Peace Ya’ll! In a couple Articles dated December 20th, 2006 and July 25th, 2006 I made some very insightful “predictions” (1/1-40) about the future State of Affairs and Political Agenda of the Nation of Islam (NOI). Well my friends, over the last few months we have slowly begun to cee the manifestion of this Koran!
For those of you who haven’t already been aware of it, "Farrakhan" (Fair-or-Con) has taken some drastic measures to “Reform” (34/1-40) the structure of the NOI. Here are a few of these changes:
1. Khan has taken away Formal “Titles” of NOI Members. NOI Members have been directed to simply refer to eachother as Brotha & Sistah now, regardless of what position they held/hold in the Temple. Formal “Titles” now must be earned in the same way the surname “Muhammad” (Meaning: “One worthy of praise or praise worthy”) was traditionally earned.
2. Khan has placed Restrictions (Silenced) on NOI Ministers. Because of this, he (Khan) has been solely addressing the NOI (and those who attend the Mosque) via Satellite on Sundays.
3. The NOI have begun to lower their Registration Standards in order to recruit New Members from outside of the Nation.
If you take an honest moment to do the KNOWLEDGE (1) to the Political POWER (5) Structure of the NOI you’ll have to bear witness to the functioning reality of the KNOWLEDGE POWER (15th) Degree in the 1-40 (Lost Found Muslim Lesson #2):
Who are the 10%?
"They are the Rich Slave Makers of the Poor. Who teach the Poor Lies to believe that the Almighty True and Living God is a Spook in the Sky who can’t be seen by the physical eye. Otherwise known as Bloodsuckers of the Poor."
Some of you probably vehemently object to this b.u.t. keep an open mind and walk with me for a moment through this Degree. Whether or not Khan desires to be a 10%er is not my concern. I’m only drawing your attention to how Khan’s functioning Role and Hitlarian Status in the NOI is undeniably and without question, an Egocentric Model of the 10%!
“Rich”. Khan and those individuals who’re defined as family are definitely “RICH”. There is no doubt about this. I actually have a tape my God Brotha’ Allah Jihad sent me where Khan is braggin’ about getting Mosque Marayam’s Dome dipped in Gold and Jewel studded Marble walls. Contact Allah Jihad at his Immortalbirth Website to get a copy! This speech was made months before the Historic Million Man March where Khan had his FOI collecting garbage bags full of money during his Speech. I was there.
“Slave Makers of the Poor”. Although Khan and his family are living lavish, I’ve personally known and know NOI Followers who are receiving nothing but “Hard Times, Hunger, Nakedness and Out of Doors” (11/1-40). They’re basically “Poor” and “Made Slaves” to a Plantation styled Financial Hierarchy (Corporation). If a Parent is living it up and they have children who are going without what do you call that? It's called NEGLECT. There is no reason that Khan should be able to eat the finest foods, travel the world and cee the finest Doctors while his Followers can only afford bean soup, can’t even travel to a neighboring city without skipping a bill and their children don’t have any Health Care! THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THAT. All lives are precious and there is no person (Not Khan, Elijah or even Fard!) that's more important or valuable than you! That's the true Science of Equality! Those NOI Members who rationalize that Khan deserves the good fortune he has, and you'll undeservingly sacrifice and go without so that he can, that is the very same reason that Slaves were made, remained Emotionally Disenfranchised and were Intellectually Impoverished.
“Who teach the Poor Lies to believe that the Almighty True and Living God is a Spook in the Sky who can’t be seen by the physical eye.” Although The Lessons that were composed by Elijah & Fard clearly says that the Black Man is the True and Living God on Earth, Khan teaches that Fard is God, and that he’s unceen by the physical eye because he is on the Mothership. According to Fard and Elijah themselves THIS IS A LIE! No where in our Lessons does it state that Fard is God. He is only referred to as "A Prophet". The Poor believe this "Mystery Fard" (10/1-40) Bullshit because they obviously “don’t know” any better. This is the epitome of ignorance!
“Bloodsuckers of the Poor.” Anytime you loose blood it weakens you. I don’t know any NOI Member who has gathered Financial strength and stability from consistently giving up most of their check to the Local Temple so that the majority of it can be sent to Khan! I’ve met and know many NOI Members who are both Emotionally and Intellectually weak. This is a functional observation, not name calling! If what/how you think doesn’t function outside the capacity of someone else, you’re weak. I talk to youth damn near everyday about being a follower and copying people. If you’re not Original, you’re Grafted and that shit's weak. Because of the Financial, Emotional, Psychological, Social and Physical demands upon NOI Followers who “belong to” (that’s right!) a Local Mosque, they really don’t have the aptitude, energy or focus to get out of their Poverty.
