Nation of Islam speaks about UFOs after UFO hovers over Dome of the Rock

Nation of Islam event to include talk of UFOs

2011-02-27 – USA today

CHICAGO (AP) — The Nation of Islam, long known for its promotion of black nationalism and self-reliance, now is calling attention to another core belief that perhaps isn’t so well-known: the existence of UFOs.

When thousands of followers gather in suburban Chicago this weekend for the group’s annual Saviours’ Day convention, one of the main events will include a panel of scientists discussing worldwide UFO sightings, which they claim are on the rise.

The idea of seeking the divine in the skies is deeply rooted in the Chicago-based Nation of Islam, whose late leader Elijah Muhammad detailed in speeches and writings a massive hovering object loaded with weapons he called “The Mother Plane” — although religion experts, Nation of Islam leaders and believers offer very different interpretations of what exactly happens aboard the plane, its role or how it fits into religious teachings.

It’s one of the group’s more misunderstood — and ridiculed — beliefs, something organizers took into account when planning the convention, which starts Friday and ends Sunday with Minister Louis Farrakhan‘s keynote address.

“There’s enough evidence that has been put before the world and public,” Ishmael Muhammad, the religion’s national assistant minister, told The Associated Press. “There have been enough accounts and sightings and enough movies (documentaries) made, I don’t think you would find too many people that would call it crazy.”

During last year’s Saviours’ Day speech, Farrakhan for the first time in years discussed in detail a vision he had in Mexico in 1985 involving an object he calls “the wheel.” Using charts, photos and drawings, he spent almost four hours describing how he was invited aboard and heard Elijah Muhammad speak to him. Farrakhan says that experience led him to inklings about future events.

Farrakhan, 77, has said the wheel, with its great capacity for destruction, contains the “wisdom to purify the planet,” but has harmed no one so far. He also claimed there have been governmental attempts to cover-up proof of the wheel, which he says many call UFOs.

Nation of Islam leaders often quote Biblical references to the prophet Ezekiel — along with Elijah Muhammad’s teachings — when it comes to the wheel. In his book of articles on the subject, Muhammad described a planet-sized manmade vessel that orbits earth and is purported to be loaded with 1,500 planes or wheels, words that have since been used interchangeably. Their purpose is unclear.

Some experts have made comparisons to the Biblical concept of Rapture, which teaches believers will be taken up to heaven, while everyone else will remain on earth for a period of torment, concluding with the end of time.

Why the Nation is turning more attention to the wheel now isn’t certain. One explanation could be an attempt to keep longtime Nation of Islam followers happy after recent years during which Farrakhan has haltingly tried to move the group toward more mainstream Islam and pushed for the inclusion of other groups like Latinos and immigrants, said Jimmy Jones, a religion professor at Manhattanville College in New York.

The history of the highly-secretive group — which doesn’t release membership or the number of mosques — has been marked by splinter groups and fracture.

“This is a way that the Nation of Islam defines itself,” said Jones about the wheel’s significance.

But Ishmael Muhammad, who is widely considered a potential successor to Farrakhan, said reasons for the recent interest is simply that it’s a core belief.

He said the theme of the convention, which commemorates the birth of the religion’s founder and is expected to draw more than 10,000 people this weekend, is about scientific analysis. Another session is about natural disasters and what those events mean religiously.

“It is written, that these things would happen,” he said about Scripture. “We should prepare for such calamities.”

UFO spotted hanging over Jerusalem

UFO spotted hanging over Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem

A UFO has been spotted hovering over one of the holiest sites in Islam, the Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

It is the place where the prophet Muhammad is said to have ascended to heaven, built on top of a site sacred to Judaism.

The event was captured on camera by an American tourist and posted on YouTube.

It could easily be dismissed as a hoax, but someone else filmed what appears to be same event from a different angle.

The glowing ball of light dropping until it hangs just over the Dome of the Rock, before suddenly shooting off as if disturbed.

    Don’t really see what you’re getting at with this post. Is it just as information or would you like a discussion on this… this might be crazy for most people, more specifically ‘Christians’…

    Some would like to believe that ‘ufos’ exist and yet others would believe you’re crazy to just even think about them.

    Believing they exist and making them as ‘gods’ are two totally different things. Just like I believe in satan’s reality but making/believing him being ‘god’ is two different things…

    Some interesting reading Deb’s if you have not perhaps have already read it, is a book “Black is Beautiful by Ruckman” although he gets a lot of negative comments about this particular book I’d like to say that I too can make a person seem like a ‘nut case’ if I don’t write all the facts. (much like people have done regarding this site… )

    Anyway keep up the work of ‘discerning’ ;-)

    I posted this article because there is an INCREASED interested (not from my side) from the world in the occult and the supernatural and an increased sighting in UFOs. To us Christians that would be DEMONIC activity.

    If you put two and two together the bible does warn us about these things so WATCH AND PRAY!

  • Lourens

    Hey Deb’s

    Understood… thanks ;-)

    Grooovveeeeyyyy

  • Roy

    This was proven to be a hoax one day after being reported

  • kasey

    I dreamed that the Dome of the Rock will be plucked out like an orange being plucked from a tree and the Jewish Temple will be rebuilt there which will start the tribulation period. Repent the Lord is coming!!!!

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    kasey

    Hmmm, do you have bible scripture to support this?

  • Dave

    Even if this were truth; I think this has something to do with humans. Has anyone seen History’s Channel Documentary about UFO’s??? Yo should search about it, they reveal all truth about Hitler’s plans. Nowadays UFO’s might be just another billionaires toy.
    That’s all folks God bless ya’ll Jesus lives!

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    You might be right! I do believe that man’s knowledge of technology is so advanced that he can create/make things (holograms) like this in the sky – and it’s going to get worse, much worse.

  • Burning Lamp

    Oh yes, and we can see that the world is being prepped for the greatest delusion of all. Perhaps it will be a combination of human technology and demonic apparitions such as the Virgin Mary Queen of Heaven that are obviously demonic in origin. I have always wondered how the Muslims would be brought into the fold – they visit the Marian shrines and if this personage appears to them and tells them to cooperate w/Rome – would that not be possible? Actually I hadn’t thought of that before now, but it seems to make perfect sense.

  • Martin Horan

    So Kesey had a dream. I wonder if it’s an awake one. I guess a lot of us could say we often have a similar one. But, alas, we have to go back to Scripture to check it out. I know people who have had dreams telling them things that never came to pass.
    As to Farrakhan: I wonder if ever talks even the smallest bit of sense. I suppose as he’s human he must do occasionally. Even the silliest people do so once in a while.
    Farrakhan is a black Moslem (or Muslim as he likes to be called). Can you imagine such a thing? Why would any black person want to be a Moslem? After all, in one of the Haddiths (Sahih Bukari 1:63, 367; 2:122, 241; 4:744) we are told that Mohammad was white. In verses 1:662, 644 & 9:256 the same Mohammad calls the black people “raisin heads”.
    I don’t think I’d be following someone who was so prejudiced against any people, let alone my own.

  • harry

    I do not believe in UFO’s.
    I believe that they are demons that are maifesting and make people believe that we are not alone int he universe.
    The more people believe htis lie the better to control them.
    Who knows maybe satan will come in a ufo.
    What I do know is that neither God nor Jesus will use a ufo to come to earth.
    He is almighty and creator of all why would he need a spaceship?
    Farrakhan is a know false prophet for profit.

  • Deborah (Discerning the World)

    harry

    You are absolutely correct!
