The Jinn, Gentiles and Genes
by Dr. Ridgely Abdul Mu’min Muhammad
One of the strangest yet fundamental parts of the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is the history of Yakub and the making of the white race. Where did the white race come from? In our lessons the question is asked, "Who is the colored man?" The Answer is, "The colored man is the Caucasian (white man) or Yakub’s grated devil, skunk of the planet earth." These are hard and, some say, "racist" words. But are they true?
In the Holy Qur’an reference is made to human-like creatures called "jinn". These jinn are sometimes represented as spirits of evil, mountain tribes or devils. A whole chapter of the Holy Qur’an is dedicated to them (Sura 72). No real description is given of them accept that they were created of a "flame of fire"(Sura 55:15). In the history of Yakub the Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us that 6,600 years ago Mr. Yakub discovered that there were two natures or people within the original Black man, one black, the other brown. This brown germ could be isolated and formed into a human with a fiery, unalike nature.
In Ancient Kemet they had a story or legend about two brothers, Ausar and Set. The human being was said to have these two fighters in their bodies, one Ausar or the Black and the other Set, or the Red. The human had to maintain the balance between these two warriors within the body.
In the Bible the authors try to give an explanation for the three major categories of man or races. The human race was destroyed by a flood. Only Noah and his three sons and their wives were saved. After the flood the earth was divided and populated from his three sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth. Shem representing what is called the "Semites", Ham, "Cushite" or black, and Japheth, "Gentiles" or white. Japheth is said to populate what is called in the Bible, the "isles of the Gentiles" (Genesis 10:2-5). The "-iles" part refers to the mountainous islands in the Aegean Sea, but what does the "gen-" part refer to? Could this be the "jinn"?
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has taught us that the Holy Qur’an was revealed by Allah (God) to and through Prophet Muhammad (may Allah be pleased) 1400 years ago. Minister Farrakhan has also taught us that the Holy Qur’an is a Message from God that can only be understood more clearly as we develop our understanding of the science of God’s universe.
This brings us to what is this "jinn"? Could the "jinn" actually be talking about the "gene", a part of man that has been unseen until recently? The word "gene" comes from the Greek "genea" which means "generation" or "race". So could a "gene"(race) representing a fiery (red) nature of man have been locked within the chromosomes of Black people? Remember that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught that before 6,600 years ago there was no white race of people, just Black. Starting 6,600 years ago on the Island of Patmos in the Aegean Sea, it took Mr. Yakub and his laborers 600 years of grafting to finally produce a completely white race.
Now let us fast-forward to today and the latest genetic research:
"Still Evolving, Human Genes Tell New Story", by NICHOLAS WADE, March 7, 2006
"There is ample evidence that selection has been a major
driving point in our evolution during the last 10,000
years, and there is no reason to suppose that it has
stopped," said Jonathan Pritchard, a population
geneticist at the University of Chicago who headed the
Their data is based on DNA changes in three populations
gathered by the HapMap project, which built on the
decoding of the human genome in 2003. The data, though
collected to help identify variant genes that contribute
to disease, also give evidence of evolutionary change…
Dr. Pritchard estimates that the average point at which
the selected genes started to become more common under
the pressure of natural selection is 10,800 years ago in
the African population and 6,600 years ago in the Asian
and European populations.
Skeletons similar in form to modern Chinese are hard to
find before that period, Dr. Klein said, and there are
few European skeletons older than 10,000 years that look
like modern Europeans.
Dr. Pritchard's list of selected genes also includes
five that affect skin color. The selected versions of
the genes occur solely in Europeans and are presumably
responsible for pale skin. Anthropologists have
generally assumed that the first modern humans to arrive
in Europe some 45,000 years ago had the dark skin of
their African origins, but soon acquired the paler skin
needed to admit sunlight for vitamin D synthesis.
The finding of five skin genes selected 6,600 years ago
could imply that Europeans acquired their pale skin much
Dr. Pritchard also detected selection at work in brain
genes, including a group known as microcephaly genes
because, when disrupted, they cause people to be born
with unusually small brains."
You do the math.
