“In each one of us Allah (God) has placed a certain gift, the fulfillment of which causes us to make our contribution to the whole. Since Allah (God) is the Giver of all gifts and the Nourisher of us all unto perfection, it is only proper that He be acknowledged as the True Center of our existence. If He directs a path, then it will ultimately lead to Him. His Attributes are perfect, His are the Best of names. This means that with His direction, we will achieve excellence in whatever field we choose.”

—The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

How To Love You: The God Within (Introduction)

Duty to Allah (God) is First and Foremost I thank Allah for His intervention in our affairs in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom all praise is due forever. I can never thank Allah enough for the Eternal Leader of the Nation of Islam, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, The Living Exalted Christ. And I further thank Allah for blessing us with our Divine Teacher, Guide and Grace in our midst, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. For if it was not for these men I would not have anything to say.

In the Qur’an Sura 4, titled Al-Nisa – THE WOMEN, chapter 1 verse 1 reads, “O people, keep your duty to your Lord, Who created you from a single being and created its mate of the same (kind) and spread from these two many men and women. And keep your duty to Allah, by Whom you demand one of another (your rights), and (to) the ties of relationship. Surely Allah is ever a Watcher over you.”

The name and the number of every chapter of the Qur’an is significant. The chapter from which this verse is quoted is titled, “Al-Nisa – THE WOMEN.” It is the fourth chapter of the Qur’an. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that the number 4 represents foundation and preparation.

Foundation is defined as 1. The basis or groundwork of anything: the moral foundation of both society and religion. 2. The natural or prepared ground or base on which some structure rests.

Preparation is defined as 1. A proceeding, measure, or provision by which one prepares for something: preparation for a journey. 2. Any proceeding, experience, or the like considered as a mode of preparing for the future.

The people and nations of the world must understand that women are the foundation of civilization, and the preparedness of the woman is the basis out of which a good family and a good civilization comes into existence. No female can be prepared to be the foundation of a great society if that female is disallowed the fullness of education, the cultivation of the nature in which she is created, and the cultivation of her God-given gifts and talents.

This verse of the Qur’an opens up by teaching us that our first duty is to our Lord, our Nourisher, and our Sustainer who evolves us from a tiny life germ and makes us attain stage after stage until we reach our eventual perfection.

Duty to Allah (God) is the prerequisite for all other duties. Life without duty to Allah (God) first and foremost is a life that will fail in its duty to self and others. If we cannot be dutiful to Him who created us and gave us a creation out of which we sustain our lives from which we create livelihoods, then, that dereliction of duty to Him will cause us to be derelict in our duty to self, parents, husbands, children and society. So, keeping our duty to Allah (God) is the foremost duty for human life. We are obligated to serve Allah (God). We are obligated to worship Him and to set up no rival or partner with Him. We are obligated to pray to Him and to ask His assistance in all things through patience and prayer.

This verse of the Qur’an under discussion is teaching us that Allah (God) created us from a single being and created our mates of the same essence and from these two He spread many men and women, then, we are reminded again, “And keep your duty to Allah, by Whom you demand one of another (your rights), and to the ties of relationship.”

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan teaches us that “the purpose for knowledge is to feed the development of the human being until that human grows into divine and becomes a true manifestation of the characteristics of God.” The human being is born with an insatiable desire to learn and this natural desire causes us to embark on the path or journey to seek knowledge.

Recognition of Allah (God), is the Supreme, the Sovereign of the universe, is a must because He is the One who created in the male and the female our nature. This nature of male and female causes us to demand of each other our rights. The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan have been chosen by Allah (God) to lay the foundation for a new world. The foundation for a new world must begin with a new woman. They have been devoted to the elevation of the woman. We are taught civilization is measured by the woman. If you want to take the world down, the place of attack is the female. If you want to build a world up, you start with the female.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said that, “Seventy-five percent of His work was with the female.” Therefore, He strived mightily to make something of the Black woman. He taught her how to sew and cook, how to rear her children, how to take care of her husband, how to keep a clean home, and in general He taught her how to act at home and abroad. His desire was to produce a very high level of civilization coming through a reformed female. He took great joy in seeing our women come from a low state or condition constantly improving themselves. He taught them about loud raucous behavior and laughter. He loved to hear the refined speech of the female. He wanted her highly educated, cultivated, and refined. He taught the female how to walk, sit and stand. He showed her, her mother’s dressing room that she had not seen in 400 years; meaning He showed her the styles of the righteous women of the East from whom she is a descendant. He loved to see her speaking with firmness to men and never being forward in the presence of men. He hated sisters to speak to men with soft, sultry speech. He taught her, as well as the male, according to the Qur’an that both should lower their gaze when they are in each other’s company. He dressed the female in such a way that men could not know the beauty of their form, but, would only become acquainted with the beauty of their faces and their expressions so that the male would not be physically attracted to her alone, but, spiritually attracted to her as well.

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan teaches us that “the purpose for knowledge is to feed the development of the human being until that human grows into divine and becomes a true manifestation of the characteristics of God.” The human being is born with an insatiable desire to learn and this natural desire causes us to embark on the path or journey to seek knowledge.

It is imperative that the female builds a proper relationship with Allah (God) first. Our duty is first and foremost to Allah (God) who created us. We must worship Him and Him alone. We must not set up no rival or partner with Him. We must learn to love self, accept self, know our value and our worth and this is why I have been inspired to compile this book to encourage women to accept our own and be ourselves.

Build A Proper Relationship With Allah (God) First

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan teaches us in order for the female to produce a great future for us; she must be filled with the desire for knowledge, specifically the knowledge of God and His Word. Any society that deprives the female of the deepest aspect of the study of the Word of God is a society that will not approach the potential of its greatness. For, only when we have a highly spiritual and moral woman, educated, cultivated, cultured and refined, will she be able to bring into existence a civilization bearing these same fine qualities and characteristics.

What is God’s view of the female? She is a manifestation of His attribute of mercy to the world. She is undeserved kindness; through her we are extended through the generations. It is only through the woman that we live again, and again, and again. It is only through her that we continue to move toward the true perfection that God desires for His creation. She is the cornerstone of the family and therefore is critical in the whole process of nation and world building.
