Farrakhan: The Successor of Messenger Elijah Muhammad?
MESSENGER ELIJAH MUHAMMAD
MEETS THE PRESS
Excerpt Reprinted from Muhammad Speaks Newspaper February 4, 1972
Question: After you are gone, Mr. Muhammad, the Nation of Islam will
continue to exist, but how?
Messenger Muhammad: It will be a New Islam to what the Old Orthodox Islam
is today. It will be all together a new one.
Question: You mean your successor will reside over a new Islam?
Messenger Muhammad: There will be no Successor. There is no need for a
successor when a man has got the divine truth and has brought you face to
face with God.
Question: How will your resources be administered?
Messenger Muhammad: That will be carried on by the Nation, after setting
up the Nation on the right way or right path to take care of themselves.
They do not need any more instructions on that. They will follow it as
the Constitution of America has been followed.
Question: Will it be run by local Mosques?
Messenger Muhammad: No. No. No. After this, the whole entire Nation of
Black people will be governed divinely and the government will be a
divine government. And not something that is governed locally like we
have today. We will have a divine government set up for us and it will
stand forever. We will not need any change.
