Allah (God) In Person
A Saviour Is Born, February 26, 1877
The following article was transcribed from a video-taped lecture of the
1973 Saviour’s Day Lecture
In the name of Allah, The Most Merciful, To Whom Praise is due forever,
The Lord of the worlds.
Brothers and Sisters, I’m so happy to see your smiling faces, who have
come here from far and near to help us give thanks to Almighty God,
Allah, Who came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, To Whom Praises is
A Saviour’s Day! Think about what we are here to worship. A Saviour’s
Day! Who is Lost that we had to have a Saviour’s Day?
You may be seated.
I am a very happy man. A little small atom. I’m so small, you have to
look for me, but if you keep your ears open, you will hear me. We have
lots of people that is making our Saviour’s Day Worship one of the most
beautiful ones I ever saw. Coming in, we saw just a wall of our believers
and our people that is seeking to learn what a Saviour’s Day looks like.
We have plenty people in this country, millions of them, that would be
here if they understood, as you and me. Think over what day we say we are
worshipping. A Saviour’s Day!
We have been lost so long. Had been lost, excuse my English, so long
that it has taken one that loved us. It has taken one that was made for
us out of the two people to come and seek to find us and after finding us
he had to have the power to save and deliver us.
This man had to be prepared. He was not already made and formed. He
had to be prepared a form to get among us. He could not come as He was,
in the spiritual form of the Nation’s mind.
So His father had to prepare this man to come find us and then take us
from our captors. We have to be taken. This is why that He, Himself, had
to come. “Even I..”, says the prophet, “…I will go after them. I will
search the earth until I find them.” A great lover with all power and
with the eye to search the earth to locate that lost one.
We are a very beloved people, for God, Himself, to come an search the
Earth and the Nations to find we that was lost. We are greatly beloved
for God, Himself, to search the Earth for us. That’s a beloved people.
He’s so greatly in love His people that He threatened the whole
population of the Earth to give them up. He said to me. He said that if
you had been here in the days of Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him) he would have come and gotten you himself.
That shows how important you are, that God will not allow one of us
to be lost. Not say hundreds or thousands, but not one should be lost. He
prepared Saviours to come for you. He says, in the Bible, “I will send
Saviours after you.”
If we are that important in the eyes of God and in the eyes of His
angels that He will send Saviours. He will send a whole host of them
after you. They shall gather you from the West and bring you,. again, to
This is the day. A Saviour’s Day! One born on this day…Think over
that!…to save this poor lost people that has been lost from their own
over four hundred years. Going after them. “Even I”, He says, “I will
go”. Not send, but “I’m going myself.”
As some of us know that this has been practiced under secrecy, for a
long time. But, today, He has arrived. Not King Solomon, but God, The
We are going to get over to you the History of This Man, Who is The
Almighty God in Person, as He gave it to me.
He says to me, beginning His History — that I want you to listen
carefully to — that His father was a Black man, very much so. And His
mother was a white woman.
He said that His father knew he could not be successful in coming to
a solid white country, and he being a solid Black man. So, He says to me,
or rather He taught me, that His father said, “I will go and make me a
son. And I will send my son among them, looking like them.” Think over
that! “And my son, they will think he is one of them. And He will find
our lost people.”
So Almighty God, in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, says to me
that he said, “I will have to make one look like them.” So, He said, His
father went up into the hills and there he found him a wife. A white
wife. And he taken her and made a good Muslim out of her.
I don’t know about that fancy that we have in the Bible that he cast
seven devils out of the woman to make her fit for giving birth to This
Man, The Saviour.
Now, I am not going to argue with no Theologian about it, because
there is something in it to prepare a woman, that by nature, is born of
the devil, to give birth to a Man destined to be the Ruler and God in
Person, of the heavens and earth.
Naturally, he had to be careful in preparing his wife. (We have a very
lot of this. You are not going to get through with this in fifteen
So He says to me, or He taught me, that He was taken by His father,
after He was born, and went looking for every good book or books that
contained great words of wisdom spoken by great Kings and of all great
He said He would get a word or two for this one and a word or two from
that one which was put away as a secret and he’d bring it and give it to
Him. He paid the people high prices for such a word or two on the History
of such-and-such man. So these things He was in preparation for a time.
Let’s go back to the hills now. He says that after finding a wife for
him in the hills. I am not going into that with you right now about where
the hills were at and who was called the hill. I won’t go into that with
you right now. Some day you will hear me tell you but I want to be sure
when I tell you this that the hills will welcome me to tell you.
