How important is the value of communication, especially in referring to this time, which is called, “the end of time?” What time or whose time are we living in—right now?  What are or should we be doing about this time?

I’ve been bearing witness that we are at the end, of the “end of time” and the beginning of the next. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has already explained this. How close are we doing that which he is doing?

I was in the process of writing a book in the early nineties when I interviewed Mother Tynnetta Muhammad. Below is part of that interview.

Jabril Muhammad (JM): Now, let’s go all the way now to the Minister’s vision. Let’s jump all the way to 1985, in Mexico, when the Minister had that vision. There’s an earthquake on the 19th day of September. The Minister comes with his wife, Mother Khadijah, to your home and he talks to you and his wife, about his vision.

As best, as you can recollect, did he say to you, something of importance to tell you. How do you recall that experience?

Mother Tynnetta Muhammad (MTM): How did he let me know that he had the vision?

JM:  Yes.

MTM: He came into my house. He was walking up the steps towards the kitchen, and then all of a sudden he got to the door and as he was greeting me, right at the door, he said “Oh.” He says, “I just remembered that I had an experience.”

JM: Now where was his wife Mother Khadijah at that moment?

MTM: I don’t recall exactly. She sort of walked in, and maybe she was in the living room or just walked a little bit away from where he was, but not far away.

JM: That’s when he began? Did he sit you both down?

MTM: No. He just said it kind of casually. And I said, “Really.” I said, “What happened?” Then he went on to explain. Half standing and then I believe he sat down in the kitchen.

JM: And where is his wife, at that time? And did he tell you both what he did in the kitchen?

MTM: I believe she was by that time, in the kitchen.

JM: So he just said as a matter of fact and in that manner?

MTM: Yes. And I said, “Brother Minister,” I said, “What you are saying is very important.” That’s what I remember you know, and he was like “Oh?” and “Huh?”

JM: He would be laughing if he were here right now.

MTM: Yes.

JM: How did his wife react?

MTM: I don’t recall, because I was mostly concentrating on what he had said. He had dropped quite a bit. And I really don’t recall her response or expression or anything like that very clearly, really.

JM: OK. Now of course I heard or learn of his vision from him when he comes here a week or so later. Now to your best recollection, do you know if he said it to anybody else between the time he talked to you two and the time he talked to me? 

MTM: Did he come immediately from here to Phoenix?

JM: Yes; from Mexico, to here to Phoenix.

MTM: Did he? Well then he had to have. And then next time we heard it in a big manner was in New York when he was sitting with us up in that area.

JM: Then the next time he told it was on the plane. I wanted to get it on tape. I still have the tape somewhere and in the middle of talking, he broke down and started crying and said that it was like he had an inoculation and that now it’s wearing off and he was beginning to sense something strange and significant had happened to him.

It was a powerful experience with him on that plane, as we went to New York.

MTM: For many who don’t want to hear the truth because the truth is very harsh sometimes. It’s harsh, but we must hear it.

JM: You know, Mother Muhammad, I was reading, in a book—it does have bearing because I cite this in the manuscript that so many people cannot accept the superiority of another person ... over themselves in certain areas.

That’s pitiful and that’s ridiculous. I intend to comment on this in one of the chapters of this book.

*********

Much has happened from that time to now, especially this year 2014 when the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan will speak to the Black people in the USA and to the world.

More next issue, Allah willing.
