Reader comment on item: How Elijah Muhammad Won

Submitted by Omega Allah (United States), May 12, 2012 at 15:26

The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad never presented himself as a prophet. On the contrary, he told us that he was a messenger, i.e., one who came with a message for a specific people (the Blackman) in North America. Moreover, The Messenger never claimed any devinity and always presented himself as a man sent to deliever a message. Therefore, any shortcoming on his behalf, fall well within the accepted parameters of a normal person who made normal mistakes. Surely Allah will weigh all of his deeds, and I am certain that the scales of justice will confirm that The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad was the greatest blackman to walk the face of the earth during the 20th century. Indeed, there would be no Blackman," if The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad had not existed, for it was he would told us that the Blackman was not a negro. I was there during the 60s as a member of the Almight Five Percent Nation, and I am here now as a member of the Almight Five Percent Nation, almost 50 years later. I know the truth inasmuch as I was on the inside of both groups. I can say with confidence that when the smoke clears The Almight Five Percent Nation, as well as, the Nation of Islam will be here long after Christianity has been dismissed as a fraud. Finally, even as I write this, Christianity falters as people everywhere are beginning to see through the lies which it spews forth.
