PROPHET HUD [Hoo-d] (Peace Be Upon Him)

The people of ʿĀd were extremely powerful and wealthy and they built countless buildings and monuments to show their power. However, the ʿĀd people’s wealth ultimately proved to be their failure, as they became arrogant and forsook God and began to adopt idols for worship, including three idols named Samd, Samud and Hara. Hud, even in childhood, remained consistent in prayer to God. It is related through exegesis that Hud’s mother, a pious woman who had seen great visions at her son’s birth, was the only person who encouraged Hud in his worship. Thus, the Lord raised up Hud as a prophet for the ʿĀd people.

When Hud started preaching and inviting them to the worship of the One True God, and when he told them to repent for their past sins and ask for mercy and forgiveness, the ʿĀd people began to revile him and wickedly began to mock God’s message. Hud’s story epitomizes the prophetic cycle common to the prophets mentioned in the Qur’an and in the Bible: the prophet is sent to his people to tell them to worship God only and tells them to acknowledge that it is God who is the provider of their blessings. The Qur’an states:

11:50 And to ‘Ad (We sent) their brother Hud. He said: O my people, serve Allah, you have no god save Him. You are only fabricators.

11:51 O my people, I ask of you no reward for it. My reward is only with Him Who created me. Do you not then understand?

11:52 And, O my people, ask forgiveness of your Lord, then turn to Him, He will send on you clouds pouring down abundance of rain and add strength to your strength, and turn not back, guilty.

11:53 They said: O Hud, thou hast brought us no clear argument, and we are not going to desert our gods for thy word, and we are not believers in thee.

11:54 We say naught but that some of our gods have smitten thee with evil. He said: Surely I call Allah to witness, and do you, too, bear witness that I am innocent of what you associate (with Allah)

11:55 Besides Him. So scheme against me all together, then give me no respite.

11:56 Surely I put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord. There is no living creature but He grasps it by its forelock. Surely my Lord is on the right path.

11:57 But if you turn away, then indeed I have delivered to you that with which I am sent to you. And my Lord will bring another people in your place, and you cannot do Him any harm. Surely my Lord is the Preserver of all things.

11:58 And when Our commandment came to pass, We delivered Hud and those who believed with him with mercy from Us; and We delivered them from a hard chastisement.

11:59 And such were ‘Ad. They denied the messages of their Lord, and disobeyed His messengers and followed the bidding of every insolent opposer (of truth).

11:60 And they were overtaken by a curse in this world and on the day of Resurrection. Now surely ‘Ad disbelieved in their Lord. Now surely, away with ‘Ad, the people of Hud!

—Holy Qur’an, Sura (Chapter) 11 (Hud), Ayah (Verses) 50-60


PROPHET SALIH (SAW-lih) (Peace Be Upon Him)

Prophet Salih (PBUH) was sent as a Prophet to the Tribe of Bani Thamud (Tha-MOOD) to rectify their depraved people. The Thamudites were the descendants of Thamud, a grandson of Sam. They lived in Wadi al-Qura and Al-Hajr between Syria and Hijaz. They were idol worshipers and their tribe flourished for more than two centuries after ‘Ad. Its people were renowned for their longevity and enormous well-built bodies. They built spacious buildings in the caves of the mountains and attained considerable powers. Some references regarding the Prophet Salih (PBUH) and his people are as follows:

7:73 And to Thamud (We sent) their brother Salih. He said: O my people, serve Allah, you have no god other than Him. Clear proof has indeed come to you from your Lord. This is Allah’s she-camel — a sign for you — so leave her alone to pasture in Allah’s earth, and do her no harm, lest painful chastisement over-take you.

7:74 And remember when He made you successors after ‘Ad and settled you in the land — you make mansions on its plains and hew out houses in the mountains. So remember Allah’s bounties and act not corruptly in the land, making mischief.

7:75 The arrogant chiefs of his people said to those who were weak, to those who believed from among them: Do you know that Salih is one sent by his Lord? They said: Surely we are believers in that wherewith he has been sent.

7:76 Those who were haughty said: Surely we are disbelievers in that which you believe.

