Submit To Allah (God) and Fear NotBy The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad | Last updated: Mar 9, 2004 - 11:58:00 PM
That and that alone is Salvation according to the Holy Qur’an. Fear is the number one enemy that is blocking progress and success from coming to the so-called Negroes of America. This fear causes them to grieve. The whole world knows the poor so-called Negroes of America have suffered and still suffer more grief and sorrow than any people on the earth! This fear is the fear of the slavemasters (White man) and what the slavemasters dislike. Let the so-called Negroes submit to Allah (God) and they will not fear anymore, nor will they grieve. As it is written: "The fear of man bringeth a snare." (Proverbs:29). It has surely snared the so-called Negroes.
The Lord of the world’s Finder of we, the lost members of the Asiatic Black Nation for 400 years, said that the slavemasters put fear in our Fathers when they were babies. Allah is the only one that can remove this fear from us, but he will not remove it from us until we submit to His will, not our will, and fear Him and Him alone. Then, as it is written, "And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from sorrow and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve." (Isaiah 14:3). There are so many places that I could point out in the Bible and Holy Qur’an that warn us of fearing our enemies above or equal to the fear of Allah (God). It is a fool who has greater fear of the devils (White man) than Allah who has the power to destroy the devils and their followers (Revelation 21:8; Holy Qur’an 7:18 and 15:43).
We must remember that if Is-lam means "entire submis-sion to the will of Allah," that and that alone is the True religion of Allah. Do not you and your religious teachers and the Prophets of old teach that the only way to receive God’s help or Guidance is to submit to His will!–then WHY NOT ISLAM! It (Islam) is the true religion of Allah and the ONLY way to success. (Reprinted from "Message to the Blackman," 1965.)
