The Ummah Responds to the Farrakhan Fitnah Once Again; A Dire Warning From Bro. Idris Palmer!

It is quite inspiring to see that the Ummah continues to repudiate the Satanic pact that a group of prominent Muslim personalities made with Louis Farrakhan this summer. The following article appears in the Muslim Link online newspaper and was written by bro. Idris Palmer, one of the nation’s foremost authorities on the history and bizarre doctrines of the so-called Nation of Islam. It is a dire warning to the above mentioned “leaders” to turn away from the dangerous path they’ve embarked upon, and a powerful statement that the Ummah will not take this disastrous move sitting down, nor will it forget this sell out!

A Huge Mistake Aligning With Farrakhan

Written by Idris Palmer

All praise is to Allah, and may prayers and peace be upon his final Messenger, Muhammad ibn Abdullah, and upon all those who strive upon his path until the Day of Judgement, ameen.

To proceed:
I ask Allah to reward any Muslim for taking a stance against ‘bigotry and Islamophobia’ as they should be congratulated for showing integrity and courage in the face of this onslaught (See “African-American Muslim Leaders: Opposition to Masjid Is Racism” in the September 24, 2010 issue of the Muslim Link) . I hope that Allah guides them in their endeavors. Yet as an independent researcher who has chronologized the near 90 year history of the Nation of Islam cult, and who quite frankly knows this group better than many members of the Nation themselves know, I was surprised to read about the CAAM meeting and their inclusion of Minister Louis Farrakhan.
Watching the CAAM broadcast, I could not help but notice that NOI dominated the microphone. Thus I am obliged to reply by way of naseehah- for the sake of Allah, His Messenger, and the Ummah of believers.
Someone commented that, ‘globally the attempts to undermine Islam in Muslim lands will fall flat, as Islam is too firmly entrenched there; yet here in America, due to a weak foundation on the part of Muslims in issues of belief, along with a strong social undercurrent of secular humanism, Islam can be controlled, manipulated and changed.’
The CAAM meeting and press conference vividly displays how far issues of basic belief have now become a distant memory in much of North America. The participants appear to have placed the dead philosophy of secular interfaith politics above the vibrant and dynamic future of Islam.
Indeed, by allowing Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan to be a member of and the featured speaker for their coalition and moreover having his people dictate the venue, they have opened a Pandora’s box which they will discover is impossible to close. It is an issue much graver than taking a stand as Pakistan did years ago with the Qadianis. As American Muslims, we stand by the shore awaiting a tsunami. News travels quickly in the 21st century – do not think other groups have not taken notice of this meeting. The door is now wide open to accept not only the Qadianis but also the Ismailis, Bahais etc. as ‘brothers in faith’. This is not an outlandish possibility, since the NOI still advertises the Qadiani translation, tafseer and aqeedah on their website.
What some people do not realize, is that Farrakhan is not a Muslim, but rather he is a heterodox, esoteric Batini who for over 55 years has masqueraded as a Muslim. He publicly maintains the same pantheistic, esoteric doctrines as that of his teacher, Elijah Muhammad, and uses any opportunity he has to restate his conviction to Elijah’s teachings- including his speech before CAAM!
It was Elijah Muhammad, who declared up to his death in 1975, that he was, ‘the Messenger of Allah,’ and that Allah was a man. According to Elijah, Allah had a father named Alfonso and a Jewish mother named Baby Gee. Elijah said the Hereafter is now and all black men are angels. One of these angels he claimed, was named Allah, who appeared in human form on the streets of Detroit, Michigan in July of 1930. Farrakhan to this day, teaches this same doctrine- ‘Yacub’s History’ as is evidenced on pages 45-52 of his study guide on his website.
Elijah explained this concept in detail in his books, “Message to the Blackman” and “The Fall Of America.” He taught that blacks were originally “moon people” and that a UFO “mother wheel”, piloted by 13 youths perpetually orbited the earth, waiting to unleash global destruction on whites, while rescuing all blacks. The UFO inspiration doctrine even caught the eye of mainstream media. At the time of the 1995 Million Man March, Farrakhan alleged he had a, “vision of being swept into a UFO that took him to a larger mothership.” While in the UFO, he claimed to have spoken to the late Elijah Muhammad before being beamed back to earth. (The Washington Post, Sept. 18, 1995, p. D3). On nationally televised Meet the Press, Tim Russert questioned Farrakhan about Yacub’s History and the UFO concept, to which Farrakhan replied, ‘I subscribe to every word the Honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us.’ (April 13, 1997)
Years ago a brother said, “Farrakhan’s ideology is the same as Pharaoh. This is not part of Islam, a form of Islam or anything which could move incrementally toward Islam. This is the din of Shaitaan. It is absolutely diametrically opposed to the very foundation of Islam. In fact, the Nation of Islam is the move on the part of the Kuffar against Islam ever developing a foothold in the US. You seriously underestimate your enemy. They are much deeper and more clever than most of us who react to events on a very shallow level without any understanding of the fundamentals of Tauhid on which all of Islam is based.”

