    Nation of Islam-what is it all about?

    Hey guys,
    recently, I had this eye opening conversation with a girl who is a believer in NOI..and i must admit, i could not identify to a single issue that she told me about..being a muslim and all...what she told me...on the risk of sounding like an ignorant...it sounded more liek an anti slavery, give blacks their rites..black supremacy...black this black that rather than a musalmaan thing that they believe in...liek black ppl will be resurrected before anyone else...and that (nauzubillah)God appeared in the Person of Master W. Fard Muhammad,the long-awaited "Messiah" of the Christians and the "Mahdi" of the Muslims...
    I plead ignorance in this issue, but considerign that a majority of the muslims of america perscribe to the Nation of Islam than to Islam itself...its very distrubing to me...so could anyone shed some concise, short insight on this topic?

    it started as a black nationalist movement in 1920s.

    founder was Elijha Muhammad, now it has change
    Elijha Muhammad was told by ford (which according to him was Allha) that Eljha Muhammad 's seventh child will be a boy and will later lead the nation of Islam.

    His seventh son converted to true Islam, denied his father as a prophet and criticize his adultrtrious affairs. Members of Nation of Islam didnt wanted him to become the leader but elijha muhammad said that NO he would be the one to lead.

    and today Wallac Muhmmad (a true muslim and son of Elijha muhammad) is leading nation of islam. It is still a black nationalist movement but it has denied all previous belifs and are true followers of prophet Muhammad.

    Other sons of Elijha Muhammad still follow their fathers beliefs.


    I have met the leader of Nation of Islam Wallac Muhammad three times, he is always surrounded by security gueards and memebrs of his nation but still a very nice and modest person.

    To have an insight on the Nation of Islam's role in civil war, leading black america and contribution to iislam in united states you should read the biography of Maclom X or books of Thomas Pirir.

    I will get you more information on it later.

    What happens when we're dead? The irony is that all our questions will be answered after we die. We spend our whole life trying to figure out the truth and the only way we'll find out what it is, is to get hit by a bus. And the only comfort that religion offers is that God is driving that bus.


    All racists who are prepared to die for their contry, please do that now.

      Nation of Islam is 100% pure Racism, not a religion.
      Muslims are so good at dividing that they can divide the atom. If you see two Muslims, probably they belong to 3 parties.

        I know I am an ignorant fool but then who is Farrakhan? Is he at all associated with NOI? I have seen him on TV all decked up in white and have these black ladies sitting on the stage all dressed in white with real nice head dresses. Who are they? Any references and I can do the reading by myself.

            Its a strain of Islam, their views are racist, all whites are evil, Luis believes he is Jesus and so and so.

            When Malcom X went for haj he use to follow NoI but after what he observed during haj changed his views. He returned a very changed man he left NoI and joined mainstream Islam and apologized to the whites for his racist views.

              Thank you Pristine!
              Okay guys something really funny is going on!!
              I went to the site posted by Pristine. Click on resources and then NOI online study center. Then go to Islamic history. Look at Points 4 and 5 of the Index. They take you to the Ahemddiya site and all about Mirza. Any clues? I never knew that NOI had any connection to Ahemddiyas.

                I am not sure if i have spelled his name correctly or not.
                But he is the son of Elijha Muhammad and current leader of The Nation of ISlam.

                He have denied his father's prophecy, racist beliefs and now practices and preaches sunni Islam.

                  Are majority of Muslims in America, members of Nation of Islam? I don't know the stats but this statement just doesn't seem right to me.

                    ROFL!!!!!!!

                    Their entire "Islamic History" page is just a Ahmediyya website about Ahmediyya history opening in a frame!!!!

                    What idiot designed the NOI site?

                      mAd_ScIeNtIsT and Abdail;

                      It was started as a black nationalist movement , who believed in black supermacy and had racist views.

                      but its not like that anymore, all those theories have been denied by Elijha Muhammad's son. who is currently leading NOI.

                      They are sunni muslims and nationalists. and are working to improve the conditions of black americans but are not racist anymore.

                      I have heard the speeches of their leader, he preaches equality and peace like all other imams.

                      But some followers of nation of nation of islam have sticked to the teachings of Elijha Muhammad. majority had'nt.

                        accurate spelling of his name is "Wallace Dean Muhammad".

                          Louis Farrakhan is best known today as the head of the Nation of Islam. The Nation of Islam advocates black separatism along with some of the practices and beliefs of Islam. One of its main goals is for blacks to attain self-sufficiency. Farrakhan has been highly criticized as a racist and is thought to be anti-Semitic. Farrakhan has sparked more criticism in recent years, particularly from the U.S. Government, because of his "world friendship tour." During the tour he visited several countries run by dictators.


                          Farrakhan was born Louis Eugene Wolcott in New York City. He grew up in Boston and became a nightclub singer in his early twenties. He was known as "Calypso Gene" in those days. He joined the Nation of Islam through the encouragement of Malcolm X and changed his name to Louis X. (He later changed his name again to Abdul Haleem Farrakhan.) He rose quickly in the Nation of Islam because of his speaking and singing talents. When the split occurred between Malcolm X and Elijah Muhammad, the leader of the Nation of Islam, Farrakhan became increasingly critical of Malcolm X. He later admitted to helping create the atmosphere that led to the assassination of Malcolm X. Farrakhan formed a new Nation of Islam in the 1970s after Muhammad's son, Wallace Muhammad, changed the name and the purpose of the original organization.


                          Wallace Muhammad, the current leader follows the suni islam .
                          Elijah Muhammad died in 1975 and was succeeded by his son Wallace Muhammad, who proved much quieter and more moderate than his father. At Wallace Muhammad's invitation Farrakhan moved to Chicago to work in the movement's headquarters. Soon Wallace Muhammad began to pursue a program of moderation for the movement, abandoning its antiwhite rhetoric (and even admitting whites to membership) and building bridges to the larger world from the Islamic community. That program resulted in a movement that today functions as a relatively conventional expression of Islam.

                              secret obsession you wrote that NOI has undergone major reform, as in they arent racsist etc etc, but piqued by what my NOI believing friend told me, I spoke to a couple of other girls and they are pretty much as racist as one can get..it seems almost like they are black KKK members..and on the risk of sounding like a racist my self..they looked like the major sermon they receive is that of total world submission to the blacks of the world...one of the girls is a 'sister' at teh local NOI and she told me that the claim that ahmedis and qadiyanis have about their Hazrat Mirza is almost identical to the claim they have about Elijha Muhammad..and as expected, they believe that he was the Messiah...and that is still the offical banner of NOI....

                              plus, i checked out the link by pristine adn its disturbing to find that they quote the Bible, Scriptures with as much ease as they do the Quran...that bugs me..the two religions are quite distinctly apart within themselves eventhough they are abrahamic religions..

                              muni the statistic i quoted, i think i heard on tv...i think it was said that about 35% of muslims in america are NOI members...and since all sects of Islam are counted under the banner of one islam, the NOI is considered a part of Islam (<-i hope that sentence made sense)
