All Human Beings are Equal in their Human Essence
By Imam W. Deen Mohammed
Jacobite idea to rule man is against Democracy
There is a great religion that you know very well they don't believe in any devil or satan in the picture we have for the devil or satan. They believe that there is only G-d and man; and man on the whole is unfit to protect his interest or the interest of the human community. This is against the idea of our democracy. Our democracy says that every citizen should be respected, the ranks of the public has to be respected and the government is accountable to its public and ultimate the power rests with the people to change their government to even change their form of government if they choose. This is the idea that is against the ideology that says, "Man can't be trusted."
You Muslims you should be happy that you are not in a different world, that you are in a world founded by the founding fathers and is a political order that respects the work of the common person and bases the plan for the government on the common life of the people, not on the elite group, not on a special class or special people. And it establishes the common people in their right to have their government, to check their government and actually change their government if they lose faith in the government and ask that a new government be formed.
This is what the founding fathers grant the common citizen, "We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal and are endowed certain inalienable rights. Among these is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Our government is founded upon that belief that all human beings are equal in their human essence or in their creation as human beings.
It took that idea some time to convert enough persons to it that they would not tolerate ideas or laws that went counter to that idea. Slavery of a particular people went against that idea, that great plan that was given to us by the founding fathers it lived to see slavery abolished. It lived to see discrimination against female, women abolished. And it hasn't lived to see the elimination of the oppression of the poor, we're still oppressed, but it is because of our deficiencies up here in our head. No law is legislating poverty for us, if we get our heads right we can work ourselves out of this situation.
Just take advantage of the freedoms, the opportunities that all of us are granted as citizens in these United States and be proud and have strength from that freedom, that freedom should give you strength and say, "I'm free to work with my life, I'm free to get together with the people of my neighborhood and form an organization to bring about better changes in my neighborhood. I'm free to address blight, filth, trash and whatever is giving my neighborhood a sore eye." Don't you know your political leaders will be very happy if you would organize and form groups to bring decency back to the minds of the residents of your neighborhood, decency, appreciation for a clean neighborhood? Don't you know you could relieve the burden of taxes on poor people in your neighborhood by not throwing out so much trash and throwing it all over the place and having the trash collectors come and do extra work in a black neighborhood? You can go to many of the white neighborhoods and others they don't have to work as hard, they don't have to do as much work, they don't need as many trucks, they don't pay as much for gas, the cost is much lighter on them.
We are living in a time of the conclusion of these great issues so if you want to survive you have to follow those leaders who are not following you in your weaknesses, demagogues who look to see what we have and then they come and tell you, "I'm your buddy, your homie," you like drugs in the neighborhood they never speak out against the drugs. You like violence and indecency they won't speak out against it; they will say only what they know you like to get into office. Those leaders if you follow such leaders you won't survive these times, these times are going to require that you measure up to your own responsibility that given to you by virtue of the fact that you are human just like everybody else is human.
Satan the whip, the punisher
Allah (swt) didn't make one a human and another a mosquito, a dog or something, we're all human in this body so we're going to have to measure up to our responsibility if we don't we're going to be eliminated by those forces that are already in place to eliminate those who won't measure up to their responsibility. What are those forces? I told you there was a whip, a punisher that is what the whip means, when he punishes you. He doesn't punish you directly, you can't see him, he doesn't appeal to your conscience and say, "Why don't you stop doing these bad things?" He just says, "They are losing their consciousness, they don't care anymore about moral life, they just want to be happy. It is just that we punish them with their own wickedness. Make sure that they have plenty drugs in their community, that is what they want. They like to be nasty make sure they get plenty of help to be nasty. See that they get some pornography in their neighborhood. Do they have a store selling pornography? Make sure they have it. The whole world has become playful, play minded. This is satan talking now. He says, "See that they get as much fun as they want, as they can take. They don't care anymore about common decency; give them vulgar figures, vulgar entertainers, half naked leaders in the entertainment world. Bring them down to sex life so they can't stand up to their responsibility, finish them off the population is too much of a problem. Look how much wealth it is going to generate, you use to just sell so many things, now we can see almost anything. We're going to have more money than we ever had feeding these sins of this unG-dly world." This is satan talking.
Jacobites they don't acknowledge his existence
Satan never acknowledges that he is the devil that is why one of these religions does not acknowledge that there is a devil, not even the existence of a devil.
If you had faith like many of us have men and women in religion you could be very successful. Bad times are not always times that are unfavorable. Sometimes bad times are the best times for good people. When everybody is looking you don't have much recognition, but when everybody is bad you are appreciated by good people those who retain their good life, keep their life in good condition they are very much appreciated by good people high and low, in power and out of power. So this is a good time for good people to make our efforts be known, come forward let your efforts be seen and know that you are working for the good life and you kept your faith in your Creator, your G-d. G-d is with us to raise the few above the many and if we achieve in our human excellence in these poor neighborhoods and succeed economically as well as spiritually we will be the greatest influence on this earth for bringing people back to G-d.
