The Knowledge of God Himself
THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD HIMSELF
(Saviour’s Day, February 26, 1969)
By Messenger Elijah Muhammad
Reprinted from Our Saviour Has Arrived, Chapter 11
We thank Allah for His great Blessings that He has bestowed upon us, to
remember us, who were lost and now found, whom He Himself came forth,
leaving everything of His Glory and coming to us. He came searching the
Earth to find and locate that lost member of the Aboriginal people here
in the farthest part of our planet, the West, who were brought here over
400 years ago in chains. There is One that has been born to take the
shackles off us and relieve us of those chains that have shackled and
poisoned us for 400 years. We are happy and thankful to that God; a God
that has mercy on us; a God that loves us. We are happy and thankful to
be here, to bear witness that today we have on our side a God who is able
to lead and guide us and protect us and deliver us back to our own. We
Glory has many obstacles. We are tried by many things. We have a hard way
getting back home, as we did leaving home. But we want to say to you that
this is not Our Savior’s Day as we call it by birth, but it is Our
Savior’s Day because every day is Our Savior’s Day!
For the first time since our fathers fell into the chains and shackles of
their enemies and were brought here for the purpose of being made blind,
deaf, and dumb, we have come to the knowledge of self, to the knowledge
of our God, our people, and to the knowledge of the way back to our
Native Land. For the first time, a Friend has come to us! A Friend,
indeed! A Friend who is so powerful that He can just desire a thing, or
say, “Be” and it comes to pass. Such a Friend! I’d like to be His Friend!
But first we want to consider a few topics. We want to think over how it
happens that we are here. We want to think over the time that we are now
living in. “Why, Elijah Muhammad, are you always preaching all over the
country that this is Judgement?” “Why, Elijah Muhammad, are you
constantly warning us that we ought to unite with our own kind?” “What is
going to happen to other than our kind?” “Why should we separate?” “Why
should we unite to ourselves and not to everybody?” “Why should we think
more of ourselves then we think of other people?” “Why should we leave
the religion of other people and come to what you call Islam?” “Why
should we serve another God?” “Why should we believe in another
religion?” “Is not the religion called Christianity right for us?” “Why
should we give up our Christian names?” “Are not the Christian names of
the white people right for us?”
I only want to acquaint you with what belongs to you. If you are free,
why not exercise that freedom? You can’t be free if you are begging and
serving and looking forward to freedom from a master who says he freed
you a hundred years ago. Let’s look at these few little topics. You say,
“I don’t want to be separated.” Who said that they are going to force you
Our fathers were brought here; not that they came of their own accord.
They were brought here. They were forced to come here. They wanted to
return home, but they could not swim 9,000 miles.
They stood on the shore of North America with grief-tears flowing down
their Black cheeks begging that “Ship,” “Oh, Ship Jesus, take me back,”
but it was leaving them. They knew not the people! Oh, I want us just to
look into this thing.
They knew not the strangers because it had been prophesied and predicted
a long time ago to Abraham that they would dwell among strangers, not
among their acquaintances, but among strangers and in a strange land.
Think that over, Brothers. In a strange land they will dwell. “But after
400 years I will judge that people.” “And bring again, Abraham, your
people.” Who is Abraham? The Holy Qur’an, the 22nd Surah, says that
Abraham gave us the name Muslims.
Who gives you Christianity? Who gives you Christian names? We want to
look into it a little. You say your name is that which white people call
themselves by. Are you white people? You say, “Christianity is my
religion.” Who said it was Jesus religion? Did Jesus say that it was his
religion? You are now arguing, fighting, and disputing over the religion
in which you should believe, having no knowledge of your own religion nor
the one that you are in that is not yours.
How can Christianity be God’s Religion? How can it be His Religion when
He changes not? Did He give that religion to Adam? No. The Adam – people,
from the time of Moses to the time of Muhammad, had their own religion,
their own God. We know by their history.
Every nation on the earth has it’s own God, and still has it’s own God,
but you. You bow down and worship what your slavemaster says to worship,
and that He is a Mystery. That means I don’t know Him. A Mystery God is
One that no one knows. I think the white man is pretty smart.
He puts you in falsehood and fixes it so that you cannot condemn him. You
ask him, “Where is that God?” He says, “Look up.” “Where is that heaven?”
He says, “Look up.” I say he is a very smart man to fool people by the
hundreds and millions and whole nations and races. They don’t question.
They bow their heads and say, “Yes sir” — and go on with nothing.
Say, where is that God? No man knows. He doesn’t even think to ask,
“Well, what are you trying to teach me then?” He never asks any
questions–takes it, and swallows it, hook, line, and sinker. No
questions. Then you come and say; “Look, I have a little statue over
here, I have a God! Oh, you should bow.” What do you worship, Mister? “I
worship God.” “Well, where is He?” “Oh, no man has ever seen Him.” And if
no man has ever seen God at any time, then no man knows anything about
Well, you and I will come to some conclusion about this thing in a while.
Hindus have been on this planet for untold ages. They are an Original
people. They have been here for a long, long time.
For 35,000 years, they have been worshipping other than the Real God.
Think that over. But that’s no time. After a while we will learn that
that is nothing, just 35 days or 35 minutes to time. A long, long time!
We are talking about Gods today. I want you to have patience.
God let the Hindu go astray and worship whatever he wants to. Today you
find the Hindu with more gods than he can mention. Everything is a god to
the Hindu. He is far worse then any religious people you know of. He
makes his God, and when he gets of ideas how to make them, he starts
worshipping himself. That’s the Hindu. God was talking with me about
these two people, the Christian and the Hindu, one day. He said, “You
know, Brother,” (He called me Brother), He said, “There is a law among
Us, a ruling,” He said, “if the Hindu and the Christian are walking
together,” He said, “kill the Hindu first because the Hindu is more
poison than the Christian.” And he is. For 35,000 years he has been
believing in other than the Real God; that’s a long time; 29,000 years
before the Christians.
