In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.
Greetings to you. I am Minister Louis Farrakhan, National Representative of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, that Great Preacher of Freedom, Justice and Equality to the Black man and woman of America and the Western hemisphere, and the Aboriginal People of the Earth—The Eternal Leader of the Nation of Islam, and a Warner to the government and people of the United States of America, and a Warner to the nations of the Earth.
Once again it is our great privilege, pleasure and honor to come to you with this great Series of Lectures titled “The Time and What Must Be Done.” The subject matter that we are going to discuss with you in Part 27 asks and answers a question that theologians have wrestled with, and have not been able to come up with the answer that satisfies their curiosities. And that question is: “Why did God make ‘devil’?”
Since there’s only one Creator, and all things were created by Him, then He, and He alone, is The Maker of His adversary, “The Devil” or “Satan.” As you may recall, in The Genesis of the Bible, as well as in the Holy Qur’an, “The Enemy” is looked upon as a “serpent”—but you know, as we said in a previous broadcast: Serpents don’t talk. So, “Satan” is a human being. And remember, we said that there is something inside of the human being that is “of God,” but there’s also something inside of the human being that is “of the adversary of God.” We don’t have to look a long distance to find the adversary, because the essence of that adversary is sitting up in ourselves.
We know that “Satan” or “The Devil,” is the adversary, the opponent, the foe of Almighty God Allah, and The People of God; but, why would God make an “adversary”? Since God is above need of everything, why would He bring into existence an “opponent,” an “opposer”? What is His Purpose? We have mentioned in previous broadcasts that it is written in the Holy Qur’an, Surah 2 Al-Baqarah (“The Cow”), verse 30 that Allah (God) said, “I am going to place a ruler in the earth.” And when the angels said, “We celebrate Your praise, we extol Your holiness, but what would You put in the earth as a ruler except that which would create mischief and cause the shedding of blood?” Allah answered the angels, saying: “I know what you know not.”
It is written in the Book of Romans, Chapter 8, verse 28: “All things work together for good to them that love God, and to them who are called according to His Purpose.” Since The Devil was given life by God, and had a Divine Purpose for his existence, then “The Ultimate Good” of God would be manifested in His reason for making a devil. “Why did God make devil?”—here is that question “why?” As we have discussed in Parts 25 and 26 of this lecture series (“The Lie and The Liar Must Be Exposed, Parts 1 and 2”): When we ask the question “Why?” we are asking 1) “For what purpose?” 2) “What is the reason?” and 3) “What is at the root of your intention?”
“Why did You, God, make ‘devil’?”
By The Grace of Allah, Part 27 is going to reveal what Allah meant when He said, “I know what you”—the angels—“know not.”
‘Incompletion, Imperfection and Dissatisfaction’: ‘The Wobble’ (Imbalance) in Human Nature
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that nothing in the universe is “perfectly round.” All of the planets are oblong; all of the stars are oblong. There is no “perfectly round” fruit; nor are there any heads of a human being that are “round”—our heads are shaped like the Earth, egg-shaped, oblong. And because The First Law of The Universe is Motion: Then anything that is not perfectly round, and is set into motion, will have a “wobble” to its motion.
The Earth, as the Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us, is traveling at a speed of 1,037 1/3 miles per hour; however, it is the smoothest ride you could ever get, except when the Earth is disturbed by a tremor or an earthquake. Under normal conditions, there is no airplane that we can fly that will give us a smoother ride than the planet that we came up out of, and are on our way back into. The motion of this planet is constant: The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that the Earth makes “four dips in and out,” giving us our seasons. And the only reason we don’t feel “the wobble,” or the imbalance, is because the planet is in such perfect obedience to The Law under which it was created.
In human nature, there is also a “wobble” and an imbalance, and an imperfection; this is why the Bible and Holy Qur’an agree that Allah (God) created “the heavens and the earth” in “six days” or “six periods of time” (Book of Genesis, Chapter 1, verses 1-31 and Surah 7, “The Elevated Places,” verse 54).
