    Does anyone know about the 5 percenters? I've heard of them, but I'm not sure I understand what they stand for in their beliefs?

    Thanks Bootzey,

    I was wondering what it meant to be a 5%...And does it have anything to do with the Muslim religion?

    Peace,

    5 Percenters, which are now known mostly as the Nation of Gods and Earths are not religious. Our connection to the Nation of Islam is extremely limited at best.

    The sister asked you "does it have anything to do with the Muslim religion?"

    Did did not ask concerning a connection with the Nation of Islam.

    Peace,

    Really? Are you serious? You imply a difference where I see none existing.

    "A Muslim is one who believes in One God. It is forbidden by Allah (God) for us to believe in or serve anyone other than Himself as a God. He warns us not to set up an equal with Him, as He was the One in the beginning from whom everything had it's beginning and will be the One God from which everything will end." - Elijah Muhammad, Message to the Blackman in America page 73-74.

    Anything else?

    Peace

    Can you make a point without trying to get personal?

    Did you notice the sister asked concerning the RELIGION of Islam?

    Did you explain the difference between the RELIGION of Islam as distinct from the CULTURE of Islam?

    "Anything else"?

    Yes but I will just wait till you explain what makes you distinct from those you refer as '85'ers who themselves are distinct from Jive Percenters and Fake Fivers.

    By the way, Elijah Muhammad did not refer to himself as GOD or Allah which means he did not set himself up as equal with Him (GOD) so your quotation is not right and exact in reference to the specific question asked.

    Fine I will answer the questions asked, even though it was asked months ago....

    Allah's 5% Nation of Gods and Earths is NOT a religion. It is a culture.

    Happy?
