(Editor’s Note: The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered a powerful message Nov.18 at Mosque Maryam in Chicago, the headquarters of the Nation of Islam. He gave marching orders for how to approach this holiday season without spending any money by acting more like Christ.)
“Now, the last thing I want to say: This week coming up is Thanksgiving. Such a phony holiday. Ask the Indians is it a nice holiday for them The next day is Black Friday. I’d like to give us some marching orders.See, Martin Luther King in his last speech in Memphis, April 3, the day before he was killed. Listen to Dr. King’s words.
He said, “We don’t have to argue with anybody. We don’t have to curse and go around acting bad with our words. We don’t need any bricks and bottles. We don’t need any Molotov cocktails. We just need to go around to these stores and to these massive industries in our country and say, ‘God sent us by here to say to you that you are not treating his people right. And we’ve come by here to ask you to make the first item on your agenda fair treatment where God’s children are concerned. Now, if you are not prepared to do that, we have an agenda that we must follow. And our agenda calls for withdrawing economic support from you.”
Now I hope you haven’t gone shopping yet. Listen, this Christmas, let’s make it a real mass for Christ. Listen to what I’m saying: Christ is not interested in you going into the stores making the already rich, rich; putting yourself in debt for another year to give out gifts. Jesus didn’t ask you to do that. When you go home, take your Bible, look at the 10th chapter of Jeremiah. Going out in the forest, cutting down a tree, bringing it home, decking it with silver and gold: That’s what the heathens do. You don’t need no Christmas tree in your house. That’s pagan practice. Leave the tree. ‘Now, come on, Farrakhan.’ Leave the tree. Leave the lights. Because you’re in the end of the month, Santa ain’t paying your electric bill. Leave the mythical Santa at the North Pole or wherever the hell he is. You leave Santa and don’t you ever again spend money on your children and give the credit to a mythical Caucasian and make your children think that they got to continue to look at White people to get things you give them with your hard sweat and blood.
Now, I’d like to celebrate this Christmas with you. Now, we know that Jesus was not born on the 25th. But here’s what I want you and I to do. There’s a 107th Surah in the Qur’an. It’s titled Ma’un, Acts of Kindness. It doesn’t cost money to be kind. You know what, if you came out of your house, met your neighbor and spoke a kind word, that would be the best gift that you gave your neighbor. ‘Well, my neighbor, they ain’tright. They don’t treat me right.’ I know. But you don’t have to act ugly because they act ugly. You turn it around and you speak a kind word. If you see an elderly person, now they’re going to get suspicious because you usually will knock them over and take their gifts. You know how you do.
But this Christmas, let love break out in the ghetto. They won’t even know what happened the next day when they see a measure of peace. Now, we know that can happen because we did it at the Million Man March. We saw peace and joy just being kind to each other. And if you got money that you want to spend, find a Black business in your neighborhood or wherever you can get to it and spend your money with your own. Keep the money kind of circulating with us. And this Christmas you really will have started a revolution with us. Don’t argue over a parking space. If they say, ‘I got here first,’ and you know you were first, ‘Oh really. Well, gee, I didn’t know. Okay, brother. Have a great day. Have a wonderful day.’ Be kind. Be loving to one another. Have a good word to say.
Sisters, don’t go up to no brother with a big smile, ‘I’m trying to be kind.’ You go to another sister and you be as kind and loving as you want to be to your sister. See, if you give too much teeth to a man, and you ain’t biting him, he takes that serious. ‘Hey, baby, hey you know what I’m saying. You know what I’m saying.’ Be kind. Be loving and when you see this Christmas pass and you come back, and you get the knowledge of where that all started. Then you won’t feel bad not participating. But this year as you’re gaining greater knowledge, it’s expected that you act wiser.
“You do not need a Christmas tree in your house. That’s pagan practice. ⠀
Leave the mythical Santa at the North Pole or wherever the hell he is. And don’t you ever again spend money on your children and give the credit to a mythical Caucasian and make your children think that they got to continue to look at White people to get things you give them with your hard sweat and blood. “~The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan on Instagram⠀

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE BENEFICENT, THE MERCIFUL.