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us in his book The Flag of Islam, in the section titled “The Moon—The Equality” (page 23) that there could have been trillions of years to each “period” of these “six periods of time”: “The number of the White man is truly the same as that of the Black man who caused the deportation of the MOON from the Earth. We can add another six (6) because it was six (6) trillion years between the creation of life out of darkness to the creation of the present day SUN which took 6 trillion years. Therefore, if we would add that figure on to the time of the age of the MOON, we would have three (3) 6’s there. But we always have three (3) 6’s throughout the whole entire stages of the Earth. It was created in six (6) periods of time according to the Holy Quran which is the most accurate and truthful Book, if understood, in the hands of men of the Earth.” And the Book of Revelation, in Chapter 13, verse 18, agrees that “The Number of The Man” and “The Number of The Beast” is the number “6”: “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
“Six” (“6”), the Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us, represents “Incompletion,” “Imperfection” and “Dissatisfaction.” Anything that is “incomplete,” anything that is “imperfect,” is always striving for perfection! That is the nature of this creation; anything constructed under the number “6” is imperfect and incomplete. But Almighty God Allah is constantly bringing all creation towards “completion,” or toward perfection; so the scriptures of the Bible, in the Book of Matthew, Chapter 5, verse 48, teaches: “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”
We know from the Holy Qur’an, in Surah 2 Al-Baqarah (“The Cow”), verse 117, that whenever Allah says “Be!” He says, “Kun fa-yakun” (“Be! And it is.”). So when Jesus uttered these words that are from Allah, “Be ye perfect,” it is telling us: It had already been set into motion that the human being, at some point in time, would be perfected!
That is why the New Testament teaches in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 21, verses 1-5, “Behold I make all things new.” There will be a “new heaven and a new earth,” and “the former things” will pass away.
‘Disappointment and Frustration’: Emotional triggers for insanity and destruction
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, throughout his series of lectures that he gave in 1972 titled “The Theology of Time,” mentioned that the Earth and the Moon were, at one time, one planet; and that part of the planet called “Moon” was populated by The Original Black People. There were no “races” at that time. But, a great Black Scientist wanted to get all the people to get the same dialect, and he was frustrated and disappointed that he could not enforce his will. And out of his frustrations and disappointment, he decided to use his power to destroy the planet and all those on it.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said this Scientist was a Black man, and his intention was to destroy the Black man! The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that Allah (God), in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, The Great Mahdi, taught him that this Scientist drilled a hole two-thirds deep into the planet, and filled it with high explosives; and, set it off. He said that Master Fard Muhammad taught him that in that explosion, the Moon was blasted away from this part [the Earth] to the distance of approximately 12,000 miles; then she (Moon), turned over, emptying the water from that part onto this part which we now called Earth, depriving herself of life—and this is why the Earth is three-quarters (75 percent) water, one-quarter (25 percent) land. Now the scientists of this world are in agreement with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad: You can find published reports that when they sent their astronauts up to visit the moon, they brought back rocks from the moon and said that those rocks smelled like “gun powder.”
“Disappointment” and “frustration” are terrible emotional triggers that can trigger momentary insanity.
What are the meanings of “disappointment” and “frustration”?
Disappointment means “not satisfied; unhappy, because something was not as good, attractive or satisfactory as expected, or, because something hoped for or expected did not happen.”
Frustration is similar; it means “dissatisfaction”: “a feeling of disappointment, exasperation, or weariness caused by goals being thwarted or desires unsatisfied; frustrating of somebody or something, an act or instance of causing somebody or something to be dissatisfied or unfulfilled; or, something that blocks, thwarts, and upsets somebody all at the same time.”
If you really want to see what “dissatisfaction” can bring, just promise somebody something, and build up their expectation for what you promise; and then when they expect it, tell them “I’m sorry, I don’t have it”— and watch their faces. I tried this with my children when they were young; I wanted to see The Effect of it, and boy, did I see! I promised my daughter something, and kept telling her “I’m going to do it! I’m going to do it!”—but I was really trying her. And then when it was time to give her what I promised, I didn’t have it, and I saw anger come up in her … Of course, she wouldn’t dare tell me what she really felt; but, it was easy to see in her face.
To any of you reading these words: When you “promise” your children, you “promise” your wife, you “promise” your husband, you “promise” something, and then disappoint: That frustration, that disappointment they experience can lead to “momentary insanity.”
