Farakhan is misled and is misleading the people

Reader comment on item: Louis Farrakhan Is Not a Muslim
in response to reader comment: The Most Important Flaw in Farrakhan's Faith

Submitted by Muhammad Ja'farud-deen Siddeeq (United States), Apr 26, 2008 at 12:16

I was in the Nation of Islam for eigth years until I read the Holy Quran: Chapter Ikhlas, The purity of Allah's essence or God's being. In Yusuf Ali's translation's commentary, he mentions a word "anthropomophism" which meaning include attributing human characteristic to God (Allah). This is the fallacy of man made religion.

Man is a physical being that occupies space and time etc. An absolute being, a supreme eternal being does not need anything for its existence. A man "God " creates problems, racism. ethiticity etc. People want their God to be white, black, yellow, brown, caucasion, asian, african etc. Farakhan's racist concept of God, as taught by Fard or Elijah Muhammad, that the black man is god and the white is the devil is the antithesis of what white theologians taught in white christanity from their own book "the bilble" which they admit are full of contradictions. They say the white race was first created 6000 years ago and the black race was from the cursed seed of Ham, one of the sons of Abraham. The reality is that man created god in his image. Can an overgrown sperm drop create the sun, moon stars, atoms, electrons, protrons, etc., I don't think so. To beget in bibical terms means to have sex and to be begotten is to be born from a sexual relation.

The Quran says Jesus the son of Mary (may God bless them) was created by His word "Kun fayakun i.e., Be and He became" chapter 3:59. After coming to this revelation I promise Almighty God I would never follow anything blindly again. Thus was the beginning on my long journey for truth and spiritual enlightment. I became a Sunni Muslim and studied the four schools of thought and excepted the Shafi school of thought because I believed that his teachings was closest to the Prophets (S.A.) teachings. MY further studies led me to look into another school, " the Shi'ah". and that's another story.
