With Allah’s Name the Merciful Benefactor, the Merciful Redeemer
From the notebook of Imam W. Deen Mohammed
Man's Shared Freedom Space...
Those who use their freedom are strong enough to respect what's important.
People avoiding their RESPONSIBILITY cannot be FREE.
Freedom is the reward for hard work.
In the wilds where ANIMALS are free, freedom is not protected. The SURVIVAL of "the FITTEST" is the LAW.
Although industrial man is thousands of years away from ANIMAL LAW, conditions can form in the freedom space of those who go about carefree and the ANIMAL LAW will be their dead-end street.
For freedom, the wilds had to be defeated. The first to be defeated were wild animals and unprincipled people.
Heavy responsibility was carried by parents.
Neighbors were not able to go it [alone]. Neighbors had to band together.
Working for common INTEREST, laws were put in place, public land was developed, schools were opened to have life assisted by practical knowledge.
To make it, to live through [these] RAW TIMES, neighbors worked as a FAMILY of partners in the RISE of CIVILIZATION.
Today, in modern times, to know the REALITY of populations surviving to have more, citizenship knowledge is indispensable.
Rights not understood cannot be vouchsafe and get the protection under the LAW.
Intelligent laws reached the public as HOME-GROWN benefits, like almost every other public good:
An Inherent [sense] of ownership is a human property belonging to the SOUL.
When the human mind accepts ownership as real, the powerful human soul supports the mind accepting ownership and respecting ownership.
Animals respect rights of the other animal...
Children insist their rights be respected: sharing freedom space in the home, in the bedroom, in the bed, etc.
Family life in the care of devoted females is where people should qualify for CITIZENSHIP.
"Citizenship" should bring to mind a certain BEHAVIOR expected of persons individually.
Civic minded community servants who have been awarded for "good citizenship," they know its MEANING: "the state of being vested with the rights, privileges, and duties of a citizen"... "the character of an individual viewed as a member of society ...behavior in terms of the DUTIES, OBLIGATIONS, and functions of a citizen."
In the September 25, edition of the Muslim Journal the writer of the head lined article began by making a report to the community on the success of the convention and somehow wandered from his focus and began to address: THE QUESTION, “WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR IMAM MOHAMMED’S OFFICE OF THE MOSQUE CARES? It’s not clear how this awkward connection was placed in this article but it was crystal clear as to why and what it was aiming at.
Imam W. D. Mohammed made a public statement to distinguish the difference between the Ideas that he was advancing from his heart and mind by offering such name as The Mosque Cares and that which is registered in the legal filings of the corporate world and recorded as a business name. The Mosques Cares as an institution is a 501c3 not for profit charity governed by federal law and certain constraints dictated by the corporate law of the State of Illinois. The Mosque Cares as a principled idea of true Islamic commitment towards the believers and humanity as a whole guaranteeing all that is good, fair and just, while reinforcing how an Islamic community must always conduct themselves is totally different and cannot be directed or guided or achieved by corporate standards and regulations set down in local or federal law.
The writer in his straying from his initial goal, implies that there is some threat looming or hovering over, who is responsible for the Mosque cares and ends his article--after spelling out certain business commitments Imam Mohammed made to his son Wallace via of the Mosque cares and W.D. Mohammed Publications--by stating “these are clear instructions from our beloved leader concerning his office, The Mosque cares. The writer concludes by saying “it is the interest of Imam W. Deen Mohammed and we who said that we are committed to Allah, Prophet Muhammad and the tafseer of Imam W. Deen Mohammed should support the Mosque cares”. Which Mosque Cares is he referring to?
After years of teaching and explaining that we must quit reading words and learn to read ideas. We must look deep into what a man of this caliber is saying to get the best understanding as to what he is attempting to convey. No disrespect to the writer who I believe is sincere in his call for support for the Mosque Cares, but if this is all he understands from what Imam Mohammed was saying after all of the Khutbahs, lectures and taleems then he has evidently gone to sleep somewhere along the way. Imam Mohammed never said that the authority for my life is in my family or children; nor did he say the hope for their salvation can be found in business or finance, he said the authority for my life is in the Qur’an and the hope for their salvation is also in the Qur’an. What is he telling us? He is telling us that “no matter who we are, wife, brother, sister, son or daughter, if you want to be successful you will have to live the life of the Qur’an because that is your only real and eternal connection to me”.
Those who use their freedom are strong enough to respect what's important. -- Imam WD Mohammed
When Abraham prayed that his offspring would be Imams what did Allah tell him?
2:124 (Y. Ali) And remember that Abraham was tried by his Lord with certain commands, which he fulfilled: He said: "I will make thee an Imam to the Nations." He pleaded: "And also (imams) from my offspring!" He answered: "But My Promise is not within the reach of evil-doers."
And when Noah cried out for his son to be saved what was Allah’s answer to him?
11:45 (Y. Ali) And noah called upon his Lord, and said: "O my Lord! surely my son is of my family! and Thy promise is true, and Thou art the justest of Judges!" -
11:46 (Y. Ali) He said: "O Noah! He is not of thy family: For his conduct is unrighteous. So ask not of Me that of which thou hast no knowledge! I give thee counsel, lest thou act like the ignorant!"