And this is absolutely what is meant in the Holy Qur’an about “The Wisdom of God” …
During his June 4, 1972 message, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that he was shown by The Great Mahdi, Master Fard Muhammad, “two little stars in the southeastern sky: a blue one and a red one.” He said Master Fard Muhammad told him: “It’s been 50,000 years since we have seen these two stars”; and He told the Honorable Elijah Muhammad that when these stars go out from our sight this time, it will be 50,000 years before they reappear.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that “every time they reappear there will be a universal change”—and he also said the scholars and scientists of the White people recognize these things, but they won’t dare talk to us on anything of the kind.
These “two stars” mean the removal of a world that doesn’t correspond with the original world.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad continued, stating to us that The Wisdom of Master Fard Muhammad, to bring an end to these signs, is to show “something to come afterwards.” He said of this Man’s Wisdom: There is no wisdom to come after this that will be able to erase this Wisdom, because this Wisdom is brought to you from The Root of Wisdom from The Originator of The Universe. This is what is meant in the Holy Qur’an concerning “The Messiah,” Jesus; that Allah (God) will “teach him the Book and the Wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel.” Well, that Knowledge and that Wisdom is with us today.
He concluded this lecture by stating: “We must have a man today to teach us” that Knowledge, and not “guess work” or “theory”; because, “Theory is not truth until you prove it to be truth. Many of us can have many theories, but not all of us can bring our theories to truth. …”
The Greatest Experiments of All: The Experimentation with ‘Self’
Allah has set this Universe and The Original Creation on a course that would ultimately, and eventually, lead to perfection. Nothing that Allah has done is for “vain purposes,” but to manifest to all who study Him that He is All-Wise: He knew His creation from the beginning, and He knew what it needed for perfection.
During his October 29, 1972 lecture, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said: “We know that the most intelligent life in the universe is on this planet.” How do we know that? He said because of the level of experimentation that goes on, on this planet; that you don’t see in the life that is on other planets.
“The greatest experiments of all” are the experiments that we have engaged in to advance our knowledge of God and our knowledge of Self. But “the greatest” of these experiments have been done with The Self, because it is only when The Self, which is of God—and is God—is perfected, that He can then bring in a perfect universe. And that is why the scripture says of Him, “Behold I make all things new”; and in the Book of Isaiah, Chapter 65, verse 17 it reads: “Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”
Brothers and sisters: There is a problem in us… And God would not come and manifest Himself until everything in us was fully exposed, or manifested to us. When we are fully exposed, and our defects are fully manifested, the human being can then be perfected. Then, when we make a perfect human being, we can perfect the universe that Almighty God created and set into motion to evolve toward “perfection.”
Tremendous life was lost by the action of a frustrated and disappointed “God” or “Scientist.” But every disappointment turned out for good, for 66 trillion years ago: Even though His thought was not “good,” good came from it! Because we now have a moon that equalizes the waters of the Earth, that ripens the crops and the fruits; a moon that gives us a calendar that we can tell time; and whose attracting power on the waters of the Earth, that it lost, keeps the waters from overspreading and drowning out civilization on the Earth. So! We bear witness that “all things work for good”—even evil is working toward an Ultimate Good!
So for those of us who love Almighty God Allah, and understand that whatever happens is for The Fulfilling of His Purposes, we can then ask: “Where did ‘Satan,’ The Devil, come from?” and understand that it is Allah Who brought The Devil into existence.
If you may say: “I can’t see a ‘good’ God bringing an opponent, or adversary, or a ‘devil’, into existence!” We can understand your thinking … But perhaps we’re being a little “emotional”; and also manifesting spiritual immaturity. God knows more than we: If we ask Him, He will tell us! You want to know “why” God is letting this evil continue on this planet; so much hatred, so much murder, so much rape, so much bloodshed, so much war, so much revolution: “God! Don’t You have power to stop this??” And Allah (God) will answer: “Of course I do. But I am working out your salvation.” The Devil, and his evil, is a part of our salvation.
Even The Devil himself is dissatisfied with himself—and he has not The Wisdom to fix himself nor the problems that his wickedness has created for himself! So under the name Nicodemus, he meets Jesus; and asks him, “What can I do to attain The Kingdom of God?” Study these words found in the Book of John, Chapter 3, verses 1-4: “There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, ‘Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: For no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.’ And Jesus answered and said unto Nicodemus, ‘Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.’ And Nicodemus saith unto Jesus, ‘How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?’”
