PRAYER: Mans Most Powerful Weapon

MOORISH KORAN, CHAPTER 1 — THE CREATION AND FALL OF MAN

“But man like every other thought of Allah, was but a seed, a seed that held within itself the potencies of Allah, just as the seed of any plant of earth holds deep within itself the attributes of every part of that especial plant.
So spirit-man, as seed of Allah held deep within himself the attributes of every part of God… The human seed that came forth from the heart of Allah was full ordained to be the Lord of plane of soul, and of the plane of things made manifest.”

OUR AUTHORITY

It is the birthright of Man and Woman to be the Lord of the plane of soul, and Lord of the plane of things made manifest. This is relayed to us by the Moorish Koran verse above, as well as in the Bible, and the Quran of Mecca.

27. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. — Holy Bible (Genesis 1:27-28)

To state it plainly, “the plane of things manifest” is limited to those things we observe through our 5 senses. So, things manifest, are what we can See, Hear, Smell, Taste, and Touch.

However, the plane of soul is beyond our 5 senses. It is made of ethers (light/energy) far too fine for our fleshy eyes to see. In other-words, this plane is outside the visible spectrum of light, and it cannot be experienced by any of our 5 senses.

Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: “I will create a vicegerent on earth.”Quran of Mecca (Sura 2:30)

Since Allah (God) cannot be seen, being “made is his own image” applies to having his nature, or attributes. A “vicegerent” is a person exercising delegated power on behalf of a sovereign or ruler. This applies to having dominion over every living thing. Therefore, all scriptural accounts agree: What God is, in the universal sense — Humanity is, in the individual sense.

 


BEGINNING TO UNDERSTAND

If we have life, and that life is made in the image of our Father-God Allah; – then we can do what we want with our life, and make our self into whatever we wish. We have this freedom, but we must also understand that our freedom operates within divine laws, and never outside of it.

Divine law penetrates all nature, governing all things, both seen and unseen. This law is not physical or material, but mental and spiritual. This is Allah’s method of operation.  Therefore, we must be aware of this law and obey it.

In the simplest form, this law can be summed up to five divine principles: Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom, and Justice. If man disobeys this law, it has to act as law, and punish him. This is Justice. We cannot change its operation; we can only submit to it — one way or the other.

Freedom comes to man when he understands the laws of his own life and conforms to them. As a result he is able to subject those laws to his own use — for health, happiness, and joy.

 


THE POWER OF PRAYER

The key to our prayer being accepted does not come from outside of us. Our prayer is activated completely from the NAMES (attributes and virtues) of Allah, already present within us.

In short, prayer is the act of directing the divine powers already present within yourself to achieve your needs. The scientific explanation to this fact is that prayer is “guided brain waves”.

When we realize that each “thought” at every instance of our life creates conscious and unconscious “prayers” that are activated by strong brain waves; – then we will seek to master the “directing” of this incredible force.

This is why Prophet Mohammed advises us to:

Pray with the certainty that your prayer will definitely be accepted, without doubt or suspicion.”

Likewise, Prophet Jesus expressed the same thing in the Bible (Matthew 17:20), regarding having faith:

Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

And Prophet Noble Drew Ali articulates the underlying science behind these statements, at Chapter 7 of the Moorish Koran, in stating:

Force is the Will of Allah, and is omnipotent [everywhere–all the time], and Power is that  will in manifest… and thought of… man, or other thinking things, directs the force…”

The biggest obstruction to the realization of prayer is doubt and suspicion. The extent to which doubt is minimized determines the speed and the certainty of prayer fulfillment. For example:

  1. Think about the things in life that have not yet occurred, but you fully expect them to occur, without a doubt…
  2. Think of the hardships in life you stressed/worried about before they happend to you; – only to find they actually ended up happening to you…

In both instances, how strong do you think those brain waves were? Respectively, these are the levels of certainty, intensity, and persistence we must learn to “pray” with, on a conscious and unconscious level.

Man forseeth the evil that is to come; he remembereth it when it is past; he considereth not that the thought of affliction woundeth deeper than the affliction itself. Think not of thy pain, [except] when it is upon thee, and thou shalt avoid what most hurt thee.”

The above excerpt is from the Moorish Koran chapter entitled MISERY. It instructs us to:

  1. Avoid anticipating hardships before they happen, and
  2. Avoid continuing to dwell upon our hardships after they have occurred, unless we want those conditions to deepen.

Instead, replace the thoughts of hardship with thoughts of the best outcome. Now Visualize it; Verbalize it; Expect it. This is because our thoughts direct the force which creates our own conditions. Even the words we utter, and the actions we take, began as a thought.

The next instruction is to continue the prayer repeatedly, until it is fulfilled. Never give up on a specific prayer before it is fulfilled. Think of this as “cooking the prayer it until it is done“. Since our thoughts create our own conditions; – often we have surrounded ourselves with a cocoon of undesirable conditions, that our prayer must penetrate. Therefore, we must be steadfast in prayer and clear with our intentions. In the same manner, our actions must not contradict our intentions.

Lastly, when prayers are answered, it is critical to express heartfelt joy and gratitude. For the virtue of gratitude multiplies the blessings.

 

May the force be with you…

Peace & Love!
