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...

America is Falling Her Doom is Sealed

I compare the fall of America with the fall of ancient Babylon. Her wickedness (sins), is the same as history shows of ancient Babylon. “Babylon is suddenly fallen and the destroyed howl for her; take balm for her pains, if so she may be healed” (Jer. 51:81). What were the sins of ancient Babylon? According to history she...

Americas Doom Feared

Allah in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are due forever, for finding and offering to set us in heaven at once, on our submission to Him entirely! We fear the doom of America that is now cutting her to pieces. The prophecy teaches us that her doom will come in one day–death and mourning came in...

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...

Devils Fool And Disgrace You

Almighty Allah (God) and the Nation of Islam elsewhere (Asia and Africa, the Islands) are grieved and hurt to the heart to see you walking into the trap your enemies (the devils) have and still are setting for you. I am your sincere brother with the truth from your God and mine, which means your very life and the future...

Separate and be Saved

That unwillingness of the slaves to leave their masters is due to their great love for the slave-masters. If America is unwilling to grant her 22 million ex-slaves freedom to go for self today, it is the same unwillingness of White America's forefathers in dealing with our parents less than 100 years ago. During the time of the Emancipation Proclamation...

Friendship of Allah (God)

Of all friendships of friends and relations, theare is no friendship that is equal to the Friendship of Allah (God). To have Allah (God) as our Friend, we have a Place of Refuge -- we have a shelter from the great stormy tempest of the wicked. The Friendship Of Allah (God) is the kind of Friendship and Refuge that the...

Regrets of the Doubters

And on the day when the wrongdoer will bite his hands, saying, would that I had taken a way with the Messenger!” –Holy Qur'an 25:27 According to the histories of the prophets of the past, all of their rejected enemies and mockers of the people had this same regret when the truth of the message that these prophets delivered was...

Men’s Hearts Failing: Fear

How true the prophecy of Jesus, Lu. 21:25-26 concerning the present time. We bear witness that the sea and waves are roaring and that fear is now covering the nations as shown by the unusual heart failure that is now occurring among men. These are signs of the end of the present world. The sea and ocean are heaving up...

America’s Dreaded Destiny

America and her people have been here, according to history, since a few years after Columbus, the explorer. She conquered the aboriginal red Indians, the original owners of the land, whom she found here and took it for a home for herself and kind. She has continued conquering until her conquering power has gone around the earth affecting every...
