Unveiling the Number 19

“Those who believe not in Allah’s messages, Allah guides them not, and for them is a painful chastisement.   Only they forge lies who believe not in Allah’s messages, and they are the liars.”–Holy Qur’an, Surah 16, verses 104-105    

Let us take another look at our assignments of the Supreme Wisdom Lessons.     English Lesson No. C1 consists of 36 lines.   In this number is included 26 numbers symbolic of the 26 letters of the English Alphabet, and the remaining 10 may be taken to represent the 10 numbers of the Mathematical Language.   The Great Master, W. Fard Muhammad, The Great Mahdi, Came revealing Himself in the numerical code and mystical symbolism of letters and numbers and introduced to us courses of study of the Supreme Wisdom in which we must apply the Mathematical Theology of Islam to access greater knowledge and understanding about ourselves and others.    

There is a deep science behind the use of these 26 letters of the English Alphabet and the 10 numbers of the Mathematical Language which create a whole new world of our own even into the formation of an entirely new Galaxy from the one in which we presently reside.   Our ten questions and answers of Student Enrollment begin this process as a study of the Family of the Sun and her nine planets which is referred to as the ‘Big Ten’.  


We are told in Paragraph 6 of 13 early instructions given to the laborers in 1933 that all our lessons of the Supreme Wisdom, given to us to study by the Master, should be memorized by heart because as is stated, “It is all his and her own.   The Time is ripe for us to Re-claim our own, which is knowledge, understanding and a high civilization.   We all are equipped physically and mentally to accomplish the said, above, with little study–young, old, men, women and children.”  

As I reviewed once again the title of our assignment, English No. C1, I thought about the letter C as the initial letter of the name Christ to describe Master W. Fard Muhammad’s first Coming and Mission to find and identify His Lost and Found People (ex-slaves) of America, and Redeem us back to His Father’s House and people and restore us as we once were in the beginning of the Creation of the heavens and the earth.  

I wondered if the next assignment we would receive entitled, English Lesson No. C2 might refer to the second appearance of Christ, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, that (God) has regenerated into Himself upon His Second Coming.   I also noted that the first 7 letters of the English alphabet are used in musical notation- ABCDEFG.  

The sun and the 9 planets of our solar system referred to in the Supreme Wisdom as the Big Ten.

The remaining 19 letters gives us the Mathematical Code of the Holy Qur’an’s Revelation to Prophet Muhammad (May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).   With further analysis, the 26 letters of the English alphabet gives us the basic language of astronomy as well as it serves as the Birth date of the Great Mahdi, Master W. F. Muhammad, born on February 26, 1877.

The number 26 represents the 26 letters of the English alphabet. The month of February contains 8 letters and it is the second month of the year (8 + 2) = 10, which symbolizes the 10 numbers of the Mathematical Language.     We will also note that most nursery rhymes are accompanied by a melody or a tune which helps the student to memorize and learn the words more easily.   It is as if we have a musical brain timed to the rhythms and cadence of the universe.   The early ancient cultures of our aboriginal people most often chant or sing mantras in their ceremonies which include some sort of movement or dance exercise enhanced with meditation and humming which increases the frequency of their communion with God.

I recall the words of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad in the Theology of Time, while tracing Allah’s origin in the darkness of space, when He speaks of being able to calculate on the time when God began to sing and to dance.   Our true bedtime story, as contained in English Lesson Number C1, reveals the identity of Christ as manifested in the Person of Master W. Fard Muhammad coming under a disguise in His Divine Mission of the Resurrection of His dead people.   So our bedtime story is to awaken our children and our families from a deep sleep that has lasted thousands of years on our planet under the dominion of the White man’s rule.  

We will also note that the remaining 19 letters of the English alphabet give up the Mathematical Code of the Holy Qur’an’s Revelation, and there are 19 letters in the spelling of his name, Master W. Fard Muhammad.  

“These are they whose hearts and ears and eyes Allah has sealed and these are the heedless ones.   No doubt that in the Hereafter they are the losers.   Then surely thy Lord, to those who flee after they are persecuted, then struggle hard and are patient, surely thy Lord after that is protecting, Merciful.”–Holy Qur’an, Surah 16, verses 108-110
