In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful Most Gracious
33: As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, will I rule over you:
34: And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out.
35: And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face.
36: Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord GOD.
New worlds’ Rebuke of Old World
There is increasing modern scientific evidence that voyages brought syphilis back from the New World. Many of the crew members who served on those voyages later joined the army of King Charles VIII in his invasion of Italy in 1495 resulting in the spreading of the disease across Europe and as many at 5 million deaths.
Disease and population loss
The European and Asian lifestyle included a long history of sharing close quarters with domesticated animals such as cows, pigs, sheep, goats, horses, and various domesticated fowl, which had resulted in epidemic diseases unknown in the Americas. Thus the large-scale contact with Europeans after 1492 introduced novel germs to the indigenous people of the Americas.
Epidemics of smallpox (1518, 1521, 1525, 1558, 1589), typhus (1546), influenza 1558, diphtheria (1614) and measles 1618 swept ahead of initial European contact, killing between 10 million and 112 million people, about 95% to 98% of the indigenous population. This population loss and the cultural chaos and political collapses it caused greatly facilitated both colonization of the land and the conquest of the native civilizations.
Smallpox was particularly successful in virgin populations. The Spanish inadvertently owe much of their success in conquering the Aztecs and Incas in Mexico in the 16th century to smallpox. Unlike the Spanish, the native Indians had no immunity to the disease, having never encountered it before. It wiped out huge numbers of them. A century later the North American Indians suffered a similar devastation. In the 18th century smallpox decimated the aborigines when it reached Australia, the last corner of the world to have escaped its ravages.
Let us give praise for the coming of our God Allah, Who came in the person of Master Fard Muhammad.