7:77 Then they hamstrung the she-camel and revolted against their Lord’s commandment, and said: O Salih, bring us that with which thou threatenest us, if thou art of the messengers.

7:78 So the earthquake seized them, and they were motionless bodies in their abodes.

7:79 So he turned away from them and said: O my people, I delivered to you the message of my Lord and gave you good advice, but you love not good advisers.

(Qur’an 7:73-79)

Dearly Beloved Sisters,

The stories of the former prophets are put there for the purpose of warning us of what is coming in these Last Days. Allah raised up a warner from among us in the Person of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad (PBUH) to tell you what is coming to America and to offer you salvation in the religion of Allah and your righteous forefathers – ISLAM. You can accept it and reform into the knowledge of yourself and your own nature or you can reject it and be destroyed as were the people of the former prophets.

Read Message to The Blackman in America.

     Eat to live to bring about a return to perfection and long life; like Noah and Methuselah, who lived nearly 1000 years of our calendar year (containing 365 1/4 days).

LONG LIFE IS NOT enjoyed by eating food which will shorten and destroy life. Under this white race of people, we were not taught how to eat to live. They, the white devils, are not here to teach us, the Lost and Found members of the Aboriginal Nation, to live a long life. They were put here to cut short our lives, and for the last 6000 years they have done so.

Eating as beasts eat (Holy Qur-an) all during the day and night will kill us at an early age – very few of the white race have regularity about their eating habits. Our stomachs are worn out in a few years, due to the continuation of trying to digest the food that we eat, some being of the type of foods which we should not dare put into our stomachs.

Poison drinks along with a mixture of good and poison foods have shortened our lives, on the average of about 63 1/2 years at the present time. This is a long way from the 600-800-900 years of life of our fathers.

WE ARE A LONG WAY off from the life of the people on Mars, Who Allah in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom Praise is due forever, taught me, lived an average life of the equivalent of 1200 years of our Earth calendar. This in fact has been the Original Nation’s calendar year ever since God created the Heavens and the Earth, so teaches the Holy Quran.

If you want a beautiful appearance, eat the proper food and eat one meal a day. When you are used to eating one meal a day, then eat one meal every other day. Your children may be able to eat two meals per week. This will put them into centuries as Noah and Methuselah.

The Fall of America


Can America Exist?

     The coming of the white man to the Western Hemisphere was for the purpose of expansion away from his brethren in Europe. Europe was divinely given to the white race as a home when they were driven out of Arabia six thousand years ago to abide there on that continent until their day of reckoning comes to them.

     These are the days of reckoning for the white race as their religious scholars and scientists agree. But because of their nature (evil) they cannot help doing evil things against the righteous. They make war against the righteous (the Black man) to prevent him from accepting righteousness and the doings of the righteousness.

     Today the Black man in America is a prey into the strong, powerful hands of his enemies (the children of their slavemasters).

     For four hundred years the slavemasters have mistreated their slaves and now in the day of their redemption, they are doing everything possible to deceive them from accepting their salvation that Allah now offers to the Black man of America.

     So strong is Allah’s love for us that He now desires nothing but a total destruction of America.

     They hate me with a bloody hatred, and they try to kill me for teaching the truth to my people. They do not want the Black man of America to enjoy freedom, justice, and equality.

     Look at what they did to Martin Luther King, a man who was trying to be their brother, a man who publicly taught that he did not want to draw the white man’s blood. He said if there was any blood to be spilled, let it be the Black man’s blood. His word came true. Poor Man.

     He was without the knowledge of self, his God and religion and so filled with fear of his four hundred year old enemies, that he could never get salvation for his people from their enemies.

     America has been blessed ever since her fathers came across the Atlantic out of the confines of Europe until this day. Now for her evil done to her slaves, God threatens her with total destruction.

     America and Germany are the most evil of the white race. These two governments have been blessed, but they have not shown any worthwhile respect to Allah for His blessings.

     Allah caused people out of all nations of the earth to come to America (They came seeking a heaven in her but those who came were evil too), as the Revelation in symbolic language teaches (Revelation 18:2) “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying Babylon (America) the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hole of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” There is no people nor country on the earth who will fill this prophecy better than America and her people.

