“Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth. A likeness of His light is as a pillar on which is a lamp–the lamp is in a glass, the glass is as it were a brightly shining star–lit from a blessed olive-tree, neither eastern nor western, the oil whereof gives light, though fire touch it not–light upon light. Allah guides to His light whom He pleases. And Allah sets forth parables for men, and Allah is Knower of all things–(It is) in houses which Allah has permitted to be exalted and His name to be remembered therein.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 24, verses 35-36

As we continue our prayers for the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s recovery and healing across this country and around the world, I would like to reinforce a special prayer service that is based upon the extraordinary power of God’s Divine Light. Around the dome of Mosque Maryam is inscribed in Arabic calligraphy, the Mystical Verse of Light appearing in Surah 24, verse 35. This work was carried out by some of the foremost artists skilled in the art of Arabic calligraphy from Istanbul, Turkey, who traveled to Chicago to renovate our headquarter’s mosque on Stony Island, under the direction of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in 1988 prior to its dedication in February, 1989.

Around the circular dome are 24 windows, and painted in the ceiling of the dome is an eight-pointed star. The dome rises upon a wall constructed with four pillars bearing the Arabic Name Allah (God) alone. As we continue in our prayers for the Honorable Minister Farrakhan’s complete recovery and healing, let us focus our attention on this image of the dome of Mosque Maryam and its message of Divine Light.


While addressing the Believers in Cleveland, Ohio, on the subject of “Ohio Prays for Farrakhan,” I envisioned a particular prayer service focusing on the appearance of this Divine Light, visible high in the sky on a particular day in the Mexican village of Tepotzlán, in the latter part of September 2001, viewed by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and several witnesses.

Among the witnesses was Mr. Carlos Diaz, who has photographed this extraordinary phenomenon of ships of light in Tepotzlán for more than 20 years and has firsthand information concerning the essence of this conscious light. In a recent meeting with Mr. Diaz, accompanied by several members of my family in Tepotzlán, in the latter part of December, 2006, he unveiled more deepening insights about the work of these ships of light and their effect upon the human psyche. He explained that the image of light and its force field, coming from the outside, must be drawn inwardly for purification and healing. When this is accomplished, we become the vessels of light in its broadest expression of unconditional and universal love. At this vibratory rate or frequency, the light itself emits sound and is capable of reconstructing the cells of our body so that we become ageless and are transformed into light bodies that produce a resonance field of healing that extends throughout our entire planet.

As I shared this information with the Believers in the audience on January 13 and 14 in Ohio, I incorporated this experience along with a photo presentation of our special prayer service that was conducted in the State of Chiapas at the archeological site of Palenque, conducted by the two shamans, father and son team, from the Lacandon jungle. They introduced to us the healing frequencies and meaning of the Crystal Skull. The prayers conducted in the ceremony took place one day prior to the Minister’s surgery and focused on this light reflected from the Crystal Skull with its electromagnetic energy for the healing of the Honorable Minister Farrakhan in the name of Allah (God).

Pismis 24-1, about 8,000 light-years away from Earth, was thought to have an incredibly large mass of 200 to 300 solar masses.

Our small group experienced an unbelievable heightening of electric energy, which was verified the next day in the events that took place on that day, and in the evening when we were startled by the appearance of starships overhead. This occurred during the last several hours of the Honorable Minister Farrakhan’s surgery. We saw variations of color sparkling from these objects which were in motion.

It was during that time when I was speaking with my son, Minister Ishmael Muhammad, and Mother Khadijah Farrakhan in the hospital, learning more details on the doctor’s prognosis of the Minister’s progress, I shared with them what we were observing in the skies above, along with details about the special prayer ceremony conducted on the previous day. Mother Khadijah was greatly impressed about this special prayer service and said that she would convey this message to her husband. She wanted to be sure that I had recorded and photographed the ceremony, which has been accomplished and published in our Final Call newspaper.

Light travels at 186,000 miles per second, sound travels at the rate of 1,120 feet per second and the average thought travels at 24,000,000,000 miles per second. Crystal amplifies our thinking process and vibrates messages at milliseconds of degrees traveling faster than the speed of light. The capacity of the Crystal Skull is an amplifier of our thoughts traveling at 24,000,000,000 miles per second increasing the vibratory rate. When the Honorable Minister Farrakhan viewed this bright light in Tepoztlán in the middle of the day, it appeared like a crystal diamond in the sky. At one point it pulsated as if communicating directly with him.

What I proposed in Cleveland, Ohio, I will now share with our readers who believe in the power of prayer beginning with the “Fajr” or Morning Prayer. We begin by stating our intention silently, standing upright, offering our two rakahs of the morning prayer service. We stand at attention to the Lord of all the worlds, submitting ourselves to Him and Him alone. We must then visualize this single bright light that is pulsating and radiating in all four directions, as we are drawn into this light as described in the verse of Light quoted above in Surah 24. We then bow our heads with our hands placed over our abdomen, and recite Al-Fatihah only. (The Fard portion of the prayer.)

The next position is bowing to the knees, reciting Allah-u-Akbar, then standing upright again in preparation for prostration; and then kneeling, prostrating again, then rising upright to recite the second rakah of the morning prayer.

In the second rakah of the Morning Prayer Service when reaching the kneeling position, recite your salaams to the right and left; then take the position of Duha, with hands upright, while in the kneeling position, then silently call for blessings and healing for the Honorable Minister Farrakhan, and call for peace and blessings upon his family, and peace and blessings for all the families of the Believers.

We are to repeat this morning prayer service everyday of the week leading up to our Saviours’ Day event in Detroit, MI, February 25, 2007. Following the prayer service, read at your leisure any portion of the Holy Qur’an.

And those who disbelieve, their deeds are as a mirage in a desert, which the thirsty man deems to be water, until, when he comes to it, he finds it naught, and he finds Allah (God) with him, so He pays him his due. And Allah (God) is Swift at reckoning–Or like darkness in the deep sea–there covers him a wave, above which is a wave, above which is a cloud–(layers of) darkness one above another–when he holds out his hand, he is almost unable to see it. And to whom Allah (God) gives not light, he has no light.”–Holy Qur’an, Surah 24, verses 39-40