We have Indians. They have their own God looking like them. We have
Japanese. They have a God looking Japanese. We have Chinese. They have a
God looking Chinese. Think that over. We have the Jew who does not
believe too much in worshipping idols. He still holds to Moses’ teaching.
He is nearer to us than any other race in the way of worship. We have the
Christians who have idol worshipping. They carve out statues of Jesus and
Mary, set them up in church, and tell you to bow down to them and worship
them. That’s a piece of wood he carved out or that is a piece of stone he
carved out. Make it look like the statue of a woman and a baby, and they
tell you as you pass by to bow or cross your heart. That’s a good way to
do that thing too; cross your heart; and you don’t pull your heart
straight up and down because you are not bowing to anything like straight
truth. So you put a cross across it. That means that you are cross; at
the crossways of truth and falsehood.
One fellow told me one day–he said, “Elijah,” he said, “you know, you go
into too much definition.” I said, “Why do you tell me that?” He said,
“Because people don’t understand.” I said, “Do you understand without any
Now, they have Gods molded after their own fashion and likeness. Where is
yours, Brothers? You don’t find in America a little “nigger” God, do you?
The so-called American Negro bows to everything that looks white. Now he
has on the walls of his home and in his church white pictures and statues
that are made by the imagination of white people. He calls them after
these names, this is the disciple, this is Peter, this is Paul, or this
is Mary and her beloved baby Jesus. You are absolutely blind, deaf, and
dumb. This is Mary. Yes. And she bows down and he kisses the little baby
ad it looks white. But you show him a Black one and he gets back. Then he
wants to question you. “Oh, that’s not Mary’s baby!” You are brought up
believing and worshipping white and hating Black. “I want to integrate. I
want to be the brother of you white people.” That’s what martin Luther
King said. When he started talking about being the real brother, then the
white man killed him because the white man knows that his race cannot
produce Black children!
The Black God. The Black man’s God. He could not say out there to the
public, between 20 and 30 million people here, he could not say; “I would
like that all of us unite who are Black.” He could not say that! He was a
lover of white people — the people that nature did not make him to be.
Nature made him to be one member of the Black People. And than after all
the hell that white people have given to his people for 400 years, he
comes out talking about; “I don’t want to be your brother-in-law, I want
to be your real brother.” A man who is supposed to be a theologian, who
has studied theology and the scriptures of the Bible is fool enough to
tell the world that he wants to be his slavemaster’s brother. I say,
Brothers, you worship all the leaders you want. I am not trying to force
you to follow me, I am happy without you if you are happy without me!
I only want to tell you the truth of Self. If you are Black, why do you
want to be white when white people came after Black? If you are Black, I
say and repeat, you produced white! There was no white nor light before
you. You produced both of them, light and white. You are natural – born
and part of that in which you were created. You are the only man who
needed light to light up Your Universe. You brought forth light. You are
walking around looking for a God to bow to and worship. You Are the God!
Think over these things. The Black man, think over that, made so blind,
deaf, and dumb in Africa and America that he seeks now white. He doesn’t
like his color. Why? Because the white man doesn’t like it. He doesn’t
like that, he (the Black man) should have that color because that color
will live forever. Praises be to Allah. I think the white man is wise.
You are here today to learn in what direction you should turn to seek God
– look at yourself! Look at yourself. You certainly don’t know yourself.
But He who has been born to bring you out of darkness now into the
marvelous light of wisdom and understanding of yourself and your kind (
the Black man’s kind) knows and understands.
Should we bow to a God that was just born 6,000 years ago? Six-thousand
years ago? Take that from our deportation from the Moon 66 trillion years
ago. Just deduct now, 6,000 from 66 trillion, not 66 thousand, but
trillions! We’re not talking in any thousands. We are not talking into
millions nor billions, but trillions! If you don’t mind, I will preach. I
don’t know anything but preach. God has made me a preacher. I always
wanted to be one. I was about to start preaching Christianity, but He
caught me before I ever started. He as good as said, “Little Fool, you
are yet to be taught what religion you should teach. He took me with Him
for three years, night and day. He said, “Here it is, Elijah, you can go
now, and I can go.” I said, “Thank you.” He said, “You don’t need Me
anymore.” Oh, yes, I do I need You.
Every race has a God looking like itself. But here in America, poor,
blind, deaf, and dumb Originals, my own Brothers, don’t have a God
looking like them. He doesn’t have any God at all–only the white man.
Now comes the time that he should be separated from the white man and go
for Self. He says, “No, no, no, I want to stay with him!” What must be
done to make him go for himself? He is sold to his Master. What must be
Angel said to Baal and to his donkey — He said; “If the donkey had not
seen me, I would have slew both of you.”
The donkey He’s mentioning there means; “If that little dumb Messenger’s
eyes had not come open to the knowledge that I am God, I would have
killed all of you.” Because it’s time, it’s time that you should be
killed. “But it happened that he opened his eyes and he saw Me; he
recognized Me.” Praises be to Allah. “I am going to give him a key. I am
going to give him Keys for all of them, that he can open their cavedoors.”
“Open then up, Elijah, here are the keys! And tell them to come forth,
that I am here. Tell them I will set them in Heaven at once–money, good
homes, friendships in all walks of life.” The Black man’s God. “Tell them
that I will walk up in a mountain 40 miles to teach just one of them.
