Brother Mustapha Farrakhan, Student Supreme Captain
As I reflect over the life of my beloved father, I think of the scripture in the Bible that says, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.” (Psalms 37:23)
Life is composed of decisions that must be made. Every decision that surrounds the life of my father, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, from his birth until this present day, including every decision that Allah has blessed him to make, has been Divinely orchestrated by Allah, Master Fard Muhammad, the Great Mahdi and the Exalted Christ, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
We thank Allah for the womb that bore him through my grandmother, Mother Sumayyah Farrakhan, and for the seed that produced him from his father whom he never met or knew, my grandfather Percival Clark. We thank Almighty God Allah for producing this divine human being for His purpose.
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee …” (Jeremiah 1:5)
We thank Allah for the choice He made in preparing a mate for him in my mother, Mother Khadijah Farrakhan. She has been his gracious companion, a faithful wife, and believer helping her husband in this mighty work and with the awesome task that has been bestowed upon him—the hardest job given to any man in the resurrection of our people.
The greatest knowledge, in my humble judgment, is to be taught the knowledge and reality of God. Whatever shortcomings that my beautiful father may have, pales into insignificance in comparison to the reality of God that he has taught us.
“Your companion errs not, nor does he deviate. Nor does he speak out of desire. It is naught but revelation that is revealed—One Mighty in Power has taught him, The Lord of Strength. So he attained to perfection, And he is in the highest part of the horizon.” Holy Qur’an Surah 53: 3-8
We thank Allah for 90 years of this servant of God and we pray that the rest of his journey will be just as profound and divinely orchestrated. Your Son, Mustapha Farrakhan
Sister Naeemah Muhammad, Student National M.G.T. Captain
“And what will make thee comprehend what the uphill road is? (It is) to free a slave, Or to feed in a day of hunger an orphan nearly related, or the poor man lying in the dust.”—Holy Qur’an, Surah 90, “The City” Verses 12-16
Dear Brother Minister, on behalf of the M.G.T. & G.C.C., I would like to express our sincere thanks and profound gratitude to Allah in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad and the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the Living Exalted Christ, for gifting us with you. Since the departure of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, you have faithfully climbed the uphill road in preaching the Divine Message of salvation and warning.
For approximately 46 years, you’ve been misunderstood, mislabeled, rejected, despised, and hated for your Father’s namesake. Yet, you remained strong and fearlessly spoke truth to power, even with Satan’s vehement desire to take your life.
You willingly laid down your life for us and sacrificed everything to fulfill the instruction of Allah in Surah 5:67, “O Messenger, deliver that which has been revealed to thee from thy Lord; and if thou do (it) not, thou hast not delivered His message. And Allah will protect thee from men.”
Despite many hard trials and vehement opposition on every side, you remained a faithful, steadfast, unshaken, and obedient Messenger of Allah to the entire world. We, the M.G.T., bear witness that you have delivered the Message because, through you, we have life and life more abundantly. Our lives testify to the power of the Word you have delivered. We thank Allah because were it not for your firm stand on the truth, we would not be here today.
So, on the 90th year of your birth anniversary, we thank Allah, Master Fard Muhammad, for gifting humanity with you as our only true salvation. And as you continue to climb that uphill road, Brother Minister, we pray that Allah will bless you so that when your reach the top of the mountain you can say, “Hosanna, Hosanna, my help has come!” May Allah bless you to see your Father and see the “City” in the sky.
Student Minister Ishmael Muhammad, National Assistant to Minister Farrakhan
Ninety years is a great milestone in a person’s life to be celebrated but many who live a long life may never accomplish much and be remembered beyond their contemporaries. Not the case for the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. We have heard it said, “it’s not how long one lives that matters but the quality of life one lives.”
Minister Farrakhan has devoted his entire life to the Will of Allah (God) and the Mission of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He has done a work that no man has done before. He has defied the odds with an unshakable uncompromising Faith and Love. He singlehandedly rebuilt the Nation of Islam and reproved the efficacy and veracity of the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
He has given hope to the hopeless, is a voice for the voiceless, preached the good news, comforted those that mourn, opened our eyes, and set free millions from the prison of ignorance. Minister Farrakhan is a prostate cancer survivor and a survivor of the Enemy’s murderous plots to kill him. The Minister stands strong, remains, and is worthy of praise and honor. He has earned our respect, love, and support.
There is so much that I can say to express my love and profound gratitude for Minister Farrakhan. Thank you is just not enough, it’s insufficient. So, since words are inadequate, I pray that my thanks will be expressed by helping you, by making my Prayer, my Sacrifice, my Life and my Death all for Allah, The Lord of the Worlds.
