“And my brother, Aaron, he is more eloquent in speech than I, so send him with me as a helper to confirm me. Surely I fear that they would reject me. He said: We will strengthen thine arm with thy brother, and We will give you both an authority, so that they shall not reach you. With Our signs, you two and those who follow you, will triumph.”
–Holy Qur’an, Surah 28, verses 34-35

During a recent Believers’ Meeting several weeks ago on a Tuesday evening webcast from Mosque Maryam, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan finalized his address to us with a reference to “The Star” or Al-Najm in the Arabic language numbered as Surah 53 in the Holy Qur’an. This Surah contains three sections and 62 verses. In our first observation, we will note that all these numbers add up to 19 (53+3+62=19). In the Footnote 2371 of the opening verse “By the star when it sets,” we read the primary meaning of this word, The Star or Al-Najm, as referring to the Star

System of the Pleiades. …“The Arabs believed that when Al-Najm (The Pleiades) rose in the morning, disasters and calamities came to an end.” Thus, we have the word Najm: “The Arabs believed that between its rising in the morning and its disappearance, there are diseases and plagues and calamities for men and camels and fruits. In the setting of the star, the opponents are warned of the calamities which would soon overtake them; their star of fortune was about to set.” …


Another meaning is given to the Revelation of the Holy Qur’an in proportion to the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) over a period of 23 years over his lifetime. … “And it is said that by this (i.e., Najm) is meant the Qur’an as revealed in portions one part after another.” … “And evidence that the Prophet (PBUH) errs not–He is in the right. Thus, there is a reference here to the internal evidence which is offered in every portion of the Qur’an that it is the Truth.”

Under this sign of the star, the Honorable Minister Farrakhan made a reference to the timing of his own departure as perceived in his vision-like experience on The Wheel while in direct communication with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He continues quoting from Surah 53, verses 2-12: “Your companion errs not, nor does he deviate. Nor does he speak out of desire. It is naught but revelation that is revealed–One Mighty in Power has taught him, The Lord of Strength. So he attained to perfection, And he is in the highest part of the horizon. Then he drew near, drew nearer yet. So he was the measure of two bows or closer still. So He revealed to His servant what He revealed. The heart was not untrue in seeing what we saw. Do you then dispute with him as to what he saw?”

This mystical language of the Holy Qur’an makes several references to the past as well as to the present and the future being perfect all at once. These words capture the essence of the Honorable Minister Farrakhan’s ascension to meet his Lord for a second time and captures the vision-like experience he had on The Wheel when the Holy Qur’an speaks of another or second descent, and is referring to the second meeting that the Honorable Minister Farrakhan was told would take place from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad at the proper time. It is interesting to note that Master W. Fard Muhammad was exactly 53-years-old when he made himself known in America in 1930. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad was 33-years-old at that time, a 20-year difference in their ages. The Honorable Minister Farrakhan will reach his 33rd year in 2010 since becoming the great helper of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in bearing the task of the spiritual and mental Resurrection of our people since he stood up in 1977.

We must remember, according to the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, that there is always an astronomical sign in the heavens above that corresponds to every major event that is taking place on our earth. By making these connections, we are more prepared for our entrance into God’s New World Kingdom to come. According to the study of scholars and scientists, both in the East and in the West, the central star of Alcyone in the Star System of the Pleiades, determines the movement of our solar system of the Sun and her nine planets. Our complete revolution through the 12 zodiacal Constellation of Stars occurs once every 25,920 years or 26,000 years. According to author and scholar Rudolfo Benavides in his book: “Dramatic Prophecies of the Great Pyramid” has titled one of his chapters, “Alcyone.” He is referring to the central star or sun made up of six other suns or stars in the Pleiades.

In the Great Pyramid of Egypt, the ascending passageway points to this star, Alcyone in the Pleiades. “Visible to the naked eye, the Pleiades were a well-known group of stars in ancient times, belonging to the Constellation Taurus. … The astronomer Jose Comas Sola made a special study of this cluster and after many years of personal and photographic observations concluded that the sixth brightest stars at least (seven if Alcyone is included) form a system that is they are not stars following independent patterns of movement but are all governed by a gravitational center like the planets of our solar system. Other astronomers, after meticulous study, have further concluded that the Pleiades are, in fact, a system of suns revolving Alcyone, the largest and brightest of the cluster. Oriental astrophysics recognizes Alcyone as the center of the orbit of our sun. The balance of the earth’s axis and the precession of the equinoxes are probably also determined by Alcyone.”

Let us be reminded that the civilization on the Mother’s Wheel is far superior to anything ever known; and as we exhaust the wisdom of this world and time that we have known, even greater Knowledge about ourselves and our unlimited universe of worlds will be revealed. We are only scratching the surface of what is yet to be revealed. As the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan continues to reveal in the Holy Qur’an, Surah 53, verses 13-18: “And certainly he saw Him in another descent, At the farthest lote-tree. Near it is the Garden of Abode. When that which covers covered the lote-tree; The eye turned not aside, nor did it exceed the limit. Certainly he saw of the greatest signs of his Lord.”

“And Pharaoh said: O chiefs, I know no god for you besides myself; so kindle a fire for me, O Haman, on (bricks of) clay, then prepare for me a lofty building, so that I may obtain knowledge of Moses’ God, and surely I think him a liar. And he was unjustly proud in the land, he and his hosts, and they deemed that they would not be brought back to Us. So We caught hold of him and his hosts, then We cast them into the sea, and see what was the end of the iniquitous.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 28, verses 38-40