     She has become a house filled with evil practices with every member of the nations taking part.

     Yet she has been blessed with her great harvest of food which is enough to feed the nations of the earth; with her great advancement into the heights of mechanical knowledge and with her great wealth in silver and gold that enabled her once upon a time to command the value of silver and gold of the world. But, as it is written, in all of this growing up of wealth and power, the ax of justice was laid at the root of this great tree of prosperity and authority of the nations of the earth to be used by the Holy One to put a stop to their evil practices and injustices to the righteous.

     America has prospered from the labor of her Black slaves. She pays the Black man high wages and salaries and then takes them back from him though the high cost of living. This high cost of living or trying to live according to the way the white man lives, keeps the Black man down. And when he has acquired the education of the white man but is unable to compete with the white man, he becomes dissatisfied to the degree of creating trouble to find a way to self prosperity against the will of the white man which is to keep the Black man in a condition of poverty, want and disregard as an equal human being. Yet, while the white man teaches that all human beings are created accordingly, at the same time he robs the Black man of a chance to be the equal of other human beings.

     Can America exist with all of her wicked doings against the Black man in America in a state of inequality with other human beings?

     The continued existence of America in the way of government and power over people other than her own depends on the way she will continue to treat her once slaves (the Black people of America) due to the prophecy of the Bible from Moses to Jesus and Muhammad.

     The Prophetic sayings of these prophets teach us that a coming showdown between Allah (God) and the slave holders of His people (Blacks of America) must come to pass.

     The time has arrived of this prophecy of a Defender coming to defend the prey (so-called Negro) who is held in bondage by the white slave holders who have and are still mistreating the prey to the extent that the world is in sympathy with the prey for justice.

     Now it is prophesied that a just Ruler will come — and He has come — to set up a rule or kingdom under the law of justice for a people who have lived under the law of injustice by unjust rulers. This must be fulfilled if the next government for the people universally is going to be under such a glorious rule of Freedom, Justice, and Equality.

     It is natural that the old ruler will oppose a new ruler coming to remove him and his authority to rule the people. He will fight to keep his place and authority over the people. This is why Allah threatens His opponents with the final declaration of war that will end the opponents’ opposition to His law of righteousness.

     I have been writing for many years of the coming doom of the world of Christianity and mainly America who is the root and the cause of this present judgment of America.

     The judgment of America is due to the way that she has treated the so-called Negroes (Black people of America) for four hundred years. The very hour in which I am writing, America is still mistreating her once slaves with the worst kind of treatment every accorded human beings.

     America practices the way of her fathers’ treatment of the American so-called Negroes, under what she calls a law of freedom but this “freedom” is only in word — not in practice.

     The slavemasters children’s blood, heart, and way of thinking toward the once slave is the same as their fathers’.

     They find it so free to beat and kill the once slaves (so-called Negroes) at will that they will continue this practice of mistreating and murdering the slaves day and night because there is no law of justice for the Black man of America who was the property of the fathers of America’s white citizens.

     America never thinks in terms of being equally punished for the wrong done to a so-called Negro.

     The Bible’s parable of Baal riding the donkey must be remembered. When the angel went to settle the unjust mistreatment of the donkey by Baal, the angel found Baal still beating and forcing the donkey to carry him, right in the presence of the visiting angel, who was carrying a sword to bring about justice between the two.

     It is almost impossible to say that America can exist. If America is to exist (America’s ruling power) it would make prophets of the Bible and even the Holy Qur’an prophesy other than the truth. It is impossible to make them out liars who wrote the doom of the race, that it would come at a certain time and that certain time is now known.

     The time can be prolonged if the great Madhi, the Messiah, that the world had been looking for to come for two thousand years, desires; for He does what He pleases.

    This does not mean that He would change the idea of the doom and destruction of America. But if He pleased He could extend her time if she did almost a miraculous thing like submitting to the righteousness taught and delivered to the mentally dead slave (the so-called Negro). This is the only way America could exist; by bowing in submission to the will of God, taught by His Messenger.

