Truth. It seems like such a simple word and such a simple concept. Webster’s defines truth as “the body of real things, events, and facts; the state of being the case; often capitalized (means) a transcendent fundamental or spiritual reality; a judgment, proposition, or idea that is true or accepted as true; the body of true statements and propositions.”

The definition is interesting but inadequate when we consider that truth is the nature of the universe and falsehood in a universe of truth can have no perpetuity, though it may seem to win in a given time, especially in the current world.

But ultimately as the Holy Qur’an instructs us, Chapter 17, Verse 81, “And say: The truth has come and falsehood vanished. Surely falsehood is ever bound to vanish.”

The current world ruled by Satan is based on lies and is falling apart before our very eyes. As systems and leaders fail, we see growing discord and confusion amid misinformation, disinformation, and mass manipulation. Today, however, even the master manipulators are losing and being exposed. This is the time of the Coming of God and the triumph of divine truth.


Those who have delighted in confusing others find themselves drowning in their own sea of confusion.

With divine revelation of invincible truth brought by the Great Mahdi Master Fard Muhammad, which is what the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad represent, the bright light of day has come to banish a long, dark spiritual night.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad writes in “The Sure Truth,” published in 1974 in His outstanding book, “Our Saviour Has Arrived,” about Chapter 69 in the Holy Qur’an, its meaning and its relevance to us now.

“This Chapter is warning the people in the time of the Resurrection of the mentally dead of what happened in the histories of former people who were doomed to destruction and how they reacted to the truth and warning and how they called the truth of their approaching doom a lie.

This Chapter is warning the people of the calamities that are now besetting America and Europe; the sure truth that they are heading for their doom like Ad and Thamud who gave the truth a lie and were overtaken by Allah’s Judgment of a violent wind roaring seven days and eight nights. This was the kind of destruction that Allah destroyed them with,” He writes.

“The Black Man in America is now suffering under the falsehood of his enemies, while truth is being sounded in his ears. He sees the evidence of it with his eyes; yet he would like it a lie. The main warning of the Holy Qur’an to those who take the truth for a lie and the lie for the truth is that they are subject to the same type of Judgment that these former opponents of Allah were subjected to,” the Honorable Elijah Muhammad warns.

“The enemy is ever seeking a way to oppose the truth and take you and me to their doom if we are foolish enough to give a lie to the truth.”

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has taught us that truth is so precious that it may call for the sacrifice of life to protect it versus capitulating, lying and hiding the truth which damns a people walking in darkness to destruction.

But the truth, especially in this modern time, must have a vehicle on which it rides into the hearts, minds and souls of men and women.

The Final Call Newspaper is that vehicle that presents, preserves and protects the truth. So, no matter what changes take place in the industry, there is a major place and purpose for us. While others are shutting down and departing the scene, this must be the day of our continued rise.

What we as Muslims have been given about the time and what must be done and the truth of the reality of God and the devil and the Judgment of God on America and the world is divine light.

Others don’t have the knowledge we have been blessed with nor the mission of resurrecting our people and eventually all of humanity. We need not fear for the future so long as we fulfil our purpose.

When we are in the streets, highways and byways of this country and other places around the world, we are little messengers and carriers of truth. To interact with a member of the Fruit of Islam (F.O.I.), the men of the Nation of Islam, is to connect with one coming from under the blinding touch of Satan and it is a powerful experience. It awes, inspires and breathes life back into our mentally dead people.

We must use all means and methods, right down to the modern time, to connect with people in the digital world, via social media, video, audio, chat apps, radio and TV to spread the truth. We must go where our people are and deliver the truth that we might deliver the millions spoken of in our Lessons to the Lamb of God.

This is our day; this is our time. And as we deliver The Final Call to our people, we save ourselves and fulfill our divine destiny. Nothing is more precious than truth. We must continue to spread it.
