What lies at the root of this number 114 and any other number of the Holy Qur’an’s verses and chapters is the study of Astronomy which measures the root science of everything in life and lays the base of the Divine Creation of the Heavens and the Earth. From our Nation’s Little Book of Lessons, we read this statement … “the Nation of Islam is all wise and does everything right and exact.” The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has further taught us that the entire scope of Master This period of the greatest magnitude is now unfolding and manifesting itself to our people and to our Nation. A period of 1,000 months is equal to 83 years, leaving 17 more years to complete the century. This is the year 1983 and is also the 8th year of our Messenger’s absence from his Nation and people. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has also written about the Great Significance of the Night of Majesty as referring to this present time coming at the end of 1400 years of the History of Prophet Muhammad and the Revelation of the Holy Qur’an. It is a time in which he has stated that we are preparing to enter into a New World of Islam and to receive a New Book of Scripture coming soon from Almighty God, Allah, that will lead us into the Life of the Hereafter.
Since the Root of this understanding is the Qur’an and the Root Language of the Qur’an is Mathematics which gives us the Root of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and His Divine Teachings, then it is this Scripture, more than any other, that will prepare our entry into that New World through the purification of our hearts guiding us to the acceptance of righteous principles of conduct and of truth that will live forever.
Taking this Surah 97, we can begin to calculate mathematically the root of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in the Holy Qur’an, via the expression of these five verses, giving us an exact reading of the time measured step-by-step by degrees and computed into years as in Astronomy giving us an exact reading of history and the time The Honorable Elijah Muhammad was born in 1897. Our first observation is that the last two numbers 97 is the same as the number of the 97th Surah of the Holy Qur’an. If we compute the 17 remaining years which was measured to the end of this century from this year of 1983, (better than 1,000 months) and add this number 17 to 1897, we get the date 1914, the date which ends 6,000 years of the Devil’s Rule and Dominion. Adding 17 more Surahs to the end of Surah 97, we get exactly 114 Surahs which takes us to the title of this Series of articles of 114 Golden Rules of Conduct For the Righteous.
To be continued.