     The time that we are now in is a time of the anger of God against the evil-doers. It is a time that the God of righteous rejoices to repay the evil-doers for their doings, and to reward the righteous for their righteousness. Therefore, to curb this set day of doom, demands for the doing (righteousness) which, by nature, was not put in the white race. But they may yet be smart enough to bow to put a stay to their execution for a few days longer; not by intermixing with her slave to enjoy as long as they are blind, deaf, and dumb, and do not understand. This act only hastens their doom, while the foolish blind, deaf and dumb so-called Negro does not even know that he is being blind, deaf and dumb to his slaughter.

     There is no such thing that their evil will rule peace. Also the wicked, according to the prophets Jeremiah and Isaiah, are the ones who have destroyed the peace from among men.

     My advice to the white man is to make haste. Get in a hurry, if you want to live. Bow and submit to that great truth and righteousness, the will of Allah.




     You are ever making mistakes which will prove fatal to you and others of your own. If you could only recognize the time and knowledge of yourself and kind, the knowledge of the others who are on the same planet rotating around the sun daily, you would know who you are. And you should know who you are, as well as know your planet and its consistency and remember at all times how you were brought here through our parents 400 years ago and how our parents were mercilessly brought here against their will. They did not ask to come but were forced and were used for merchandise to be sold and resold for 300 long years like livestock and wild beasts.

     You do not have a second thought about this, because you have your mind, eyes and heart filled with hopes that you may become one of those who did this evil against your parents and be recognized as a great admirer and lover of these same people who now rehearse the same evil with a little addition, the fire hose and the dogs, the burning and the lynching of you and your women. You are not able-at this day and time-100 years a free slave, to protect yourself and your women from the murderous hands of the children of the murderers of your fathers and mothers 400 years ago.

     Today, God, in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, is asking you and me to “Accept our own and return to our own kind on some of this earth, that we can call our own,” and you are rejecting this offer to return to your own unless you can carry the same enemy along who has destroyed your fathers and is now destroying you. They were not bought and sold as you were; they did not come from Africa but from Europe. You are so blinded that you cannot see them and so deaf that you cannot hear the truth of them and desire to be one of them and mix into their blood and have them mix into your blood. This is like Sodom and Gomorrah before God.

     You should remember that you have a great offer made to you in the words, “Accept Your Own.” To accept your own means yourself and your kind, your God Who is of you and you are of Him. It was your fathers who created the heavens and the earth, while there is nothing that the white man has created independently. He did not even create himself. The Black Nation is self-created, while the white race is made by one of the gods and scientists of the Black Nation. Their time on our planet is nothing compared to the time that we have been in the universe on this planet. It is hardly a fraction of a minute if we divide their 6,000 years into our billions and trillions of years. It would run into little or no time at all.

     We are the originals, so Almighty God Allah has revealed. He has asked you who belong to the original people of the earth to accept your place among them, since you have been robbed of knowledge and your place on this planet that you can call your own and your place among your own. You must remember that this is a wonderful offer, and it is a wonderful knowledge to know the truth, and it is even more wonderful to know that the truth is in your favor and the earth as well as the heavens above belong to you. Accept your own, that which you have been dead to the knowledge of, now that God has come in your midst to resurrect you and put you in your place of authority. You are ignorant enough to put yourself in the place of a dog at the feet of the white race, begging them to accept you as their brother, when they could not do this if they tried. They would still be deceiving you, and their efforts would end in the manifest truth that it was only false of them to try to establish brotherhood among you. Their time of ruling the people of earth is up. Accept your place in the sun as it was originally before the creation of this world.

     You must remember that slave-names will keep you a slave in the eyes of the civilized world today. You have seen, and recently, that Africa and Asia will not honor you or give you any respect as long as you are called by the white mans’ name. The example was evident when I took Muhammad Ali (the World’s Heavyweight Champion) out of the white man’s name (the name itself made him a servant and slave to the white man). All Africa and Asia then acclaimed him as also being their champion. This shows you that all previous black men of America who were bestowed with the title of the world’s heavyweight champion were only exalting the white man of America, Europe and Australia. Their people said nothing because they were not theirs and were not enhancing their honor among the people of the world. Just a change of name has given Brother Muhammad Ali a name of honor and a name of praise that will live forever (its meaning). His people of the near and far East acclaimed him and laid the red carpet for him to come among them as a prince.