Tell them Elijah, I love them!” “They have been here 400 years, and there
is none that has befriended them. I Am their God,” He said, “and I love
them. I will destroy the Nations of the Earth, to save them and then die
Myself.” And I said, “I’ll do the same.”
I said, “I can’t destroy the Nations, but I will die trying to teach
them.” He (Allah) looked at me and smiled. He said, “Yes,” He said, “You
will do that.” He looked at me some more. He said, “Yes, He will give his
life.” He said, “Jesus didn’t so anything, no more than any Believer.”
Well, that’s right. If I say I believe in God and His true Religion,
certainly I will give my life for it.
For more than 40 long years, I have been calling on you to accept Heaven
at once. You are rejecting it. You want it from the white man. I say, my
friends, that today you have to do something for yourself. I say the
white man has done a great thing for you to give you education how to go
for yourself. I again give the white man credit for even trying to feed
you when you are hungry. You are begging him and won’t work for Self!
This is right. I say he is very nice to you because if I had a whole
nation of people into the millions and they would not go out and do
something for themselves, I would sit down on them. I would.
But he nurses you like the slave or like his fathers did when you were
under them in servitude slavery. He still nurses you — gives you bread
and water, clothes, shelter, money, jobs, just to keep you with him. That
is all now.
He pulls the string if too much is coming down and turns it off. He keeps
you in that position. He doesn’t try to help us go for self. He doesn’t
want us going for ourselves. He wants us a subject people to himself.
Regardless to you being free, he still wants you to remain with him.
He will give you today, not yesterday, but today, better jobs — if you
will go along with him and stay with him. He knows that this is the Days
of Your Deliverance. He knows that a God has raised up a Messenger as a
guide to you. They are very wise — a long way from being dumb. It is you
that is dumb.
They don’t want you going out building for Self. They want you to ask
them to build. That means you are their slave. He doesn’t want you going
out farming even as much as making your own food. That means that you
soon will be stuffing your stomachs with bread and meat that you raised,
and he cannot profit from that. Think it over.
You want to go along with your good white folks. I want you to show me
where they are good! I beg them on the last page of our paper, Muhammad
Speaks, to let us go, and give us a place just across the border here in
another state somewhere. Let us live to ourselves since we cannot get
together in Peace. He won’t do it. No, no, no! You may learn to do
something for yourself! But, I say, it would be wise if they (the white
race) would do so. But if they don’t want to do so, God is here to give
us a Place.
The scriptures must be fulfilled. We are between 20 and 30 million Black
people here in America and have been here for over 400 years. Now the
white man who kept us blind, deaf, and dumb, to the knowledge of
ourselves still doesn’t want to see us go free.
This is an open proof. I put that on the last page of our paper knowing
that the white man was not going to do it. As God said to Moses, He said,
“You go tell Pharaoh to let them go.” But he (Pharaoh) wouldn’t let them
go by a long ways. Allah (God) said, “I have to kill Pharaoh to get them.”
This is what happened. He had to drown Pharaoh and his army in a sea of
water. They call it the Red Sea, but it’s not a ‘red’ sea, it’s a ‘blue’
sea. And I mean it’s really blue. I looked in it and I said, “Why have a
reference to, not that Sea, but a sea of fire that is coming up to get
Pharaoh the second he refuses to let his slaves go free?
The Bible says, “They refused to let their prisoners go free and held on
to them; held they as prey.” You know what this meant there, “hold you as
prey!” So whenever the God or Your People come after you, he will say,
“If you take me, you will take him too.” This is what it means. I say,
Brothers, the time is here, that you should think for Self. You should
build up an economy for Yourself. You say, “Why should I go out there and
work and grow a crop when you are prophesying Judgement?” I say,
“Brother, if Judgement comes tomorrow, you’ve got to eat today!”
We have to do many things. This Earth was made for you. Your Father and
my Father created the Earth for us — for Black people. It was not
created for White people, it was created for Black people. I want you to
know that, the God of the Black man.
How came the Black God, Mr. Muhammad? He is Self-created. How could Self
create Self? Take your magnifying glass and start looking at these little
atoms out here in front of you. You see that they are egg-shaped and they
are oblong. You crack them open and you will find everything in them that
you will find out here. Then were there some of them (atoms) out here?
Well, who created them? I want you to accept the Black God. You say,
“There is no beginning or ending.” I admit that. But we do know that they
had to have some kind of beginning. But how it happened, we don’t know.
That’s why we say that His Beginning we don’t know anything about.
Imagine, you close your eyes now; imagine the whole entire visibility of
the Universe is gone from you. This is the way He was born; in total
darkness. There was no light anywhere. Out of the total orbit of the
Universe of darkness there sparkled an atom of life.
Once upon a time, but don’t ask me when it was. How could that atom of
life make a record of its own creation? It could not write its own
creation, the record of it, because He was the First, there was no
recorders around Him. He was First to record His Ownself. How long was
that? We can’t tell, we weren’t there. He was the only One in the whole
entire dark Universe. He had to wait until the atom of life produced
brains to think what He needed. How long was that? I don’t know,
Brothers. But He was a Black man! Coming out of total darkness at that
time, we all could say that we are produced by a white God. But there was
no light nor even any white anywhere, there was All Darkness. So God
revealed to me. In that darkness, which had no end to it there — that
Darkness Created an atom of Life, and the Color had to be Black as there
was no light, therefore, it had to be the Color of the thing that Created
it! All Praise is due to Allah!
Hating Black, the late ‘minute – man’ came yesterday and turned you into
a fool. You have been here so long that the record could not be kept on
planets. They couldn’t write it on the planets and make it stay there.
Only you planned to betray the time that life had been in the Universe.
