(The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered a near five-hour presentation Feb. 27 as Saviours’ Day 2022 was commemorated in Chicago at Mosque Maryam and the National Center of the Nation of Islam. His subject was “The Swan Song.” Below are excerpts from this amazing address and part 4 of our continuing presentation of this incredible message.

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
I told our hosts that it cost us $110,000 out of our treasury to bring the team that we brought to Iran in 2018. Brother Leonard F. Muhammad, and my son, Mustapha, were with me in Iran. Student National Imam Sultan Rahman Muhammad was with me in Iran. Brother Nadir was with me. On the plane, I was in first class.
I did not go to Iran to spend their money, we spent ours. But I was nervous because I did not want to displease Allah and my Teacher. So, I was in my cubicle, on the plane, praying and crying. “Am I doing right, am I in the right place? Is this what you want me to do?”
It’s the kind of prayer I should have had before I got on the plane. But now I am on the plane, and I am crying and praying. Honest to God, I can’t tell you a voice spoke to me out of a cloud. But all of a sudden, a thought came to me: The God was saying, “No. You did the right thing. I will give you the message to give to them.” Notice the words. So, the brothers were talking to the scholars and people over there and they wanted to get a memorandum of agreement. I busted that up. “No, no, no. We don’t want that. I have a message to deliver,” I said.
I asked Imam Sultan Rahman Muhammad to give me the words that the Prophet sent to theKourosh of Persia to the Caesar in Rome, to the Negus of Abyssinia and to Egypt. He researched the words and he shared them with me, and I said thank you. When he gave them to me, the message really underneath the message was saying, “We are the People of the Mahdi.
He has come to Us. He is our Guide and when I told the Iranians what the Mahdi said about America being Number One on his list to be destroyed … the Power of the Mahdi. I ran it down to them and when I offered my life for what I said, they did not bother me. I flew back to America. I beat up Arab TV. They wanted me to say, “Marg bar America, Marg bar Israel (Death to America.
Death to Israel). I said, “that is your chant, that is not my chant.” They wanted me to say that because the media was telling the people, “Farrakhan is over in Iran.” What a hell of a story that would be if I am saying, “Death to America” in Iran. We met with the Ayatollah in the holy city of Qom, and we spoke to them again. And the Ayatollah just … well he cried.
My host said, “I do not believe that man that you are talking about is the Mahdi.”
I said, “I can understand that, you are just hearing it.” “But,” I said, “if a man came to you and you believe in the Mahdi and tells you that the Mahdi is his Teacher, his Guide and sent him and you do not check him out, you do not look behind him, you don’t study what he’s saying, then there is something wrong in you. You have a sickness that is stopping you. Because you do not believe that the Mahdi would come to some Black people in America.”
Now the world is in trouble. My secretary and others can tell you that I been wanting to deliver a message—and what part of it I have not said. I told you, “Do not take that vaccine.” Wait a minute. Before the vaccine was made, I warned Us in the Name of Allah that this was a death plot. And before I went there, I told you of a National Security memo by the former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger that they had to kill or cull two to three billion people from the earth, and Bill Gates and Melinda Gates.
The way to get rid of two to three billion people was to offer you a vaccine. You want to know what I think? I am glad you came out. You have never seen such a masterful public relations effort to get us to take the jab. It got so bad they know you love joints, so they offered you a joint for a jab. They have never talked to the medical community of our doctors, our medical practitioners, about the comorbidity problem that exists in the community. Never, never, never.
They have never come in the Black community to tell us, “You got to watch the salt intake. You got to watch the kind of food that is being fed to you in the Black community. You’re suffering from obesity, high blood pressure, stress.” Look at you. Nobody comes to tell you how to get out from those comorbidities, underlying problems associated with the coronavirus.
But a vaccine came after a pathogen that found a host in us. Now they call our doctors. Doctors write us a letter saying they love us. I’m sure you do but it’s time for the B.S. to end. You don’t love us enough. You don’t want to make a sacrifice for the good of your people. You are afraid you’re going to lose a job. That is what the White man gave you when you got here … a job.
