Working on the theme of revival, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has to perform, by God’s permission, and in his own words, an exorcism to draw the devil’s head out of us in order to cure and to heal the patient. Revival can also mean a resurgence and a resurrection which quickens our perception of the knowledge of self and of others with renewed attention or interest.
Indeed Saviours’ Day this year was all of this and much more. According to our continued study of Surah 97 of the Holy Qur’an and the unveiling of the deeper meanings inherent in the Number 19, mathematical code of the Holy Qur’an, we are set on a course to witness extraordinary changes among individuals and Nations which will reach a peak of manifestation by the year 2000.
The word had already gone forth from Min. Farrakhan and from the offices of Mosque Maryam that preparation was in the making to herald the greatest Saviours’ Day celebration ever in our 67-year history.
What made Saviours’ Day this year so special and dynamic?
In studying over the footnotes 2778 and 2779 of Surah 97, as translated by Maulana Muhammad Ali, we are told that a period of 23 years is given as a time of great spiritual blessings which corresponds to the life work of the Prophet Muhammad in receiving and arranging the whole of the Holy Qur’an as we have it today. This period of 23 years may also refer to the time during which a Mujaddid or a reformer would appear among the Muslims at the commencement of every century.
Surah 97, verse 3 states that “the Night of Majesty is better than a thousand months,” which period is equivalent to about 83 years leaving 17 years to complete the century. What does this mean for us today? What events have taken place in the century which has given rise to the further spread of Islam in the world and particularly in the Western Hemisphere? Why is our Brother from the East making contact with the lost and found brother in the West who is being awakened to the call of Islam?
Almost without exception the Muslim scholars must now admit that regardless to how so-called unorthodox we may appear, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad laid the foundation and nurtured the seed of Islam’s spread in America beginning with the blind, deaf and dumb, rejected and despised so-called American Negroes, ex-slaves of White America.
Upon the Coming of Master Wallace Fard Muhammad, the Great Mahdi, who was born in the Holy City of Mecca, Arabia, journeyed from a far country and reclaimed us as his own.
This is why we call him our Saviour, besides whom we have no Saviour. He, who came to our help and aid. Thus, it is written by him and left as a reminder in lessons and instructions given to us to study by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad the following words:
“Why should the lost-found disbelieve and dispute with one another about our Saviour, Allah, and his work of delivering? Cannot a fool see that a Mighty change is in progress in every living creature?”
The divine work and mission of Min. Farrakhan is the continuation and completion of a cycle in the fulfillment of prophecy of both, Holy Qur’an and Bible, that prophecies our revival and return to our God and people.
The Minister’s work of “Revival” coincides with the beginning of the 15th century of the Hijrah, Arab lunar calendar time, and his fame and reputation is now being proclaimed throughout the world as a Great Reformer of Islam. President Muammar Ghadafi stated, perfectly in his live video address via satellite on Saviours’ Day, the work of our Brother, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, calling him the Mijaddid, and Great Reformer of our time and Reviver of the true spirit of Islam and universal brotherhood.
Surah 5, verse 3 states, “This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed my favor to you and chosen for you Islam as a religion.” This last revealed verse of the Holy Qur’an to the Prophet Muhammad at the time of his farewell pilgrimage is most certainly true for all times and for all places and for all people and nations of our planet.
