A few years ago, in January, I was listening to the knowledge of the scientists of this world, over the radio. They were giving their view of the ninth planet that revolves (move in a circular movement) around the Sun.

These scientists said, or wrote, that Pluto–the ninth planet–is very, very small, in terms of its diameter.

Many years later, some of them don’t even consider it as a planet because they saw its diameter tiny. How many of them? I don’t know. What caused them to put this information public? I’ve thought on it.


But you can read, in your computer, that Clyde W. Tombaugh at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona first discovered Pluto in 1930. He was an American astronomer.

You can also read this: “During his lifetime Tombaugh was commonly referred to the only person to discover a planet in our solar system in the 20th Century, but nine years after his 1997 death, the International Astronomic Union reclassified Pluto, demoting it to sub-planetary status.”

They went on to say and write that this astronomer was born on February 4, 1906 and died January 17, 1997. They say that he is well known for his discovery of the planet Pluto.

You can also read this:

“After four years at Lowell Observatory he entered the University of Kansas, while continuing to work at the observatory in his summers. He signed up for Astronomy 101 but was rejected on the grounds that his discovery of Pluto had already made him one of the world’s most famous astronomers, and it would be absurd to accept Tombaugh for such an introductory class.

“During World War II he entered the Navy and was assigned to teach astronomy, and after the war he worked at the White Sands Missile Range in Las Cruces, New Mexico, where he designed the Intercept Ground Optical Recorder super-camera.

“In his astronomical work he also saw several unidentified flying objects, and he was also among the first respected astronomers to call for a serious scientific inquiry into the phenomenon.”

This involves mathematics and more.

A few months later, in the same year, (mentioned above) I read the words from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and Mother Tynnetta Muhammad in The Final Call that involved the ninth planet. Both of them wrote their knowledge that came from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.

How important is this, especially at this time? What is your reaction, or reactions, to this when you first read this here? I know many will say (or write) that they already know this. But, how much?

We can read on the first page in the Problem Book this:

“This book teaches the Lost Found Nation of Islam. A thorough knowledge of our miserable state of condition in a mathematical way, when we were found by our Saviour W.D. Fard.”

At the bottom of the first page we can read this:

“Finder of the Lost Nation of Asia.”

I know that thousands, or millions or more, have read this. I’m asking you, for your reaction to this–not to me, but to yourself–to this article?

This involves Minister Farrakhan, when he spoke in San Diego. This involves the fulfillment of prophecy that you can read in the Bible and the Holy Qur’an.

In the lessons, named the Problem Book, we can read:

“Platoon is four billion, six hundred million miles from the Sun, and she travels the same rate around the Sun as the rest of the Planets; it takes her three hundred forty-five years to make one complete circle around the Sun. Her diameter is sixty-seven thousand miles. Find out the square mileage and the number of miles she travels in three hundred forty-five years.

“All of these are absolute facts and they stand true, figure for figure, by the Study of the Son of Man and not a Spook. (“W.D. FARD”). ”

Why does the Honorable Elijah Muhammad teach us about the words “she” “her” and the word “its,” but not “him”? Why? What are we to learn from the numbers in the Problem Book?

We can read the truth of the ninth planet is larger (or much bigger) in terms of its diameter, from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. It is larger–much larger. The knowledge and purpose of Pluto as taught by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is very different then the knowledge and the purpose of the scientists of this world.

But how many Black people really knew and believed his wisdom before he “left” in 1975?

What are we to learn about the woman, especially now?

If you read the Problem Book carefully, we can read about the planets and the words “she” and “her” and “it.” Why?

Mother Tynnetta Muhammad wrote in The Final Call these words:

“And certainly We gave Moses nine clear signs; so ask the Children of Israel. When he came to them, Pharaoh said to him: Surely I deem thee, O Moses, to be one bewitched. He said: Truly thou knowest that none but the Lord of the heavens and the earth has sent these as clear proofs; and surely I believe thee, O Pharaoh, to be lost.” Holy Qur’an, Surah 17, verses 101-102

“Upon more than one occasion prior to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s departure in 1975, we who were among his family members and Laborers, who sat with him at his dining room table at the Palace, were asked to begin asking him questions that only pertained to our Lessons. Upon one such occasion, he asked us about the meaning of 13 Ducks identified in Problem Number 33.

“From time to time, he would lightly chuckle at our attempt to come up with the answer. It was so important to him that we concentrate on our Lesson Assignment that he would interrupt our discussions by stating that he would not answer any of our questions unless they were pertaining to our Lessons. He further stated that we would be examined on this Assignment before our Saviour, Master Fard Muhammad.

“In that same year, 1974, he announced to his circle of Laborers that he and his wife were preparing to leave the country to take care of very important business, and that he had others to teach who were not of our fold, who would join us and partake of this Great World Mission. When we arrived in Mexico, he asked me to help him in several important areas in preparation for a future time. It has taken me a little more than 30 years to understand more fully the significance of his strategic Divine Plan, of which I only know a little of what he shared with me.

“The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad was an extraordinary man. He was and is in league with the Scientists and the Angelic Hosts who get their Orders from the Most High God, Almighty Allah! He told us that three-quarters of His Teachings from the Master was on the Hereafter, or the New World to come. We were only being given a wake-up call that would bring us to the threshold of this New World Kingdom. It is not wise to make mockery of His Teachings or to take lightly His Divine Words, which are so full of Wisdom that one would have to live into Eternity to master less than one percent of its Magnitude.

“When I asked him what he would teach the others, he answered, ‘The same that you are being taught.’ To further questioning of what that would be specifically, he answered, ‘The Lessons.’

“Combining what he had stated to his family members and Laborers in Chicago, added to his words about the significance of the Lessons as applied to those outside of our fold, I truly recognized that the Lessons were much more than the mere recital of questions and answers and their memorization, which is a requirement for every new convert in the Nation of Islam. This Assignment of our Lessons has become the basis of my study and research throughout the many years of his absence, both at home and abroad.

“In last week’s article, we spoke about the recent launching of NASA’s Space Shuttle to the far away Planet Pluto, or Platoon as it is so named in our Lessons beginning in Problem Number 24. It is the ninth planet in our solar system and is located 4,600,000,000 miles away from the Sun. The space shuttle was launched on January 19 of this year.

“I would like to pose the following question: If Master Fard Muhammad’s Announced Visit to America corresponded with the discovery of Planet Pluto in 1930, named after the Greek god of the underworld, might this final exploratory mission of the United States Government’s space program correspond to the Saviour’s Return and the Birth of a New Nation from among the spiritual dead who are stylized as the blind, deaf and dumb?

“So he desired to scare them from the land, but We drowned him and those with him, all together; And We said to the Children after him: Abide in the land. But when the latter promise came, We brought you all rolled up. And with truth have We revealed it, and with truth did it come. And We have not sent thee but as a giver of good news and as a warner.” Holy Qur’an, Surah 17, verses 103-105′ ”

I gave the context to the above. Context means: “The words, phrases, or passages that come before and after a particular word or passage in a speech or piece of writing and help to explain its full meaning. The circumstances or events that form the environment within which something exists or takes place.”

We are about at the end of this series of articles.

More next issue, Allah willing.
