“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—Quran, Surah 30, verses 11-14
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan pointed out in his extraordinarily powerful Saviours’ Day address on Reparations “What Does America and Europe Owe? What Does Allah (God) Promise?” that the premiere of Mel Gibson’s controversial film “The Passion of the Christ” on Ash Wednesday, February 25th was not a coincidence. This premiere led up to our own Saviours’ Day events on the ending day of February 29th. This event also closed what has been celebrated for several decades as Black History Month.
The depth and contents of his message was so overwhelming and impacting that it left very little room for doubt as to the identity of the true Christ, the Jesus figure, and the meaning of the resurrection of the dead coming at the end of the world that we have known.
In reviewing our recent history in the life of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, we will note that the date February 29 when added together, letters and numbers, comes to 19. Going back from this date 29 years ago we come to 1975 when the Honorable Elijah Muhammad departed. It is also interesting to note that the premiering of the film, “The Passion of the Christ,” took place on February 25. The exact date 29 years ago when it was announced to the public that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad had expired in the Mercy hospital in Chicago, just one day before the February 26 Saviours’ Day event.
The controversy over whether or not the Honorable Elijah Muhammad escaped the death plot of his enemies and lives on, continues to this hour. Was Elijah taken up on a fiery chariot by the horsemen of Israel into heaven awaiting his second appearance in another time? Why were Jesus’ words on the cross of affliction interpreted by the Romans to be his calling upon Elijah? Why did the Transfiguration on the Mount also manifest the persons of Elijah and Moses together with Jesus? Why do the Orthodox Jews have a table setting for Elijah at their special ceremonial Seder feast during Passover? Why is the Wise Man, AL KHADIR, or “the green one” who appears in the 18th chapter of Holy Qur’an’s narrative on Moses’ journey in search of knowledge interpreted by scholars as also being synonymous with Elijah? Why is Elijah’s name mentioned as the Messenger of the Covenant at the close of the Old Testament Book of Malachi (meaning My Messenger) which introduces the New Testament writings of the witnesses to Jesus Christ? Why was the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan taken up on the night of September 17, 1985, in his vision-like experience to a particular mountain in the sacred valley of Mexico? How was he transported aboard a fiery metallic ship of light which ultimately carried him into the Great Mother Wheel or craft to commune with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad when he was thought to be dead? How much time do we have to see or experience the fullness of these answers to the above questions posed?
According to the prophecy revealed in the 30th Chapter of the Holy Qur’an, entitled “The Romans,” we may have within three to nine years to discover some of these answers. In the modern imperial Rome of today, which represents America, the same histories are being repeated in their final sequel on the western horizon in these later days. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and the baby Nation of Islam are truly walking in the footsteps of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his Master Teacher W. Fard Muhammad fulfilling the life of Jesus, the Christ and the Messiah that the world has been expecting for the last 2,000 years of history. Thus we are completing the “Passion of the Christ” in its modern day fulfillment.
“In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. I Allah, am the Best Knower. The Romans are vanquished In a near land, and they, after their defeat, will gain victory Within nine years. Allah’s is the command before and after. And on that day the believers will rejoice In Allah’s help. He helps whom He pleases, and He is the Mighty, the Merciful — (It is) Allah’s promise! Allah will not fail in His promise, but most people know not.“-Holy Qur’an, chapter 30, verses 1-6