I was weighing very carefully the time, the government of America and what America, I believe, is planning against the government and people of Iran.We have never been closer to war as we are right now. For the last 20 or more years, out of the Pentagon, plans were developed to overthrow seven Muslim nations in five years. The Generals that were a part of that plan, one of them, exposed what was in a memo that he gained from Paul Wolfowitz, one of the Neo-Conservatives, a Zionist, who has always felt that you can’t make peace with Iran because you cannot change Iran’s thinking. So, Iran must be destroyed.
They never sleep. They’re working in Iran as we are speaking developing an internal enemy. It was the same with Muammar Gadhafi. The CIA was working in Libya with disaffected Libyans from Benghazi. When America would attack, they wanted Egypt to attack Libya from the East and the assets of the CIA inside Libya would rise and kill Gadhafi and others.
They’ve all but succeeded in overthrowing with the Arab Spring many Islamic regimes that they disliked. A big surprise came in Egypt when Mohamed Morsi of the Islamic Brotherhood became president. Within a short time, America through their assets in Egypt, organized a coup against the legitimately elected president of Egypt.
My dear brothers and sisters, I am so full because I have been blessed by God to know what they’re planning against Iran. Not that you don’t know it because you do, but I don’t know whether we are taking the proper steps to block their evil plans. So here we are. I warned Brother Gadhafi that they were going to bomb Libya, the airfield, the water project. And, within days they bombed.
Right now President Trump cannot chastise Muhammad Bin Salman of Saudi Arabia for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi because they’ve made a tremendous investment in the Saudi government in the friendship of Muhammad Bin Salman with Jerad Kushner, the son-in-law of President Trump. Our president called Saudi King Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud and asked him to gather all the Sunni nations in Riyadh and invite him. And when Mr. Trump came to Riyadh, you listened. I’m sure you and the Supreme Leader listened very carefully. Mr. Trump’s aim was to extract from the Sunni nations pledges to buy the latest weaponry of America.
Then he proceeded to try to unite the Sunni nations and direct their anger at the Shi’ite Muslims. With all humility, we have allowed the division that took place at the deathbed of the Prophet to last for 1,400 years with no resolution of that which happened that split Sunni and Shi’ite Muslims. Allah says in the Qur’an that we did not become divided until knowledge came to us, splitting up our religion into sects and parties; each party rejoicing in their part due to envy. If envy is at the root of something, the root is rotten, so the tree and its branches will not bear the fruit that Allah desires.
So, your excellency, this is why I came because it is important that we are guided correctly in this hour, lest the Middle East will be the trigger of World War III where no nation will survive intact. I will close by saying, the Mahdi, to whom praise is due forever, it is written that He would set down every tyrant and set justice in the earth. Righteousness and wickedness cannot coexist, and each nation that is Islamic has to reconcile its own deviation from the Qur’an. We cannot allow politicians who are trying to win friendship with Shaitan to lead our nations because they can’t speak straight words because they want to compromise. You cannot compromise justice. You cannot compromise truth. You cannot compromise righteousness. [READ MORE]
Minister Louis Farrakhan
NATIONAL REPRESENTATIVE OF THE HONORABLE ELIJAH MUHAMMAD AND THE NATION OF ISLAM
IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE BENEFICENT, THE MERCIFUL.
Statement from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
regarding his trip to Iran and message to Iran and America
[Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, a U.S.-based religious movement, recently traveled to Iran and spoke to Iranian students and others. Below is a statement he issued regarding that trip and correcting false and inflammatory media reports.]
TEHRAN, Iran – I am not and have never been an enemy to America, nor the people of America. However, I love America enough to speak unpleasant truths that are in the best interests of an erring nation that perhaps she may change her conduct and course. I have an abiding love for the right to free speech, the right to a free press and the right every human being has to hear the truth. It is only truth spoken in season that can bring us what we desire of freedom, justice, equality and, ultimately, peace.
I was invited to Tehran University to speak to students and engage in a dialogue with Iranian students. I was also invited to meet with other members of Iranian society for discussions about their concerns for their nation and concerns about world affairs, in particular the sanctions placed on Iran by President Donald Trump and his advisors.
I never led a chant that called for the death of America or Israel, contrary to misreporting in U.S., British and Jewish publications and the intentional, malicious and false reinterpretation of my words. There is nothing more important than truth today. The truth of anyone and anything is enough to condemn any individual or institution. But to make media mischief by altering my words from their places is a betrayal of the right to free speech, the blessing of a free press and a violation of the people’s right to know. It is wrong and shameful that journalists and news organizations that should seek the truth would traffic in such lies.
