This book represents some of the guiding principles taught to us by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. This man and his teachings have been responsible for transforming the lives of millions of black men and women, many of whom this society has rejected as incorrigible, irredeemable, irreformable, irretrievable, hopeless and lost. Yet, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, with the Word of Allah (God), has been able to initiate the process of our salvation, redemption and resurrection, which continues to this day.... This book is humbly submitted as a torchlight for guiding the country out from its present condition toward a more peaceful and productive society in which mutual respect governs the relations between the diverse members of America. --- excerpts from book's Preface

He writes in the Preface to this 1993 book, "This book represents some of the guiding principles taught to us by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. This man and his teachings have been responsible for transforming the lives of millions of black men and black women, many of whom this society had rejected as incorrigible, irredeemable, irreformable, irretrievable, hopeless, and lost. Yet, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, with the Word of Allah (God), has been able to initiate the process of our salvation, redemption and resurrection, which continues to this day."
Here are some quotations from the book:
"I'm happy to see the brothers and sisters in sports and entertainment making money. However, I am appealing to them, what are you doing with the money to help your people? What kind of opportunity is paraded before our young, when there are only about a thousand positions for our talented sports figures but there are millions of black children suffering, who can never become professional athletes to escape from their condition?" (Pg. 38)
"Certainly a business would not want to come to a city where crime is rampant. However, whenever there is a substantial presence of influence by members of the Nation of Islam, a relatively crime-free area develops. A peaceful atmosphere has to be returned to the cities in order for business to feel secure in returning. We can help establish that peaceful atmosphere in the cities." (Pg. 79)
"The fact is that due to the high rate of recidivism, most of the street crime in this country is perpetuated by the same set of people. Instead of being reformed, a substantial number of people are recycled through committing crime and then being incarcerated again and again... We have an idea for addressing the problem of crime and reforming the so-called criminal..." (Pg. 115)
"I am not asking the government to make Africa the dumping ground for America's rejects. I am asking that American support us in first reforming the so-called criminal element among our people, and then placing them in an environment that will manifest their hidden gifts and talents." (Pg. 118)
"Recently we received a contract to partol a Los Angeles apartment complex. In just two months the police reported that crime decreased 75%. What do we have that the police don't have? We love our people." (Pg. 122)
"Am I really an anti-Semite? Am I really a hater? Can these charges be proven? When people disagree, the intelligent and rational thing to do is to have a dialogue. Perhaps through dialogue differences can be reconciled." (Pg. 157)
If you are even a little interested about Min. Farrakhan, read this book. This is a good chance to hear him without the media or anyone else interjecting. Min. Farrakhan has a track record (more than 45 years at the time of this writing ) of teaching the truth to the powerless. He has a proven track record of reforming people. He has a proven methodology for teaching Islam to people who have no knowledge of the faith. He has a proven track record of unifying Muslims, Jews and Christians (see: [...] or [...] ). He is a guiding light for people.
I am thankful to God for Min. Farrakhan. God has used Min. Farrakhan to guide me into healthy personal, professional, and emotional relationships.
If you still think funny about him in spite of my testamony, read this book, and e-mail me about it: email@example.com .
I am sure reading this book will make you see differently. I am sure Min. Farrakhan's brilliance will illuminate everyone who reads it.
Peace. *Bro. Matthew
