Minister Louis Farrakhan’s Vision-Like Experience Confirms That The Honorable Elijah Muhammad Lives
[Editor’s note: The following is the third and final installment of excerpts from an address delivered by Mother Tynnetta Muhammad to the Nation of Islam Laborers’ Conference held Sept. 6-9, 2007, hosted by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan at the Michigan Farm.]
“Say: Who guards you by night and by day from the Beneficent? Nay, they turn away at the mention of their Lord. Or, have they gods who can defend them against Us? They cannot help themselves, nor can they be defended from Us. Nay, We gave provision to these and their fathers, until life was prolonged to them. See they not then that We are visiting the land, curtailing it of its sides? Can they then prevail?” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 21, verses 42-44
Now, as I close, the importance of the Lessons and why, throughout all these years, I was reviewing my own history since the departure of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in 1975, how have I been so focused on the Supreme Wisdom and the Lessons? Everybody, probably wherever I have visited, I always am on that same theme, “The Importance of the Lessons.” Because, Brothers and Sisters, if you take a look at this little history of Jesus and review it, when he was a little boy in Egypt where he fled with his mother, he went to school. He was reflecting the ambiance and the culture of learning, which the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan put before us as a study. I want you, us, to express and develop a culture of learning.
Well, that vision that he shared with us was not isolated. Where is that rooted? In The God. When He came, we were called students, and then all of a sudden, as we grew to reject and feel that [being a student] was for the past, then we became officials, and as officials we didn’t need to study that; that is only for the new converts coming in. Is that true? So when you come in, any new convert has to do what? Recite the Lessons. As soon as they get into the classroom, they’re expecting some more of this Supreme Wisdom. ‘Oh, wow, this is some wisdom we’ve never heard before!’ Right, but all of a sudden, the atmosphere changes and you come up before captains and lieutenants giving orders and destroying ultimately the spirit for learning; and any learned person that comes in, you try to find a way to boycott his service. True?
So, instead of developing a Culture of Learning as it was in the beginning, 77 years ago in 1930, we have developed a culture of death. So, we’re walking side-by-side with our enemy, as he has developed a culture of death. So, that’s why I’m so happy that Allah (God) has given us another chance, The Last Chance, to do it right.
And that is why I started with myself and talking about titles. Who am I? Who are you? Nothing without Allah. Allah has to be The Guide. Allah has to be The Mind. Allah has to be The Brain.
The more that we nurture each other in this study and come up with New Ideas, New Thoughts; a New Creative Mind that’s Rooted In Our Assignment, do not take on mixed instructions. Only those who are being examined today.
Master Fard Muhammad is present. He is not dead. He’s not buried in a grave somewhere.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad is not dead. He’s not buried in a crypt somewhere out in the cemetery. If we had more time, another time, we could share or I could share with you the evidence that he lives.
How in the world could the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan be taken up on The Wheel and hear the voice of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad dictating to him every step of the way that we have come? How dare we insult The Intelligence of Almighty God, Allah? It is now time To Grow Up In The Spirit of Truth, and know that He lives–and begin to preach that sermon.
Long Live Muhammad!!!
“Say: I warn you only by revelation; and the deaf hear not the call when they are warned. And if a blast of the chastisement of thy Lord were to touch them, they would say: O woe to us! Surely we were unjust. And We will set up a just balance on the day of Resurrection, so no soul will be wronged in the least. And if there be the weight of a grain of mustard seed, We will bring it. And Sufficient are We to take account.”–Holy Qur’an, Surah 21, verses 45-47
