NO ONE WILL DESTROY THE REMINDER by Ahmeer Majied
Printed in the Chicago Crusader 08/22/2020.
July 9th marked the one-year anniversary since the passing of Nation of Islam archivist, historian and communications guru Munir Muhammad, he was 69. His transition sent shockwaves throughout the Muslim community, the city of Chicago, the country and many parts of the world. Known affectionately as Brother Munir, Mr. Muhammad along with his biological brother Halif Muhammad and Shahid Muslim founded the organization C.R.O.E. an acronym for the Coalition for the Remembrance of Elijah Muhammad in 1987. C.R.O.E. is an archival library and information center that houses an extensive collection of historical memorabilia pertaining to the life and work of Nation of Islam leader the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. For the past 33 years the group has compiled volumes of Muhammad Speaks newspaper periodicals, audio /video recorded speeches, press conferences, radio broadcast and private meetings held at dinner table of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad.
As the face of the organization Munir Muhammad worked passionately and tirelessly to inform anyone whom he came into contact with about the significant contributions and greatness of his leader, teacher and guide. Traveling around the globe whether interviewing heads of state on the continent of Africa or capturing the attention college students in a lecture hall at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Munir Muhammad was always in the mode of educating people and chronicling history. From 1994 to 2019 Mr. Muhammad served as Executive Producer and host of C.R.O.E. TV Productions, with two signature programs Muhammad and Friends and The Munir Muhammad Show. In 1998 Munir spearheaded an effort to convert an old tavern Fuzzy’s Den into a state of art television studio production facility. In the span of twenty-five years Munir Muhammad conducted over 10,000 interviews, with a wide array of guest from all walks of life. Guest have included singer songwriter Smokey Robinson, actors Harry Lennix, Mario Van Peeples, John Rogers CEO of Ariel Capital Mutual Funds, Rev Jesse L Jackson, Min. Louis Farrakhan ,former U.S. Senator Carol Mosley Braun ,former Chicago mayors Richard M. Daley and Rahm Emmanuel, current Mayor Lori Lightfoot during tenure as federal prosecutor during Operation Silver Shovel , NNPA Chairperson Dorothy Leavell, former ABC 7 journalist Charles Thomas and a cadre of elected officials . Before Facebook live, podcast, and YouTube channels there was a man who created an independent platform for information and news to be accessed independent of mainstream media, introducing a new generation and re-acquainting an older generation to the teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad unadulterated. For that alone let us never forget Munir Muhammad a trailblazer and reminder.
Truth by The Honorable Elijah Muhammad from Our Saviour Has Arrived
I am well aware of my disputers who dispute without knowledge and who are followers of the devils for certain privileges. They claim to be representatives of God and Jesus Whom they claim to be the Son of God, but they are licensed, ordained, and sent by the devils (God-sent men are licensed by the world). This class which loves to be revered and honored by the people whether God has any respect for them or not are really agents of the slavemasters the devils). They are secret persecutors and murderers of the prophets of God and will say: “If they had been in the days of the prophets, they would have been their followers and would not have opposed them.” Yet they persecute me and my followers and all who teach the truth for the same reason that the enemies did to the prophets of old.
It was special privileges that Pharaoh offered the “enchanters” to oppose Moses as being a liar. “He promised them that they would be drawn near to him,” (Pharaoh); Holy Qur’an (7:113, 114). It is the nearness (friendship) of the white race that the majority of the so- called Negro preachers seek, and not the nearness, love, and friendship of God. They openly confess that in their position (licensed and missioned by the white race to preach according to their likings), they cannot preach the truth if that truth is against the white race. Their followers’ (church members) burdens are ever made grievous to carry because of the love and fear of their enemies by the preachers. They call preaching the truth hatred. The source from which my teaching springs, or fountain from which I drink, is the same source from which Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus drank – Almighty Allah (God) in whom you probably do not believe; as the disbelievers of the above – mentioned prophets did not believe in those prophets’ truth.