     I warn you to wake up and accept your own or go to the doom with other than your own.

Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim

In the Most Holy Name of Allah, 
Master Fard Muhammad,
The Beneficent, The Merciful

As-Salaamu ‘Alaikum Beloved and Beautiful Black Sisters,

I realized a while ago that both of my favorite singers, Phyllis Hyman and Donny Hathaway each committed suicide after battling mental illness. This got me to thinking about my own life.

In about 1989, I attempted suicide. At the time, I thought I was just doing something to get attention, but now I see it could have been very serious. I took a bunch of pills and then decided I didn’t really want to die, so I told my parents and my father took me to the hospital. Then in 1996 I was diagnosed as Bi-Polar/Paranoid Schizophrenic. I was hospitalized and the doctors recommended that I take medication. I refused and continued having episodes.

I attempted suicide again in 1998 while having an episode. At the time I didn’t really consider it as attempting suicide. I sat on the edge of a balcony and leaned back. I thought I would ascend into the sky. I didn’t. If the ground beneath me were not a dirt hill, allowing me to roll instead of hitting the ground dead on, I might not be here to write this. All Praise is due to Allah.

I began seeing a well-respected doctor in the Black Community in 1999, however, I continued having episodes until I started taking medication regularly in 2004.

The medication allowed me to function without having “episodes” but there were still symptoms. I began hearing voices and I would feel paranoia if I stayed out of the house over three hours.

However, All Praise is Due to Allah. In 2006, I converted to Islam and My Life Changed Dramatically. I became completely independent. After a few years, I started mentioning to my Doctor that I wanted to get off the medication. And in 2012, I insisted that we start the process. My Doctor very willingly agreed and reduced my dosage.

I went through some stronger symptoms, but withstood my ground and they went away after a short while and I felt better than I had on the the higher dosage.

So, after a few more months, I told my Doctor that I had fewer symptoms on the lower dosage and asked him to lower the dosage again and he complied.

Again, I went through a few symptoms, but eventually they went away once my body became acclimated to the lowered dose. I felt much better and better able to function due to the lowered dosage and began to enjoy an almost complete elimination of any feelings of paranoia.

I told my Doctor this and he began to resist any continued lowering of my dosage. However, he eventually acquiesced and agreed to lower the dose, but when I went to pick up my prescription, there was some confusion.

I learned that my Doctor had changed the prescription back to the one I was taking prior to the second lowerage without informing me. When I confronted him about it, he began lying, fabricating stories about my progress or lack thereof. What he didn’t know was that I had already began cutting the previous dose in half and had been taking the lowered dose for months already.

I couldn’t believe he, a prestigious Black psychiatrist who had written several books on the African Origins of Psychiatry and who was a much sought-after lecturer on the subject, was playing with my head! I was livid and reported him to the Head of the clinic, asking for a new Doctor. She agreed.

When I met the new Doctor, she told me my previous Doctor had died and that the Head of the Clinic had resigned!

I was very satisfied and thankful to Allah for avenging me of my old Doctor’s hypocrisy. I told the new Doctor I was doing better since my previous Doctor began lowering my dosage. I told her that I didn’t start hearing voices until AFTER I started taking the medication and she was flabbergasted. She had never heard anything of the kind. However, she too, was reluctant to lower my dosage.

The only explanation I can conceive, considering my progress on the lowered dosage is that the doctors don’t want to lose their patients. It is a shame that the very ones who are supposed to help are only looking out for their own interests.

But Allah is sufficient and when I told her what dose I had been taking she told me that it was the same dose they give toddlers and it was hardly recognized by my system. That was the last time I went to the “Doctor”.

I have completely stopped taking the medication. I explained to the Doctors that now I understand that my “symptoms” were just a very sensitive awareness of Allah (God) and the spiritual things going on in the world that other people are not aware of. It used to scare me (paranoia). But now, I listen and obey. I take heed to the signs that other people miss and use them to guide me. I know it is My Saviour communicating to me.

