“Corruption has appeared in the land and the sea on account of that which men’s hands have wrought, that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done, so that they may return.” Holy Qur’an, Surah 30:41

LOS ANGELES–Parts of Southern California are under a state of emergency after two earthquakes struck during America’s Independence Day celebration.

The first, a magnitude 6.4, struck the city of Ridgecrest, population 28,000, in the Northern Mojave Desert at 10:33 a.m. PST on July 4.


There were a series of aftershocks, including almost 250 magnitude 2.5 and over tremors. Thirty-four hours later, a magnitude 7.1 earthquake hit the same area at 8:19 p.m. on July 5.

“We are now in the fullness of time. We are actually in judgment, and we were taught for a long time that ultimately California would suffer what she is suffering now,” said Student Minister Dr. Ava Muhammad, national spokesperson for The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, also an attorney, author, and radio talk show host.

“Each earthquake triggers aftershocks, but larger earthquakes trigger more aftershocks. So the M7.1 earthquake will trigger about five times as many aftershocks as the 6.4. On average about one time in 20, an earthquake will trigger an earthquake larger than itself. The M6.4 earthquake did just that (triggered the M7.1) so it was one of those one in 20 times,” said Morgan Page, a spokesperson for the U.S. Geological Survey in Pasadena, Calif.

Shaking was felt by millions of people across the region, including the greater Los Angeles and Las Vegas areas, San Francisco, Sacramento, Phoenix, and Mexico.

The epicenters were the Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, which provides and maintains land, facilities and other assets that support the Navy’s research, development, acquisition, testing and evaluation of cutting-edge weapons systems.

The installation represents 85 percent of the Navy’s land for such use and 38 percent of the Navy’s land holdings worldwide. In total, its two ranges and main site cover more than 1.1 million acres, an area larger than the state of Rhode Island, according to the U.S. Navy.

Since July 4, the installation was still “not mission capable until further notice.” All non-mission essential personnel were evacuated to the Naval Base in Port Hueneme Ventura County, Calif.

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam have consistently warned of these events.

“These are not the days of Noah, Lot and Abraham, nor are these the days of Moses. These are new times, the enemy does not get away in punishing the righteous just because he hates them,” stated the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in his prophetic text  Fall of America, published in 1973.

“Allah, the God of Righteousness, is with us and He just Laughs at those who try to fight against Him. He has destroyed whole nations with less than the power of rain, hail, snow and earthquakes. The Holy Qur’an has the record of people even being destroyed by gnats. Allah (God) does not have to have something great. He does not have to go to work and get a block of iron or a mountain and throw it on them. He uses that which is with you, against you,” said the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.

In Part 53 of his 2013 unprecedented lecture series, “The Time and What Must Be Done,” Minister Farrakhan urged America to submit and be wiser than the Pharaoh and wicked of the Qur’an and Bible that were destroyed when Allah (God) punished them.

“God is at work: You can call it ‘global warming’– God is able to warm it; He is able to cool it, for He is The Master over all that makes the ‘heat’ or ‘cooling!’ He is able to freeze it; He is able to make it liquid. He is in power today; as the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said earlier, “[As] one of our scientists [on The Wheel] said, ‘America … was not worth using no such high explosion on.’ [Just] wasn’t worth it.” But, if America is not worthy to use that power on, yet the power to use it is with us, then juxtapose that with this: He’s got the power to destroy all life!”

The two divine men’s predictive power has been 100 percent, said Dr. Muhammad.

On July 4 and July 5, Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency in Kern and San Bernardino counties, and activated California’s State Emergency Plan. He also deployed more than 200 members of the California National Guard to assist impacted communities and requested a Presidential Emergency Declaration for Direct Federal Assistance.

The U.S. Geological Survey has issued a red alert for economic losses, meaning that extensive damage is probable, and the Ridgecrest disaster is likely widespread. The agency estimated economic losses are at least $1 billion.

Both directions of the region’s main transportation corridor Highway 178 were closed due to a rockslide. In San Bernardino County’s Trona community, the main route suffered cracks, and other roadways were impacted by rockslides, according to Gov. Newsom.

The 6.4 earthquake struck four hours after President Donald Trump announced a celebration of America’s military might and independence with “flyovers of the most modern and advanced aircraft anywhere in the world.”

“The actions of our current president, rolling tanks down the streets in the capital, threatening the Islamic Republic of Iran, and imposing sanctions, characterizing the caging of children and the separation of children from their parents as better than where they came from, treating families, refugees who are coming seeking asylum in the United States the way they treated us during the institution of chattel slavery, all of these things are culminating in Allah (God) moving forward on his promise to execute judgment,” Dr. Muhammad stated.

The 7.1 quake marks the largest on U.S. record in the last 20 years.

A magnitude 7.1 Hector Mine earthquake occurred on October 16, 1999 in San Bernardino County. The California Institute of Technology indicates its location was so remote that it caused relatively negligible damage for a magnitude 7.1. Surface rupture was located entirely within the boundaries of the Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Air Ground Command Center, the largest U.S. Marine Corps base, the institute reported.

“He is targeting their military installations …. We’re talking about the land and the sea, and many years ago the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said to the United States, You have powerful navies, but my God controls the ocean that your navies sail on and it’s the same with their military installations,” she said.

“If we see God targeting the weaponry and strength of his enemy, then this should result in us increasing our level of commitment and our sense of urgency in the need to separate ourselves from the enemy of God.”

“I don’t think we’ll see a return to so-called normalcy. I believe, because I am a student of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, that the earthquakes will continue and they will increase, leading ultimately to the disappearance of the state of California, and that’s not something to celebrate for anyone.”

When Allah is executing judgement, be found in prayer, seeking to submit one’s individual will to do His will, because these times are very terrifying, she advised. Allah (God) is Master of the Day of Requital and that is being experienced now, said Dr. Muhammad.
