“Surely your Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six periods, and He is established on the Throne of Power. He makes the night cover the day, which it pursues incessantly. And (He created) the sun and the moon and the stars, made subservient by His command. Surely His is the creation and the command. Blessed is Allah, the Lord of the worlds! Call on your Lord humbly and in secret. Surely He loves not the transgressors.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 7, verses 54-55
The Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad are based upon the science of a New World Order of reality. His Teacher, Master W. Fard Muhammad, came to America from the Holy City of Mecca in Arabia in the final period of the one thousand year setback to Islam spread in the East. The spread of Islam was interfered with by the rise of the European nation in their quest to expand their base of operation and dominance from Europe to envelope the entire globe. Thus, the members of the Caucasian, European or White race were destined to conquer and rule all others on our planet for a brief period of time. They were taught a new political scheme and religious orientation to be the chief opponent to God and his true religion Islam. In this manner, they organized vehemently to force the entire world societies under their control. Both Bible and Holy Qur’an refer to a day with God as being equal to a thousand years. Thus, a sixth day period in the creation of the heavens and the earth is given in Genesis as the time that Satan and his world would come into prominence and be the leading force of opposition to God and the righteous for 6,000 years (a day equals to a thousand years).
The last one thousand years of Satan’s rule is calculated from the time of Prophet Muhammad’s (Peace Be Upon Him) history and the revelation of the Holy Qur’an in 610 A.D. extended to 300 years when Islam spread from Arabia to Jerusalem, North Africa, the Middle East, India, and China in the Far East including the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) in Southern Europe. The only barrier to Islam’s spread further West was the shore of the Atlantic Ocean. To keep Islam from further spreading in Europe, the Roman Papacy and the Vatican at that time organized the Crusades in their efforts to capture the Holy Land from the so-called infidels or Saracens (Muslims) who were in control of Jerusalem and its holy places, including the tomb of Jesus.
According to the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the Papacy or the extension of the Roman Empire, wanted to claim the body of Jesus which was guarded and protected by the Muslims. We are further taught the secret of Jesus’ actual entombment being placed in a special glass tube or encasement reflecting light in four directions making it impossible for anyone to know the exact spot where his body is laid. This reminds me of the adventurous novel and film by Dan Brown titled, “The DaVinci Code” and of “Angels and Demons” which has caused so much controversy today in the Vatican and among the Catholic Church on this subject surrounding Jesus and his Disciples.
When Islam dominated and conquered Spain with the invasion of the Moors for 800 years beginning in 711 A.D., the Catholic Church headed by the Papacy of Rome fought to subdue the Muslim control which ultimately led to the story of El Cid (Rodrigo DÃaz de Vivar) and the Reconquest of Spain under Catholic sovereignty. This period was followed by the expulsion of Muslims and Jews en masse from Spain fleeing into other countries of the Islamic world including Egypt, North Africa and Yemen in Saudi Arabia. This period was followed by the inquisition and the burning of great books, keeping them out of circulation and thus dumbing the people. In 1492, came Christopher Columbus and his discovery of the Americas for Europe and the Vatican. Though searching for the trade route to the East, which was hampered by the Muslim presence, somehow as providence would have it, he was brought by the trade winds to the West Indies (so named from India), and the Caribbean and the coastal shores of America. Here he encountered the native inhabitants also named Indians from the thought that he had landed in India.
Shortly thereafter began the TransAtlantic Slave Trade and the later conquest of the Western Hemisphere by Hernando Cortez, the conquerer of Mexico and Central America, followed by later expeditions and conquests by Pizarro in Peru, South America. It is the capture and enslavement of the Black original people, descendants of the Tribe of Shabazz from Africa to the Americas that forced our scientists to prepare for our delivery which was consummated in the birth of Master Fard Muhammad, the Great Mahdi, whose mission was to find and deliver us as the last stage in the fulfillment of prophecy to restore our Lost and Found people back to our original place at the top of civilization. We were to be given a greater Divine Knowledge of God and self than any other people had ever received before this time.
This current period of world history since the coming and finding of our lost members of the Tribe of Shabazz by the coming of Master W. Fard Muhammad is taking place in the end of the one thousand years’ setback to Islam’s spread. Now, Islam is continuing to shine its light of truth, freedom, justice and equality to capture the hearts of millions of people around the world, particularly in the West, Satan’s last stronghold. The Divine work and Mission of the Great Mahdi and his chosen servant, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his greatest help meet, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, is bringing a new era of enlightenment and unlimited progress that will continue to evolve into God’s new world kingdom on earth.
“And make not mischief in the earth after its reformation, and call on Him, fearing and hoping. Surely, the mercy of Allah is nigh to the doers of good. And He it is Who sends forth the winds bearing good news before His mercy; till, when they bear a laden cloud, We drive it to a dead land, then We send down water on it, then bring forth thereby fruits of all kinds. Thus do We bring forth the dead that you may be mindfull.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 7, verses 56-57
