Independence

Independence means to be free of the dominance of others. It is a very happy feeling for one to enjoy self-freedom! The White race, in the Western Hemisphere, takes this day, July 4, 1972, to be a day to worship in remembrance of their achieving Independence from other people. The White race in the Western Hemisphere had to conquer the...

If the civilized man fails to perform his duty, what must be done?

FCNNEWSSOURCE The duty of the civilized man is to teach civilization to the uncivilized–the arts and sciences of civilized people and countries of advanced civilization. A Divine Messenger of God (Allah), raised among His people with the Divine Message, is held responsible for its delivery. His message teaches spiritual civilization, which is important to the success of a nation and...

The Right of Self-Defense

The so-called Negroes of Birmingham, Alabama, would have been justified by the law of justice if they had killed every dog sicked upon them by the hired, tax-paid policemen, for the taxpayers did not hire dogs to police their lives and property. And if the policemen had fired upon those who defended themselves against the bites of savage dogs...

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...

The Decision

Holy Qur'an, Chapter 78:2 “Of the tremendous announcement.” "The Day of Decision." We are now living in the time in which we must decide on what we should do.

Islam: A Unifying Religion

White man's Christianity has absolutely failed to get recognition and respect for us–even from those who taught it to us. It is a religion that teaches you to love your enemies and hate your friend and to seek your reward after death. It has produced more division and hate than all the other religions combined. White Christianity has robbed...

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...

Revelation Guides Aright

“And they will have no friends to help them besides Allah. And he whom Allah leaves in error cannot find a way. Hearken to your Lord before there comes from Allah the day which there is no averting. You will have no refuge on that day, nor will it be yours to make a denial. But if they...

Build Black Economy

Black Economy is one of the first steps that is necessary for the Black Man to take; from economy in his home to farms and factories.         We Boast that we are free.   To boast of Freedom of Self, means that you are one who is responsible for your economic condition.         A...

Original Man Know Thyself

It is knowledge of self that the so-called Negroes lack which keeps them from enjoying freedom, justice and equality. This belongs to them divinely as much as it does to other nations of the earth. It is Allah's (God's) will and purpose that we shall know ourselves. Therefore He came Himself to teach us the knowledge of self. Who...
