“Certainly We sent Noah to his people, so he said: O my people, serve Allah, you have no god other than Him. Indeed I fear for you the chastisement of a grievous day. The chiefs of his people said; Surely we see thee in clear error. He said: O my people, there is no error in me, but I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds. I deliver to you the messages of my Lord, and I offer you good advice, and I know from Allah what you know not.”—Holy Qur’an, Surah 7, verses 59-62
One may ask, why am I sharing so much of my personal experiences growing up in Detroit, Michigan, prior to my coming to the path of Islam? Nothing that ever happens to us in life from the time of our birth onward is ever without meaning and purpose. Every fine detail must be studied seriously in shedding light on our reason for being. We are all born with a Divine Purpose, and the scientists of our nation have studied us from a distance and close-up thousands of years in advance of our coming to birth and have recorded our histories in a book of writings in 25,000-year cycles.
The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad would tell us many times that everything about us is written in a book. And as incredible as this may sound, none of us have been left out of these writings. We have been on an evolutionary journey since time immemorial. Whatever comes in our lives, God already knows it before it comes to pass. Our histories are written in the stars. The Angels assist the Supreme Being, Whose Proper Name is Allah, who is the All Knowing. The Angels are His Helpers throughout the entire Universe. The Angels are informed about our life histories and are going about their work. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that they keep a record of our everyday activities and are assigned to record our actions in a book of deeds that will literally be given to us at a particular moment in time. These angels walk among and watch over every Believer and are centered mentally on the right and left side of our brain keeping an accurate account of our thoughts. In this way, they are as close to us as our jugular vein.
Allah knows what every female brings forth and that which falls short of completion. So in retracing my early childhood onward ‘til today, it may help all Believers to find their ultimate destinies in the Divine Plan of Almighty God, Allah, in His Divine Creation. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad described to some of his secretaries and laborers in the 1960s that scientists would come from the East to gather the records we have made since our acceptance of Islam and would take them to the East. He named the actual country or place which I am not able to state at this time. Therefore, every Saviours’ Letter and Forms that we have written are so critically important that being careless with any of them could cause us to lose our lives.
Imagine that we have all been profiled and card indexed by Divine ever since we made our journey to Islam. When we have this understanding, it will be shown to us in every detail. There is no Mystery God, nor are His Divine Helpers a Mystery; they look like you and I, and some of us may have already been visited. All the experiences that I am now sharing is to awaken us to a higher consciousness of their existence and their work among us.
When I decided to share this experience with the Minister of Detroit, Temple No. 1 as it was called then (not mosque), named Minister Wilford X, following one of the temple meetings, he responded positively and was somewhat amazed and felt that I should share this experience with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He spoke about the work of the angels as taught by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and felt sincerely that I had made a genuine contact.
When I moved to Chicago in 1959 and had the opportunity to share this experience with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, to my surprise he also responded positively and was awaiting a contact message. My last memory of this contact, following his first appearance in my school, was in a dream in which I viewed a large Spacecraft at my window. He had previously told me that he was from another galaxy. I simply can’t remember at this time the name of its location.
In the dream, which occurred in the night, while I was still living in my home in Detroit, there appeared at my window this large Craft. As I peered inside, I saw a large spacious room and a side view of a person in close fitting dark apparel at the control panel. It felt like I was literally inside the ship. Suddenly and swiftly the ship then passed out of my sight. I have often wondered since those days if I would ever see that person again. In one of those last meetings, he stated that he would be seen again as one of those who were assigned to separate the people into groups. As stated in the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, such persons called angels or messengers would be seen in the Final Judgment Hour standing on every other corner telling the people where to go.
He also stated that there are thousands of those individuals (angels or messengers) already in the country but could not be identified lest they be killed. We must have Faith and remember that we are not alone. Many of us may be lucky to be rescued when the time comes and be taken to quiet, peaceful places outside of the area designated for destruction. Remember as it is written in the end of our 13 Paragraphs of Instructions from Master Fard Muhammad: “Big fields are awaiting for the wide awake man to workout. Arise the dead by the thousands. The dead Nation must arise—for the Time is at hand. Look in your Poison Book. Work cheerfully and fear not! You are the Righteous, the Best and the Powerful.”
“Do you wonder that a reminder has come to you from your Lord through a man from among you, that he may warn you and that you may guard against evil, and that mercy may be shown to you? But they called him a liar, so We delivered him and those with him in the ark, and We drowned those who rejected Our messages. Surely they were a blind people.”—Holy Qur’an, Surah 7, verses 63-64
