Earthquake Part 2

Imam W. D. Muhammad


1. When the Earth is
Shaken to her (utmost) convulsion.

2.  And the Earth throws up
Her burden, (from within).

3. And man cries (distressed):
What is the matter with her?” –

4.  On that Day will she
Declare her tidings:

5.  For that thy Lord will
Have given her inspiration.

6. On that Day will men
Proceed in companies sorted out,

To be shown the Deeds
That they (have done).

7. Then shall anyone who
Has done an atom's weight
Of good, see it !

8. And anyone who
Has done an atom's weight
Of evil, shall see it.

Holy Quran Translation by Yusuf Ali; Sura XCIX Verses 1 - 8

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful; Peace and Blessings upon His Servant and His Messenger, Muhammad, forever, Amen.

There is no god but Allah; Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.

As -Salaam –Alaikum

My Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Last week we were discussing the chapter entitled, "The Convulsion," in the Holy Quran. The fourth verse says that on that day (of the great earthquake) the earth will declare her tidings. This means that the earth will be making conversation of the great news. In English, there is not a plural word for "news," but in the Arabic language there is a plural word for news. So this verse is actually saying that several news has come to us. The New Testament of the Bible (the gospel) is called "the good news." There are many good news that have come to us, but this old world of grafted, unnatural mentality has kept them away from us. But on the day of the great earthquake, the Holy Quran says that the earth will be in conversation talking about the news. God will send the news to the masses of people that this old material world has kept hidden from us. Now that Almighty God has broken up the earth, we can see the secrets that were buried in the days of Adam, in the days of Abraham, in the days of Moses, and in the days of Jesus. We can see secrets coming up out of the earth today because the earth is exploding due to the great shaking that has taken place. God has brought the foundation of New Jerusalem down upon the earth and the earth's surface has broken with its weight causing the inside of the earth to spew up. Secrets that were buried over eons of time are now popping up out of the earth and we see them rolling out in plain view of the people.


Destruction And Treasures

When mighty earthquakes take place we see fire come up out of the earth. The ancient wise men of scripture used this kind of allegorical language because it speaks so well to the message that they wanted to give. Fire is symbolic of knowledge and certainly knowledge is going to pop up out of the earth on that day. Earthquakes throw out lava and that lava throws out minerals, metals, and iron to distant places. They may destroy those things that are close by but they throw out treasures to those things at a distance. This wonderful chapter is telling us that although God certainly sends individuals as messengers, there is going to come a time when God will have advanced His plan through individuals to the point that it will be feasible to speak to everybody. The scripture says that a day will come when God is going to speak to the people, but
He will not have to speak to them through an individual prophet or messenger. The Book (Bible) presents the same idea when it says that there will come a time when every eye shall see Him and every tongue shall confess.


The Earth Is Inspired

It is wrong to think that the great earthquake just means a physical destruction that is going to come about to make souls rise up out of the grave. Certainly Almighty God is going to raise us up and He is going to give us a new creation, but He is also going to raise this particular human family up while they exist on the earth in physical form. Just as he was able to show Himself to His prophets and messengers, He is going to show Himself to all people in the end of time.

The scripture says that the earth will declare her tidings "...for that thy Lord will have given her inspiration." The Arabic word that is translated as "inspiration" is the very same word that is used when God inspires a prophet or a messenger. It means that in coming to them with His message, with His spirit, and with His truth, He wakes them and guides them. Then He sends them out to guide and to wake others. The very same word that is used for God's inspiring individual men that were called prophets and messengers is used in this verse for Him inspiring the earth Himself.


A Message From The Earth

In the day of the great earthquake, everything in the physical world (physical nations and physical powers) is going to be broken up. When this happens, people are going to be more inclined to listen to what God has to say. If they turn an ear to God, He will make them hear (understand) what He is saying. He will not be speaking through an individual, but He is going to speak through the earth itself. He will speak through the rising and the falling of nations; He will speak through the scheming and planning of nations; He will speak through the massing of wealth and power; He will speak through the massing of filth and cruelty that this world of grafted mentality has spread all over the world — He will speak through every physical thing. He will speak through the physical sun, through the physical moon and stars, through the physical clouds, through the physical rain, through the physical wind, through the physical snowstorms, through the physical ice, through cold winds and hot winds — He will speak through every single thing in creation. Everything is going to be so thoroughly broken up that a message will come out from the earth itself. This means that things are going to be so thoroughly broken up that our mind's eye will be attentive to them. Then God will be able to speak to us through that which we have given our attention to.

Today, Almighty God has not only inspired me, but He has inspired everyone of you. The masses all over the world are inspired today and they are all reaching out for spiritual understanding. They are questioning the established institutions and the doings of man on earth. God has inspired all people all over the world and He is making His signs manifest all over the world. The signs of the time tell us that His hands are in control over things in the world today. I am only one of those that God has taken up and inspired to speak out and to stand up for truth.


Light From The Core Of Creation

Verse six of the Sura entitled, "The Convulsion" says that on that Day will men proceed in companies sorted out. This means that people (men and
women) who have given their minds to God and who have been trying to follow God's way ...( not complete)


An Atom’s Weight

A few weeks, ago, we discussed the judgment that is taking place right now in this life so that you may be shown the deeds that you have done. Anyone who has done an atom's weight of good shall see it and anyone who has done an atom's weight of evil shall see it. Certainly God speaks the truth. If there is only an atom of evil or good, why is it going to be detected at the time of the great earthquake? It is because the light of God will be so bright at that time cover the whole world. It is going to be so clear and so plain that it will remove all pockets of darkness, answer all questions of confusion and doubt. We will be able to understand things that we were not able to understand from Adam to Muhammad.

Today, the way of God is being shown so clearly manifest from the way of the
diabolic (grafted) mentality   that   the people are able to detect the right way with their own senses and with their own mind's  eye.  If  you  manifest just an
atom's  weight  of deviation from  the direction of Almighty God's plan, the people who understand the voice of truth will be able to detect your deviation. Nothing can be hidden from the righteous people of God today.

Thank you for honoring us with your time to read these few words.

Your brother,
