“And your Lord says: ‘Pray to Me, I will answer you. Those who disdain My service will surely enter hell, abased.’ ” -Holy Qur’an 40:60
What the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan speaks and acts from and urges all to acquire is certain knowledge, not theories. He teaches what he does from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, who received what he did from God, Himself.
Theories are like conjectures, opinions, speculations, assumptions, presumptions, beliefs, suppositions and guesses. None of these will ultimately help the Original and poor people of the world up out of their condition of ignorance, illness, misery and poverty.
Only supreme truth today will resolve the problems of humanity. That supreme wisdom was brought to America and taught to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Furthermore, Minister Farrakhan was divinely made to carry on this divine message throughout the world.
Certainly, this sounds bombastic, childish, crazy, overly simplistic, naive and unsophisticated in the extreme. However, that is what the scriptures say would be said of this truth.
But billions believe that at the end of this wicked world that God is to come and take over the rule of this world and destroy it. This will happen after He first gives everyone the opportunity to accept or reject His truth that He revealed to a special servant of His. The nature of the weather is a major factor forcing the realization of the Presence of God on an increasing number of people.
In a little magazine of some of his articles that was published in 1956, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad stated that Master Fard Muhammad alone taught him, and that He continues to reveal His truth to him, “although to some it is unbelievable; but search your Scriptures and you will find that they verify that which you read in this book–that which Allah (God) has revealed to me.” We can read his words in his books obtainable from The Final Call.
Now, when we say this verifies that, we are saying that what is doing the work of the verification is not necessarily dependent on that which verifies. This is not the general use of the word “verify.” However, when distinguished from its synonyms, verify implies: “The established correspondence of the actual facts or details to those that are given in an account or statement. When what is in question is a suspicion, a fear or a probability, it can be verified only in the result, event or fulfillment.” This definition, of the special implication of the word verify, is from Webster’s New Dictionary of Synonyms.
The God today verified the words of the prophets with His servant and by fulfilling them in our faces.
Certainly, many have said and written that they don’t like what Minister Farrakhan teaches. But they have not and cannot prove it to be false. When they try to explain these teachings, they must use outright lies or words that camouflage their dislike for God’s truths and the defective reasoning. When forced to explain the basis upon which they stand, in their attempt to refute Minister Farrakhan’s presentation of God’s truths from His Messiah, they cannot. Why? A lie can only be told, not explained!
“Such then is Allah, your true Lord. And what is there after the truth but error? How then are you turned away!” (Holy Qur’an10:32)
“Many of the people of the Book wish that they could turn you back into disbelievers after you have believed, out of envy from themselves, after truth has become manifest to them. But pardon and forgive, till Allah bring about His command. Surely Allah is Possessor of power over all things.” (Holy Qur’an 2:109)
What brings on the darkness that just precedes or introduces the darkest hour? Is it envy?
Surah 113:3 of the Holy Qur’an refers to this dark period as “the evil of intense darkness.” In this dark time, evil people will cast “evil suggestions in firm resolutions” as they never have before then. So will envy.
Minister Farrakhan’s Study Guide Number 13 teaches us to make Allah the center of our lives in this ever darkening time and for us to seek refuge in the Lord of men, the King of men, the God of men, “from the evil of the whisperings of the slinking (devil), who whispers into the hearts of men, from among the jinn and the men.” (Holy Qur’an 113)
Minister Farrakhan is, as many of us refer to him, a divine reminder. He is a divine reminder of divine warnings, such as the following prophecy of Jesus.
At that time, the kingdom of heaven will be like 10 virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps, but did not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps.
The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. At midnight, the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’
Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’
“‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’
“But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.
“Later the others also came. ‘Sir! Sir!’ they said. ‘Open the door for us!’ But he replied, ‘I tell you the truth, I don’t know you.’
“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.” (Matthew 25:1-13)
The Amplified Bible
verse 13 reads: “Watch therefore [give strict attention and be cautious and active], for you know neither the day nor the hour when the Son of Man will come.”
The Holy Qur’an has the following in it, which reminds me of the above passage of Matthew: “On that day thou wilt see the faithful men and the faithful women, their light gleaming before them and on their right hand. Good news for you this day!–Gardens wherein rivers flow, to abide therein! That is the grand achievement.
“On the day when the hypocrites, men and women, will say to those who believe: ‘Wait for us, that we may borrow from your light. It will be said: Turn back and seek a light. Then a wall, with a door in it, will be raised between them. Within it shall be mercy, and outside of its chastisement.
“They will cry out to them: Were we not with you? They will say: Yea, but you caused yourselves to fall into temptation, and you waited and doubted, and vain desires deceived you, till the threatened punishment of Allah came, and the arch-deceiver deceived you about Allah.” (57: 12-14)
Remember, Moses asked Allah to provide him with his brother, and for Allah to “send him with me as a helper to confirm me.” (Holy Qur’an 30:34)
Confirm “usually implies the removing of all doubts, as by an authoritative statement or by indisputable facts.”
Remember, among other facts, Minister Farrakhan heard his teacher’s voice in a manner that confirmed that he is physically alive!
