(Source: FinalCall.com) All throughout the history of the Black experience in America, various Black leaders have been dubbed or identified as “Black Moses.” Harriett Tubman and Marcus Garvey are just two who were considered to be “Black Moses.”
That a Black leader would be designated as Black Moses is significant. And it powerfully suggests that if the suffering of Black people in America gave birth to leaders who fit the description of Moses, one day our suffering would give birth to leaders who fit the description of Jesus.
From my study, both the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan fit the description of Jesus. One only need examine their teachings, their beneficial impact on Black people and their suffering as a result of the truth that they have taught to understand why I have drawn this conclusion.
Jesus’ love of God and righteousness made him bold and courageous. In Jesus’ life and work we see how “love removes fear.” And the New Testament records that his ministry became a problem for Jewish leaders whose corrupt practices enslaved the poor; Jesus challenged them and they opposed him.
So the Jesus Model of Leadership, among Black people in America, is recognized when we see Black leaders facing the powerful opposition of America’s Jewish leaders. The Jesus model is characterized in loving and kind leadership; the Jesus styled leader is gentle and merciful in his interactions with the poor; yet he is simultaneously a man known for a bold and courageous ministry that speaks truth to power. And these are characteristics of the life and work of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.

For instance, as a beautiful photo of Minister Farrakhan and Sen. Barack Obama was made public for the first time in over 12 years, Jewish leaders like Alan Dershowitz and Jonathan Greenblatt have reacted negatively. Greenblatt, the current leader of the ADL (Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith) has called for former President Obama to repudiate Minister Farrakhan. In a Twitter post he wrote:
|Attorney Alan Dershowitz Photo: AP Photo/Frank Franklin II|
“In Israel catching up on news about 2005 photo of Obama & Farrakhan. Over his career, @barackobama has denounced the bigotry of Farrakhan. Time to do so again. Leaders always should make sure that there’s no doubt: America is no place for those who advocate #antisemitism or hate.”
Similarly an ADL memo from 1994 entitled the “Legitimation of Louis Farrakhan” wrote that:
“Minister Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI)… has recently attained a new level of acceptance among certain mainstream Black organizations and leaders. His ‘legitimation’ has been reflected most notably by his participation last summer in the Parliament of the World’s Religions, his obtaining federal funds for NOI’s anti-AIDS efforts and the security services it has been providing at several federal housing projects, and his warm reception at the annual legislative meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) last fall.”
The memo’s author Steven Freeman declared:
“ADL is not going to make Farrakhan go away. What we can and should do is impose an obligation on those who deal with him, or, as in the case of universities, give him a platform.”
Freeman’s recommendation that the ADL “impose an obligation” on all who accept the Minister is like the coded language seen in movies like “The Godfather,” when the Godfather, portrayed by Marlon Brando, says, “make him an offer he can’t refuse.”
Freeman’s coded language of retaliation for those who refuse repudiation of the Minister is the modern equivalent of what we read of in the New Testament book of John. The book of John reveals to us that not only had the Jewish leaders planned to crucify Jesus; they had also planned to crucify Lazarus.
“When all the people heard of Jesus’ arrival, they flocked to see him and also to see Lazarus, the man Jesus had raised from the dead. Then the chief priests decided to kill Lazarus, too, for it was because of him that many of the people had deserted themand believed in Jesus.” –John 12: 9-11
From the perspective of the Jewish leaders who opposed Jesus, Lazarus had produced the “legitimation” of Jesus and was causing many others to believe in Jesus. In the modern era persons such as Rev. Jesse L. Jackson Sr.; actor Bruce Willis; Mayor Ed Rendell; Congressman Keith Ellison; Congressman John Conyers; and presidential candidate Barack H. Obama are just a few famous individuals who Jewish leaders have demanded that they repudiate Minister Farrakhan.
Another parallel from Jesus’ Jewish controversy to Minister Farrakhan’s Jewish controversy is to compare the scripture found in John 7:13 to the comments of journalist William Raspberry. From the Book of John, we read:
“But no one had the courage to speak favorably about him in public, for they were afraid of getting in trouble with the Jewish leaders.”
