It is foolishness to deny truth, while admitting ignoranceBy Jabril Muhammad | Last updated: Jan 23, 2012 - 11:28:09 PM
I was in the process of writing my next article, (which you can read it now) but I stopped! I read on the 9th of this month (January) in our newspaper, The Final Call that contained photographs that is in our newspaper.
I stared at the front cover of The Final Call. I’d read our newspaper some weeks ago. But this time it had a profound impact on me. It reminded me of what the Honorable Elijah Muhammad told me many years ago.
Now, it jumped at me, right in my face!
Then I stopped and sat down to think deeper. And then I continued to write my article.
Then I set my article aside, and did other things. Some days later I was wiped out, but not 100%.
The above involves prophecies in the Bible and Holy Qur’an. That involves the word “history.” This involves all kinds of people living at the end of time—all kinds of people—some are liars and some are truthful.
I’ve heard the Honorable Elijah Muhammad speak publicly about this … .
Go over carefully Volume numbers 13 and 14 of our newspaper The Final Call. And then get Mother Tynnetta Muhammad’s DVD titled; The Tenth System: THE BRAIN and listen to her reaction to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
The most intelligent men, fully aware of the achievements and contributions of “science,” were and are believers in the Divine Supreme Being with all that such belief implies.
The fact is that many Black people who dislike “religion” really dislike Christianity and its unnatural doctrines. They often prove to know little or nothing about Islam when they say they don’t like “religion.” They just unthinkingly lump Islam with Christianity without knowledge.
I must say this now, that Minister Farrakhan has the power and he did it connects science and religion—Christianity—the truth that was revealed to him by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Go over this paragraph carefully.
There are people who tell you they are realists, who say, “I don’t believe in anything I can’t see.” Who can see sound? Who can see what the nose smells? Who denies that people become aware of different things through different senses? For instance, electricity cannot be seen.
But we use it every time we turn on the radio; the television; use the phone, or turn on a light bulb. Furthermore, who has ever put his physical hand on a law of nature, such as the law of gravity? But if you deny its existence and step out of a window on the 10th floor of some building, you will be in big trouble.
There are Black people who claim to be realists, who will admit the above, yet deny the existence of any wisdom higher than what can be learned in the white man’s colleges and universities.
They confess that they do not know everything and that white people do not have a monopoly on wisdom today. Still, they speak and write as though there is no greater knowledge beyond what they have gained, or are studying, that comes from white people. They are like those whom the Holy Qur’an condemns when they say:
Our hearts are repositories.(2:88)
They feel that their knowledge is sufficient. They are puffed up over what they have learned, and they do not see or feel the need for information from any source they think is “beneath” them.
Such proud people regard the truth of Allah as “beneath” them, or at least, irrelevant to the real problems of today. Such people will usually tell you that “science” deals only with perceptible and verifiable realities.
I wrote this paragraph years ago but you could see many people are changing their thinking. Now, this involves two facts: One is Minister Farrakhan spreading the truth all over the planet. Two: that involves many changes in every city and in every country or more!
Therefore, the findings of “science” are superior to the results of “religion,” which they say concerns that which cannot be demonstrated. Is this so? Is it not true that the scientists of this world depend on the unseen universal reign of law that is inherent in everything everywhere?
Is not their ability to reason rooted in the belief, if not the conviction, of the rationality of existence, which is grounded in that which they cannot see with the physical eye?
What prevents us from believing that there may be dimensions of existence transcending the level we are now aware of? Nevertheless, many Black people deny that there is a higher level of perception than what they are on.
This is pathetic! This is a shame!
We are all acquainted with the fact that existence is graded. That is, we observe and experience, matter (stone, sand etc.), life (insects, plants etc.), animal life (dogs, camels, etc. ) and humans.
We also know that the human mind has grades. There is nothing irrational in believing that there are realms, or mental levels, beyond the experience most of us live on.
The most intelligent men, fully aware of the achievements and contributions of “science,” were and are, believers in the Divine Supreme Being, with all that such belief implies.
I wrote this many years ago: The fact is that many Black people who dislike “religion” really dislike Christianity and its unnatural doctrines. They often prove to know little or nothing about Islam when they say they don’t like “religion.” They just unthinkingly lump Islam with Christianity without knowledge.
It is foolishness to deny the truth of something while admitting ignorance of it. It is foolishness to raise one’s ignorance to the level of wisdom. For instance, when a person says, “I don’t know God and I doubt that anyone else does. Therefore, God does not exist.” This person has raised his “don’t know” to a positive “know.”
This is foolishness!
More next issue, Allah willing.
