The Great Commotion

The great commotion of the government and people of America; the civil unrest, insurrection, mental excitement and noisy confusion–there is no action that is being taken, nor can there be any action taken, that would bring the people to a better condition of civil action. The White American people have practiced evil and injustice to the man in the mud,...

Under the Shadow of Death

We, the Black lost-found of our people here in America live under the shadow of death by way of cowardly enemies. Every one of us–the cowardly enemies seek our deaths, one way or another. The cowardly enemies will not fight you as a brave man would fight you if they think that you would fight back. They will steal on...

What The So-Called Negro Must Do For Himself

Men everywhere are seeking unity among themselves. Every race of people want unity with their own kind first, except my people, the so-called Negro in America. Our condition and lack of love for ourselves must be attributed to the slave-master. He has been our teacher until the coming of Almighty God, Allah. The slave-master has robbed my people of...

Beware of false promises

The government only wants to pacify her once slaves with fancy false promises that she knows she cannot fulfill without the loss of friendship and bloodshed among her own people. But there is nothing like a good future in these rosy promises for the so-called Negroes. Why should the government hinder us? We want some of this earth and its...

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...

Beautiful Appearance and Long Life

Allah, in the person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praise is due forever, came to give us a spiritual life which would automatically give us a physical life of Himself (the life of the righteous), which we lost by following other than righteous guides. We cannot be successful in making the progress of a spiritual life, unless we have...

The Sure Truth

(Taken from Chapter 69 of the Holy Qur'an.) What is said there in Chapter 69 of the Holy Qur'an is so true and is being fulfilled in this day and time. This Chapter is warning the people in the time of the Resurrection of the mentally dead of what happened in the histories of former people who were doomed to...

The Coming of The Son of Man, The Great Mahdi

“For as the lightning cometh out of the East, and shineth even unto the West, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be.” (Matt. 24:27) My greatest and only desire is to bring true understanding of the word of God, His prophets and the scriptures, which the prophets were sent with, pertaining to the lost-found people (the...

Four Great Judgments of America

To be plagued with too much rain will destroy property and lives. It swells the rivers and creeks. Too much rain floods cities and towns. Large bodies of water at the ocean shore lines will be made to swell with unusually high waves, dumping billions of tons of water over the now seashore line. Rain destroys property and kills cattle...

The Coming of God and The Gathering Together of His People

The prophets have warned us of a time that would come when God would judge the wicked and punish, or rather destroy, the wicked and give the earth over to the rule of a righteous people. So many of us have misunderstood just what we should expect. What will God look like? If we expect the destruction of the...
