Debate with NOI Believer

Nuri Allah:

In the Name of Allah The Beneficent, The Merciful.

Asalam Alaykum! I'm glad that you responded to my message. Yes there are differences in ideologies and intepretations among the righteous, even though i personally dont see why there should be but, they exist because Allah Willed for it to be that way. Sometimes we wont understand His plan because we look at it from our own individual perspectives, which are often laced with our own short sightedness and our own vain desires. That, to me is the difference between thinking from Allah's perspective, which is the Best and Highest perspective that we can take, and thinking from man's carnal perspective. The Holy Quran says it like this; "(We take) Allah's colour, and who is better than Allah at colouring, and we are His worshippers". 2;138.

The ironic thing about this is, even though you and i may not share the same understanding, there is differences in understanding among Brothers and Sisters in the NOI, Nation of Gods and Earths, and even the Sunni Muslims. I know this for fact because i took Shahada in 1998 with the Sunnis. I've heard some Sunni Brothers call other Sunni Brothers "kaffir" simply because they may not agree on something, even though they share the same religion. I've heard some Brothers in the NOI call other Brothers in the NOI "hypocrites" simply because they may not agree on something, even though they are supposed to agree on the same body of knowledge. Same goes for the 5% Nation.

The point that im trying to make is people in general disagree. And being that we as a people, who have been and continue to be "Willie Lynched" by our former slave masters, we have been taught to hate everything about ourselves with the primary focus being on our differences. So our case is unique. Athough I am currently not "registered" with any particular "sect" I am MUSLIM to the fullest without exception. I fellowship with both the NOI and the 5% Nation of Gods and Earths. Unfortunately, there are those who would try to make me believe that i would be hated, (or possibly more) by my Sunni Muslim Brothers because of who i am, but to my surprise and to Shaitan's surprise, all is still love and brotherhood, although we often disagree. All Praises due to Allah!

I go to and from, and can learn from ALL, even a christian! I can attend any church, temple, mosque/masjid, synagogue or universal parliament of my choosing and agree or respectfully disagree with whats said because Allah has blessed me when He freed my MIND through the teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. My name is Nuri Divine Allah. Because i go in the Name of Allah, and because of my understanding of Allah's Word, there are those who do not share my understanding, who would say that i am guilty of shirk, which is the crime of speaking falsely against Allah. When the 5%ers say that Allah exists within them/us, it may sound radical or like outright shirk on its face, but when i gained a certain level of understanding, it made sense to me. But what i do not condone is when a Brother says, "When you pray to Allah, you're praying to me." That is straight up arrogance and ignorance as well. It also shows that the brother who made that statement hasnt knowledged and doesnt understand what it is that he is saying.

With that being said, I have a question that i want to ask you. As muslims, we believe that Allah is an All Powerful God who can do all things, and that nothing is impossible for Allah, for He can do anything that He Wills. Muslims in the Nation of Islam believe that Allah appeared in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad. Many Muslims (even christians and jews) say that Allah cannot come in the form of a man. Wouldnt appearing in the Person of a Man fall under the category of "all things"? If we say that Allah cannot appear in the Person of a Man, if that is what He Willed, then what we are saying in effect is that Allah cannot do "all things" and hence, Allah would not be "All Powerful". That would be placing limitations on a limitless God, would it not? Who are we to determine what Allah can and cannot do? Did He create us or did we create Him? Wouldnt placing limitations on Allah be akin to "shirk"? It is my prayer that i do not sound combative because my intentions are not to attack or insult. I am only trying to share and gain understanding. Please respond with an answer whenever you get a chance. Asalam Alaikum. Peace.

Bro Nuri


Bismillahi ar-Rahman ar-Raheem

As-salaamu 'alaikum, Brother Nuri. I would first have you assured that I've taken no offense and have only picked up sheer sincerity in your approach and address. By this, I'm certainly delighted and would like nothing more than to accomplish common terms and clear any misgivings between the both of us. If my ignorance of your person or out of passion I've conveyed anything to have you feel I've slandered you, I do apologize.

