“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
It is now 30 years since the departure of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad in February 1975. During this period of time, the Nation of Islam has fallen under Great Trial in his absence. Many events have taken place that are now finding closure to an aspect of our journey in the wilderness under his Spiritual Leadership and that of his Great Helper and Spokesperson, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, cast in the role of Moses and his brother, Aaron, coming before Pharaoh and the Children of Israel. This period of his departure characterizes the departure from his way and practices (sunnah), and his Divine Guidance based upon the Principles of Islam as revealed in the Holy Qur’an.
Time has been extended, as we read in Surah 20, verse 86, which speaks of Moses’ return in these words: “So Moses returned to his people angry, sorrowing. He Said: O my people, did not your Lord promise you a goodly promise? Did the promised time, then, seem long to you, or did you wish that displeasure from your Lord should come upon you, so that you broke (your) promise to me?”
Prior to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s departure, he established a Residence in the neighboring country of Mexico in 1974, and left me with certain guidelines and instructions, which were verified one year later in my discovery of an old copy of “Early Instructions to the Laborers,” along with our Lessons that belonged to him, that I found pressed between the leaves of one of his books. From that day forward, I have connected his personal words of instructions with the study of our Supreme Wisdom Lessons, Holy Qur’an and Bible as the source of my investigative studies. Other proofs have surfaced which substantiate my claim along with others that he is very much alive, operating from a higher state of spiritual consciousness and being. I have lived these past 30 years knowing this Truth and seeking the scientific evidence to prove it.
The year 2004 marked a turning point in this progression of ongoing experiences, which I have partially held back until the proper time. Last year during the Spring Equinox, I premiered the Musical Production of “Ta Ha: The Final Call Symphonic Suite in Mexico’s Sacred Valley, as a prelude to its presentation which came one year later at the 10th Commemorative Anniversary of the Million Man March in Washington, D.C. on October 15. .This date also corresponded to the launching of the Millions More Movement. Thirty years represents a generation; thus, it has taken the birth of another generation of young people to fulfill the Prophecy that will hopefully bring in a New World Order of Peace on our Planet, after a horrific period of violence and war. This number 30 is extremely important in comprehending the timeline of events that was initiated in the first 30 years of the last 20th Century.
In the historical chronology of our Nation’s History, the year 1930 marked the first Public Appearance of the Great Mahdi, Master Fard Muhammad, Who came under disguise, but Who was recognizable by the proper use and application of the Mathematical Language. The most profound understanding of the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is rooted in the science of Mathematics and is also coded in the Revelation of the Holy Qur’an. That is why “Elijah Muhammad” is an enigma to the modern scholars of religion today, but the higher scientists recognize who he is and have identified his Master Teacher.
If we take the two sets of numbers that make up the date 1930, we pronounce 19 and 30. When these two numbers are multiplied, the result is 570, (19 times 30).
These numbers correspond to the exact date and year of the birth of Prophet Muhammad more than 1,400 years ago in the Holy City of Mecca in Arabia. Master W.F. Muhammad, The Great Mahdi, was also born in the Holy City of Mecca, in the year 1877, in answer to the prophecy that such a One would be born into the world, at the end of the time, a descendant from the line of the Prophet, bearing his name and would be heralded as The Great Mahdi, who would set down tyrants and establish a Rule of Justice and usher in a new Millennium of Peace. It is this Great One who made His first Appearance in America in 1930 at the age of 53, while His chosen disciple, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was 33 years old, with a 20-year difference in their ages.
Within a three-and-a-half to nearly four-year period, the Nation of Islam was founded, and the Divine Work and Mission of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was initiated after receiving direct contact and Teachings from the Master prior to His departure in 1934. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad was left in charge with the Spiritual Resurrection of his mentally dead people, and he was given by the Master a manual of Sacred Writings called the “Supreme Wisdom Lessons” to teach and train others into God’s Marvelous Light.
“The past history shows that the Almighty Allah sends Prophets and Apostles for the people’s guide and example, and through them His Mystery was revealed. And these who follow the Apostle would see the Light.” (Supreme Wisdom Manual of Instructions to the first converts to Islam in America).
“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