My Minister, my Teacher, my “tio,” all I am and hope to be is because of you. A long life, a good and blessed life and a life yet to live. My personal prayer is that Allah and His Christ fulfill the promise made to you for “verily Allah never breaks His promise”
“Oh Allah grant to Muhammad the means, the greatness and high dignity (honor) and exalt him to that most exalted place which You have promised him, surely You never break your Promise”
Love always, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, Now and Forevermore!
Sister Aminah Bayyinah Muhammad, Min. Farrakhan’s Administrative Assistant
Happy 90th Birth Anniversary! I am so grateful to Allah, Who came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, for you and the work you’ve done in your mission over these past seven decades. Some of us have not even been on this earth as long as you have been working on our behalf and those of generations yet to come.
You have continued to seed the earth with the Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, in His physical absence, which ensures that you and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and this Word will live forever by Allah’s Grace and Permission.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s Mind is His (Master Fard Muhammad) Mind and your Mind is the Mind of your Teacher and He has chosen you to sit in His seat as the Father over the House with Their Authority. Your perfect obedience to your Teacher continues to serve as our example.
For me, as a sister working for you, it makes me feel like I am blessed to be one of the Marys around Jesus and for that, I am forever grateful to Allah, the Christ and you for allowing me to be a part of that which will be written of in eternal History of the World.
We love you, Brother Minister and we can never thank Allah, in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad and the Exalted Christ, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad enough for you. I pray that we can continue to grow and line our minds up with your mind as you have lined your mind up with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad that we may be successful.
May Almighty God Allah continue to Grant you many more birth anniversaries to continue to Do His Will
Sister A’ishah Muhammad, Student National Auditing Supervisor
We thank Allah for the Blessed Union of your parents and your beloved mother, on this, the 90th Anniversary of your birth. No words can adequately express my deep and most heartfelt gratitude for having the honor and the blessing of being a follower of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, the Exalted and Living Christ and Mahdi, under your perfect and unequaled guidance as His Representative.
Had it not been for Allah’s coming by Himself and His Perfect Choice of the First begotten from the spiritually dead, we would not have received such a perfect guide, comforter and warner, and one who is the embodiment of grace, love, and mercy in you. We are so thankful for having One present that has been formed by Two Hands, for me personally, for our people, and for all of humanity!
On behalf of my family, may Allah continue to bless you with each passing day, and may we prove our love, not just by what we profess, but by our complete obedience to the Will of Allah as expressed clearly and perfectly through you as we strive to love one another even as you have loved us. I LOVE YOU, Brother Minister!!!
Student Minister Abdul Arif Muhammad, Esq. N.O.I. General Counsel
In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, the Merciful. On the occasion of the 90th Birth Anniversary of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, I’m grateful to Allah, who intervened in our affairs in the person of Master Fard Muhammad, the Great Mahdi, and raised in our midst his Messenger/Messiah and Exalted Christ, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. For they created with their two hands a gift of unequalled and unconditional love for us, in the person of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, the Messiah and Jesus among us.
His Mission is to make the great commission of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad known, reveal Satan’s identity and expose the Synagogue of Satan. With the two that back him, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan breathed into us spiritual life and resurrected a Nation from the dead, that had fallen, due to the evil plots and plans of Satan and his confederates.
There is no greater act of love. The greatest day of my life was when I laid eyes on the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, as a young student, and received the gift of spiritual life and made the decision to become his follower and helper.
His value to us is best stated by the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad who said, “You are more valuable to me than a truckload of diamonds and gold.” “You are more valuable to me than a thousand planes, each with a thousand head of sheep.” Finally, he said of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
“You are more valuable to me than all the wealth that is in the Earth, for that I found when I came here, and I will leave it when I’m gone, but through you I will get all of my people.” His teacher gave him the emblem of the National Representative, when he told him to take out the sign of the moon, from a uniform he had designed, saying to him “..for you have no equal.”
This left the emblem of a star coming out of the Sun. He is a star that has no equal. This is expressed in the Holy Quran, Surah 53 Al-Najm: THE STAR, ayats 1-14. Let us honor him by doing what he has asked of us, “Love ye one another even as I have loved you.” We say in our prayers, “Oh Allah, bestow on Muhammad, the means, the greatness, the high dignity.
And elevate him to that most exalted place which thou hast promised him, for verily thou never breaketh thy promise.” We believe in and pray that the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad will fulfill His promise, to bring you again, to that most exalted place that you visited on September 17th, 1985, and permit you to see him face to face! Happy 90th Birth Anniversary!!!
Brother Leonard Muhammad
Thank you, Honorable Minister Farrakhan, for your obedience to Allah and for your decades of love and dedicated service to our people. You have truly made known the great commission of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad as instructed. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this great work.
Student Minister Dr. Wesley Muhammad
To my Teacher and tremendous Benefactor, the Honorable Brother Minister Farrakhan, on this magnificent and triumphant 90th Birth Anniversary. In all my 50 years of life, I have never encountered a more beautiful Human Being than you, or a more excellent reflection of God Himself.
