“Go thou and thy brother with My messages and be not remiss in remembering Me. Go both of you to Pharaoh, surely he is inordinate; Then speak to him a gentle word, haply he mind or fear. They said: Our Lord, we fear lest he hasten to do evil to us or be inordinate. He said: Fear not, surely I am with you–I do hear and see.” -Holy Qur’an, Surah 20, verses 42-46
It is not a coincidence that our newspaper, The Final Call, is being published in the same timeframe of the date that corresponds to America’s Independence Day celebration. As we will further note, this has great significance as it also marks our Black Independence Day.
“Let us take a look again at our own Black Independence and how it came on this same day of the 4th of July at the Coming of Allah (God) Who Came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are due forever, on July 4, 1930. The significance of His coming to us, on the Independence Day of the White man is very great. It is their day of great rejoicing. As with former peoples and their governments, their destruction took place when they were at the height of their rejoicing.” –
Excerpts from “The Fall of America” by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, pages 68-69.
In further readings from this chapter on pages 72 and 73, we end with this statement: “Let us rejoice on this day, the 4th of July, in the coming of Allah (God) Who came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad to Whom praises are due forever and give thanks to Him. Let us enjoy the independence he brought to us and the freedom, justice and equality. He brought these things to us not by killing off the Red Indians nor any original settlers. Justice, righteousness is the ammunition used by Allah (God).”
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, the great helper of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, sent two letters to President Bush on Dec. 1, 2001 and Oct. 30, 2002, warning him of the consequences of further prosecuting the war in Iraq. To our knowledge, no response has been forthcoming. Ever since the coming of Master Fard Muhammad and His finding of His Lost and Found People (Nation of Islam), we are no longer considered to be the property of the United States Government. We have been given the Holy Names of Allah such as Farrakhan, Muhammad and Ali, which means that the authority over us is God Himself.
I have placed before us two recognizable flags, one that represents the United States government with 50 stars on a blue background and 13 red and white stripes. This flag corresponds to territorial and border conquests in America. The second flag bearing the emblem of the sun, moon and star represents the universal flag of Islam from which we all derive benefits of light and heat and divine guidance. Each flag covers a sphere of influence and thus represents Independence Day carrying great meaning and significance. Several years ago, a movie was produced called “Independence Day,” and unveiled a threat to this country coming from outer space, which was symbolized in a great mechanical ship (Mother’s Ship) of advanced technology. The mechanics of this ship truly contained weapons of mass destruction targeted on the United States.
In the book, “The Fall of America,” Chapter 16 is also entitled “Independence Day.” Now, 42 chapters later on in the book, we find that Chapter 58 is entitled: The Mother Plane. Reversing the number 58, we get 85; prefixing this number by 19, we get the date 1985. This is the year in which the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan had an extraordinary vision-like experience where he was taken to the Mother Plane and was instructed by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad of the plans of the United States Government to wage a war somewhere on our planet. Is this not a part of what we are experiencing today? Will this war spread to Europe and boomerang back to America? Are we, the Muslims in your midst, the ultimate target of this assault?
When Master Fard Muhammad made His first public appearance in America on July 4, 1930, America was celebrating her 154th year since the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Today, 76 years later in 2006, America is celebrating her 230th anniversary. What does the time hold for us and what might we expect between now and the prophetic time line of 2012-2013? Seventy-six (76) years ago, Herbert Hoover was the president of the United States and Master W. F. Muhammad met directly with him according to the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Could that meeting have represented what the Bible states in Exodus 3, verse 7 about Jehovah’s coming down from heaven talking to Pharaoh, after having seen the affliction of His people in Egypt (America today) and having heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters (slave-masters), knowing their sorrows and grief, making preparation to deliver them, is there a connection to the appearance of the Mother Plane and the vision-like experience of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan to the Great Ship that was pointed to us by Master Fard Muhammad in the early days of His coming?
He, Master W. F. Muhammad, intervened in our affairs on July 4, 1930 and raised the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in our midst as a Saviour and Deliverer. The wicked opponents are always planning the destruction of the righteous, whom God has called and chosen, as it was in the time of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and Pharaoh in Egypt in the time of the delivery of Israel. All of these past histories are a sign of what is taking place in America today.
From “Message to the Blackman in America” by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, he writes on pages 66 and 67, the wicked plans of Pharaoh against God’s people:
“So Pharaoh began to plan the death of Moses and the future of Israel by killing off the babies. Pharaoh wanted Moses put to death because he was teaching his people the truth of Pharaoh and his government, of wickedness. Today, America is afraid of the power our great number presents. She fears that if we ever unite, we would overnight become independent. America desires to keep us a subjected people, so she, therefore, wants to stop our birth (as Pharaoh did). The Birth Control Law or Act of today is directed directly at the so-called Negroes and not at the American Whites. The story of Moses and the Pharaoh is a warning to you today. They are seeking to destroy our race by the birth control law, just as Pharaoh sought to stop Moses’ race by killing off all the male babies at birth. They are seeking to destroy our race through our women. DO NOT LET THEM TRICK YOU.”
On this Independence Day, let us remember as a people that America no longer owns her once-Black slaves. Almighty God Allah has claimed us His Own. They cannot frame a law to confine the righteous servants of Allah with authority. If America desires an extension of time as in the sign of Jonah and the wicked people of Nineveh, I beckon to you to accept the warning of God’s faithful servant in your midst, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, that mercy may be shown to you while there is yet time.
“So go you to him and say: Surely we are two messengers of thy Lord; so send forth the Children of Israel with us; and torment them not. Indeed we have brought to thee a message from thy Lord, and peace to him who follows the guidance. It has indeed been revealed to us that punishment will overtake him who rejects and turns away.” –