Our Beloved Messenger, The Honorable Elijah Muhammad (May the Peace and the Blessings of Allah Forever Be Upon Him) taught us that Allah, Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom Praises Are Due Forever, spoke to Him through “hints” (signs). I understand completely.

I know it sounds crazy, but it is the reason for my joy. I obey the signs Allah shows around me and my life is one thousand per cent better. I can’t remember the last time I heard voices. And I no longer have to find a place to hide when I am out in an effort to try and escape the paranoia.

Our Beloved Brother Donny was also diagnosed with paranoid-schizophrenia and took his life by jumping (or falling) out of a window. And Sister Phyllis was diagnosed as bi-polar and committed suicide by ingesting pills.

“Islam is the only solution to the problem of the so-called Negroes,” so taught the Honorable Elijah Muhammad (PBUH). KNOW if Brother Donny and Sister Phyllis had accepted Islam, they would both still be alive today.

The similarities in my life to these two amazing singers is remarkable. I can understand what each of them went through because I went through it too. Brother Donny suffered from the paranoia that comes from living in The Time of Armageddon and being sensitive to the spiritual warfare that is going on that most people are not aware of.

If he had had Islam, he would have known that Allah, Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom Praise is Due Forever, is going to destroy the devils from the face of the Earth and he didn’t have ANYTHING  to fear. Because Allah is backing him up and He (Allah) Will Not be defeated.

The devils have a lot of ability in the supernatural realm, but not half as much as The Black Nation, because we are the First – The Originators. Everything the Devil Caucasians know of telepathy, they learned from us. But I won’t go into that, because I don’t think you will be able to go halfway with me.

Sister Phyllis needed to know that Allah is sufficient for fulfillment in life. If she knew that her purpose in life, just as every Black Person’s purpose in life, is to submit to the Will of Allah, then she would not have been looking for fulfillment in drugs, alcohol and men. Islam would have taught her her nature – submission to the Will of Allah. Everything Else Comes Secondary.

If I didn’t have Allah and Islam, I KNOW I would have committed suicide already. My love life looks so hopeless that ANY woman who does not have the Knowledge of Self would have taken her own life by now. But I know Allah, Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom Praise is Due Forever, is backing me up and even if I NEVER realize the fulfillment of my ONE TRUE LOVE, I will die a happy woman, knowing that I lived to please Allah. And submitted to His Plan for my life. My Prayer, My Sacrifice, My Life and My Death are all for Allah. I put my life completely in His Loving Arms and I have no fear nor grief.

Islam removes fear and grief from the Believer. Islam would have removed fear (paranoia) from Brother Donny and the grief of being unfulfilled from Sister Phyllis. I bear witness.

I also sing and play the piano.

The great trouble the people have trying to keep in good health is the enemy who is poisoning food and drinks.

HOW CAN people enjoy good health while eating poison deliberately prepared and put into their food and drinks to shorten their lives?

It is very hard to find anything like pure food and drinks which you can eat and drink without feeling that they are going to make you sick or kill you.

TAKING long intervals between eating meals makes it better for you, because long intervals between meals and drinks give the poison in the body time to weaken before a new addition of poisonous food and drinks.

They do not mind hiding their intention to use poison, for they know that it will have an effect upon your body and your enjoyment of good health.

YOU could not imagine a more wicked thing to do than for someone to take a good food for innocent people-from the cradle to old age-and poison it so that the eater and the drinker cannot enjoy good health and will be at the hospital doorstep where they will be denied immediate service (especially so-called Negroes).

I have, for years, advised you on the South Side here in Chicago to let us unite and build a hospital large enough to take care of our sick, because they surely will be sick, as long as they live in a world that specializes on how to make one sick (sometimes just for commercial purposes, so doctors can make more money and so undertakers can make more money).

MORE white and Black scientists agree that America is a very poisonous place to live today. The poisoning of food and drinks is done deliberately and there is no help coming from the government to stop such demoniac, evil freedom to maim and destroy life.

Our only hope for survival is in Allah, Who has power over the evil plans of the devil.