In a future broadcast, we will talk about the womb in which The Caucasian was formed, and out of which this people came to birth.
‘The Iceman Inheritance’: Analyzing the ‘White mindset’ of ‘entitlement to rule, sexual depravity’
Satan has produced a world that is so adverse, that the wickedness of his world is destroying him; and he is looking now for “a way out.” This is the way Satan is thinking right now: Remember that God, or Scientist, that couldn’t get the people to speak the same dialect; who was frustrated and angry and disappointed, and decided he would “kill everybody on the planet—including himself”? Did you know that these same, or similar words, have been spoken by the leaders in Israel; that before Israel is destroyed, they will take the whole world down with them?
They have atomic weapons… And America certainly does; that thinking is in some of the Satanic minds in America, that they can “kill everybody on the Earth several times over.” Yes! They’re thinking, “If I am going to lose power, if I am going to lose the ability to rule the planet—if I am going to be destroyed by God, I am going to take everybody down with me!” Of course, they’re thinking like this. But they won’t be able to do it.
But some of us are like that, too, on a much smaller level: Some of us have become “possessed with power”; and some of us get “possessed of a man or a woman,” and think: “If I can’t get him, nobody’s gonna get him! I’ll kill him—and myself—first.” Another one will say: “She ain’t leaving me! I’ll kill her, then myself.” This is “insanity.” When one is “frustrated,” when their “hopes are dashed,” when they are “greatly disappointed”: That is a great trial on our rational mind.
So those of you who are listening to this broadcast, or reading my words: Whenever you feel disappointment, that is the time you must reach for The Creator to give you balance, because at that moment of insanity you may hurt yourself, and others as well.
You may ask: “What makes people like that? What drives people like that, this ‘frustration’ and ‘disappointment’ that our desires were not realized?” There is a writer named Michael Bradley, who, in his book titled The Iceman Inheritance: Prehistoric Sources of Western Man’s Racism, Sexism And Aggression (1991 Kayode Pub. paperback edition), raises questions about his own White race: “Why are we like this?”
When speaking of the “the aggressive and destructive acts of The Caucasians,” Mr. Bradley writes on page 13: “[Precisely because we realize ourselves to be unstable,] much effort has been expended in attempts to make sense out of our own apparently senseless behaviour.” And on page 28, he writes: “I will propose in this essay that the white race possesses an atypical level of aggression.”
What is the definition of “atypical”? It’s an adjective that means “unusual, untypical, uncommon, unconventional, unorthodox, irregular, abnormal, anomalous, aberrant, and deviant.” On page 14, Mr. Bradley states: “It is in the sphere of ‘abnormal’ violence that we Caucasoids excel among races. … Intellectual violence is statistically rare among other races. Intellectual violence is typical of Caucasoids. Our wars of religion, our Inquisition, our philosophical conflicts have no parallel among yellow, red, brown or Black men. … It is this kind of violence that makes our history appear senseless to other men, and senseless and baffling even to ourselves.”
When Mr. Bradley suggests that “scarcity of resources” and “survival of day-to-day cave life” is what caused Caucasians to become so aggressive, he states on page 26: “The Caucasoids, uniquely among the races of Mankind, evolved in a glacial”—or “cold”—“environment. There is an increasing body of scientific data suggesting that this group of men did develop in a narrow zone of life between fire and ice...between the cave fires and the savage cold [of the Wurm I ice age.] …These special adaptations had incidental side effects which resulted in an exceptionally aggressive psychology, an extreme expression of the cronos complex, and a higher level of psychosexual conflict compared to all other races of men].”
“The Cronos Complex”: What did he mean by “cronos complex”? “Cronos” is a Greek term for the verb meaning “to rule, to reign, to govern”; it has many phonetic translations, among them krans, kronus, cronus, cronos, krou nes, and kreno. According to the Encyclopedia Mythica website entry on “Cronus,” who was a “Titan God” in Greek Mythology that castrated his father Uranus whose power he envied and coveted—and to preserve his reign and power, Cronus devoured, consumed or ate, his children to preserve his rule—the name may derive from the verb kreno, which means “to exercise sway,” “to reign over,” “to govern,” “to rule.”