It is thus impossible for anyone to try to make a distinction between Farrakhan and his UFO inspiration, or stand against bigotry while aligning oneself with Farrakhan. Neither Farrakhan nor his personnel make a distinction, why then should we Muslims make a distinction? Moreover, it is an error to oversimplify the issue by denouncing Farrakhan’s racist diatribes and playing down Farrakhan’s God-is-a-man and Prophet-after-Muhammad aqeedah. In fact, Farrakhan ignores the basic precept of the shahada- that is, it is a NEGATION and THEN an affirmation. One must first NEGATE (LA ILAHA), before affirming belief (IL ALLAH). To invert this basic precept as some have done, is unheard of even among the most lax of the Muslims. Thus when he remarks in his opening CAAM address, ‘..we believe in all of His prophets, and make no distinction between them.’ Since Farrakhan is an esoteric Batini, he is by default INCLUDING Elijah AMONG those prophets. Only by ignoring the aforementioned principle can Farrakhan and his like slip by unnoticed and manage to camouflage themselves as Muslims.

In the end, bigotry and ‘Islamophobia’ have little to do with the issue. Surely, bigotry is contrary to Islamic principles and Islam rejects it. However, the deviation of Elijah Muhammad, Louis Farrakhan and those who follow them are MUCH more serious than racism. It is the sin which Allah DOES NOT forgive.  “Inna Allah laa yaghfiru an yushraka bihi, wa yaghfiru maa duna dhalika li may yashaa” (Sura Nisa:116). If Farrakhan would leave his man-is-god and prophet-after-Muhammad aqeedah, but was still a raving racist, he would be much better off than the other way around! Let it be said very clearly, that there is NO ideology on the face of this earth which could be farther from Islam than that of Louis Farrakhan. NONE!

  1. ASA Dear Concerned Believers:

    MANA leaders have already spoken with Imam Siraj and others about our own concerns surrounding the image and execution of the CAAM event. We were informed that it was not originally conceived as it ended up. Amir Siraj’s reccomendation had been for Imam Zaid Shakir (who conceived the idea) to take the lead in the initiative and program, which was to have been a coalition of both Muslim and non-Muslim African American religious leaders. He did not realize that this wasn’t the case until he arrived for the event. Imam Siraj felt compelled to make a statement at the time because of the gravity of the situation (religious intolerance, ethnic bigotry, and “Islamophobia”) but he has since withdrawn from CAAM as an organization. May Allah forgive all of our shortcomings and errors, guide us all, and grant us victory over the Unbelievers, amin.

