Personally I don't put much weight on it. I recently had an encounter with a follower of Nation of Islam on the street and he was very rude to me. For him it represents Africa and African American's.

So I guess it’s a race thing?

Let me tell you a few things my fellow brethren, the Nation of Islam, yes today it means nothing to me, but let me inform you of a few facts, the Nation of Islam appeared at a time when the African man in America, the descendants of slaves in America called African-Americans were in a need of redemption and hope. They were in a need of rejuvenation. They were in a need of faith. They needed a vehicle with which to cling to at that time so they could once again remember who they are, where they come from and where they are going as an African people in America. It was the Nation of Islam that gave them that regardless of their cookoo ideas about religious doctrines in relation to Islam proper. Do not forget my fellow brothers that even Sunnism is a corruption of the faith that Imam Ali (عليه السلام) bestowed upon thee through the house he left behind. the black man, since I am black and African, needed to connect with his God and his soul. I know how it feels to hate oneself because the anti-black reality that has been created around you has been created so that one may destroy himself and everybody around him so long as they are not white but black. Make no mistake, institutionalised racism is not about calling a person a "[Edited Out]" or a in my beautiful native South Africa a "kaffir" and leaving it there. It is not just emotional or physical but psychological as well. psychological so that the white man no longer has to physically beat you himself or call you names so that YOU AS A BLACK MAN CAN BEAT YOURSELF DOWN ALMOST LITERALLY AND BEAT OTHER BLACK PEOPLE DOWN NOT JUST PHYSICALLY BUT IN THE WAY BLACK PEOPLE RELATE TO EACH OTHER.

White people call Africans in my country "monkeys" and they are right to call us "monkeys" because they were so successful in breeding self-hate in almost each and every one of us that we believe that the meaning of life is to emulate the white man in everything we do. We speak like him, we dress like him, we want to drive the same cars as him and we believe as long as the white man is near us everything will be okay. 

This is the type of rubbish that the Nation of Islam intended to destroy in the African-American because there are lot of similarities between African-Americans and Africans of South Africa. Malcolm X once said to the black man: YOU ARE DEAD TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF YOUR God, YOU ARE DEAD TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF YOURSELVES AND THAT THE WHITE MAN HAS MADE DEAD SOULS OUT OF YOU AND I. Which is true and you know what the white man has succeeded from here to the great American empire. Everything you see with Black Americans today is exactly what the Nation of Islam fought against. The original nation of Islam. It appeared at a time when the likes OF martin luther king was telling the American Negro to TURN THE OTHER CHEEK TO THE BRUTALITY OF THE WHITE MAN. WHEN MALCOLM X WAS TELLING AMERICAN NEGROES THAT: BROTHER, IF ANYONE LAYS A HAND ON YOU, YOU BEST SEE TO IT THAT HE NEVER LAYS HIS HAND ON ANYONE ELSE AGAIN. The nation of Islam at the time of Malcolm X gave the African-American pride and knowledge about himself irrespective of their deviations from true Islam.

It made the black man a MAN AGAIN SO ALHAMDULILAH FOR THE NATION OF Islam AND FOR MALCOLM X. you must watch the movie directed by Spike Lee featuring DENZEL WASHINGTON AS MALCOLM X FOR A CLEAR PERSPECTIVE. it even saved his life. Malcolm X was a criminal, a derelict, a victim of the american social order before landing in prison and being redeeemed by the honourable Elijah Muhammad. KNOW THE TRUTH!

That's what it seems like to me too. Although the man I encountered in the street seemed mentally unstable.

I didn't know that about The Nation of Islam. Sometimes I wonder what the world would be like without oppression if your people and my people did not suffer in Africa, America, Europe and the Indian Subcontinent. We need to think outside the box and stop emulating ourselves on popular culture and media because those are their latest tools to control and condition us.

I like Denzel Washington as an actor. Although I am not so much of a fan of Spike Lee. I know he worked with Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson so it's a little difficult for me to take him seriously as a man with serious political ideas. However I'm sure his documentary on Malcolm X must be very interesting.

No no brother, its not a documentary. ITS A MOVIE! AND DENZEL is so brilliant you would think that he is Malcolm X. Malcolm X later left the Nation of Islam. He was a man of truth, he died for it. He went on the hajj to Mecca, he was shocked meeting Muslims who were white, meeting white Muslims who didnt have any prejudice whatsoever that the whole experience of circling the black rock of Ibrahim (عليه السلام) with Muslims from Africa, India as well as I guess chechnya and bosnia Muslims with blonde hair and blue eyes made him come back home to America and leave the Nation of Islam. HE no longer believed that hating the white man was the answer and came to regret his words of hate against every white person. They killed him. Both the Nation of Islam and the FBI cooperated in killing him because unity is a threat to those with power. I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT HAD MALCOLM X lived long enough to discover Shia Islam AND Imam Ali (SALAWAT) HE WOULD HAVE BEEN REVERTED TO THE TRUE FAITH. Malcolm X always inspired me to be a Muslim. because I don’t ever want to die for money or prestige. but anyday anytime anywhere I will die for the truth. because EL-HAJJ-MALIK EL SHABAZZ (the name he took after his pilgrimage) taught me that it is better to die for the truth rather than live for lies.

MALCOLM X'S letter from Mecca:

Never have I witnessed such sincere hospitality and true brotherhood as is practiced by people of all colours and races here in this ancient Holy land, the home of Ibrahim, Muhammad and all the other Prophets of the Holy scriptures (MAY PEACE BE UPON THEM)

For the past week I have been humbled by the graciousness displayed by all people from all races.

