The Nation of Islam is a political movement founded in Detroit, United States, by Wallace D. Fard Muhammad on July 4, 1930 hiding under the umbrella of religion.
This organization was set up by someone who thinks good for the black race but goes about doing teaching the same evil he thinks he’s fighting. How can you wash a dirty white cloth with charcoal??. The organization was set up to fight racism, yet they are also racists.
Malcolm X puts the racist teachings of the organization thus;
– That black people were the original people of the world
– That white people were a race of devils who were created by an evil scientist named Yakub.
– The Nation of Islam believed that black people were superior to white people and that the demise of the white race was imminent.
The Nation of Islam is a big irony. Their actions and teachings contrast their name. Malcolm X says these about their Aqeedah,
– That Islam was the “true religion of black mankind” and that Christianity was “the white man’s religion” that had been imposed upon African Americans by their slave-masters.
– That Wallace Fard Muhammad, the founder of the Nation, was Allah incarnate
– That Elijah Muhammad was his Messenger or Prophet.
The nation of Islam Indeed. When Malcolm X went to Saudi Arabia for hajj, he got to know what true Islam is and how Islam is against racism. This drove him to make these statements,
“I am not a racist. I am against every form of racism and segregation, every form of discrimination. I believe in human beings, and that all human beings should be respected as such, regardless of their color.”
“I am not a racist… In the past I permitted myself to be used…to make sweeping indictments of all white people, the entire white race and these generalizations have caused injuries to some whites who perhaps did not deserve to be hurt. Because of the spiritual enlightenment which I was blessed to receive as a result of my recent pilgrimage to the Holy city of Mecca, I no longer subscribe to sweeping indictments of any one race. I am now striving to live the life of a true Muslim. I must repeat that I am not a racist nor do I subscribe to the tenants of racism. I can state in all sincerity that I wish nothing but freedom, justice and equality, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all people.”
“I am not a racist in any form whatsoever. I don’t believe in any form of discrimination or segregation.”
He also wrote in a letter to his wife, Never have I witnessed such sincere hospitality and the overwhelming spirit of true brotherhood as is practiced by people of all colors and races here [Mecca]…. this pilgrimage has forced me to re-arrange much of my thought patterns… and toss aside some of my previous conclusions… In the words and in the actions and in the deeds of ‘white’ Muslims I felt the same sincerity that I felt among the black African Muslims of Nigeria, Sudan, and Ghana.
When you become [a true] Muslim, you don’t look at a man as being black, brown, red, yellow. You look at him as being a man”.
In April 1964, Malcolm X founded Muslim Mosque Inc after leaving the Nation of Islam.
Malcolm X’s criticism of the Nation of Islam spiritual leader Elijah Muhammad had caused a bitter split with church leaders, including Farrakhan. Farrakhan called Malcolm X a traitor and wrote, two months before the killing, that “such a man is worthy of death.”.
Not only this he admits to be involved in the murder. Farrakhan said, “it is true that black men pulled the trigger. We cannot deny any responsibility in this. Where we are responsible, where our hands are a part of this, we beg God’s mercy and forgiveness”. Open this link, he also admits to Malcolm X’s assassination. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=EfuZoJ7jopo ”
Three members of the Nation of Islam were convicted for his assassination. They are, Talmadge Hayer, Norman Butler, and Thomas Johnson. We have blacks in the nation of Islam, not whites. Whites didn’t kill Malcolm X, Blacks did.
It is important to know that the organization “Nation of Islam” does not only disparage and demean Islam, it also gives a false presentation of Islam. If a white hates Islam, he hates blacks and vice versa. The Nation of Islam contributes largely to this notion.
Beware of this organization, they don’t represent Islam rather it is an organization that is totally ethnocentric.
