“Those who are driven from their homes without a just cause except that they say: Our Lord is Allah. And if Allah did not repel some people by others, cloisters, and churches, and synagogues, and mosques in which Allah’s name is much remembered, would have been pulled down. And surely Allah is Strong, Mighty.”–Holy Qur’an, Surah 22, Verse 40.
As I entered the car with my new companions who transported me to my place of abode in Mongolia in subzero temperatures, many more questions were racing through my mind about this stage of my journey as I sought to understand and unravel the deeper meaning of my Mongolian Vision which began in the summer of 1984 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I remembered the presence on that journey to Africa of Mother Khadijah Farrakhan and Sister Shirley Muhammad from Boston, Massachusetts along with others. Each one of us having had our own special experience, of which Mother Khadijah was most touched with her past memories of having been there before with a special kinship relation to our Ethiopian Family.
As I continued to recall all the circumstances of my vision which connected me to all those who participated in that special journey to Egypt and Ethiopia, it was my youngest son, Ahmad Muhammad, who stood out vividly in my mind, with his own special spiritual gifts that he shared with the group. His shared insights began in Egypt, when everyone teasingly referred him as Akhenaton, because of his long, slender face with his slightly tilted large eyes, added to his long and slender frame. So there we were, all grouped together as many companions forming a common destiny and experiencing the reality of that special moment of Time and what it holds for us.
How, I wondered, was I specially linked to Khublai Khan, the final Ruler from among the descendants of Ghengis Khan who spread their Golden Empire over more territory than any other Rulers in the ancient world, holding power over Asia, parts of Russia, the Middle East and parts of Europe right up to the early and middle 14th Century? It was under the Rulership of Khublai Khan, who founded the Yuan Dynasty in Beijing, (known then as Dadu), in China, when Marco Polo traveled from Vienna with his Father to visit the Great Khan at his new capital. What is the spiritual and historical bonding that is taking place between the Khan Family in the past history with our own Family and Nation in America? Why did Master W.F. Muhammad refer to us as the Lost Nation of Asia? How does all of this past history relate or connect us to the present and future perfect tense in the course of Universal Knowledge and Civilization?
How does this study link us to the genealogy of The Great Mahdi, Master Fard Muhammad on his Mother’s side, who was chosen from among the peoples and hills of the Caucasus Mountains lying northeast of Mongolia? The Mongolians were mixed in with nomadic Turkish tribes who had settled in the area along with Tatars and others stretching throughout Central Asia, with a huge Muslim population of the Khazaks and others who border Mongolia on the West and who also live within her own present borders. It is the country of Khazakstan, which also borders the Autonomous Republic of Al-Tai in Siberia, which forms a part of modern day Russia today.
Traveling westward and North from this region, we touch upon other Islamic States, such as Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmanistan. Then we enter the famous Kyber pass in Afghanistan and weave through the famous cities of Samarkhan, Bokhara, the Valley and Principality of Hunza which is reached through the Gilgit Pass north of Pakistan.
These are some of the countries that are referred to as the hills of Central Asia or Eurasia that are comprised of various peoples representing nomadic tribes and cultures with Turkish origins to Mongolians and/or Tatars, to Huns and Cossacks in Russia running through the Caucasus Mountains. This is a most important geographical and historical region to study as we enter into the 21st Century and Third Millennium.
“How many a town We destroyed while it was iniquitous, so it is fallen down upon its roofs; and (how many) a deserted well and palace raised high! Have they not traveled in the land so that they should have hearts with which to understand or ears with which to hear? For surely it not the eyes that are blind, but blind are the hearts which are in the breasts.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 22, Verses 45-46.