From Journalist William Raspberry,The Washington Post, March 2, 1990, we read:
“Farrakhan says what so many black people believe but have learned not to say in public: for instance, that Jews wield tremendous influence in the news and entertainment media. That doesn’t mean that most blacks accept Farrakhan’s notion of a small Jewish cabal that meets in Hollywood or in a Park Avenue apartment to decide which ideas and trends are to be foisted off on the public. But few of us doubt the disproportionate influence of Jews—for good or ill—on what we see on television or in the movies. Nor do blacks doubt the disproportionate influence of Jews on American foreign policy, particularly with regard to political and economic support of Israel. But we also know that to say these things is to be accused of antisemitism. That’s why blacks can cheer when Farrakhan says them, even in gross overstatement.”
Another parallel is found in John 7:1 wherein we find the following:
“After this, Jesus traveled throughout Galilee. He did not want to travel in Judea, because the Jews there were trying to kill Him.”
Compare this to Professor Mattias Gardell, in his book“In The Name of Elijah Muhammad Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam,” who wrote of Jewish efforts to kill Minister Farrakhan:
“Pickets with Jews shouting ‘Who do we want? Farrakhan! How do we want him? Dead!’ are far from unusual and the Jewish Defense Organization had Farrakhan on top of the death list found by police investigating a bombing of Arab-American facilities. The Jewish Defense League has staged at least one ‘Death to Farrakhan’ march, on Saviours’ Day, October 7, 1985.”
In another place in the book of John we read:
“Nevertheless, many of the leaders believed in Him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue.” (John 12:42)
Compare this to the history of Minister Farrakhan being loved and lauded by many leaders in various fields; yet many of these leaders become quiet when the Minister is condemned by Jewish leaders. Rapper Nas, in an interview with The Final Call newspaper, spoke on this phenomenon when he said:
“It’s like everybody’s scared to speak out about what’s in their heart, just because they’re scared of who is going to come down on them. They’re scared they’re going to get ‘blacklisted.’ They’re going to get all their endorsements taken away from them. They’re scared that they can’t feed their families.”
Yet despite all of this opposition and harassment of his supporters and admirers the Minister continues to be strong, courageous and mighty! As former ADL director Abraham Foxman,in April 2013 issue of Ha’aertz magazine, said of the Minister, he really is the last man standing. Foxman noted:
“The only leadership that now exists in that community—the African American community—is Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan can assemble 20,000 people several times a year…”
The Minister’s strength and widespread appeal is the result of his anointing. So just as the Jewish leaders in the New Testament falsely attributed Jesus’ fame to Lazarus; the modern Jewish leaders falsely attribute Minister Farrakhan’s “legitimation” to Black celebrities and politicians. Truth be told, it is not Minister Farrakhan who is the net beneficiary of his interaction with famous folk. It is quite the opposite.
Yes, we have had “Black Moses,” but we now in the life, work and ministry of Minister Farrakhan we can behold “Black Jesus.” The dilemma now before Black America is a question of whether or not we are going to stand by and allow the modern Jewish leaders to crucify a man who has always defended the Black community, even when it has been unpopular? Theology Professor Andre C. Willis is spot on when he says of the Minister:
“There is simply no Black person in the world that has—over so many years—been as consistent, as unrestricted, and as forthright in defending the humanity of Black people throughout the world against its attackers.”
Who then among us will defend Minister Farrakhan? Or will we once again allow a good man to be crucified?

Whose independence? Since 1776 you, Black man, have been worshipping the 4th of July along with the real author of the 4th of July … (the White man) as a day of Independence for themselves.
It is the White slave-master and his children who enjoy setting forth the 4th of July as a day of rejoicing over achieving this country’s Independence from any other foreign source.
Now, the history of the 4th of July shows that it is the Independence Day of the American White man. They wrote the Declaration of Independence for themselves. The White man did not put anything in the Declaration of Independence for the benefit of the Black Man, who was the servitude-slave of the White man at that time.
The joy which the Black slave experienced on these holidays of the White man was due to the Black man getting rest from his labor and the days which the White man had set aside for celebration. That is all the Black slave was rejoicing over … that he did not have to work that day.
But, you are free now; and you do not need this for an excuse for your worship of the 4th of July. There is no further need for us to worship the gaining of the White man’s independence. Let us take a look again at our own Black independence and how it came on this same day of the 4th of July … at the Coming of Allah (God) Who came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are due forever, on July 4, 1930.
The significance of His coming to us, on the Independence Day of the White man, is very great. It is their day of great rejoicing. As with former peoples and their governments, their destruction took place when they were at the height of their rejoicing.
