Anyone who keeps saying young people don’t want to listen, must be a person who doesn’t know how to connect to them and exerting too much negative energy condemning them. While we’re in the streets bringing knowledge, wisdom and understanding from The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, we have no problems at all getting the young gods to stop and listen. In fact, many of them gravitate to us before we say anything. We’re never condemning them, only encouraging and uplifting. We do a lot of listening. The Brother in this picture, along with his friend, told us they won’t open their door for other religious groups but when they looked through the window and saw it was us, they happily opened the door. It was a fruitful dialogue and next time they want us to bring a bean pie! All Praise is Due to Allah!! Nothing like being in the streets. #TruthTrafficking #Farrakhan #HopeDealers [📸: @lintonmuhammad]
Fruit of Islam
It’s moments like this that keep the Nation of Islam brothers fueled to stay in the streets!! We never go into the trenches of the ‘hood with a judgmental mindset, but with a heart of love for our people. During Friday’s #TruthTrafficking door-to-door push in the Southeast Houston community, we walked up on these two young warriors engaging in mental warfare. Not a dice game, but a game of CHESS.
They are among the countless mighty brothers we’ve been blessed to dialogue with on a weekly basis. When they see us there is nothing but a mutual display of respect, love and brotherhood. Our track record with them has been nothing but encouragement.
This time, when we walked up on them, we noticed how LASER FOCUSED they were on their chess match so we didn’t even want to interrupt them. I had to capture this because it is a testament to us striving to follow the instructions of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan to make our communities a decent and safe place to live.
This is the power of The Teachings of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad when we as the Fruit of Islam take the message to the streets. We’ve witnessed a major shift in the consciousness of this community by striving to be consistent servants. We’ve witnessed more conscious peaceful sidewalk cyphers and less weed sessions. We’ve witnessed more building and less beefing. We’ve witnessed more display of family and less feuds. We’ve witnessed more plans of life visions and less violence.
The resurrection work is far from over and slowing down is not an option. All Praise is Due to ALLAH! #TruthTrafficking #OurWorkIsInTheSTREETS #Chess
TRUTH TRAFFICKING ‼️ Another blessed and highly spirited push in the Southeast Houston streets alongside my Fruit of Islam brothers Linton Muhammad, Chad Muhammad and Don Muhammad. The energy of the people was contagious! The resurrection work is #The1stWork. That’s the F.O.I. Street Life.
Moments like this is why I love going out every week into the Southeast Houston streets with my Fruit of Islam brothers. This is one of the most energetic young gods we’ve met on the block. Every time we’ve seen him, like others, we dropped some jewels on him from the wisdom of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. In some of his darkest moments, he’s come to us for a ray of hope…
He walked up to me on Friday with a beaming smile and said, “Aye, I’ve been listening to my man on YouTube!!” I said, “Who is that?” He said, “THE MINISTER!” as he pointed to the picture of Minister Farrakhan on the back of The Final Call Newspaper I was holding.
He testified of how listening to Minister Farrakhan’s messages has helped to change his life and that things are a lot better in his life than the last time we saw him. All Praise is Due to Allah!! Inspiration is contagious!!! Let’s keep spreading it!! #NationOfIslam #Hope #HopeDealers #Farrakhan #Success
‼️TRUTH TRAFFICKING ‼️ Today’s weather forecast had plenty of rain, but Allah had other plans for us! While it stormed in many parts of the city, we were blessed to have sunshine and a cool overcast as we hit the street blocks and went door-to-door in the Southeast Houston area. The spirit was high and the conversations with the people were inspiring! We get blessed immensely by striving to stay consistent in these streets. Salute to me Fruit of Islam brothers Linton Muhammad and Chad Muhammad . What a blessing! All Praise is Due to Allah! #NationOfIslam #Farrakhan
❗️MAKING WORD BOND❗️We must give a major shoutout to Jermaine Gotti; recording artist, producer, publisher and owner of 21st Street Studios. He’s also the cousin of Brother Linton muhammad. In support of the “Make Our Community A Decent Place To Live” Day we hosted last month at King’s Row Apartments, he gave away a free 2 hour studio session to one of the young and hungry artists from Sunnyside that Brother Linton told him about. Last week it happened and it was awesome to witness.
We’ve been consistently building with Jermaine in the Southeast streets for months now and built a bond with him. So he and the “Greedy 1224” squad were chosen to experience being in a high-powered studio like this for the first time.
JGotti opened by sharing jewels with them from his experience in the music industry. Then these young gods went to work with engineer Dre. They went in with focus; they didn’t play around with the time. And they ended up doing two songs. Dre expressed how impressed he was with how much they got done in a short amount of time. They all expressed gratitude for this entire experience and on the ride back home, one of them said, “It feels good to have someone show us love like this. We’ll never forget this.”
Thank you JGotti for giving back in a major way. This generation is not to be slept on. ??
❗️TESTIMONY ❗️I thank Allah I was blessed to capture this moment today as we went door-to-door in the Southeast Houston community. This beautiful elder of the community is always so elated to see us. When we first knocked on her door sometime last year, she refused to even talk to us. But we kept on knocking on her door every week just to let her know we wanted to sincerely just check up on her. After awhile, she started regularly opening her door, talking to us and reading The Final Call Newspaper.
One day she let us know she wanted to reduce the overwhelming amount of cigarettes she smokes and improve her overall health. We kept sharing words with her from The Teachings of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad on “How To Eat To Live” along with the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s guidance on Building The Will. She is usually inside her home but today, to our surprise, she was outside, high-stepping like a young woman and looking vibrant as ever! She said, “I’m eating better, smoking way less and feeling way better.” Y’all know we cheer her on and applauded her progress!!
All Praise is Due to Allah!! Moments like this is what fuels us to stay in these streets to help our people however we can. #Inspire #Love #NationOfIslam
The excitement from “Make Our Community A Decent Place To Live” Day is still high, and we have video footage produced by Shareef Shabazz that includes words and instructions from The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan as well as testimonies from the residents of Kings Row Apartments. Be inspired. Be the change!
Watch the footage below from “Make Our Community A Decent Place To Live” Day at Kings Row Apartments produced by Ebony S. Muhammad of Hurt2Healing Magazine!!! The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan teaches that this generation is the BEST and the GREASTEST we’ve ever produced. Salute to the Fruit Of Islam brothers, the MGT-GCC, supporters and sponsors for making this day possible!
For the past several months, we’ve been blessed to sit down and share The Teachings of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad with this brother in one of the apartment complexes we go door-to-door in. When we first met him, he wasn’t interested in hearing what we had to say at all but we politely thanked him and said, “God bless.” The next time he decided to give us a chance and when we sat down he was surrounded by multiple liquor bottles and about six packs of cigarettes. We care nothing about that. We love our people.
Since then, every week he’s been reading the @finalcallnewspaper and eager to talk with us when he sees us. Today, when we saw him he didn’t have any liquor bottles around him and only one cigarette behind his ear. We told him we were proud of him and with a smile he said, “I’ve been trying real hard to master all of that.” I said, “You DOING IT!” …. Praise be to Allah!!! This is why we don’t judge our people, just uplift them!! We applaud their progress, no matte how small it may seem, because we all have more room for improvement. #NationOfIslam #TheFinalCall #TruthTrafficking [?: @lintonmuhammad]
