And when We pointed to Abraham the place of the House, saying: Associate naught with Me, and purify My House for those who make circuits and stand to pray and bow and prostrate themselves. And proclaim to men the Pilgrimage: they will come to thee on foot and on every lean camel, coming from every remote path. -Holy Qur’an, Surah 22, verses 26-27
The Bible is a script of writing revealed in accordance with our Asiatic Calendar history that is recorded by our Nation’s scientists transcribed in a 25,000 year period of time. When it is time for a certain portion of that history to be revealed, it becomes a scripture or revelation of prophesies handed down called Bible or Holy Qur’an, teaches the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Both of these scriptures now revealed through God’s Chosen Servants called Prophets or Messengers have focused on a timeline of prophetic history covering a period of 6,000 years. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has taught us that our present world dominated by the White man or race came in a vacuum of our history. To understand the meaning of what a vacuum coming in our history that produced the White race of Yakub’s civilization will require a scientific and mathematical approach to reach a clearer and better understanding of divine scriptures.
We might explain it briefly as being a void or absence in space time caused by some climatic or cataclysmic change or geological upheaval that alters the typography of our continental land mass, submerging some parts of our planet and leaving other parts remaining below sea level and leaving other parts remaining. Within this geological period, a scientist of our nation was born named Yakub, who was predicted by our 24 scientists, at the beginning of this last 25,000 year cycle or calendar history. Thus, civilization as we knew it was disrupted leaving only signs or wonders for us to study today along with fragmented remains of ancient cultures.
Writing in “Our Saviour Has Arrived,” beginning with page 97, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad explains the phenomenon that reveals this calendar history of what was seen by our scientists coming in this vacuum and the period of time that this universal change in the civilization would endure:
“No God Who is going to rule the people of earth universally, as the White man has ruled for the past six thousand years, was to be given a history or knowledge of the God Who ruled the people before Him. This is in order to keep the Present God from patterning after the Former God and to force Him to use His Own Wisdom in making a world and not a world patterning after previous Wisdom of the Gods Before Him.
The White race did not get a chance to rule solely according to their wisdom because we were present and they patterned much of their world after what they saw of the Gods of the Black Man. This was due to the fact that the White race was made an enemy to the Black Man; therefore their time to deceive the Black man was limited to a short span of six thousand years that are used by the Black Gods to rule. The Wisdom Of Each God according to what Allah (God), in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are due forever, taught me, has a cycle of twenty-five thousand years. Once every twenty-five thousand years, another God would be given a chance to show forth His Wisdom to the people.”
In order for us to read Bible and Holy Qur’an or any divine scripture, we must become acquainted with the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad passed down from his master teacher W.F. Muhammad in order for our eyes to be opened and to read the scriptures with a more comprehensive knowledge, this knowledge covers the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and the entirety of 114 chapters of the Holy Qur’an.
Our worlds and way of thinking of the Gods who ruled these 25,000 year periods of history had to be silenced in order for this present world of thought which was introduced to deceive the masses of the people throughout our planet. We might ask why was it necessary to bring in Yakub’s civilization which was counter to or the anti-thesis of a righteous rule which we had formerly always practiced. It was to remove from the Original Black man the dark side of his nature that had to be made manifest as an opponent to perfect our wisdom, by knowing both good and evil.
So a world of wickedness and evil has become manifest revealing that which we did not know was hidden within us. Following this period in the disruption of our history, our nation gave birth to a champion and an All-Powerful God who has mastered the tricknollegy of Yakub’s world by revealing all truth knocking out the brains of falsehood. This Great Champion of Truth, Freedom, Justice and Equality is now in the world and has come to us in the person of Master W. F. Muhammad, the Great Mahdi. This struggle between the forces of good and evil (The Gods at War) is pointed out in Genesis, Chapter 32, verses 24-28 in the story of Jacob wrestling with the Angel until he was renamed Israel.
In our Nation’s Sacred Book of Writings, (Lessons) called the Supreme Wisdom, we are given the following question and answer (Lesson No. 1: Q. & Ans. 38). “Q: Then 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.”
“Then let them accomplish their needful acts of cleansing, and let them fulfill their vows and go round the Ancient House.” -Holy Qur’an, Surah 22, verse 29
