The Honorable Elijah Muhammad wrote in Our Saviour Has Arrived, “If the Bible students would have taken this 50th verse of the 23rd Chapter of the Holy Qur’an, under study together with the birth, ministry and death of Jesus, as given in the Bible: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, they would agree that the man, Jesus, 2,000 years ago and his mother were a sign of something to come.
Then further down, in the same article the Honorable Elijah Muhammad states, “The son of Mary and his mother, a sign. Let us see if we can direct the sign and find something that corresponds with her son’s birth and the hostile attitude of the Jews against the prosperity and future of these two people … .”“Take this anger and dislike on the part of the beast that seeks to destroy the child of a woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.” If Mary and her son are a sign, or an example, of that which is to come, then whose birth and enslavement could correspond with these prophecies and signs any more than we, the American So-Called Negroes here under the White man?
And again he states, “In the Bible, the Book of Revelation gives a symbolic picture of the story of Mary and her son, Jesus, which is recounted in the 1st chapter of Matthew, but nevertheless, if understood, it is easy to see that Mary and her son were a sign of the American so called Negro coming in the future … .”
Please read the whole of that article. This is what we are facing.
I was blessed to be able to listen and really study my Brother’s words, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan on Sunday, October 14, 2018 commemorating the 23rd anniversary of the Million Man March. He spoke in Detroit, Michigan, at the Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre. As he spoke, I was deeply affected. He spoke right out of the prophecies. One such prophecy that came to my mind was what I just quoted above, by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
Now consider this. During the past 6,000 years, the treatment of women and children by the rulers and therefore, by men in general, has been demonic. She has too often been considered like things to be used, then discarded, as it pleased heartless men.
The spirit which has dominated the hearts of those with the greatest influence, in this evil world, clearly shows a selfish and disdainful attitude towards women. It appears in many forms; including the literature of the wicked societies which have dominated this world’s history.
In this evil world, especially in America, women are beaten, raped, and otherwise abused every minute of every hour of every day, from one end of this country to the other–especially Black women.
The legacies of the religions of this world makes her either near to, or the origin of, the misfortunes of men. The effect of such wicked teachings still influences the views of so-called modern men towards women.
What are the roots of this?
The people made to rule this world, for a little over 6,000 years ago now, were produced from ideas and practices that made them, by nature, the enemies of those from whom they were made.
This hatred included hatred for the birth process and, therefore, for women, and children, who were, of course, young and therefore closer to the time of the birth process.
These scientific and historical truths are at the base of the statement that mankind was born in sin and shaped in iniquity. Although this has a reference to the way Black people were enslaved and brought up in America, it has a deeper reference to that last bit of material that was dormant in us since the first life emerged into space.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught that this power was the last and only substance or material that was in us that had never been manifested and given an opportunity to exercise its power.
Even though the Original Scientists could have prevented this new people from coming into existence, they knew that it was now best to let it be. They saw Master Fard Muhammad coming. They knew that He would bring into existence the rule of Allah forever. It had to be before He arrived. So, despite the untold misery it would bring, in His infinite wisdom, Allah deemed it best to let this dormant power come to birth and work and rule for the natural time limit of the nature of its life–6,000 years.
I’ve often written, in this column, that the law or the process by which any one or thing comes into being is their, or its, nature. As we proceed, we’ll see how this principle applies to the spiritual births of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan–the body of Christ in general–in relation to the solution of the critical problem we are discussing.
This way (law and process) by which this new people came to be made them naturally hate the source–the original people–from which they came. Just as the law of governing the activity by which they came to be made them to hate Black and righteousness, it also engendered–especially into the male side of this new people–an innate hate of women and children.
Women give birth. The birth process takes place in women. Children are closer to the source and time of the birth process. Children remind them of what they were. So, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in calling them “a made hate” referred to the wicked and hate filled process through which they were born.
This goes to the root of such every day crimes as the beating and rape of women and incest too–the abuse of the weak by the strong. This is the source of their “might is right” spirit.
Certainly, this seems extreme. It’s only the surface. This does not even touch the evil in the feminine side of their nature.
Certainly, they are more civilized today than would otherwise be the case were it not for Allah raising prophets for their benefit.
In America, Black men were brutality brought up under the beast-like, baneful effect of the nature of wicked. So, it’s no wonder that we treat our women in a beast-like manner. They later taught us their diabolical religious teachings, especially concerning women, which further infected Black men with a poisonous attitude towards women so deep that only God Himself had the power to overcome it. He is.
The above factors are at the root of the mistreatment of women, children, the weak and the poor of this world.
Throughout the past 6,000 years, when people became so evil that divine destruction was their due, Allah mercifully raised up among them a prophet, messenger or a warner from Himself. Those men came with the way to reform the people who had fallen from His ways.
A primary peculiarity of each of these societies, was the mistreatment of women and children. The men Allah commissioned to teach and reform the people always had, as part of their work, the means of uplifting the condition of the women.
The problem of evil was cyclical. So was Allah’s reaction. When they rejected His prophets, whom He raised for their benefit, He destroyed them. In the Holy Qur’an He says that we’ll find not a change in the way He deals with evil.
In these histories, again and again, we read of the wretched condition of the women, the children, the weak and the poor. Repeatedly, each prophet Allah raised was given, not only what it took to rectify the condition of the people, as a whole, but especially the women, through whom the future generations would come.
More next issue, Allah willing.
