O man, By the Quran, full of wisdom! Surely thou art one of the messengers, On a right way. A revelation of the Mighty, the Merciful, That thou mayest warn a people whose fathers were not warned, so they are heedless. Holy Quran, Surah 36, verses 1-6
Praying to Allah, is praying to the wholeness of the consciousness of the Supreme Being uniting us to His Proper Name, which is Allah, that covers the total sphere of our thinking. This spiritual expansion of consciousness represents the totality of boundless energy which reproduces itself over and over again, unceasingly, proving that all things, inclusive of all its individual parts, are one with Allah.
The nuclear and magnetic fields comprising our existence is compiled of atoms which are constantly revolving around the nucleus with her spinning electrons, protons and neutrons, invisible to the naked eye. This motion is binding us in its grasp like particles of cosmic dust in revolving spheres on this earthly plane which is connected to our universal spiral in space. The Name, Allah, completes our entire existence in which we oft times feel separated from our essence in the Divine Supreme Being until our capacity to love expands in perfect union with God.
This prayer and constant contemplation of God binds us to this reality and its reward of perpetual joy, peace of mind and happiness. The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad has taught us that when we feel this experience of joy and Divine Love, in many instances of our lives, this is the overwhelming joy, Divine Love and Happiness, we will feel continuously every moment of our lives in the Hereafter when Satans world and way of thinking is removed.
This is something to yearn for, to contemplate and to pray for. Is this not the goal of our whole total existence for which we have yearned to experience everyday of our lives to be in His August Presence and Majesty? Why are we unable to experience this kind of joyful bliss and happiness today? What has happened to us and to humanity that we have all deviated and fallen short of the Glory of God?
Is it because we have been separated from our Beloved God ever since we were born into the present world of iniquity, dominated by Satan and his wiles? We are living in a miserable state of existence as we aspire to get back to the path of Allah Divine Grace and Service. We must resist the Devil and he will flee from us. Our open enemy has become our inner foe called,Iblis, or the Devil (Shaitan), who is always whispering in our ears thoughts and ideas that are in direct opposition to the Path and Way of Allah Divine Guidance.
Therefore, in our daily prayers, we recite and repeat over and over again Bismillah Irahman Irahim, (In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful) to be reminded of our constant deviation from Gods Divine Guidance, Who is the only One worthy of Worship and Praise. No matter how hard we try to be upright, Iblis or Satan is winning converts by the billions every day, even though we perform the obligatory wudu or ritual cleansing with good intentions in preparation for our prayers during short intervals of the day, the inside is still corrupted by the touch of Satan; and we are not in tune with His True Reality. We doubt and procrastinate because we are inclined by the poverty of our hearts by denying Him.
We are surrounded in our environment on earth with filth and degradation everywhere we turn. We are wobbling in our orbit around the sun, passing through the mansions of the stars, planets and galaxies without remembrance of Allah. In our striving to be upright, in perfect alignment with Allah on a perpendicular or vertical position, we never reach our goal of perfection by renouncing the world of material existence under Satan’s rule.
The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad has taught us that in the Hereafter, we will be using less words and speech to express ourselves because it wont be necessary to try to explain everything. We will have a sense of knowing within. We will not be argumentative over the Truth when we know it and act upon the moral principles of that Truth, we will avoid discord and backbiting and offending one another.
We will learn to resolve our differences in a peaceful manner with harmony for the betterment of our society that will experience unlimited progress in the good things of life. Our hearts and genetic material will be altered, and our cells will be renewed and changed into the way and actual nature of righteousness by Almighty God, Allah.
In that changed nature, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad has taught us that we will no longer be able to sin. There will be no more sickness, illness, or strife on the other side. There will be no hospitals or drugs, nor any kind of abusive substances to destroy our bodies, minds and soul. We will only eat pure, uncontaminated foods and drinks, and we will not contaminate our minds with foolishness.
There will be no demons or satans stalking the land, walking to and fro, and up and down seeking whomsoever they may devour. We, who are students of the Divine Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and act upon them, are gradually evolving and growing into a new mind and a new growth and will experience a complete reversal of our decaying cells.
Satan is so envious of this Divine Truth of a new world of peace and righteousness that he is unable to enter that he is preparing night and day every evil weapon that he can to come against us. It is his desire to bring everyone down with him in the Final Judgment of this world.
Listen, and be warned by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan words that he is webcasting weekly on,The Time and What Must Be Done, to avoid falling victim to Satan false world of temptation, sport and play. Let us resolve to change the environmental hazards we are causing to ourselves and our families, and communities across the nation, and breathe new life that we may bring about a healing in the land.
Let us fast and pray to Almighty God, Allah that He will not forsake us, but Renew us from the inside out that our hearts may be found Faithful and True, and be transformed into the Mind of Christ. May we truly say, Get thee behind me, Satan. I have been lost and now found and reunited with my Beloved God, whose Proper Name is Allah.
Thou canst warn him only who follows the Reminder and fears the Beneficent in secret; so give him good news of forgiveness and a generous reward. Surely We give life to the dead, and We write down that which they send before and their footprints, and We record everything in a clear writing. Holy Quran, Surah 36, verses 11-12
