Remembering Elijah Al-Amin: A collision between an innocent victim, White fear and White supremacy

The sheer audacity and the ruthlessness of Elijah Al-Amin's death is reverberating far beyond the Circle K convenience store where a man—two days out of prison—walked up behind him while he was getting a fountain drink, stabbed him twice in the back and then cut his throat.

Elijah, 17, died shortly after in a Phoenix area hospital in the early morning hours of Independence Day.

Black parents across the country are holding their children closer, pulling them aside to warn them of the ever-present dangers for children of African descent in America and praying for them every time the young people leave the house.

And in Phoenix, Elijah's parents, family and others stunned by his murder, are hoping justice will prevail. » FULL STORY

Islam: An Invitation To All Humanity

By The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

This great day of honor, we thank Allah (God) for his (Prophet Muhammad’s, Peace Be Upon Him) birth into the world, and thanking Allah that he (the Prophet) had a heart so attuned to Allah (God) that it pleased Allah (God) to give him the final revelation that would be given to the world before its judgment. We thank Allah for a perfect example in him (the Prophet), and we thank Allah (God) for his (Prophet Muhammad’s) sunnah (way). I’m honored to speak of him today, and I shall speak of him probably in a different way than you are used to hearing of him. Although there are no words that are good enough to describe the beauty of such a human being, yet, he is not glorified by words.

Minister Farrakhan Speaks At 'Sacred Ground' Memorial Site Honoring Nipsey Hussle

By The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

As-Salaam Alaikum. My dear brothers and sisters, what a joy it is to be standing on sacred ground. The man who made this happen is not just an ordinary man because ordinary men don’t think like he thought; ordinary men don’t do like he did. He was a man that God sent this way and he rose up out of a culture that nobody would think that greatness would come out of. It’s like the Bible says about where Jesus was born … “Can any good come out of Nazareth?” Can any good come out of the ‘hood? And Nipsey answered and said here am I, send me. » CONTINUE
