“And when We pointed to Abraham the place of the House, saying: Associate naught with Me, and purify My House for those who make circuits and stand to pray and bow and prostrate themselves. And proclaim to men the Pilgrimage: they will come to thee on foot and on every lean camel, coming from every remote path: That they may witness benefits (provided) for them, and mention the name of Allah on appointed days over what He has given them of the cattle quadrupeds; then eat of them and feed the distressed one, the needy. Then let them accomplish their needful acts of cleansing, and let them fulfill their vows and go round the Ancient House.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 22, verses 26-29
The month of May marked the beginning of the celebration of Mother’s Day on May 14. Five days later, the premiering of the controversial film, The Da Vinci Code, opened at theatres around the country. If we put those numbers together as a single number, we get 145, which, when added together (14+5), equals the opening day of the movie, May 19. Taking another look at those numbers 145, scrambled we get 154. This number 154 happens to coincide with the exact number of questions and answers in our sacred book of Lessons entitled, “The Supreme Wisdom.” This assignment, as I have referred to in many previous articles, was given to us to study by Master W. Fard Muhammad, the Great Teacher of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
Let us take note that historically, May 14, 1989 marked the year of the dedication of our headquartered mosque in Chicago, Ill., renamed Mosque Maryam after the name of the Mother of Jesus. That time 17 years ago also corresponded to the celebration of Mother’s Day, celebrated on Sunday, May 14. This was the first satellite program in the Nation of Islam’s capitol. In last week’s article, we discussed the 26 letters of the English alphabet that appeared on the keystone that was hidden inside of a wooden box or miniature sarcophagus. Inside the box was revealed the sacred code that would lead to the unveiling of the mystery of the Holy Grail. It also contained a map that would ultimately lead one to the discovery of the tomb in which the remains of Mary Magdalene would be found. This map was described as being on papyrus material. It is interesting to note that throughout decoding the mystery of the Holy Grail that every sign led to a connection with Egypt, the land of our forefathers.
In the Fibonacci series of numbers, which begins with one added to itself produces one, then 2 added to the previous number equals 3, then 3 added to the previous number equals 5, then 5 added to the previous number equals 8, then 8 added to the previous number equals 13, then 13 added to the previous number equals 21. If we count each individual integer in this series, (1+1+2+3+5+8+1+3+2+1), it equals 10 numbers. It was these 10 numbers that is referred to in the film as being the password to open up the vault to get to the keystone. In reviewing our Lessons, we are given 26 letters of the English alphabet with 10 Numbers of the Mathematical Language in Problem Number 13.
In continuing the Fibonacci series of numbers going beyond the number 21, adding to it the previous number (21 + 13) equals 34. Add that number to the previous number and you get 55. If you take 55 added to the previous number, you get 89. Now add 89 to the previous number, which is 55, and the sum is 144. When we add up all of these individual integers from 1 through 144, we get the Number 19. The Number 19 lays the basis for the Mathematical Code of the Holy Qur’an discovered by an Egyptian scientist and scholar, Dr. Rashad Khalifah, prior to his assassination. The 19th Chapter of the Holy Qur’an is named “Maryam.” Verses 16-34 reveal the history of Mary giving birth to a Holy son named Jesus. This history is summed up in 19 verses.
In reviewing early church history and the development of Christian Theology, many changes were introduced to the history of Jesus, his birth, his ministry and his death, which greatly altered his truth about Jesus and his relationship to his disciples and the people of Palestine, many of whom became his followers. During the Middle Ages, about 1000 A.D. to the start of the Renaissance in the 1500s, a number of myths were born centering around knighthood, chivalry, romantic love, Robin Hood, Richard the Lionhearted, the “nobility” of the Crusades–which was really an attack on the Muslims, in the name of Christian love, introducing the warrior monks, the Knights Templar and the Knights Hospitallar. During the development of these political powers among them, the Templar Order was founded after the first Crusade which took place in Jerusalem in 1127 A.D. It has been implied that through the Knights Templar that they were literally the guardians of the Holy Grail. They were officially formed as an organization at the sight of the Al Aqsa mosque, or Temple Mount, at the sight of King Solomon’s temple. From there it has been rumored that their secret teachings were handed down to present-day Masonic orders, some of which formed the foundation of teachings held secret by the Founding Fathers of this country.
With the impact of the Great Warrior, Salah al-Din and his contact with the Knights Templar, it is believed that the secret teaching of Islam was instituted in secret orders from that time on through the Knights Templar and other secret orders. Approximately 300 years after the death of Jesus is when Christianity became the state religion of Rome under the emperor Constantine. The Nicene Creed was promulgated in 325 A.D. This indicates that the Teaching of Jesus lost its purity and many unknown doctrines crept into the simple faith that Jesus taught. It is interesting to note that the Holy Prophet Muhammad, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, also stated that “three generations after me will no longer be of me.” Three generations is also interpreted as three centuries or 300 years.
The same fate that befell the world of Christianity 300 years after the death of Jesus also befell the Islamic world 300 years after the demise of the Prophet (PBUH). Both worlds, having lost their purity, set the stage for the coming Messiah at the end of the world, who would unite all the faithful of all the world’s religions as one. The movie industry, (Hollywood) is helping to unmask and reveal many of the secrets of time mixing truth with falsehood. They are doing their part in awakening consciousness among masses of people that are searching to discern fact from fiction.
In closing, the “sacred feminine” which is at the center of this film, The Da Vinci Code, is awakening consciousness of women all over the world about the sacredness of the female in relationship to God. The women and girls who are members of the Nation of Islam in America, who hold sacred their training as Muslim girls, we have begun the process of transformation in the creation of a New World Order operating from the Mind of God. There are 14 questions and answers of Lesson No. 1 that ends with the discussion of Training Units for our women and girls on the Number 14. I don’t believe it’s a coincidence that this year Mother’s Day was celebrated on May 14. As stated before, the Number 19, as revealed in Chapter 19 of the Holy Qur’an, points to the model of Mary who represents a sign of all women and mothers in whom the Secret of God resides. From both the film and the book, the Sacredness of Women prevails.
“The Holy Grail Neath ancient Roslin waits the blade and challis guarding o’er Her gates. Adorned in master’s loving art, She lies. She rests at last beneath the starry skies.”–A line from the movie, The Da Vinci Code, when Sophie discovers her bloodline secret.
“That (shall be so). And whoever respects the sacred ordinances of Allah, it is good for him with his Lord. And the cattle are made lawful for you, except that which is recited to you, so shun the filth of the idols and shun false words, Being upright for Allah, not associating aught with Him. And whoever associates (aught) with Allah, it is as if he had fallen from on high, then the birds had snatched him away, or the wind had carried him off to a distant place. That (shall be so). And whoever respects the ordinances of Allah, this is surely from the piety of hearts. Therein are benefits for you for a term appointed, then their place of sacrifice is the Ancient Home.”–Holy Qur’an, Surah 22, verses 30-33