That’s all. You hat Black and are out here trying to kill me because I
teach you your Natural Self. “I don’t like Black.” White people made you
hate Black. Not so much they hated Black, they wish today that they were
Black. Oh, yes, they do. I receive lots of letters from White people
wanting to join and follow me, lots of them. They are wise.
How could they (White people) teach you to love Black when their Black
God (Yakub), who made them, made them by nature to deceive you? How could
they have ruled if they had taught you who was the Natural ruler? They
can’t teach you today that you are the people, the First and the Last.
They can’t say that in that sense because they know you will say, “Well
then, I think it’s about time to make you the last.” Don’t think White
people are fools. They are wise. It’s you who are the fool. Don’t take
them for nothing like ignorant people. They are wise people. They are
gods of their own world. This is true. They were made to be gods of their
own world. This is the truth. They have proved that they are gods of
their own world. Everything that they want, they can bring it before
their people and tell them “Here it is.” Whatever idea that they created
in their minds that is necessary for their own life to live here on this
planet, they bring it into perfection. But you don’t have that creative
mind, that’s a creative mind they have. It was taken from you 6,000 years
ago to allow them to build a world after their own thoughts. I say, my
friends, you won’t believe it if I keep talking to you about your own God.
Now let us take a look at the white God and the Black God. The Black God
produced Himself, He’s Self-created. Then that Black God made the white
man. He didn’t create him. He made him from Himself. If He had made him
or given him power to create himself, He could never rule him. He is
doing a hard job at it now. The Bible teaches you in Genesis that God
said; “Let Us make man.” I want you to wake up. Well, if somebody is
talking about making a man, why did He use Us?” The Holy Qur’an says; “We
made man.” We! There’s no difference in “Us” and “We.” Who is that “Us?”
Who is that “We?” You say, God made the man. Well, God did make the man.
But why did He have that “Us” and “We” around him? Because that’s
impossible now. God can’t make a man without help now because the law of
Nature, Creation, won’t allow Him to do so. So it takes an “Us” now. It
takes two people to make a man. Therefore, the Bible and Holy Qur’an
plainly teach you, “Us” and “We” made him; did not create him, but made
You don’t say that you created this metal here because the essence of it
is out there in the earth. You didn’t create that. But you take it and
melt it this, the metal, out of something like stone or sand. You can
scoop it up down there and sift it — but it was all ready out there.
Then you make whatever you want to from that metal. But, now, go and
create something! As the Holy Qur’an says, The white race cannot create
anything. They don’t argue with you about what they cannot do, but they
know that they were given power as gods to rule you for the past 6,000
years and they have done that. They have built for you the necessities of
life. They made clothes for you and me. They built houses for you and me.
They got our bread from the Earth and gave it to us because they were the
gods, not because they were so kind and good to us, but they must rule as
a god. They must give the people the necessities of life because they are
the gods. We had no other god to look forward to. Our God was put to
sleep to let the white god rule. How could the white man rule if the
Black man is going to rule while he rules? The Black man is self -
created. Two Gods cannot serve at one time. Think that over.
Let’s now consider this a little deeper. In the first place, one God was
the God of the Universe. In the last place, one God is the God of the
Universe. Everything that is of life and everything that is of metal or
everything that is matter in the Universe came from Him. He created it!
The Holy Qur’an says to the white race; show Us what you have created?
What part of the Universe have you created? None, none, no part! Well
then, if you didn’t create all of this that you are living off, why not
serve Allah then? He said, “I can’t serve Him. You made Him; You made Him
Black, and You made me of clay. And I just can’t bow to that. I wasn’t
made like that. You didn’t make me to serve Black. you made me to serve
my white self and made Black serve me until the day that they are raised
up into the knowledge of me. That will be the end of me then.
Who, I say? Never has this kind of teaching been poured into your ears
since the Earth was or the Nation was. I teach you not of prophets, but
of God! No, no, no. I am not preaching of Isaiah and Moses and others.
Those are prophets. I am bringing to you the knowledge of God Himself!
The Black man’s God. Why do you reject the Black God when the Black God
is Your God? The Black God made the white god! Why do you reject Him?
Long before ever there was — as the old people use to tell me when I was
a little boy — a when and a where, He was God. I bear witness today.
Just think it over; a small atom of life rolling around in darkness.
Think it over. Building itself up, just turning in darkness, making its
Let’s go into it. Do I have any proof of this? Yes sir! He made Himself
into total darkness. He put His Ownself turning, turning on His own
Timetable in the Black womb of the Universe. He started rotating. He
demands every life that comes into the Universe today to start turning
first. “Over to Me, for I had that to do myself.” “Now, I am going to
see, that every life that comes into this Universe, comes out of total
darkness — every life!” Yes, sir! It must come out of total darkness.
Out of the womb of our mother did we come. We were created there out of
the sperm that come. We were created there out of the sperm that was
emitted into that total dark room, the womb. It took that to make that
child. He couldn’t be made in the light. He must be made in total
We must know ourselves, we must know the Nature of Life. We must know the
law of Life before ever we can say that we are Masters.
Now, if by nature, we are born in total darkness, think it over. And if
by nature, life brings us out of darkness, and if, by nature we brought
light from out of total darkness, and if, by nature, we can think through
darkness, and bring light out of that darkness by our own brains, we did
so with the white race.
Look right into the sperm of life and find him — here’s an unalike. Take
it! Separate it! Your first separation from the white and Black was done.
Now you say, “No separation will settle it.” It won’t settle it with you,
maybe, Mr. Fool, but it will as once upon a time you could not see out of
Darkness. Now, today, you can’t see out of Light.
