“And they ask thee about Dhu-I-qarnain. Say: I will recite to you an account of him. Truly We established him in the land and granted him means of access to everything; So he followed a course. Until, when he reached the setting-place of the sun, he found it going down into a black sea, and found by it a people. We said: O Dhu-I-qarnain, either punish them or do them a benefit. He said: As for him who is unjust, we shall chastise him, then he will be returned to his Lord, and He will chastise him with an exemplary chastisement.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 18, verses 83-87
According to the Holy Qur’an, the controversy centering on the birth of Yakub’s world as an opponent to God is first revealed in Surah 2 of the Holy Qur’an, verse 30. This controversy is revealed in the context of God talking to the angels concerning the making of a new man and people whose characteristics would be unlike that of the original inhabitants of the planet earth. The dialogue between God and His angels exposes the presence of Iblis who was hiding among the angels and ultimately manifested himself in opposition to God. He challenges God with an experimental plan in which he would lead all of humanity on a downhill course through the use of Tricknollegy, deceit, and fraud to turn the hearts of men away from the Divine Creator and would be under the influence of Satan’s dominion.
The angels knew only the good side of their nature and always manifested themselves in the working of good by the command of Almighty God. Their argument was that if such a people would be made to rule, they would only bring mischief and bloodshed that would come about on the planet under the influence of evil and wickedness. As we study world civilizations over the past 6,000 years, we must agree that this is Satan’s world of mass destruction and horror that has never been witnessed before. The terrible use of weapons and armaments down the ages, have moved all of humanity through an era of hell on earth of the greatest tribulation, creating war, mischief and blood shed that was predicted to take place.
There are two distinct groups and concentrations of the latter day European nations already discussed in previous articles, in this current series on Yakub’s Civilization, often identified in prophetic terms as the people of Gog and Magog. During the period of their confinement in the hills and cave sides of Europe, there was a strict barrier enforced in the area called Western Europe and the area of the hills in central Asia beginning with the demarcation lines of the Bosphorus Sea in the region of Turkey or ancient Anatolia. From that geographical location, we passed through the area of the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea and the Caucasus Mountains south of Russia.
As we pointed out in the previous articles, some of the inhabitants of this area pleaded for protection against the invasion of these ferocious war-like tribes entrapped in the hills. Thus, it fell to the lot of the great Persian Empire to take up the call to protect their borders as well from these invading tribes.
We will recall that I quoted in the last article that the Persian King named Darius the 1st instructed the people in that area to build a wall or barrier made of blocks of iron poured over with molten brass. According to some of the scholars, they believe this wall is identified with Alexander and is thus misnamed as Alexander’s Wall. In the Holy Qur’an, Surah 18, verse 98, it is revealed that this wall would one day crumble:
“He said: This is a mercy from my Lord, but when the promise of my Lord comes to pass He will crumble it, and the promise of my Lord is ever true.”
We read further in footnotes 1524 and 1525, pertaining to these verses as translated by Maulana Muhammad Ali, the following explanation from several hadiths (sayings) reported by the Prophet Muhammad (May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him.): “‘No one will have the power to fight against them’…According to another, ‘they will drink the water of the whole world’…According to a third, God said: ‘I have created some of My servants who no one can destroy but Myself.’ The ancestors of Gog and Magog are the Slav and Teutonic Races, and in the world domination of Gog and Magog is thus clearly hinted the domination of the European National over the whole world, and the prophecy has thus found fulfillment in our days.”
Without the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad on Yakub’s civilization, its origin and time line in world history and its fulfillment in the Divine Scriptures of Bible and Holy Qur’an, we would never have been able to recognize its application to the true history of European and world history with such accuracy of Divine Truth. Without the Divine Truth, we would not be able to fill in the missing gap in the chronology of Yakub’s world and that of global history combined.
The two branches of the European nations symbolized in prophecy as the Gog and Magog tribes, whose effigies remain as a sign in Guild Hall in London, would remain a secret to us up until this day of their dominant world power with America taking the lead. In our examination of this history, we are able to recognize the distinctive manner in which they developed from bestiality in the caves and hillsides, into the modern age of technology, passing through the ages of metallurgy from beginning with the Bronze Age, 4,000 B.C. to the Iron Age, approximately 1,000 B.C., to the present industrialization in the use of steel as weapons to use in their great war machines reflected in World War I and World War II, building into the Space Age, focusing on NASA’s shuttle probes and space stations and planetary explorations, all in preparation for the final great battle in the sky.
Current research of America’s military bases is engaging many questions from the American public and the world over as to the purpose of these Top Secret investigations. Information acquired from the activities at Site 51 Installation, Groom Lake, Nevada, reveals that Groom Lake has hosted flight testing of the Lockheed U-2, the SR-71 Blackbird, the S-117 Stealth Fighter, Northrop’s B-2 Stealth Bomber, the mysterious Aurora Project, and possibly even alien spacecraft. The buildup to the Final War is progressively heightening and let the public beware that the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is the only place of refuge in this world of darkness and gloom.
“And as for him who believes and does good, for him is a good reward, and We shall speak to him an easy word of Our command. Then he followed a course. Until, when he reached the (land of) the rising sun, he found it rising on a people to whom We had given no shelter from it–So it was. And We had full knowledge of what he had. Then he followed a course. Until, when he reached (a place) between the two mountains, he found on that side of them a people who could hardly understand a word.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 18, verses 88-93
