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...

America

The American White people are more concerned about mistreating the Black once-slave of America than America is concerned with any nation on earth that is attacking her out-lying posts. Her enemies are intensifying their attacks on her. America is right out of the frying pan into the fire all over the earth, due to her evil intentions against her...

Get knowledge to benefit self

I am for the acquiring of knowledge or the accumulating of knowledge—as we now call it; education. First, my people must be taught the knowledge of self. Then and only then will they be able to understand others and that which surrounds them. Anyone who does not have a knowledge of self is considered a victim of either amnesia...

First, Love Yourself

One of the gravest handicaps among the so-called Negroes is that there is no love for self, nor love for his or her own kind. This not having love for self is the root cause of hate (dislike), disunity, disagreement, quarreling, betraying, stool pigeons and fighting and killing one another. How can you be loved, if you have not...

Plan to Destroy Our Race

The American so-called Negroes are gravely deceived by the slave-masters’ teaching of God and the true religion of God. They do not know they are deceived and earnestly believe they are right regardless of how vile the White race may be. My poor people are mentally blind, deaf and dumb and full of fear. Blind because they do not see...

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 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...

Confusion, Confusion of People

Now the rise of America’s once slave into the knowledge of self, in the spirit of Allah, in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad (the son of Man), the Author of the Resurrection of us the mentally dead is causing untold confusion among the heads of state. The scripture is being fulfilled wherein it prophesies that in these days (meaning...

Knowledge of Time

If only the American so-called Negroes had knowledge of the time in which we now live, they would accept Islam at once; for it is just the acceptance of Islam which will bring the so-called Negroes the things they desire; good homes, money and friendship in all walks of life. This is the time that they should enjoy such...

The Day of America’s Downfall

Allah manifests the fall of America. He desires to make America fall as a warning to her brothers in Europe. White Americans and Germans—Allah has taught me—are the most wicked of the White race. The wicked deeds that have been performed and are still being performed by White Americans upon the so-called Negroes (their slaves) are the worst in...