Who was it that did this? Was it a white god or a Black God? It was a
Black God! That is Who did it. He had taken His Universe, (think it
over), and engulfed it with the path of light that you call the Milky
Way. Think that over. He engulfed His own Universe with nothing but a
path of Light. He made the lights so close to each other that the light
of this one never stops before this one ties his light in with that one.
It was a whole path of nothing but light, a belt around His Universe. He
thought so much of His Earth, He loved His Earth so well, that He took
His own Earth and divided the live planets rotating around it with lights
– stars, Think it over. About 600 — million miles out from this Planet,
He has a region of stars that divides the other planets from these inner
planets. He put stars. Think it over. He made a crown for Himself out of
the Earth with stars. “This is My House, and I want to put a crown around
it with stars.” You tell me you don’t like the Black God!
He speaks, brothers, His Desires come to pass. He takes His Enemy, fold
him up with the power of nature, and makes him beg to be let go. He
speaks t His treasures of snow in the North. He tells them “Roll down on
My Enemy.” Here they come! He lifts up the clouds from the Earth that He
made and the water that He made on it and bears them up to a certain
height and tells them to pour it back down. Can you do that? This is the
Black man doing that. He drowns out His Enemy, floods His enemy out,
takes His Sun. “I made you, Ball of Fire, 853,000 miles in diameter. Sun,
go out there and burn up the crops, they don’t like Me. Burn up that
grass out there that their cattle are eating.” And the cattle begin to
grit their teeth towards the Sun, begging for more rain. The Sun says, “I
have orders from my Master, settle it with us.”
What hopes have you in the future of the White race? I want you to tell
me that. Write it to me: 4847 S. Woodlawn, Chicago, Illinois. Write it to
me. What hopes do you see? Today right at this hour, they are destroying
themselves. They are fighting trying to bring about Peace, and there is
no peace for them. They are talking Peace, but the Old Prophet says:
“While they talk Peace, the sword reaches to the sword.” It’s going on.
Do you see any future with them? They don’t have any here nor there. The
time of that clock has run down, and the hand is stuck on six.
I am not trying to make mock, nor am I trying to be happy in that way
because of their destruction. Their destruction means your destruction in
the condition you are in. You are a disbeliever, and that means you will
be destroyed. The thunder of war is now engulfing civilized Earth like a
belt on a man’s body. Nowhere is there a sign of Peace but in the Nation
He created the Heavens and the Earth. How did He do it? First, He created
Himself and He was Like of Himself. He emitted light from the live atom
of Self. And they still can do that. They can crown you with light.
I say, my friends, wake up. The Black man does this. He creates as light
out of darkness where there was no light and calls forth light to come.
“I am here, and all around Me is darkness. I need a Light.” The Sun,
having come into existence, started to shine. He didn’t have to go get
wood, coal or gas. He just said, “Come on Sun.” She refused to stay back,
and She brought Him warmth — heating that dark Universe, and then giving
Him Light. Later, another One says, “I think I need another Light over
here. There, Be a Light.” They kept on saying, :”There, be a Light.”
Until they filled the space with so much Light that you can’t find a
telescope that will take you to the wall of darkness. You can’t see out
of Light. “I must not disobey my Master one second.”
The cattle say, “We’re dying for grass.” Allah says, “Yes, but if the
rains come, and you fill your belly full of grass, you will fatten. And
the Devil will eat you. Then the Devil will rob the poor man of price for
you that he didn’t feed. I fed you! He won’t give Me credit for growing
his corn, his hay, and producing your food that you may be fat in his
stalls. But he will take you and set you on the market for a high price.
And My poor People are begging for your flesh. But I have got to stop
your flesh in order to stop him. Burn them up! They don’t believe in Me.
They didn’t create the Heavens and the Earth. They didn’t create you,
little animal. I created you, I caused you to grow! I put water in the
Earth for you. I put food in the Earth for you. But you are fattening off
what I give to you, and he is commercializing on My Own Property and
causing My People to suffer.”
We went over the country trying to buy beef -cattle to sell to
ourselves. He (the white man) says, “No, I am not going to cut one penny
for you even if you buy a hundred – million tons — the same price.” He
goes down in the South, he does, sits, looks over our people’s herd and
crosses his legs, “Bring them on here. Oh yes. I will give you so much
for that.” Don’t even tell them to weigh them. “Oh, yes, I’ll give you
$200.00 for them.” Think that over.
But when he gets them in the North, he says: “You will not smack your
jaws on this beef until you pay me my price.” Getting it for probably 10
cents a pound on its feet, he is selling it for 45 cents and 47 cents
wholesale. Then you have to sell it for 55 cents to $1.65 per pound to
try to get anything out of it. I say, let us unite! Build up our own
The white man makes it impossible for you and me to live in Peace
Together. He robs us until we have to lay down on his doorstep and beg
him for existence. I say the day has arrived that we are going to get up
from your doorstep. Regardless to what the cost, we must get up! We have
to raise us some cows. We have to raise up some sheep.
Let them go to work and multiply. When they multiply, let us take them
and eat them ourselves and feed our people on them. The time is here that
we must do for Self. Stop laying at the white man’s gate, begging him. He
sayss you are free. Show him that you can take this freedom. Make good of
it for Yourself by uniting and doing something for self. Go to Your Black
God. Stop looking for a white god to take care of the Black people. They
just don’t do it. It is not in their nature to do these things. They are
not going to make you independent. No, I should say not. If you get
independent, you will have to do that yourself!
