“I, Allah, am the Best Knower. The revelation of the Book, there is no doubt in it, is from the Lord of the worlds. Or do they say: He has forged it? Nay, it is the Truth from thy Lord that thou mayest warn a people to whom no warner has come before thee that they may walk aright.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 32, verses 1-3
While preparing the continuation of our series on reflections from Bimini in the Bahamas during the month of May, I received a communiquÃ© in an email on the morning of the publication of our Final Call newspaper from Sister Callie Muhammad, with a breaking news release which focused on the discovery of a Giant Crystal Pyramid found in the waters of the Bermuda Triangle, not too far from the island of Bimini. Researchers and scientists have pointed to this particular vortex of energy called The Bermuda Triangle as the place where important parts of the Atlantean Civilization would be located in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean in the Caribbean.
In our orientation on the island, our group of investigators from the Mxodus Team listened intently to our guide and gatekeeper of Atlantis, educator, professor and author, Dr. Ashley B. Saunders, who carried us through many important highlights of the past and present world of Atlantis and how he was assigned to this particular post. I have known Dr. Saunders and some members of his family for 16 years, and now, many more have come to know him and his special gift and particularly in our last journey, we came to feel like members of the past Atlantean culture and civilization relived in this present moment of time and discovery.
Now, the following words are some of the Reflections from Bimini by Sister Landra Muhammad, from New Jersey, a first-time welcomed visitor, on our last Mxodus Tour.
My travel to the island of Bimini with Mother Tynnetta Muhammad, the Mxodus Team and a group of students from MUI-Detroit was the living of the Supreme Wisdom versus reading it. Beginning immediately with the Actual Facts, the measurements of the area of the water, (the Atlantic Ocean in particular) and of course the measurement of the Islands. After accepting the Teachings of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, taught to him by Master Fard Muhammad and represented by The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, we, the students learned that the islands are 1,910,100 square miles, and flying over the Atlantic Ocean and seeing islands near and far, of all shapes and sizes transformed that statement into a reality.
Immediately upon my arrival to the island, I felt completely at home, coupled with a very strong sense of family. At the same time witnessing the question and answer, Who is the Original man? as all of the faces that I was now gazing upon were those of original people. From the smiles of the people, warm hospitality, the waving acknowledgment of everyone that passed by on the street, to even the sandy terrain of this sand dune of an island was familiar to my spirit. So much so that I kept telling my traveling companions that I felt like I was in South Carolina visiting with my family. This feeling was so prominent that at one point this overwhelming feeling caused me to break out into tears because of the strong sense of connection belonging on the island along with the sensation of family.
Lost-Found Muslim Lesson 1, Question 14 was constantly being witnessed. From the gracious sister that hosted our entire group in her meticiously maintained home for delightful dinner, the tour guide for our day trip on the island of Andros, to the sister artisans that crafted beautiful hats, bowls, handbags and colorful printed fabrics. There were no children running around acting other than themselves. And they, like their adult counterparts, were all quite gracious and extremely polite. We easily made friends with the sister vendors in the town square, sharing smiles, stories and suggestions on how to prevent the sand flies from feasting upon us. (smile)
The Problem Book question 13 states: “Sit yourself in Heaven at once! This is the greatest Desire of your Brother and Teachers.” The Dolphin House builder and owner, The “Gatekeeper to Atlantis,” Dr. Sanders, in my opinion, is one of those teachers. As a leading scholar of the city of Atlantis, he taught us for several hours on the history of the Atlanteans, the island and holistic medicine (Bush Medicine) that has been used on the island for decades. Because he is the “Gatekeeper to Atlantis,” anyone coming into the area to study, must see him, either coming or going and submit to him any Atlantean artifacts located. Unlike stolen Egyptian and Mexican artifacts, artifacts here are not to be removed from the island. They are all to be left with him for safekeeping. While teaching us on the history of the island, he included ‘how’ many of the Original people made their way there. When he mentioned runaway slaves that had come from the Carolinas, it verified my feeling of family and connection to the island; and I was pleased to understand that connection as it verified my sense of belonging.
Without a doubt, this trip was divinely guided, as Mother Tynnetta is in tune with her husband, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, and he is giving her hints and signs in regards to her steps. This was witnessed throughout the trip as there were several occasions that our itinerary was revised due to weather or other unforeseen activities, including postponing a trip to a sister island and instead we had a meeting with a wonderful and prominent figure on the island. We were invited to attend an Agricultural Meeting at the local high school. As in English Lesson C-1, the salesmen (traders) there were trying to make an interpretation that the people of the island would receive more GOLD, in this case food, for their labor. They were unable to disappear without being thoroughly questioned by the group on this unnatural food growing product that they were trying to introduce to the island.
We all agreed that years down the road when many would become sick from the food, the trader (and his company) would have been long gone, leaving the people wanting to go back to their own country (growing their own natural food). I was most thankful to Allah that we were present and raising questions which helped the island attendees so that they would not be fooled nowadays.
My participation on this trip was with very little advanced notice. When leaving my home in New Jersey, I wondered to myself, how in the world am I going on this trip and why me? As I mentioned initially, my visit to the island of Bimini helped to bring the lessons alive and I believe has heightened my awareness to all that is happening around me and is allowing me to view my everyday surroundings with a more keen sensitivity. That just might be a part of the reason why I was blessed to go, and I am extremely thankful to have been given this life-changing opportunity!
“Allah is He Who created the heavens and the earth and what is between them in six periods, and He is established on the Throne of Power. You have not besides Him a guardian or an intercessor. Will you not then mind? He orders the Affair from the heaven to the earth; then it will ascend to Him in a day the measure of which is a thousand years as you count.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 32, verses 4-5
