“Allah originates the creation, then reproduces it, then to Him you will be returned. And the day when the Hour comes, the guilty will despair. And they will have no intercessors from among their associate-gods, and they will deny their associate-gods. And the day when the Hour comes, that day they will be separated one from the other.”—Holy Qur’an, Surah 30, verses 11-14
Recently, some very interesting information has surfaced on the Internet concerning Einstein and his visit to Detroit, Michigan during the period of Master W. Fard Muhammad’s presence in that city in the early 30’s. It has also been speculated in a publication that Master W. Fard Muhammad may have met and conversed with Einstein during that same period of time. Truth is something that never remains at a distance where falsehood is concerned but is always present and manifests at the proper time. During the Theology of Time lecture series delivered by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad at Mosque Maryam in 1972, he warned his followers against the inventing of imaginary stories on the life of Master W. Fard Muhammad from the time of his birth to the present hour of this world’s judgment.
Paul, in his writings, states that we must prove all things and hold fast to that which is good. It is best not to draw conclusions about any matter without full investigation and research to confirm Truth against falsehood. In the study and science of our Lessons we are given the same advice. Our Lessons are given to all students and new converts to study in a mathematical way which leads us step by step to access the spiritual answers. This process leads to greater Knowledge of God and self to unveil the deeper mysteries of God and unlimited worlds of the highest civilization.
On Sunday, October 7, 2007, we commemorated the 110th Birthdate of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, born, Elijah Poole in Sandersville, Georgia, in 1897. This Commemoration will also mark the 32nd year since his departure from among us in 1975. The question we may ask is: Was his departure secretly arranged, as in the Biblical Rapture, or as Elijah was taken up in a whirlwind and fiery chariot into the heavens? Or rather, did he die an ordinary death to be buried in a cemetery as all ordinary people are buried at the time of their death? Were there signs reported of extraordinary circumstances surrounding the life of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad that indicated his escape from a death plot? We will leave this subject and provocative questions to be answered, Allah willing, at another time in the very near future.
Returning to the recent Internet story about Einstein published in a recent National Geographic magazine, that he owned an old touring car during the ’30s and early ’40s, how might this connect to an old touring car that is mentioned in one of our Lessons, or is it relative? When reading the story, it brought to my mind the automobile industry, which began in the Motor City of Detroit and the use of an old Model T Ford, which Master Fard Muhammad drove in the city to meet with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, his Chosen Servant and Student. This story was related to me by his late daughter, Sister Ethel Sharrieff, who described how she was instructed by him to watch his car while he was teaching her father. Upon his departure, he had to crank the automobile from the front to get it started.
In the October edition of National Geographic magazine titled: “Growing Fuel,” a brief reference is made in the article to Henry Ford’s first car being run on alcohol as a plant derivative fuel until the discovery of rock oil refinery, which soon took over the fuel industry operating all modern transportation today. The problem under discussion, which refers to an Old Touring Car is numbered Problem Number 32, in the second part identified as B. No. 1. The term theoretical physicist or mathematician is applied to Einstein who put questions to his students in a mathematical way, combined with the use of words and sentences to discover the answers or solutions to the physics of life and their application to everyday living.
The entire Problem Book of our “Supreme Wisdom,” numbering 34, are also given to us in a mathematical way to tell the history of our Lost and Found people and nation in America, having been cut off from our own until Our Redeemer and Saviour came to revive us. It has been attested in the early biographical material written about Einstein that he was deeply concerned and even tormented by the mistreatment of Blacks in America and befriended Paul Robeson and others and stayed in the home of Miriam Anderson. Just as he bemoaned the condition of Blacks in America without a solution, he regretted the fact that in his discovery of the atomic particles that went into the making of the A-Bomb, this haunted him to his death.
With this aforementioned information, while reflecting on Problem No. 32 and B. No. 1, I noted that the downhill rate of speed of this old touring car that was sold to the Uncle by a certain cavy is given as 48 miles per hour. If we multiply 48 by 60 minutes in an hour, the result is 2,880. The figure 288 is twice 144, the root number of 144,000 referred to in the first part of Problem No. 32. If we reverse the number 48, we get 84. By adding two zeros to 84, we get the date 8,400 which gives us the birth of Yacob and the beginning of his civilization coming in the 9,000th year of our present Calendar History in the Making of the White Race. The downhill speed may represent the downhill fall of Yacob’s Present Civilization which Master W. Fard Muhammad was born to master in order to bring in a New World Order of Peace and Justice!
“Then as to those who believed and did good, they will be made happy in a garden. And as for those who disbelieved and rejected Our messages and the meeting of the Hereafter, they will be brought to chastisement. So glory be to Allah when you enter the evening and when you enter the morning. And to Him be praise in the heavens and the earth, and in the afternoon, and when the sun declines. He brings forth the living from the dead and brings forth the dead from the living, and gives life to the earth after its death. And thus will you be brought forth.”—Holy Qur’an, Surah 30, verses 15-19