The early man (original man) knew the earth’s revolutions, the circulation of blood, and the existence of microbes. The only man or people who were late in acquiring such knowledge was the white race which is the only late or new race we have on our planet. “Adherence to the unknown is a throw-back to anyone or nation.” This is the number one holdback to the so-called American Negro. Without the knowledge of self or anyone else, or the God of their salvation they are lost, strictly adhering to or following those who preach and represent a mystery God (unknown), but yet charge that mystery God with getting a son out of wedlock and of waiting 4,000 years to produce His Son to give His made people (the Adamic race) the religion called Christianity. This is the gravest charge that could be made against the all-wise, all-knowing, and all-powerful God. And they say: “The beneficent God has taken to Himself a Son.” Certainly this is an abominable assertion; the heavens may almost be rent thereat, and the earth cleave asunder, and the mountains fall down in pieces that they (the Christians’ preachers) ascribe a Son to the beneficent God. And it is not worthy of the beneficent God that He should like to Himself a Son. “There is no one in the heavens and the earth, but will come to the beneficent God as a servant,” Holy Qur’an (19:88-93).
An Open Letter By Cynthia X (Williams) of New Jersey
ASA Bro. Farrakhan:
I am troubled and deeply pained. Imagine if a Believer was knocked unconscious in 1994 and woke up in 2009? Imagine that same Believer slowly re-acclimating oneself to the Messenger by listening to Theology of Time series, watching the interview of the Messenger by Irv Kupcinet and Buzz Anderson, then studying the Messenger’s 1958 Birth of a Savior.
Now imagine that same Believer seeing the current edition of the Final Call “Can America Win” featuring a white soldier holding a gun on the front page.
Bro., Where is Elijah?
Ohhh, I found him: Page 19 Prayer in Islam; Page 28 Fasting and Eating Right Foods. Is this really adequate? Is this enough Teaching for the Snoop Dogs, Foxy Browns, and the remainder of our Dumbed Down Black populace?
I saw something on YouTube where you decried anyone making you into a punk. Well, why depict Elijah as a old relic of the civil rights era; as if Elijah is relevant only to topics of food and prayer;
your paper just punk’d the Messenger of Allah.
Where are Elijahs Teachings about the reality of God Allah, Who Came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad in the Final Call?
Where are Elijahs Teachings about the Original Man and the Colored Man/Yacub’s Grafted Devil?
Have you and your followers become ashamed of Elijah? Why do you have “followers”? Aren’t the people whom you minister to suppose to belong to Master Fard Muhammad?
Why have you not kept Elijah out Front as all the Ministers were instructed in 1965? The instruction hasn’t changed. You do still take instructions from Elijah don’t you?
Our people are more depraved, savage, and vulnerable than ever.
You self appointed yourself to lead the NOI after pledging allegiance to the Hypocrite and Defamer Wallace Deen.
The Believers forgave your Hypocracy when you pledged to re-build the NOI with our help. Instead of manifesting the Messengers characteristic Humbleness and Fire (that consumes false teachings and the Liar), I heard you say you are Wise. I listened to you say, you were a General and had manuevered to keep us from being slaughtered.
You make yourself a rival with Master Fard Muhammad by using such language. The Scientists saw no end to His Wisdom, so to style yourself as Wise and a General there must be evidence to support this, but as the Messenger taught, what would another one teach you? We only need to echo the Teachings and practice the Program.
It is only the Son of Man who controls who lives and who perishes.
All you had to do was be a faithful and parrot of the Teachings of the Messenger. This is not an insult but a high compliment to anyone who maintains fidelity to the Teachings from God Himself against the onslaught of the forgetful, silly, and jealous orthodox muslims, and the Devil.
The Lake of Fire By: The Honorable Elijah Muhammad
The following editorial can be found in the book, Birth of A Saviour.
Think over how much you have been preached to like Jerusalem. The Jesus said he did all that work in Jerusalem, and that even if Sodom and Gomorrah had had that kind of work they would have believed and repented long ago. I say the same thing about Chicago, and Detroit: For 40 years I have taught the people of these two cities enough for them to walk into Heaven. Regardless to how high it is or how wide it is, they should be able to walk in it because they have been taught everything. They should be scientists at the Knowledge of Truth.
But just think over the prophecy. When the time came the people still were in doubt and it overtook them at a time they knew not. This is Truth.
That is the way it was with Noah and Lot. When the time came they didn’t have anybody so he had to turn them all over to destruction. Think over the hundreds of thousands of our people in Chicago to be turned over to destruction. If you are not a believer you won’t go any place but to that.
Don’t think I am going to try to defend you and you are at home asleep instead of at the Temple. I am the one.
I have said that I am the One who will be here to do this kind of work. You will say like the disbelievers said to the prophets in those days. They begged the prophets to let them go along with them but they weren’t worthy. Look at all of the converts Lot thought he had. The angels kept telling him they would cut the number down if he could bring it up. He kept running back thinking that he had more followers than that five or ten or fifteen. He thought he could get that before he would get out of the door but he was not able to do it. He just was able to bring before the Angels four or five.
