Words from Mother Tynnetta Muhammad on Saviours’ Day
[Editor’s Note: This article is reprinted from Volume 25, No. 20 and The Final Call is pleased to announce that we will continue to reprint articles written by our late and dear Mother Tynnetta Muhammad.]
In The Most Holy Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful, Who Came in the Person of a well-made man, Master Fard Muhammad, the Great Mahdi that the world has been looking for.
On the other side of this equation, He represents the Messianic Dispensation that the Jewish, Christian and Muslim worlds have been looking for.
I am going to be brief in my words, but I am going to be very direct. This Saviours’ Day is not a normal Saviours’ Day. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has prepared a meal for us. I hope that we take that meal very carefully, digest it, and get the nutrients that are required to take us through a very dark period in our Nation’s history and that of the world.
The words that we speak, as members of the Nation of Islam and followers of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, is not just a short-term message. His message is the fulfillment of all the prophetic writings that you read in both Bible and Holy Qur’an. There is nothing that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad has stated in the past that we are not seeing coming to pass. Would you agree?
This is the time of the harvest. This is the time of the separation of those who are among us–whether Christians, Muslims, Jews or whatever religious persuasion–will be separated. By Whom? By the Angelic Hosts.
There is a power, Brothers and Sisters, and a force that we may not see or recognize in this moment. But we will all soon see the devastation that will come to this land and throughout the world, as we have seen in the examples of the tsunami in Southeast Asia and Indonesia; the flooding and the mudslides that we are witnessing in Central America and that we are witnessing in the Philippine Islands. We are witnessing a global catastrophe. We think, “Oh, this has happened before.” Not really. No, it has not happened before like this.
As we proceed in this dark hour, the Life-Giving Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is our place of refuge. The words that we will hear today may be the last warning that will come to a rebellious people who have been mistreated by every member of the White race. Every colonial power that came to rule over this Western Hemisphere is going to have a rude awakening.
The Spanish conquered Central America, Mexico and South America. They have been deprived, also of freedom, justice and equality. The Native Americans have been robbed of their land and their right to sovereignty. A rude awakening is set for those who conquered and destroyed the population of our member families of the Original Nation.
We have to stop dividing one from another; that’s a Mexican, that’s a Chicano, that’s a Hispanic, that’s a Latino, that’s a Puerto Rican! That’s an Indian. In our blood is the origin of the genealogy of all the races on this planet. Coursing through our blood, in our DNA, we represent all the human family of the planet, Earth.
I am so happy to see you come out in these numbers. I thank the Honorable Louis Farrakhan for inviting us to such a splendid dinner. But it wasn’t just a dinner where we were to eat food; we were to hear instructions coming from Him that will take us into the future; that will take us safely across the river on the other side; so that when we make it, if we make it, that he will not proclaim himself as being the guide, but he will acknowledge the Guide Who Came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad and that of His greatest Disciple Who has now been exalted–listen carefully–on the right hand side of the Master, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the Risen Christ that we have been looking for all of our lives.
This is real that I am talking about today. The signs will increase until everyone–Black, White, Brown, Red, whatever your national origin or ethnicity–will be bowing down and saying, “All praise is due to Allah, Who Came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad.”
I want you to know that in these days, we can no longer talk and applaud, and talk and applaud and walk away, and say that it was just another message, another word. We are going to be forced to do something for ourselves. We are going to be forced to come together and develop an economic program of survival.
There is no division that exists in the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Either you are right or you are wrong. Either you are good or you are bad. We are not going to be the same people as we walk out of this arena today. Believe it!
As I was making my way here, I opened to Chapter 22 in the Holy Qur’an, entitled, “The Pilgrimage,” Section 3 entitled “Believers are Triumphant.” It is in these verses that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad pointed out to us the meaning of the name of the Mahdi Who came to save us all:
“Surely Allah will make those who believe and do good deeds enter gardens wherein flow rivers–they are adorned therein with bracelets of gold and (with) pearls; And their garments therein are of silk. And they are guided to pure words, and they are guided to the path of the Praised One.”
That was identified as Master Fard Muhammad.
The Surah continues: “Those who disbelieve and hinder (men) from Allah’s way and from the Sacred Mosque, which we have made equally for all men, (for) the dweller therein and the visitor. And whoever inclines therein to wrong, unjustly, We shall make him taste of painful chastisement.”
This is the Day of Separation. Make up our minds.
“If Baal be god, then follow him. But if God be God, follow Him.”
Let us be blessed to send this message from today onward into the life, a new life, of the Hereafter, where we will be blessed with everything that we need.
Thank you for listening. Happy, happy Saviours’ Day!
