Corruption has appeared in the land and the sea on account of that which men’s hands have wrought, that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done, so that they may return. [Holy Qur’an 30:41].

Allah, the All Wise, the Best Knower, who has knowledge of the past, the present and the future revealed this above prophecy to Muhammad (May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) nearly 1,400 years ago, as though it were taking place during that time. However, it was referring to these days, and we see the manifestation and fulfillment of the above verse.

There is no doubt in anyone’s mind today that the condition of the nations is such that needs a ruler who is not involved in the present world of corruption to bring about peace and good will among the people of the earth. There cannot be peace for the lovers who seek after peace until the peace breakers have been removed from authority and their activities of mischief making, causing bloodshed, grief, sorrow and trouble among peaceloving nations.

There is not a civilized government of people at this writing that is not in trouble and trying to find a solution to the cause. All the nations of the earth are so corrupt with other than good that they cannot come to any agreement on peace with each other, then carry it into practice. The disagreement and corruption today is seen not only in the Christian world of Europe and America but also in the very heart of the Holy Land in Africa and Asia.

Corruption started in Europe, and it has now spread over ninetenths of the population of the Planet Earth. It has caused the dissatisfaction of nearly 100 percent of the civilized nations.

Dissatisfaction has reached such a percentage that it is bound to bring about universal war, since the corruption is universal. The continuing disagreement between the heads of the nations is referred to as CONFUSION and CONFLICT in the Bible and Holy Qur’an. In this world of universal corruption and crises and the ever-growing threat of universal war, we, the so-called American Negroes, the Lost-Found members of the tribe of Shabazz, should unite and take our stand on the side of Allah (God), His religion of Peace (Islam) and our own nation (the Black People).
