“Ask Me any question that you would Ask God”. – The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad (The Table Talk Collection)
By Ebony S. Muhammad
During the week of February 10th, I was literally on the edge of my seat, filled with suspense, and pure excitement! Aside from preparing for the Nation Of Islam’s Annual Saviours’ Day convention, the release of the new installment of The Teachings 2.0: The Twitter Sayings of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan (Volume 2), complied by Brother Jesse Muhammad, was hot off the press and making its debut.
Like many, I have totally worn out my personal copy of Volume 1, and I dare not describe the degree of wear and tear (smile)! Because of how full Volume 1 was/is I knew that I, along with countless others, would be unashamedly “fanatic” once Volume 2 was released. I’ll be the first to tell you that it met and exceeded all of what I had been waiting for!
Although Volume 2 primarily consists of responses by The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, The National Representative of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, Brother Jesse gifts the reader with another deep and heartfelt testimony in his introduction, “On the Witness Stand II: The Work Ethic of Farrakhan”. His words not only painted a picture for the reader, he invites us to join him in his firsthand experience as he details the work ethic of Minister Farrakhan. His way of recounting each moment makes the reader forget he/she is reading. It’s as if you feel what he (Brother Jesse) feels through his experience. Your mind, spirit and heart are inoculated with a pure and potent string of love directly from one who is thoroughly in love with his teacher.
This is how Volume 2 opens.
There are similarities that crossed over from the first volume regarding the easy-to-read layout where the questions are in bold and the Minister’s responses are underneath. However, the new addition is the table of contents and the arrangement of chapters by subject. The title of each chapter can also be viewed at the top of the Twitter book pages. Readers can now search questions and responses by topics such as Religion & Spirituality, Health & Wellness, Marriage & Family, Youth, Education & Leadership, Business & Economics, Social, Politics & World Affairs and more. This new element of browsing greatly enhances the reading experience.
For those who thought the Minister answered every question they ever had in the first volume, be prepared for another moment of, “How did he know I was thinking about that” in Volume 2! The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan levels the reader up for another round of profound understanding. He heightens the Q & A experience by answering questions one may not have consciously known they had. He addresses matters of the heart, and he does this with the greatest of love, compassion and clarity. He knows how to deliver wisdom according to our nature and according to our condition. He responds in ways where the reader can continue learning; meaning he gives depth. If you are just now becoming familiar with Minister Farrakhan, there is nothing shallow or surface level about him or his Teacher, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad!
He did not know the questions ahead of time. He intentionally did not want to know. His desire was to see how Allah (God) would use him in addressing the vast subject matters with Divine Guidance and Divine Revelation.
One of the many features I’ve always loved about the Twitter book, that I’m sure you have already observed, is the easy-to-carry size. It is compact and perfect for carrying in a purse or backpack without imposing upon other items. I once heard Brother Jesse describe it as a “concealed weapon of mass construction” because of its impact. For those who have the first volume, Volume 2 is slightly larger in terms of content, but it is still well within the standard dimensions.
Another intriguing aspect of Volume 2 is the 9th chapter, “Getting to Know Louis Farrakhan & The Nation of Islam”. In this chapter readers are gifted with an intimate view of Minister Farrakhan concerning himself personally and questions regarding The Nation of Islam that are rarely, if ever, asked in a public setting.
Whatever you’ve wondered about, the questions you may have carried over your life, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan knows all about you and his love runs so deep for you that he’s devoted countless hours answering all of your questions so YOU may know all about yourself, your importance, your purpose and your greatness.
