CHICAGO—For decades, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam were mocked and ridiculed for their Teaching on the reality of “so-called” UFOs or UAPs (unidentified flying objects and unidentified ariel phenomena).

However, the presence of God, His Divine Servants and Black people are directly tied to this “UFO” phenomenon, Nation of Islam Student Minister and author Ilia Rashad Muhammad emphatically stated during his keynote presentation at Mosque Maryam on Sunday, March 19 titled, “The Reality of the Wheel and the Presence of God.” 

Not long after Minister Farrakhan delivered his major Saviours’ Day address on February 26 at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, even more reports began coming from high-ranking U.S. government departments, such as the Pentagon, regarding these crafts which have been interfering with America and the world’s most advanced defense systems, stated Student Min. Ilia Muhammad during his opening remarks. 

“These Wheels as we call them—they call them UFOs—but we always knew what they were because the Honorable Elijah Muhammad answered and identified this reality before the world even heard about a flying saucer or UFOs or mothership as they are talking,” explained Student Min. Ilia Muhammad, producer of the new documentary series, “Answered” and author of the book, “UFOs And The Nation of Islam: The Source, Proof, And Reality Of The Wheels.” He is also a member of the Nation of Islam Research Group.


“Now, whether you know it or not, this UFO phenomena that has the world caught by storm it is directly tied to God’s presence. While the world and governments and militaries pretend or make it seem that they don’t know what these crafts are, while they try to make it seem that it is a problem and an issue of national security for them.

We have to point the world in this direction. We have to let the world know that that man that you hear about and see the Honorable Minister Farrakhan he’s not just talking stuff but he is the actual representative of that power that you call the UFO phenomena,” he explained.

The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught that when studying the reality of God, that it is important to approach the subject matter with a scientific mind and approach, the Memphis-based student minister pointed out. He also cited examples in the Bible and Holy Qur’an that provided evidence of the aim and purpose of what the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught about the Mother Plane and its 1,500 Baby Planes. God provides evidence to confirm His reality, explained Student Min. Ilia Muhammad.

“He’s an evidential God so He gives us reason to believe. He gives us evidence. According to Paul, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen. So, it was not like your faith is grounded in nothing. No, God gives you some evidence now to go by. Otherwise, you’re just believing in hocus pocus and there we go—believing in things that you don’t understand.”

God also shares His secrets with His chosen Servants who then begin sharing some of these secrets with the world. That Servant or Messenger is oftentimes looked upon as sounding different, peculiar or event “outlandish” as they share aspects of God’s Wisdom that others did not know or understand. 

Scientists of this world are now coming to bear witness to many aspects of the Teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad as truth, added Student Min. Ilia Muhammad. He cited examples such as the Earth and its moon at one time being one until a “cataclysmic explosion” occurred. And the origin of human beings and where Blacks and Whites originated from.

“Of course, one of the main things that was taught was this reality of God and this reality of this huge circular plane that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad refers to as the Mother Wheel or the Mother Plane, sometimes the Mother Ship along with its 1,500 or more smaller ships. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad in ‘The Fall of America,’ he says this Mother Plane and her work is a display of the Mightiest God, Master Fard Muhammad to Whom praises are due forever— straight words.”

Scriptures in Jewish, Christian and Islamic theology also point to the reality of God’s Chariots or the Wheel such as in the book of Ezekiel in the Bible, Student Min. Ilia Muhammad explained throughout his presentation.

And while most people view scripture as being history, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught that scripture is 75 percent prophecy. The book of Isaiah in the Bible speaks of one such occurrence of God’s presence on such an object as does the Holy Qur’an, Student Min. Ilia Muhammad pointed out.

“It (Isaiah) gives a prophecy of the coming of God and it says: ‘For behold, the Lord will come with fire and with His chariots. Like a whirlwind to render His anger with fury and His rebuke with flames of fire.’ So not only is God coming based on these prophecies and scriptures, but he seems to be upset about something,” he continued.

“He’s coming with weaponry with some flying chariots. He’s coming even from the Islamic perspective in a day and time where he will be able to be seen,” said Student Min. Ilia Muhammad, referencing the 75th Chapter of the Holy Qur’an where it states that on the day of Resurrection some faces will be “bright” and “looking at their Lord.”

As early as the 1930s, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad was teaching on the existence of the Wheel that His Teacher, Master Fard Muhammad pointed out to him in the sky. Student Min. Ilia Rashad cautioned the audience not to get too excited that the U.S. government is confirming the existence of the Wheel because they are still not revealing the entire truth of its aim and purpose even though they know it. It is purposeful misdirection on the part of the U.S. government, argued Student Min. Ilia Muhammad.

When the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad was arrested in the 1940s the FBI questioned Him about the Wheel and confiscated drawings from the Nation of Islam’s Temples (as they were called at that time) of the Wheel.

“Don’t you get all excited just because last year, the government is just now admitting that these planes exist. That ain’t nothing! Don’t you get excited thinking that the government is about to come clean just because they admitted the simple fact that these planes exist which presupposes that they have been lying for the past 70-plus years,” said Student Min. Ilia Muhammad.

“In fact, when the government comes out telling a little bit of truth that seems to be what is known as an intelligence operation called a ‘limited hangout.’ A limited hangout is an intelligence operation I just learned about a couple of years ago when the government would publicly admit to a smaller truth,” he added.

On February 25, 1942, the “Battle of Los Angeles” happened. The event is cited as one of the first known sighting of so called “UFOs”. The U.S. military fired more than 1,400 anti-aircraft shells at the objects, but all of them missed. A few months later, Nation of Islam temple was raided by law enforcement officers who took information about the Hon. Elijah Muhammad’s teaching on the Mother Plane and the reality of the existence of these crafts. The Los Angeles Times newspaper (above) wrote about the 1942 incident.

“So, they don’t mind admitting the obvious: yes, these are some planes that exists. But what they want to misdirect you from is the source behind these planes, the source of this phenomena! Because if any—listen to me clearly—if any researcher, if any academic, if any scholar,  if any leader actually give an objective study of this so called UFO phenomena, all roads will lead to the Nation of Islam!
