THE HONORABLE JOHN MUHAMMAD
Brothers and Sisters, I am Supreme Minister John Muhammad, the Blood
and Spiritual Brother of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad, The Messenger of Allah (May The Peace and
Blessing of Allah Be Upon Him).
I will now make myself know to All in the following: A touch of
my History in THE NATION OF ISLAM.
I am the eighth (8th) son and the thirteenth (13th) or as you
might say, the baby of thirteen (13) children of Messenger Elijah Muhammad's parents. It was five (5) girls, that made
thirteen (13) children. I was born in Cordele, Georgia. In
1923, I came to Detroit with my mother, and grandmother
and two brothers. I was a small boy.
On 1924 I joined the Baptist Church. Late in 1930 I heard Islam
as taught by Master Fard Muhammad, and by 1932 the whole family had become Muslims under the guidance of Master Fard Muhammad
and Messenger Elijah Muhammad (P.B.U.H.).
My First Post or Duty was as a helper at the door and an usher.
I became a Teacher in the University of Islam as taught by Master Fard Muhammad. Late in 1932, Master Fard Muhammad
gave me the Authority of Acting Principal of Temple No. 1, Michigan, University of Islam. I was Assistant Secretary
and Secretary. At this time there was only one Temple of Islam in this Wilderness of North America for the so-called
Early in 1933, I was permitted to the rostrum to ask the members to
give charity and Teach what I had learned in Islam. I taught the Meaning of Our FLAG OF ISLAM,
given to us by Master Fard Muhammad, I taught it as I had learned. I served in every position that is known in
The Nation of Islam, except becoming God and The Messenger of Allah; I was, for one day, Everything.
In 1933 - 1934, I was Treasurer, appointed by The Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
I had visited other meeting places before visiting at 3408 Hasting Street, which was the birth place of Master Fard in the
Teaching of Islam to the (So-Called Negro) Black Americans. I visited in Chicago, Temple #2, alone while The Messenger
was setting it up.
I made a Promise to Both Master Fard Muhammad and Messenger Elijah Muhammad
(P.B.U.H.) as they taught me to, never ever fail to carry out the work that I had been taught by them in The Nation of Islam.
Therefore, today I continue that which was taught. According to this teaching it has enough Wisdom and Understandng
of Knowledge in it, to last 9,980 years before it expires.
I have never disobeyed any of those in authority over me in this Nation
of Islam . I worked worked with all of them and obeyed their orders.
I have always taken a position or Post in The Nation of Islam, wherever
it was vacant, and was justified by those in authority over me. Master Fard Muhammad and the Captains were never turned down.
I was loved By All.
Today, I am still on my Post. My promise was in word and on paper
with ink as, "MY WORD IS MY BOND AND MY BOND IS MY LIFE, AND I WILL GIVE MY LIFE BEFORE MY WORD SHALL
FAIL," AND THIS STANDS TODAY, FIGURE FOR FIGURE.
PLEASE, ASK ME ABOUT MYSELF IN
THIS POST BEFORE ASKING OTHERS, THEY MAY NOT BE OLD ENOUGH. I DID TALK WITH GOD, IN THE PERSON OF MASTER FARD MUHAMMAD,
FACE TO FACE.
