The Most Important Flaw in Farrakhan's Faith

Reader comment on item: Louis Farrakhan Is Not a Muslim

Submitted by Osman (Egypt), Jun 28, 2002 at 15:08

The following quote is taken from "WHAT (black) MUSLIMS WANT" from the NOI website, URL: http://www.noi.org/information/program.html

WE BELIEVE that Allah (God) appeared in the Person of Master W. Fard Muhammad, July, 1930; the long-awaited "Messiah" of the Christians and the "Mahdi" of the Muslims.

Any Orthodox Muslim, like myself, knows that Allah has never taken and will never take the form of a person, and I believe no man has even seen Allah. I think that even Moses (PBUH), upon requesting to see Allah, quickly took back the request after a mountain turned into a pebble simply by Allah "revealing" himself to it.

Some other beliefs that make Farrakhan's ideas stand out and contrast drastically with Orthodox Islam is that he believes that he is part of a chosen race; Islam holds all races equally.
