[Editor’s Note: This article is a reprint that was published online on September 6, 2010; and The Final Call will continue to publish articles by our beloved brother and friend, Minister Jabril Muhammad.]

Last week, I was so blessed to see and hear, of some of the words and work of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, and some who bore witness of him. I’m bearing witness, in this short article, to the truth and value of his work and the response to him, for all who follow him and others who will follow him.

I could not get to those events in Chicago, in person, but I hope you will read every word in The Final Call that will bear witness to what he did and is doing. That work can help all to see the most obvious reason why God produced Minister Farrakhan, for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and then what he has done and what he’s doing. This is a big subject, but it is worth our time to really study it 100%. It can open our minds more to see much more of the relationship between Moses and Aaron and why that is put in the scriptures, Bible and Holy Qu-ran for the world to study–past and present.

I’m writing this article on Friday, August 26, 2010. That series of events should appear in The Final Call. I must write this article so you can see the context in which I’m writing it.


I’m thinking, why all of us, should take the time to study the most basic and clear reason (or obvious) reason why Allah gave Moses to Aaron? I’m not stating here the other reasons why God did that. But, if you can see that Moses and Aaron were signs of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Minister Farrakhan then you are on your way to see much more, easily, then we can see much more.

The word “context” is a word/idea for us to see and use every day.

These recent events that just happened, in Chicago, reminded me of three “events” containing universal principles applicable to every one on earth.

I was there in Chicago, when the Honorable Elijah Muhammad spoke to us about some evil people, who threw a donkey into a pit. It was not a physical event that he was telling us about.

They started throwing stones at the donkey. They were trying to get rid of it 100%. Despite the pain, the donkey endured.

Eventually, the wicked filled the pit with their stones. Then the donkey walked out of the pit.

Then he said, “Whenever you want to do good in this old wicked world, you are always tried to see if you really want to do it.”

This next event was also spoken by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, in what was then called, Muhammad Temple #2, in Chicago, Illinois, in the spring of 1960.

I was among those in the audience when he spoke these insightful words. These words express a profound principle, rooted in the law of the creation of the first life and life since then.

It was a Sunday, when the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was teaching on the subject: “The Lost Sheep.”

At the outset, he told us not to respond to any points by clapping and the like, since he was going to turn on his tape recorder at some point for the radio program. He intended that section of his speech to be aired later on his radio program.

Now, he got into it. It was deep, beautiful and inspiring. At a certain moment he reached down to turn on the tape recorder. Somehow the tape got tangled up. He looked so disgusted. Brother John Ali, the then National Secretary, came to his rescue.

As he was fixing the problem, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said these words, “Whenever you want to do good in this old wicked world, you are always tried to see if you really want to do it.”

If you have really heard Minister Farrakhan, you have heard him teach this same subject. His words contained wonderful insights into this serious subject. This subject involves the laws of success, including the need for the “difficulty factors.”

Everyone today is doing whatever they are doing under difficulty factors or circumstances. This is due to the very unique nature of these times, which is that great time of trouble, mentioned in the twelfth chapter of the book of Daniel.

It reads: “At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will rise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people–everyone whose name is found written in the book–will be delivered.

“Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.

“But you, Daniel, close up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.”

I’ve quoted from the King James Bible Daniel 12:1.

This is connected to a letter the Honorable Elijah Muhammad wrote me, in response to a question I asked him. I asked a question of Minister Farrakhan and his response in connection with this.

Both the letter from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Minister Farrakhan’s response are both contained in the book, Is It Possible That The Honorable Elijah Muhammad Is Still Physically Alive???

Many factors and forces conspire to hinder, or are even aimed at destroying the efforts intended to produce good; especially that good which fulfills the purpose for which Master Fard Muhammad visited America. The greater the good one seeks to do, the greater the trials one must endure.

The more worthy the goal of the good one seeks to do, the greater the effort one must put forth to succeed in the doing of that good. This is part of the plan of Allah, however, as such efforts works to improve the worker of good.

It is easy to see the application of all of the above in the life and mission of Minister Farrakhan, who, in my view, has been divinely made an example of success for us all. His success has happened and is occurring according to the comprehensive law, based on the foundational principle of divine creation.

More next issue, Allah willing.