So it is not for me to be the judge over any person, but to think that Imam Mohammed would labor for nearly 40 years calling all of us, including his family to the Qur’an and then to think that his goal is to leave gold and silver for his family and children’s security and salvation, while realizing that gold and silver will not open the door to paradise is not to know and understand Imam Mohammed. Imam Mohammed was the Qur’an walking in our day and time and he truly loved his family and children, all of them and he wanted the best for them but it is naive and shallow to think that Imam Mohammed would put his namesake son in charge of a program called “THE MOSQUE CARES” and not be attempting to impress upon this son’s heart mind and conscience something bigger than material gain or financial security. Isn’t it in keeping with the spirit and teaching of Imam Mohammed to want his community and family to seek first the deepest and most honorable meaning of such names (Wallace D. Mohammed and The Mosque Cares) so that they would be successful?
People avoiding their RESPONSIBILITY cannot be FREE. -- Imam WD Mohammed
The best support that any sincere and true Muslim can offer for Wallace Mohammed II is not to load him down with false accolades such as “WALLACE D MOHAMMED II PLANNED AS THOUGH UNDER THE MANDATE OF ALLAH AND THE TAFSEER OF OUR BELOVED LEADER IMAM W. DEEN MOHAMMED”. And then shove all of his dirt and corruption that you know he is guilty of, shove it up under the rug by saying, “WE MUST SET ASIDE OUR DIFFERENCES TO WORK TOGETHER FOR THE SAKE OF THE BIG PICTURE (TO MAKE AL-ISLAM A PART OF THE SHARED FREEDOM SPACE”. Now that sounds pretty good until you examine it closely.
In the wilds where ANIMALS are free, freedom is not protected. The SURVIVAL of "the FITTEST" is the LAW. -- Imam WD Mohammed
The writer knows as I know what Wallace, his mother and sisters have done to the widowed wife of Imam W. D. Mohammed as well as his youngest children in Arkansas. The writer also knows that from the time that Imam W. D. Mohammed married Khadijah Siddeeq the Imam never disrespected or intentionally excluded her from his work as a Muslim nor did he exclude and show favoritism to any of his children. The writer also knows that just as Wallace II – who he feels is under a mandate of Allah – has joined in the nastiest and most wicked conspiracy that we have ever witnessed in this community since its inception in the 1930’s. This conspiracy is like the ANIMAL LAW, violating the UNPROTECTED rights of the innocent widow of Imam Mohammed and those of his own brothers and sisters in Arkansas. This person that the writer of said article sees as having a mandate from Allah advanced that conspiracy by totally excluding and denying his step mother, the widowed wife of Imam Mohammed and his Arkansas children a respectful place at the so called Muslim Convention that the writer sees as “the tafseer of our beloved leader Imam W. Deen Mohammed”. The writer knows that money being collected by The Mosque cares is being used to pay a hypocritical so-called Muslim lawyer to slander the good name of Imam Mohammed and deny his widowed wife her rightful place in this community and life and the honorable role that Imam Mohammed chose for her in this community yet the writer saw nothing but the mandate of Allah upon these bold and open liars, persecutors and deceivers; that is awful strange to say the least. Now I’m not condemning the Muhammad family to eternal damnation, but each day I rise and continue to witness them violating the unprotected rights of the innocent, turning their back on coming together as Muslims with the Qur’an as a guide to the best solution, and now witnessing the author of the Muslim Journal article ignore these violations while judging these people as being guided by Allah and having the tafseers of Imam W. D. Mohammed in their hard hearted corrupted spirit.
For freedom, the wilds had to be defeated. The first to be defeated were wild animals and unprincipled people. -- Imam WD Mohammed
The writer continues from his opening salvo to “eat from the forbidden tree” as Imam Mohammed put it and defined it, as “leaning on ones own understanding”. This bold writer states with authority what he thinks we should do and does not see the need to consult the Qur’an which should be the authority in all of our lives: “we must set aside differences to work together” states this bold writer!?
Where in the Qur’an does the writer find the idea of “setting aside differences?” That’s not Islam, it may sound good to the half asleep Muslim or it may be the way of some other religion but it is not Islam. Islam admonishes the believers to “settle differences”, not set them aside. A difference that is set aside still exist and Allah will judge them so setting differences aside is not what Almighty G-d Allah admonishes us to do in His Qur’an.
3:23 (Y. Ali) Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those who have been given a portion of the Book? They are invited to the Book of Allah, to settle their dispute, but a party of them Turn back and decline (The arbitration).
45:17 (Y. Ali) And We granted them Clear Signs in affairs (of Religion): it was only after knowledge had been granted to them that they fell into schisms, through insolent envy among themselves. Verily thy Lord will judge between them on the Day of Judgment as to those matters in which they set up differences.
So here we have a respectable Muslim Newspaper that will not allow any ideas that they consider controversial, even if it is the truth, granting a headline story to a writer who may have every good intention in the world but is in way over his head on what he is attempting to say or they are attempting to use him for. This writer is being received with arms wide open because he is willing to trade in his struggle for truth and righteousness for a false show of success.
I close this writing by asking, do you think that Imam Mohammed, the man who told the world that his father taught him from childhood that ISLAM IS FREEDOM JUSTICE AND EQUALITY - was so anxious to make Islam a part of SHARED FREEDOM SPACE in America that he would go against the very principles of FREEDOM, JUSTICE AND EQUALITY and allow the unprotected rights of his wife and his youngest children to be violated in order to attain that goal? If you do then you do not know Imam W. D. Mohammed and you do not understand the true meaning of SHARED FREEDOM SPACE!
Although industrial man is thousands of years away from ANIMAL LAW, conditions can form in the freedom space of those who go about carefree and the ANIMAL LAW will be their dead-end street. -- Imam WD Mohammed
