—a global journey for divine unity with a warning of things to come!
“O community of jinn and men, did there not come to you messengers from among you, relating to you My messages and warning you of the meeting of this day of yours? They will say: We bear witness against ourselves. And this world’s life deceived them, and they will bear witness against themselves that they were disbelievers. This is because thy Lord would not destroy towns unjustly while their people are negligent.”-Holy Qur’an, Surah 6, verses 131 & 132

As I literally watched stunned and shocked, as have billions of viewers, over the unimaginable devastation wrought by Mother Nature’s thrashing of Islands, peoples and Lands contiguous to the epicenter of the massive 9.0 Earthquake and its aftermath of the Tsunami Disaster, I could not but think, could this happen to us as well surrounded by water on the other side of the world in America? I also reflected over the historical journey taken by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan on his last great World Friendship Tour, III spanning the globe in 1998, three years after the Historical Million Man March. What lies in the future for our Planet and the Human Condition with such a staggering toll of life and communities and properties having been destroyed already as we approach the celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Million Man March at the close of 2005?
With all the awesome tragedy that has befallen our Planet and its inhabitants since December 26th, there is yet a defining call for Unity on the basis of the Oneness of humanity from conscious people around the world. The Disaster that unexpectedly struck in this Southeast corner of our globe signaled a wakeup call to all. The political war that is being fought against the citizens of the world claiming to protect us from the “axis of evil,” is really a cover up to the centuries of abuse practiced by a world power scheme of European Nations with America at the head, who have ruled and oppressed the majority of man and mankind with hostilities and bloodshed since the beginning of their history. So it is now, at the height of their arrogance and aggrandizement of political power and prowess that heaven is now responding with an unrelenting backlash of Mother Nature’s Hand.
It has always been the warning of the Faithful Servants of God to their various peoples among the nations that blind worship of idols, whether men or jinn or material objects, will lead to a terrible and irreversible Divine Chastisement. Since this Event, almost all of the dominant World Faith Traditions and Communities have suffered in this grave catastrophe, Christian-Judeo and Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist and Jain and all others have succumbed to this Great Shaking as a Sign to Beware of the Great Vengeance and Anger of God from deviating from His Path of Devotion.
Reflecting over the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, there are many lessons to learn. There comes the realization that if one member of the human family is rejected and despised by the other members of that society, their religious convictions count for nothing. So in keeping with the beautiful Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, representing the so-called, “black sheep” (Black Nation) and rejected member of the Human Family, has compassionately extended his hand of friendship to all nations and peoples abroad in a diplomatic and spiritual mission during his three World Friendship Tours. I witnessed a portion of his journeys as a part of his 24 member delegation visiting among the many places on his agenda, the countries of Indonesia, within the circle of the Islands of Samatra, Borneo and Bali, as well as skirting the Bay of Bengal into the sub-continent of India in Bangladesh, and we touched parts of the land mass of East Africa and into areas of the Indian Ocean, which were so heavily affected by recent death and destruction.
Should this not be a wake up call for all of us on the Planet to appeal to world governments to cease their relentless wars of divisions and strife among mankind and seek the path of atonement and purification, reconciliation and peace? If the final warner is a Black Man, and he is, the descendent of slaves, is this not a foolish act to seek to destroy the messenger and abort the Message of Peace and Salvation intended by God for the whole of global humanity?
“And for all are degrees according to their doings. And thy Lord is not heedless of what they do. And thy Lord is the Self-sufficient One, the Lord of mercy. If He please, He may remove you, and make whom He pleases successors after you, even as He raised you up from the seed of other people. Surely that which you are promised will come to pass, and you cannot escape (it).”-Holy Qur’an, Surah 6, verses 133-135
