    Examine the following comparisons between Islam and Farrakhanism with
    regard to the belief or practice in each:




    Belief/Practice





    - God/Allah Alone ..............................................

    ISLAM: One Unique, all wise all seeing all hearing all wise all powerfull never appeared in any physical form; a man, woman, animal or idol hence, no physical representation creator is the creator and the creation is creation and the creator has superior attributies to the creation and never becomes the imperfect limted feeble and weak and ignorant creation . He is recognized through his 99
    names. some are mention above

    FARRAKHANISM: "...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."




    3. - Prophet/Messenger ............................................


    ISLAM: Muhammad ibn abdullah 1400 years ago (S) is the last Prophet and the last Messenger. No
    messenger or prophet will come after Muhammad (S).


    FARRAKHANISM: Elijah Muhammad this generation was a "Messenger of Allah." Are there any
    more messengers or prophets to come? Not clear?




    4. - Last Day/Life Hereafter ......................................


    ISLAM: The life on earth as we know it will come to an end; it will be
    followed by the life hereafter which includes physical resurrection of
    the entire humankind, judgement and the life of paradise or hell.


    FARRAKHANISM: "...BELIEVE in the resurrection of the dead - not in
    physical resurrection, but in mental resurrection." "No already
    physically dead person will be in the Hereafter; that is slavery belief,
    taught to slaves to keep them under control." "When you are dead, you
    are DEAD."




    5. - The Qur'an ...................................................


    ISLAM: It was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (S) between 610 and 632 C.E.
    It is the last revelation of Allah to mankind.


    FARRAKHANISM: Contradictory beliefs. On one side, "...BELIEVE in the
    Holy Qur'an and in the scriptures of all the Prophets of God," and on
    the other side, "We, the original nation of the earth ... are the
    writers of the Bible and Qur'an. We make such history once every 25,000
    years ... it is done by twenty-four of our scientists." "Both the
    present Bible and the Holy Qur'an must soon give way to the Holy
    Book..."


    6. - The Bible ....................................................


    ISLAM: It was revealed to prophets and messengers from Moses (alaihis
    salam) to Jesus (A) but was corrupted. Authenticity of statements in the
    Bible are judged by the Qur'an.


    FARRAKHANISM: (See their beliefs above regarding the Qur'an)


    7. - Shahadah .....................................................


    ISLAM: It means what it says, that is, Allah is Unseen, He is the
    Creator, the Sustainer. Mankind is accountable to Him Alone, and Prophet
    Muhammad (S) of Arabia is the final and ultimate ROLE MODEL; no one can
    substitute for him.


    FARRAKHANISM: A cover up to deceive gullible Muslims. "Allah (God)
    appeared in the person of Master W. Fard Muhammad," and Muhammad of
    Arabia (S) was one of the prophets, not a role model for our times. The
    real role model and lawgiver for our times is Elijah Muhammad.


    8. - Salah ........................................................


    ISLAM: Five times a day is required; SALAH (prayer) includes QIYAM
    (standing), RUKU' (bowing), SAJDA (prostration), JALSA (sitting on the
    floor) and recitations
    .

    FARRAKHANISM: No five times daily SALAH (prayer); prayer, when done has
    no RUKU' or SAJDA. Friday is a major congregational prayer day, not for
    SALAH, but to say DU'A and to listen to a Minister.


    9. - Zakah ........................................................


    ISLAM: Required on accumulated wealth after having in possession for one
    year above the NISAB (certain limits), as defined in SHARI'A (Islamic
    law).


    FARRAKHANISM: It is a tax as "poor due" on income, similar to income
    tax. Who benefits?




    10. - Sawm .........................................................


    ISLAM: Fasting is required in the month of Ramadan, ninth month of
    Islamic calendar.


    FARRAKHANISM: Fasting is required in December only. Fasting in the month
    of Ramadan is optional.


    11. - Hajj .........................................................


    ISLAM: Required once in a lifetime if conditions of finances, health,
    and safety of travel are met
    .

    FARRAKHANISM: No Hajj requirement. Farrakhan and his cronies take trips
    to Saudi Arabia, and by the way, to Makkah for the main purpose of image
    building and to raise funds from gullible rich Arabs.


    12. - Lawful (halal); Unlawful (haram) .............................


    ISLAM: Determined by Allah, the God Alone, announced in the Qur'an or by
    the Prophet Muhammad (S), recorded in the authentic
    Hadith sources.

    FARRAKHANISM: Determined by W.D. Fard and announced by Elijah Muhammad.
    The Qur'an and Prophet Muhammad (S) have no relevance nor authority with
    regard to lawful and unlawful.


    13. - Authentic Hadith .............................................


    ISLAM: An indispensable source of Islamic beliefs and practices, the
    only source after the Qur'an. Indispensable for the understanding of the
    Qur'an itself.


    FARRAKHANISM: Ignored, if not totally rejected by Farrakhanis. However,
    the leadership, including Farrakhan himself, may invoke Hadith if it
    suits their purpose to fool gullible Muslims.

    In addition to the above points, Farrakhanism is a cult of personality built around the charisma, image, persona, respect, eloquence and charm of its leader. Once he dies, the organisation he rules as a political and religious movement, may not possess the same magnetism and honour it currently commands.

    The Nation of Islam is not dependent on its leader for its very survival, but its present glamour, significance and replenished grandeur that has since evolved from 1977 when Louis Farrakhan assumed leadership may be dissolved.

    What compels me to assert this? The first major leader, Elijah Muhammad, who also professed prophethood, and ruled for over forty years from the 1930s-1970s, was highly distant to the mass media, did not speak to college and university audiences at all, was uninterested in composing his words, tone, message and overall presentation with clarity to the observer and non follower and developed no credible social communication to the masses other than to those who already were convinced of his divine mission.

    The next leader, Wallace Muhammad, lasted little over two years as the Nation of Islam's chief architect and his impact, other than the virtual turnaround of everything it had stood for, was minimal in terms of actual influence and a lasting legacy that it still upholds to this day.

    Louis Farrakhan, in comparison, is flamboyant, creative, ambitious, resilient and interested in addressing and establishing both reform, innovation, regality and style to his personal kingdom; a kind of black camelot.

    How has and how does he do all of this. He modifies opinions to suit the circumstances. He alters ideological belief systems to appeal to mass audiences. He appears with World leaders and internationally acclaimed speakers and poses in photographs to show his individual importance. He travels with regularity across the globe on world tours and usually with a large and often very expensive accolade of cavalcade of cars.
