Elijah Muhammad Was A Powerful And Controversial Figure Who Attacked The Beliefs Of The Christian Community ---- Calling Christianity "The Religion Of Slavery And An Instrument Of Oppression Controlled By 'White Devils." Muhammad Began His Climb Up The Ranks Of The Nation Of Islam After He Founded Temple No. 2 In Chicago, In 1932. He Became Supreme Minister Following The Mysterious Disappearance Of Nation Of Islam Founder, W.D. Fard.
By 1962, Elijah Muhammad Was Well-Established As The Leader Of The Black Muslims. Known As The "Messenger Of Allah," He Called For A Separate African American Nation Within The United States. Under Elijah Muhammad's Leadership The Nation Of Islam Attracted Several Hundred Thousand Black Followers. One Hundred And Fifty Temples Were Opened In The United States And The Caribbean, And At Least 50 Islamic Universities Were Established.
The "Lost-Found Nation Of Islam Here In The Wilderness Of North America," Required Strict Discipline In Personal Conduct And Encouraged Blacks In The Inner-City To Open Businesses. The Nation Also Instructed Blacks To Drop Their Last Names (Of Bondage) And Replace Them With Islamic Names. Or, They Could Simply Adopt X, As Did Malcolm X, Who Was Born, Malcolm Little, And Await The Day "God Himself Returned And Gave Us A Holy Name From His Own Mouth."
Upon His Death, Elijah Muhammad's Son, Wallace D. Muhammad, Assumed Leadership Of The Nation Of Islam. He Ushered In Notable Changes, Such As Opening Membership To Whites, Changing The Organization's Name To The World Community Of Islam And Abandoning The Notion Of A Separate Black State Within The United States.
