“And those who look not for meeting with Us, say: Why have not angels been sent down to us, or (why) do we not see our Lord? Indeed they are too proud of themselves and revolt in great revolt. On the day when they will see the angels, there will be no good news for the guilty, and they will say: Let there be a strong barrier! And We shall turn to the work they have done, so We shall render it as scattered motes.”–Holy Qur’an, Surah 25, verses 21-23
The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad always encouraged his followers to ask questions and to learn all about ourselves which is the essence of everything in Allah’s Divine Creation. He would often say to us that Allah, God, is a Wise God coming to us asking questions. This methodology teaches us not to take anything on face value, but to probe into the deepest secrets of life and the life force. We are programmed not to fear the unexpected and to accept the mental attitude that nothing is impossible.
We must go as far as our mind and memory can take us into the boundless energy of space time. Just as the universe is constantly expanding and pulling up objects into our view, so do our minds operate in darkness bringing up the light of the hithertofore unknown. The Nation of Islam was founded upon the Divine Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad with the capacity for us to be nurtured into the gods that we once were from the beginning of time. The present world order is founded upon false teachings about the reality of God; and He is most often explained as a Mystery or a Spirit without form or void and cannot be seen by the physical eye. But this cannot hold true today.
He, Allah, has come in Person and is seen and known in the heavens above and in the earth below as the “All Eye Seeing,” who always has been and always will be! The Divine Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad lays the basis for our work today, bringing us out of darkness and ignorant belief systems about God into the ultimate Truth of New Knowledge. Our Nation’s Assignment of the Supreme Wisdom Lessons given to us to study by the Founder, the Great Mahdi, and God In Person, Master Fard Muhammad, opens the door leading us into realms of worlds within worlds of Creation, lifting us outside of the frail limitations of Yacob’s world of falsehood and illusion.
All the previous worlds that came to power before this day were permitted by Allah to manifest the utmost extent of their thought systems and thought experimentations to the capacity of the mind to manifest that thought form or idea that had never been known before. This knowledge was held within the circle of the Wisdom of the Gods in our onward evolution to know everything that is in existence. But never before today has our nation been tried with a totally unlike world in opposition to God until Yacob’s Civilization which has made the practice of evil the very foundation of their existence to the extent to which we are now facing total annihilation.
He, Allah, permitted Yacob’s contrary world to come into existence to perfect our ultimate evolution into an Eternal Paradise, a world of longevity of life, peace and happiness. We had to be tried with the utmost of evil that had never been practiced before in order to get rid of the trouble that was causing us problems in the Original Man’s germ of life.
We are asked the question in Lesson Number 2, Question and Answer Number 38—“Why did God make Devil? ANS:—To show forth HIS Power–that HE is All-Wise and Righteous. That HE could make a Devil, which is weak and wicked, and give the Devil Power to rule the Earth for 6,000 years and then Destroy the Devil in one day without falling a victim to the Devil’s Civilization. Otherwise to show and prove that Allah is the God—Always has been and always will be.”
We have come to the exhaustion of these long periods of experimentation on the Original Man and people striving to perfect the material essence of God Himself. Now, the Perfect has come and it is contained in the Mind and Thinking of God Who came in the Person of Master W. Fard Muhammad and in the Thinking and Mind of his Exalted Christ, Messiah, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, being fully represented by Allah’s Servant in our midst, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
On June 19th of this year, I was blessed to be among those who were present at the 50th Honorary Recognition of my eldest son, Ishmael Muhammad and the anniversary of his birth into the Divine Work and the Mission of his father, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, and as a helper and assistant to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. I never expected to be so honored by this young generation of followers, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren as I was on that day in the Remembrance of Allah. I thank Allah for all my four children and extended family of grandchildren and great grandchildren with more on the way.
What a great honorary moment in my life to be shared with so many beautiful believing families and friends. The perfect moment came when we were joined by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and his beautiful wife, Mother Khadijah Farrakhan, members of their family hosted by Brother Mustapha Farrakhan, and his wife, Sister Karen Farrakhan, in the humble and loving spirit of their hospitality with guests numbering nearly 100 persons from the laboring staff and personnel and extended family and other surprise visitors. There were many defining circumstances attendant to my son’s birth, which I shared in part with everyone that I will expound on at a later time. Let it suffice for me to say at this moment that he was born on the summer solstice, 50 years ago, and in the midst of the Native American and Hispanic population of America’s Southwest in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I dreamed I was to give birth to a boy without the use of ultrasound, and I was given his birth name, Ishmael, while he was yet in my womb.
Normally, we are not enjoined to celebrate birthdays because they accent the aging process. According to the Divine Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, Allah came to reverse the aging process and not to emphasize age in our evolution to be ever young. The idea of getting older makes you think older as opposed to getting younger because you are what you think.
Every time we say, “How old are you,” we are emphasizing the aging process and not the youthful, blissful days of our lives. We must celebrate our birth into the Work and Mission of our Nation’s Resurrection into the New Life of the Hereafter in which we will be rejuvenated and made forever young.
May Allah continue to bless and protect our families as we grow into the light of understanding of our New World and Kingdom of God that is prepared as a bride for the bride groom; and may we experience, from this day forward, the renewal of our minds into the mind of God and His Christ.
“The owners of the Garden will on that day be in a better abiding place and a fairer resting-place. And on the day when the heaven bursts asunder with clouds, and the angels are sent down, as they are sent. The kingdom on that day rightly belongs to the Beneficent, and it will be a hard day for the disbelievers.”—Holy Qur’an, Surah 25, verses 24-26
