Is the Honorable Elijah Muhammad still alive? Is this question related to the question: Is Jesus still alive, who lived 2,000 years ago? Should these questions be the basis for argument? What kind of argument should we get into and why? Should we get very angry at this statement? Why?
This is a critical, or decisive question, which is of the most important, truth. I’m using his exact words, in this article. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said to me, “This is the most critical part of scripture with me Brother.”
I wrote his statement in a book. Allah willing, you will see in my next article, why I’ve used his words, in this article.
In the last four articles, I’ve made Brother Joshua Farrakhan’s experience public, which backs up his father’s experience. That is, that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad escaped from a death plot in 1975 and is still living today, plus.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan made his experience public, when he saw what he saw and heard what he heard from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
There is no way that anybody can claim to know him and then ignore his experience without telling or writing the full truth. He made this truth very public.
“And it behooves not a believing man or a believing woman when Allah and His Messenger have decided an affair, to exercise a choice in their matter. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he surely strays off to manifest error.” (Holy Qur’an 33:36)
“Only those accept who listen.” (Holy Quran 6:36)
Both verses are from the Muhammad Ali translation.
“Call to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and goodly exhortation, and argue with them in the best manner. Surely thy Lord knows best him who strays from His path, and He knows best those who go a-right. (Holy Quran, Muhammad Ali 16:125)
“Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance.” (Holy Quran, A. Yusuf Ali 16:125)
What does the word “argue” mean, in this book–the Holy Qur’an? I’ve just quoted one English version from the Yusuf Ali translation.
If you are a “believer” in the Supreme Being, as taught by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and now through the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, how much do you see or understand that we are living at the end of this world’s time.
I’m aware that others have different views, or interpretations, regarding the end of the world. There are many people who see this in many ways.
Christians, Jews and Muslims see that we are living at the end of this world’s time. You can see their views from their scholars; teachers, etc. All of them say they believe in the scriptures.
Minister Farrakhan has invited the wise and powerful Jews and others, earlier this year into an intelligent discussion to solve the problems between us.
How did the powerful Jews really react? How did Master Fard Muhammad and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad react? How have others reacted?
I intend to make clear why I put this photograph of Minister Farrakhan’s daughter in my article and why she permitted me to take it, in my next article, Allah willing.
I’ve wrote that the wicked thought they killed the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. I’ve mentioned this in a few articles, years ago. I’ve also put Sister Betsy Jean Farrakhan’s words in a book.
Among those, in and out of the hospital, visiting the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, when he was in a hospital, was Mother Tynnetta Muhammad. Below are some excerpts from an interview with Mother Tynnetta.
Brother Jabril Muhammad (JM): I don’t think it’s really public knowl-edge, except to the extent people know this about the Minister’s public pronouncements, that there was a plot to murder the Honor-able Elijah Muhammad in 1975.
Certainly, many of us have deduced this from this and that. Then some of us–I have no idea how many, al-though I think the number is small–heard the Honorable Elijah Muhammad actually say that there would be such a plot–a specific plot–of such nature, magnitude and scope that, as he said to a few (including me) that only Allah could save him from it.
Now, did he ever speak to you, generally or specifically, about any kind of plot-ting against his life, at any point in time just prior to his departure February 1975?
Mother Tynnetta Muhammad (MTM): Yes. He did. His first discussion with me of such a plot actually began in Mexico in 1974, around the latter part of 1974, because that was the last trip that we all took together in December. Actually it was Christmas Eve.
I recall that we had to refuel in Houston, or one part of Texas. I can’t remember, right now, if it was Houston, but I believe it was. And from there, after the refueling, we landed in Mexico City.
JM: His and your arrival in Mexico, on Christmas Eve, is always fascinating to me, as I told you back in 1977, that was the day I was arrested for murder and what not. It was two days later, while I was still in jail, while reading a borrowed Bible, in Psalms, to comfort myself, when it came to me, that right then the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was in his “Gethse-mane.”
I can only say it came from Allah. I don’t know how else to explain what came to me. Two days after that, when I got out, I telephoned Dr. Salaam, who was in Chicago, and told this to him.
Now, I’m skipping much now, to get Mother Tynnetta’s next words.
MTM: Yes sir. I mean how I got this information is kind of mysti-fying to me because nobody seems to know about it. But I know the Honorable Elijah Muhammad requested not to leave on the 26th. And this man had something to do with it. I don’t know how I know this, unless it was telepathically.
But I know that he requested not to leave and then sure enough, he did. He left on the 25th. So that was letting me know that this was a carefully designed depar-ture. That only those whom God would reveal it to would know.
JM: Did you see this man at any other time?
MTM: Yes. Once after the hospital, after the announcement that he had passed, he came to the Palace, on either that day or the next day. And I remember again, he sat down in the living room.
He didn’t talk to anybody. I don’t know who he came to see, or who, he came to talk to. But I observed him again, and I said “My good-ness.”
So that would make four times that I can recall clearly that I saw him, once at the dinner table, once at the hospital, and once at the Palace, and after the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was announced dead in the hospital.
JM: But you also saw him during Saviours’ Day 1974?
More next issue, Allah willing.
