‘I want to introduce you to Jesus’

It may be the most difficult job a man has ever faced: helping the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad complete his difficult task of resurrecting the mentally and spiritually dead Black man and woman in North America. Minister Louis Farrakhan explained in detail—Saviours’ Day 2019, on Feb. 17—how he was prepared for that role, in his mother’s womb, even before his birth.

“A Saviour is Born for the Whole of Humanity: No One Need Perish,” was the theme, celebrated by tens of thousands of members and guests attending the three day celebration of the birth anniversary of Master W. Fard Muhammad, the founder of the Nation of Islam in the Wilderness of North America, and the teacher of Mr. Muhammad who carried the message and built the Nation for 41 years, leaving a Divine Reminder—the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan—to show the world the way to salvation. » FULL STORY

2019 SAVIOURS’ DAY IS COMING! The Saviour, the Showdown and the Case for Separation

By Starla Muhammad

Saviours’ Day, the annual convention and gathering of the Nation of Islam, draws thousands of people from around the U.S. and abroad and is symbolically and affectionately dubbed the “Crowning Event of Black History Month.”

However, for members of the nearly 90-year-old Islamic movement and for Black people, it is that but so much more. Saviours’ Day is the commemoration of the birth of Master W. Fard Muhammad, the Messiah of the Christians, Mahdi of the Muslims and teacher of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He was born February 26, 1877 in the Holy City of Mecca in Arabia and traveled to America in search of the Black man and woman of America stylized in scripture as the “lost sheep.”

This year’s Saviours’ Day convention is in Chicago, headquarters city of the NOI from Feb. 15-17, and will feature plenary sessions, workshops, social gatherings, a Friday congregational prayer service, Mother Khadijah Farrakhan’s Children’s Village and the popular Drill Competition.

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. What I want you to do is to give Him a chance to tell you, through the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, what He revealed; then, you go and study it. If He (Fard Muhammad) lied, then, we can cast Him aside. 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

Min. Farrakhan Speaks with His Excellency Mohsen Rezaee, Secretary of the Expediency Discernment Council in Tehran, Iran PART TWO

By The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

I listened very carefully. What is so sad is that our first fight is with ourselves. The enemy that we must overcome is the Enemy of Self. If we were not prone to be deceived by our desires, Satan outside of us could never attract the Satan within ourselves.

So we must never forget that Allah the Most High knows that among the sheep there are wolves that are in sheep’s clothing. Sometimes they’re in our families, sometimes we’re sleeping in bed with Shaitan. So today we have to train our ears to listen to our own thoughts and analyze where those thoughts are coming from.

The last two chapters of the Qur’an are the chapters of refuge. I seek refuge in the Lord of the dawn from the evil of created things or the mischief that Satan makes with created things. Food we need but Satan now is seeking to control the production of food to kill us by what we eat and what we drink and what we think. » CONTINUE