I'll commence to respond to each issue that you've raised of which we are at variance. I pray to Allah that I concisely explain each issue to His Satisfaction. For I know all truth I should manifest is from Allah, and any mistakes are purely my own. I pray to Allah that our conversation be productive and that we morally and intellectually benefit from one another. Ameen.

In spite of my tiredness and partial alertness, I hope to recount and clarify the true Islamic position on all your concerns as Allah would have it, in'sha'Allah. For we are told:

"...and if you have a dispute concerning any matter, refer it to Allah and His Messenger if you believe in Allah and the Last Day; that is best and more suitable to the end." -Qur'an 4:59

Islam, I testify, is the true religion of Allah. I believe there is but one God and so there is but one Way (God has ordained for mankind). Islam is not a new religion or way of life, it is the same religion and way which Allah has prescribed mankind since it's creation. To have the correct belief and concept of Allah (as He has revealed through His Attributes), worship Allah and love for your brothers and sisters what you love for yourself. Cause harm to no one, except in the event your freedom or life is at stake. These are the immutable fundamentals of Allah's Deen. I testify that my religion is Islam. And though, for arguments sake, I may use such labels as Sunni, Shia... these descriptions make me shutter upon hearing them.

Submitters are Muslims. The state of submission is the state of Islam. Period. I believe in the whole of the Qur'an. Not parts of the Qur'an. For it is indeed a perverse practice to pick and chose verses that suit your desires and create a deen of your own. I've probally mentioned this before, but again, THE RELIGION OF ALLAH SHOULD NOT BE TAILORED TO SUIT MAN. MAN MUST TAILOR HIMSELF TO SUIT THE RELIGION OF ALLAH.

However, people have a sickness of desiring to worship God through idols or people. They believe it makes it easier for them to worship God through this righteous man's grave or picture for example. They believe that it is only out of honor, love and respect that they worship Allah through these images, idols or certain people. But Allah reminded us over and over that He does not want it. This is the true meaning of shirk; idolatry, making equals to Allah or ascribing partners to Allah.
The foundation of Allah's Deen is Tawheed, the Absolute Oneness and Uniqueness of Allah.

When we consider the Commandments (as we know them today) and the Shahada, the first pillar of Islam, note that the key, most crucial, most important principle is La ilaha ill Allah, there is no diety, object or entity worthy of worship except Allah. Or "The Lord your God is One. Take no other gods beside Him." The message is as clear as it is vital, yet it is one people have the most difficulty in either comprehending or keeping.

In Hinduism, they have a multitude of Gods they adore. But they testify that there is but one God. How can this be? Well, their justification is the result of a corrupt concept of Allah. They believe that for Allah to empathize or communicate with His creations, He must incarnate or possess the form of His creations. This includes monkeys, elephants, birds, fish, people, etc. But from the Qur'an, we understand that Allah is "Above His creation" and that "the Creator is NEVER part of His creation." For example, man has created the computer. Now if that computer doesn't function as it was programmed, is it necessary that man BECOMES the computer in order to figure out the problem? This, to the Muslim or any rational thinker, is an absurd notion. For who understands this machine (the human) better than the Manufacturer (The Creator)? Allah needs not to become man anymore He needs to become the sun or a tree.

We are His Design. It's mentioned in Qur'an how it is Allah who has given us our faculties (i.e. intellect, hearing, sight, emotions, etc.). We know He is the All-Knowing, so it is not necessary or even befitting for God to incarnate as a man to relate to man. As Allah has submitted this world to us (i.e. animals, plants, atmosphere, trees, etc.) for our visual pleasures, intellectual stimulus, emotional, sexual and provisional needs, we should submit ourselves to Allah.