You are no national; you are no citizen of this country! The only citizen
here is white. You are not American; the only American is white. You
can’t be American unless you are white. But you can be a slave for the
Brother, I don’t mean to make you feel bad. Mr. Politician, who thinks
you are smart and know the law, I don’t want you to think that I am
trying to make fun of you. But you are yet ignorant to the fact that you
are not a citizen. You are not a National man. National means “to be
citizens of that country,” but not a slave of that country; and
especially not to a foreign slave — he comes from abroad! Think that
“Well, I was born here.” Yes, there are many people born here, but they
have a country that they are citizens of. You have to make yourself now a
citizen of Africa, you native country. You can’t go back there calling
yourself “Mr. Willie Jones.” You can’t go to Africa today and get good
friendship with them. They are afraid of you. They say that you are just
another white man under a Black man’s skin. They don’t want you. But if
you say you are a Muslim, they want you — they spread out their arms for
you if you say you are Muslim. We know. We have been there. Our Secretary
here, and my son standing here, and myself, we have been there. They are
visiting me almost weekly. I have asked them right before my own family
and others there at the table with us, “Would you take them if they were
Christians?” They say “No.” They don’t want any Christians. This is what
has ruined their country — Christians!
You say that Christianity is your religion and it was the religion of God
and Jesus. You are just as silly as you can be! If you read your
Revelation, you will find out how Christianity came about. Read it in the
Bible, that last little Book. If you don’t understand it, come to me. If
I tell you for understanding, and if I miss it, I will give you $10,000
out of my Brother’s vest pocket — paper lined.
You nurse the Bible. You nurse the enemy of the truth of the Bible. You
worship him while the Bilbe teaches you against worshipping the Devil.
Well, (you say) “He is all right with me.” How is he all right with you
when he’s not all right with your people? You can’t make yourself one of
them unless you graft yourself back into them. You’l still bear the seed.
I want you to remember this, my Friends. I am not making fun. I only want
you to know Your God — Your Black God. That’s all I want you to do. Just
know Your God. And I want you to know the white god.
Now, you say, Christianity is your religion. You don’t want anything
else. Offer you anything else and you would rather be an atheist now than
to accept anything else. This is the truth. “Oh I don’t believe in any of
An atheist, (he thought he was an atheist), came and had dinner with me
one day. And I laughed inside. I said, “Now, you poor fool, how can you
prove that you are an atheist?” And so, I looked at the man and started
talking with him. And when he went out, he admitted that he was a fool
for ever believing like that. You can’t be an atheist except if you are a
fool. But if you wake up and get wise, you can’t be an atheist.
My beloved Brothers and Sisters who are thinking yourselves Christian,
you are not Christians! You can’t be a Christian unless you are white.
That is the only race on Earth that is Christian; white people. I say,
today Christianity is in a awfully terrible condition. The Father, the
god, sitting in Rome, is in a terrible condition trying to keep his
Look at how they are now, demanding him to give them something new. Don’t
you see their Bible being fulfilled? And look at the name that the Bible
gives to that man — a Dragon. The Pope of Rome is spoken of in the Bible
as a Dragon. Think it over. And the people that he serves, as Beasts!
Don’t go out of here angry with me because I say what you wrote yourself.
This is what the white theologians and scientists of the Book or their
religion wrote themselves. I got hold of a little book once on the
argument between the Pope and Martin Luther over some of his symbolic
work that he was doing in the Bible. And they began to question what this
meant and what that meant. You would be surprised. I don’t have time to
go through everything in detail. But God has given me the knowledge of
the Book. And therefore, I wish to tell you that you are so wrong in
calling yourself Christian. You are so wrong! There are no Christians but
the white man.
I’ll tell you the true meaning of Christian which refers to us, the
Muslims. “Christian” means to be crystallized into one. They say, “We are
followers of Christ; that is why we call ourselves Christians.” Where are
your works if you are following Christ? And who is Christ? They say,
“Jesus Christ.” What Jesus Christ? Jesus wasn’t even a Christ back then,
2,000 years ago. According to the meanings of ‘Christ’ that name means
One coming in the Last Day or Crusher. Jesus didn’t do that. That is the
Mahdi who will do that today; the One whom we are representing to you;
The Great Mahdi; the Restorer of the Kingdom of Peace on the Earth.
You should remember that the time of wisdom, now, is coming for you. And
creative thoughts, now, are coming to you. And the God Who has chosen you
to be His People will teach you and lead you how to fashion them into
actual beings as the white man has done. Our creative thoughts were taken
from us until he (the white man) rules his world under his own creative
But he had to use the same material that Our Father put here. He (the
white man) wasn’t able to create his materials because everything was
already in the Earth. Therefore, when he was made, he had to use wha twe,
Our Fathers, had made to fashion him a kingdom of the material that was
all ready created. And now, when it comes to us worshipping the Gods, I
say: A Jesus, A Christ, A God, that Is Born for you and me today! Who is
He? He is what they call, “The Son of Man.’ Who is the Son of Man? And
why do they call Him that? Because He Himself is coming to Judge the
Original Man and the mankind.
The mankind is the white race. The Original Man is not a mankind. Don’t
get yourself mixed up in that kind of representing — all mankind. You
are not a ‘kind’ of a man; You are the Man! This is what I have been
teaching you here. You will try to take me to task, but you can’t because
you don’t know what material to use. As I say, I am teaching you of the
God, not of the prophets. I am the Last of them.
We want, and we must have, some of Our Good Father’s Earth — a place for
ourselves to live on; we must have it. We cannot live under or in this
other shadow; We cannot do that! It is time that we live ourselves, under
and in the shadow of our Own. All of this big old Earth here. Think over
how big it is. It’s a great big old Earth. They are trying to practice
birth-control over you. What do you look like accepting birth-control?
When has the Earth got too small for you? There is actually plenty of
Earth for us.