On May 11, 1933, the Saviour Master Fard Muhammad (To Whom All Praise Is Due Forever) gifted you to the world. Thank you, Sir, for your Love, for your Sacrifice, for your Divine Guidance. May He, Allah, continue to bless you Dear Apostle and your Family, and may He continue to bless us all through you.
Brother Ahmad Muhammad, Student Minister of Information
We have a chronological age; some say we have a biological and intellectual age, but what is the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s spiritual age?
It is said that the Gregorian calendar was instituted by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. During the first part of the 20th century, several doctors claim to have determined the methodology or test to determine our biological and mental age. But in 1 Corinthians 2:6 (ESV) it reads:
“Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away.”
It may be the 90th chronological birth anniversary, but how can we determine the age of love, spirit and wisdom of a man who continues to dedicate his life to serving Allah (God) and His Exalted Christ to bring the mentally dead to life? We simply cannot, especially in what comes forth from him, from The Father!
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23
Happy Spiritual Anniversary to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan!
Brother Sa’ad Alim Muhammad, Student National Secretary
I am thankful to Allah, in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, for causing You to be born 90 years ago on May 11, 1933. On that day, the Saviour not only blessed Your Mother with a child, but He blessed the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad with a beloved Son in whom He would be well pleased.
The Saviour made You “full of fire, the fire of the Holy Spirit of Allah,” and Your Teacher molded that fire into A Torchlight for America. As a Torchlight, You have made His word bond when He said, “I want to prove to Satan that My Minister is a greater Light to the world of man than you and your world’s man— the whole of them.”
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life.” (John 8:12) Jesus, however, did not make Himself the light of the world. One mighty in power taught him, fashioned him, and guided him into being that vessel from which Spiritual Light would emanate that would eventually illuminate the whole world.
The Holy Qur’an 64:8 reads, “So believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Light which We have revealed. And Allah is Aware of what you do.”
So, Brother Minister, as You prepare to depart from among us to be with Your Spiritual Father on “The Wheel,” please know that Your true disciples and helpers in the Cause of Allah will continue, in Your physical absence, to believe in Master Fard Muhammad, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, and Yourself and, Insha’Allah, we will be here upon Your return. I love You much and I pray to bear witness by my actions!
Brother Sultan Rahman Muhammad, Student National Imam of the Nation of Islam
I thank Allah (God) for the Blessed Day He gave the Honorable Elijah Muhammad a Helper in the Cause of Truth. I give thanks to Allah (God) for His Divine Mercy embodied in the Honorable Minister Farrakhan, as a proof of His Divine Light.
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said of Minister Farrakhan, “I say this is the one the world can’t bother! I want to prove to Satan that my Minister (Farrakhan) is a greater light to the world of man than you (Satan) and your world’s man — the whole of them.”
Minister Farrakhan is the proof of God’s Light in the world in a time of darkness for our people and all of humanity and of a New World coming in. I thank Allah (God) for your example of sacrifice, dedication and righteousness in service in the establishment of our Nation that is bringing in a New World for humanity!
Dear Honorable Minister Farrakhan, I am grateful and humbled to be honored by you to aid in service among the helpers of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad in this mighty work of Resurrection. “Our Lord, grant us what Thou hast promised us by Thy messengers and disgrace us not on the day of Resurrection.
Surely Thou never failest in (Thy) promise!” We are eternally Blessed to have received a demonstration of the Fusion of Allah’s Life-giving Light in your example. May Allah continue to Bless you on your 90th birth anniversary! From your brother and servant.
Brother Abdul Ra’uf Muhammad, Student National Protocol Director
It gives me pleasure to share words commemorating your 90th Birth Anniversary. I am deeply grateful to you for life. When the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad departed from us in 1975, I believed him to have died. When the Nation of Islam fell, my physical and spiritual life fell along with it.
I returned to the destructive lifestyle I had lived before accepting the Life-Giving teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. By Allah’s Grace and Mercy, Who came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, I was blessed to survive the devastating lifestyle I had returned to. After years of suffering, Allah inspired me to visit Mosque Maryam, which you by Allah’s grace and permission were blessed to reacquire and restore.
After hearing a message from you, my life was restored, my belief in Allah was restored, my faith in Him and His Messenger was restored. I returned to the Teachings of The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad and I began to experience Allah’s Blessings again in my life. This great experience in my life, I owe to you.
I cannot thank you enough for rebuilding the Nation of Islam and renewing my faith in Master Fard Muhammad, and His Exalted Christ. I thank you for your love and blessings in my life. My family thanks you. You have been a good shepherd and spiritual father. I pray Allah blesses you with a wonderful 90th Birth Anniversary with many more to come. I am honored to say, thinking of you: “My Redeemer Liveth.”