The Qur'an tells how Allah is Self-Sufficient, free of all needs, worthy of all praise. His existence does not rely on sustenence and yet every man who has claimed to be Allah, Father Divine, Clarence Smith, W.D. Fard, Malachi York; and every man who has been made into Allah by others, Jesus, Buddha, Ghandi, Confucious, T.I., Michael Jordan; all depended on sustenance, digestion, oxygen and sleep in order to function and to live. The Qur'an tells how Muhammad ibn Abdullah is the last of the prophets, so we know anyone who has claimed to be a prophet after Muhammad's passing (i.e. Nat Turner, Nostradamus, Elijah Poole, Jim Jones, David Koresh, John Smith, etc.) was either clinically ill, delusional or an outright liar.

You claimed to never come across a single verse indicating Allah as an immaterial being. Yet you acknowledge the places where the Qur'an is clear on Allah not being part of His creation. Is not material a part of His creation? You acknowledge the places in the Qur'an where it says "no vision can grasp Allah", how "He is beyond all comprehension but is acquainted with all things." Furthermore, the Qur'an tells how the sight of Allah is reserved as a reward for the companions of Paradise. This is the absolute best reward man can enjoy, but no one in this life has ever been worthy nor has the capacity to merely even glance at Allah and live to tell about it. This is entirely from Allah's Book.

I would also be careful in using such phrases as "Allah's perspective". For this would suggest that there is a group or gathering of Gods with different opinions on certain matters. Allah has no perspective or opinion for He is All-Knowing and the Source of all Truth. And your argument pertaining to Allah being unable to manifest as a man reminds me of a Christian fellow who once told me "if Muslims don't believe God capable of begetting a son or becoming a man, then Muslims need a bigger God." I said, "no, you need a bigger brain." Because we all know that man is temporal; we live, we die. God on the other hand is Eternal. So if He becomes man, He becomes no longer Eternal. So it's not a matter of Allah being unable to do it, it's a matter of Allah being All Wise. Imagine you're in the backseat of a limousine when suddenly the driver appears back there with you while the car's in motion. Would not that alarm you. "Who's driving the car!" probably comes to mind. Well, consider the Universe and it's operation while it's Sole Controller and Guardian is down on Earth with the rest of us wrapped in flesh, bone and a beating heart.

"Your Allah is One Allah: there is no god but He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth; in the alternation of the night and the day; in the sailing of the ships through the ocean for the profit of mankind; in the rain which Allah Sends down from the skies, and the life which He gives therewith to an earth that is dead; in the beasts of all kinds that He scatters through the earth; in the change of the winds, and the clouds which they Trail like their slaves between the sky and the earth;- (Here) indeed are Signs for a people that are wise.

Yet there are men who take for worship others besides Allah, as equal (with Allah): They love them as they should love Allah. But those of Faith are overflowing in their love for Allah. If only the unrighteous could see, behold, they would see the penalty: that to Allah belongs all power, and Allah will strongly enforce the penalty." -Qur'an 4:163-165

Let's also “bring to the stand" the Verse of the Throne, Ayat-al-Kursi:

"Allah! There is no god but He,-the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede in His presence except as He permitteth? He knoweth what (appeareth to His creatures as) before or after or behind them. Nor shall they compass aught of His knowledge except as He willeth. His Throne doth extend over the heavens and the earth, and He feeleth no fatigue in guarding and preserving them for He is the Most High, the Supreme." -Qur'an 2:255

The Bible also confirms this point. As a matter of fact, although the Bible has been altered, there is no contradiction between the Bible and the Qur'an EXCEPT where the Bible contradicts ITSELF. Take for example, "God is not a man; God is not the son of man" (Numbers 23:19).

The Qur'an makes clear that Christ was not and is not Allah. That certain Christians have transgressed beyond bounds in claiming such (i.e. 4:171). My question is, how do the Hindus, 5% or someone believing Allah appeared in the person of anyone else differ from the error committed by these Christians?

