Excerpts of words delivered by Sister Minister Ava Muhammad at Mosque Maryam in Chicago, Illinois on Sunday, March 14, 2010
Minister Farrakhan said of himself, that the word Prophet is really to cheap a word to apply to him. Here is some further enlightenment on that from Study Guide #9, ‘Our Intimate Relationship with Rabbil-Alamin’. Key word, “the Prophets struggle in the absence of God with light from God that is considered in symbolic language moonlight. And since the moon represents the sun in the absence of the sun, it has no light of it’s own. It borrows light from the sun and reflects it to the earth. If you have limited light, you have limited sight; therefore you can only provide a limited example.”
If prophets are moonlight, that’s not perfect light. It does not allow you to see with perfect clarity. In moonlight, we see partly, but in sunlight, we see fully. Moonlight does not display color. You can see the outline of things in the moonlight, but only in the sunlight can you see a thing exactly as it is. Praise is due to Allah. So the Holy Qur’an reads “We take Allah’s color and who is better than Allah at coloring and we are his worshippers”.
I submit to you today that Minister Farrakhan is unlike any thing in this reality. His presence is actually holding life up at this moment; at the end of the 25,000 year, 50,000 year, even 66 trillion year time that we have been in rebellion to Allah’s will. He is a manifestation of mercy. He is laying on our brain beloveth a base for a change in life that is going to be so dramatic, that if we did not have preparation, our brains would explode.
We are now at the end of the time where we are going to defend our Minister against false charges, that he is a racist, that he is a hater, that he is an anti-Semite. The law does not require you to prove a negative! We are not here to stand for what he has not done or said, but what he is doing and saying!
And so I say to us, who live today because of this word. You are looking at a cancer survivor. The doctor’s told me 30 years ago, that’s a rap, you are out of here in six months. I went out and heard him on a Friday night in 1981 in New York City and I still stand here!
Yes! All of us have got to reframe this! No, the Minister is not in any danger, you can’t run up on the sun! The sun shoots flames 30,000 miles into the atmosphere! So it’s not about protecting him, it’s about protecting ourselves. And the only way we can do that is when opposition comes against him, stop trying to argue. I say this to the so-called Negro scholars and leaders. Stop engaging and allowing yourself to be tested by the enemies of our liberation who demand that you denounce and repudiate the sun.
If the sun burns somebody, it only burns them because they are not natural to the solar system! And so if it burns you it’s because you don’t belong here! And so when they come and they demand that you repudiate him, stop with the long speeches and give them two words. 'Farrakhan said this and Farrakhan said that' so what! Where were you when I was on chemo therapy? Where were you when I was lost and among the dead, deaf, dumb and blind? I don’t care what he said about you. You may have been offended but you never said it was a lie. That is what sunlight does, it exposes you!
I dare you allow anyone to assign themselves a position of pre-eminence in your life. Allah ask, how can you deny Allah when you were without life and He gave you life. Sunshine is not a term of art, it is a scientific term. There is always sunlight; we would not live without it. But when sunlight is unfiltered, pure and there are no obstacles it’s called sunshine. So today, we are going to get pure, unadulterated sunshine.
May Allah bless all of us with the light of understanding as I leave you in peace.
