My first time hearing The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan was watching This Man Jesus. I was amazed by how bold he spoke and how there were facts after facts. However, my experience of hearing him in-person was incomparable to a recording on YouTube. In February 2014, I was blessed to attend my first Saviours’ Day and listen to God’s number one helper in our midst. The entire weekend I was filled with so much serenity. Tears of joy continued to fall from my eyes the more and more I learned of this Beautiful man that God has in our midst.
I cried because I couldn’t believe I’d been so far away from the knowledge of self all of my life. I’d been looking for a leader that I could follow and trust to guide me to Allah (God). The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is the man who has been the best example for me.
He has helped me understand Jesus not by what he teaches alone, but through his actions. He continues to teach me the importance of transparency, growth, how to embrace my Black self, how to love my Brothers and Sisters, how to have a voice for the oppressed, fight for Freedom, Justice, and Equality. He outworks everyone with a smile, which reminds me that I have zero excuses for being productive. I have learned my true value as God’s girl because of him through his ongoing work of uplifting women. He uplifts women by informing us of our true connection to Allah (God). He knows his mission that’s been given to him. However, he’s a humble man. He’s so humble that he doesn’t ask for us to address him as “The Honorable”. He reminds us that he’s our Brother. He does not take the credit. He always gives the credit to Allah. He’s our example, our reminder.
I am thankful for God’s Mercy, who is The Minister. I am truly loving this divine man and am so thankful that we still have him in our midst. I am so thankful to be a member in The Nation of Islam.
Happy Anniversary to this Divine, selfless being! I am so thankful to Allah for The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