Moving right along, for I probably spent more time on that subject than necessary but hopefully I've not caused any confusion. Now, I'm not sure what your understanding of 2:138 might be, but the verse does not read "Allah's color" but "color FROM Allah" meaning something given unto us by Allah. And the word translated as "color" in the Pickthal interpretation is "sibghah". Which means "to dye, to color, to give hue or to soak." It's meaning relies heavily on the context it's used in. And given the context it's used in that verse, taking into account the verse before it, the immediate allusion is towards the Baptismal ceremony, which it applies that one-time dip in water does nothing to eliminate a man's sins or draw one closer to God. However, a constant immersion in the Will of Allah is what truly establishes one's purity and righteous devotion towards Allah. This is why you find in other interpretations the phrase "Our religion is the Baptism of Allah and who's better than Allah in baptizing?" or "who better to baptize than Allah?" is used. Other interpretations, based on the context translated "sibghaht'ullah" as "the religion of Allah".

This is not to dismiss or discredit Pickthal's choice to use "color from Allah". Because "to color" is not restricted to imply picking up a paintbrush or washable markers to fill in the lines. "Color" means to modify or adjust something from a previous state. It's common to come across phrases like "color me guilty", "color of distraught" or "color of change". To color something implies to give that something a distinct quality or unique feature. So in this verse, we're encouraged to let nothing besides Allah "color" us. Only He, as our Lord and Creator Knows what's best for us, so if He tells us what we should do.We should do it. Just as a christian baptism is supposed to symbolize an individuals' transition from "spiritually filthy" to "spiritually clean", the baptism, the religion or adherence to Allah's Commands is the only means by which we truly obtain this condition.

*SIDE NOTE: We don't accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we accept Jesus' Lord and Savior as our Lord and Savior (of course I don't need to tell you that, please excuse my unneccessary excessiveness).

You said you took your Shahada some years ago. I'm afraid, or at least I am of the impression that you took it too hastily. I doubt you fully grasped the meaning and true concept of "la ilaha ill Allah" before professing. And as you know, Allah does not judge by deeds, He judges the intentions behind the deeds. He knows what's in our hearts regardless to what we outwardly express. It seems your Iman or Faith was influenced heavily by the attitudes and idiocy of a few Muslims. You must understand that ISLAM IS NOT WHAT MUSLIMS DO. ISLAM IS WHAT MUSLIMS SHOULD BE DOING.

Yes, there are Muslims who find no fault in themselves and look for every excuse and opportunity to scold or criticize others. Yes, there are Muslims who unwittingly commit shirk. And finally, yes, these are only two examples of what is dividing us today. And I urge that every single Muslim honestly and deeply check themselves. I am of course no exception to this advisory. We must all check and correct ourselves every step of the way. And we must avoid those who don't.

I also believe that interacting with so many different crowds, the 5%, the church, the NOI and so on is only good for to leaving you scatter-brained. You can't take the "best" of each group and create a "deen of your own". You may discover partial or half-truths in each of these groups, but the WHOLE TRUTH, the deen in which there is NO DOUBT can only be found in Islam. If you do not accept, then I would suggest you make a choice of either registering with the NOI fraternity, joining the 5% or baptizing in the name of the father, the son and the holy ghost. Unless you are giving them daw'ah, there is really nothing either of these groups has to offer you.

Another well-intended suggestion of mine is to abstain from taking on the names of Allah. For a Muslim, a submitter to Allah, surely knows better than to attribute to himself the name and qualities of the One he worships.

"Allah! There is no god but He! To Him BELONG the most Beautiful Names." -Qur'an 20:8

A Muslim should only use a name of Allah in his own name if it illustrates servitude to Allah. Such as "Abdul-Kadr", "Abdul-Aziz", "Abdullah" or in my case, "Abdul-Vakil".

The Qur'an is Allah's Word. Not His complete Word, but a guidebook providing a perfect system of which we can live in every respect to be successful in this life and the Hereafter. Like Ayat-al-Kursi tells us, "none can compass anything of His knowledge accept what He Wills." Likewise, the Qur'an only reveals what we NEED TO KNOW for our salvation and what we need to know to prepare or intellectually arm ourselves against the deceitful handiwork of Shaitan. You will not find out the preservation of myocardial phosphates in the Qur'an. You will not find out the absorption rate of 50 milligrams hydroclorothiazide in the Qur'an. You will not find the gestation period of the African elephant in the Qur'an. What do any of these factors have to do with our salvation and our protection against forces rebelling Allah?