I never led a chant calling for death to America. To say otherwise is a blatant falsehood and an attempt to paint me as an enemy in a very dangerous time as tension rises between America and Iran and nations around the earth reject unjust sanctions and heavy-handed U.S. foreign policy. I asked a question about how to pronounce the chant in Farsi during my meeting with Iranian students and an examination of the video shows just that. My point was to engage students in a talk about what gives a nation perpetuity versus that which undermines and destroys a nation. Evil, falsehood and violation of divine law doom nations to destruction, and the holy books of the world’s three greatest monotheistic religions warn us of such. So if Iran is moving as a nation to obey God’s law, to respect and educate women and to pursue righteousness, she is on a right course. And, if America has violated the principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for the indigenous people and destroyed them, and if she has done the same for the Black and the Poor, America has not only violated Constitutional principles, she has disobeyed divine law and stands to be judged by God for her wrongdoing. And, American democracy, unfortunately, has always leaned toward and protected the interests of the White, the Rich and the Powerful.
So to stand with Iran against unjust sanctions and mass punishment is to stand in the proper place. To warn America that these sanctions—which have been rejected by the European Union, France, Britain, Germany, Russia, China and other countries—are wrong is to stand in the proper place. I am trying to help America face the error of her ways and see the enmity she is sparking across the globe alongside a growing loss of friendship. This is not good for America, nor the world and only marches us steadily to acrimony, conflict and the final war of Armageddon spoken of in the bible. America can no longer act unilaterally in the world and be successful. Success can only come from righting old wrongs and purposing just and progressive policies.
Some 40 years ago, Iranian students threw off the yoke of American domination through the overthrow of the Shah of Iran, a brutal dictator and tool of U.S. foreign policy. While the Iranians have problems to solve, as do every nation and people on earth, they are a proud and independent people. They do not wish to be under the thumb of America again. As I said several times in Tehran, the U.S. sanctions are a mistake. And, while dialogue should be a good thing, the U.S. has a history of lying and breaking her commitments. To survive, America must turn away from yesterday’s policies, go forward in a new spirit and seek a new direction.
America will never be undone by the angry chants of Iranians, or others who suffer under U.S. foreign policy. No foreign enemy will destroy America, but she faces divine judgment from God Himself. She faces an internal rot with her huge fiscal deficits, her fractured political system, her ugly political and public discourse, her frayed social networks, her rejection of spiritual values and a penchant for violence and mass shootings. She is a troubled nation. Her leadership is spiritually blind to the hour at hand and it appears as though they have the hearts of beasts.
Despite U.S. efforts to foment disunity and rebellion inside of Iran, the Iranian people may not be as gullible as America believes. Iranians have the right to resolve their own problems without outside interference, just as the U.S. has claimed its right to conduct elections free of Russian influence. Self-determination is a right of every nation.
The Muslim World needs unity and must find the path to reconciliation despite efforts to pit Muslims against one another. Satan seeks to divide Muslims and wants them to kill each other, while Allah God tells us in the Quran to be united.
It is also shameful that my visit to Iran was used by political hucksters and cynics to try to affect the recent political elections in the United States. The demonization of Louis Farrakhan will not solve serious U.S. problems and will not heal serious political and social divisions. So despite Donald Trump Jr.’s call for Democrats to disavow me and unjust criticism of me from some Democrats who reject me based on lies and political expediency, America needs a clear warner, who will speak the truth without compromise and without fearing the censure of any censurer. I am neither Right, Left nor Center. I stand on the side of Truth and wherever the Truth may be found. No political party or political leader has an exclusive lock on the Truth. They should stand for Truth whatever the Truth brings. Standing on truth is what will bring America perpetuity and if she refuses to change, she is destined for days of suffering and sorrow.
When God raises a Warner in a powerful nation, it is a blessing and a mercy. But rarely do the powerful rulers of such nations see the Warner or the Warning as valuable until it is too late. May Allah bless the powerful ones in America and those who control America to heed this warning. Medicine often has a slightly bitter taste but when taken in the proper dosage medicine can bring about a healing. The United States, a sin-sick nation, needs a healing and Allah God is offering a healing today provided that His guidance is followed and his Warner is heard.
The choice, however, remains with the American people and those who are in leadership. May Allah God bless this people and nation to make the proper choice.
