The phases of Venus

“By the heaven full of stars! And the Promised day! And the bearer of witness and that to which witness is borne! Destruction overtake the companions of the trench!—The fire fed with fuel—When they sit by it, And they are witnesses of what they do with the believers. And they punished them for naught but that they believed in Allah, the Mighty, the Praised, Whose is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. And Allah is Witness of all things.”Holy Qur’an, Surah 85, verses 1-9

The Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is rooted in Mathematics and is characterized by Wisdom. Nothing that is revealed from the heavens above or in the earth below comes without a Divine Plan that is consistent with the Divine Creator, Himself, Almighty God, Allah. The Beauty of the Revelation of the Holy Qur’an is that its verses bear witness to this Divine Truth.

What Message is contained in the stars about the “Promised Day” and who are the witnesses and to what is the witness borne? In the last days, according to both Bible and Holy Qur’an, there would be signs in the sun and the moon, in the stars and the planets that would be bearers of witness of God’s Presence at the end of the world.


Again, repeating the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad who stated that our histories are written in the stars and that the whole scope of Master W. Fard Muhammad’s Teachings is Astronomy, we might better appreciate why I have gone to considerable lengths to cite the new discoveries being made in our universe and the astronomical cycles of the Planets in our solar system and their application to the fulfillment of prophecy through the course of time.

Everything in the last days is bearing witness to the Truth of God that He is not a Spook, but is Real with tangible proofs of His Existence being revealed in the heavens above and in the earth below, as the All-Seeing Eye, the Witness of all things.

A recent discovery was made in March of this year of a large planetoid object located beyond the far away Planet Pluto by astronomers of Caltech working at California’s Palomar Observatory. What is fascinating about this discovery is that 74 years earlier, in March of 1930, Pluto was discovered in the exact year that Master Fard Muhammad made His first public appearance in America with the announcement of His discovery of His lost-found people, members of the Nation of Islam.

Might this new discovery represent a Sign of His Return, being in concert with the fulfillment of the Mayan and Indian prophecy of the Return of Quetzalcoatl under the sign of Venus, “The Morning Star?” Its first transit will be on June 8 and will reappear approximately eight years from now in the year 2012, fulfilling the Mayan prophetic date of the transition into a New World Order.

The role of the Woman, as the Feminine Divine and the Mother of Civilization, operates here as a double sign of her connection to God as the second self and co-producer of the heavens and the earth. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has further stated that she is the twin of God. Venus is named by most early indigenous cultures as the Sacred Female. Most recently, she is identified with the Roman Goddess of Beauty and Love. This new planetoid discovery has been named “Sedna,” after the Inuit Goddess who created the animals of the sea. It is by far the most distant known object in our solar system.

“Surely He it is Who creates first and reproduces; And He is the Forgiving, the Loving, Lord of the Throne of Power, the Glorious, Doer of what He intends.”

Holy Qur’an, Surah 85, verses 13-16