There has never been an exhaustion of the Earth or of the food that it
burns out; it goes back down and fertilizes the Earth without aid. But
[if] everybody wants to live in Chicago; naturally someone will get
hungry here. There is not enough food in Chicago to feed everybody. But
that is no reason to start killing babies; just to live in Chicago. That
is wrong; the Holy Qur’an teaches us Birth-Control is not even thought of
in Islam. If this is our Earth, and it is, we haven’t over-populated it.
We still have plenty.
You say, “China.” Well, China is a little grafted race of people, and
they are piled up there in that country. They can’t spread out so much
because they have a boundary to the race — the Red, Yellow, and the
White races, There is a boundary set for them. And this boundary, now,
has been jumped by them. This is causing trouble. This is why the
Original Owner decided He would take over His Part. When He takes over
His Part, there will be no part left for any other part!
Your Black God. Why shouldn’t you love Him? Look at how He made you to
verify the Truth that He is God. There was never One before Him. He made
the axis, the Heavens, the Earth, and the spheres that float around the
Sun to bear Him witness — “I am the First.”
Look at the ball of your eye. Think it over. That ball of your eye is
white. all around is black. A Black sphere there, sitting, surrounded
with white. Not the white in the center of this ball; it’s Black here in
the center. But white around the Black. Right? He has made it like His
Universe — around Him is light, but He Himself is Black! All praises are
due to Allah. Look into His Eyes. His eye tells you who He is. And all
the offspring from Him bear witness that I came from that Black center
there in His eyes. They bear witness that their eye testifies to the
truth that it must have been grafted from yours because it is not the
equal of your eye. All praises are due to Allah! Would you trade your
beautiful Black eye, surrounded with the beautiful white, for a
green-blue eye? Would you do that? No, you won’t. It is a more beautiful
eye. Black, Clear Black, and clear white around it like His Universe He
made. He was Black inside, and then He said, “Let there be Light –”On
The Outside.” It is an unending teaching to teach you about your Black
He has power that He doesn’t have to go and fix up mechanically to
produce. But he says, “Be” and there it is — coming into space. Be!
There it is. Just orbits, just burst out of space. And in a few billion
or trillion years, there they are. He takes and puts Him a planet far out
on the edge of the power of the Sunlight, and warms it. They call it
Pluto or Plouton. Pluto is a scientific name representing ‘A Little
Fool.’ It comes back to you and me. For 400 years we are off from our
people, frozen – up in the power of the white man. we could not rotate
according to the light and power of the wisdom of our Own God. Pluto sits
out there, something like four -billion six-hundred-million miles from
the Sun; but still just a touch of the Sun moves her. Think that over.
The Sun has so much power in her that she just touches Pluto on Her
equator and makes her to make the same speed of rotation as all the other
planets. All praises are due to Allah! A sign of you and me. The white
race just knew she was out there in the same year that Allah found you
and me. A coincidence, you call it. No, no, Something esle was behind
Why are they just learning about the Moon? For 6,000 years, they have not
known anything about that dead piece of our Earth floating around this
one — until today. Why didn’t God let him up there years ago? Because
the Black God is going to make a change now. This is true. Whenever He
gets ready to destroy people, a powerful people who have ruled people;
the Holy Qur’an says: “He takes him up and lets him peep into some of His
Wisdom.” (Allah says,) “Look at this planet here, little Enemy, I made
it. Can you make one like it? (The Enemy says,) “No, Sir.” “Go back to
the Earth then, and pretty soon I’ll be down there and seep you off then.”
They (the white man) wish that the could make the Moon a resting place to
shoot their arrows at God and His people if they attack the Earth. They
talk about a way-station. Russia and America are after each other under
their skin. Russia is pretty smart; America is smart. We like them both
smarth like that. Russia goes and saddles the space right around the
earth to watch America! That is who she is watching. America wants to
watch God because she knows that Daniel said that she would be the One
that God would get first. She knows the Revelator, John, said that she
would be the first that God would destroy. The Fat Beast that everybody
is frightened of, kill him first, because He has killed my people! I
must tell you the Truth! The time is here!
It is written, but you didn’t understand it. I saw the Beast take him.
(Think over these prophecies) and the false prophets with it. I saw the
Fouth and dreadful Beast that rose up on the sea and land. I saw him take
him. Both prophets bear witness. He was taken, and his body was given to
the burning flames. That is the prophecy of Daneil. And I saw behind this
Beast the Ages of days sinning. Think that over. The color of his head
was white as snow; kinky like lambs’ wool. The color of his shows how
ageable he is. Think it over. He is an old, gray-headed man — been here
a long time! Think it over. His hair is not wooly, it is not animal-like;
it is curly hair, it balls up and twists up. Who is he? Daniel says, “He
is the Ancient of Days?” “He is the First, I can’t count His Days. I
don’t know the nuber of the years, but as He was of Ages’ Time. He is the
coming in after this one. Praise are due to Allah!
You don’t like your God? You don’t like Him? You don’t want a Black God.
That is Who Daniel said is going to rule. Priases be to Allah. Let us
love Black. I love Black. A color that you can take and put anywhere -
even the North pole and it will be the same! Put it on the Equator, put
it in the jugles of Africa, in the hottest zone of our planet — it is
the same. But all other colors fail when changing them into various
zones, but not Black. Why should Our God, Our Father, created Himself a
color that would change by the climatic conditions of His Planet? You
have the best color! You have the best eyes! You have the best teeth! Oh,
no. But they’re robbing you of them — mechanical teast, putlling out
your teeth, and putting all types of dope around and in the gums,
destroying those pearly-white teeth; the most beautiful teeth in the
human head. All praise is due to Allah!