"Say: If the ocean were ink wherewith to write out the words of my Lord, sooner would the ocean be exhausted than would the words of my Lord, EVEN IF WE ADDED ANOTHER OCEAN LIKE IT FOR ITS AID."

"Say: "I am but a man like yourselves, but the inspiration has come to me, that your Allah is one Allah: whoever expects to meet his Lord, let him work righteousness, and, in the worship of his Lord, admit no one as partner." -Qur'an 18:109-110

Alright, my brother. I am nodding off. Please forgive my oversights if any... especially the grammatical ones. I pray that I've explained everything in satisfactory detail. May Allah Guide us all and may Allah be Pleased with those who strive to please Him. Ameen.



In the Name of Allah The Beneficent, The Merciful

Wa-alaikum salam. Peace. There are a lot of things that you mentioned in your last e-mail that i would want to elaborate with u on, but for me it is late and i will only focus on one, or a few things at a time. U said that for Allah to come in the Person of a Man to solve man's problems would be akin to man coming in the form of a computer to solve the computer's problems. It was a good explanation that i can and will add on to, from your perspective first, but i will then show where that comparison falls short. It was good because it shows that /Since A created B, A cannot be B because the relationship between the two are A=Creator, and B=Creation. But where the fault lies in the comparison is that even though A (Creator) in this case would be Man, and B (Creation) would be computer, there is a huge difference between the two Bs (Man &Computer) we are speaking of. That difference is, Man is living and computer is not. Something that was once living (man) could not become something that is not living (computer) to fix the non living objects problems. That is a physical impossiblility! You may say ask "Why would Allah want to become a Man?" Since we as muslims all agree that Allah is All Powerful and can do whatever He wants, we should then agree that, even though it would not make any sense to us, it would be possible for Allah to become a man, IF that is what He Willed, for whatever reason. Where the comparison falls short is that we both know, that physically becoming a computer is a complete IMPOSSIBILITY for a man, no matter HOW much a man willed or desired, whether it makes sense or not, for whatever reason. Man CANNOT and WILL NOT EVER become a computer!!! LOL!!!

But I'm glad you brought that analogy into perspective because i will make a few more comparisons. First I want to briefly clarify my understanding of exactly WHO and WHAT Allah is. Allah, from my understanding is the Divine Living MIND, in it's pure energy state before the existance of space and time, that Willed the entire Universe into existance. This MIND is also part of us. MIND is a scientific word for SPIRIT and SPIRIT is a religious and/or spiritual term for MIND. You may say, Allah is not a mind, or Allah doesnt have a mind, but MIND is the source of "Will", for if there is no MIND, there is no Will.

There is a lot of confusion dealing with the individual of Master Fard Muhammad, in particular and the Black Man in General. I can only speak for myself and no one else. There are muslims in the NOI that share the same understanding as i do and there are muslims in the NOI that do not. Same goes for the 5% NGE. There ARE different levels of understanding btween believers of this same body of knowledge that would have even some of us at odds with each other. Sad but true. Anyway, we are never told to worship the "Person" of Master Fard Muhammad, even though some brothers and sisters do. I personally do not believe that Allah "IS" the Person of Master Fard Muhammad. Master Fard Muhammad was born in the year 1877. The Universe was here before 1877. The Holy Quran was revealed centuries before 1877. We believe that the Holy Quran is the Word of Allah. How can an individual's word be in existance, centuries before that individual physically came into existance? That would not make any sense at all!!! But make no mistake about it! For I am not denying His divinity at all. Neither would i deny mine nor would i deny yours. I believe that Allah CAME in the Person OF Master Fard Muhammad. He came to show us who He was, and who we were, and that we could do anything (within the realm of reality) that we put our MIND to because the same thing that was in Him is also in us (again, within the realm of reality).

