The prophets demonstrated how family life should be, in terms of Allah’s will. They demonstrated the proper treatment of the women, the children, as well as how to make the weak strong and the poor rich and rich good.
A somewhat deeper examination of the factors leading to the wretched state of the woman and children in each of the societies in which Allah raised prophets would show what follows.
When the prophets began their work, the men were vain, egotistical, arrogant and tyrannical. They fought often and killed each other for vainglorious reasons. Those who were somewhat better were persecuted and murdered. These factors resulted in the reduction of the number of men for women to marry.Wicked attitudes and practices, in which women and children were repeatedly victimized, lead to ever worsening societies, based on the ever-worsening quality of family life.
Their non-stop warring against each other, produced further male/female imbalances both in terms of the numerical factor as well as the quality of men willing to properly treat women and children. The cyclical nature of the mistreatment of women, by men, produced ever more wicked generations of children and on it went until Allah would raise a prophet to, in effect, keep them in existence until their time expired.
The problems involving the mistreatment of women, were and could only be solved through their acceptance of Allah’s guidance through the prophets who were raised among them. Of course, this world was made to reject Allah, His representatives and whatever came from Him.
The effect of the work of Allah’s prophets were short lived, however, due to the fact that the wicked were granted authority, by Allah, to rule according to the principles of wickedness, filth, corruption and depravity for a certain time–6,000 years.
Therefore, we know little of Allah’s prophets and their examples and teachings really don’t have the force of those seen in this word as heroes and role models for the people of today. Evil has now reached its zenith. Their spirit to reject Allah is now at its strongest.
Historically, how were these male/female imbalances addressed by Allah through the wisdom by which He guided His prophets which was manifested in their practice? In particular, how did the prophets relate to women and what kind of family life did Allah guide them to produce, which was better than that which existed when they began their work?
Since He never says or does anything other from the best of reasons, which serve the best of purposes, what were they? What bearing does this little area of study have on the improvement of Black family life, generally, and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in particular?
This is the end of this wicked world’s time to continue as a ruling power over the Original people of the earth. Its purpose has been served. On the one hand this world is dying its natural death. On the other hand it was time for Master Fard Muhammad to come to restore the Original Nation into power to rule forever. Therefore, the expected new day has arrived.
The complete manifestation of all that Yakub had in mind, in bringing forth that which lay dormant within us has taken place. All of what Allah had in mind in allowing Yakub to do as he did, has also been made manifested.
Master Fard Muhammad has made all of this known to us through the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, starting in 1931. He revived His own word through the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, starting in 1977.
We are also at the end of the time of the manifestation of everything that was inherent in the first life–the First Black Man or God–who burst forth in space, according to the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, which he was taught by his Teacher, Master Fard Muhammad. And, in addition, we have been brought into the knowledge of the Original Scientists or Gods, Who came after Him (the First One).
So, we’re at the end of the time of all things–from the very beginning of time up to this time, when Master Fard Muhammad is present.
This is the time of (as it is written that Jesus called it) “the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones … and every one who has forsaken” … whatever you have given up, “for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundred fold, and shall inherit everlasting life.” (Matthew 19:28, 29)
The above has everything to do with the solution or the resolution of all of the imbalances, in short, all of the problems of and between the Black man and woman here in America, henceforth, now and forevermore.
Our reaction to the recent attacks of the most wicked of the wicked, who have hid behind a shield no stronger than a spider’s web; the spiritual victory we’ve gained over them, is but another sign of the truth we’ve been blessed to learn.
Consider, now, these words given to me, in 1967, by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad for This Is The One. They indicate that we are now living in the time of “the regeneration.”
These words appear on pages 127-8 of the 3rd edition of This is The One and form at least one way in which he presented his comprehensive statement of Master Fard Muhammad’s program; His ultimate aim and purpose, now and for tomorrow. It is:
“Master Fard Muhammad aims to raise the Lost-Found (so-called Negro) into the knowledge and wisdom–the very ideas–of the Gods of the past.
“He also aims presently, to raise His people into His own ideas, in Himself, that the scriptures may be fulfilled: that those to whom He reveals Himself become the sons (and the daughters) of God–sons and daughters in the wisdom of God.
“He aims not only to reveal His ideas for the present creation of the universe, but also to give to man the nature and the creative wisdom to produce creative ideas as The Father of Civilization. This is what was prophesied: that God would make man like Himself.
“He aims to make The Nation of Righteousness, who will rule in the Hereafter, with the potential knowledge of producing and bringing into action, or existence, that which He has been able to produce. We call this ‘ideas.’
“He aims to make each one into a God.”
God Himself is now making Gods and Goddesses of each one of us, who are believers–with others yet to come–to live and rule forever by His love, wisdom and power.
We are indeed going from the worst possible state of condition–except for one state–in creation, to the top or head of the universe and all within it.
Can this be done without His wisdom and guidance on the Black male/female problem we’re facing? No!
Master Fard Muhammad desires for us to enjoy His life–to live as He does–after we had fallen 50,000 years ago to absolute zero, as we have during the past 400 plus years.
More next issue, Allah willing.