“Well, I better go and take the jab because I’ll lose my job.” You don’t even think about losing your life. Do you know how long they have been working on Black people in a genocidal birth control plot and plan? Look at all the devices they have for your sex drive. Intrauterine device, diaphragm, pills. These are poisons interfering with your menstrual cycle. And you are such a sex crazy people, “ain’t nothing going to interfere with my sex.” Yeah, baby death is going to interfere with your sex. Let me see you have sex in that damn casket.
I told you I was going to call your number. But I am your brother and I love you. How much money do you think they give doctors now? Not to curb your diabetes, not to curb your high blood pressure, not to curb your obesity but to encourage you to take the shot. See the Bible ends with the wars and rumors of wars but before that and after there’s betrayal. You’re being betrayed by those who love you, but their love is not deep enough. Take the jab, take the shot.
And our wonderful president is the chief inviter to death for you. His voice got soft, “take the shot, take the shot.” President Biden laid it out here then he got mad. “You all are interfering with us, with that negative talk.” They took me off all my social media platforms. They said I was saying bad things by defending my position against inoculation. Is Brother Ben X here?
Brother Ben has a heck of a program. Lots of people are listening to Brother Ben and Ben tells them about the Minister. Is Rizza Islam here? Rizza, you are lighting them up. I guess Rizza is so tough out there he’s on that Bad Nigger List. “How dare you stop these people from getting the jab!” The Nation of Islam is on the opposite side of the government of the United States of America.
I went to the Alhambra Palace restaurant to host a dinner for most of you today. Alhambra is a beautiful restaurant. We bought out the whole restaurant. Nice vegetarian dishes, those who love lamb, those who love chicken, those who do not love any of that but love good. Guess who showed up? The police and the city administration. I heard someone told them we carry guns. I do not know the truth of that.
I just heard it. But we bought the restaurant out and there is a provision for those who have religious exemptions that we would have the whole place. We put down thousands of dollars so we could eat together as brothers and sisters, and I might be able to come among you and tell you I love you. Then I have to get ready, my time is come. Not my time to die. Happy Saviours’ Day!
The vaccine has divided families. Those who took it and those who didn’t. Then the media comes out saying, “this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated” and “it is these people that will not be vaccinated, they are the ones that keep us from achieving herd immunity.” And along came the Amish. The Amish people did not take the shot. They caught covid and they beat it. They beat it and have achieved herd immunity among themselves.
I am so glad to see you all so close to each other. I’m going to ask Allah (God) right now, dear Allah these are our people. They came to hear your servant. A pathogen is not too small to escape your power. I’m asking that you keep those who came this day listening for a Swan Song from your servant from becoming sick because of their visit. But if you do get sick you call us. We have the therapy. Thank you, Brother Rizza Islam, thank you Brother Ben X. Keep up the good works.
Where is Brother Wesley Muhammad? Brother, that research of yours, they are killing us by zip code. Have you noticed our brother, “Dynamite!” Jimmy “J.J.” Walker, on the television commercial for government insurance, “all we have to do is tell them your zip code?” What does that have to do with you getting some help? It zeros into what your community is, who you are. I have some brothers in here that take the flu shot. I never took it, but they go in a neighborhood where White folks and Jewish people get the shot and so far, they haven’t gotten sick.
Now beloved here we are at the end. We were all in the National House in Phoenix, we all caught the coronavirus. Mother Khadijah Farrakhan was sick on the plane. We had our masks on but all of a sudden, she was getting sick. By the time we got to Phoenix she was sick. We took the test; she tested positive. My daughter came out there, and she knew the treatment with monoclonal antibodies.
She had just finished helping her mother-in-law survive with that. So, she came out, Mother Khadijah got the monoclonal antibodies; then I came down with it. After all these years I was trying to be nice, then I got it. Everybody in the house had it. The cooks got it, so they stopped cooking. I said, “let me get the hell out of here.” Smile. Next thing I knew they had it.
And guess what we were trying out monoclonal antibodies, Ivermectin and other therapies. Only one person went in the hospital. So, if you think that by our being unvaccinated, we’re prone to hospital time … wrong. We have survived. I want to thank Dr. Safiyya Shabazz. I want to thank Dr. Darnita. I want to thank all of those who are helping us to survive.
