FREEDOM, JUSTICE, EQUALITY
By Messenger Elijah Muhammad
THE SUN is the first of the great lights of the heavens that was made.
Second came the stars and third came the moon The sun gives us free light
and heat.The light enables us to see how to travel around and over our
home, the Planet earth. Without light, we have no sight. Without heat,
life will freeze.
This light of the sun the Creator made to be free.Therefore, He uses the
good of the sun -by nature – for us. And the great light that the sun
carries, gives us a light by which we may travel on our earth. It is all
free, for the wicked,as well as for the righteous.
THE WHITE race does not give the Creator any credit for His wonderful
works of nature. He ( Allah ) declared that we, the black man, who have
been deprived of freedom for a very long time, were the first in the sun.
The son was created by our Father to give its light and heat freely to
life in the universe of these nine planets that she is capable of
attracting with her light and heat. with us on our earth, making our way
around the sun, our earth is made to bow four times – ( autumn, winter,
spring,and summer ).
THE POOR black man was put of power to rule six thousand years ago. The
African black man was deprived of universal power 50,000 (fifty thousand
) years ago, due to the father of our tribe, at that time, disagreeing
with the other scientists on making a people, as we have been made on
that continent ( Africa ). Since that time,our father’s disagreement has
cause us to disagree with each other, but some of us remained in the
light of truth and civilization. They are found in the northern section
EGYPT HAS the ancient marks of the black man’s civilization. At times,
they served various types of God during the past six thousand years.Islam
awakened Egypt to the splendor of her wisdom more than anything else. The
white race spoiled Egypt with its integration and made her as a servant
for the white European people for a while. THE PRESENT government of
Egypt, under President Gamal Abdel Nasser, is in search of the lost glory
of that mighty nation which dominated that continent for tens of
thousands of years.
The black man always has loved the sun and the nature of it- light and
heat, therefore, he dominates the equatorial section of our earth. And,
below the equator, to the south, you will find the black man covering the
earth like a belt.
THE WHITE man was driven out of Arabia into the cold, frigid zone of what
is now called Europe. The people of Russia are referred to in the Bible
and Holy Qur-an as the Gogs. Other infidel people,such as the European
and American white race, are referred to by some of the scientists as
being the Magogs. However, that great sign of God’s work, in the Person
of Master Fard Muhammad, is to teach us the knowledge of ourselves from
the beginning of the creations of the heavens and the earth, declaring us
to be the members of the Creator. We must be awakened to the knowledge of
ourselves as being such members.
This knowledge should force us to take our place in the sun and use the
very nature and the law of that sun for our standard. We would have love
for our government on earth as a freedom loving people and grant freedom
to all life that is in the sun as our Father created the sun to give us
light and heat freely. And in our dealings with man, we should give to
him the freedom to exercise his well-being in the universe which is
necessary for his well-being – freely, without hindrance.
The white race has deprived the black people of this – and equal chance
of freedom (although the sun and its planets by nature give light freely)
and an equal change to survive and share in the earth that our Father
created for us all that come onto the earth-except enemies, as the white
race. OUT OF the law of freedom, justice and equality, the white race was
brought.The white race is an opposer of freedom, justice and equality.
They were made, by nature, to oppose the freedom of the lives of other
human beings, of beasts, fowls of the air, and fish of the sea.
They have brought much trouble between men on the face of our earth, up
to today.Through the wakening of the people by the truth of Almighty God
Allah, in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad.,they have become so angry
and dissatisfied with the white race as being an enemy to the well-being
of other than white,that today a raging war now has begun. It will have
no end until the God of freedom, justice and equality has made all men to
bow to the general law of nature.THEN, AND only then, will we enjoy our
people on this earth in peace and love of the brotherhood.
SPIRITUAL SIDE :
Since we have been reading the physical teaching of the sun, by Allah,
let us now take a look at how it compares with the spiritual teaching of
the message revealed to me from Allah Who appeared in the Person of
Master Fard Muhammad,To Whom praise is due forever.THE SUN IS a great
sign that we all should study to understand the wisdom of Almighty God,
Allah.The entire starry canopy, called the heaven is like a book opened
before our eyes, that if studied will give us the knowledge of its
Creator and Maker.
In looking into this great unending mirror-like creation, we see the
great works of Almighty God. Our little wisdom is far too weak in
understanding to try comparing it with the wisdom of this Architect Who
designed this beautiful universe that we have. HE USED the sun to show us
how the physical and spiritual freedom of the light of the sun gives life
here on the earth and on other planets in their cycles. He uses the sun
to keep life and to bring forth the entire earth ever alive for you and
me without us paying anything whatsoever, to the great Supreme Being Who
has power over the sun and its works. THIS IS A mighty light coming from
a ball of fire that we call the sun that He taught the diameter is
There is no one able to tell us just what the fuel is that the sun uses
to keep burning these billions and trillions of years. It is known, but
who knows it ? Many ideas, theories and other suggestions have been made,
but we do know that she is afire. We can draw fire from her and
everything that is alive upon the earth has some of her fire in it, even
to ourselves. Our bodies have the fire of the sun in them.
ALL OF this, which is essential for our existence, has not served as a
knowledge to the enemy, devil, that he should have used the law of
freedom in his rulership of the people of earth. Freedom is essential to
life itself. What is life without freedom ? Life ever cries and seeks the
way to freedom. This is the nature of life. No one has been so evil to
imprison life, but the enemy,devil of ours.HE HAS built strong prison
houses everywhere under his rule to bind and cast into prison those who,
by nature, are made free and should be free. In the Hereafter there will
be no jails – for there will be no prisoners to put in jail.
FREEDOM FOR the so-called American Negro is the purpose and work of
Almighty God. Who has made His appearance among us in the Person of
Master Fard Muhammad,Whom praise is due forever. His purpose is to free
the so-called American Negroes and set them at liberty – on the free
earth, created by our Father – from the hands and power of the enemy of
THE ENEMY even commercializes on making prisons. He makes laws that he
knows the prisoner is bound to break.Even their law-makers break the
laws. We must be freed so that we may be able to enjoy the freedom of
life on this earth as other nations. They have a false excuse to
prosecute the American so-called Negro, saying that we are citizens and
should go forth and fight a people he calls his enemy.
