THE WORST IS YET TO COME

The Messenger MTTBM

By ELIJAH MUHAMMAD
Messenger of Allah

Originally printed in The Muhammad Speaks Newspaper, September 12, 1969

THE people of America are approaching the doom of the country that was once known as America. The doom of America is not something that is unforeseen. The average scholar and scientist knows of the coming doom of America and the ignorant feel it.

THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT is trying to be honest about it, but the average citizen just cannot agree with the President when he tells them that the government will not be able to do the things that the government has been previously doing. He means just that; and it is true.

FIGHTING the prolonged war in Asia thousands of miles away from the American border…supplying hundreds of thousands and millions of men with three meals a day and continually supplying them with clothing, ammunition modern weapons of war and other war material and equipment and the transporting of men and material to foreign territory; this takes billions of dollars out of the country.

AMERICA is being drained in her effort to keep one and one-half million (1,500,000) men at sea with her navies set for battle. The loss of money and war-planes runs into millions and billions of dollars. The enemy daily is causing valuable planes to drop out of the sky… some of them are rendered unfit for scrap-iron.

TO bring about a cessation of war now, all of this money and effort lost. You cannot hope for a prosperous government on the same terms as those of peace-time.

THE President, who is the chief thinker and guide for his people and country is warning you and me of what we now may expect.

YOU do not want a war, but you do want a big salary. One or the other or both has to go. You must not forget the old prophets who prophesied of this time and the condition of this time.

YOU cannot make the old prophets liars. You are too proud to mention their Word and the God Who Gave the Word to them. It is written in the book of Revelation in the Bible that the wicked blasphemed the very Name of God at the very time that they were suffering under His Divine Plagues.

THE country of America is now being Divinely Plagued and hundreds of millions of dollars are needed for reparation of damage caused by storms and other catastrophes and revolution.

THERE IS dissatisfaction and disagreement going on hourly between citizen and citizen and between heads of state and the government, but THE WORST IS YET TO COME.

THERE will be no jobs with high salaries paid to men. There will hardly be any jobs at all. A very small percentage of the people will be employed.

THE war will continue in Europe after America is out of Asia. America must come out of Asia or be thrown out with greater loss. America will be deprived of every post that she has outside of the borders of America. She will have to fight to keep her posts outside of America and after fighting she will lose the posts and the money which she used to finance her hopeless fight to hold them.

AMERICA’S out-posts will fall one by one and what few men she has left will return to America but they will not have the power to ever again set up a powerful and respected government.

AMERICA will come to shame and disgrace. To advise America to throw away all of her stock pile of war material and dismantle her army is asking America to commit suicide.

THE Jews in Palestine will finally be the great losers even with the backing of her friends, because it is Divinely Appointed that the Jews must come out of Asia or be destroyed in war.

REMEMBER the prophecy of Jesus to the Jews…the sign of which would serve as a warning to the Jews to flee for their lives. (Bible Lk. 21:20, 21.) “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.”

THE mountains could represent European governments who aid Israel in giving her a haven in some other country. Israel will never be able to stay where she is, in Asia.

ISRAEL has driven a million and a half (1,500,000) Arabs out of their homes and forced them to look for refuge in other places. Actually the country belongs to the Arabs and not to the Jews.

ISRAEL was never Divinely Given any land in Asia. Europe is the home of Israel. The white race was Divinely Given 6,000 years to live in Europe. The other parts of the earth where you find the white man living, were taken by force and deceit. Only Europe was Divinely Given to the white race. They took other parts of the earth by force and by force it will be taken away from them. The white race and their authority among the people will be destroyed.

ALL of this my Black Brother make the situation regarding jobs, hopeless for you. My Black Brother, it makes bread scarce for you. And even water, in places.

IN destroying the rule of the old world over Original Black People, we face the worst conditions that any living people have faced since man was on the face of the earth. However, the rule must be restored to the Black People, for they are the Owners of the earth.

MUCH tricknology is used by the white man to deceive the Black Man and cause the Black Man to suffer destruction with the white man.

THE white man is Given the Divine Freedom to trick and to take any one he can with him, to the doom of the white man. Allah (God) is not going to deprive the white man of the chance to take you and me with him through deceit and falsehood. If the white man succeeds in taking you and me to his doom with him it is to the gain of the white man; and your and my loss.

YOU cannot obtain good from the white man. You can try to force blood to run out of a turnip, but this does not mean that you will ever get blood out of a turnip. There is no blood in the turnip.

I SAY to you Black Brother [and Black Sister], who have limited knowledge of today and tomorrow, you would be wise to follow me [My Teachings and NOT FARRAKHAN]. I have the key to your salvation.

I have the Power of Allah (God), the heavens, and the earth and the whole universe on my side to help get you in and onto your Own. You will find no future with the white man. You may beat the turnip, but you will find no blood in it, for the turnip is still a turnip.

Black Brother [and Sister], flee to Allah (God) for your refuge and follow me (My Teachings) for a future, otherwise you are doomed. THE WORST IS YET TO COME.

