There's no God but Allah and The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad is His Messenger!
To begin, there is no religion of "Elijah Poole". Elijah Poole was a slave, while Elijah Muhammad was a FREE BLACK MAN. Although they possess the same physical form, they were not the same people...
With regards to Islam from the teachings of Supreme Wisdom versus the traditional Islam in Saudi Arabia, there is no REAL relation. Orthodox Islam isn't based on truth anymore, nor is it even based on the Qur'aan. They're religion is based almost entirely on the hadiyth and sunna writings, which are rumors of things the prophet Muhammad did, said, and/or permitted. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, through Master Fard Muhammad, redefined Islam, shaping it around truth, based on science, mathematics, history, and logical reasoning. He didn't teach blind faith and belief, he taught KNOWLEDGE. That's why his Teacher, Master Fard Muhammad, always said that the "new" Islam can be proven at no limit of time. Orthodox Islam, on the other hand, can't be proven, since it is entirely based on faith and belief. So, yes, the two systems are entirely different.
ON BEHALF OF MASTER W.D. FARD MUHAMMAD, HIS IS THE NAME OF ALMIGHTY ALLAH, TO WHOM ALL PRAISE IS DUE FOREVER; IN LOVING MEMORY OF THE LAST & GREATEST MESSENGER OF ALLAH, MOSES, WHO APPEARED IN THE PERSON OF THE MOST HON. ELIJAH MUHAMMAD (PBUH) OUR SPIRITUAL MOTHER, MARY OF THE BOOK AND; ON BEHALF OF THE MOST HON. SILIS MUHAMMAD, THE PROPHET LIKE MOSES, CHRIST, SOLOMON & JOSHUA, THE SPIRITUAL SON BORN OF MARY, HIS IS THE NAME OF THE SON OF MAN, THERE IS NO GOD (ALLAH) BESIDES THE HUMAN BEING MAN.
The major difference between so-called orthodox Islam today, and the Lost-Found Nation of Islam is that the Arabs believe in and teach of a spirit Allah (God). This is essentially the same belief and teaching of Christianity. The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad said:
"For thousands of years, the people who did not have the Knowledge of the person, or reality of God worshiped their own Ideas of God. He has been made like many things other than what He really is. The Christians refer to God as a "Mystery" and a "Spirit" and divide Him into thirds. One part they call theFather, another part the Son, and the third part they call the Holy Ghost; which makes the three, one. Thisis contrary to both nature and mathematics. The law of mathematics will not allow us to put three into one.Our nature rebels against such a belief of God being a mystery and yet the Father of a son and a Holy Ghostwithout a wife or without being something In reality. We wonder how can the son be human, and the father a mystery (unknown), or a spirit? Who is this Holy Ghost that is classified as being the equal of the father and the son?
The Christians do not believe in God as being a human being, yet they believe in Him as being theFather of all human beings. They also refer to God as He, Him, Man, King and The Ruler. They teach that God sees, hears, talks, walks, stands, sits, rides, and flies; that He grieves or sorrows; and that He is interested in the affairs of human beings. They also teach that once upon a time He made the first man like Himself in the image and likeness of Himself, but yet they believe that He, Himself, is not a man or human. They preach and prophesy of His coming and that He will be seen on the Judgment Day but is not man.They cannot tell us what He looks like, yet man is made like Him and in the image of God, and yet they still say that He is a mystery (unknown).
How can one teach the people to know God if He, himself, does not know God. If you try teaching theChristians that God is also a human being, they will say that you are crazy, that you do not believe in Godand that you are an infidel. In the meantime, while they admit that He is a Mystery God (unknown), theyteach not to make any likeness of Him; yet they adorn their walls and churches with pictures, images andstatues like human beings.
Can God be a Mystery God and yet send prophets to represent Himself? Have the prophets been representing a God that is not known (Mystery)? They tell us that they heard Gods voice speaking to them in their own language. Can a spirit speak a language while being an immaterial something? If God is notmaterial, what pleasure would He get out of material beings and the material universe? What is the basis ofspirit? Is the spirit independent of material?
Actually, who is that Mystery God? We should take time and study what has and is being taught to us.Study the word and examine it, and if it be the Truth, lay hold to it. To teach people that God is a MysteryGod is to teach them that God is unknown. There is no truth in such teaching. Can one teach that which hehimself does not know?
If one teaches a thing that he himself does not know, he can be charged with lying to the people. Theword "mystery," according to the English dictionaries, is something that has not been or cannot be -something beyond human comprehension. The unintelligent, or rather ones without divine knowledge, seemto delight themselves in representing the God as something mysterious Unknown.
Such teaching (a mystery God) that God is a mystery makes the prophets' teachings of God all false.There should be a law made and enforced upon such teachers until they have been removed from the public.
According to Allah, the origin of such teachings as a Mystery God is from the devils! It was taught tothem by their father, Yakub, 6,000 years ago. They know today that God is not a mystery but will not teach it."
