DETROIT—The 23rd anniversary of the Million Man March (MMM) and Holy Day of Atonement, with the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan at the Aretha Franklin Amphitheater here Oct. 14, was itself like another holy day.

And then, there was a miracle of sorts. The Weather Channel had predicted for two weeks that there would be rain in Detroit on Oct. 14. The temperature was a brisk 52 degrees Fahrenheit when the program began. When Min. Farrakhan entered the arena 45 minutes later, wearing a brown suit and gold bowtie, the temperature had increased to 54. The Minister assured the audience that “the God we serve is the master of climate and climate change,” promising that it would soon “heat up.”

Falsehood Cannot Undermine the Power of Truth.

By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

It seems as though that some of you are so upset by what I am saying, that you write disrespectful “tweets” and words, calling Louis Farrakhan: “Crazy Louie.” Of course, that is your prerogative to be cheap, and disrespectful, if that is what you feel. But I am in excellent company when you call me “crazy,” or a “mad man.”

When you refer to me as a “mad man” or as “crazy,” you put me in good company—in the company of The Prophets and Messengers of God who challenged the powers of their day with Truth. » CONTINUE

Holy Day of Atonement: Million Man March 23rd Anniversary Address in Detroit

By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

I'm honored and we are honored by your presence. We are honored to be in this place and we call it hallowed ground: hallowed ground because Detroit was chosen by the Son of Man, God In Person, to visit this city to start what is now known as The Nation of Islam. He came alone, He came by Himself. He used many aliases, one of them was Fard Ali. Fard meaning alone, singular, by Himself.

It is written that God would come but He was seen as a man treading the winepress alone. The Bible said He would come as a thief in the night. And, it says that if the master of the house had known in what hour the thief would appear, he would not suffer his goods to be taken. » CONTINUE

The Intensifying Universal Cry for Justice

By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

I am a student of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. The Qur’an says “every nation has received a messenger”—and my beloved Muslim family believes that the final messenger is Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. But when Prophet Muhammad came, the Western world had not been discovered, America had not been founded, slavery had not begun, and the Native American people, who are the owners of this country, had not met an enemy that deprived them and us of life, liberty and the pursuit of their happiness.

America is in need of a divine messenger and a warner from God. America is in need of someone to help her to keep her from a destructive fall. » CONTINUE

Righteous Men and Women Ready To Rule

By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful, I bear witness to the Oneness of God, the Oneness of His prophetic community and the Oneness of His People. There have been many religions, many sages and wise men and each one that taught us, taught us something good. But what God demands today is not a religion that is truth mixed with falsehood, not a religion that is somewhat good, but this is the time that God would give us One Faith, One Lord, and One Baptism.

I, too, with my brother believe in Jesus, the Christ. We say Muhammad but Muhammad is an Arabic name which means “one worthy of praise and praised much.” Jesus is worthy of praise, not the Jesus that they taught us of. Sorry. I know you love him, and you have every right to love Jesus; but it’s time that you get to know Him. Not as a White man hanging on your wall but a Black man born from your loins and from your womb. » CONTINUE

Address to the American Clergy Leadership Conference

By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan

To my beloved brother, Rev. Cornelius C. Clark, who introduced me in a manner that brought tears to my eyes, gratitude to my heart for the beautiful expression of love for God and his Christ that you exemplified this morning.
The song was most appropriate.
And to my dear pastor, Rev. T.L. Barrett, I was not the least bit disturbed in Detroit at the Aretha Franklin funeral. I smiled for nine hours because those who saw the worst in others, I really saw the best in them. So I was not bothered by an apparent disrespect because my brother bishop he embraced me on that rostrum and ushered me to that seat and hugged me and we shared love between us. » CONTINUE

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.

What's Troubling America?