I (speaking for myself) do not worship the material form of any man or any thing, because the material form is finite, meaning having limitations, a beginning and an ending. For a man to worship another man's flesh, to me is homosexual! But Allah - the Divine Living MIND that created the Universe, that came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, that can also be developed in us through study, prayer, righteous living or as you would say - deening, the MIND is infinite for the MIND is capable of achieving anything that it concieves. Pure energy never dies. Pure energy can never be destroyed. It also has no beginning or ending. Basic physics. Everything that exists in this Universe, from a simple toy, to a house, car, person, city, country, planet, star, galaxy, etc, existed as a thought inside of MIND before being willed into existance and made a material reality. Once again i'm only speaking as an individual, and not a group. If a man feeds on Allah's Word, that man can grow into Allah's MIND, for through Allah's Word, He gives us a glimpse into His MIND. The Holy Quran, and many other scriptures (in their original and prest form) are only Allah's Word, and not Jibril's or Muhammad's or Isa's or any other messenger. A man can reflect the wisdom of his Maker - Allah, i.e. by living and applying Quran, just like a computer can reflect the wisdom of its maker -man. Man and Allah is referred to as "He". The same cannot be said for man and computer. Allah, from your perspective, may not ever need to become man. But I believe we'll agree that it is not something impossible for Almighty Allah to do, since nothing is an impossibile for Allah and He CAN do whatever He pleases. A man can want to become a computer all his life. This is a physical impossibility for man, being that man's material flesh is finite. He can share his MIND with the computer and program it to do what as he wills, but physically, man cannot do that! It aint happenin!

P.S. You mentioned the seven heavens. There are many microcosms of this concept, which is a True and Living concept, but for the sake of brevity, i'll only name a few. There are seven manifested planes of energy in the Universe vibrating at seven different speeds. Everything that exists, exists as a form of vibration with the MIND vibrating at the highest frequency of all. There are seven manifested colors of a prism or spectrum of a crystal when put to the sunlight. There are seven layers of electrons around the nucleus of an atom. There are seven different layers of human skin. Seven "chakras" along the human spinal chord with the highest resting at the Pineal Gland, which the ancients said represented the All Seeing Eye, or the Third Eye. All these are different terms for MIND. The Head is where the MIND rests. The human being is the true house of God. The church, masjid, and synagogue are only signs of the true Temple of God. Where is your temple brother? Your Temple is your Head. Study the science and benefits of melanin. During salat, when in prostration, the pineal gland releases more melanin into the bloodstream. During sajadah, there are seven parts, two feet, two knees, two hands, and one nose, touching the prayer rug with the head being the eighth part "above" the other seven parts. I'm sleepy now. Theres a whole lot more i cud go into but for the sake of time, another time.

Asalam Alaikum!


Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem

As-salaamu 'alaikum, Brother. What a pleasure it is to see the productivity of our discussion. It would seem were heading towards a peaceable, mutual understanding. And man, I haven't heard or read literature on that "MIND" philosophy in years. That has jogged some memories. I revisited places I forgot existed with that one. LOL!

And I'm with you. I just arrived home from work, but I can't front on how eager I was for a response. So with the little energy that remains I've decided, not only to read this reaction, but to take a short time to react myself. Even in this exhausted, weary state of mine. The analogy of man becoming computer, I about expected you to take that position. And rightfully so. It is physically impossible for a man to transform into anything (outside of what cosmetic surgery permits... but even that is only an alteration of appearance, not reality).

Let's toy with this analogy again from an alternate precept. Assume you discovered a means of manipulating your molecular and anatomical structure and biochemical composition to successfully transform yourself into a peregrine falcon. This is the kind of thing we can only make possible inside sci-fi books and films, but let's imagine for a moment you or anyone else put this "science to work" to materialize a very popular childhood fantasy of becoming a bird. Once this takes place, you are no longer human and therefore can no longer do "human things". You can only do bird, or more specific, peregrine falcon things. You would no longer be considered or acknowledged as a human being.