So, “the cronos complex” has to do with “one who has this inordinate need to exercise sway; to reign over, to govern”; in other words, “a feeling of entitlement to rule”—this is in the nature of the Caucasian people. This comes back again to the scripture in the Holy Qur’an where Allah (God) says to the angels: “I am going to place a ruler in the Earth.” If God is going to place him in the Earth, He also has to place in this ruler what is called “the cronos complex”: That idea or thought that he is to be the ruler, until The Coming of God to interfere with his rule. And that’s why it’s so difficult for White people to submit to any ruler other than himself.
“Psychosexual conflict” [a.k.a. “psychoanalytic sexual drive theory”]: This is attributed to Sigmund Freud who developed its theory of how sexuality “starts from a very young age,” and develops through “various fixations.” The theory states that from birth, there is a sexual drive that develops through five stages (the oral, the anal, the phallic, the latent, and the genital); and, if these stages are not “psychologically completed and released,” persons can be trapped by them, and they may lead to various defense mechanisms to avoid the anxiety produced from what they call “the conflict” associated with any given stage.
The reason why this is so important: Mr. Bradley talks about studying European history; particularly, one of the best examples is a Roman ruler known as “Caligula.” Under his rule, their whole worship was in phallic (“male genitalia”) symbols, (sex organs), orgies (“sex parties”), and “the drive of sex.”
What created this “psychosexual drive”? When we study the womb out of which The Caucasian came, he’ll gain a better understanding of himself. And we, also, will gain a better understanding of him, and a better understanding of how he has made us like himself.
White scholars ponder ‘The Causes’ for their own race’s evildoings
There was a U.S. Senator from Kansas by the name of John James Ingalls who, on January 23, 1890 during a meeting in the Senate, addressed President Benjamin Harrison regarding the Senate’s consideration of a bill (“S. 1121”) to “provide for the emigration of persons of color from the Southern States.” Pay attention to his words: “Mr. President, the race to which we belong is the most arrogant and rapacious, the most exclusive and indomitable in history. It is the conquering and the unconquerable race, through which alone man has taken possession of the physical and moral world. … All other races have been its enemies or its victims.”
“Rapacious” means “destructive and vicious; engaging in violent pillaging, and likely to harm or destroy things.”
In the book Imperialism: A Study, (published by New York, James Pott & Co., 1902) by British economic journalist John A. Hobson, in the chapter “Imperialism and The Lower Races” under Section VI (“6”), page 266, he writes: “The actual history of Western relations with lower races occupying lands on which we have settled throws, then, a curious light upon the theory of a ‘trust for civilization.’ When the settlement approaches the condition of genuine colonization, it has commonly implied the extermination of the lower races, either by war or by private slaughter, as in the case of Australian Bushmen, African Bushmen and Hottentots, Red Indians, and Maoris”—or “The Aborigines” of Australia—“or by forcing upon them the habits of a civilization equally destructive to them. …” The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said for every 1,000 years of the White race’s existence on our planet, they have killed 100 million people of color for every “1,000 years.” So in 6,000 years: They have killed nearly 1 billion people of color! And now, according to what we have read from Mr. Henry Kissinger (refer to “Part 4” of this lecture Series): They intend to cull (“exterminate,” “get rid of”) the population of our planet from by 2-3 billion people. These are The Blood-Shedders of our planet.
Mr. Hobson continues: “This is what is meant by saying that ‘lower races’ in contact with ‘superior races’ naturally tend to disappear. How much of ‘nature’ or ‘necessity’ belongs to the process is seen from the fact that only those ‘lower races’ tend to disappear who are incapable of profitable exploitation by the superior White settlers, either because they are too ‘savage’ for effective industrialism or because the demand for labour does not require their presence.” Brothers and sisters: Are you looking for a job? Are you “too savage” for effective industrialism, or, because the demand for labor does not require your presence? Are we going to Washington to celebrate the 50th Anniversay of The March on Washington, and are we—50 years later—going to still be begging government seeking “Jobs and Justice”?
