“And certainly We gave Moses nine clear signs; so ask the Children of Israel. When he came to them, Pharaoh said to him: Surely I deem thee, O Moses, to be one bewitched. He said: Truly thou knowest that none but the Lord of the heavens and the earth has sent these as clear proofs; and surely I believe thee, O Pharaoh, to be lost. So he desired to scare them from the land, but We drowned him and those with him, all together;” -Holy Qur’an, Surah 17, verses 101-103
Having returned once again to Los Angeles, Calif. to prepare for the next edition of the Cultural Links magazine, I shared with the Believers and visitors at Muhammad’s Mosque No. 27, under the tutelage of Minister Tony Muhammad, some of my spiritual experiences traveling to some of the cities in which the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan addressed several thousands of people in separate venues.
He spoke on the relevant issues that are occupying many of our people’s minds today concerning the subject of reparations, our youth and family relations, the political condition and climate of our country and the world, and our duties to self and nation in being self-sufficient and striving towards morality in the midst of a decaying world order and government.
He spoke in Baltimore, Md. on reparations and the unification of family. Two weeks later, he addressed an all-men’s meeting in Detroit, Mich., and one day later he spoke to public leaders, educators, politicians, Christians and Muslims alike, and to the youth and the elderly. He was invited by the African American Men’s Organization supported by members of the city council, religious leaders and the mayor in a city that boasts 85 percent Black.
It was a celebration of family on the subject “Black Men Taking Responsibility: A Plan of Action.” All the while, my mind was fastened to the historical overtones and memories on the subject that I had been sharing with our readers in these last several articles regarding the escape of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad from a death plot and the evidence that he lives. I wondered what association or link this has with the history of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, walking in the footsteps of the history of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
In recalling the circumstances of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s departure, I wished to return to the discussion of my witnessing certain events that took place at that time and the series of dreams I have had thereafter concerning the scientific explanation of his escape. I am reminded of a particular letter written by the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad to Brother Jabril Muhammad, who was known then as Brother Bernard Cushmeer, in Phoenix, Ariz. in 1966, concerning this same subject of his escape from a death plot. I will quote a portion of this letter, with all due respect for the subject matter at hand, in as much as it connects to the exact words that the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad shared with me in my dreams.
In the letter, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad mentions Daniel’s prophecy of 70 weeks that was determined upon his people: “The 69th week is something similar to the attack on the woman in Revelations; and it is hinted in the Qur’an, in symbolic language; and again in Daniel it says in the night they came and they took the prey away; and, in Isaiah he makes mention not of death, but of a taking away and escape of the Messenger from a death plot against him, by the angels (smile). …
“Again, it says he was taken away from the overspreading of wickedness and that which makes desolate… In the Psalms prophecy, he was taken under a cover of darkness. While the enemies were after him, God made the heavens a dark thickness of clouds, and under cover of this darkness, God came down and picked him up. The Holy Qur’an refers to a time of Daniel’s prophecy. Read Holy Qur’an, Chapter 81, verses 15 to 25.”
In my dream that occurred in the early 1980s, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad spoke to me in almost the same words on this subject of his escape. He told me that they came and took him to a particular place, and from there he was taken to another place. The next evening, I was shown what I believed to be the place where he was taken.
In the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s vision-like experience in 1985, it was confirmed for me the place where he was ultimately taken, which was aboard the Great Ship which is called the Mother’s Wheel. We will note that the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s testimony on this subject of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s escape from a death plot was delivered at our first Saviours’ Day celebration in 1981 in Chicago. This came approximately three-and-a-half years from the time that he took his stand to rebuild the Nation of Islam circa 1977-1978.
In this connection to the 1981 Saviours’ Day, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s letter to Brother Jabril Muhammad refers to the 81st Surah of the Holy Qur’an, entitled “The Folding Up,” verses 15-25. In Daniel’s prophecy of the 70 weeks (years), as the term determined upon God’s people, covers in our historical context of time, the extended period of 70 years of grace indicated by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as the fullness of the time since the departure of Master W. Fard Muhammad in 1934.
The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad escapes from a death plot in 1935, which would bring us to another timeline of 70 years to 2005. Daniel’s prophecy is revealed in Chapter 9 beginning with verses 24-27. Daniel is a book of the Apocalypse, which means “unveiling.” And so it is in our search for truth, may this testimony add to our storehouse of knowledge, wisdom and understanding.
“And We said to the Children of Israel after him: Abide in the land. But when the latter promise came, We brought you all rolled up. And with truth have We revealed it, and with truth did it come. And We have not sent thee but as a giver of good news and as a warner.”
-Holy Qur’an, Surah 17, verses 104-105