Nebuchadnezzar, according to the Bible history of him (Dan. Ch. 4), was walking around in his palace and proudly looking around and admiring the skill of the work he had set up and said, “has not all this my hand wrought?” The Bible teaches us that while the words were in his mouth, the end came. Allah (God) changed his mind and heart from that of a civilized man to the mind and heart of a beast. He had the brain reactions of a wild beast and he was cast out among the dumb brutes.
What does that signify? It gives us a gleaning into the history of the White man and his being cast out of the society of the Muslims six thousand years ago … after he was made and then started trouble among the people of righteousness.
Trouble-making caused the White man his exile into the hills and cave-sides of West Asia, as Europe was called at that time, so Allah (God) taught me. Its name was changed to Europe after the White man was cast into that area. Europe means a place where people are bound in, to keep them out of the society of the righteous.
Moses made (White man) as independent race, through the guidance which Allah (God) gave Moses, to guide the White man out of his savage cave life, and put him on the road of conquest of the Black man.
For four hundred years the White man swallowed us, (the Black man of America) up. He did not put us in a hole of the earth but he swallowed us up by keeping anything like wisdom from coming to us. He set a bound against our own Black people visiting us in order to prevent them from teaching us anything other than what the White man was teaching our Black slave-fathers.
This caged us in, and made just as secure a cage as the literal cage of Europe that the Arab people put the White man in six thousand years ago.
The 4th of July is the Day of rejoicing of the White man over his opponents, for the Western Hemisphere. He wrote his Constitution for his own White people…not for his Black slave.
Since this is his day which he set aside for himself, then what part, Black brother, do you have in this day? Your part is not mixed with his part in the way of his own White politics and physical independence.
But, as I called your attention to proud King Nebuchadnezzar’s history and what happened to him at the height of his kingdom, Allah (God) never destroyed a powerful people nor deprived them of self-independence when they were in trouble or when they were sick with grief. He made them to feel happy. He made them think that they would live forever.
So it was with the coming of Allah (God) in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are due forever, on His coming to us, on the 4th of July, 1930. His presence meant the destruction of the independence of the White race and especially, America … wover the Black man.
Allah (God) visited the Black slave, for he is more in need of help to enjoy freedom of self.
Since Allah (God) came for the purpose of bringing selfindependence to the Black slave, then His going forth is with justice (Bible Rev. 19:11). To show Allah’s (God’s) greatness and power over the slave-master and his people, now Allah (God) attacks them at the height of their civilization and at the greatness of their power and strength, on the 4th of July … while they worship their greatness of their accomplishment; and the Black slave is sitting at his feet. As it was with Nebuchadnezzar and as it was with Pharaoh, the same is being repeated today.
This is the significance of Allah’s (God’s) coming on the 4th of July. For four hundred years we have been suffering under the pangs of servitude-slavery and at the relentlessly merciless hands of the White slavemaster over us.
Allah (God) came to give justice and freedom to us and to make us equal members in the society of the new powerful, strong, and wise people of the earth.
Ever since that day, the 4th of July, 1930, has meant the doom of American domination over the Black man of America and the Black people of the earth. Ever since that day, America has been falling.
America’s fall is not imminent … it is now going on. America refused to break her fall when she could have broken her fall, as the Bible teaches us. Babylon could have been healed, but she was not (Je. 51:9). She did not do anything to warrant such forgiveness.
America has been offered the chance for forgiveness, but she refused to accept it, for she never offered to do anything favorable toward her Black slave, that would make them free of her power to rule them.
Black slaves went to their death, fighting the enemy of the White slavemaster, to help America to maintain her independence against foreign dominance. The Black slave was not given anything in exchange for his sacrifice.
When a dog hunts for a hunter, the hunter (master) will sometimes share a part of the game with the dog. The Black slave has helped his master to overcome and to put other peoples under the control of his White slave-master. The Black slave has fought, bled and died around the earth, to help the White slave-master to conquer those whom the master called his enemies.
We helped the White man to conquer Cuba and to overcome and subdue Mexico and the Philippine Islands and other places around the earth, and also Japan. How many lives did the Black man lose in the Pacific while helping the White man to conquer the people of Japan who are the brown, half-brother of the Black man? The Brown race and the Yellow race are the half-brother of the Black man.
