The Black ManBy the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad | Last updated: Feb 11, 2009 - 12:03:00 PM
According to the teachings to me of man’s histories by Allah (God) in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, praise is due to Him forever, The Great Mahdi and the Messiah that the world has been expecting to come for the last two thousand years, has come and is going about His work as has been predicted that He would do.
He taught me for three years (night and day) on the histories of the two people, Black and White.
What he taught me verifies the teachings of the Bible and Holy Qur’an (if rightly understood) of the two people, Black and White.
He said that there was no birth record of the Black Man and therefore none can say how old the Black Nation is. As far back as, He said, a record has been kept, it dates 76 trillion years. These years (76 trillion) were divided into periods of six trillion years beyond 66 trillion years which would make the said figure 76 be 78, instead of 76 trillion. I will not go into the finer details here. I hope to go into the details and analysis of our Lord’s (Master Fard Muhammad’s) teachings to me in a book entitled, “Black and White.”
Allah, in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are due forever, taught me that there are not any gods Who live forever. Their wisdom and work may live six thousand or twenty-five thousand years, but the actual individual may have died within a hundred or two hundred years, or the longest that we have a record of, around a thousand years.
There is no God Living Who was here in the Creation of the Universe, but They produce Gods from Them and Their Wisdom lives in us.
Human Beings are created according to the life of the Universe (planets). Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are due forever, taught me that the Original Designer and Maker of the Universe created it on time and there is an end to it.
Scientists have learned by study that everything we see that we call Universe is not everlasting. It is gradually decaying. The Bible and the Holy Qur’an both verify this decay of the Universe and that one day a Wiser God than Them all will exist in a new Universe. A new universe means that it will not be exactly like this one that we know. According to the hints of the Holy Qur’an, it will be a better one than we have. Naturally, after experimenting with a thing that has been made, we can improve on a new make of it.
The Black Man’s Gods, according to the history He taught me, have All been the Wisest. They made the White man after their order in wisdom except the knowledge of how to bring into reality and perfection their vision and idea of what they want to perceive equal to the Black Man’s Wisdom. This was kept back. They are forced to build their world on the basis of what they found in the Wisdom of Black Man.
The White man only made, formed, and put into service those things that met with the cravings and necessities of his people.
The White man was given the power of vision and different ways of life to enable him to build an unalike world from what we have had throughout the millions, billions, and trillions of years.
No God Who is going to rule the people of earth universally, as the White man has ruled for the past six thousand years, was to be given a history or knowledge of the God Who ruled the people before Him. This is in order to keep the Present God from patterning after the Former God and to force Him to use His Own Wisdom in making a world and not a world patterning after previous Wisdom of the Gods Before Him.
The White race did not get a chance to rule solely according to their wisdom because we were present and they patterned much of their world after what they saw of the Gods of the Black Man. This was due to the fact that the White race was made an enemy to the Black Man; therefore their time to deceive the Black Man was limited to a short span of six thousand years that are used by the Black Gods to rule.
The Wisdom of Each God, according to what Allah (God), in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are due forever, taught me, has a cycle of twenty-five thousand years.
Once every twenty-five thousand years, another God would be given a chance to show forth His Wisdom to the people.
This has been going on for many trillions of years, according to His teachings to me—at least since the deportation of moon and earth, according to the science of why we use a cycle of twenty-five thousand years. This is compared to the circumference of our earth at the equator, which is approximately twenty-five thousand miles. This is also compared with the rotation of our earth or the change at the poles which also makes a complete change once every twenty-five thousand years.
The White Race is an unusual people and their ideology is unusual. He has and was given the gift of a creative mind. To allow him to use his own ideas, the Black Man or Gods were put to sleep in order that the Wisdom of the Black Man did not interfere with what the White man is made for (to rule us under wickedness, enslavement, deceit, murder, and death for six thousand years).
The Black Man or gods of the Black Man are infinitely wise. They are being aroused to their Wisdom today to rule the people again throughout the ages of time.
The Present God’s (Master Fard Muhammad’s) Wisdom is infinite. No Scientist can see an end to This Man’s Wisdom coming in the future. That is why the Bible and the Holy Qur’an refer to Him as The Greatest and Wisest of Them All and say that He will set up a Kingdom (Civilization) that will live forever.
The Black Man in America is not an example of the Original Black Man; for he has been used by his slave masters for four centuries in what we call experimentation. Through the experimentation by the wicked slavemasters who were made without love or mercy for Black people, they have the Black Man in America before the world as a wrecked, robbed, and spoiled human being without knowledge of himself or anyone else. And he is used by the White man as a tool for whatever purpose the White man sees fit.
He is called a “Negro” by them. The name means something dead, lifeless, neutral (not that nor this).
They call the slave after their own names because he is the property of the slavemaster until he is redeemed—although he is a member of the Original Black Nation.
To restore him back to his people, he must be re-educated to give him the knowledge of self and the knowledge of those who deprived him of the knowledge of self.
This knowledge of self will unite him onto his own kind with love of self and kind.
