“Surely the (true) religion with Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Book differed only after knowledge had come to them, out of envy among themselves. And whoever disbelieves in the messages of Allah–Allah indeed is Quick at reckoning.”-Holy Qur’an, Surah 3, Verse 18

[Note: In the last issue the explanation of the formula E=mc2 included the word math. The correct reading should be, “This formula, simply stated, implies that the mass…”]

In continuation of last week’s article on the soul’s journey into the world of thought, with a spiritual analysis of the well known mathematical equation introduced by Einstein, E=mc2, I made a reference to the use of these letters, numbers and words to Master Fard Muhammad’s Divine work and that of His chosen servant the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. I transposed the value of those letters, numbers and words to their spiritual meaning of relativity to the laws of physics and our material universe. I used this scientific approach as a basis to prove how the Honorable Elijah Muhammad escaped from a death plot in 1975 and is living beyond our three dimensional world of space time.

Many years ago, in the early 1980’s, I had a dream in which I was interacting with a few persons seated in the presence of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He turned to me and invited me to ask any question that was on my mind. I asked him to give me the scientific explanation of how he escaped from the death plot. He gave me the answer in very simple terms. The next night the dream sequence continued, the details of which I will explain in a forth coming article, God Willing.

The discovery of a unified Field Theory in physics was the next most important discovery that Einstein desired to uncover. But a true unified field can only be discovered when we understand the nature that governs the whole body of the laws of creation and the oneness of God of which we form a unified part. Islam is not a religious system, but rather the nature of existence or being in submission to the will of God which brings us into perfect harmony and peace.

Returning to the time line that was announced about the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s demise, I would like to share the following testimony. It was on the day of February 25, 1975 when it was announced that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad died in Chicago’s Mercy Hospital from congestive heart failure. I remembered going to my children reluctantly to tell them about this announcement. I then went to the telephone to make a call to the Mexican family who was caring for my two younger sons. The lady told me quite emphatically that she didn’t believe that he was dead. She instructed me to go quickly to the funeral parlor and place my finger or thumb on his pulse and on his jugular vein. She further stated that if it was still warm then he was not dead. I then turned to Sister Ethel Sharrief, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s eldest daughter, now deceased, and to her husband Brother Raymond Sharrief, also deceased, to take me to the funeral parlor so I could view his body. I was permitted to go, even though we were told that no one was to officially visit at that time. They agreed to accompany me and we drove somberly to Griffith Funeral parlor where his body lay on the funeral bier. I asked for the sheet to be pulled back and I began my examination of the body with those instructions that I received. I placed my hand on his pulse and on his jugular vein and truly, as was stated, it was still quite warm to the touch. The funeral parlor director explained that it was considered normal and that within 24 hours, the temperature in the room would lower and his body would be cold.

Shortly thereafter, not being convinced with that answer, I departed and upon returning to his residence, I found one of the eldest sons of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and prevailed upon him not to order the autopsy during the next two days, to which he agreed. It was my son, Ishmael, who had furnished me with another important key to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s appearance of death. On one occasion he questioned his father, at the tender age of 8, to explain to him what happens to a person after they are pronounced dead and he answered saying that if a person is a good and righteous being and a true servant of God, that if He (Allah) reaches the body within a 24 to 48 hour period, He can restore that person back to life.

“But if they dispute with thee say: I submit myself entirely to Allah and (so does) he who follows me. And say to those who have been given the Book and the Unlearned (people): Do you submit yourselves? If they submit, then indeed they follow the right way; and if they turn back, thy duty is only to deliver the message. And Allah is Seer of the servants.”-Holy Qur’an, Surah 3, Verse 19
