“Those who believe and keep their duty. For them is good news in this world’s life and in the Hereafter. There is no changing the words of Allah. That is the mighty achievement. And let not their speech grieve thee. Surely might belongs wholly to Allah. He is the Hearer, the Knower.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 10, verses 63-65

“I begin this article in answer to an inquirer who wishes confirmation on information I published in a recent article in this series on Korea concerning Drummer (percussionist) and artist, Dae Won (Hwan) Kim. He is also known as Kim Dae-Hwan and simply as Kim. Music critic, Kim Jin-Muk, spoke of his unique gifts as an artist in an article of which I will quote the concluding paragraph.
Kim is not only concerned with music. He is proud of himself as one of the masters of miniature engraving in the world. It is recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records that he engraved 283

characters of the Prajna-Paramita Sutra on a rice grain. He does not think engraving is any different from music. He says he learns music through any engraving and vice versa. As there are many paths leading into a mountain, so there are many ways to the mystery of life which reveals itself only in silence.”
In the Logo designed for the Xodus products incorporating the Number 19, as viewed in a lying down position, we can easily discern the image of an eye which I have likened to The All-Eye Seeing signature of Almighty God, Allah. This image of The All-Seeing Eye is also incorporated in the design of the great Seal of the United States.
According to the history of its initial drafting and design, it occurred subsequent to the same day of the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. During the years that followed, several other ideas were suggested to represent the destiny of America’s future. One of them was to show Pharoah in his chariot with his army gathered at the Red Sea. Across the sea was to be a replica of Moses raising his staff to the heavens with the parting of the waters, while a pillar of fire was seen in the background in the clouds. Around these images was to be engraved the words, “Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God.”
Needless to say, all of these images are pointing to the Exodus and the giving of the Law in Sinai and its description read in Exodus, Chapters 19 and 20.
Now let us return to our review of the Program and Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad published in a 7 Unit Diagram combined with the Muslim’s 22- point Program of Wants and Beliefs operating from the mathematical principle of Pi (ð) as a fraction of 22/7. If the Head of the Diagram represents Spiritual Leadership, then let us use the letter “S” to express the meaning of Spiritual. If the second part of the Diagram represents Education and training, let us use the letter “E.” And finally, under the categories of Food, Clothing, Shelter, Technology and Health, we use the letter “E” again to represent Economic Development. Then we have the word in combination with these three letters the word “SEE.” Once again we may make the connection to the All-Eye-Seeing Symbol, expressed in both our Lesson Code and in the Seal of the United States Government. Thus, we are a growing Nation within a Nation by the Providential Hand and Divine Guidance of Almighty God, Whose Proper Name is Allah.
“Now, surely, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is Allah’s. And what do follow those who call on associates besides Allah? They follow naught but conjecture, and they only lie.” —Holy Qur’an, Surah 10, verse 66
