“And when it is said to them, Come to that which Allah has revealed and to the Messenger, they say: Sufficient for us is that wherein we found our fathers. What! even though their fathers knew nothing and had no guidance.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 5, verse 104
“If one wishes to comprehend any nation, it is crucial to have knowledge of that nation’s history and culture.”
This excerpt comes from the foreword of the book entitled, “Reclaiming Genghis Khan.” As I begin this article, I wish to thank the many Believers and officials who I met with in the cities of Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Detroit and Philadelphia, who assisted me in the ongoing research and the gathering of information on the early history of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam since its founding in 1930 by Master Fard Muhammad. This gathering of information will be archived as the Nation’s national treasures. These individuals will always remain in my memory for the rest of my life, for their rendering of such respect and honor to their Sister is a sign of Allah’s Love in our hearts to express Divine Unity of Purpose, as we are being guided through this most critical period of the spiritual mission of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his greatest helper, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
I recall the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad when he came to me and spoke to me about one of his wives who was ofttimes approached by the faithful in later years following his departure, who wanted to learn more about Muhammad’s history. I did not realize at that time that he was addressing me as part of that inner circle of companions who would be placed in that role to serve the Nation and the Believers. They were to be a reliable source of information for the succeeding generation of Muslims to come.
In the movie “National Treasure,” we viewed a profound reminder of the body of knowledge that we have inherited from the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. This body of knowledge has proven to be a National Treasure for the Nation of Islam and all of our people around the globe. It is truly our inheritance which is opening up a new world of peace and happiness in the midst of a nation that has robbed us of our birthright, names, culture and national history. We are evolving as a baby Nation in the midst of the most powerful nation on earth. We are now on the threshold of a universal change. As I reported in the last article, this universal change is corresponding to the measurement of 50,000 years in which our nation has a complete fall.
When Master Fard Muhammad revealed Himself in the public for the first time in 1930, He met with President Herbert Hoover who was a member of the Masonic Order. We have also been taught that there are approximately three million Moslem Sons who recognized the Great Architect of the universe. When they have reached the highest degree of their training, at the 33rd degree, they learn the name of God, Allah, and begin their reading of the Holy Qur’an revealed to Prophet Muhammad, may the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him.
So under the sign of Solomon, Master Fard Muhammad appeared as the Great Architect of the temple to be built to the Glory of God, (which represents the rebuilding of our people). In the movie “National Treasure,” we note that the secret of the freemasons was tied up in deciphering an exact code of letters, numbers and words that unveils the Secret Knowledge now being revealed through the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. So in secret, the rulers of this world ultimately come to see that the Great Architect of the universe is Almighty God Allah.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that these millions of Moslem Sons would come to our aid at a certain time. In 1974, he taught us in his Saviours’ Day speech that there are millions and millions of White people who honor and respect this truth and would come to our aid at a particular time in our history. He also stated that they know us. We don’t know them, but one day we would become acquainted with them.
It is my belief that speaking the language properly and using that language in the proper term will release to us everything that has been promised from Master Fard Muhammad, which is luxury, money, good homes and friendship in all walks of life. To inherit the Kingdom means to purify self and align our minds and thinking with the Great Architect of the universe, whose proper name is Allah. He, Allah, is Guardian over all the treasures of the earth and the universe.
“O you who believe, take care of your souls–he who errs cannot harm you when you are on the right way. To Allah you will all return, so He will inform you of what you did.” –
Holy Qur’an, Surah 5, verse 105
