Teachings Concerning Our Saviour
By Messenger Elijah Muhammad
Reprinted From the Pittsburg Courier May 26, 1959
Allah came to us from the Holy City Mecca, Arabia, in 1930. He used the name Wallace D. Fard often signing it W.D. Fard. In the third year (1933). He signed his name W.F. Muhammad which stands for Wallace Fard Muhammad. He came alone. He began teaching us the knowledge of ourselves, of God and the devil, the measurement of the earth, other planets and the civilization of some of the planets other than Earth.
He measure and weighed the earth and its water, the history of the moon, the history of the two nations that dominate the earth, black and white. He gave the exact birth of the white race, and the name of their God who made them, and how, and the end of their time. The judgment, how it will begin and end.
He taught us the truth of how how we were made slaves, and how we are kept in slavery by the slave masters’ children. He declared the doom of America, for her evils to us was past due, and that she is number one to be destroyed; but her judgment could not take place until we hear the
He declared that we w ere without the knowledge of self or anyone else, and had been made blind, deaf, and dumb by this white race of people, and that we must return to our people, our God and His religion of peace (Islam), the religion of the prophets. We must give up the slave names of our slave masters and accept the name of Allah (God) or one of the divine attributes. Give up all the evil doings and practices and do righteousness or be destroyed from the face of the earth.
He taught us that the slave masters had taught us to eat the wrong food, and that this wrong food is the cause of our sickness and short span of life. He has declared that he would heal us, and sit us in Heaven at once, if we would submit to Him, otherwise He would chastise us with a sever chastisement until we did submit, and that he was able to force the whole world into submission to His will. He said that He loved us (the so-called Negroes), his lost and found so well that he would eat rattle-snakes to free us if necessary and that He has power over all things.
I asked him, “Who are you, and what is your real name?” He said, “I am the one that the world has been expecting for the past 2,000 years.” I said to him again, “What is your name?” He said, “My name is Mahdi; I am God, I came to guide you into the right path that you may be successful and see the hereafter.” He described the destruction of the world with bombs, poison gas, and finally fire that would consume and destroy everything of the present world.
Not anything of it (the present world of white mankind) would be left. Those escaping the destruction would not be allowed to carry anything of it out with them.
