As-Salaam Alaikum! Ramadan Mubarak!
As a striving Fruit of Islam soldier in the ranks of the greatest brotherhood on the planet, it’s a blessing to strive to stay consistently focused on The Mission, which is the mental and spiritual resurrection of our people. Even during this blessed Ramadan fasting season of intense heat in Houston, I’m not interested in making excuses or getting distracted by frivolous things.
Like other F.O.I. soldiers, I’m hungry for and more passionate about being in the streets to deliver a Word from The Teachings of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad as Exemplified by The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. Real men do not have to be told what to do, their Mission and Love for that mission calls them to do it. So a dry mouth is nothing compared to the dry bones in the valley (‘hoods) awaiting us to come and deliver a Word that they’re thirsting for. A growling stomach is nothing compared to the young gods in the streets who are hungering for purpose and direction. A little heat is nothing compared to the hellish condition our community is in that can be transformed by The Word that transformed our lives.
May Allah bless all of my Fruit of Islam brothers to stay focused on bigger picture, stay hungry/passionate about The Mission and not allow ourselves to get caught up in petty things that have no bearing on The 1st Work: The Resurrection. I am a witness that the more we serve others, the more blessed we are. This is not a job, it’s a labor of love. With that being said: I’m looking forward to getting in these streets with my F.O.I. Brothers! Let’s go! #FruitOfIslam #NationOfIslam #Farrakhan [📸 @lintonmuhammad]
