Gog and Magog Do Mischief in the Land–Early History of European Nations

“Wealth and children are an adornment of the life of this world; but the ever-abiding, the good works, are better with thy Lord in reward and better in hope.   And the day when We cause the mountains to pass away, and thou seest the earth a levelled plain and We gather them together and leave none of them behind.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 18, verses 46-47

For the last several weeks, we have taken up the subject, “The Book of Cave Out of Darkness,” referring to the history of the White Race and their expansion from Europe to dominate the entire world.   We reviewed the hidden history of this people from their being made on the island of Pelan or Patmos, and their return to Arabia where they made mischief among the aboriginal people.   We spoke of their exile from the Arabian Peninsula into the caves and hillsides of Europe and their expansion into the Northern Hemisphere from the Arctic Circle to the British Isles and ultimately reaching the Western Hemisphere.   In America, they colonized and established their cave-like society, which means secretive and secluded.   This subject was studied from the perspective of our “Supreme Wisdom Teachings” from Master W. F. Muhammad, the Founder of the Nation of Islam in America.   We have also studied this subject from the perspective of the 18th Surah of the Holy Qur’an, The Cave.

In 1999, while visiting London, England, with a small group of Laborers from the Nation of Islam, hosted by Student Minister Hilliary Muhammad, I asked to visit Guildhall in London, where the huge effigies of Gog and Magog are erected.   These mammoth effigies represent the ancestors of the Anglo-Saxon race rooted in barbaric tribes of the Northern Hemisphere who roamed through that area bordering the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea, and the Caucasus Mountains.   Generally, these tribes are identified with the Scythians that are related to Teutonic and Celtic Tribes that fought against their neighbors and eventually clashed with the Romans.   These barbaric tribes conquered and ruled along with Germanic Tribes of the whole Northern Hemisphere.

According to the commentary on the identity of the Gog and Magog Tribes, by Maulana Muhammad Ali, they are the fierce people of European origins who have spread and dispersed themselves throughout their northern homeland eventually conquering and dominating the entire world.   The description of this people is given in our “Supreme Wisdom Lessons” as cavys or cave dwellers.   This is the most accurate account of their true history which they have tried to conceal.   This subject, “The Book of Cave Out of Darkness,” reveals their savage nature and brute force that they used to conquer all other people of our planet.   Their existence in a cave of darkness also implies a covering of ignorance.   It is in this cave man’s society where the Master traveled under a disguise to find his Lost and Found people of the Nation of Islam and rescue them from the society of the Cave Dwellers.

We have previously presented maps showing the regions of the earth which represent their homelands from Western Europe to the extent of the Caucasus Mountains and Cold Arctic regions.   Taking this subject into modern America, we are going to refer to yet another Problem dealing with the people of the caves and those whom they have captured revealing the Divine Help that has come to us today.   In the tenth problem of the Problem Book, we read the following words:     …“The uncle of Mr. W. D. Fard lived near this lake (referring to Lake Erie), in the city of Detroit, therefore, he uses the water from this Cave Man’s Lake for all household purposes.   A certain cavy told him not to use too much water, if you can help it.   So he only used forty gallons per day, but the second uncle of Mr. W. D. Fard, who has civilized the cavy when he used to live on the tree-top and dug holes along the hillside for nearly two thousand years–the exact time will be four thousand B.C.     So this same cavy cannot fool the second uncle of Mr. W. D. Fard.   And now he is using two hundred gallons of water per day.   How long will it take the first and second uncle to empty the lake using water at the above rate?   One cubic foot of water weighs sixty-two and one half pounds.”

In the first part of this Problem Number 10, we are given the measurement of Lake Erie, its length and its depth.   Could the use of the water represent the use of knowledge and wisdom to awaken our dead people?   We seem to get a hint that the Cave man’s civilization or wisdom is limited and is being interfered with by the second uncle of W.D. Fard with increased capacity to learn, and he is able to use two hundred gallons instead of forty.   In reality, each one of us who is awakened to the profound Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, is able to identify our captors and use the proper language to identify our dilemma which goes back to the time of Moses trying to civilize the devil or cavy, four thousand years ago in the caves and hillsides of Europe.   Is this a hint at the Divine Work of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and His Great Helper, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, who are using a higher percentage of the Supreme Wisdom Teachings to awaken our dead nation, and at the same time this use of wisdom is awakening the cave man’s civilization into higher stages of consciousness?

Could this Problem Number 10 represent the ongoing efforts of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as the Great Helper of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in making His Great Commission known?   Is the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan using the Supreme Wisdom in getting us safely across the Lake to the other side while giving credit to no one but Almighty God, Allah, Himself?

As we move in the direction of Tuskegee, Alabama, to celebrate the Holy Day of Atonement and the 18th Anniversary of the Million Man March, consider this study of the Problem Book and the Cave Man’s civilization, and the 18th Surah of the Holy Qur’an that is unveiling the true history of our adversaries whose primitive emotions and natural temperament is likened to that of a beast-like mentality.   Do we not have a Divine Right before God to rise above the savagery and violence that is breaking out in this land and in this government to teach civilization and moral reform to the uncivilized, restoring peace, and order, and justice to America following its reign of terror?

“And they are brought before thy Lord in ranks.   Now certainly you have come to Us as We created you at first.   Nay, you thought that We had not made an appointment for you. And the book is placed, and thou seest the guilty fearing for what is in it, and they say: O woe to us! what a book is this!   It leaves out neither a small thing nor a great one, but numbers them (all), and they find what they did confronting them. And thy Lord wrongs not anyone.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 18, verses 48-49
