The MGT impact the women with their display of garments and civilized manners and the FOI influence the men with their military posture and uniformity. The people love to see the Muslims of the Nation of Islam out and about in the community.

Focusing on the first work, the resurrection of our people, Nashville is hitting the streets hard, inviting all those with ears to come out and hear the teachings of the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad.

Student Minister Samuel X states, “Our objective is simple: deliver all of our ‘Original People’ in the city of Nashville to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and we can only achieve this by going into the streets where our people are, or as the popular expression is commonly said ‘bring Muhammad to the mountain.’”

With his catchy lecture titles and intergenerational approach, Student Minister Samuel X can captivate both the young and old. Student Min. Samuel X represents at various panel discussions and events such as “The Round Table Discussion: The State of the Black Man,” “Speak Your Peace” and “United We Stand Over Violence,” just to name a few.

Striving to close the gap between the Muslim community, Student Min. Samuel X spoke at  a Masjid on the importance of our unity and on our common goal as a people which is full and complete freedom (financially, economically, mentally and physically).

With these methods and work, Nashville has grown adding new MGT and FOI within the last year, into the ranks. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan tweeted “Don’t talk about your righteousness and consciousness when your people are dying in the streets and you walk right by them on a daily basis. We need to come out of the church, out of the mosque and get in the streets where the problems are.”

That’s exactly what the Muslims in Nashville are doing with the help of Allah (God). Every Sunday they provide transportation for all those who desire to hear a good word. They feed the homeless both spiritually and physically each week, and host monthly events to help build community support. 

“I am eternally grateful for the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan for the opportunity to serve our people in Allah’s Nation!” Student Min. Samuel X humbly stated.