For time's sake, I will not elaborate. I'm sure you have the picture and so from here I'll move on...

I don't believe Allah can become a man. Or more appropriately, I believe that Allah is far Exalted of becoming a man. It is not befitting of His Majesty to take form as a human being. My reasoning of which is perfectly rational. I'll list pointers we agree on to establish this claim:
  • Allah does nothing without purpose
  • Allah has reason for everything He does
  • Allah never turns back after He decrees a matter
  • Allah never does anything of a fruitless nature

Admittedly, three of those four points are fundamentally the same. My intent here is to place major emphasis on the fact that Allah is not like man, in that, He is void of the desires and foolish wishes and aspirations of man. In other words, Allah would never do something merely JUST BECAUSE HE CAN. If it has no reason or serves no purpose, then Allah does not do it. Allah never ponders: "hmm... I wonder what it would be like to be a man." or "well, you know, I already promised there would be no more prophets, so I guess what I'll do is go down there myself and PERSONALLY deliver my message." This is absurdity of the highest order. To me, the question "can Allah become a man?" is as obtuse as to ask "can Allah die?" Indeed, Allah is All-Powerful, but you must take into consideration the remainder of His numerous attributes. Such that He is as well: The Wise, The Incomparable, The Eternal, The Unique, The (Absolute) One, The Unseen (Al Baatin).

*NOTE: "Metamorphic" or "Shape-Shifter" are NOT among Allah's attributes, nor are there any that suggest, imply or represent such qualities. Also, none of Allah's attributes cancels out another.

It was never necessary for Allah to descend in any fashion to inform man. It was always through the angel Ji'breel through which select, righteous individuals received His Message to summon people to the right path. Never has He made an exception or even hinted at making an exception under ANY circumstance. Remember: "Allah never turns back after He decrees a matter". As goes for your rather elaborate explanation on the origin of the Universe being spawned from the MIND. This concept is as well bogus and unacceptable. Other than "The Mind" not being among Allah's Attributes, you have also to remember, the mind; like energy, like matter, like souls, like spirits, is merely a Creation of Allah's. Allah created the mind. He created our intellect. He created our soul, our blood, our flesh, our melanin, our endocrine system, our central nervous system, our neurokenetics... Allah has Created all of these, but Allah is not ANY of these. Surah 112, again, sums it up best:

"Say: He is Allah, The One and Only.Allah,The Eternal, Absolute. He begetteth not nor was He begotten. And there is NOTHING like unto Him."

If you're like me, then your understanding of "nothing" is absolutely nothing. Not a thing conceivable, comprehensible or even imaginable IS like or IS EVER LIKE Allah. No equals means no equals. We have a uniqueness among ourselves as humans, such as fingerprints. And Allah even tells us this:

"Does man think that We cannot assemble His bones? Nay! We are able to put together in perfect order even THE VERY TIPS OF HIS FINGERS." -Qur'an 75:3-4

Even still, our uniqueness is not to be compared to the Uniqueness of The Almighty. Allah has no fingerprints. We, as people, have fingerprints and although distinguished as they might be, we have that feature in common among one another.

Final point (I think). You say Allah came in the person of W.D. Fard, but was not W.D. Fard. Similarly, when I come into a room, I don't suddenly become the room. This may be only a reiteration of what I already established, but this "coming into Fard's person" is also blasphemous. It's very suggestive of a "divine" version of an Exorcist or Fallen esque demonic-possession. Allah possesses no person's soul and no person is divine. For divinity indicates perfection. We are not perfect. We are not even capable of being the best at anything. All we can do is "do our best". We can conceivably perform better than certain individuals in certain areas (and even this is merely based on popular opinion), but we can never consistently be the absolute best at anything. We are not divine. We are perfectly human.

All Praise, Glory and Majesty belongs to Allah and to Allah Alone. Subhanahu wa ta'ala!

May Allah make better perceptible the Straight Way to the totality of mankind. And for those of us already along the Straight Way; may Allah make us better inclined to remain on that Path. Ameen.
