VERSE 65: “And if thou ask them, they would certainly say: We were only
talking idly and sporting. Say: Was it Allah and His messages and His
Messenger that you mocked?”
VERSE 66: “Make no excuse, you disbelieved after your believing. If We
pardon a party of you, We shall chastise a party, because they are
VERSE 67: “The hypocrites, men and women, are all alike. They enjoin evil
and forbid good and withhold their hands. They have forsaken Allah so He
has forsaken them. Surely the hypocrites are the transgressors.”
VERSE 68: “Allah promises the hypocrites, men and women, and the
disbelievers the Fire of hell to abide therein. It is enough for them.
And Allah curse them, and for them is a lasting chastisement.” All of the
above listed verses are in Chapter 9 of the Holy Qur-an.
THE HYPOCRITES are very much hated ones by Allah, the Messenger, and
those who follow him. They come saying “I believe” and go out saying “I
do not believe” (Holy Qur-an, 2nd Chapter).
They are not satisfied with giving up the Truth themselves; they seek to
pull others away from the Truth. And, one of their greatest desires is to
make people to believe what they are rejecting (Allah, His messages and
His Messenger) are liars. This is what angers Allah – for the hypocrites
to call Him and His messages and Messenger liars and seek to kill the
Messenger, so that their (the hypocrites’) lies will not be made
manifest. But, this is like playing with fire and knowing not the burn of
SOME HYPOCRITES will say “Oh I believe in Allah, but I do not believe in
the Messenger – that he is really Allah’s Messenger. Here, again, they
err, because it is impossible for one to believe in either One – God or
the Messenger – and not believe in Both, for the Messenger is the only
source of communication and guidance for the people. So, rejecting the
Messenger is rejecting God, The Sender of the Messenger.
Malcolm’s fall should serve as a example to all hypocrites who wish to
scandalize and make mockery at Allah, His messages, and His Messenger.
Also, my brother, Karot’s fall served as a warning to the wistful and
proud leaders who want to take upon themselves the honor of the Messenger
of Allah, without being chosen by Allah.
HOLY QUR-AN Chapter 4 – Verses 142-146:
The hypocrites are said – in Verse 143-to be those who are wavering
between this and that, belonging to neither these nor those.
THIS IS TRUE. They hypocrite goes out claiming that he is with both
parties. He shows a false belief and friendship to both sides. And, this
makes him to be an insincere believer or friend to either side. When a
believer comes in saying that he believes; and then goes out saying he
disbelieves, then he lied at first and he lies going out. This is why a
hypocrite cannot be accepted by anyone as being sincere. After you have
accepted the truth and declared it to be the truth, if you who come over
to follow me to Allah turn your backs on the Truth, we have it in black
and white that you declare yourself to be a believer in Allah and His
Messages, and His Messenger.
In fact, you are declaring that you believe as the Messenger believes.
Then, he turns his back and calls Allah, His religion, and the Messenger
(who preaches that religion) a lie. So, he becomes the most hated person
by Allah. This is why Allah says that He will not guide such a one but to
the path of hell to abide in it. (Find this chapter in the Holy Qur-an).
CHAPTER 4 – Verse 145 says:
“The hypocrites are surely in the lowest depths of the Fire, and thou
wilt find no helper for them.”
BEFORE the coming of Allah, hypocrites of Islam could get away with
saying they believed and did not believe. But today, it is a mistake. A
disbeliever suffers the consequences of his disbelief almost at once. It
is due to the Presence of God, you cannot get away with trying to hide
falsehood. This is what He came for, to make manifest the falsehood so
that truth may triumph.
My followers who turn back suffer such anger and dislike of Allah almost
immediately due to the fact that God is present with me as never before
to any human being. for I am His first choice and the hypocrite does not
know and does not believe that he is really God Who was to come and has
come. And, if they believe He is the God, they yet do not believe that I
am His Messenger. This makes a disbeliever in both, as the Holy Qur-an
teaches, belief in One is belief in Both and disbelief in One is
disbelief in Both.
LIP PROFESSION – Holy Qur-an Chapter Two:
Verse 13 – And when it is said to them, Believe as the people believe,
they say: Shall we believe as the fools believe? Now surely they are the
fools, but they know not.
Verse 14 – And when they meet those who believe, they say, We believe;
and when they are alone with their devils, they say: Surely we are with
you, we were only mocking.
Verse 15-Allah will pay them back their mockery, and He leaves them alone
in their inordinacy, blindly wandering on.
IN VERSE 13 where the Hypocrite and disbeliever is said to be making fun
of the Muslims (the Believers), calling them fools that believe in the
truth, they are really the fools themselves for not believing as the
Muslims believe. But, they do not know that they are really the fools.
This is really mockery of self, when one is trying to mock another one
and the other one is more honored than the mocker. The mocker does not
know that which he mocks is more in honor than himself. But, yet he lies
when he meets those who believe (The Muslims) and says (We believe) and
when they are along with the devils (Verse 14) they say, “surely we are
with you. We were only mocking.”
THEY GO and tell the devils they were only mocking us, but really they
are with the devils or want the devils to believe that they are with
them, when they are not really with either one; the devils or the
Muslims. They lie to both the devils and the Muslims.
In the 15th Verse, Allah says He will pay them back their mockery and
this pay-back if followed by these words; “He leaves them alone in their
inordinacy, blindly wandering on.” This is the consequence of their lying
to both sides; the Muslims and the devils. Allah leaves them blind,
wandering, thinking they are going rightly.
THE 18TH Verse of Chapter Two refers to them as “deaf, dumb, and blind,
so they return.” They do not return to light of truth that it may guide
them in the way of truth, so that they will share the reward of truth.
But, rather, call the truth a lie, and falsehood the truth.
The worst of all is to say you believe in Islam and then later say you
disbelieve. We must remember again and again, that Malcolm was an answer
for all hypocrites for he came in believing and then went out saying he
disbelieved and made mock of God, Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom Praise is
due forever, and His Messenger, Elijah Muhammad.
I WARN you, do not play with this truth that I am teaching that came from
God, lest you suffer the fire of hell in this life and not after you are
dead Even the Bible teaches you in Revelation (19:20) that the Hypocrites
and disbelievers were cast alive in a lake of fire with the devil. The
average of our people think this means spirits. You cannot burn up
spirits until you burn up what the spirit is in and the spirit of
disbelief is in a person; to destroy it, burn the person up, for there is
no spirit (that) has any power to do anything, unless it has something of
life from which to emit.
