As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Beloved and Beautiful Sisters!
Our Beloved Messenger, The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad (May the Peace and the Blessings of Allah Forever Be Upon Him) vehemently stressed the importance of The So-Called Negroes DOING SOMETHING FOR SELF! We will never be considered as a free people, equal with the civilized societies of the earth, unless we qualify ourselves and do and have the same things those people have.
We must instill in our children the desire to DO SOMETHING FOR SELF, so they will not be like their parents – dependent upon the slavemaster for everything they need. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad (May the Peace and the Blessings of Allah forever be upon him) taught us in MESSAGE TO THE BLACKMAN IN AMERICA (page 39): “My people should get an education which will benefit their own people and not an education adding to the “storehouse” of their teacher.”
Our children must develop an entrepreneurial spirit and free themselves of the idea of getting an education just to get a high-paying job. They must be instructed to think in terms of The Black Nation as a whole. That is the only way we can build a Nation. If each person only thinks in terms of self, then we will not progress.
Many of our youth are captivated by sport and play. They want to grow up to be a rapper or an athlete or marry a rapper or athlete. If everyone is making music or playing sports, who is going to build our factories? Who is going to cultivate our farms? Who is going to make our shoes and clothes? If we don’t lead and guide our children to think in terms of careers that will be productive then we will forever be dependent on the devil (whiteman).
An excellent way to expose your children to the idea of becoming producers, as opposed to consumers, is to schedule a factory tour. So they can bear witness to productivity in action. Factory Tours USA has a listing of all of the corporations that offer public tours of their facilities. I have scheduled a tour for my family of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and “The Los Angeles Times” Newspaper. Those were the only two nearby that are conducive to building a Nation. The rest were wastes of time like beer and candy factories. When choosing a tour, make sure you keep Nation-Building in mind. The Possibilities Are Endless!