Like I said, I’m only pointing out function. Khan is functioning as the 10%. Now when it comes to the Politics behind the Socioeconomic changes he’s made and will continue to make it doesn’t shock me that he had to resort to “take everything from them (Titles) but their language and make them walk every step of the way” (4/1-14) to get back in good graces with him. I guarantee that some Local Mosque or Study Group in 'Who Gives a Damn' USA will resort to some very drastic measures in order to “get a name for themselves”! In my estimation, these changes were made to spark competition amongst “Believers” so that they'll really start hustlin’ for Khan! It’s just a shame that they don’t put forth this much "proactive" energy to enrich their own lives. Anyway, alot of thoughts ran through my Mind when I got this wire! Here are some of them:
1. Only a Follower can get their “Title” taken away! A Leader is “a Said Person of that Ability” (20/1-40) because they functionally adhere to “The Prescribed Law” (20/1-40) that defines Leadership. This is something that can never be taken away! NOI “Believers” have never been encouraged to become their own Leaders, and have not been orientated in such a way where they can ever be on the same Intellectual/Financial Footing as Khan (and his Aristocratic Class). The next phrase of the (4-1/14) after taking everything from them but their language and making them walk every step of the way states, “it was 2,200 miles. He went savage and lived in the caves of Europe”. To many people, taking their “Title” away from them is like dying! It’s too ego shattering. Oftentimes you hear of people going crazy or committing suicide because their “Title” (or name) has been taken away! "EU means 'hillsides' ROPE means 'Rope to bind in'” (4/1-14). Taking away Members Titles may have a humbling “Hillside” effect (Hill: 'MAN MADE' ELEVATION of land) where people may start evaluating “savagery” from the perspective of how they’ve “lost the Knowledge of themselves” (2/1-14), and use this time as an opportunity to build themselves up (elevate) from a state of ignorance. In other words, this can serve as a wake-up call to let them know that they need to do more studying and less “yes sirin’” and yes maamin’”; Blow the dust off their Supreme Wisdom Book and quit bullshittin’! In most cases, people will feel this move as a “Rope to bind in” their sense of intellectual autonomy and simply fall off and resort to “living a beast way of life” (4/1-14). Nothing different than when Warith Deen took over the NOI when Elijah went back to the Essence (or jumped on the Mothership like some of ya'll say!). Many people died or simply went crazy!
2. To Nationally silence your Ministers is a huge statement! It’s Like benching your whole starting line-up, telling the entire team that NO POSITIONS are taken and that if you want the job YOU BETTER WORK FOR IT! Local “Believers” (Followers) have been looking up to these people for years and for Khan to basically tell these Local Leaders to “shut the fuck up, sit down, I’ll do it myself” -even though he’s in the Health Condition he’s in- isn’t very comforting or reassuring to Local “Believers” (Followers)! Some NOI will rationalize that it’s an urgency to get a message out and Khan simply wants everybody’s undivided attention. That’s bullshit! Niggas just ain’t fulfilling their Socioeconomic Quotas of making Followers who’ll be Financially Committed to Khan. Now they're either gonna hustle extra hard or simply fall off and let Lil’ Brotha So & So take their place! How ego shattering could that be?!
3. The fact that Khan can simply “take peoples lives away with the stroke of a pen” like that Shows and Proves how being in the NOI without 120 (Supreme Wisdom) puts you in a very vulnerable position! Without Knowledge of Self and the ability to lead yourself, you lack the proper Intellectual Disaster Preparedness to weather a storm, especially when you’re hit wit by this ego shattering Hurricane 'Khantrina'. Louisiana should have taught us something about "building a home for yourself" (4/1-14) where “faulty built Levee’s” support your livelihood and how even animals have enough sense to “seek higher ground” when they cee the clouds rolling in.
4. For years snobby NOI Members have looked down upon the Nation of Gods and Earths (NGE) as some type of bastardized misinterpretation of “The Teachings”. Through all of this, it’s been these same so-called Unruly, Street Bawlin’, Unrestrictive Law Abiding, Sword Swinin' Urban Ronin’s who have been truest to what Elijah taught! So true that we have ensured that this Knowledge can never be taken away from us! From a NGE perspective, learning 120 Lessons through a qualified Enlightener is the process of “Following to learn to Lead yourself”, and once YOU know, YOU know! And as I said, “what YOU know can never be taken away from YOU”! The Father (along with other Brothers) who undoubtedly had the Knowledge of God accepted, responded and adhered to only one “self appointed” inherent Title; ALLAH. The fundamental reason why they had to leave the NOI is because within the Hierarchal Structure of the NOI you couldn’t express the true autonomous, self created reality of being ALLAH. Those “Followers” (Believers) who never came/come into this realization (like most NOI today!) comfortably accept(ed) the limited functioning roles/conceptualizations of a Captain, Lieutenant or Private Soldier because that’s how they “simply” cee themselves.