Whose Independence? Now the White man and the Black man are both free on this day. The coming of Allah (God) on this day means the freedom of the Black man too. The clear significance of Allah’s (God’s) coming on this day shows the great wisdom of Allah (God).
Everywhere the White man may be, even in Europe, the earth belongs to the Black man.
Let us rejoice on this day, the 4th of July, in the coming of Allah (God) Who came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad to Whom praises are due forever and give thanks to Him. Let us enjoy the independence he brought to us and the freedom, justice and equality.
He brought these things to us not by killing off the red Indian nor any original settlers. Justice and righteousness are the ammunition used by Allah (God).
(Excerpt from “The Fall of America,” 1973.)
(via FinalCall.com) Facebook, the largest and most powerful conveyor of information in the world, recently ruled that “doctored” videos depicting false information can remain on their social media platform, but truthful information as depicted by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan will not be permitted and his voice would be subject to a lifetime ban from Facebook.
A company spokesperson stipulated May 22 that information posted on Facebook does not have to be true.
In other words, one can blatantly lie on Facebook and not have to be punished, but truth telling is not permitted.
Facebook’s double standards are astonishing. But what’s behind what I call the Facebook Farrakhan Ban? From at least 1984 and generally since the 1930s, certain Jewish groups have sought to silence the voice of the Nation of Islam.
No Black movement seeking freedom, justice and equality has had the impact of the NOI, and a concerted effort has been instituted to quell the voice and stymie the impact of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali (see “Muhammad Ali’s Forgotten Legacy of Anti-Semitism”), and now Minister Farrakhan.
The voice of Minister Farrakhan is the most potent and iconic in America. He has a global following and his actions have stimulated massive changes in Black America. He has addressed over four million people in four massive marches in Washington, D.C.; not to mention speaking before 20 million live and 60 million on television in Iran. No other American can make that claim. He has been seen by multi-millions more on the Internet, on television and the radio, and in newsprint. His power and influence have had a global impact over the past 60 years. This kind of influence has disturbed some in the Jewish community, because unlike other “Black Leaders” they have not been able to silence his voice or negate his impact in the Black community, in the Islamic world, in Africa, or among progressive Whites. Notwithstanding the fact that the Zionists control the mass media, their efforts to minimize Minister Farrakhan’s influence have failed miserably.
The Facebook ban on Farrakhan is analogous to the infamous Cointelpro initiative of the federal government and the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith. This program was a co-initiative of the FBI and the ADL. Both groups spied on the NOI and jointly sought to identify a “Black Messiah” who would electrify and unify the Black masses. Martin Luther King never brought millions of Black people together the way Farrakhan has, Kwame Toure (Stokely Carmichael) was never able to accomplish what the Minister has, the Civil Rights Movement never produced the likes of Farrakhan, and the Black Christian leadership could not collectively stimulate the sleeping Black masses the way Minister Farrakhan has. Add to this scenario the fact that the Jewish community, through its representatives in the 12 major Jewish organizations, has sought to control the destiny of Black America for over 100 years.
For example: According to The Ugly Truth About the ADL by the Editors of the Executive Intelligence Review, B’nai B’rith was a major proponent of slavery in America. The authors conclude “B’nai B’rith has been from their inception, arms of the British secret intelligence agencies and secret societies that are sworn enemies of the United States. The B’nai B’rith and the ADL have used their nominal Jewishness to conceal their actual allegiance and agenda.” Moreover, the “early history of B’nai B’rith is part of one of the ugliest chapters in the British-led Confederate secessionist insurrection against the Union in the 19th century. The ADL is more closely aligned with the racist Ku Klux Klan than with Judaism, more closely aligned with the murderous Medellin Cocaine Cartel than with any civic group.” These quotes were written in 1993 and the authors have never been sued for libel.
As for slavery, in Charleston, S.C., for example, many members of B’nai B’rith became wealthy in the cotton and slave trade. In addition, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us that, “The 1914 war, which involved all of the White race, crushed the power of Turkey in Europe and pushed that power back across the Bosporus (or pushed Islam out of Europe as nearly as possible).” The power behind the fall of the Ottoman Empire that broke the power of Islam were the crypto-Jews. Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the Republic of Turkey and its first president, is believed by some to be Jewish. So too was Ishmail Enver Pasha, the leader of the Young Turk Revolution, and the head of the Ottoman Empire in the Balkan Wars and in World War I. Little known is the fact that B’nai B’rith played a central role in the Russian Revolution that brought the Bolsheviks (communists) to power in 1917 (see Mark Weber, “The Jewish Role in the Bolshevik Revolution and Russia’s Early Soviet Regime.)”