The Bible and the Holy Qur’an speak of a very small number coming from you out of millions. The Bible says two out of a family and then it says in another place that the people would be very small in number, that believe. And it looks like that.
What’s holding you back? “Oh, I don’t believe nothing is going to take place like what he’s talking about. He may be talking just for money.” Well if we are, your money would not be any good if these things come to pass and they are going to come to pass.
A Man like Me who has been wrestling with your disbelief for years gets disgusted sometimes. We are having some bad, bad, bad troubles in this part of the world as you read and as you hear over the radio. There is suffering. Don’t think you are immune to it. The Holy Qur’an says you will hear it coming from a distant place with its vehemence raging and roaring. It is on its way to bite Chicago. It will frighten you nearly to death when you see these things going on in America and in Chicago.
Chicago and many other cities of America will be treated like these that you are reading about and listening to. That same kind of trouble, or worse, will come here. I am like Jesus said after he had taught Jerusalem so long and so hard. He was disgusted. He got outside and looked back at her. “Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that killeth the prophets and stoned them that are sent unto thee. How often would I have covered thee as a mom covers her little chicks with her wings? I only say if thou wouldst believe, but thou now art left desolate. There will be no more prophets after me. I was your last one. Woe to Jerusalem. You hate prophets. You don’t like them. “That is an awful pitiful crime”. In about 70 years another king came in and sacked the city taking away the independence of the Jews. These things will soon come to America.
Then what will you do who are depending on the devil Caucasian here? You won’t have anything to look forward to. Some of you are loving the devil Caucasian so well and so sincerely that you don’t want to bear Me call him a devil. But you just stick around who are loving him. Him and you both will be pushed into the lake of fire together.
“And I saw,” said the Revelations, “the devil and those who follow him pushed into a lake of fire and brimstone.” Don’t think these people are lying just to fright you into believing. No. It is coming to pass. Prophets don’t lie. The people call them liars but they don’t lie.
The sun is going down in the West. This Teaching will raise a power Sun of Truth from this part of our planet by Me whom Allah (God) raised up among you. No more will you look towards the East after this for the light of Truth to come. The Light of Truth which the scientists of the East were not able to give you will come from the west.
We are happy to have had the privilege to let the Word of truth drop into the heads of our people. We pray Allah that this Word will be multiplied into your hearts with the 30 or more million people of ours.
We are happy to say to those who have read these few words that we are your Brothers and Sisters and we want you in the Circle of Safety from a Saviour Who is well able to save you and Me.
Thanks to Master Fard Muhammad, Almighty God, for coming to save you and Me. The words that you have read of Him, please take them to heart. Go forth wherever you may go and tell others of your kind that the Saviour has arrived.
May the God of Truth, Power, Justice and Equality go with you until we meet as I say unto you, As-Salaam-Alaikum.
Elijah Muhammad Messenger of Allah
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad Denounces Jesse Jackson
WE are living in a GREAT DAY OF GOD AND MAN. Allah (God) now Desires to take for Himself to Reign over the nations of the earth.
There are two Gods. One god is the god of evil and the Other is the God of Righteousness and Justice. The nature of the two Gods is so much different from one another that it makes it impossible for one God to yield to the other God, because of their nature.
UNRIGHTEOUSNESS and injustice has triumphed over the people for the past six thousand (6,000) years. The unjust god was not one to give up his place for the God of Justice. Well, we cannot blame him since by nature he was made a god – a ruler. But his time is and his rule is up. He is now in time of the other God – the God of Righteousness and Justice. Who Will Rule the people in Righteousness, Freedom, Justice and Equality.
So this is a GREAT DAY – the passing away of one world and the coming in of another world. WE have suffered under the evil that the devil was made for. Up until this very minute he wants to do all the evil that he can do regardless to the Bible and the Holy Quran teaching that Allah (God) Will Reward him and me for every good act or good work.
EVERYTHING is being changed from the old to a new thing.
WE MUST QUALIFY FOR THE NEW.
The Benefit Party
WE HAD A BENEFIT PARTY, on Sunday, August 16, 1970, from 6:00 P.M. TO 9:00 P.M., at the SALAAM RESTAURANT, located at 8300 South Cottage Grove Avenue, Chicago, Illinois.
