“A New Beginning” in the Midst of Chaos and Confusion

“And thus do We recompense him who is extravagant and believes not in the messages of his Lord. And certainly the chastisement of the Hereafter is severer and more lasting.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 20, verse 127
As I open this article, I wish to thank two extraordinary sisters, Anita and Leah Muhammad, for their in depth witnessing of the far away place of Mongolia as companion travelers with me and for their sacrifice and incredible contributions to the ongoing journey of our Nation into future worlds.
In one of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s speeches on the weekend of the rededication of Mosque Maryam on the theme of “A New Beginning,” he referred to a conversation that took place between us in 1976 on July 4th in which I asked him why he didn’t stand up immediately at the time of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s departure. He responded that he did not want to fight over leadership, and further commented that if he believed that such a move would have only been for a few years, perhaps he would have done so; and he didn’t want to cause division among the people.
Because I was guided by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad to read the Holy Qur’an daily, I recognized that his words were nearly identical to the words uttered by Aaron to Moses upon his return in Surah 20 of the Holy Qur’an entitled: “TaHa.” I herein quote verses 92 through 94: “(Moses) said: O Aaron, what prevented thee, when thou sawest them going astray, That thou didst not follow me? Hast thou, then, disobeyed my order? He said: O son of my mother, seize me not by my beard, nor by my head. Surely I was afraid lest thou shouldst say: Thou hast caused division among the Children of Israel and not waited for my word.” Quietly to myself, I said nothing to him but retained the thoughts from my reading of the Holy Qur’an that he was the Aaron of the scriptures whom Moses chose to help him as did the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Keeping that thought in mind, I continued my studies on the Divine Work and Teachings of my Husband, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, awaiting the news that he would soon stand up.
Approximately a little better than one year from that time in September of the next year, he came forth as a bright and shining one and announced his intention to help rebuild the Nation of Islam and the Divine Work of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. And so it came to pass that I, accompanied by my young son, Ishmael, boarded a plane to Chicago from Oakland, California, to find the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and his family. In October 1977, I arrived at his Chicago residence on Damen Avenue to greet Mother Khadijah with Brother Jabril Muhammad unexpectedly at the door. Since that time, I have worked out a time line of events which paralleled or precede by one year or so in advance certain developments in my life studies and journey that ultimately connect to his Divine Work on a telephathic frequency always seeing or traveling into future worlds of thought.
Now, once again over the past five years of my studies and travels to Mongolia, I have found another exceedingly important link and connection to this evolving story of the Life of Muhammad and the Revelations of the Holy Qur’an with the enigmatic leader of the Mongolian Nation, Genghis Khan to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his great helper, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and the rise of the Nation of Islam on this farthest Western horizon in America. The following series of articles will render my testimony to this incredible discovery. First transmitted through my Mongolian vision experienced in 1984 in Ethiopia, Africa, near the branch of the Blue Nile near the location where Moses traveled in search of knowledge as we read in Surah 18 of the Holy Qur’an entitled, “Al-Kahf: The Cave.”
It is not a coincidence that my present musical work entitled: TaHa is being prepared for its premiere engagement, both in America and abroad, in the upcoming year 2009, Inshallah! What is the significance of this work? Is it part of the ongoing Cultural Revolution? How do all these pieces of the puzzle and the histories of other people connect to us living in the West? Let us read on to unfold more knowledge a little at a time, the progressive revelation of Almighty God Allah!
“Does it not manifest to them how many of the generations, in whose dwellings they go about, We destroyed before them? Surely there are signs in this for men of understanding. And had not a word gone forth from thy Lord, and a term been fixed, it would surely have overtaken them.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 20, verses 128-129
