“Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth.  A likeness of His light is as a  pillar on which is a lamp—the lamp is in a glass, the glass is as it were a brightly shining star—lit from a blessed olive-tree, neither eastern nor western, the oil whereof gives light, though fire touch it not—light upon light. Allah guides to His light whom He pleases. And Allah sets forth parables for men, and Allah is Knower of all things—” Holy Qur’an, Surah 24, verse 35

All the cells of our body resonate with the intelligent communication of sounds and color and overall in perfect harmony and alignment with the forces of nature.  This electrochemistry of the human body is capable of self-healing as a part of the element of our eco-system working within and without.  In understanding this subject we, like the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, have to be exposed to erratic conditions that shape our environment and which oft times rob us of our natural state of being, causing changes in our genetic makeup and DNA.   According to this resonant field of evolution that we have entered, collective consciousness is not easy to attain.  Our bodies and minds are exposed to varying degrees of stressful components in our environment which can shut down our body’s natural defenses against the intrusion of illness and disease.


The original Black man’s history in the Americas for more than 400 years has nearly destroyed 100 percent of our natural genetic material which defends us from this assault, leaving us open to disease and premature death.  How do we reverse this condition and return back to the days of our ancestors who lived for hundreds of years at a time in the past?  First of all, we must ask the question, what is the frequency of our thoughts?  How do we think about ourselves and others?  How can we be separated from the miserable condition that has been produced through ignorance and the lack of knowledge of self and kind now being exposed to a contaminant environment?  The very air we breathe is toxic as well as many of the thoughts that we think.  Our healing and restoration depends greatly upon the quality of our thinking and our determination to overcome the obstacles that lie in our path.

The Seaport of Jeddah on the Red Sea, port of entry into Saudi Arabia was visited by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and his 24-member delegation on World Friendship Tour III, 1997-1998.

One might ask what does thought have to do with our miserable state of condition?  If we can change the way we think about ourselves and others, we are in the process of eliminating the waste material that has accumulated over the years as a result of our disrespect to ourselves and a righteous way of life.  When we, as a people, were found by our Saviour, Fard Muhammad, he described our condition as that of a dead man or a person who has been totally robbed of the knowledge of self and the knowledge of God and were living a savage lifestyle.  Along with our thinking, we must breathe pure and clean oxygen in the air and take in vital foods to fight stress and disease.

Through centuries of exploitation and fear during the period of slavery, we turned into ourselves and are continuing to commit mass murder and suicide as a people doomed to failure.  This struggle and war against ourselves has produced a sick people, nation and society.  We have practiced living the life of our former slave masters which has brought a complete fall to the fulfillment of our divine destiny. 

We must stop attempting to live the lifestyle of our open enemy rather than following the essence of our own natural being and way of life.

According to our sacred writings of lessons (The Supreme Wisdom) given to us to study, the Problem Book teaches in a mathematical way that the Lost-Found Nation of Islam lacks a thorough knowledge of themselves and is living in a miserable state when we were found by our Saviour, W. D. Fard.  Following this opening statement, we are given a series of six problems which describe our mental and physical condition, and we are identified as the uncle and the wife of Mr. W. D. Fard in the wilderness of North America, living a life other than their own and weighing other than themselves.

This miserable condition leads to our poor health condition which includes:  rheumatism, headaches, and pain in all joints, high blood pressure and heart failure.  This miserable condition continues until the second and third Uncle are totally deprived of oxygen to breathe in such a toxic atmosphere.  They must depend upon the doctors with their drugs and pills to keep them alive on life support systems until we are pronounced dead.  Master Fard Muhammad described our condition in this same Problem Book as being the factors of death added to the eating of the wrong food, especially the hog’s diseased carcass and using other meal helpers at least three times a day, until we have created such a toxic environment in our bodies and minds that destroys our beauty appearance nearly 100 percent.

Following the discussion of the sick uncle and his wife who are related to Master Fard Muhammad, a great explosion in the very atom of the atmosphere takes place.  This explosion in the atmosphere may represent an explosion of Divine Knowledge regenerating oxygen into our lifeless bodies, relieving us of the symptoms of death escaping the over 400 years of servitude slavery.  In some of the research of the food and drink that was fed to our fore-parents on the TransAtlantic Slave crossing, sea water was given to our fore-parents to drink along with other undesirable food items.

The present world order of the exploitation of the Black and Indigenous people of the planet is now coming to an end and we are now being taught a higher science of divine that will restore us and lead us into a new world of thought, gradually eliminating the poisons we have carried in our bodies and our minds for over four centuries.  We are now extending the life force to revive the dead and return back to a healthier condition through the Divine Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.

Finally, I remember how the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad upon his move to Mexico stated that he had always been looking for the right atmosphere and believed he had found it.  While he was seeking to extend our life, others were plotting to take his life and to continue to pollute the environment with wicked and negative thoughts against his Divine Moves to bring our nation back to life again. 

As we continue our journey with the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan throughout the world on his World Friendship Tour III, we are seeing and experiencing his efforts to find a way to unite both East and West as one under the call of Divine Unity so that we who sat in darkness now see a Great Light.  We, who are counted as lost, are now found and are beginning to breathe a new life of Freedom, Justice and Equality by changing the very atmosphere of our thoughts.

“(It is) in houses which Allah has permitted to be exalted and His name to be remembered therein.  Therein do glorify Him, in the mornings and the evenings,  Men whom neither merchandise nor selling diverts from the remembrance of Allah and the keeping up of prayer and the paying of the poor-rate—they fear a day in which the hearts and the eyes will turn about.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 24, verses 36-37
