In the Holy Qur’an Surah 19:95 “And everyone of them will come to Him on the day of Resurrection, alone.” (Maulana Muhammad Ali translation.)
Are we in this time–the day of the resurrection?
The word resurrection means the action or fact of resurrecting or being resurrected; (the Resurrection); (in Christian belief) Christ’s rising from the dead; the Resurrection (in Christian belief) the rising of the dead at the Last Judgment.
We cannot know the above or see the above, in this article, without knowing and learning the truth from our hearts. Does this involve envy and the worst kind of jealousy?
In the creation of the universe, the very basis of evil that was not removed in the beginning, but where there was a very, very, very, very hint of it is now being removed forever. Now is the time, this “forever” that’s about to come in, and, will be just that, “forever.”
Basis means “the underlying support or foundation for an idea, argument, or process; the system or principles according to which an activity or process is carried on, the justification for or reasoning behind something.”
How do I know? This comes from the wisdom of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad who met The Supreme Being, September 1931.
We cannot know this or study this, without a very, very deep respect for Minister Farrakhan. We cannot even know the Honorable Elijah Muhammad without knowing him–Minister Farrakhan and his words, which have been made public all over the world, for many years for His purpose!
In one of my books, I wrote this “in the Bible, Isaiah 28:21 we can read: … He may do his work, His strange work; and bring to pass his act, His strange act.”
I’m using the word “He” in this article. In the Bible you can see “he.” Why did they use a small “h” instead of a big “H”?
What are the differences between the capital “H” and the small “h” in the thinking of those who made this Bible?
What does this means in the King James Bible and other Bibles that He–God will do a … strange unusual or surprising in a way that is unsettling or hard to understand” work?
What makes it strange for God to do His work and for others to understand Him–His work?
What makes it strange? Strange means “not previously visited, seen, or encountered; unfamiliar or alien, unaccustomed to or unfamiliar with.”
The word “situation” means “a set of circumstances in which one finds oneself.” I think all of us have gone through a series of circumstances in our lives.
Black people have been through all kinds of situations, here in America, from 1555 to now. I don’t know how many people that involves, but deeper is the truth of this and why? Does this involve both books the Holy Qur’an and the Bible? And does this involve God, Himself?
One day I had an opportunity in Phoenix, Arizona to talk with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. I was asking him a series of questions. At the end of that he said to me “I see you like to know the “whys” of God.” I made that public in articles and in some books.
Does those who were involved in the making of the Bible also making Black people into slaves at the same time?
I’ve studied the word plagiarism and those who do this. The word plagiarism means: “the practice of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own.”
It also mean in the thesaurus: “infringement of copyright, piracy, theft, stealing; informal cribbing.”
This also means secrecy (the action of keeping something secret or the state of being kept secret) it also means stealing from another person without consent or even their knowledge of it public or not.
Now, the envier wants both to acquire and see destroyed the possessions of the one that is envied. The envier’s thinking is such that he feels, for example, the envied one lost an eye that he (or she) is somehow advanced.
You cannot appease the envy of the envious person. Even if you show him, or her, greater kindness or remove that which the envy is directed, such as a possession, you will find the envy directed to some other possession, or to some good trait or quality you have.
It is an uncreative quality. It has no redeeming features. One writer stated that envy is:
“… insidious and secretive … burrowing away and undermining. Some of the most eminent people in the world are filled with envy because others have a little more glory than they.
You can see envy in the theatrical and film professions, among artists, writers, and politicians–even in the Church.”
I’ve heard the word envy first from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad some years, ago in 1956. Later on, I asked him about envy.
One has to undergo several experiences to see it first and then help others to see it. Of course, one has to stay alive. Smile. Because an envious person would kill you, so say the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
Envy is an emotion or a state of mind that hinders the good the envier could do for him or herself or the good for others. It is an obstacle that obstructs its owner in the way of self-benefit.
I wrote the below in 1987 about Minister Farrakhan in part:
Yesterday, February 27, 1983, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, the National Representative of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, delivered the greatest speech of his life. It will air on radio KCOH on Sunday from 6:15 to 6:45 A.M.
It is, in a sense, a continuation of a major aspect of his Saviour’s Day speech of 1981. It was an exceedingly clear presentation of the oneness of Christ and Muhammad, thus building on the base of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad chiefly through the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan (and others) to bring the Black man and woman into true union–which means making “Black” Christians true Christians and “Black” Muslims true Muslims, which ultimately mean the same thing!!!
No, there is no mistake in the above paragraph. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad is very much alive, well, and on his way back to do what is written of him in the Bible and Holy Qur’an.
By no means is Minister Farrakhan a “crazy man.” A crazy man could not have called together the exceedingly intelligent minds that he did. There were some of the finest brains (of Black people) in America in such areas as economics, the military, history, transportation, male-female relationships, communications, education, mental health, politics, law, housing, our elderly, religion, the international forum… .
The theme of the four-day conference revolved around the practical use of knowledge and the methods by which Black people can become free.
Dick Gregory told an audience, “We (Blacks) need help. I think you all are the group that’s going to do it. You have the discipline and the organization.” He also said that the Nation of Islam is “farthest ahead” and urged those who are not in it (in the formal sense) to at least consider “Muslim methodology.”
Dick Gregory was one of a dozen speakers and performers participating in an international arts concert.
I have much to offer about Minister Farrakhan’s exceedingly powerful speech–in terms of content and timing.
Why am I writing all of the above at this time and what is the different between a lie and a mistake?
More next issue, Allah Willing.
