Unveiling the Significance of “A New Beginning”
“And certainly We gave Moses the Book and We appointed with him his brother Aaron, an aider. Then We said: Go you both to the people who reject Our messages. So we destroyed them with utter destruction. And the people of Noah, when they rejected the messengers, We drowned them, and made them a sign for men. And We have prepared a painful chastisement for the wrongdoers” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 25, verses 35-37
As the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan so eloquently addressed a large audience both on the premises of Mosque Maryam and throughout the country on webcast Sunday, October 19th, I reflected over my Mongolian vision which began on a visit to Egypt and Ethiopia in the summer of 1984.
I traveled in the midst of a special group of metaphysicians and historians. During one of our morning meditations on a hillside outside of Addis Ababa, the capitol of Ethiopia, while imagining a seed being planted in the ground, I was transformed into the seed and began sprouting roots which grew into a large tree with branches and foliage. It was at this point when I suddenly left my body and my spirit took flight from there, (A-tone Africa), to (A-tone America), to Mexico’s Sacred Valley in the city of TepoztlÃ¡n, 40 miles south of Mexico City. There I was seated on the side of the Tepozteco Mountains overlooking the valley.
High above me was built a small pyramid complex dedicated to the King of Tepozteco. After recognizing where I was, I took flight once again to the higher mountain ranges of the Himalayas in (A-tone Asia), somewhere near Tibet. I was then told that I was related to the Khublai Khan. Khublai Khan was the last of the ruling Khans and came to dominate over China at the site of Peking or modern day Beijing at the site of the Forbidden City, Museum Palace of today. I wondered why I discovered the facial mask of an African figure wearing the Egyptian headdress or nemesis that is sculptured on the head of the Great Sphinx in the Giza Plateau on the outskirts of Cairo near the Great Pyramid of Egypt.
I wondered over my meeting with the 29th Generation Descendent of Ghengis Khan and how I was related. It was during the summer of this year, prior to my return journey to Mongolia in September when I received correspondence from the office of the World Academy of Ghengis Khan in Ulaanbataar, explaining my historical and spiritual link to the great Khublai Khan. This information appeared in a book that had been handed down from one family member to another over many centuries describing my likeness to the mother of Khublai Khan. At the same time, I found the same information written in a book entitled, “Khublai Khan, his Life and Times” by Morris Rossali.
Beginning on page 11 under the subtitle: “Khublai and His Mother,” it is written the following words: “After the death of Ogobei in 1241, Khublai began to emerge on the historical stage. Khublai’s father had been passed over as the successor to Chingges, and it appeared that Khublia too would play a subsidiary role in Mongol history. Few could have forseen that he would eventually become the most powerful figure in the Mongol domains. One of those who did was his remarkably, competent and intelligent mother, Sorghaghtani Beki.
“She had lofty ambitions for her four sons, and she dedicated herself to their careers. All four eventually became prominent in the Mongol land. Mongke, the oldest, was the Khaghan from 1251 until his death in 1259; Khublai succeeded his older brother and ruled from 1260 to 1294; Hulegu destroyed the Abbasid Dynasty, which had governed much of the Middle East and Persia since 749, and established his own dynasty in Persia; and Arigh Boke, as the youngest son, would rule the Mongol homeland. Sorghaghtani Beki’s contemporaries throughout the known world considered her to be the most remarkable woman of her age.
“The European missionary John of Plano Carpini, who visited Mongolia before her sons became the Khaghans noticed that “among the Tartars, this lady is the most renowned with the exception of the emperor’s mother …” The Rashid historian, Al-Din wrote that she was “extremely intelligent and able and towered above all the women in the world.” A Hebrew physician named Bar Hebraeus praised her as “a queen who trained her sons so well that all the princes marveled at her power of administration… And it was in respect of her that a certain poet said, ‘if I were to see among the race of women another woman like this, I should say that the race of women was far superior to that of men!’”
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that we will find everything written about ourselves in a book. We are taught that the father of Master W. Fard Muhammad sought after and purchased very expensive books and manuscripts belonging to kings and rulers which contained histories pertaining to his son’s work and divine mission to retrieve our lost members of the universal Nation of Islam found scattered in the Western Hemisphere. Now, we are beginning to come face to face with this Great Truth as we evolve more and more into the Supreme Knowledge of Self and of God as One. It is written in the booklet for the Rededication of Mosque Maryam on the 13th Anniversary of the Million Man March and Holy Day of Atonement that in the History of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) during a period of severe persecution that some of his followers migrated to Abyssinia (Ethiopia) in Africa and were honored and respected by the king of that country coming through the revelation of Holy Qur’an, Surah 19 titled, Maryam (Mary).
“And Ad and Thamud and the dwellers of Rass and many generations in between. And to each We gave examples and each did We destroy with utter destruction. And indeed they pass by the town wherein was rained an evil rain. Do they not see it? Nay, they hope not to be raised again. And when they see thee, they take thee for naught but a jest: Is this he whom Allah has raised to be a messenger?” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 25, verses 38-41
