Master Fard Muhammad
And He said unto Abram, know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs. and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; and also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. Bible-Genesis. On the same day that the last federal troops supporting Black Reconstruction left the South, Master Fard Muhammad was born in the Holy City of Mecca, Arabia, February 26, 1877. Allah came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad to North America by Himself to show that in Him alone is the power to resurrect that which had been destroyed. So while white America celebrated the establishment of America on Independence Day in 1930, He came seeking that which was lost to declare the independence of Black America. He came to restore the Black Nation back to their original glory. He came to clean the Black Nation up into The Word and Way of Himself, Almighty God, Allah. He came to make His word his bond, fulfilling the promise made to Abraham a long time ago. Master Fard Muhammad was born with the predetermined idea to destroy the wicked and deliver the righteous from a world of sin. His mission is to bring us into the light of divine wisdom and to connect us to the Source of Power with power. At the tender age of 6-years-old He saw Himself “pushing the Duponts, the Rockefellers and all the rich, wicked rulers of this world into a lake of fire,” the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has said. His father was a wise scientist, who got pieces of wisdom from all over the earth to prepare his son for His divine mission. He spent the first 42 years of his life studying for His mission and, in fulfillment of prophesy, He searched the entire earth for the Lost and Found members of the Nation of Islam from the Tribe of Shabazz. He looked and traveled to the Isles of the Pacific, Central and South America, the jungles of Africa, all of Asia, North and South poles. He had no problem communicating to the many people He encountered because He speaks 16 languages and writes 10 perfectly. He even communicates with the animals!
He first entered America in 1910. He studied America, both Black and white. He even lived with a white family and attended a college on the west coast. He went in and out of the country several times before making Himself known. He came to the poorest community in Detroit called “Black Bottom.” He went door-to-door peddling silk. After getting in the door, He captivated His prospects with stories of the Black man’s history. He introduced himself as W.D. Fard and would ask his host to gather some friends so He could come back and share more with them. Once the living room got too small, He asked them to put some money together so they could rent out a bigger place to hold more people. That is how Temple No.1 started.
Within one year, He had approximately 25,000 followers who knew Him as
Prophet W.D. Fard.
