ISLAM VS. ‘NATION OF ISLAM’

ISLAM, and so-called “NATION OF ISLAM” are two complete different religions. The Only thing common between them is the jargon, the language used by the both. “The nation of Islam” is a misnomer; this religion should be called Farrakhanism, after the name of its propagator. The religion of Elijah Muhammad and W. D. Muhammad, integrated the community with the Muslim community at-large, following the Qur’an and Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Louis Farrakhan joined W.D. Muhammad and gave his pledge of allegiance to him after Elijah Mohammad’s death; he later rebelled and broke his oath with impunity, or without paying any expiation, and restarted “THE NATION OF ISLAM.”

Examine the following comparisons between Islam and Farrakhanism with

regard to the belief or practice in each.

BELIEF /PRACTICE

ISLAM (Green)

FARRAKHANISM (Red)

God / Allaah Alone

ISLAM: One Unique, never appeared in any physical form; hence, no physical representation is possible. He is recognized through his 99 names.

“…Allaah (GOD) appeared in the Person of Master W. Fard Muhammad, July 1930; the long awaited ‘Messiah of the Christian and the ‘Mahdi” of the Muslim.”

Prophet / Messenger

Muhammad  is the last Prophet and the last Messenger. No Messenger or prophet will come after Muhammad.

Elijah Muhammad was a “Messenger of Allaah.’ Are there anymore messenger or Prophet after Muhammad (pbuh).

The Last Day /The Life hereafter

The life on earth as we know it will come to an end; it will be followed by the life hereafter, which includes physical resurrection of the entire humankind, judgment and the life of paradise or hell.

“…BELIEVE in the resurrection of the dead – not in physical resurrection, but in mental resurrection.” “No already physical dead person will be in Hereafter; that is slavery belief, taught to slaves to keep them under control.’ “When you are dead, you are DEAD.”

The Qur’an

It was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) between 610 and 632 C.E. It is the last revelation of Allaah to mankind.

Contradictory beliefs, On one side” …BELIEVE in the Holy Qur’an and in the scriptures of all the Prophets of GOD,” and on the other side, “We, the original nation of the it is done by twenty-four of our scientist.” “Both the present Bible and the Holy Qur’an must soon give way to the Holy Book..”

The Bible

It was revealed to prophets and messenger from Moses (pbuh) to Jesus (pbuh) but was corrupted. Authenticity of statements in the Bible are judged by the Qur’an.

(See their beliefs above regarding the Qur’an)

Shahadah

It means what it say, that is, Allaah is Unseen. HE is the Creator, the Sustainer. Mankind is accountable to Him Alone, and Prophet Muhammad of Arabia (pbuh) is the final and ultimate ROLE MODEL; no one can substitute.

A cover up deceived gullible Muslim. “Allaah (God) appeared in the persons of Master W. Fard Muhammad,” and Muhammad of Arabia was one of the prophet, not role model for our times. The real role model and lawgiver for our times is Elijah Muhammad.

Salah

Five times a day is required; SALAH (prayer) includes QIYAM (Standing), RUKUH’ (bowing), SAJDA (Prostration), JALSA (Sitting on the floor) and recitations.

No five times daily SALAH (prayer); prayer, when done has no RUKU’ or SAJDA. Friday is a major congregation prayer day, nor for SALAH, but to say DU’A and to listen to a Minister.

Zakat

Require on accumulated wealth after. Having in possession for one year above the NISAB (certain limits), as defined in SHARI’A (Islamic Law).

It is a tax as “poor due” on income, similar to income tax. Who benefits?

Sawm/Hajj

Fasting is required in the month of Ramadan, ninth month of Islamic calendar.

Required once in a lifetime if conditions of finances, health and safety of travel are met.

Fasting is required in December only. Fasting in the Month of Ramadan is optional No Hajj requirement. Farrakhan and his cronies take trips to Saudi Arabia, and by the way, to Makkah for the main purpose of image building and to raise funds from gullible rich Arabs.

Lawful (Halal) / Unlawful (Haram)

Determined by Allaah, the God Alone, announced in the Qur’an or by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Recorded in the authentic Hadith sources.

Determine by W.D. Fard and announced by Elijah Muhammad. The Qur’an and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) have neither relevance nor authority with regard to lawful and unlawful.

    Im not sure if they are or not but i do know that Farakhan has been allowed to perform hajj… but the beauty of islam is that if we have an issue we take it back to the quran and sunnah…. and there is no doubt that the kuffar are not allowed to enter makkah or medinah……. so if someone out of ignorance or plain error allows this than there is no doubt that he has made a mistake and we ask for guidance and forgiveness for that person whether he/she is the prince of Saudia Arabia…… or a common lamen ignorant somewhere in the desert of Africa….. and to ALLAH belong the East and West and to him we shall all return……. and Allah knows best!!