We have from Him, He says to me, that His father married this woman
and that the first child she birthed for him was a girl. And He said his
father said, “Uhm, I missed that time!” So, He said, he made another try
and that was Him. And, He said, he taken so carefully care of Him that He
may be sent among the western people — the Caucasian people. Of course,
their real name you have known. Of course Caucasian is their name too.
But their real name is the devil. But he needed one of these devil people
in order to make complete…
This is not a mockery for me to stand here and call these people the
devil because that’s what they are. If any mockery should be done it
should be done for us. If what we have made or created then the God of
Blackman should be responsible for the mockery. I want to give you the
truth. They didn’t make themselves. We made them!
Well then, you have no right to be saying that your product is no
good. Well if you made it no good then don’t blame that which you made
for being no good, because you made it. I know I’m coming to you in a way
that you didn’t think about. We are here to tell the truth.
As you have in the Epistles of Paul, in the Bible, he says there
concerning this same subject. He says the clay said to the potter, “Why
make me thus?” Well that’s right! If you are the potter, the clay was
innocent until you formed it and made it in something else. If you made
another piece of pottery that you made mock of, you are the maker!
We must have understanding. We can’t say that there was a mistake
made and we should not recognize it. No. Listen at this good. I know you
pretty well. The truth is truth. If one from among us made and enemy for
us. Well we don’t go after his product, for doing this, we go after the
maker. Why did you make us an enemy? He replies back to us, “to show what
was in you. He was in you and you didn’t know it. So I brought him out of
you and made a form to him.” (We have got a lot of it. I think you are
going to need some gloves to pat your hands).
So he made the white race by taking them from us. As the Holy Qur’an
challenges them after they had been given the power to rule he reminds
his creature, ‘Don’t forget who made you, was it you, yourself, or was it
we that made you?”
This is to stop him from being proud over his maker, that he had
something to do with it. We are the only created people on Earth. The
Black man is a created man and the man that we call white, he is a made
man from the Black man.
So since that the white race was made from the Black Nation — the
created people — and now what was the purpose. It was the purpose to
bring out of the Black man that which he didn’t know that exists in him
and that that which existed in him could be made also ruler if given a
form. And given the knowledge of the Black man, he could rule the Black
man for a certain number of years until a greater one than he has been
produced by the Black man.
So this is what our Saviour, Master Fard Muhammad found in us.
Therefore, He came for us to save us because that we are people who
belongs to Creator. We are not a made people, as I repeat. We are a
created people. Therefore, getting after one that was created righteous,
now, out of us this one created from us, an unrighteous people because we
had that germ left in us from the creation of us. A germ that was not
purified that it could not be changed into a wicked germ that we have in
Another people — a white people — could be made from us today, as
we stand now, regardless to how righteous we may be. We still contain the
germ of unrighteousness. That is why we can do unrighteousness, because
the germ is still there.
So, the great scientist went after it, by the name of Yacub. So he
brought it out of us and gave the germ a form — a body, then taught that
form his wisdom and told this made man, that he made, “God forth, now, be
faithful, work fast, you got six days to do all of your work and after
that six days, the seventh day, The Brother coming from the East, he’s
gonna eat you up!”
I want you to get a knowledge of This Saviour. That’s what I’m
working forward to. HIS purpose. HIS aims. This is what I am trying to
get over to you. But I have got to bring you through history to get him
He, Mr. Yacub — the mighty scientist and maker of the white race or
white man was no fool by no means, just because he made and enemy for us.
This made us still great to know that in us was the germ of a whole race
of people — that we could form him and teach him then make him to rule
the teacher, for a certain length of time, until the people produced one
greater than he.
Now, today, this is our subject, today: “A Saviour is born”. A
Saviour out of the germ, out of the plunder — out of the scrap human
patch (We have got a lot of it), made out of that. Think over it.
He’s made partly from the race of Yacub and partly from His own, just
for the purpose to save you and me. A Saviour’s Day is rightly called.
That we are so beloved, we are so great a child out of the family of the
Creator (Think over that!), who created the heaven and earth.
Should He let an enemy hold his child? Think over that! “No, I will
go after him. Search My own earth for him and I will bring him, again, to
“What you gonna do now, father?” “I’m gonna clear this mistake so it
will never happen again.” There will be, NEVER, a robbing or stealing
away from our own, some of our people, by our enemies. No more! They
won’t be able to do so, for you are being taught the knowledge of the
enemy and how can, now, he steal you after knowledge? How can he deceive
you after knowledge? It can not be done.
So, we were so beloved that God saw that He had to make a Saviour for
us. In the Bible, it says, “He sent Saviour’s after us. Think over that.
