The Majesty of Master Fard Muhammad's Love

By The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

The Old Testament of the Bible is considered a testament of law. The New Testament is considered a testament of love.

The Fall of AMERICA

By THE HONORABLE MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN

We are in love with our former slave-masters and their children. When people say, “I love everybody,” that is foolish because Allah (God) does not love everybody. He said He loved Jacob but He hated Esau. So if God is our example and He can love and hate, then do not be afraid to love and do not be afraid to hate. If you love God, then you hate the things that God hates and you love the things that God loves. Even though your people are mired in the things that God hates, He loves them enough to keep on calling them out of what He hates until He makes them an object of His extreme favor.

Pharaoh has let us go, but there is a problem with us. If someone does not want us in their house and kicks us, yet we do not get the hint; so he kicks us again, but we are still holding on to the leg that he is kicking us; then, he kicks us with the other one and we do not have sense enough to let go of him—then, that person needs to beat the hell out of us. » CONTINUE

The Challenge to Change: Who is Your Leader, God or Satan?

By HONORABLE MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN

What is meant by the virgin birth? Every woman is a virgin before she meets a man. Mary (Mother of Jesus) was an extraordinarily righteous woman. She was so pure that the Holy Qur’an says of Mary, that she is the best of women. She was so good a woman until the angels argued among themselves as to who would have charge over Mary. She was such a special woman because she had to bring into the world a very special man to bring us the challenge to change. » CONTINUE

Separation Or Death

By HONORABLE MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN

Many people do not wish to say that the human is divine, but we call The Creation divine. The sun is divine, the moon is divine, the stars are divine, the trees, the seas, the oceans, the mountains, the rivers. ... They are divine because they come from The Originator of Divine. So if we can ascribe divinity to the things that He created, and the greatest of God’s creation is the human being, then why should we not understand that in the human being is the spark of divine that has been put out in the last 6,000 years of the rule of other than divine? » CONTINUE
