The Students of Muhammad University of Islam, Detroit, Michigan, Bidding Farewell to Bimini, Gateway to the BahamasBy Mother Tynetta Muhammad | Last updated: Aug 10, 2012 - 9:07:12 AM
“Hast thou not considered how thy Lord dealt with Ad, (Of) Iram, having the lofty buildings, The like of which were not created in the land; And (with) Thamud, who hewed out rocks in the valley; And Pharaoh, the lord of hosts, Who exceeded limits in the cities, And made great mischief therein?”–Holy Qur’an Surah 89, verses 6-12
As we come to the sunset of this present world order of Satan, a new world is coming to birth under the Divine Guidance and Command of Almighty God, Allah, Who is the Lord of the Dawn of a New Day. It is in Allah that we seek refuge from the evil of that which he has created, and from the evil of intense darkness when it comes, and from the evil of those who cast (evil suggestions) in firm resolutions, and from the evil of the envier when he envies. / Holy Qur’an, Surah 113 containing five verses.
We continue as world events are being made manifest with our series on Bimini Reflections with the following skit presented by some of the students of Muhammad University of Islam, Detroit, Michigan, presented upon our departure from the island of Bimini.
Student Presentation in Bimini, 2012
Sis. Cava: As-Salaam Alaikum, Mother.
Mother Tynnetta: Wa-Alaikum Salaam.
Bro. Ahmad: We will begin our skit with words from Bro. Shahid and Bro. Muhammad.
Bro. Shahid: Okay. Let’s take the word Bimini and the word Island and break down every letter with a word. Bimini. … B = BLACK … I = INTELLIGENT … M = MAKER … I = IMMOVABLE … N = NATURAL … and the letter I, also = INTELLIGENT.
Bro. Muhammad: Breaking down the letters and the meaning of the word Island, ISLAND … I = INTELLIGENCE … S = SCIENTIFIC … L = LAND … A = AGRICULTURE ... N = NATURAL … D = DIVINE.
Bro. Shahid: Okay. Our next presenters will be Sister Samayyah and Sister Micah and Brother Ishmael.
Sis. Micah: We have a poem.
Sis. Samayyah: It’s called Bimini.
Sis. Micah: Bimini.
Bro. Ishmael: … ended slavery in 1934.
Sis. Samayyah: We learn from those whom we originated.
Sis. Micah: Bimini …
Bro. Ishmael: … gained independence in 1973.
Sis. Samayyah: Remember the Number 19.
Bro Ishmael: The only place where planting coconut gives you ownership of the land.
Sis. Samayyah: Planting the world that was, and is, as we go into the future.
Sis. Micah: Bimini…
Bro. Ishmael: … where 100 percent of the population eats seafood.
Sis. Samayyah: We stand on the threshold of history.
Sis. Micah: Bimini …
Bro. Ishmael: …where boat-repairing was the first job.
Sis. Micah: Slaves were brought and shackles were removed.
Sis. Samayyah: Bimini …
Bro. Ishmael: Slaves swam here for freedom and couldn’t get the shackles off.
Sis. Samayyah: A peaceful land where cultural revolution begins.
Both Sisters (in unison): Stop the boat, and let me off at Bimini!
Bro. Ahmad: This is the last part. It is a reflection based on our time here. I read your article, Mother [Tynnetta], in The Final Call. The title, I believe was Bimini and the High Energy Vortex. So I started thinking, ‘What is a vortex?’ I’ll read you the definition. Then I’ll elaborate on what I observed.
A vortex is: ‘A whirling mass of water, especially one in which a force or suction operates as a whirlpool. A whirling mass of air, especially one in the form of a visible column or spiral, as in a tornado. A whirling mass of fire, flame, etc. A state of affairs likened to a whirlpool of divine activity, irresistible force, etc. Something regarded as drawing into its powerful current everything that surrounds it. In Cartesian philosophy, a rapid, rotary movement of cosmic matter about a center regarded as accounting for the origins of phenomena or a system in a body of space.’
After I read that, I was thinking about how we’re surrounded by water, and how Bro. Jon brought up a point about how you [Mother Tynnetta], whether we knew it or not, telepathically called us to the Island. And we were meant to be here. We all came and surrounded you like the center of a vortex and I started thinking about how water meeting the vortex and starts spinning with the water.
I noticed while we were in the water, the waves were hitting us and we all somehow rotated around you. While we were in the water, I realized that you were the center. You were in the center of everybody else, and as the waves were spinning us around, you slowly were moving towards the coastline or the sand.
I thought about a vortex when it’s spinning, it’s like constantly bringing in the ‘new.’ Every time it spins, it’s something new and it kills the old. It just keeps revolving. It keeps spinning constantly bringing in the new as it keeps revolving and spinning.
“Nay, when the earth is made to crumble to pieces, And thy Lord comes with the angels, ranks on ranks; And hell is made to appear that day. On that day man will be mindful, and of what use will being mindful be then? He will say: O would that I had sent before (this) my life!” --Holy Qur’an, Surah 89, verses 21-24
