“By the star when it sets! 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.”–Holy Qur’an, Surah 53, verses 1-7
In one of my previous articles written in this series on my Testimony of the Living Christ, I referred our readers to the Supreme Wisdom Lessons and to the 13 Paragraphs of instructions given to the early laborers by Master W. Fard Muhammad prior to his departure from the City of Detroit, Michigan, in 1934. I quoted from Paragraph Number 2 which describes the condition and thinking of some of the laborers at that time which ultimately led to a dispute that broke out among the Hypocrites over the use of the money.
The Hypocrites charged that the Apostle misused the funds by delegating it to himself and not to help the poor Muslims. “And soon an argument arose among the Hypocrites about the use of the money because they thought that they should share equally with the Apostle.
Then ALLAH cast these Hypocrites out and punished them for the false accusations that they had spread against the Prophet that he was seeking to enrich himself and acting unjustly to the poor and needy.
And then, ALLAH told the other Laborers that he would soon enrich all of them but, at present, every effort should be to maintain the Prophet and his household.
The enemy, then, tried to stop every Muslim from helping the Apostle and said he should be killed. Then ALLAH Challenged the enemy to do so–to leave not a stone unturned in trying. This is in the 34 Problems that you have if you understand.”
We counted these 34 Problems as representing 34 years, a problem for every year, up to the time of the departure of Master W. Fard Muhammad in May 1934. Counting 34 years forward from that date, we come to 1968 during a period of the continuation in the conflagration of these attacks which were aimed at destroying the Messenger and his Community of the Nation of Islam.
This was another period in the Nation’s history of the manifestation of the Hypocrites which began in the early 1960s involving some of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s top laborers together with some of his family members. What is phenomenal about this period were arguments rising out of conflicting views respecting the Prophet’s Domestic Life which is well recorded in the Revelation of the Holy Qur’an and in the life history of Prophet Muhammad, May the Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him.
This period of hostility led to uncalculated harm, slander, intrigue and divisions within the House of Islam, and manifested a dangerous plot masterminded by that kind of corrupt thinking coming from the inside and manipulated by agencies of the Federal Government that fuel the flames of this hypocrisy which led to the fall of the Nation of Islam in 1975 following the departure of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
Reversing this number 34, we have the number 43. Again, when this number is added to 1934, another period in the rise of hypocrisy in the Nation, came in the year 1977. This was the critical year of decision made by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan to make his stand on the side of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and to lift his Name and his Work in the Rebuilding efforts of the Nation of Islam.
This decision came to the chagrin of our open enemy and opponents to the Black Man’s Rise in America and abroad. We come once again to the playing field of these emotions, in the middle of yet another controversy with slack talk and questions arising over the Domestic Life of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and that of his Mighty Servant and Helper, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
This is the final period in which this trash will be thrown up on the Nation’s doorstep. In 1979, during the first laborers meeting held by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in Chicago, Illinois, he pointed out to us two aspects of an examination that the Believers would have to confront in order to get safely over to the other side. The First Test would be based on our belief that the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad lives and escaped a death plot and was delivered safely to Almighty God, Allah.
The Second Test comes in our right understanding and acceptance of the Domestic Life of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. It is in these areas that my current Testimony of the “Living Christ” is written as a bearer of witness of what Allah has shown me. In the early 1980s, I dreamed about the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad in a setting around the dinner table with a few of his Laborers in attendance.
I entered the room unexpectedly; and he asked me to be seated next to him on the left side of the table. He then asked me to pose any question that I wished for him to answer. I asked him to tell me the scientific explanation of how he escaped the death plot. He smiled encouragingly and said that that was easy. He stated that they came and took him away to a particular location, and then to another location in the course of his escape.
In the same dream, he beckoned me to follow him to a quiet area in the house, and then asked me to teach the sisters about the Sun. When I awakened, I was not positively sure if he was speaking about the actual “Sun” or the Son as in the expression, “Son of Man.” I now believe that he was referring to both the Sun and its powerful magnetic attracting power and force to rejuvenate life, as also the “Son of Man,” born of a woman, made of both fire and light, giving birth to male and female, with a particular focus on a male child who is to rule the Nations with a rod of iron. The fire and magnetism of the Sun would be so powerful in this particular Work of the “Son of Man” that he would control the forces of nature on earth and in our Universe bringing to birth a New World Kingdom of the gods.
Finally, quoting from the end of Paragraph Number 2, we read: “So this is what is meant by Allah taking, under Analysis, the Consideration of the Laborers in the near future. The Student could practice his or her Labor while under study if they were Sincere, and Submit themselves to obey and follow the Apostle. And it is written that all who rebelled against the Apostle, Allah, made it impossible for them to live in Peace until they would Submit.”
“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 he saw. Do you then dispute with him as to what he saw? 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.”–Holy Qur’an, Surah 53, verses 8-17