Therefore, not only did the Jews bring down the Ottoman Empire and the Russian Empire through the use of agent provocateurs and subterfuge but they sought to do the same in the Nation of Islam. The subterfuge used to bring down the Ottoman Empire, Russia and others is now being applied domestically to compromise the NOI. In 1990 it was discovered that the ADL had paid agents, spies to infiltrate the NOI. Information obtained from these spy activities were sold to the apartheid Government of South Africa. These spy activities were conducted in major cities throughout the United States.
Therefore, there is no question that our Jewish detractors are hell bent in trying to do to the NOI what they have been successful in doing on an international basis, bring down the Government of the Nation of Islam. (See the video on Youtube, “The FBI Manufactured Plot to Kill Farrakhan and Split Black America”; also read the article “The FBI-Manufactured Plot to Kill Farrakhan” in The Final Call on March 4, 1997). Some have speculated that the FBI learned many of its dirty tricks from the ADL, and the ADL has been the hidden hand operating behind the scenes. (See Dope, Inc. and the research written by the Editors of the Executive Intelligence Review.) Also see “The Israel Security Forces Are Training American Cops Despite History of Rights Abuses” from The Intercept.
Hence, the tactic of using Facebook to ban Minister Farrakhan is only one step in their multitiered strategy to attempt to destroy the Nation. However, their tactics are back firing. In the “Supreme Wisdom” lessons given to all members of the Nation of Islam to study we learn that “Mr. Muhammad cracked one Atom into ten million parts.” Min. Farrakhan is like that atom that has been cracked by the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Now Min. Farrakhan is being cracked into 10 million parts, and his voice is having the impact of a nuclear bomb. Since the ban by Facebook his impact has grown exponentially. His supporters in the media, entertainment, the sports arena, and the religious community, and elsewhere, have joined forces to spread his message even to greater numbers of viewers.
Allah (God) says in the Holy Qur’an, “And (the Jews) planned and Allah (also) planned. And Allah is the best of planners.” (3:53)
Thank you Facebook for giving Allah (God) and His Messenger this opportunity to reach even greater multitudes who can benefit from the wisdom of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and a delegation from the Nation of Islam concluded Ramadan with an historic “Umrah,” or pilgrimage to Mecca, the holiest city in Islam, at the invitation of the King Salman of Saudi Arabia.
“Ramadan is the annual Muslim holy month of fasting and prayers which ended for many on June 4 with the sighting of the new moon. It is a very special time of year and celebrates the revelation of the Holy Qur’an given to Prophet Muhammad of Arabia (Peace Be Upon Him) 1,400 years ago.
To be in the birthplace of Islam, it is this city, that is at the root of the civilization on our planet. For us after 42 years, Brother (Abdul Akbar Muhammad) and myself coming back to what we call home, it is from this city that knowledge and wisdom of the original man first started, when this planet was found in this new orbit 66 trillion years ago according to the teachings of our great and masterful teacher the Honorable Elijah Muhammad,” Minister Farrakhan said via telephone on the Ramadan Prayerline June 4, from Mecca, Saudi Arabia, as thousands listened live from all around the world. The prayer line is an annual event sponsored by Muslims in the Nation of Islam, which features daily pre-dawn teleconference calls and speakers from different Islamic communities during Ramadan.
“For us, a delegation of 17 to start in Madinah, the city of the Prophet, at his masjid and to see how that masjid, that started with the hijra (flight of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, from Mecca to Madinah to escape religious persecution) as he set foot in Madinah and when he put his foot down, this is where his mosque would be, there was nothing there but stone at the time and now here we are, at the most beautiful city. In my life, this is the most beautiful city that I call home,” said Min. Farrakhan.
He added, “Though I was born in New York and raised in Boston, Mecca is our home and so we are back home and I don’t know of a better place to be during Ramadan and during the last 10 nights of Ramadan. We were in Madinah and now in Mecca. We spent Laylatul Qadar (the night the Qur’an was revealed), the Night of Power, in Mecca. That same night we made Umrah, they said that 2.5 million people were in Mecca. We were guests of the king. We were blessed in a most special way to make Umrah and run between the two hills (Safwa and Marwa).”
