Prior to joining The Nation of Islam, I voiced what I wanted for my life and I had an exhausting list of questions that were hard to find answers for. So when I attended my first lecture on Sunday, January 12, 2014, it was shocking to see and hear some of what I wanted for

I was blessed to be born and raised in The Nation of Islam with a personal decision to officially register in 2014. I joined because I saw no other way of life worthy to accept. None proved to be a path I belonged to. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is the literal reason I was
I am a “Nation Baby” so I was raised in the Nation, but I did still choose Islam for myself. Because we are a curious people with free will, we all have that period of time where we wander from the religious beliefs that we were raised knowing. That lasted approximately six months for me.

In the name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful, I bear witness that there is no God, but Allah and that Muhammad is His Messenger. I greet my beautiful
The White House has hosted Iftar for approximately twenty years. With Donald Trump as POTUS, apparently he has zero intentions of celebrating Ramadan or at least supporting a national tradition. This is not a surprise to me and honestly why should this matter? Eid Mubarak (Blessed Festival)! What is Eid Al-Fitr? The festival of breaking
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
I did not know my purpose in life before coming into The Nation of Islam. In fact majority of the time I was just surviving mentally, spiritually, and physically. When I say I was just surviving, I mean I was existing, but not living. I was not confident, but today I’m empowered and I’m thriving
