may make moves in the present that will make money in the future? Do not parents want to know how their children will turn out–in the future?
Look at the thinking and work of such persons as scientists and government leaders. Are they not constantly doing things with respect to the future? And how about the world of insurance? It is intensely concerned with the future? Many people in that business have become fantastically rich by getting us to give them money in connection with our futures.
All kinds of people make predictions.
Some are fakers. They rob people of their money. Others are not and do not make merchandise of others. The best of the latter types, insofar as the past is concerned, were the prophets of God. They are the ones who are looked upon by believers in scriptures, especially the leadership, as the most reliable of those who predict the future.
All right, if scriptural prophecy is the most authoritative source of knowledge about the future– what is it? What exactly is it? How did it come into being? Who were those who produced it? How sure or reliable is it? How does The Bible prophecy relate to the prophecies of The Holy Qur’an and to the books of the religions of others? How ought we to read and interpret prophecy, in relation to both the ordinary and the extraordinary events of our day? What impact should, or does prophecy have on our lives? To what extent does prophecy make or produce the events through which we live?
To these questions, other questions of value could easily be added. Books have been made to answer them. However, the ultimate answers to these questions could not come until the Ultimate Source of prophecy arrived. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that God Himself has recently arrived and has made known the answers to him–as it was prophesied and written of in the scriptures, such as in The Bible and The Holy Qur’an.
Just as people had to see the Honorable Elijah Muhammad before they could see Master Fard Muhammad, now, since the nation has fallen, the vast majority of the people cannot and will not really see The Honorable Elijah Muhammad except by means of the work of Minister Louis Farrakhan. This will become clearer as time goes on.
Isaiah, chapter 29, has statements that are not merely relevant, but actually prophetic of things going on right now in our midst. I here quote some of the verses at this point. Here are verses 11-14, 18-21, and verse 24.
You could read it in many newspapers or watch it on TV around the nation. That involves the President of the United States of America and other people. This also involves the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. I cannot fully explain now, what I saw. But Allah Willing I’ll go into that next article.
How many people are involved in this situation? Does it relate to all of us in America? Yes. And does this relate to being here in this country at this time? Yes.
A few of the meanings, of the word “spread” is: “the fact or process of spreading over an area.” “The extent, width, or area covered by something.” It also means: “the range or variety of something.” Minister Farrakhan has reached many, many more people, on earth, and beyond, much more than Paul who we can read of in the Bible? How does this help us to see the truth in The Bible and The Holy Qur’an, over the years, up into this time?
I asked Minister Farrakhan questions, over the years about his knowledge, and more, in the book,Closing The Gap. His response is clear and immediate. He did not know what I was going to ask him beforehand. How do you see this? Motive is a very important word, when we are speaking and/or writing about a person especially when you write without asking any question of him/her while the person is still alive.
Involvement means: “the fact or condition of being involved with or participating in something; emotional or personal association with someone.”
Complexity means “the state or quality of being intricate or complicated; a factor involved in a complicated process or situation.”
Why did I write the above at this time?
More next issue, Allah willing.
