    In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.


    I thank Allah for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad whom I see as “The Eternal Leader of The Nation of Islam,” Meaning that what God has given to him for us now, in the past, and what will come down in the future: We will be feeding on it and growing from it for a long, long time. I’m going to acquaint you as best I can with the Greatness of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, and why we are suffering today because we rejected him. We didn’t pay adequate attention to him; as a result, today, we are suffering great loss. Hopefully there’s time for us to reverse the loss.

    The headline of the October 18, 2011 (Vol. 31, No. 2) edition of The Final Call newspaper reads, “We Are At War!” Think about that: If you don’t see that we are “at war,” then you must be raised in consciousness so that you can participate in The War, because The War is for Our Survival!

    Farrakhan As a people, we have to survive. And if we are ignorant in a Time like this, then our ignorance will be the means of our destruction.

    We are at war against forces within ourselves, and forces outside of ourselves, that keep us relegated to The Condition of poverty and want.

    To whom shall we look for “jobs” and “justice”? Do you think that our president, as desirous as he may be, can provide enough jobs for the millions of Americans that are unemployed, and our millions too? Does not history teach us that if jobs are needed by Caucasian people, and Hispanic people and Black people and Native Indigenous people, who will get the jobs first? If they are producing the jobs, then they’re going to produce the jobs first for their people. And if you are lucky, one, two, three or four, or maybe even a few more, might come our way.

    But History is teaching us, because we have been crying out for this for years: “Jobs! We need jobs! We must have jobs!” We agree with you. But you are acting like “children”—little beggars—who are asking somebody else to do something for us that, with Right Guidance and The Will, we could do all of this for ourselves and earn the respect of the entire world!

    We’re going to have to get up from where we are and go to work in order to survive and in order for us to prepare a future for our children.

    In Message To The Blackman in America, pages 56-57, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad stated nearly 50 years ago: “As a people we must become producers, and not remain consumers and employees. We must be able to extract raw materials from the earth, and manufacture them into something useful for ourselves. This would create jobs in production. We must remember that without land there is no production. “The surplus of what we produce we would sell. This would develop a field of commerce and trade as other free and independent people whose population is less than that of the 20 million”at that time, but nearly 50 million today“so-called Negroes who are dependent in America.”

    ??????????????


    man he can talk all that talk he wants to but
    back in the 60s and early 70s;
    the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammed promoted and fostered the Black nationalist self emploment of tens of thousands in every major city in the US,

    not by selling newspapers and bean pies, but

    as teachers,
    acountants,
    dry cleaners,
    electricians,
    plumbers,
    grocery store clerks,
    restuaranters,
    bakers,
    barbers,
    beauticians,
    morticians,
    airplane pilots for air shipping,
    farmers(rural),

    and these Black businesses inspired other Blacks to also keep and maintain and open new businesses!

    In peace!!!!!

    Maybe if the Minister would give up some of those mega-millions he got to invest in brother and sister opening franchise/ small businesses , folks would have some jobs.

    Asian and African immigrant millionaires come here with a motto;
    "I will make myself rich by making my people wealthy"

    “What’s missing is the knowledge of self; if you don’t know yourself, you can’t love yourself,” the minister said, adding that “self-love brings about self-determination, and if we had that, we could start turning things around.”