BAKING SODA AND VINEGAR

BISMILLAHI RAHMANI RAHIM

baking soda and vinegar

As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Dearly Beloved Beautiful and Beloved Asiatic Black Queens!
(Peace Be Upon You)

I am going to share with you a housekeeping secret that is probably as old as the products pictured above. When I lived with my Grandmother, she used to have me put baking soda down the shower drain, followed by vinegar and finished off with boiling hot water.

I used to hate this chore, but now that I have my own place, I realize what a valuable lesson she was unwittingly instilling in me. A couple of years after I moved in (maybe less) I had to have a plumber come in and clear my drains in the kitchen sink.

Then I remembered this tip my Dear Beloved Grandmother had me perform. Now, I have been doing it every few months since then and have never had another problem and it’s been three years.

This will work in any kind of drain. Probably even your toilet.

Johannesburg – It was petrol bombs, tear gas and bricks as DA’s attempt to march for “real” jobs came to a screeching halt. A sea of blue t-shirts confronted by a dash of red [copy cat] berets turned unpalatably sour, consequently wreaking havoc across the streets of downtown Jozi.

Amidst all the drama and controversy, what was strikingly vivid was the absence of white DA comrades, although the ANC is still very adamant that DA is predominantly a “white” political party. Like a small drop of bleach stain on a black fabric, DA leader, Helen Zille, was the only white person in attendance, flanked by [her almost white] Lindiwe Mazibuko, alias “glorified tea girl”.

CHAPTER 78

AN ECONOMIC BLUEPRINT

bar1e.gif (231 bytes)

The Black man in America faces a serious economic problem today and the white race’s Christianity cannot solve it. You, the so-called American Negro, with the help of Allah can solve your own problem. The truth must be recognized by the black man. He, himself, has assisted greatly in creating this serious problem of unemployment, insecurity and lack. Before the black man can begin to gain economic security, he must be awakened from the dead and gain knowledge, understanding and wisdom which will enable him to follow my teachings. Islam and only Islam will point the way out of the entanglement of “want in the midst of plenty” for the followers of Islam, the true religion of the black nation.

Know thyself and be yourself. Islam makes a true brother to brother. If this be true, how can a believer (Muslim) be a true brother to another believer and boycott his brother and support the enemy? The believers in truth, Islam, must stop looking up to the white race for justice and take the following steps to correct this problem.

Acknowledge and recognize that you are a member of the Creator’s nation and act accordingly. This action, in the name of Allah, requires you, as a Muslim, to set an example for the lost-found, your brothers in the wilderness in North America. This requires action and deeds, not words and lip service.

The following blueprint shows the way:

1. Recognize the necessity for unity and group operation (activities).

2. Pool your resources, physically as well as financially.

3. Stop wanton criticisms of everything that is black-owned and black-operated.

4. Keep in mind – jealousy destroys from within.

5. Observe the operations of the white man. He is successful. He makes no excuses for his failures. He works hard in a collective manner. You do the same.

If there are six or eight Muslims with knowledge and experience of the grocery business – pool your knowledge, open a grocery store – and you work collectively and harmoniously, Allah will bless you with success.

If there are those with knowledge of dressmaking, merchandising, trades, maintenance – pool such knowledge. Do not be ashamed to seek guidance and instructions from the brother or sister who has more experience, education and training than you have had. Accept his or her assistance.

The white man spends his money with his own kind, which is natural. You, too, must do this. Help to make jobs for your own kind. Take a lesson from the Chinese and Japanese and go give employment and assistance to your own kind when they are in need. This is the first law of nature. Defend and support your own kind. True Muslims do this.

Because the so-called American Negro has been deceived and misled, he has become a victim of deception. He is today in the worst economic condition of North America. Unemployment is mounting, and he feels it most. He assisted in reducing himself to his present insecure economic condition. You, the black man, are the only members of the human race that deliberately walk past the place of business of one of your own kind – a black man – and spend your dollars with your natural enemy. The so-called American Negro has never in the history of America been known to boycott or criticize the white man as he does his own kind. He thus shows love for his enemy and hatred for his own kind.

A true Muslim would never boycott the place of business of his fellow Muslim or black brother. A true Muslim is proud of the success of his black sisters and brothers. He recognizes that their success is his success. He recognizes the law of Islam. If one brother has a bowl of soup you have half of that soup.

A Sound Economic Plan I

CHAPTER 83

A SOUND ECONOMIC PLAN I


The economic plight of the black people of this land has so long been neglected by so-called leaders that even our own people have forgotten its basic importance.

Our economic position remains at the bottom of the ladder because of this ineffective leadership and because so many of our people ignore the basic rules of a healthy economic life. We fail to develop self-leadership in economics.

We are in the midst of the so-called civil rights struggle and ferment among the black and oppressed reaches new heights. I shall list, critically, but constructively, the guide and outline which must be followed if this black nation of 22 million is ever to achieve true independence and equality.

We shall begin with these four points.

