Does this article involve the Bible and Holy Qur’an?

In the New Oxford American Dictionary the word “prophesy” means, “say that (a specified thing) will happen in the future.” Is this going on now?

In Fall Of America, The Honorable Elijah Muhammad wrote: “The disbeliever believes that which he sees present and not that which is prophesied to come.”

I had a powerful experience that I put in the book Closing The Gap … Section 10. That started the process of producing this book. That happened in 2006 when the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and his delegation were in Cuba.

Jabril Muhammad: Dear Brother Minister, to reiterate, I don’t remember the exact date when you and your party were in Cuba when I had an experience that I have mentioned to you twice. It seemed like it was very short. I woke up in it.

It was maybe 5:30 a.m. when I woke up, when I knew I had just seen the Honorable Elijah Muhammad as clear as day. In the scene he was more to my left. I saw you.

You were somewhat less clear and a little below the middle of the scene and somewhat towards the right.

Almost simultaneously I heard what seemed to me to be a contingent, I wouldn’t say troops, but a small contingent or body of troops coming from over towards the upper right.

Then the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said to me, “They are coming for me in him.”

Immediately, I knew he was referring to you.

I woke up and the scene was still there.

After a while, I thought to call you, but I said no that would be very improper.

Moreover, I probably couldn’t reach him anyway. But it had an impact on me and then of course, when I got a chance I shared it with you.

I shared it with him and put his response in the book to help others.

That caused me to telephone others to help me to make that book. That process started in March 2006.

Now, Brother Minister, I would like for you to tell me what you think about that experience.

Minister Farrakhan: First, it’s a very profound experience that answers many questions for me personally and probably for others as well. I would like to start by going back to the time when I was with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and he said to me, “Brother I want your mind. I want you to line your mind up with my mind so that there will be one mind.”

If that is not the perfect recall of his words, it’s 99 percent correct. Then later on he said to me, “Brother, I’m going away. I’m going away to study. I’ll be gone for approximately three years. Don’t change the teachings while I’m gone. And if you are faithful when I return, I will reveal the new teaching through you.”

Now, of course, Brother Jabril, his words have great impact on me, but understanding them takes time. Then of course, in 1975, February 25th, ten past nine New York time, ten past eight Chicago time, I get a call from my son Joshua, who was at the hospital (Mercy Hospital) where the Messenger was; saying to me that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad had expired. Coming to Chicago, seeing a casket with one that looked like my father and teacher, only about twenty to twenty-five years younger; participating in a funeral; carrying the casket to the cemetery; for me, at that time, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad had expired. None of the things then that he said to me made sense. … .

As you know there had been difficulty between him and his dad. I did not wish to divide the nation, nor did I feel confident that I could lead in the absence of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, particularly if he were dead. I could hold the teachings if he were gone and I knew he was coming back. But he already taught us that you don’t come back from death. … .

Thirty months later, I came to the conclusion that, that was not best for me—maybe even less time than that. I saw things that of which I disagreed and I did not wish to upset the house. So I decided to leave (quietly) and try to resume my music career, which was a complete failure. The God took away everything from me musically. I almost had nothing left. … .

I met you on that wonderful day in September of 1977. You gave me a book to read and on the third day of reading that book you came to the hotel room. And I told you, “Your eye operation was successful. The scales have been removed from my eyes.” And then the long journey began. You gave me something to read. You told me even at that time that, “The Honorable Elijah Muhammad was yet alive.” And I, in my heart said, “Oh my poor Brother. He loves the Honorable Elijah Muhammad so much he can’t bear the thought that the Honorable Elijah Muhammad is deceased.” And I said to him, “Well whether he’s alive or not, he’s not here Brother. So the work is on us to do.” And I gently passed it off. He (Jabril) gave me what I would call a commentary or something that you would add to a book that’s not in the book and he gave it to me to read on the Honorable Elijah Muhammad possibly being alive. … . And when he left us in 1975, he knew that what he desired to do had been done, it only needed time; watering; circumstances; events for him to grow again in me. … .

Coming back to your experience, when you heard his voice saying, “They are coming for me in him.” That suggests to me that oneness with him has been accomplished and he now has my mind. And my mind is now lined up with his in more ways than I probably at this juncture fully understand, but will grow to manifest it more and more. It also signifies a great, great deal of power. It also signifies the fear of the enemy who put in Esquire magazine a cartoon with the former late president of France, Charles de Gaulle who said, speaking of White people, that it was Charles de Gaulle, Moshe Dayan and others from Israel and other places, “Were it not for this man, we would have a glorious future.”

In fact, he also came to clearly see that not only did his teacher escape a death plot but that he was also among the potential victims of this plot.

Now, Is what I’m writing in this article, does it involves the Bible and the Holy Quran?

More next issue, Allah willing.
