The National Election

The Black man of America has been privileged by the slavemasters’ children for the last century to vote for Whites for the offices to judge and rule. This freedom to vote has made the Black man in America feel very dignified and proud of himself. He goes to the polls very happy to vote for a White ruler. Today,...

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,...

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...

Battle In The Sky Is Near

The vision of Ezekiel’s wheel in a wheel in the sky is true if carefully understood. There is a similar wheel in the sky today which very well answers the description of Ezekiel’s vision. This wheel corresponds in a way with the sphere of spheres called the universe. The Maker of the universe is Allah (God) the Father of...

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...

Beware of Starchy Foods and Sweets

God Almighty has taught me–and many others–that we should never eat more than one meal a day. That will most certainly heal you of many complaints. Since the American citizens eat more meat, sugar and starchy foods than they should, there is almost an epidemic of too much sugar accumulating in our blood. Eating one meal a day, which...

America’s Land Being Divinely Curtailed

Holy Qur’an, Ch. 13:41, “See they not that We are visiting the land, curtailing it of its sides? And Allah pronounces a doom—there is no repeller of His decree. And He is swift in calling to account.” Black Man in America, there is no one as blind as you are in seeing what is going on against America. I have...

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...

Build Our Own Society

When I speak of the time and what must be done, I am not referring to the time of the solar system but to the time of a people whose existence and rule of the original people of the earth is limited to 6 thousand years. This time of 6 thousand years was divinely given to this world–the time...

Time Is At Hand

Know that Allah is with us (the Believers), and Allah has promised in the Bible and in the Holy Qur’an, that if we believe and put our trust in Him, He is sufficient as a Protector, that no weapons formed against the true Believers will prosper. We are the true Believers of Allah. As the Holy Qur’an teaches, they planned...
