CHICAGO—The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered Part 2 of his Saviours’ Day message to a standing room-only crowd at the Nation of Islam’s international headquarters Mosque Maryam.

After delivering an intense message a week earlier to thousands at the historic Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Minister Farrakhan—looking, sounding and standing very strong Feb. 28 during his message lasting over three hours—discussed his recent trip to the Islamic Republic of Iran, the contentious political scene in America, and what the future holds for Black people.

With thousands more viewing live via internet webcast, the Minister said no matter where he travels on the planet, he has always and will continue to raise the name of his teacher, the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.

“I have not failed to uplift his name or his teachings no matter what they offered me—and they offered me much,” said Min. Farrakhan.

In Iran, the Minister stood firm on the position that Master Fard Muhammad is the Great Mahdi, the powerful self-guided one prophesized to bring Islam back to its proper course and to sit down tyrants in the earth. As Min. Farrakhan has consistently stated, Black people are a very special people because they have received a visitation from God. Others who are critical of his position by saying he and the members of the Nation of Islam are “not real Muslims” have not experienced the same levels of success in their efforts to spread Islam. Many have become envious of the Minister’s continued success and ability to reach large audiences with his message.

“Envy is the most ignoble of human characteristics,” the Minister continued, “you are angry with me because God has made me successful in your midst. I can be no more than what Allah made me.”

In fact, it is his consistency and peacemaking example shown among Black people in America who are followers of Islam that can be used as an example for others. 

Following the departure of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad, his late son, Imam Warith Deen Mohammed led many members of the Nation of Islam towards Sunni Islam. When Min. Farrakhan stood to rebuild the Nation of Islam on the fundamental tenets espoused by Mr. Muhammad, there were some tense times, however, never the level of conflict seen currently in Muslim nations across the globe.

Although some sought to harm or kill Min. Farrakhan, and he had supporters with him who were willing to harm or kill his enemies, Min. Farrakhan never used his influence to wage war in that manner. He simply continued to teach and go about his mission, and now, some who once opposed him now support him because of his steadfastness and integrity.

Min. Farrakhan said his faith in God allows him to keep from bowing to religious authorities in Mecca, Medina, or Rome and the politically powerful in Washington, D.C. “I belong to Allah and his Messiah, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad,” he said.

Even some former followers of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad who claim to love the Messenger but do not follow or support Min. Farrakhan, he spoke straight words to them: “If you are not following me, you are not following the Messenger of God and you are a hypocrite!” he stated forthrightly.

The Arabs have lost the way and the Muslim world has descended into sectarianism allowing those who all claim to be followers of Islam to behead each other and bomb each other’s mosques, said Min. Farrakhan.

Obedience to God is the natural religion for all and didn’t start with Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, observed Min. Farrakhan. Islam was present in the very beginning and is “rooted in the nature of God,” he explained.

Minister Farrakhan said the people of Iran are much different from what is reported in the media and represented by those with political agendas. Israel wants America to strike Iran militarily. Before America attacks a nation militarily, she must demonize the nation, causing hatred to grow to justify unjust actions, he said.

“They are wonderful people that the American media has demonized,” said the Minister.

During the trip in early February, the Minister touched many high level officials as he spoke about the “evolution of the revolution.”

“Imam Khomeini started an Islamic revolution,” the Minister said, “but no revolution is perfect.” He advised Iranian political officials to “pay attention to the dissatisfied” because the enemy will “produce a counterrevolution by misusing those who are dissatisfied.”

The universe is imperfect and societies are imperfect, in Iran and throughout the planet, the Minister noted. “No matter how good things are there will always be dissatisfaction and there’s dissatisfaction because there is not perfection.”

God creates dissatisfaction to keep us growing and evolving until we reach perfection, he said. There is dissatisfaction in Iran with the revolution, particularly among the young, but maybe in their dissatisfaction is “the kernel of what is to come,” the Minister said. If you throw away those who are unhappy America comes, as she has throughout the Muslim world, feeds legitimate dissatisfaction with lies, false accusations and incites hatred against the revolution of those who started the revolution, he said.

Men and women from all walks of life listened attentively to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan give Part 2 of the lecture, “Divine Instructions: Commands for 2016.”
The enemy does this to “destroy the fruit of the revolution. I said to my Iranian family the counter revolution is already here so pay attention. Because the enemy wants to destroy the fruit of the revolution and the tree of revolution. If you keep feeding it, it keeps growing. It keeps changing, it keeps evolving the fruit gets richer, the fruit gets more powerful,” the Minister explained.

The Minister has called for Saudi Arabia and Iran, regional powers and rivals, to find a way to peace. America wants to exploit divisions between majority Sunni Saudi Arabia, which is her ally, and majority Shia Iran, which she has treated as an enemy, to rule both nations, he has warned.

Minister Farrakhan also shared how Iranian leaders called him “the New Bilal,” denoting that like the Ethiopian Black man who was the first caller to prayer in Islam, the Muslim leader from America is calling the faith of Islam back to the proper path. I must know God is the Greatest if I can stand inside America and outside America and condemn the country’s evil, he said.

Those at very high levels who influence America’s foreign policies plotted to destroy Muslim nations a decade before the destruction of the World Trade Center Twin Towers and used false flag operations to kill Americans in order to achieve Satanic political objectives, the Minister noted.

America needed a “cataclysmic event” similar to Pearl Harbor that could be used to galvanize and unite the American people against a common enemy, he continued. The events of September 11, 2001 gave them what they needed, he said.