Now we made it. I mean Khadijah had the needle to get the anti-monoclonal antibodies in her. I received the monoclonal treatment, but I had my pills to the side in case I did not get over it with the monoclonal. I got over it so fast it scared me. Sister Student MGT Captain Naeemah Muhammad has a book that the MGT is putting out and they give it away free, but it has all the information in it if you want to survive this. You do not have to take a shot. Well now we are persona on grata: “Have you gotten your shot?”
People tell you quickly, “Well you cannot come to this party or this gathering, you have not been shot.” All right. The last thing I am going to say. I do not want us to get weak because the propaganda is so strong it will make you think if you do not have the shot, you did something wrong. No. Look at Kyrie Irving, the NBA basketball player. Kyrie said, “Respect my right of choice.” And they jumped on him, “Man we ain’t going to get no championship.” Kyrie did not sign up for no damn shot. He signed up to play basketball. He kept his body healthy. He was not putting dope in himself. Why would he need your poison?
Now they have taken all our leaders: “Stand up and tell them there is nothing wrong with the shot.” “I took it.” “You did?”
Hey, did they tell you once you take this shot and you get the second shot you got it made?
Wait, wait, wait. What is this I hear? The shot that we took is waning, losing its power to do what you told us it would do. So now you need a booster shot. Israel has four shots, and they are looking at five. I want you to look at Israel. Israel is a leader in every field. Now she has a bad record with the shots. …
Now lastly, I knew God was going to do something with the weather, but I did not know what. And I knew there was something else that He wanted to do that He wanted me to pay attention to and that was the war was going to breakout. Have you been reading the news? Russia struck Ukraine. What does that mean? It means the war to end all wars has started. Listen carefully. This is the end of what I wanted to say to you today.
Love truth. Everything that you look at that was created by Allah (God) is truth. Fight for truth. Do you know how the War of Armageddon starts? It starts with a Messenger of God teaching people the truth. Then people fall on either side, if you disbelieve the truth then you will continue in your way … bad. The liars are so thick that you can tell the truth and the truth does not seem to move the lie. Do you know why? Because the forces that uphold the lie are upholding the lie with their power. So, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, my Teacher said, that means that it has to be physically removed. It is about to happen.
Everywhere on the earth people are crying out for justice. Everywhere on the earth it is getting rough for those in leadership. So, in my belated confusion—no. In my belated conclusion, the war is on. This is not the real war. But it is showing you that Russia does not care about what America says. They are treating President Biden with all the power of America like a weakling. “Well, we are going to sanction this and sanction this and sanction that and then … but I ain’t going to send no troops over there.” Well how you going to force anything if you do not have your enforcers there? “But no, no, see that is not our war.”
You remember Woodrow Wilson he wanted to keep America out of World War I? Did not he promise, did not he promise, to stay out? Where did we end up in World War I? So, President Biden is talking. He said, “No we are not going there.” See Ukraine is not a part of NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, but NATO is encroaching on Russia. Ukraine wants to be part of NATO. So do not think that if Russia takes the Ukraine, it’s going to stop there? It is going to get harder and heavier.
Europe the Messenger wrote … “I have the key to your salvation.” Elijah Muhammad talking, “and I have the key to your hell. I can if you will let me pull you out of hell and set you into heaven. Then I can keep you in heaven or I can keep pushing you and push you into the punishment of hell until you acknowledge that there is no God but Allah who came in the person of Master Fard Muhammad to whom praises are due forever, and that Elijah Muhammad is His servant.”
See there is no escape for you today. Now I want to sing a Swan Song for you. The Final Call newspaper that was started by Elijah Muhammad stopped after a few editions. The Minister was told by Elijah Muhammad one day, listen to the wise way the Teacher talks to a student, he said, “Brother if there was any symbol that I could use that represents my work, my mission, it is a trumpet.” He stopped and he was talking at the table, then he turned back to me, he said, “And have the trumpet coming out of the corner of the page.” Then he tells me, “Go like you see me go and do like you see me do.”
So, when I started trying to rebuild the Nation, we needed a paper. Some of my opponents that thought they were the ones, they wanted to setup Muhammad Speaks but Muhammad Speaks did not come first. So, I started like he started … “Go like you see me go.” Now here comes The Final Call. Where is the trumpet? Coming out of the corner of the page. Well now I am called the publisher, yes. Some say he is the founder. No, I am not the founder. I will accept publisher, but the founder of the paper is Elijah Muhammad.