WE had a great time and there were great people in attendance. I want to say to all of you who attended and who gave $10.00 per plate on that day to help us to purchase an EDUCATIONAL CENTER and HOSPITAL for our sick and wounded Black People – that this work of building an EDUCATIONAL CENTER and HOSPITAL will also add to the employment among us. This was not over-looked by those who visited us last Sunday, August 16, 1970 and gave their $10.00.
AFTER LISTENING to the tape recording of the testimonial speeches made by these great Black Men of our Black society and of the Black Leaders in the political world – it was outstanding.
WE had a great number of these outstanding Black men at this BENEFIT PARTY. Among these great Black men were Alderman Metcalfe, Judge Alvin Turner, Warden Winston Moore of Cook County Jail, Mr. Leonard Weir of New York City, President of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF AFRO – AMERICAN POLICE and many others which space will not allow us to mention.
I sit and listen again and again to such wonderful words of credit and commendation of myself, and my followers, in what we are trying to do for the betterment of our Black People, by the Guidance of Allah (God), Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom Praises are due forever. It was so wonderful of the speakers, to speak so well and to give the muslims and myself such great credit for what Allah (God) is Guiding us to do. Andy they wish to help us even more.
OF all of the political speakers Alderman Metcalfe was the most outstanding speaker, although everyone spoke well. I do believe I can say this in truth all of the guest speakers spoke well except, Rev. Jesse L. Jackson. Rev. Jesse Jackson, according to the tape recording that I am listening to, seems to have been very careful that he do not give the Muslims a full credit for what we are doing in the Name of Allah and for our Black People. And Rev. Jesse Jackson is supposed to be a spiritual preacher and according to the tape recording he is a graduate from a Christian Seminary college for Preachers.
I WAS SURPRISED at so many things that he got around to without giving my followers and myself any credit. His subject was based upon what we should get together in doing, while in truth I am already doing that, by the help of Allah (God).
THERE is nothing that the Black Man can say against the start toward self that I am making. Each step that I am taking in the Name of Allah is most essential and he would admit this if he wanted to give the truth and the credit to the person.
I AM a spiritual teacher and I am also a commercial man for my followers. I am doing that which is predicted of me and my work in the Bible, by the prophets of the Bible. If you will take a minute or two to turn the pages of the Bible you will find that the Bible refers to me in two thirds (2/3) or more of its teachings.
I DO NOT want you to pat me on the shoulder unless the honor to me is from your heart. I will let my work do that and the God Who Sent Me.
REV. JESSE JACKSON destroyed everything that went with scripture, the theological teachings of the Bible and of the Seminary College. I have met with quite a few preachers who went to such schools to learn more about the meaning of the scripture. Of course their teacher who taught them is the enemy of righteousness. Therefore they were careful not to make you wise to the truth for they know that by nature the Black Man was made of truth.
REV. JESSE JACKSON goes on to say to us that Moses was a liar. I have never even heard an infidel call the Bible’s greatest prophet, Moses, a liar. If Rev. Jesse Jackson had studied the theology side of the scripture he would not have dared to call a prophet a liar.
REV. JESSE JACKSON said that Moses was lying when he said to God that he was not eloquent of tongue, to speak to Pharoah. There is no book on the history of Moses, by any writer of his or teaching that claims that Moses was able to speak well or eloquently. All of the writers agree that Moses could not speak an eloquent language.
REV. JESSE JACKSON claimed that when Moses said, he could not speak well, that this was a deliberate lie and that Moses had been a general in the Egyptian Army of the Egyptian government. I have never found a history that said that Moses was in the position of an officer before being called to prophethood and the mission of Moses.
MOSES WAS THE Messenger of God to ask Pharoah to let Israel go free from the Egyptian Bondage of them. Moses’s history, Moses’ tongue and language was protoypal of the speech of the Last Messenger of God, and that is myself.
MOSES did not tell God a lie. God knew Moses’ mouth. He did not answer Moses and say “Moses you are lying.” God did not say this to Moses. He knew that Moses spoke out of fear. God knew that Moses did not speak eloquently. Actually Moses was using his inability to speak well as an excuse to keep from going before Pharoah. Moses was afraid of Pharoah.
MOSES had grown up under Pharoah as the other Hebrews had. He felt insignificant to face the king of the country and he wanted to assure himself of the Power and the Protection of Jehovah. Behind him to do the job. He shows this in the words “Who shall I say Sent me? What will Pharoah Ask me? He may say, Who are you to come and ask me about letting Israel go free. Where will you take them? Where is your country?” As the Holy Quran teaches us that Pharoah said to Israel, “What does this man have? Where does he have a country to take you to?” He exalted himself that Egypt was his. That the rivers running at his feet was his. He also tells Israel, “I have a place, a country for you. This man has no place for you to go to, so why do you want to leave me?”