  2. Kwame Madden says:

    If you have delivered a khutbah for this kufr organzation why would you disagee with a press conference.The pictures speak for themselves.This isn’t about Imam Siraj this about upholding the principles of our aqeedah.We should have Al-Wala Wa’l-Bara aganist NOI.This man lies aganist Allah and has done this continually. Ibn Shayba reports that the Prophet [pbuh] said,”The strongest bond of faith is loyality for the sake of Allah and oppostion for his sake, love for the sake of Allah and enmity for his sake”. By the way, I know a person who sat in on the conference calls, so to set the record straight this was known. Also one of the members of CAAM told me on the phone that the mushrik Farrakhan is a muslim. Also they called in the “Deen Over Dunya” show and said the same thing.The common every day people have spoken; they will not tolerate cooperation with this mushrik and his organzation.We are enjoining the good and forbidding evil by letting the people know that this totally unacceptable.

      as salaam alaikum,

      The main thing I have to say about this is, some of us who are so Muslim that we are mad at Imams and attacking them, are like the ones who want to take the splinter out of our neighbors eye. I haven’t heard any of the Imams at the press conference speak in favor of recognizing the NOI since the press conference and you even have Imam Rashid writing this blog to say that Imam Siraj is not even in CAAM anymore. As Muslims we are to be naive and assume the best of everyone and make 70 excuses for our brothers and sisters and cover their faults. This is explicit Quran and sunnah. Can any person say for one second, may Allah not strike you down for lying…..can you say Imams Zaid and Siraj are not Muslims? Since they are Muslims and even more, Muslims who have taught Islam to thousands of people, why would you jump up and down defaming fellow Muslims instead of assuming they are human and maybe they made a mistake? Don’t just embrace the part of Islam that says you are to hate what is forbidden. Allah has given YOU instructions on loving fellow Muslims and Allah didn’t say your brothers and sisters have to be perfect before you give them their rights. It is their right not to be attacked by fellow Muslims. Their property is sacred, BY ALLAH. There names and their reputations belong to them and you have no right to defame them simply because they associate with the NOI. I have an extreme dislike for the NOI and Farakhan. But to attack anyone who goes near the pagans is not a rule in Islam. Please respect these Imams. Allah loves them and has blessed them with Islam and to be ambassadors of Islam. You attack them and their reputation at your own peril. I am no scholar. But I am pretty sure, somewhere in Islam, it is written that Allah protects Muslims….even the ones you don’t like.

      Fee Amanallah,
      Abdur Rahman

    A.S.A Cutting right to the chase. The Kufr (included in this are Zionists,free masons etc.
    and the Munafics who eat from many tables) have CONSPIRED to “prop up”,pass off
    the N.O.I as Islam. This for the most part was done to prevent “REAL ISLAM” from ever
    becoming relivant in the good ol ” United Snakes” This for instance explains how Elijah
    Poole and his N.O.I cult/gang could during the Jim Crowe Aparthide era could spew
    their “WHITE MAN IS A DEVIL” proclamation along with the other glaring distortions (as
    aformentioned) and not only survive but prosper. It is more effective to promote a
    distortion of Islam then nothing,because distortions mislead people and “nothing” leaves
    a void that real Islam could fill.This cleaver plot not only also serves to marginalize Islam in
    the black community,but by saying the so called “White Man is a DEVIL” and could not
    because of his evil nature ever become a Muslim,prevent Europeon Americans from doing just that. Ofcourse if you do that you exclude the people who wield the power and could help elevate the status of Islam to relivance in America.

    The question brother Mutukku would the Prophet [SAW] and his noble companions welcome and embraced Muslalimah, Aswad, Sajah, Tulayhah when they were disrupting the aqeeda of the muslims. Yes Sajah and Tulayhah returned to Islam later on but there deviant views of prophethood was opposed by the companions. We must have clarity not clinging to inviduals and personalties. Yes,indeed they are our fellow muslim brothers.This is not about hating anyone this is about tasfiyah and tarbiya of the aqeedah of the muslims. We are just common brothers and sisters who happen to BAM who are expressing our deep concerns and thoughts about this matter. It was through this blog and the airwaves in the last few wks. that this matter has really taken on concern. And we thank again this blogger and the Deen over Dunya show for allowing us these avenues to do so.

  9. Amina says:

    Assalaamu alaikum,

    I was deeply saddened and very disappointed to see my beloved brothers: Imams Siraj and Zaid at this event during the last 10 days of the month of Ramadaan.

