As the Revealed Word of Allah teach us, Prophets of God are raised from amongst their own people as verified by the following scriptures. Our Prophet and Founder Noble Drew Ali was and is no different. All Prophets of Allah are influenced by their cultural, social, and intellectual environment. One’s life experience provides the backdrop of the soul’s evolution and transformation.
M.H.K. 2:26-28: "And when the world is ready to receive, lo, Allah will send a messenger to open the book and copy from its sacred pages all the messages of Purity and Love. Then every man of earth will read the words of life in language of his native land, and men will see the light, walk in the light and be the light. And man again will be at one with Allah."
Surah 10:47: "And for every nation there is a messenger. And when their messenger cometh (on the Day of Judgment) it will be judged between them fairly, and they will not be wronged."
Surah 14:4: "We sent not an apostle except (to teach) in the language of his (own) people, in order to make (things) clear to them. Now Allah leaves straying those whom He pleases and guides whom He pleases: and He is Exalted in power, full of Wisdom."
Deuteronomy 18:18-19: "I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him."