Mr. Hobson writes: “Whenever superior races settle on lands where lower races can be profitably used for manual labour in agriculture, mining, and domestic work, the latter do not tend to die out, but to form a servile class. This is the case, not only in tropical countries where White men cannot form real colonies, working and rearing families with safety and efficiency, and where hard manual work, if done at all, must be done by ‘coloured men,’ but even in countries where White men can settle, as in parts of South Africa and of the southern portion of the United States.” This “servile” state of being is our lot. “As we entered these countries for trade, so we stay there for industrial exploitation, directing to our own profitable purposes the compulsory labour of the lower races. This is the root fact of Imperialism so far as it relates to the control of inferior races; when the latter are not killed out they are subjected by force to the ends of their white superiors.”
An author and a Southerner named Gerald W. Johnson in 1964 wrote: “Of all the creatures to appear on this earth, the White man is the fiercest by far.” And when a female author by the name of Riane Eisler wrote in the “Introduction” to her book The Chalice and The Blade: Our History, Our Future, asking the questions: “Why do we hunt and persecute each other? Why is our world so full of man’s infamous inhumanity to man—and to woman? How can human beings be so brutal to their own kind? What is it that chronically tilts us toward cruelty rather than kindness, toward war rather than peace, toward destruction rather than actualization?”
It is because you become frustrated; you become disappointed. And in that “disappointment,” you don’t handle it well—and it drives you to insanity. And then, you want to kill someone.
Taking off ‘the mask of civility’ worn by a cold-hearted savage
Have you noticed that there was a time that Black people could find refuge in France: Many musicians and entertainers went there, and the French saw them as a “novelty”; and, they felt as though they were really accepted more than they were accepted in their own countries? Do you remember after “colonialism” died, many of those that England colonized began to move to England; and at first, it was a “novelty”: Here are brothers and sisters from the former colonies in The Caribbean, from the former colonies in Africa, from the former colonies in Asia and the Isles of the Pacific? Yes… And you were “accepted.” What’s happening today?
As Caucasians begin to feel “threatened,” and their “security” is compromised, “the mask of civility” comes off—and then you see murder coming out of their hearts and their eyes. It is the same in France; it is the same in Belgium. It is the same in Norway and Sweden, and Finland, and Denmark. It is the same in Germany, and in Russia. All over our planet, “The Hatred of Black” is manifesting.
Even among our Arab brothers: Remember in Part 19 when we discussed “Yakub”? After he made his people, and sent them back to the Holy Land, within six months they had turned the Holy Land upside-down. And so, we rounded up all that we could find, and drove them out into the hills and cavesides of Europe: The cold caves, where they entered into a fierce and savage existence fighting for food—they became closer to the animals; and that is what the word “savage” means.
A “savage,” the Honorable Elijah Muhammad says, is “a person that has lost the knowledge of themselves, and is living a beast life.”
Now let’s “come home,” and look at the coldness of the inner cities of America, called “the ghetto”: Look at how cold and heartless we have become toward one another. We can’t go from one block or two, to another block, because there’s a gang in this block that hates the gang in that block; and so, we are afraid to move! This is happening not just in America in the inner cities, it’s happening in Bermuda! It’s happening in The Caribbean! It’s happening in Africa! This is “social engineering” at its worst! And that is why in the scriptures of the Book of John, Chapter 3 when Jesus talked to Nicodemus about being “born again,” in verse 14 it says: “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so shall The Son of Man be lifted up.”
Right now in the Arab and Muslim world there is bloodshed. And more and more bloodshed is coming. Prophet Muhammad would be very displeased seeing Muslims killing each other because of the interference of The Mischief-Maker and The Blood-Shedder. [Look at the events that have emerged involving the U.S. government in Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Afghanistan]—and you have not “figured it out” yet… America is The Mischief-Maker. America is The Blood-Shedder.
Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan: You are taking the side of America in their dislike of Islam—but they put “Sunni” against “Shia”! What would the Holy Prophet say if he saw Muslims, who “bear witness that there is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is His Messenger,” slaughtering each other to the joy of the West?
Yes, Satan is loose on our planet—but his time is short. But, he did not spring from “nothing”: He sprung from a weakness in us.
Well, that is how The Devil is made... This world is in such terrible condition, that its present rulers are at their wits end to solve the problems that their wickedness has created. They are “100 percent dissatisfied” with their own world because of The Evil Effect of their Mischief-Making and Blood-Shedding, and what it is now bringing upon them.
Next week, inshallah (God Willing), we’ll take up more on the subject of how this “devil” is made, and The Divine Purpose for his making.