    I wondered about thier wives, families and community. Who was conducting the affairs of thier respective masjid? When the people came for prayers, who was leading them? Did the Imams consider the importance of itikaaf as less worthy than a publicity stunt or photo op to deal with outside issues? What about the soul?

    Was it really that important to respond (during the last 10 days of Ramadaan) about public outcry over a majid being built? Who really cares that the media’s portrayal of us is jaded. Who cares? I don’t.

    However, I care very deeply that these brothers in particular lacked the common sense or personal advice not to travel during the last 10 days of the month of Ramadaan! I care that you were not particular about your company, your surroundings or the food you ate. I care about your souls and want you to be safe.

    My sincere dua’as go out to our leaders who may need to take a step back and re-evaluate where all thier knowledge, notoriety and prestige has taken them. Is it closer to Allah or closer to the fundraising goal? Has your knowledge benefitted the old woman in your community with no husband, brothers or sons or has your knowledge broke ground for a new bank account?

    Please stop the charade of travel, lights, cameras and all this action! Stop begging for approval, legitimacy and money. Go back to basics! Observe the prayer and title of Imam.

    Clean up and build up your own community before going out to clean up and build up someone elses. Mind your own business-which is your own community of youth, elders, immigrants, women, etc.

    We need you and pray for your continued success and guidance. Your (disappointed) yet faithful sister in Islam.

    This is a sad representation of Islam in disagreement to one’s views or opinions, far from the teachings of Muhammad the prophet , if one know there dean, there would be no need for such foolishness once again you have one who appears to do things to be seen in the eyes of men rather than the eyes of Allah, the writer of this foolishness intentions is not that of Allah in time it will be clear to the reader and supporters

  13. Albert Muhammad says:

    I thank Allah for coming in the person’s of Master Fard Muhammad and raising for us the most Honorable Elijah Muhammad if not for these two I would not have the pleasure of serving and working under the divine leadership of the most Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan , over the last 28 years under the leadership of the minister ,I have never heard him negatively address any faith in a aggressive way who didn’t agree with the teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, he has always shown up most respect to those who disagree with the teachings of Elijah Muhammad unlike what is written in this post which clearly ashores me that the writer of this foolishness is not of Muhammad the prophet , we will further support the (HMLF) and defend the teachings of (THEM) by any means necessary

  14. Preston Muhammad says:

    ASA. Mr. Palmer. Have you ever discussed your differences with Minister Farrakhan? From reading your commentary, it is clear that much of what your write is very misleading. For instance, the membership of the Nation of Islam, have always been taught that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the Messenger of Allah. We have always been taught that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the Last Prophet of Allah as it is stated in the Holy Qur’an 33:40. However, 33:40 clearly states that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is the last Nabi (Prophet), it does not say in this ayat that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is the last Rasul. There are so many other points that need to be discussed and should not be dismissed. If you have not addressed your points of contention with Minister Farrakhan or his designated representative, it is unjust for you to spread such venom.

    • Adil J Cole says:

      You can read the post below by a more hardcore NOI believer and see how the NOI truly feels about “Arab Islam.”

      You may be unaware that any Sunni Muslim with some basic training in theology will read this and immediately recognize a contradiction that we consider irreconcilable. We believe that the status of a Rasul is actually more elevated than that of a Nabi. The Rasul’s are Nabi’s that came with a book/law, whereas a Nabi by itself may have only come to affirm a previous law and call people back to this Truth. In essence, a Rasul is automatically a Nabi, while a Nabi is not automatically a Rasul.

      Therefore, if Elijah Muhammad is a Rasul, then Muhammad ibn Abdullah, prayers and peace be upon him, would not be the last Prophet because Elijah would automatically be a Prophet as well.

