Today is August 13, 2008. By the help of Allah, I’m trying to arrive in these series of articles, to a very important point in the experience or the history of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. It is critical for us to really understand it.

In the course we will respond to the question about what makes the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s answer so magnificent that was raised in the last article.


What comes below is from “Closing The Gap.”

“Ninety-six months after he determined that he would, by Allah’s help, lift the name and rebuild the work of his teacher, and fifty-five months after he announced that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was physically alive, Minister Farrakhan had a very unusual experience. In a little mountain village, in the country of Mexico, during the night of September 17, 1985, he had a vision-like experience, that was far more than a vision. He didn’t realize that he had this experience until two days later when an earthquake took place.

“Then, on the 19th he told his experience to his wife, Mother Khadijah, and to Mother Tynnetta Muhammad.


“In the interview that you may have just read, Minister Farrakhan mentions that ‘I was taken up on the wheel.’ I want the reader, who may not be acquainted with the more than extraordinary experience that Minister Farrakhan had on September 17, 1985, while in Mexico, to become acquainted, or at least introduced to it.

“Especially, for this part of this book, I asked Mother Tynnetta Muhammad, wife of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, to give me a statement responding to a question I asked for this book. Of course she had given this to us often, over the last twenty-one years.

“I asked her: ‘Please tell me when and where Minister Farrakhan first spoke to you of his more than a vision, which he experienced back on September 17, 1985.’ ”

“On the morning of September 19, 1985, immediately within hours of Mexico City’s worst earthquake, which occurred at 7:19 A.M. in the morning, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and his wife Mother Khadijah, left the hotel where they were staying in Tepoztlan and traveled to Cuernavaza to the home of Mother Tynnetta Muhammad. As they came up the steps into the kitchen area, Minister Farrakhan reached the top step and when turning into the kitchen, he suddenly recalled that he was taken up into the Mother Plane. As he entered the door, he began to share the experience that he had two days earlier on September the 17th.

“He appeared a little dazed as he sat down at the kitchen table. He spoke about climbing the sacred mountain called Tepozteco Mountain at the top of which is a small pyramid dedicated to the former king of Tepozteco. These histories of the Indigenous People of Mexico all ultimately lead to unveiling parts of the history of the great folk hero of all of Meso America known as Quetzalcoatle. The Minister began to describe that he was climbing the mountain, with a few companions, when suddenly an unidentified flying object (UFO) appeared upward at the side of the mountain where the pyramid is located. He then described that three metal legs appeared from the bottom of the wheel like plane. He said he heard a voice telling him “not them; just you.” And that he was told to relax. He said a light came from the ship and he was carried up on a beam of light into it.

Closing The Gap

“He said that when inside this spacecraft that he never saw the face of the pilot or heard words from him. It moved away fromthe side of the mountain at a terrific speed. He said that he knew he was being transported to the Mother Wheel and that the pilot knew he was frightened of seeing such a great ship (the Mother Wheel). The pilot maneuvered his craft in a way that he did not see the Mother Wheel and back into it in a tunnel.

“Minister Farrakhan went on to say that the pilot escorted him to a room. In the ceiling was a speaker. Then he said he heard the voice of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad clearly speaking to him.

“He said that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad began speaking to him and as he did a scroll rolled down in front of him.

“He said the Honorable Elijah Muhammad began to reveal to him information about a war being planned by the president and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He said the Honorable Elijah Muhammad wanted him to deliver this message at a press conference in Washington, D.C., and to reveal their plans and to tell them that he got this information from Elijah Muhammad on the Wheel. He told him that he had one more thing to do and that when he did that one more thing he would be permitted to come to the Wheel and see him face to face.

“I remember that I experienced great excitement, enthusiasm and palpitation of my heart and I said to him, Brother Minister, do you realize what you’re saying? And he responded by asking me what did I see in this experience. I was so overwhelmed in my response that I could only think, my God, he literally had met with my husband. He has begun to communicate with him in his journey much like Ezekiel being taken up on a Wheel within a Wheel.

“As I began to piece this experience together, in later days, I recalled the scriptures from both Bible and Holy Qur’an that mentioned Moses’ mystical experience in the mountain, where he left the children of Israel below and at that particular time, there were only a few elders or companions who were able to be present at the foot of the mountain. In the experience, the tablets were revealed and Moses was not able to see the face of his Lord, but was only able to see, according to the Bible, his hinder parts, his back parts, as he went by him. And again, in each instance of his highly mystical contact with God, there was a great earthquake.”

“Thank you Mother Tynnetta Muhammad.’”
