Messenger Elijah Muhammad on Muhammad Ali
Clarification of Action Taken by Messenger Muhammad Against Muhammad
By Elijah Muhammad, Messenger of Allah
Reprinted from Muhammad Speaks Newspaper, April 11, 1969
MR. MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY) had been preaching to the Black Man here
in America that Allah would give him MONEY, GOOD HOMES and FRIENDSHIP in
all Walks of Life.
MR. MUHAMMAD AIL (CASSIUS CLAY) did not seem to care anything about what
Allah God) promised nor that Allah (God) has the power to back up His
MR. MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY) decided to go with the white man as soon
as he found that they had deferred him from going to the Army. This act
only shows that the world of sport and play was in the heart of MR.
MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY) all the time and that he wanted to make money
real fast. Holy Quran Chapter 29:64.
EVER SINCE he was a little boy, he had enjoyed fighting his Black brother
and some times white people, in the ring for the joy of the white man. He
knew that they were gambling on his skill as a fighter.
MR. MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY), when he crossed over the rope to fight
his opponent, knew that he had many people sitting down on the sidelines
and all over the country and the world, betting on him to whip his
AN ACCIDENTAL BLOW could be fatal to his opponent. People are being
killed in the ring. How would MR. MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY) feel, if he
should kill his own brother, for the sake of a ‘leetle money’.
MR. MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY) has been fighting for a long time and the
government has taken his money, that is why he does not have a ‘leetle
money’ to show for his years of fighting in the ring.
MR. MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY) has boasted that the government should
let him go free because he was making millions of dollars for them. It
does look like he was making millions of dollars for them as he, himself
does not seem to have a
‘leetle money’. He is asking them to let him come back for the sake of a
‘leetle money’ . . . going, as though to say that “I was over here and
could not get a ‘leetle money’, so let me come over there.” He was trying
to make the teachings a lie, when Allah (God) cannot lie. He has the
power to make that which He says come to pass.
MR. MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY) did such a foolish thing, by going back
into the ring and wants me to keep him in the pulpit too. Bible Luke:
9:62 tells us that no man who deserts the pulpit for the sake of the
world is fit for the kingdom of God. Bible Matthew: 6:24 means that he
wants to serve Allah (God) says in His Holy Quran that you cannot serve
two gods and be honest with both for you do not have two hearts. Since
you have only one heart, then you can only serve one God.
I GAVE HIM, The Muslim Name MUHAMMAD ALI and removed the slave name,
CASSIUS CLAY. This made him famous all over the world. In Asia, the
Muslim world recognized him to the highest, but no more when they find
that he is still CASSIUS CLAY, everywhere.
WHY WOULD ASIA, respect MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY)? They respected him
because of the name, MUHAMMAD ALI. They did not respect him for the sake
of the sport, boxing. They do not have prize fighting in the Muslim
world. They respected MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY), because he was a
Muslim and was whipping the white man and the Black Man out of the honor
of being the champion man of the fistical world of sport.
DO YOU THINK that they will still respect MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY).
NO! If they did they would not be good Muslims. If I take MUHAMMAD ALI
(CASSIUS CLAY) down as being worthy of the respect of the Islamic World,
do you think they would still respect him. NO! If the Muslims did
continue to respect him, they would be unfit themselves to be called
MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY) made a public fool of himself by tarnishing
great honor that he had achieved under the name of MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS
CLAY), that I gave him. I sent him around the world, and the Nation of
Islam all over the world, stood in admiration of him. Then he had to go
back and do the thing, which Allah (God) did not approve of, as though
Allah (God) was not able to give him a little money. In the very
beginning Allah (God) did not make the world for sport and play.
THE HOLY QURAN, teaches MR. MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIS CLAY) that the heavens
and the earth and the treasures of them all, are Allah’s (God’s). Chapter
I HAVE PROVED TO YOU, that the Black Man owns both the heavens and the
Allah (God) came for the express purpose, as it is written, to give the
kingdom to us, this means also MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY). It is written
in the Bible, that Allah (God) would give the Lost-Found the treasures of
Peoples would even come from afar to bring treasures.
THIS ARTICLE is an explanation and clarification of what I have
previously said, that MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY) made a complete fool of
himself for accepting the sport which Allah (God) condemns. These things
stand true to the eyes of the wise and the foolish.
MR. MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY) sinned against the God’s Own Promise of
Paradise for His Lost-Found People. He could read in the Bible the Reward
of the Righteous and the future of the Lost-Found.
SO MANY PARABLES in the Bible tell you that the Lost-Found Nation will
return to their homes with great joy.
MR. MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY) said and did enough in this action of
stepping down from the pulpit, to return to the world of sport, to
deceive millions of our people who are hungry to do anything for the
devil for a little money. The devil tries to tempt us with a promise of
wealth that he will never be able to fulfill. TO YOU WHO ARE SEEKING
CLARIFICATION OF MY ACTIONS, THIS IS IT.
YOU MUST REMEMBER, that Revelations – of the bible teaches you that those
who worship the enemy were deceived by the enemy. He deceived the world.
They were deceived by what he promised them. That is why they went into a
Lake of Fire.
Maybe that is what MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY) decided that he wanted to
do, but not ELIJAH MUHAMMAD.
IT DOES NOT DETRACT ONE ATOM from the truth of the Promise of Allah (God)
by them going around being the enemy of Allah (God).
THOSE OF YOU WHO DESIRE TO FOLLOW MR. MUHAMMAD ALI (CASSIUS CLAY) for the
sake of a little money from the devil, I SAY HELP YOURSELF, BUT I, ELIJAH
MUHAMMAD, WILL WAIT ON ALLAH (GOD).
MUHAMMAD ALI, IS OUT of the circle of the Brotherhood of the followers of
Islam under the Leadership and the Teachings of Elijah Muhammad, for one
(1) year Class “F”.
THIS MEANS, that Mr. Muhammad Ali (Cassius Clay) is not respected in the
society and circle of Islam for the next year, from the date of this
statement and issue of MUHAMMAD SPEAKS Newspaper.
THIS IS THE LAW, which Allah (God) gave to me with which to punish my
followers. MR. MUHAMMAD ALI shall not be recognized with us even under
the Holy Name, MUHAMMAD ALI. We will call him Cassius Clay, with us. We
take away the Name of Allah (God) from him, until he proves himself
worthy of that name. THIS IS THE LAW OF ALLAH (GOD), to me.
THE GOVERNMENT OF AMERICA has known this LAW OF ALLAH (GOD) for many
years. The Law is to take the identity card away from you. This is
written on the identity card in red letters. MR. CASSIUS CLAY did not
have one of these cards. It is good that he did not have
one.Nevertheless, we carry the Principle into practice.
THE ISLAMIC PRAYER in such case is, “O ALLAH, WE CAST OFF AND FORSAKE HIM
WHO DISOBEYS THEE AND WE ARE QUICK. WE HOPE FOR THY MERCY!” TO THOSE OF
YOU WHO ARE
CALLING AND asking for a clarification . . . you are not the judge of
this matter. This is for Allah (God) and myself to judge and not the
FOLLOWERS OF MINE, my actions taken in this matter, are taken under the
DEMAND OF ALLAH (GOD).
I HOPE this clarifies the actions taken against Mr. Cassius Clay. I hope
this answers your questions. LET THIS BE A LESSON TO YOU WHO ARE WEAK IN