During Ramadan Minister Farrakhan said to his friend and longtime confidant Abdul Akbar Muhammad that he wanted to make Umrah during the last 10 days of the month. The significance of performing Umrah during Ramadan is that the reward is the same as if one performs Hajj, which is a visit to Mecca and the Kaaba, the Holy House of Islam, that every Muslim must perform in their lifetime if possible.
(via FinalCall.com)During the recent visit to Saudi Arabia, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and a Nation of Islam delegation visited Islamic sites and holy places. One of the places the delegation visited was the site of the Battle of Uhud, a battle of extreme importance to Islam as a victory turned to defeat when some of the Muslims disobeyed the Prophet’s command to hold certain strategic positions. Instead, they deserted their posts seeking the spoils of war. Victory turned to disaster and the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him, was wounded in that battle. While at the sacred place, Min. Farrakhan said a special prayer which is reprinted below.
In the Name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds,
The Beneficent, the Merciful,
Master of the day of Requital.
Thee do we serve and Thee do we beseech for help.
Guide us on the right path,
The path of those upon whom Thou hast bestowed favours,
Not those upon whom wrath is brought down, nor those who go astray.
O Allah, we thank you for allowing us the privilege to come to this Holy and Sacred Place to learn the lesson of history. We thank his royal highness, King Salman, for allowing us the privilege to be his guest during the Holy Month of Ramadan and to pray in the Prophet’s Mosque and we are on our way to Al-Haram in Mecca.
But O Allah, the height of the mountain where the rebellion took place is not equal to the height of the rebellion itself. For it is disobedience to Allah and His Messenger that brought about the loss in the midst of a victory and caused the Prophet himself to be wounded. What is the lesson?
The lesson it seems to me is that as long as our minds are on the spoils of war or on material possessions, we have a chance to lose the victory because obedience to Allah is better than sacrifice.
O Allah have mercy upon us in this time. For we, the Nation of Islam in America, are on the frontline fighting Shaitan (Satan) in government and in institutions. But grant us victory but when you give us the victory, be careful in victory because in the middle of victory is defeat if we are not mindful. So, when Allah’s help and victory comes, and we see men entering the religion of Allah in companies, celebrate the praise of our Lord and ask his protection. Because gloating over victory is not the way of Allah, be asking for protection from vanity and vain imaginations of victory.
Let us take the lesson of Uhud back to America for we are soldiers in the cause of Allah, and we are fighting for Islam and we will surely win. With Allah Our Saviour, the Universal King, we thank him for allowing us this privilege. And we say in our prayers, “Our prayer, our sacrifice, our life and our death is all for Allah, the Lord of the worlds.”
So, as we return to our place of battle, we await martyrdom to establish Islam in America and in the Western Hemisphere as Prophet Muhammad established Islam throughout the Old World. But he left the job of the New World to another people who would come up with faith in Allah and faith in him, and taking on the mind and the spirit of the Prophet. We will not leave the battlefield until the whole of the Western World says with us: Ashhadu anla e-laaha ill Allahu Wa Ashhadu anna Muhammadan abduhu wa rasullah. (There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger. Ameen. Allah-U-Akbar! (God is the Greatest!) Allah-U-Akbar! (God is the Greatest!) Allah-U-Akbar! (God is the Greatest!) Allah- U-Akbar! (God is the Greatest!)
All Praise is Due to Allah! WOW, my brother Eric Muhammad and the mighty students of his Islamic Sciences class at The Elevated Places TOTALLY surprised me today!! They invited me to the campus for a special book-signing for Volume 2 of “The Teachings 2.0: Twitter Sayings of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan”.
But I had no idea they would have me to do an in-depth one-on-one interview with the multi-talented star Sister Ayah on a wonderful set they created with a live audience!! They showed out!
I thoroughly enjoyed the dialogue and the entire time signing books and taking photos. They truly set the tone as I prepare, by Allah’s Grace, to hit the road for #TheTeachingsTour to spread this blessed book on behalf of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. THANK YOU FOR THE LOVE EP!!
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan speaking at Saviours Day 2019 in Chicago, IL.
During his February 17th Saviours’ Day address at the United Center in Chicago, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan presented the sword of authority given to him by the Yoruba King of Nigeria.
