“Say: I am only a warner; and there is no God but Allah, the One, the Subduer (of all)–The Lord of the heavens and the earth and what is between them, the Mighty, the Forgiving.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 38, verses 65-66
The Divine Mission of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in establishing the Nation of Islam, God’s kingdom on earth, must be studied in two parts or stages of its evolution. The first appearance of the Great Mahdi, Master W. F. Muhammad in 1930, and his appointment of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad as his chosen Apostle represented the first stage in the Spiritual Resurrection of our dead nation and people. This is written in our book of the Supreme Wisdom Lessons and early instruction to the Laborers in Paragraph I–“The past history shows that the Almighty, Allah, sends prophets and apostles for the people’s Guide and Example, and through them His Mystery was Revealed. And those who follow the Apostle would see the Light.”
Thus, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad laid the base of our work today as outlined in Lesson No. 1 with 14 Questions and Answers through the Divine Guidance of our Saviour, Master W. F. Muhammad. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad worked diligently and tirelessly for approximately 44 years until his departure in 1975. He was then taken to his Lord, Almighty God, Allah, to be taught for another protracted period to complete His Divine Mission characterized in scripture as the Exaltation or Ascension of Jesus who becomes the Christ figure and “Messiah” given power over the heavens and the earth with God, Himself.
This is expressed in the 22 point program of the Muslims Wants and Beliefs appearing on the back page of our Final Call newspaper and should be read in conjunction with the 22 chapters of Revelation to be properly understood in its prophetic meaning. This program, according to the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, is to be presented to Congress and the United States Government as our preliminary Declaration of Independence in the pursuit of justice with an appeal for Land or Territory that we can call our own, either on this continent or elsewhere.
In Point Number 12 of What the Muslims Believe: 12. “WE BELIEVE THAT Allah (God) appeared in the Person of Master W. Fard Muhammad, July 1930; the long-awaited “Messiah” of the Christians and the “Mahdi” of the Muslims.
“We believe further and lastly that Allah is God and besides HIM there is no God and He will bring about a universal government of peace wherein we all can live in peace together.”
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us as students during those initial 44 years while he was among us that his real mission had not yet begun, and that he would be taken to the Master for further preparation for this second stage before Almighty God, Allah. He left us on the foundation study of our assignment given to us in a Lesson Plan called “The Supreme Wisdom.” We were instructed upon his departure that we would all have our Final Examination before Almighty God, Allah, Himself. We find this written in paragraph 6 of the early Instructions to the Laborers.
“Everyone’s FINAL EXAMINATION will be before ALLAH (OUR SAVIOUR), which will include all of the forms of Lesson #1’s Answers and all the Problems, and a General Review of the three and one-half years of Labor.” The scriptures confirm in the book of Revelation, Christ’s Testimony of this Divine Work in progress supported by the angels working in the Presence of Almighty God, Allah. We were also taught by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad that we would be taught a new education for 20 more years by our own scientists and teachers of the original nation in advanced mathematics and astronomy leading to a knowledge of the higher mechanics of our universe.”
I believe that these advanced studies are connected to the mechanics of the great man-made Planet called, “The Mother’s Wheel,” and the high civilization that exists there. This is demonstrated in the phenomenal Vision-like experience of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in which he was taken to the Wheel and communicated with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in 1985 from the small Mexican town of Tepoztlan located some 19 miles from the Residence he established prior to his departure. I am one of the witnesses of the preparation he made in Mexico concerning this second phase of his Mission, along with my family and a few others prior to his departure in 1975.
He described his departure as a man going on a lone journey in which he would have no companions in his second meeting with God, Himself. In reading the Holy Qur’an in seven manzils or portions during the last 33 years, much information has been shown to me in a mathematical way that I am able to share, God willing, from time to time. We have now entered into the Final Judgment of this world in which the only Judge is God, Himself. I have been blessed to see the Honorable Elijah Muhammad upon several occasions in different forms of His Divine Light, as have many of the Believers during this period of time of his absence.
His Presence can be defined as “Divine Light.” This is described in the 4th manzil of the Holy Qur’an, which also reveals the history and work of his Greatest Helper, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. These Surahs of the 4th manzil contains nine chapters counting from Surah 17 to 25. These are signs that were shown to Pharaoh in the delivery of Israel held in bondage. We begin in Surah 17 with the Ascension or mirage of Prophet Muhammad, May the Peace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him, who was taken into the seven heavens to the Throne of Almighty God, Allah, that is illumined in pure Light upon Light.
In the study of these nine Surahs, we end with Surah 25 entitled, “Furqan,” which describes The Anointing of Minister Louis Farrakhan appointed to work with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad leading to his Universal and Global Mission in this second stage of the Resurrection of our dead people, which includes the whole of humanity.
“Say: It is a message of importance, From which you turn away. I have no knowledge of the exalted chiefs when they contend. Only this is revealed to me that I am a plain warner.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 38, verses 67-70
