CHICAGO (Source: FinalCall.com)—Saviours’ Day, the annual Nation of Islam celebration and crowning event of Black History Month, is coming back to where it all started for the groundbreaking Islamic movement—Detroit!
Thousands of followers of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad under the leadership of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and their supporters, visitors and guests from the U.S. and abroad will convene Feb. 21-23 for a full weekend of workshops and activities for all ages at the TCF Center located at 1 Washington Blvd. in Detroit.
The highlight of the weekend will be the keynote message of instruction, divine guidance and warning by Min. Farrakhan on Sunday, Feb. 23 at the TCF Center. Doors open at 12 p.m. EDT and the program will be broadcast live via internet at NOI.org starting at 2 p. m. EDT. Min. Farrakhan’s message is titled, “The Unraveling of a Great Nation.”
Saviours’ Day is the commemoration of the birth of Master W. Fard Muhammad, the Messiah of the Christians, Mahdi of the Muslims and teacher of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He was born February 26, 1877 in the Holy City of Mecca in Arabia and traveled to America in search of the Black man and woman of America to teach and resurrect them from a “dead” state caused by over 400 years of systematic oppression, slavery and brutal mistreatment.
Detroit is where Master Fard Muhammad and the Hon. Elijah Muhammad first met in the early 1930s and where the first temple—as it was called then—of the Nation of Islam was established.
The last two years Saviours’ Day was held in Chicago, where Nation of Islam headquarters is located. There is tremendous anticipation and excitement that the convention this year is returning to the city of its birth as the global movement approaches 90 years since its founding and the coming of Master W. Fard Muhammad. (FULL ARTICLE)
