“And for every nation We appointed acts of devotion that they might mention the name of Allah on what he has given them of the cattle quadrupeds. So your God is One God, therefore to Him should you submit. And give good news to the humble. Whose hearts tremble when Allah is mentioned, and who are patient in their afflictions, and who keep up prayer, and spend of what We have given them.” –Holy Qur’an Surah 22, verses 34-35
We have come to the end of the year 2008 and as we prepare to enter 2009, we must reflect on the great value of Truth and its consequences in all that we do and desire to accomplish of good. We must examine the root and foundation of truth in all our affairs. I thank Almighty God, Allah, who came in the Person of Master W. Fard Muhammad for His Coming and choosing our Lost and Found Nation of Islam in America coming under his Direct Guidance. He has chosen foremost to exalt in Divine Leadership among us, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, being directly schooled and taught by Him from the early ‘30s to 1975 covering 44 years and now extended to the Present Hour as the Messiah or Exalted Christ. We will come to know more of his power as the Exalted Christ and Messiah that the world has been looking for now extended to the heavens and the earth.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is being divinely guided by the Providential Hand of Almighty God, Allah, and his Christ to establish the Kingdom of God on Earth. In the study of Genghis Khan that we have before us and the rise of the Mongolian nation, we find unexpected parallels between their rise from obscurity into the light of world civilization to the unexpected rise of the Nation of Islam in America over the last 79 years. In the last several articles I have written on the subject of the first revelation of the Holy Qur’an revealed to Prophet Muhammad, May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him, entitled: “Al-Alaq: The Clot” and its connection to the divine creation from a clot of blood leading to the genetic lineage of Genghis Khan, the Mongolian Nation and the whole of humanity. We continue this study into the observation of other similarities that connect from this revelation giving rise to Genghis Khan and the Mongols to Prophet Muhammad and the Arab nation crossing racial and ethnic and national boundaries, extending from the East to the farthest Western horizon in one unified force field and foundation of truth that we are in reality one.
Author, Harold Lamb states in his remarkable book, “Genghis Khan: Emperor of all Men,” on page 33 an interesting observation, “In him (referring to Genghis Khan), were revealed the virtues and cruelties of that other nomad race, the Arabs.” Returning to the 96th Surah, verses 17-19 there is the mention of the council and the summoning of God’s braves of the army in these words: “Then let him summon his council, We will summon the braves of the army. Nay! Obey him not, but prostrate thyself and draw nigh (to Allah).”
These verses express the universal laws of creation placing the Almighty God, Himself, at the head of an army going into battle against His opponent. This may be compared historically to the council of the Mongols or circle of the Great Khans strategizing and planning war and announced social order called The Kuriltai or Assembly wherein Temujin was enthroned and named Genghis Khan in 1206 A.D. This name means “strong ruler or perhaps Oceanic Ruler” and then hence, Ruler of the World. He is about 40 years old when this happens as was the age of Muhammad when he received the first revelation of the Holy Qur’an in the cave of Hira 600 years earlier in 610 A.D.
Our Saviour, Master Fard Muhammad, comes in as a great warrior to do battle against his enemies to protect his stolen people. In the book, “Our Saviour Has Arrived,” by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, we read the following words on page 123, “The Wisdom, Idea, and Way of Thinking of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are due forever, is superior to any way of believing today. There is no one to hinder His Image or Thought for that which has not yet been conceived in our brain. He goes after the root of all things like our Black Father did in the beginning when He built the universe out of nothing. He is as One Sitting out in space with no material of space to Make something altogether new. He Goes after the Root in Making this New World of people.”
The spiritual keys of Genghis Khan’s thinking and methodology also compares to the root knowledge and science of universal creation and the extension of the heavens and the earth as the divine source of his power and greatness upholding the principles of divine unity and oneness of the creator. Quoting from National Geographic’s December 1996 article on Genghis Khan by Mike Edwards he quotes the words written by a Persian historian, ‘that Genghis was possessed of great energy, discernment, genius, and understanding, awe-inspiring, a bitter, just, resolute, and over thrower of enemies, intrepid sanguinary, and cruel.’ “A more-comprehensive epithet could not be written except to add that he bequeathed to his clan and unified Mongolia and the most powerful army in the world. His son and grandson would send that army surging anew into Russia and China, and even farther, while Mongolia creased the firmament of nations like a shooting star.” As we approach the new year 2009, what surprises await us standing in battle array in the Americas and around the world. What will be the divine forces driving us to unite under a New Banner of Peace and ”A New Beginning” lead by the prophetic hand of Providence Revealing a warrior king or chief appointed from on high Who is in Reality the Appearance of God Himself.
“And the camels, We have made them of the signs appointed by Allah for you—for you therein is much good. So mention the name of Allah on them standing in a row. Then when they fall down on their sides, eat of them and feed the contented one and the beggar. Thus have We made them subservient to you that you may be grateful. Not their flesh, nor their blood, reaches Allah, but to Him is acceptable observance of duty on your part. Thus has He made them subservient to you, that you may magnify Allah for guiding you aright. And give good news to those who do good (to others) Surely Allah defends those who believe. Surely Allah loves not anyone who is unfaithful, ungrateful.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 22, verses 36-37
