Reader comment on item: How Elijah Muhammad Won

Submitted by Glefit (United States), Aug 25, 2012 at 15:02

"Religiously, Farrakhan for his part has increasingly endorsed, if somewhat ambiguously, the reforms initiated by Wallace a quarter-century earlier. At their February meeting, specifically, he accepted the seventh-century Muhammad as the Seal of the Prophets. It remains to be seen, however, exactly what Farrakhan had in mind when he announced that "Allah sent Muhammad with the final revelation to the world."

This is written (in my humble opinion) to deceive people into thinking that Farrakhan himself no-longer recognizes Elijah as the Messenger of Allah, which could not be further from the truth. A prophet is a prophet, and a messenger is a messenger. Prophets are sent to prophesy of things to come hundreds and thousands of years in advance. Allah (God) has no need to send a prophet in the last days, for the world (system) is near it's end; only his final Messenger, from before His face, to prepare the way before Him (according to Malachi).
