     Information abt so called Islamic groups

The Nation of Islam (NOI) is a religious and social/political organization founded in the United States by Wallace Fard Muhammad in 1930 with an aim of resurrecting the spiritual, mental, social, and economic condition of the black men and women of America and the rest of the world.

Minister Louis Farrakhan is currently the leader of a reconstituted Nation of Islam, the original organization having been renamed and eventually dissolved by Warith Deen Muhammad. The Nation of Islam's National Center and headquarters is located in Chicago, Illinois and houses its flagship Mosque No. 2, Mosque Maryam in dedication to Mary, mother of Jesus.

The original Nation of Islam was founded in the U.S. in 1930 by Wallace Fard Muhammad also known as Master W. D. Fard Muhammad (1877, 1891 or 1893?1934 or later), whom the Nation of Islam believes to be the long-awaited "Messiah" of the Jews and the Mahdi of the both the Sunni and Shia Muslims. One of Fard's first disciples was Elijah Poole, whose name Fard later changed to Elijah Muhammad (1897-1975). Elijah Muhammad began preaching that W.F. Muhammad was literally God in person.

The official platform of beliefs as stated by Elijah Muhammad in Message to the Blackman in America published in 1965 .

1. WE BELIEVE In the One God whose proper Name is Allah.

2. WE BELIEVE in the Holy Qur'an and in the Scriptures of all the Prophets of God.

3. WE BELIEVE in the truth of the Bible, but we believe that it has been tampered with and must be reinterpreted so that mankind will not be snared by the falsehoods that have been added to it.

4. WE BELIEVE in Allah's Prophets and the Scriptures they brought to the people.

5. WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of the dead--not in physical resurrection--but in mental resurrection. We believe that the so-called Negroes are most in need of mental resurrection; therefore they will be resurrected first.

Furthermore, we believe we are the people of God's choice, as it has been written, that God would choose the rejected and the despised. We can find no other persons fitting this description in these last days more than the so-called Negroes in America. We believe in the resurrection of the righteous.

6. WE BELIEVE in the judgment; we believe this first judgment will take place as God revealed, in America.

7. WE BELIEVE this is the time in history for the separation of the so-called Negroes and the so-called white Americans. We believe the black man should be freed in name as well as in fact. By this we mean that he should be freed from the names imposed upon him by his former slave masters. Names which identified him as being the slave master's slave. We believe that if we are free indeed, we should go in our own people's names--the black people of the Earth.

8. WE BELIEVE in justice for all, whether in God or not; we believe as others, that we are due equal justice as human beings. We believe in equality--as a nation--of equals. We do not believe that we are equal with our slave masters in the status of "freed slaves."

We recognize and respect American citizens as independent peoples and we respect their laws which govern this nation.

9. WE BELIEVE that the offer of integration is hypocritical and is made by those who are trying to deceive the black peoples into believing that their 400-year-old open enemies of freedom, justice and equality are, all of a sudden, their "friends." Furthermore, we believe that such deception is intended to prevent black people from realizing that the time in history has arrived for the separation from the whites of this nation.

If the white people are truthful about their professed friendship toward the so-called Negro, they can prove it by dividing up America with their slaves.

We do not believe that America will ever be able to furnish enough jobs for her own millions of unemployed, in addition to jobs for the 20,000,000 black people as well.

10. WE BELIEVE that we who declare ourselves to be righteous Muslims, should not participate in wars which take the lives of humans. We do not believe this nation should force us to take part in such wars, for we have nothing to gain from it unless America agrees to give us the necessary territory wherein we may have something to fight for.

11. WE BELIEVE our women should be respected and protected as the women of other nationalities are respected and protected.

12. WE BELIEVE that Allah (God) appeared in the Person of Master W. Fard Muhammad, July, 1930; the long-awaited "Messiah" of the Christians and the "Mahdi" of the Muslims.

We believe further and lastly that Allah is God and besides HIM there is no god and He will bring about a universal government of peace wherein we all can live in peace together.

The Nation of Gods and Earths:

The group was founded by Clarence 13X (n? Clarence Jowars Smith), who was deified by Five Percenters as Allah, and was also called the Father or Father Allah. He was credited with originating the teachings that form the foundations of the Five-Percenter movement. A Korean War veteran and martial-arts expert, he was a member of the Nation of Islam and attended NOI Temple #7 in Harlem, New York, where Malcolm X was a minister from 1960 to 1963. Following his questioning about the unique divinity of Wallace Fard Muhammad being in opposition to the core teachings of the NOI, which taught of the divinity of all Black men, Clarence was disciplined by the group, and he was eventually excommunicated sometime in 1963. This led Clarence 13X to shed his Black Muslim name and beliefs and to teach his own interpretation of NOI teachings. He found success in late 1964 with the disenfranchised youth on the streets of Harlem, and he won many young converts to his movement. The Five Percenters established a headquarters in the Harlem section of Manhattan, known as the Allah School in Mecca, in 1967 with the help of the Republican mayor of New York, John Lindsay, and his assistant, Barry Gottehrer.

The schism between Clarence and the NOI led to numerous confrontations. The murder of Clarence 13X in 1969 remains unsolved, but it has been blamed on a number of different culprits ranging from the FBI and the New York Police Department to the Nation of Islam. The murder was a blow to the movement, but according to the direct orders of Clarence before his departure, some of Clarence?s earliest disciples, a group of nine men who were called the First Nine Born, carried on the teachings, and an acting leadership role was assumed by his good friend, Justice. In the years to follow, the Five Percenters gained a varied reputation, from being called an unruly group of Black teenage thugs?even categorized as a gang by some?to being known as outstanding members of and contributors to their communities.

Some apologists for the NGE claim that, doctrinally, the difference between the Nation of Islam and the Nation of Gods and Earths is more a matter of degree than principle. It is important to note that the original schism between the NOI and the NGE was Clarence 13X?s refusal to accept the sole divinity of Wallace Fard Muhammad. In this way, the NOI is like other mystery religions substituting Wallace Fard Muhammad as the focus of worship.

The members of the NGE view themselves as their own God (both individually and collectively the Original Man). Five Percenters sometimes refer to themselves as scientists, implying their search for knowledge and proof, and not beliefs and theories.

The teachings of the Nation of Gods and Earths are passed on through oral tradition, much like the griots of west Africa. The advancement of a Five Percenter is based on his or her memorization, recitation, comprehension, and practical application of the Supreme Mathematics and the Supreme Alphabet?lessons written by Clarence 13X?and also the 120 Lessons (a revised version of the Supreme Wisdom lessons of the NOI, originally written by Wallace Fard Muhammad and Elijah Muhammad).

The basic teachings of the Nation of Gods and Earths are as follows:

1.Black people are the original people of the planet earth.

2.Black people are the fathers and mothers of civilization.

3.The science of Supreme Mathematics is the key to understanding humankind's relationship to the universe.

4.Islam is a natural way of life, not a religion.

5.Education should be fashioned to enable us to be self-sufficient as a people.

6.Each one should teach one according to their knowledge.

7.The Blackman is God and his proper name is Allah:

8.Our children are our link to the future, and they must be nurtured, respected, loved, protected, and educated.

9.The unified Black family is the vital building block of the Nation

Hijab Al Faisal: [Edit]
these groups are the only source of teaching children and let them know about what their true religion is. living in non Muslim states and their up bringing their children to save them from all those devils is really tough for parents but by joining these kind of right groups one can be educated properly.
