Islam Dignifies

Why do I stress the religion of Islam for my people, the so-called American Negroes. First, and most important, Islam is actually our religion by nature. It is the religion of Allah (God), not a European organized White man's religion. Second, it is the original, the only religion of Allah (God) and His prophets. It is the only religion that will...

The Blood Shedder

According to the word of Allah (God) and the history of the world, since the grafting of the Caucasian race 6,000 years ago, they have caused more bloodshed than any people known to the black nation. Born murderers, their very nature is to murder. The Bible and Holy Qur'an Sharrieff are full of teachings of this bloody race of...

The Cruel Days of The Lord

What causes these Days to be cruel when God Himself Is a Righteous God? What now makes His Coming to be a Cruel Coming? It is because He Is the Righteous God, and He is the Owner of the earth. And the previous substitute (White race), that the earth was let out to, to rule the Original Black People for a...

America Surrounded with The Judgment of Allah

The four great judgments that Almighty Allah (God) is bringing upon America are rain, hail, snow and earthquakes. We see them now covering all sides of America, as the Holy Qur'an prophesies, curtailing her on all her sides. And these judgments would push the people into the center of the country, and there they would realize that it is...

A House Doomed to Fall

We cannot deny the fact that the Christian West is responsible for this universal corruption in the land and sea. From the same corruption that their own hands have wrought will come their doom. The Christians preach that which they do not do and cannot do such as “Love thy neighbor.” I have as yet to meet one who loved his...

Savagery of America

The great country of America and her great richness, great institutions and her great towns and cities spread out like a blanket over the surface of the Western Hemisphere with her tall buildings going upward over a hundred stories! The great architects and building engineers have become such experts at building to precision that it makes their past history...

Independence Day

Whose independence? Since 1776 you, Black man, have been worshipping the 4th of July along with the real author of the 4th of July ... (the White man) as a day of Independence for themselves. It is the White slave-master and his children who enjoy setting forth the 4th of July as a day of rejoicing over achieving this country's...

Certainty of the Punishment

(Holy Qur'an 70:6,7,8)Ch. 70:6, “Surely they see it far off,”7, “And We see it nigh.”8, “The day when the heaven is as molten brass.” The Holy Qur'an, is the truest religious Book, that can be found on the planet earth. It gives guidance to the wisest philosopher and to the most ignorant savage says Maulana Muhammad Ali, (translator of...

The Hidden Truth

Hiding the truth is a very serious thing to do. It causes harm and disappointment and causes one to be misled. It causes loss of property and life. It causes the loss of friendship, beloved ones, and loss of confidence and trust. In court, it causes heavy penalties and someone's being sent to prison or to death for that of...

Fire Fed With Fuel

The subject of this chapter is taken from the Holy Qur'an Chapter 85:5. We do not hope for peace as long as we add to the war that which serves as fuel to a fire. The fire cannot go out as long as we keep it burning by adding more fuel. A dying, burning fire is increased when more fuel...
