Traveling with the Wise Man—the Honorable Elijah Muhammad—and his companion and helper, Minister Louis Farrakhan, meeting at the junction of the Nile River

“And We send not messengers but as givers of good news and warning, and those who disbelieve contend with falsehood to weaken thereby the Truth, and they take My messages and the warning for a mockery. And who is more unjust than he who is reminded of the messages of his Lord, then he turns away from them and forgets what his hands have send before? Surely We have placed veils over their hearts, lest they understand it, and a deafness in their ears. And if thou call them to the guidance, they will even then never follow the right course.” -Holy Qur’an, Surah 18, verses 56 & 57

Arriving at the junction of the Nile River that is mentioned in the story of Moses’ travels in search of knowledge with his companion refers to the time of the merging of spiritual consciousness into the human and divine reality of God. It is at the site of Khartoum, the capital of the Sudan, where the Nile River branches into two tributaries. One of the branches, called the Blue Nile, flows through Ethiopia and the other branch, referred to as the White Nile, flows to its source at Lake Victoria in the country of Uganda. The Nile River, which is the longest river on our planet, is referred to in the Sacred Writings or Lessons given to every new Nation of Islam convert or student as an assignment in his or her search for greater knowledge.

In No. 11 of the Problem Book, the Nile River is mentioned in a reference to the building of the Suez Canal. A timeline is given for a certain number of stockholders who invested in the building of the Canal. It is stated that those investors would receive a certain return on their investments within a stated period of time. The calculated time begins from May 26, 1869, which is the Reconstruction Period that followed the Civil War, to the year 1933/1934, a period of 64 years. Could this be a sign of reparations in the modern terms owed to the slaves for their 300-plus years of servitude slavery in America?

All of these Lessons and Problems are calculating the time that it will take certain events to take place in our lifetime. Thus, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, in his preparation for his departure from our midst, began to reveal publicly some of the Secrets of Time in a 22-week series of lectures from Mosque Maryam entitled, “The Theology of Time.” He placed everyone around him in specific positions to be tested and examined on their faith and belief as the warriors of Muhammad, placed in the battlefield of the world. This is written in the history of Prophet Muhammad, may the peace and blessings be upon him, and in the revelation of the Holy Qur’an describing the Battle of Uhud in Surah 3. It was in this battle when Muhammad placed a certain number of archers poised at the hillock called Uhud in Arabia, located near Medina.

In the story of Moses’ travels with his companion, the retracing of their footsteps implies that we would repeat aspects of those prophets’ lives that came before us and we would be tried and examined to see if we would be qualified for acceptance. by Allah’s Grace, into His new Heavenly Kingdom.

Traveling with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his companion, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, means we have come to the junction of two worlds, which marks the separation of the Original Man and people from an unalike world that has dominated the planet for the last 6,000 years.

According to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, his Master Teacher pointed out to him the existence of two stars in the southeast corner of the sky. These two stars, a red and a blue one, are seen every 50,000 years, marking a universal change in the life of the civilization on Earth. Such an astronomical event will cause the disappearance or disruption of one world that does not correspond to the Original Design of the Almighty Creator God based on Absolute Truth and Righteousness.

The last appearance of these two stars occurred 50,000 years ago at the time when the head of our family or tribe, named Shabazz, took his family out of Egypt into the jungles of East Asia, or Africa as our continent is called today. So Moses and his companion also left Egypt, traveling southeast to the junction of the Nile River which branched into two tributaries, or two worlds with the returning to the Source of Knowledge of the Original Man and People.

As Moses and his companion traveled with the Wise Man, he literally personified the presence of God, Himself, ever revealing higher and higher states of spiritual consciousness. All of these parables, paradoxes and metaphors explaining the Presence of God as both human and divine are signs leading up to the Divine Creation of a whole New World Order that will erase the things of the past, even renewing our way of thinking. It is written in the Divine Scripture that when He, God, comes at the end of the world as we know, He makes all things new—even to the regeneration of the cells of our bodies that will take on a new growth of immortality. In that new life, we will not experience decay, but will choose the time when we depart.

Three-fourths of the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, given to him from the Person of Master W. Fard Muhammad, was relating to the life of the Hereafter. The science and teachings of another world is based upon longevity of ceaseless lifetimes as we know it.

There I sat in two churches in New York, enthralled over the majesty of the words of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan addressing large audiences in Brooklyn and Harlem. This past Mother’s Day weekend, there was open dialogue on the mobilization of our people and nation for the Millions More Movement in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Million Man March. This was surely a cherished moment when inner guidance came to me to begin the writing of my testimony of the companion book that I had planned for several years as a sequel to my book “My Life’s Journey Traveling with The Wise Man”

To be continued.

“And thy Lord is Forgiving, Full of Mercy. Were He to punish them for what they earn, He would certainly hasten the chastisement for them. But for them there is an appointed time from which they will find no refuge. And these towns—We destroyed them when they did wrong. And We have appointed a time for their destruction.”

—Holy Qur’an, Surah 18, verses 58 & 59
