“Or do they say: He has forged it? Nay, it
is the Truth from thy Lord that thou mayest warn a people to whom no
warner has come before thee that they make walk aright.”
Holy Qur’an, chapter 32, verse 3
The following are excerpts reprinted from Chapter 109 of Message To The Blackman in America, Messenger Elijah Muhammad
The above verse says to the Messenger that he is to warn a people to
whom no warner has come before him. Many of the writers on the history of
Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) of nearly
1,400 years ago, write that Muhammad was the first prophet that Mecca had
ever seen. Even Maulana Muhammad Ali, who translated the Holy Qur’an in
English says in his footnotes on this verse that Muhammad was the first
prophet that Mecca had ever seen and that he was raised among the
descendants of Ishmael.
How do the scholars and writers of Islam say such when, if they make
Muhammad a descendant of Ishmael they are condemning their own sayings
that he was the first prophet of Mecca, when both Abraham and Ishmael
were prophets according tot he Holy Qur-an. Even the Bible and all
religious people recognize Abraham as being a prophet.
Therefore, Muhammad could not have been the first prophet, because the
very significance of the signs that Abraham and Ishmael built in Mecca
tells us much about the type of prophet and people that would be raised
up in the last days. So how can they say that this revelation refers to
Mecca, the Meccans and Muhammad.
It reads: “Thou mayest warn a people to whom no warner has come
before that they may walk aright.” This condemns the very fundamental
teaching of the originator of the Prophets and Guides for the people
coming from that direction, from the East. Mecca has been a sacred place.
God, Himself, has protected it sacredness ever since time immemorial.
How then could this be a savage and unknown of the righteous and of
even a righteous warner if there were not the will of God to keep that
city sacred and deserving as a sign of righteousness?
Then how can the scholars say that it has not even seen a prophet or
a warner from Allah? Would Abraham and Ishmael have chosen a more wicked
place to set up a sign of the last warner and his people, which the Kaaba
and black stone represents?
The very words, “to whom no warner has come before,” that they put in
a book that is called the last revelation of Allah to the people could
not mean Mecca. The last warner and the last people to whom prophets and
the truth have never come to are the same people that the Bible and Holy
Qur-an refer to as being blind, deaf, dumb and (mentally) dead, who must
be resurrected before there can be a judgment of the wicked.
No people answers this description better than the American so-called
Negroes. And there is no country that better represents that description
of where no prophets have been sent than America. As far back as history
takes us in reference to America, we find no prophet of Allah preaching
Islam or warning the people in the Western Hemisphere of a coming
judgment and to submit to the will of Allah that they may be saved from
the destruction of that day. It is America.
The prayer of Abraham does not refer to the raising up of a prophet in
Arabia, but of a prophet among that particular seed or people of his, who
must be searched for, located and found, a teacher must be given to them
from Allah to teach and warn them of the purpose of Allah and the purpose
of the Messenger being raised among them.
The Bible gives us a very clear prophecy and knowledge of this
particular last messenger in many places. It is that he is the first and
the last who will be among the people, because they would be the only and
last people who would be without the guidance of Allah at the end of the
world and must be guided into the path of Allah if they are to be saved
from the destruction of the enemies of Allah who had deceived and now
hold that people in bondage — the true descendants of Ishmael of whom
Ishmael himself was a prototype and his mother the outcast.
There are many erroneous mistakes made by the scholars and scientists
that have caused much misunderstanding of the truth. There are many Arabs
throughout the world who cannot bear witness to anyone that another
messenger would rise up after Muhammad, who was here nearly 1,400 years
ago. This is due to their misunderstanding of the Holy Qur-an and the
scriptures of the Prophets Abraham, Moses, Jesus and even Muhammad,
They forget that the Bible prophesies of a lost member of the nation
of the original people of the earth, who would be lost somewhere on
earth. But neither the Bible nor the Holy Qur-an specifies the place. The
nearest the Bible comes to it is that they would be lost in the
wilderness. That fits Ameirca.
And Moses says that God told him (Deut. 18:18) “I will raise them up a
prophet from among thy brethern like unto thee and will put my words in
his mouth and shall speak unto them all that I command him.”
This is an answer or a prophecy that compares with the prayer of
Abraham–that God raised up a messenger from among them and taught him
the wisdom and the book, because his people would not have knowledge of
the book and were only guessing at its meaning. This book is referring to
the Bible –that they were guessing at its meaning.
This is true! Thousands of preachers here are preaching the Bible and
do not understand the true meaning of it. They only guess at its meaning.
It is not true that the Bible was being taught and preached by the
Arab people before Muhammad. The Torah was used among the Jewish people
but in the vicinity of Mecca and its inhabitants. A prophet would be
raised among a people and that this man would be like Moses, but the Holy
Qur-an and Bible do not give the direct place where this people would be.
Moses was raised among his brothren to warn and guide them, and they were
the ones who rejected him at first. And it was Moses that God spoke to
that a last messenger would be like him.
Moses’ people had not had a prophet to come to them from God before
the raising up of Moses, and they did not know the scripture because
Pharaoh had them worshiping in his false religion. Therefore, Moses had
to preach a new God and a new religion to the Hebrews and give them a new
concept of God and His religion.
So shall it be with the last messenger. His people must be taught
about the true God and that God’s true religion which the slave-masters
did not teach them. The Holy Qur-an back up the truth of Allah, that He
always raises an apostle from among a people whom He would warn.
If Allah would warn America and the poor slaves who have been blinded
and made deaf and dumb to their masters, should not that messenger be one
of the so-called Negroes instead of a so-called Negro trying to learn
from what Muhammad said to the Arabs nearly 1,400 years ago. This is a
guide for us today? It does not stop there.
We have to have something more; therefore, the Holy Qur-an prophesies
of another scripture being given, and the Bible also prophesies of
another scripture being given in the time of the judgment, because the
Holy Qur-an takes us up to the ressurrection of the dead but not beyond
“Warning a people whom no warner has come before that they may walk
aright.” It is directed at the American so-called Negroes in North
America. As Jesus comes close to revealing the whereabouts of the lost
members of a great nation in these words, “that he was sent to the lost
sheep of the house of Israel, or in the house of Israel. The lost sheep
are not Israel. The lost sheep were in the house or government of Israel
and were swallowed up by Israel so thoroughly that they were always
But we just cannot overlook the prophecy of Ezekiel wherein he
prophesies that God said, “Even i will go and search for them, and I will
bring them again and settle them in their own land and among their own
This is referring to the so-called Negroes. And Isaiah says in his
prophecy concerning us that God said He would call them by a new name
that He, Himself, would give them, one of His own names, and would take
away the names of the enemy and would slay the enemy.
Let us remember that we must understand the truth of prophecy, the
sayings of the Holy Qur-an and Bible on this subject, and then place them
where they belong and not try to fit them in some place where they do not
