‘A capsule of the highest explosives’

“And obey not the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and disregard their annoying talk, and rely on Allah. And Allah is enough as having charge (of affairs).” (Holy Qur'an 33:48) “Surely those who annoy Allah and His Messenger, Allah has cursed them in this world and the Hereafter, and He has prepared for them an abasing chastisement. And those who annoy...

Lessons on self-development and proper attitudes

Farrakhan The Traveler

In my last article I used the word “ocean.”   Later, I came to see that my article contained one word that is wrong. I should have used the word “lake” instead of the word “ocean.” A lake is very different from an ocean. That part of last week's article should have read “A few days later, while looking over...

Ending confusion, closing the gap

Farrakhan The Traveler

Now that we have covered what we have, in the last few articles, we can get closer to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan's heart–a heart that was prophesied by God through His prophets long ago. After his teacher, Minister Farrakhan has the next hardest job of any man who ever lived. This job is as hard as it is because...

Our lives fit into a plan of good to those who love God

Farrakhan The Traveler

The reason I asked the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan what courses he took in high school was to help us look a bit deeper into an important aspect of his preparation prior to his meeting with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. It bears on his success in his performance of the divine assignment he received from the Messiah before he...

Method, motive, maturity, love: The keys to learning

Farrakhan The Traveler

The word obligation means an act or course of action to which a person is morally or legally bound; a duty or commitment; the condition of being morally or legally bound to do something. The word obligation is also connected to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan's assignment, given to him in 1955, from the Honorable Elijah Muhammad when he first...

Living to manifest Gods attributes

Farrakhan The Traveler

It has been estimated, by some, that most people use but a very small amount of the potential of their minds. I’ve read percentages. How they arrive at those figures, and justify them, I don’t know. But the point they make is that human beings live very far within their capacity for demonstrating the qualities that make them "human." What...

We should not be blind today

Farrakhan The Traveler

In the Muhammad Ali translation of the Holy Qur'an, we read that Moses made this request of Allah for his “brother, Aaron, he is more eloquent in speech than I, so send him with me as a helper to confirm me. He said: … We will give you both an authority, so that they shall not reach you. With...

A dangerous nexus: The door from the old to the new by Jabril Muhammad

Farrakhan The Traveler

This is the final part of my interview with the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan on October 9, 2005 in Phoenix, Arizona. This interview grew out of my desire to share with others his (and my) response to this question: Who, and with what power, motivated Minister Farrakhan in his call for the Millions More Movement? There is the most intimate and...

Recognizing the uniqueness of Allah’s (God’s) servant

Farrakhan The Traveler

On an AME Church marquee I recently saw these words: “Our favorite attitude should be gratitude.” I smiled and nodded my head in agreement. Later, I thought on these words with gratitude to Allah, as I thought on the words of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad on and to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. I thought of the magnificently wise ways...
