In the Holy Qur’an Maulana Muhammad Ali translation we can read:
4:81 And they say: Obedience. But when they go out from thy presence, a party of them plan by night doing otherwise than what thou sayest. And Allah writes down what they plan by night, so turn aside from them and trust in Allah. And Allah is sufficient as having charge of affairs. 6:123 And thus have We made in every town the leaders of its guilty ones, that they may make plans therein. And they plan not but against themselves, and they perceive not.
6:124 And when a message comes to them they say: We will not believe till we are given the like of that which Allah’s messengers are given. Allah best knows where to place His message. Humiliation from Allah and severe chastisement will surely befall the guilty for their planning.
7:99 Are they secure from Allah’s plan? But none feels secure from Allah’s plan except the people who perish.
7:145 And We ordained for him in the tablets admonition of every kind and clear explanation of all things. So take hold of them with firmness and enjoin thy people to take hold of what is best thereof. I shall show you the abode of the transgressors.
Are we living in the end of this world?
The word end means the furthest part or point of something; the furthest or most extreme part or point of something; the final part of a word, constituting a grammatical inflection or formative element; the final part of something, esp. a period of time, an activity, or a story.
I was reading a book when I came across the word watershed. A few days later, I was watching television and a Caucasian man used that same word. That same day, I decided to study that word deeper. After that I decided to use it in this article.
Watershed is an event or period marking a turning point in a course of action or state of affairs. To me, word “watershed,” also involves the Bible and the Holy Qur’an Now, two or three weeks ago, a series of events happened. You could read it in many newspapers or watch it on TV around the nation.
That involves the President of the United States of America and other people. This also involves the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. I cannot fully explain now, what I saw. But Allah Willing I’ll go into that next article.
In the book Closing The Gap we can see and read the words of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:
Minister Farrakhan: Now we’re in the time of the coming of God, the Most Merciful of those who show mercy. He comes now to retrieve what is lost and to bring it again to its once high position with Himself. He wants the Native American to go along with the original man to be reconciled again to that high position.
So, “with” means accompany us in the process of resurrection. “With,” means being in harmony with God and with us in our desire to be resurrected and reconciled to God Thus we can reclaim the original position that we, and they, had with God. “With” means to be in harmony, to be in agreement, to be in accord, to be “with.” With, here means, not just to go along for the ride, but be in absolute unity “with” the spirit of the journey.
Seventeen million “with” the two million Indians—well, if every man will go unto his own, and find refuge under his own vine and fig tree, then the question that must be asked is what is his own?
The Native American, what is his own? The Original Black man, what is his own? His own is Islam, the nature made by God in which He has created the human being. So that’s the vine and the fig tree that each of us will go to so that we will not only go to that vine and fig tree, we will go together to that vine and fig tree.
We’ll find joy and peace under that vine and fig tree, which is Islam, the nature of God and the nature in which He created both the children of the tribe of Shabazz and the Native people, who were exiled over 16,000 years ago to this part of our planet.
Brother Jabril: How does this apply to Mexicans and Latin Americans in general?
Minister Farrakhan: If you visit Mexico and Latin America you see remnants of the Spanish, the Portuguese, British and the Dutch, who have colonized and ruled in the western hemisphere, mixing their blood with the indigenous people, even as they mixed their blood with us, producing these various shades and colors.
As you go into Mexico you see the lighter Mexican, who are more akin to Spain, ruling those who are darker. In Brazil, you see the lighter Brazilian, ruling those more akin to the darker Portuguese.
The masses of Mexico are dark in hue. You can see that they are akin to the indigenous Native people who were exiled to this part of the hemisphere and went down from East Asia through Alaska, down the west coast and across Canada and to the east coast, then down into Mexico; down into Central America; down into South America.
Everywhere you look in there you find kinship to the Native People, who are called Indians. It is not that they are Indians, but they’re called that because poor Columbus wanted to find a new route to India. He ended up in the West and he had no better name to give the people than to call them after his misjudgment. But the Native people don’t accept his misjudgment.
They are the original people of the earth. So they have a part in this journey. The journey is for them as well as it is for us. This is why we see the Native people rising. We see the indigenous people of the western hemisphere rising against white supremacy. They are already showing they are with the movement.
The movement was created by the presence of God, and His revealed word. That started the movement. Now we are all moving toward a goal. Some know what the goal is and others don’t know what the goal is. The motion of the masses is pushing those who do not know the goal, along. Ultimately all will be with God and with the original man for they are the descendants of the original people of our planet.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said to me that his Teacher, Master Fard Muhammad, Whom he represented to us as God in person, revealed to him that the Native American people originated in Asia. They broke the law of Islam and were exiled to this part of the earth, which was and still is considered by God and the prophets a wilderness.
In Message To The Black Man and in the Muhammad Speaks and elsewhere, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad wrote much on the Native American and their rise to divine prominence, along with the Black man. He did much too. For example, he placed a part of his family in Mexico. He established at least five Temples, or places where his teachings were delivered in Mexico. More about this, in another forum.
More next issue, Allah willing.
