My Mission and Objective
By Messenger Elijah Muhammad
Reprinted from The Supreme Wisdom Volume 2
I have been risen to raise my people here (the so-called Negroes), and to
help them into the knowledge of Self, and their God Allah (who is in
Person among them) and the devils (their open enemies).
I am doing all I can to make the so-called Negroes see that the white
race and their religion (Christianity) are their open enemies, and to
prove to them that they will never be anything but the devils’ slaves and
finally go to hell with them for believing and following them and their
DIVINE PROTECTION FOR MY PEOPLE
Islam is being offered to the so-called Negroes of America for the sole
purpose of bringing them into the knowledge of Truth.
Another purpose is to give them Divine protection, and to set them on top
of civilization, (this is mentioned in the Bible if you can understand).
Without Islam the so-called Negroes would never become a free,
independent people under those who had enslaved them. It’s Allah’s doing
and we can’t hinder Islam’s progress here.
THE AIM OF ISLAM IN AMERICA
The aim of Islam in America is:
(1) To teach our people (the so-called Negroes) the Truth:
(2) To clean them up and make them self-respecting and to unite them on
to their own kind.
(3) To bring them face to face with our God, and to teach them to know
In short, Islam is offered to our people (the so-called Negroes) as a
Remedy of their Ills, or as a Solution to their problems.
WHAT HINDERS THE PROGRESS OF ISLAM IN AMERICA
The greatest hindrance to the progress of Islam in America is the
so-called Negro Christian preacher, ever-preaching the same old
falsehoods, singing and mourning over the air, calling on a dead Jesus
and a mystery God that doesn’t even exist.
The so-called Negroes were born in such falsehoods and made to fear them
by the Slavemasters-lest they should not be fed, clothed or sheltered.
WE ARE SURE OF OUR WORK AND SUCCESS
We are sure of our work and success. When we get through opening the
so-called Negroes’ eyes, the white Christians will take their hats off to
I DO NOT MAKE MISTAKES
I do not make mistakes in what I write pertaining to these two races -
black and white – and I do not need to study the theory of evolution to
learn about them.
Theories do not always prove to be the truth. I have the truth from the
All-Wise One (Allah), to Whom praise is due. He has raised the curtain of
falsehood which kept the true knowledge of the black and white races
(especially the white race) from the peoples of the earth for 6,000 years.
They say that I am a preacher of racial hatred, but the fact is that the
white people don’t like the truth, especially if it speaks against them.
This we have known all our lives.
“WHAT HAVE I DONE?”
This is a question often asked of me or of my followers by those who are
not the Believers.
I am doing that for thousands (of my people) which Christianity failed to
do –that is, uniting the so-called Negroes and making them to leave off
evil habits that the preachers of Christianity have not been able to do
for a hundred years. We offer that in Islam what Christianity offers
beyond the grave.
THE KEYS OF GOD
I am very insignificant in your eyes, my people, but I have the Keys of
God to your (so-called Negroes’) problems, and you should not fear, for
the DAY has come that you will have to seek refuge in the “New World”
(of Allah), which is something far better and more enduring than the
white race’s Christianity.