Sent Saviour’s — lots of Saviours, to gather you from the hands of your
This has been a grieved thing. Just the idea that God has a child
being held by an enemy, whom He has power over. Should He let them remain
there, since there only is a few? No! Not even one! He will forgive you
your sins and then save you from the hands of the enemy, who made you sin
after they robbed you of the knowledge of self. Made you, then, to follow
and obey them in evil so that they could have us for a mockery before the
all wise and Holy God, Allah, that you do’t want to be like me. Oh no!
He has the power to take and forgive you because it is not a sin of
ours. It’s a sin that we were practicing because at we couldn’t help
ourselves from our enemies. We were reared up by enemies of our and not
friends. They deprived us of the knowledge of ourselves and of
themselves. And when he made us dead to the knowledge of ourselves then
he called us by his names. And, now, goes to war to keep you from getting
into your own. Your own names. He don’t want you ‘Mr. Muhammad’. He wants
‘Morehouse’. He wants ‘Moore’., which is not a holy names. He calls you
out of your name and calls you by his name. And as long as you go in his
name, you belong to him. You will soon see in a few days. You come up
with his name, you go with him. Because you rightly, then, belong to him,
since that you refuse yourself and you’re already in him then you go on
to hell with him.
This race of people — the white race — was not made to be saved.
Some of them will live, though, for a long time. Many centuries, those
who have accepted Islam. There are many more of them that still awaits
their turn to acknowledge Islam. They are coming into Islam, now, very
fast, because they know the day they are living in and the time. You
couldn’t blame them. If I were in their place, you’d wake up looking at
me and you would retire at night looking at me. I wouldn’t ever leave
your house, because this is a race of people to be destroyed and not to
give them another chance on deceiving the people.
But there will be some that stick around maybe a thousand years. But
they can’t go beyond the thousand years, even if they have not or if they
have believed, they can’t go beyond the thousand years.
I won’t go into no more of that, but that is true. But a man living
here today that can not hardly make it too far over fifty-four years old,
he says that’s okay with him if he can stick around that long — a
So let us not get away from our real subject of the making of a
Saviour for us. Think over it, now. The Black man, He created heaven and
earth and now comes to make a man. That’s a small thing for Him to do, to
make a man, when He’d taken one atom out of the total darkness of the
universe and made Himself.
We should be happy that we are Black people! He made it so clear that
He did not allow a child to be born unless that child is born out of
total darkness. This is following up His Creation. Whether you are Black,
white, red, brown or any color, you have got to be born out of total
darkness to get on this side. So therefore, He made his word “Be” stand
and steadfast. That we can’t move about in the darkness nor light unless
we give Him credit.
I want you to love Black because you are the universal God of all
life. Regardless to what color it may be, originally it was made by Black
man. There is no argument coming to you and me from the scientists of
white people that you are not the original man of the Earth.
Their scientists know this because we have our mark on them. They
couldn’t deny it if they tried. If they know how to go into it.
We are the people to look forward to the….toward the making of
heaven and earth, as we are going to do it. At least…I’m not saying I’m
going to do it, but I’m helping now. This is why that you repeatedly hear
something from the first. How it was done.
If you have caught up with the wisdom of that first man, then it needs
a second man to change the whole thing around because you are not
supposed to be standing aimless…No.
After the first God, we are practically, now, peeping into some of
His art work. And finding in the root of this art work a way to change up
the whole thing. This is why, again, that it is promised to you and me –
a new heaven and a new earth.
Some of us say that is spiritually. Yes it is, at the present.
“Allah came to us from the Holy City Mecca, Arabia, in 1930. He used the
name Wallace D. Fard, often signing it W.D. Fard. In the third year
(1933), He signed His name W.F. Muhammad which stands for Wallace Fard
Muhammad. He came alone.”
“He (Mr. W.F. Muhammad, God in person) chose to suffer 3-1/2 years to
show his love for his people, who have suffered over 300 years at the
hands of a people who by nature are evil and wicked and have no good in
them. He was persecuted, sent to jail in 1932, and ordered out of
Detroit, on May 26,1933. He came to Chicago in the same year and was
arrested almost immediately on his arrival and placed behind prison bars.
He submitted himself with all humbleness to his persecutors. Each time he
was arrested, he sent for me so that I might see and learn the price of
Truth for us, the so-called American Negroes (members of the Asiatic
He was well able to save himself from such suffering, but how else was
the scripture to be fulfilled? We followed in his footsteps, suffering
the same persecution.
My people are yet sound asleep to the knowledge of the good that is being
carried for their deliverance.”