Now look The Final Call has been telling it.
And I have to say Brother Ishmael Muhammad has been preaching it. Now when I see you, you do not need to be afraid. “I ain’t going to … when the Minister go ….” Do not give me the false love story. Stay where you are. You do not need to run. Brother Ishmael has a burden on him. He has to beat history because his brother gave us our First Examination and we failed it. He’s in that position now as the face of the Teachings and he loves Elijah Muhammad. Elijah Muhammad is his physical and spiritual father. He loves Master Fard Muhammad. And he loves me. But you are always tested in your love when the Teacher goes away.
You know how you can tell I love Elijah? Because for 44 years in his absence I stood on his word. People told me, “You are a leader in your own right. You do not need to wear the baggage of Elijah.” I would not have any truth to tell if I did not have Elijah. Find me another student of a great Teacher who worked on behalf of that Teacher for 44 years lifting his name. Find it. I will wait. Ain’t no sense in me waiting, I know you cannot find it. So, wait a minute, if absence is what makes the heart grow fonder and my Teacher been gone for 47 or more years from 1975 and Farrakhan is not representing himself ‘til recently … What happened? My Teacher told me once, “Brother do not worry about where you are in the scriptures. Make my great commission known and I will represent you to the people.”
What is his great commission? You ready? He told me do you know what it means Jesus fasted in the wilderness for 40 days? I said, “No sir.” He said it means that he was forbidden to make a convert to himself until after 40 years. I mentioned this to the Messenger one day. He said, Yes brother I was forbidden. You know me as the Messenger, but Master Fard Muhammad said why don’t you accept the assignment and get the big name? There are just two big names: Mahdi and Messi, Messiah.
You been looking for Jesus. Nobody talks about Jesus like Farrakhan talks about Jesus. Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody. I talk about Jesus because I know Jesus, I follow Jesus, I love Jesus and I suffer from the same scribes, Pharisees, Sadducees, and the Jews that Jesus suffered from. So, you mean Elijah Muhammad is the Messiah? Yes. He’s the Great Messiah. Hold on now. I’m sneaking up on something. See the reason I told you all earlier, I love everything my Teacher said but when he told me about myself, I doubted because I never thought that much about me. And he used to say this word to me, “I saw a man climbing up a mountain late in the evening carrying a heavy load. And he asked when will my help come. And he kept climbing the mountain and when he reached the top of the mountain.” Listen to his words, “Hosanna, Hosanna my help is come. And the angels came and bore him away over the dashing foam.” And he would say that word to me about three times. Why did he keep saying that one to me?
He called me from New York, “I want you to come out brother.” “Yes sir, dear Apostle,” I said. I came. He said, “Brother my head pains me at night and sometimes I feel like I am going to have a stroke. I called you out here to give you some of my burden.” Student Farrakhan has his hands folded at the desk listening to the teacher and that is all he said. “You can go back to New York now brother,” he said. See that is how you teach a dummy. You have to lay it on him in a way that he will not know what it is, but he will think about it.
Now I would pick up the Holy Qur’an and I have read it many times. I am into Chapter 20 “Taha.” And Moses is praying listen to his prayer. “My Lord expand my breast for me and ease my affair for me. And loose the knot from my tongue that they may understand my word. And give to me an aider from my family, Aaron my brother. Add to my strength by him and make him share my task. So that we may glorify thee much and remember thee. Surely thou art ever seeing us.” And Allah (God) said, “Thou art indeed granted your petition oh Moses.”
The Son of Man is a man born out of the longing of the people, he had a mother. His mother was named Marie. She brought Elijah into the world. He was strange, he was different. He was the seventh child about twelve, I think. And when the Saviour was with him, he said, “I want to give you a big name.” “I would like to keep Elijah,” said the Messenger. And the Saviour said, “Yes brother you can keep that name. This is the God and a servant talking and He is calling him brother.” Brother. And then Moses is given a brother. “Your brother Aaron is on his way to you.” So in February 1954, he said, “I’ve been trying for 22 years to get this word into the heart of our people. I think I am going to ask Allah to give me a little helper.” And in the next year 1955 I came through the doors like some of you came through the doors today.
To be continued.