No. 1. Our knowledge of self, others, and the time should force us to become more prudent in our spending. Unnecessary spending by trying to keep pace with the wealthy of this country has done more to put us on the path of the “prodigal son” than anything else. Let us be taught how to spend and save by those of us who desire to see us out of poverty and want.

No. 2. Do not be too proud to meet together as leaders and teachers to discuss the solution of  “How to stop this reckless, down-hill fall of our people.”

No. 3. Not one so-called Negro leader seems to want a meeting with me to discuss the plight of our poor people in North America.

No. 4. I have set before you a program, according to the Divine Supreme Being and His Prophets. You have neither produced a better program nor anything to equal it. Your present plans are involved in one of the most disgraceful programs – especially you who boast that you are free and want freedom, Justice and equality with your slave-masters by sitting, standing and begging to be accepted as the brothers of those who, for 400 years, have brought you into your present condition, and have made you a people unwanted by the civilized nations of the earth.

No one wants foolish people who love everyone but themselves and their own kind; who would rather beg than go for self, or even ask the slave-masters to help them go for self. Such people, numbering into the millions, are on the road to destruction if their down-hill speed is not checked by Allah (God) and His Messenger.

HOW TO MAKE AN ECONOMIC PROGRAM SUCCESSFUL: It is very hard for an economist to plan a wise program and see his plans carried out, because the so-called American Negroes’ economics are controlled by the white man. The white man owns the country and the industry. He is manufacturer and producer of everything. Now, it is difficult to plan an economic program for a dependent people who, for all their lives, have tried to live like the white man.

The first step the so-called Negro wage-earners should take is to spend only when necessary and according to their income. They should save as much of their salaries as possible — weekly, biweekly or monthly. We, as wage earners, should always plan to save something from whatever we are paid. Do not become extravagant spenders like the rich, who own the country and everything in it. It is sheer ignorance for us to try to compete in luxury with the owners.

If we can save just five cents a day from our wages, 25 cents a week, $1 a month – that would mean $13 a year we could save in a national savings bank. We number around 22 million and approximately five million are wage-earners. If five million wage-earners saved $13 a year, this would mean $65 million saved out of our wages. At the rate of 25 cents per week, it would be painless. But the so-called Negroes do not have that in a national bank.

Let us see how much money we spend unnecessarily: Suppose we spent the same amount (25 cents a week) in tobacco (cigarettes, cigars, chewing or snuff dipping). But, of course, you will spend far more than that. Some people spend 25 cents per day for cigarettes alone. Let us say we spent the same amount (25 cents a week) on beer. Again the actual amount would be more. This means $65 million a year spent for beer and the same spent for whiskey, wine, cigarettes and cigars. We also spend unnecessarily on sports. You average the same on sports ($65 million). Another $65 million is spent in gambling – averaging five cents a day, 25 cents a week. This is just the minimum.

If five million wage earners saved just $47 per year, they could save $235 million dollars a year. And this figure would be far greater if we included extravagant buying of clothes, furniture and cars. Eating the hog, the Divinely forbidden flesh which keeps us filled with arthritis, rheumatism, high blood pressure and fever makes unnecessary doctor and drug bills. All of this wasteful spending should be checked and you will see within a one-year period that you have not saved one billion dollars, but several billions.

The economical way to use the money you save is first to buy farm land and produce your own food. You can raise enough cattle, sheep, cows and chickens by the thousands if you try following our program. We could cut down on our clothing bills – some of us by about 30 per cent – and yet be well-dressed. Again in this way we could build a national savings bank from deposits for ourselves, and invest our money in the purchase of necessary things for our nation. Then, you could cut down your present high cost of living.

Purchase real estate, buy farm and timberland. Convert the timber into lumber and build homes for yourselves as the white man is doing. Of course, he will have the authority over whether or not to sell the land to you. Get clay land. With marsh clay land and hill clay, you can make your own bricks. Bricks are inexpensive to make once you get your kiln built and tracks laid. The greatest expense would be coal or gas to fire your bricks. Build brick homes for your own people and sell them to your people at a very reasonable price.

Try and save your people from unnecessary high-price buying. Take your cotton to the mills and have it converted into lint. And take the lint to the textile mills and have it converted into cloth. You are very smart. We have many technicians among us who are about as smart as they come. Why shouldn’t we get together and produce something for ourselves?

Ask the government to help us go for ourselves. And if the government will not help us, although we and our fathers have been loyal and helped them to become and remain independent, then appeal to your own people to allow you to move in among them. I am sure that if you are a Muslim you can find a place anywhere on the earth.

We are the righteous and it should not be hard for us to do something for self if we unite. We do not need to unite and then go fight some other nations to get their country. No! That will not be necessary. Come follow me and I will show you how to do this without having to shed a drop of blood. Shedding blood for something that you are Divinely justified in having is not necessary.

It is a disgrace for us to have all this present trouble – standing around begging, quarreling and fighting with slave-masters over something that we can do for ourselves if only given a chance. This chance can be had if you go about it in the right way.
