White anger, White insecurity and global White terror

Murderous rage in New Zealand, which left 50 people killed in attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, is part of global, growing and deadly White deadly resentment, said analysts, activists and scholars interviewed by The Final Call.

"It is very disconcerting, and we should see it as the tip of the iceberg,” said Dr. Wesley Muhammad, a Nation of Islam student minister who holds a Ph.D. in Islamic Studies.

The world largely awakened March 15 to news of one of the bloodiest terror attacks in recent times. A White gunman converged on the mosques targeting everyone in sight during traditional Friday congregational prayer services. An estimated 500 Muslims were attending the Al-Noor Mosque with others at the smaller Linwood Mosque, a short distance away.

“The pool of sentiment from which he (Mr. Tarrant) came … globally it’s the angry White man, because globally their population is in reverse,” said Dr. Muhammad. » FULL STORY

A Message to the WOMEN OF IMPACT Awards 2019

By Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

Now, my dear brothers and sisters, when we receive an honor, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said to me, we don’t get honor, real honor, until the job is done. So, this Impact Award is encouragement to all the brothers and sisters who are working on the problem of Freedom, Justice and Equality for our people and for all who are deprived of these three essentials of life.

You have made an impact, but the problem still remains. So, we thank you for your work and we encourage you and others to keep on working and one day we will be able to say, “Wow, job well done. The Black man and woman of America and humanity throughout the earth are free at last, free at last.”

Today is a great day, the 19th of January, and women are marching, saying to the world, no longer will women accept an inferior status or position. The Holy Qur’an, which is the most magnificent book of guidance and scripture says, God speaking, “That the female is not like the male. She is one degree beneath the male.” » CONTINUE

How to PROTECT DEMOCRACY

By Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

What does democracy mean? The Founding Fathers of this country lived in Europe and they saw the error of government that they experienced. They wanted to frame a Constitution that would guard this nation against those things that they suffered in Europe. They did a pretty good job in what they wrote. In a democracy, where people have the right to choose their leaders, people lead with the consent of the governed. That means they (leaders) are not the masters; they are our servants. » CONTINUE

The Greatness of MASTER FARD MUHAMMAD

By THE HONORABLE MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN

Those of you who do not know Master Fard Muhammad may think that we are in error for believing in Him as Mahdi.

But, if He told the truth, then you are going to have to reason with this man. » CONTINUE

God Has Come to Answer Our Cry for Justice

By Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

Now, they put the blame on you, sisters. That’s terrible to say that the poor sister (Eve) got Adam to rebel against God—I don’t think you should take that any longer, sisters, that’s not your fault. But the scripture teaches “the serpent” started talking to Eve, and she became susceptible to his deceitful interpretation of God’s Instruction. [Women are very powerful ... Because, even some “pillow talk” caused “Brother Adam” to disobey God—and the rest is history.] The world that we live in is a world of rebellion. » CONTINUE

The Meaning of Love

By The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

My subject today was inspired by a sister who visited our home, and at the end of the evening she asked me, “Brother Farrakhan, I’ve watched you grow and I’m touched by the growth of your love for our people. How can I grow to love like I see you love?” I never have been asked a question like that, but, while she was asking, Allah (God) was giving me the answer. I answered her, and as I looked at the words going out of my mouth, I realized that Allah (God) had given to me something so profound that I determined that at the first chance I get, I would share it with you. » CONTINUE

Consecration, Service and Truth: LEADERS RISING AMONG LEADERS

By The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

Jesus was not a friend of this world. ... The disciple James said the “love of this world is enmity with God”; and some of you will retort from John 3:16: “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son. That whosoever believed in him would not perish, but have everlasting life.” So it is with these scriptures that I begin our subject matter. » CONTINUE