I have been blessed to visit the holy city of Mecca, I have been blessed to make the seven circuits around the ka'aba, I drank water from the well of ZAM ZAM, I ran seven times between the hills of mount Al-Safa and Al-Marwah. I prayed at the ancient city of Mina and prayed on Mount Arafat.

There were tens of thousands of pilgrims from all over the world. They were from all colours, from blue-eyed blondes to black Africans.But we were all displaying the same rituals, displaying a spirit of unity and brotherhood that my experiences in America had led me to believe that such unity was impossible between white and non-white. 

AMERICA NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND Islam, BECAUSE THIS IS THE ONE RELIGION THAT SOLVES THE RACE PROBLEM. Through out my travels in the Muslim world I have met and talked to, prayed with, eaten from the same plate and drunk water from the same glass with people whose hair was the most blonde I have ever seen and whose eyes were the bluest I had ever seen and whose skin colour was the whitest I had ever seen. The prejudice was removed from their minds by the religion of Islam and never did I experience true brotherhood and sincerity irrespective of skin colour.

You may be shocked by these words but on this pilgrimage what I have seen and experienced has forced me to re-arrange some of my thought patterns and throw away some previously held conclusions. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A MAN WHO ACCEPTED FACTS AND FACE NEW REALITIES AS THEY UNFOLDED. 

I have always kept an open mind which is necessary to the flexibility that must go hand in hand with every form of INTELLIGENT SEARCH FOR TRUTH.

We were trully all the same (brothers) because their belief in ONE God had removed the white from their minds, the white from their behaviour and the white from their attitude. Each hour in the HOLY LAND enables me to have greater spiritual insights into what is happening in America between black and white. The American Negro can never be blamed for his racial anger because he is only reacting to four hundred years of conscious intentional racism on the part of white america.

I believe from my experiences with them that the younger generation of whites will see the handwriting on the walls and many of them will turn to the spiritual path of the truth OTHERWISE AMERICA WILL DESTROY ITSELF THROUGH RACISM JUST AS GERMANY DESTROYED ITSELF THROUGH KILLING JEWS.

ALL PRAISE IS DUE TO Allah, THE LORD OF ALL THE WORLDS BUT THE MISTAKES ARE MINE AND MINE ALONE.

�ت�ج� تص��ر� برا� �son of ,malcolm x��

Salam/hi his son completed his job but martyred mysteriously in Mexico

"If you want to know anything, then go back to the source," he told us, which is what we did, reviewing his long, twisted journey to Mecca.

As the oldest male heir to Malcolm X, Shabazz was born into a fascinating family. Media accounts have documented him as a troubled young man, shuttled back and forth among family members. Like his grandfather, he spent time on the streets and in jail. Like his grandfather, it was behind bars that he finally regained his faith and found himself fully immersed in Islam. Shabazz explains that while he was born into Islam, he finally began to fee its presence in his life during his most recent incarceration period. While quarantined in Attica Correctional Facility in New York, Shabazz explained that he "didn't have any hygiene supplies, I didn't have any reading materials."

But it was during his time in Attica that he met another prisoner — half Mexican, half Iranian — who identified himself as a Shia Muslim. "He asked me 'Are you in a lie? Or are you a real Muslim?' " Shabazz recalled. He answered that he was a real Muslim. "He gave me reading materials to read in my cell."

According to Shabazz, this was the man who discussed and poured over religious texts with him during their time together, and the one who inspired him to convert from the Sunni sect to Shia.

"I was raised a Sunni, everyone in my family was Sunni," he said. There is much antagonism between the two sects, so his conversion caused a backlash akin to when his grandfather left the Nation of Islam in 1964 and declared himself a Sunni, which let to his assassination the following year.

Once he returned to the United States, Shabazz decided to follow his grandfather's footsteps and make the pilgrimage to Mecca, where, he said "the air felt different." But he also explained how the people he saw on the pilgrimage seemed less willing to impose their rules on Americans.

"It seems like they have more fear [of] Americans than they do for Allah," he said. "If they know you're American, I don't know what it is, but they leave you alone."

Shabazz said he had the experience of a lifetime and proved his intense vigor for the Islamic faith. He circled the Kaa'ba, and despite swollen feet and a bad case of the flu, carried on his pilgrimage like a true believer. "I never saw this many people at one place at one time. It was much more of a struggle than I had anticipated," he said. "But everything was earned."



When word spread of Shabazz's conversion, various Sunni leaders and community members expressed their discomfort with what he had done. He explained that many people wrote to him asking him, "How could you become a Shia?"

After his release, Shabazz decided to move to Syria to study at an Islamic institute and then spent the following eight months teaching English to children. "I came home from prison [and] I wanted to get away for a little while," he explained.

Nation of Islam aren’t Muslim by faith. They hold some Muslim principles only.

And they engaged in killing many Black American Muslim thinkers than the CIA did. They also engaged in terrorizing and doing immoral actions in the Black community in order for people to fear opposing them or having different thoughts.

I can sense that. I don’t understand why people are so fascinated by western people such as Malcolm X especially Muslims.

Nation of Islam is not a Muslim sect, but a hybrid religion largely based on Islam. As I understand their teachings, they are racist, but I've only met a few followers and they were friendly to me. One woman even invited me to attend mosque services with her. (Maybe she didn't realize I am white, or maybe they are less racist than I've been told.) 

It started as more of a social movement in response to years of oppression than as a pure religion. I suspect their views have become more moderate over time, as the social situation has evolved.

Malcolm X was killed by Nation of Islam. And he is a great Muslim leader that had the most difficult job in the world probably.

Nation of Islam was created by the FBI to try to curb the influence of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his movement.

Basically split up the black community.