5. Demoting Members (especially Elders, Ministers, Captains and etc..) to just a plain “Brotha” and “Sistah” who may have lived years within the NOI Ranks with these Titles is gonna have far reaching effects! Khan most likely didn’t say it this way b.u.t. “Most of ya’ll Niggas don’t deserve to be called anything but a basic Brotha or Sistah!”. What type of hoops that "Believers" have to jump through in order to earn a “higher position” (Title) on this Pyramid Business Scheme is yet to be ceen and heard! But a bet my bottom dollar that it ain’t got shit to do with Supreme Wisdom! As I stated a long time ago, the NOI (under Khan) has slowly shifted their orientation to the point where the true “Teachings” are just a figment of their Nation Imagination. Many present day Members of the NOI don’t even have a elementary Knowledge of Yacub, probably think Baby Gee is a cat who’s down wit Weezy, and zealously talk about their belief in the Mothership but never heard of Nippon. If Khan is doing this to begin “re-rooting” ignorant ass Followers with a proper foundation (Supreme Wisdom) then I applaud him for his efforts! Either he’s been reading my Articles or he’s honestly come to terms with the Intellectual Botch Job he’s done on "HIS" Followers by putting more of an emphasis on selling papers and looking civilized instead of learning to recite & study their Lessons (Supreme Wisdom) in order to Father/Mother Civilization, like he has!
6. This Reformation will appreciate the value of 120 Lessons (Supreme Wisdom) and those unique individuals who use it as their Cultural Navigation System. Finding people who actually recite 120 Lessons, speak it’s Language, implement it’s Procedures and live by it’s Universal Principles will begin to be more and more rare! As the NOI continues to move more towards becoming a Quasi-Islamic Social Group and a remnant of what they once were, honest truth seekers who’re swimming in these treacherous tides amongst 85% Followers and 10% Opportunists will start developing an honest appreciation for 5% of the populace who “always have been” about The Lessons “and always will be” (38/1-40)! It’s a classic example of the rejected stone now being the cornerstone.
7. By lowering their Registration Standards in order to recruit New Members from outside of the Nation, the NOI is taking a huge risk of trading quantity for quality. I definitely cee this being a Economic “Determined Idea” (22/1-40) and it in the long run it’ll only hurt the NOI. Me and my God Brotha’ Sha was building about this and he humorously said, “Shiiiiit, Khan tryin’ to move units God! That shit just like tha Industry. He cee T.D. Jakes goin’ Triple Platinum and he tryin’ to get some paper too!” Back during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, the Miami Police Department was basically outgunned and outmanned during their Historical Miami Drug Wars! In order to try and combat the crime, they drastically lowered the Drug/Criminal Background Requirements/Standards so that People could enroll in the Police Academy in order to create a larger Police Presence in the City! The results were a disastrous self fulfilled prophesy! One entire class ended up going to jail over a period of years following their graduation. Other Police Officers were suspended and fired for crimes ranging from DWI to Drug Indictments. Not saying that Philly ‘Black Mafia’ Temples will start poppin’ up everywhere because Khan is trying to be so inclusive, b.u.t. I am saying that Niggas can get on some shit when they think the coast is clear!
To conclude today's Article, I hope some of ya'll don't get what I'm saying twisted! I'm not tryin' to knock Khan's Hustle! I'm simply showing & proving it is a Hustle. Khan is good at what he does b.u.t. in all these years can you actually name one person in the entire NOI who is intellectually qualified to step up to the plate when he goes back to the essence?! At least back in the day Malcom X. (as he was referred as at the time) had a Ministers Class full of Dynamic Brotha's who could spit flames and were just as sharp (if not sharper!) than he was! He knew that "a True Master prepares the way for Grand Masters"! Unfortunately, this is not the case with the Present Day NOI. When all the smoke clears lets just hope that our "Brotha's" and "Sistahs" will learn that "There is no Mystery God" and stop "searching for that, that does not exist" (10/1-40) in any Leader other than what they cee in the mirror! Because at the end of the day, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE for acquiring and preserving YOUR OWN 12 Jewels. Lead ya self.
