DETROIT ( - Some of the leading representatives of the Nation of Islam’s ministry class spoke to an army of Muslims deputized as “Defenders of Farrakhan” during an informative plenary session in the Grand Riverview Ballroom of the Cobo Center as a part of Saviours’ Day 2014.

Panelists said the time has arrived for those who are truly with the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan to mount a strong, logical, research-based defense of a divine man—and not simply be spectators  or on an emotional roller coaster like fans at a sporting event. 

For the many years Minister Farrakhan’s character and record has been attacked by those who control the media, he has never stopped sacrificing, never backed down from challenging injustice, and never stopped challenging wickedness and the forces of evil, panelists said. Those who are with him now have to show and prove that they are willing to make the same level of sacrifice, they added.

“It is the end of the time of being neither this nor that,” said Dr. Ava Muhammad, national spokesperson for Minister Farrakhan and Nation of Islam attorney.

Ishmael Muhammad said the Minister must be fully represented by his ministers and his followers in terms of his divinity by using the Bible and the Holy Qur’an.

“You can’t defend what you don’t know, and you can’t defend what you don’t love! You defend what you love!” said Ishmael Muhammad Feb. 21. He serves as the Minister’s national assistant.

It is easy to see a showdown between good and evil is taking place, he continued. All one has to do is look at how the wicked respond to what Min. Farrakhan is saying and doing, he said.

“Satan knows the Son of God!” said Ishmael Muhammad.

Nuri Muhammad, a leading student minister who travels regularly to national events to represent the Nation, agreed. In the final episodes of the Minister’s 58-week online lecture series “The Time and What Must Be Done,” Min. Farrakhan spoke unambiguous words regarding his identity.

“He is who he is and we will say it and defend it with great truth,” said Nuri Muhammad. Panelists said the Minister is a divine man who fulfills scripture as he goes about his work for his teacher, the Hon. Elijah Muhammad.

“The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is more like Jesus than any other historical figure,” said Demetric Muhammad, author of several books and a member of the Nation of Islam’s Research Group.

“He is a man who has called Satan out by name. He does not just give us some ambiguous symbolic description of evil in America, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has identified the prime actors and prime movers in that world of Satan, particularly, the synagogue of Satan,” said Demetric Muhammad.

He then delivered a timeline related to Jewish organization and U.S. government efforts to undermine the work of the Nation of Islam to isolate and marginalize the Minister. Demetric Muhammad has traveled to several cities delivering a seminar titled “Defending Farrakhan.”

Nuri Muhammad described Dr. Muhammad as a “queen on the chessboard” always ready to protect and defend the king. She was lauded for her effective defense and legal explanation delivered at Mosque Maryam in Chicago titled “The Charges: Blasphemy and Sedition.”

“Sedition. This is what Jesus was charged with,” said Dr. Muhammad. “Sedition is really a means of control.”

Ava Muhammad emphasized members of the Nation of Islam must close a gap in moving with their Minister. One cannot simply see the Minister in terms of where he was as a popular and effective minister in Boston and New York, or when he was delivering lectures at the Final Call Administration during a certain stage of rebuilding the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s work, she explained. His spiritual journey must be viewed in context, and in the fullness of time, she said.

“We have pledged allegiance to our flag, the sun, the moon, the stars! We have pledged allegiance to our God, Master Fard Muhammad! We have pledged allegiance to the Christ, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad! We have pledged allegiance to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan with our mind, our heart and we are willing to lay down our lives at any time, any place!” she said.