    TO: The Asiatic Black Man, Woman & Child

    Islam has no beginning and it has no end. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad (PBUH) told you & I during his lifetime that if there was an end, we (the Black Man and Woman) will be it. We trace the history of Islam beyond 66-trillion years. The Arab has only had Islam for the past 1,400 years or so. He (the Arab) was given Islam as THE KEEPER OF OUR CASTLE so that the enemy race could not in the future (which is now) completely take the (Holy) land, plundering it at his pleasure.

    The revelation of the Qur’an to Prophet Muhammad Ibn Abdullah (PBUH) occurred in AD 610 however, all references to “Muhammad” contained within the Qur’an ARE NOT ALL ABOUT HIM. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) WAS AN ARAB OF THE QURISH TRIBE (of Mecca Arabia), NOT OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL. The Hon. Elijah Muhammad (PBUH) taught you and I for 40 years that we, the so-called negro here in the wilderness hell of North America are the PROPHETIC CHILDREN OF ISRAEL. However, the Arab is adamant in his (false) claims that Muhammad of Arabia (PBUH) is the Seal, or last of the prophets to be sent by Allah. The Qur’an tells us something very different at 61:6, as follows:

    And when Jesus, son of Mary, said O Children of Israel, surely I am the Messenger of Allah to you, verifying that which is before me of the Torah and giving the good news of a Messenger who will come after me, his name being Ahmad.

    But when he came to them with clear arguments, they said: this is enchantment.

    (compare St. John 15:23-26)

    The name Ahmad has the very same and exact meaning as Muhammad (Commendable & Praiseworthy). Jesus son of Mary, in this case, was Jesus of 2,000 years ago. That Jesus, or Isa, spoke of THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND NOT OF THE CHILDREN OF ARABIA OR THE CHILDREN OF THE QURISH. The Hon. Silis Muhammad does not claim to be a “Messenger.” Surely, the teaching of The Hon. Elijah Muhammad (PBUH) was scoffed at and rejected by those who disbelieved and continue to disbelieve, in a manner so as to accuse him of enchantment.

    No Ahmad/Muhammad of THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL has appeared as “The Last and Greatest Messenger of Allah” other than The Honorable Elijah Muhammad (PBUH). Therefore, the Arabs (and those who accept their false claims) are Liars when they make the (false) claim that Muhammad Ibn Abdullah (PBUH) is the “Seal of the Prophets.” Moreover, the acceptance of this Lie by the so-called negro here in the wilderness hell of North America wholly deprives him/her of their TRUE SALVATION in Islam. This being the case and, as sharp and intelligent as Minister Louis Farrakhan is with the scriptures of both the Bible and the Holy Qur’an, why then does he (Minister Farrakhan) bear his (false) witness that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) of Arabia is the Seal and the last of the prophets sent of Allah when he (Farrakhan) is supposed to be the National Representative of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad (PBUH)???

    The Hon. Elijah Muhammad (PBUH) told us clearly that Arab Islam is the Old Islam going out with the Old World (and its false belief in a Mystery-Spirit-Spook God (Allah)/Religion and that; the Islam he taught is the New Islam coming in with the New World (of Man-God).

    The so-called negro here in the wilderness hell of North America is the True Jew of scripture. Our birthright was stolen by the (impostor) Jew; that same impostor stole our national identity and successfully DECEIVED THE WORLD that his people is in fact OUR PEOPLE; this resulted in the (impostor) Jew being able to convince the Powers of this world to establish a homeland for him (in Asia) that has been known as the State of Israel since 1948. The very same ancestral homeland of The Asiatic Blackman of the Lost-Found Holy Tribe Shabazz, the Greater Taker, Direct Descendants of Almighty Allah Himself.

    The current conflict in the Middle East between the (impostor) Jew and the Arab is over who is the rightful inheritor of the Land. NEITHER ONE OF THEM IS THE RIGHTFUL INHERITOR OF THE LAND. The Black Stone of the Holy Kabbah at Mecca Arabia is a sign and a symbol of the national identity of THE RIGHTFUL INHERITOR OF THE LAND. This is why the U.S. Government works overtime to keep and maintain division between the Lost-Found Nation of Islam and the black Community. If we all knew WHO WE REALLY ARE, The Hon. Elijah Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Our Unity is more Powerful than an Atom bomb.”