Influential people were “sitting in the Pentagon planning the restructuring of Muslim nations,” said the Minister. In fact, it was revealed that they desired regime change in seven Muslim nations in five years, they were: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran. Afghanistan and Egypt “came along for the ride” said the Minister because Hosni Mubarak’s downfall was not expected.

“In every nation, they have agents. In every organization they have agents and they get among sincere people,” the Minister said. “The same thing that is happening over there, they want to make it happen here.” But, he warned, the rotten enemies and hypocrites not to try to act out their wicked plans.  Allah knows these wicked ones, I don’t, but I am satisfied that Allah knows these hypocrites and controls you, he added.

America likes to portray herself as the standard-bearer for ethical conduct, morality, and decency, but in the eyes of the world in watching the rancorous political discourse, the brutal police killings, and problems in this country, the world is challenging America’s authority and her influence is waning, he said.

“You better look at these devils and then look at their lies!” said Min. Farrakhan. “Oh America! Your day has arrived.”

America’s divided political scene


Minister Farrakhan told the crowd that none of the candidates running for president should be expected to fulfill their promises. They only tell Black people what they want to hear because they want the Black vote and cannot be elected without it, he said.

Minister Farrakhan said there is a civil war brewing in the Republican Party. The political establishment is threatened by businessman Donald Trump’s success. Even though politicians usually bow to money, Mr. Trump is using his own and is not beholden to the financial support of lobbyists, the Minister said. Most notably, Mr. Trump told Israel at first lobby in America that he did not want nor need their money, which means they cannot control him, he added.

“They have decided that he must never become president,” said Min. Farrakhan. “They can’t afford to give up control of the presidency of the United States.”

Regarding Democrat and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Min. Farrakhan drew attention to her actions spanning decades. She is no friend of Black people, and although she says good things about President Barack Obama now, Min. Farrakhan believes once more emails are revealed, it will be shown how she deceived and maneuvered the president into action, specifically regarding Libya.

“I don’t blame you for wanting a female president, but that is a wicked woman,” said Min. Farrakhan. “(Hillary Clinton) orchestrated the destruction of Libya and the killing of Muammar Gadhafi,” he said. “Gadhafi was my friend, he was my brother.”

She also helped orchestrate the assassination of Col. Gadhafi. Min. Farrakhan said she lied saying Col. Gadhafi was going to kill his own people.

“No he wasn’t, he was just going to kill those rebels that America—seizing on their dissatisfaction—made a counterrevolutionary move and then used it to bring NATO in to bomb and destroy his air defenses and then move to kill him. Now Libya is a failed state,” said the Minister.

In 1996, Hillary Clinton described Black youth as “super-predators” while stumping for her husband, then President Bill Clinton’s criminal justice reforms.

“Mass incarceration came about under the Clintons! Don’t forget that. They call my young gang bangers super-predators and Black Lives Matter put it to her, and she didn’t know how to handle that. Called you a super-predator, that has no conscience, no sensitivity like you’re a dog, or you’re an animal! Got to bring you to heel my young brothers! This is what she said about you! And she didn’t just say it—it became law and policy of the U.S. government under Bill Clinton and his wife, and now she is apologizing, but apologizing can’t bring back the broken families. Apologizing can’t bring back those that have been destroyed in prison life.”

On Sen. Bernie Sanders, Minister Farrakhan said the Vermont political leader is trying to be decent, but he can’t do what he is calling for. The solution is for Blacks, Native American, Hispanics and Veterans to unite under the banner of the Justice Party, the Minister said.

“Let’s build our own political machine. Anybody that feels that the government has not given them justice, then we’re going to form the Justice Party,” said Min. Farrakhan. “We’re going to do it this year. Let’s come out of the Democratic plantation.”

The Republicans are no better and neither Mr. Trump, nor any candidate, can solve America’s problems unless they deal with the problem of justice for Black people in America, he said. The solution is for Black people to be placed in a land or territory of their own, with U.S. government support until Blacks can be self-sufficient, the Minister said. Watch the weather because more calamities will strike as God punishes America for her evil done to Black people, he added.

Reactions to an electrifying message

Islamic scholar Dr. Wesley Muhammad, a member of the Nation of Islam’s Research Group, accompanied Min. Farrakhan on his trip to Iran. He described the Minister’s message as “uplifting and liberating.”

“This is just the beginning of what the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan will reveal and unfold to us about how the superpower of the Middle East received our man Farrakhan and recognizing how the superpower of the Middle East—the superpower of the Muslim world—received our Minister is empowering and significant.”

Memphis-based Student Minister Demetric Muhammad, who travels across the country conducting research seminars related to clearing up misunderstandings regarding stubborn rumors about the Nation of Islam’s history and legacy, is also a member of the Nation of Islam’s Research Group. He described the Minister’s message as “epic, brilliant, and magnificent.”

“He gave us insight into his tour and the reasons behind his visit to Iran; he gave us the history of the rebuilding of the Nation of Islam and how the Nation of Islam is actually an example to our brothers and sisters in the Islamic world of how we can disagree and not be disagreeable and not shed each other’s blood. There was much food for everybody in today’s message,” he added.

Dr. Wesley Muhammad, International Representative Abdul Akbar Muhammad, National Imam Sultan Rahman Muhammad and Final Call editor Richard B. Muhammad also spoke at the opening of the program. Each shared their thoughts, impressions and insights into the historic trip at Mosque Maryam prior to the Minister’s keynote address.
