Unveiling the Number 19

“When Moses said to his family: Surely I see a fire; I will bring you news thence, or bring you there from a burning brand, so that you may warm yourselves. So when he came to it, a voice issued, saying: Blessed is he who is in search of fire and those around it. And glory be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds! O Moses, surely I am Allah, the Mighty, the Wise.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 27, verse 7-9

On the morning of July 15, 2006, in preparation for our meeting that afternoon with Mr. P. Davaanyam, I turned on the television in my room to one of the local stations. Before my eyes, a man that looked exactly like the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was being interviewed. His facial structure, caramel-colored skin, high cheekbones, widely set eyes and mouth were identical to the image of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He was dressed in the National dress, had a very neat frame, with a voice that sounded very similar to that of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. His dignified carriage was exactly the same.

I thought that this was an experience of deja vu. I sat spellbound observing this figure. I was to learn later in my interview with Mr. Davaanyam that that would not be the only manifestation of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad in his connection to the philosophy of Genghis Khan. We may recall from last week’s article the connection of Elijah’s departure being called up to heaven to the photo on the wall in Mr. Davaanyam’s office of the fiery chariot carrying Prophet Elijah, anointing Genghis Khan and his horsemen.


When I returned to Chicago after my first visit to Mongolia in the winter of 2002, during a visit to the National Center at Mosque Maryam, I opened a book entitled, “Modern Mongolia reclaiming Genghis Khan.” As I was showing some of the Sisters photographs of the people and places in Mongolia, one of the daughters of Minister Donna Muhammad entered the room and looked at the photograph of some of the Mongolian men. Without knowledge of the origin of the book or my recent visit to Mongolia, she exclaimed: “My goodness, he looks just like grandpa!” referring to her grandfather, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.

I told her that that was an interesting observation and that I had just returned from Mongolia and I, too, saw the similarities to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his oriental features. I expressed that this was perhaps the genealogical link to many of our family members in the Black nation.

The meeting that was held on July 15 this year occurred at noon and the appearance and story of Elijah continued. Both Sister Anita Muhammad and I were amazed at the comparisons that Mr. Davaanyam made between Prophet Elijah and its bearing upon the philosophy work of Genghis Khan and the Mongolian Kings. In the Biblical story of Elijah in Kings I and II, we find that this mysterious figure is always caught up in great controversy with the kings and rulers of his time, including Ahab and Jezebel. He was also guided by God to anoint the servants who were to serve as prophets or warners upon his departure.

In II Kings, Chapter 2, we read the details of Elijah’s departure to heaven by a whirlwind and his anointing of Elisha to take his place upon his departure. “And it came to pass when they had gone over to Jordan that Elijah said unto Elisha, ‘Ask what I shall do for thee, before I am taken away from thee.’ And Elisha said, ‘I pray thee let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.’ … And it came to pass, as they still went on and talked, that behold, there appeared a chariot of fire and horses of fire, and separated them, and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.”

Who is Elijah that they can never find an end to his reappearances throughout the Bible’s Old Testament and New Testament? Why is he associated with the fiery chariot taken up by a whirlwind by the horsemen of Israel? Might this image of Elijah and the fiery chariot be a sign of the great Mother’s Wheel and its companion Baby Planes, numbering some 1,500? Is it a coincidence that the Honorable Minister Farrakhan was taken up into a ship that docked ultimately into the Mother’s Wheel, where he convened or communicated with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad?

Was not Elisha anointed by Elijah with a double portion of his spirit to carry on the great work of the resurrection of our people in America and throughout the world? Could this Elisha that was anointed by Elijah be the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan? Could the opposition that he is receiving from world leaders and rulers, including America, be a sign that confirms God’s choice as the final warner to the governments and people of the world? Could the New World Order that Genghis Khan and his successors envisioned be the completion of what the Nation of Islam represents?

“And the day when We gather from every nation a party from among those who rejected Our messages, then they will be formed into groups. Until, when they come, He will say: Did you reject My messages, while you did not comprehend them in knowledge? Or what was it that you did? And the word will come to pass against them because they were unjust, so they will not speak.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 27, verses 83-85