TO CALL a Divine Prophet a liar is to put yourself in the same position as the devil himself is in, for he is against God. Throughout the past this is what the devil has wanted to do – to make the people to think that the prophets raised up among the people were liars.
THINK OVER, a Reverend, a preacher of the Bible and the Christian religion, calling Moses a liar. The Christian religion recognizes Moses as the greatest prophet of the Bible.
FOR REV JESSE JACKSON to call Moses a liar, then in his way of thinking, all prophets are liars. A prophet cannot stand in the presence -in the Face of God and lie.
NO, EVEN in the history of Jonah -Jonah tried to escape going to Ninevah for he feared the Ninevites. He yet did not lie to God. But he did try to hide away on a ship – as we call it, as a stowaway. He admitted that he was trying to flee from accepting going to Ninevah because of his fear of the people. The same things was in Moses. He feared to go before Pharoah, as the Holy Quran has the history of Moses that he feared to come before Pharoah before he had gotten the proper Authority and Power behind that mission from Jehovah. But there was never a fault in Moses. It is the worse thing that we could to – to think that Allah (God) would Choose a liar for His Prophet or Messenger. To call the Prophet of God a liar is to call God Himself a liar.
THIS is why the Holy Quran teaches and warns us that disbelief in the prophets is Disbelief in the God Who Sent him. And to call the prophet a liar is to call God a liar and to do so, you are in for the chastisement from the God.
HOW can a Rev. Jesse Jackson, who calls himself a preacher of scripture and an educated man from the science school of scripture, called a seminary college, tell the people that so great a prophet, Moses was a liar.
MOSES was outstanding among prophets. Moses was an example or a prototype of the Last Messenger of Allah (God). Moses prophecied that the Last Messenger would be like himself. And Jesus affirmed this. Jesus said the same thing that Moses said. Theologians who write on the history of Moses and the prophecy made in Deu. 18:18 agree that they look forward for such a man as Moses.
LET ME ask Rev. Jesse Jackson, are not we under a similar or worse Pharoah than the Pharoah who lived in the time of Moses? The modern Pharoah in Washington, D.C. is worse for he is wiser than the Pharoah who lived in the time of Moses. He has more knowledge of how to make a more permanent slave. Therefore it takes a wiser Messenger to deal with such a wise slave master.
NO WONDER Rev. Jesse Jackson did not give me and my followers any credit for he does not believe in God’s prophets. According to him they are liars. And no one has heard of a seminary college student bearing me witness that I fulfill that which is written of me.
REV. JESSE JACKSON, you do not have to make mistakes. My name Elijah, is there in the Bible. It is written that I must come first before the great and terrible Day of God. I am here. I think that you are way off from understanding the time and the work and I would tremble if I would make a mistake and say what you say.
MAY BE there are scientists of the scripture who think that I should just dismiss you as not knowing the scriptures. But I cannot leave Rev. Jesse Jackson like that.
No. Rev. Jesse Jackson was very shrewd in trying to keep honor of the work that I am doing among the Black Man here on the South side and throughout America and the world, from coming from his mouth. It is because he longs for this honor himself, as the Bible teaches you, that the scribes desired to sit in Moses seat. This means that all the non-divinely authorized teachers wanted to have the honor that Moses had. This goes for all the preachers here in America. That is why they do not follow me. But I wait until such is flung on his face in disgrace and shame.
AGAIN AND AGAIN my followers and myself thank you for meeting with us at the party in such way. And the great guest speakers of our city government can rely on myself and my followers as doing the best for them when they run for public office as we desire to see on the South side of Chicago, every capable political Black man in office over his Black Brother. Every Black Policeman should be over his Black Brother here on the South Side. WE should even have a chance to run as Mayor of the City of Chicago.
A BLACK MAYOR in office in Chicago, Illinois, would bring an end to the war between citizen and citizen which is now going on and there would be more peace and enjoyment of peace. An army of authorized city officials are backed by their superiors to keep the shooting war going on between citizen and citizen. With a great Black Man as Mayor we would have a better future for the Black Man on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois. There would be more contentment between Black Brother and Black Brother.
I THANK you for visiting us and voicing your opinion of our work which we are doing in the Name of Allah (God) for the betterment of our Black Brothers and Sisters and their Black children. AS-SALAAM-ALAIKUM (Peace to you all).
Messenger of Allah,
to you all