      Peace be upon those who are rightly guided. Without going into a long reply about the incoherence of believing that God is a man that uses the restroom, eats food, etc. It is sufficient to reply that in no way does al-Qur’an 61:6 contradict that Muhammad ibn Abdullah, prayers and peace of Allah (who never came in the form of man, whether Jesus or Fard) be upon him, is the Seal of the Prophets and Messengers. The verse does not say that the foretold Ahmad will be of the Children of Israel, rather it is a statement from Jesus, prayers and peace of Allah upon him, to the Children of Israel to be aware of a Messenger that will come after him. In fact, one of the differences between Muhammad ibn Abdullah, salla Allahu alay, and the other Prophets and Messengers is that he is a universal Prophet/Messenger. He came for all people, the Arab and the non-Arab, the “white” and the “black.” Jesus was only sent to the Children of Israel and was thus speaking to them.

    I am not a follower of Louis Farrakhan, but I am intelligent & able to think for myself. One thing that immediately stands out in my mind is the position that negro Muslims take toward a man whom has continued to be on the frontline for black people in America while they (negro Muslims) continue to allow themselves to be labeled, stereotyped, marginalized & made completely ineffective by anti-Muslim propaganda. You are utterly afraid of your open enemies & instead choose to attack a man who means you no harm simply because he doesn’t prescribe to your limited understanding of Islam. You do this to anyone who doesn’t package themselves as an “Arabized” Muslim; anyone who understands that Islam is universal. You fail to understand that Prophet Muhammad was NOT a Sunni, Shia, etc., neither did he subscribe to any of the so-called schools of thought that the Arab “scholars” deem acceptable. You are victims of having your knowledge prescribed to you by one who historically has not treated you right, yet you think that they would teach you right. Surely you jest. Were he here Prophet Muhammad would be speaking out against the injustices against blacks in America, yet those who claim to follow him have nothing to say. However, they are the first to protest Palestine. When’s the last time you saw the Palestinians protesting on the behalf of blacks in America? You haven’t! I rest my case.

    • Adil J Cole says:

      Kendra,

      There is some truth in your post, but it is also overly simplistic and shows a lack of understanding concerning the development of the schools of Islamic law. It is not only the “Arab scholars” that have deemed these schools acceptable, but rather the vast majority of all scholars from amongst the Ummah. Of these scholars, there were many who are/were non-Arab, including Sub-Saharan giants such as Shaykh Uthman ibn Fuduye. Yes, certain communities are quick to support Palestine, while ignoring the issues of black America, but I see (Palestinian) Linda Sarsour protesting all the time. Look her up.

  21. Kendra says:

    Oh, & stop using Malcolm’s name in vain. He was a revolutionary who actually cared about the oppressed. You all are a bunch of cowards who only care about Muslims within the parameters that your oppressor dictates that you can care. Those of you who are black aren’t busy striving to be like Malcolm. You’re busy using Arabized Islam to cover up the fact that you’re black. You’ve moved from the back of the bus to the back of the camel.

    Following Minister Farrakhan without questioning his motives or his agenda is a little bit like taking all of the medicine in your medicine cabinet at one time. You have to know what to take, when to take it, and how much of it you need to take. Some of it is expired and you need to get a new prescription. Some of it is just bad for your and you need to just leave it alone and find a new remedy for what “ails you.” I am 60 years old and have “followed” this man for over 40 years, ever since I was a teenager. Some of the things he says and does is very good, and some of it is a pile of horse manure. I take everything with a grain of salt and realize that he is JUST A MAN. That is the reason why I belong to NO RELIGION. I am my own person and worship my own God.

Minister Farrakhan says he is a Muslim, who are you to say he is not. Can you read his heart? Why can’t you just say as salaam alaikum instead of hating on another Muslim.

      No, we can’t read his heart. Therefore, we listen to his speeches and read his words. We can only judge on what is outwardly apparent.
