"Be and It Is": wisdom from The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

(Blogger's Note: Below is an excerpt from the The Will of God Part I by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered October 26, 1986. As we prepare and plan for the upcoming New Year, I felt this guidance is great food for thought.)

"The Holy Qur'an constantly reminds us that Allah's command is just "Be!" And it is. But this is not some spooky term such as "Abracadabra!" or "Open, Sesame!" When Allah (God) says "Be!" He summons the Power of His Own Being, His Creative Mind and Will, to bring about that which He Wills.

When Allah says, "Be!," this is an expression of His Will. But it is more than just the expression of His Will, for when He says, "Be!," He arranges forces, resources, angels, people --- according to a Plan --- to bring about the Fruition of His Will.

Allah's Will never fails. There is no plan by any scholar or scientist, no power in the Heavens above or in the Earth beneath, that can circumvent the Plan of Almighty God. In fact, the plans of the present world leaders were all taken into consideration. Before they were even a thought in the mind of their father, their plans were known. Their scheme was known. And Allah took their plans into consideration. He places His Hand over their plan; He help to bring about the Fruition of His Will. That is a Mighty, Powerful Being we are dealing with. When He says, "Be!" it is.

What a wonderful thing, that Almighty God, Allah chooses to share this Power with Humanity! Think of that, Brothers and Sisters! Almighty God, Allah, Who has created everything by His Will, shares His Power with you and me! We, today, have the ability to Will. We have the ability to plan, to work, to organize and to bring into fruition our plans. We, too, can say "Be!," go to work, and it is."


  1. Man makes plans and Allah(swt) plans. Any and everything that happens, happens only by the will of Allah(swt). Any worldly success is by the mercy of Allah(swt) so we must remember Him often and be grateful only to Him.


  2. Hi Bro. Jesse...I just wanted to take a moment to appreciate you and the Nation. I love the work you guys are doing. I shadow you and the Nation via twitter, The Final Call and webcasts whenever possible. Keep up the good work!

  3. Happy New Year Brother Jesse. Great words indeed.

  4. Looking forward to your works in 2009 Brother Jesse. Happy New Year.

  5. I am a believer in and stand fully confident in the ability of the Almighty God to say BE.. and it is. In fact say nothing. Just will something and it is.

    What then of Muslim fundamentalists who try and "help" God by going on suicide missions and fighting the "holy war".

    Can I safely assume these people have misguided faith or does not stand fully confident in the ability of the Almighty God to bring His will to pass - hence their actions?