I say, “love Black.” I say, get together Black, and unite, Black as never
before. They try to destroy the beauty of Black and have just about done
so. And they look at you and laugh. But, still go out there today –
right now –and you will see every color out there looking at the Black
woman. They want her! She’s the best walking in the Sun! We’re going to
take her; we’re going to tie her up at home. We know she is the best,
We’re going to tie here at home and set the bedsteads on her if necessary
to keep her there! We’re not going to let her run rampant — not like
wild animals. She is too good, she is too beautiful!
I say, love your God. He is a Black God and He is forever and forever.
There is no such thing as trying to destroy the Black man. You can’t do
that. It is impossible. One of Our God-Scientists, 66 trillion years ago
God taught me, tries His best to satisfy His mind by trying to destroy
us. But we are here today, and we see His idea right up there — they
call it the Moon. That s what He tried to do. Now there is no life on
that Moon. He didn’t allow anyone to be left to write His days of Himself
and His great Wisdom of Himself. We wrote it! We will do the same by you.
You won’t be able to write our doom, but we can write yours. All is st
for this thing — before you ever were created or made. He looked into
you before you were born, saw you thoughts, listened to what you would be
saying today and saw your works.
We just fold up our own arms, and sit down, and wait for Time. Allah
said, “They just waited They’re so glad that the day has come now that
they can show you now that the Black man is God!”
This is a day and time that you should know God. There are two on the
scene at the present time: And evil God and a good God. When we say
“Allah,” that Name means God and covers all Muslims. All Muslims are
Allahs, but we call the Supreme Allah the Supreme Being. And He as a Name
of His Own. This Name is “Fard Muhammad.”
“Fard” is a Name meaning an independent One and One Who is not on the
level with the average Gods (Allahs). It is a Name independent to itself
which actually means One whom we must obey, or else He detroys us. This
honorable, Majestic, Person comes in the last day. The reason why we call
Him the Supreme Being is because He is Supreme over all beings and or is
wiser than all. The Holy Qur’an teaches: He is wiser than them, meaning
al the Gods before and all who are now present.
Now, the Just and Righteous One is on the scene to take His place to rule
the people in righteousness.
Rember, Allah means Gods. Many Muslims go in this Name. All Muslims go in
the Divine Supreme Being of Names from Him. The meaning of these Names
are Himself. The Bible teaches you and me that He would give us His Own
Names, and this, we are receiving.
You have the white man’s name, and the white man’s name is not to live. I
don’t say that just here alone, but I will say it in London. I’ll say it
in any part of the Earth I go, and they will bear me witness. That’s why
they don’t care what they are called. You can call white men fish. You
can call them cat. You can call them lion, birds, bees, anything – he
doesn’t care because he knows his name is not going to live anyway — it
is the end of him! He cannot go in the Name of God; these names such as I
am called by live forever. It’s me – not a name just called by me.
Muhammad — that name will live forever. The meaning of it is: One that
is praised, and praised much. It will live; tha tis God’s Name. And your
Bible says, “He will give to you and me His Name, and all that take His
Name, they shall live.” So all that have taken the name of the Enemy of
God, they were seen going down in a lake of fire with him.”
I warn you to join with me. I warn you that is (the fire) is not going to
be ten, fifteen, or twenty years from now; it is going to be soon!
Have you ever seen times like they are now? A President going, running
all over the world find peace for his people. He may mean well, but that
doesn’t mean anything to the Finger of Time that wrote it and is saying
in his writing that: Mr. white man, the year 1914 was set as your end.
And you will have a short — a little short stay–and that little short
stay, after it’s done, will be it. When America comes out of Viet Nam,
don’t shout — the big trouble is just beginning.
They can’t help it. Don’t hate them because they are devils. One of your
Gods made them like that. I don’t hate a white man just because he is a
devil. He can’t help himself. He was made like that, and I cannot remake
him. The Sun is setting; I can’t remake him — it takes too long, 600
years. It took our Brother 600 years to make him. Six days, there in the
Bible, means 600 years. Everyday there represents 100 years in making the
man. Now to make or graft him back into that which he was grafted out of
would take another 600 years. Why, Brother, would could build on our
planet many many millions of babies. You don’t have to graft anybody. We
make them plenty babies. In 600 years, there would be so many babies that
there would be babies’ babies. We don’t have to graft anybody to you.
They haven’t been that good for us to graft them!
Be sure to get onto your own kind; that is if you want to live!– the
Black people and under the Black God Who believes in Mercy, Justice,
Equality and Peace. I am not begging you now because it is immaterial to
me. I can get a whle Nation besides you. I can! He (Allah) has offered
that to me. He said, “If not One goes with you or believes you, Muhammad,
come on and bring Me the Keys, and you and I will go.”
Don’t be too proud of yourself, Mr. Politician. Don’t be too proud of
yourself, Mr. Black Educator. What are you looking forward to–to keep
you going? I think they’re knocking the pillars out from under you. Don’t
be too confident and proud Mr. Preacher. I think your Bible is going to
It is not predicted in your Bible that somebody will come outside of
America to lead you! Right here, under your feet, will rise up that man
who will lead you. These people have no knowledge much of themselves. I
am raised up here to teach you of yourself and others and of the God Who
created the Heavens and Earth and His Powers — and I am not alone. I say
to you, don’t forget! Try and join onto your own. Let’s go and get some
of this Earth that we can call our Own. Let’s build a Kingdom of our Own.
I say that to you.
Moreover, I pray Allah that we die not unless we are Muslims. Give you
families, your babies my best love. Tell them the Messenger’s praying
that they grow up in the Faith of their Black God, Allah; and in His True
Religion, of entire submission to His Will — Islam; and that they live,
as we live, in the Faith of Allah.
