Climate Change and a Change of Worlds

The United States will experience more intense heat waves, changes in yearly temperatures, coastal flooding, and rising sea levels as Earth’s climate is now changing faster than at any point in the history of modern civilization, cautions a recent federally mandated study on climate change.

These environmental changes are primarily the results of human activities, according to authors of the Fourth National Climate Assessment Volume II, “Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States (NCA4).”

The impacts of climate change are already being felt across the country and climate-related threats to Americans’ physical, social, and economic well-being are rising, reports the 1,600-page document released by the United States Global Change Research Program.

Authors say the severity of future impacts will depend largely on actions taken to reduce greenhouse gases—gases that trap heat in the atmosphere near the Earth’s surface.

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

Guidance For Our President and Our Nation Pt 2

By The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

I'm honored to, by the Grace of Allah, share with you what Almighty God Allah has put on my heart for you, for America, for the world, and for whoever will be the president of the United States of America.

Back in the 1960s, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad wrote on “The National Election” that was taking place at that time, which makes up Chapter 8 of his monumental book The Fall of America (pages 36-37). I would like to quote from this chapter a few of his words which serve as the base for the guidance I bring to you today. He asked the question:

“How much good have the two parties (Republican and Democrat) done for us for the last century in the way of freedom, justice, and equality? Regardless of what party wins, the die is always set against us (the Black people in America). Injustice, crooked politics, and the breeding of corruption under crooked politics have been practiced ever since Adam to the present day rulers...” » CONTINUE

The Relationship Between Spiritual and Political Leadership

By The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

It is difficult to follow in the footsteps of a founder, because the founder is usually a charismatic human being through whom an idea is espoused that is bigger than the person who espouses it. The people, in their childlike way, are always attracted to the physical persona of a revolutionary who brings a revolutionary idea. When Allah (God) says to that revolutionary, “Your work is done,” the people feel a sense of loss or emptiness, due to their immaturity. They do not understand that their leader was not a haircut, a color, or a good-looking person. Their leader was the embodiment of an idea.

This is the way it was when Jesus went to the Father. The disciples felt lost, but Jesus was very wise in the way he taught them. Jesus said to them, “It is expedient for you that I go away.” It was necessary for the followers that their leader goes, so that the people who were addicted to personality could come to grips with the principles that made their leader who he was. If we are mature enough that we are not addicted to personality, then we are able to see the founder through our leaders, and realize that the founder has never been absent from us. » CONTINUE

Falsehood Cannot Undermine the Power of Truth.

By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

It seems as though that some of you are so upset by what I am saying, that you write disrespectful “tweets” and words, calling Louis Farrakhan: “Crazy Louie.” Of course, that is your prerogative to be cheap, and disrespectful, if that is what you feel. But I am in excellent company when you call me “crazy,” or a “mad man.”

When you refer to me as a “mad man” or as “crazy,” you put me in good company—in the company of The Prophets and Messengers of God who challenged the powers of their day with Truth. » CONTINUE

Holy Day of Atonement: Million Man March 23rd Anniversary Address in Detroit

By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

I'm honored and we are honored by your presence. We are honored to be in this place and we call it hallowed ground: hallowed ground because Detroit was chosen by the Son of Man, God In Person, to visit this city to start what is now known as The Nation of Islam. He came alone, He came by Himself. He used many aliases, one of them was Fard Ali. Fard meaning alone, singular, by Himself.

It is written that God would come but He was seen as a man treading the winepress alone. The Bible said He would come as a thief in the night. And, it says that if the master of the house had known in what hour the thief would appear, he would not suffer his goods to be taken. » CONTINUE

The Intensifying Universal Cry for Justice

By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

I am a student of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. The Qur’an says “every nation has received a messenger”—and my beloved Muslim family believes that the final messenger is Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. But when Prophet Muhammad came, the Western world had not been discovered, America had not been founded, slavery had not begun, and the Native American people, who are the owners of this country, had not met an enemy that deprived them and us of life, liberty and the pursuit of their happiness.

America is in need of a divine messenger and a warner from God. America is in need of someone to help her to keep her from a destructive fall. » CONTINUE

Righteous Men and Women Ready To Rule

By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful, I bear witness to the Oneness of God, the Oneness of His prophetic community and the Oneness of His People. There have been many religions, many sages and wise men and each one that taught us, taught us something good. But what God demands today is not a religion that is truth mixed with falsehood, not a religion that is somewhat good, but this is the time that God would give us One Faith, One Lord, and One Baptism.

I, too, with my brother believe in Jesus, the Christ. We say Muhammad but Muhammad is an Arabic name which means “one worthy of praise and praised much.” Jesus is worthy of praise, not the Jesus that they taught us of. Sorry. I know you love him, and you have every right to love Jesus; but it’s time that you get to know Him. Not as a White man hanging on your wall but a Black man born from your loins and from your womb. » CONTINUE

Address to the American Clergy Leadership Conference

By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

To my beloved brother, Rev. Cornelius C. Clark, who introduced me in a manner that brought tears to my eyes, gratitude to my heart for the beautiful expression of love for God and his Christ that you exemplified this morning.
The song was most appropriate.
And to my dear pastor, Rev. T.L. Barrett, I was not the least bit disturbed in Detroit at the Aretha Franklin funeral. I smiled for nine hours because those who saw the worst in others, I really saw the best in them. So I was not bothered by an apparent disrespect because my brother bishop he embraced me on that rostrum and ushered me to that seat and hugged me and we shared love between us. » CONTINUE

The Fall of America

By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

We are in love with our former slave-masters and their children. When people say, “I love everybody,” that is foolish because Allah (God) does not love everybody. He said He loved Jacob but He hated Esau. So if God is our example and He can love and hate, then do not be afraid to love and do not be afraid to hate. If you love God, then you hate the things that God hates and you love the things that God loves.
