THE TRIBE OF SHABAZZ...
THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD
<"THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD"(MUHAMMAD'S MOSQUE)1971
This story that I am about to manifest to you is the history of the GOD Tribe of Shabazz. Who are as we
know today the so-called Negroes of America and the Holy Bible refers to them as the children of Israel.
Keep in Mind the Words Israel, Hebrew and Shabazz are all the same. The only difference is that they
belong to different languages. And in order for King James to conceal the truth of true identity of the most
talked about people of his book we wisely used the terms Israel and Hebrew. In the Jewish language, Israel
means Chosen Tribe. In the Hebrew language it means Gifted Tribe or God's elect. In the book of Genesis
15:13 to 15, it is explained to Abram what will happen to his seed (Tribe). Also in the book of Malachi 3:8 and 9, God asked a
very important question. So by reading the Bible very carefully you will notice that it speaks of one particular people from the
beginning to the end.
Now, the story. For twenty years John Harding Hawkins an englishman and trader by occupation, came among the Blackman
to trade. In time he learned the Blackman's language and His Culture, in fact I should say his way of life. As he learned more
about him he noticed that some were satisfied and others were not. As he came to know the dissatisfied, he learned that they
were dissatisfied with the administration which they were under. Such as the state of affairs, employment, business, foreign
relations, economics, internal and external and most of all the religion, Islam. These people were Muslims.
John Hawkins saw that about 70% were satisfied and 30% dissatisfied. The region where the people were living at this time
was the Eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea. The country we know today as Syria. So John H. Hawkins told those that were
dissatisfied that he could take them to a new world where they could start life new again. Where they could make more gold for
their labor than they were making in their own land. He also told them they could get better positions in the government and
choice land of their choosing. In other words they were going to live like Kings and Queens in this new world. As they thought
of this paradise, they never realized that they were living in paradise, at that moment. For that is the choicest land on the planet
earth today; these are the holy lands as the Bible points out to us: Egypt, Jordan, and Syria. And in the year of 1555 John H.
Hawkins and a handful of Blackmen, women and children set sail for the new world. But the Blackman didn't know that he was
about to go into slavery. As the good ship "Jesus" set said, the crew of ship appeared with rifles and guns along with leg irons
and chains. And when it dawned on him what was about to happen the whole ship was in a uproar and in the confusion some
jumped over-board rather than go into slavery. Others were subdued and put into chains. After which they were put into the
hole of the ship because these trips took about 3 to 5 months to complete and provisions were not plentiful. And when they
landed some months later in Jamestown, Virginia the ones that were in charge had already built a large camp for the slaves to
live in because this was a very carefully planned project that was planned to the last detail.
For the whiteman's intention was to de-possess the Blackman of his whole way of life, and in turn
make a new Blackman which would serve him faithfully for all of his days. John H. Hawkins was so
successful in his first trip of kidnapping these Blackman from the east, and selling them into slavery in
the west, that he went back to England and bought 2 more ships because the Blackman brought so
good a price on the slave block, that he knew if he could be successful in a few more trips to teh new world with the Black
salves he could retire and live a comfortable life in his mother country of England. John H. Hawkins came back to the east and
told them your brothers and sisters are asking for you to come to the new world to join them; because they are living a better
life in the new world and knowing they were kidnapped and forced into slavery against their will, took John H. Hawkins as a
friend and not a deceiver. In no time he had enough to fill his two ships and they sailed for the new world. When John H.
Hawkins and his 2 ships landed in Jamestown, Virginia, from the east, these Blacks were also put into the same camp. He
noticed the work that had begun on the first Blacks their studies had shown many valuable points about the Black people such
as how they prayed, actions and many other things. Keep in mind the Blackman knew his name, country, flag, language, religion
and most of all his God who is Allah. The whiteman realized he must take this in order to have a life long slave.
As we know the whitman's history teaches that the first slaves were brought to this country in 1619 and 1621. As stated in the
beginning the Blackman was taken into captivity in 1555. He was put into camps that was like small cities, these cities had
stores for all supplies. The ones in charge had instructions to watch this Blackman day and night and write everything down on
paper that he did, nothing else, just watch him. This was the first stage set-up to rob the Blackman of his identity, of who
was. This camp was receiving the point. This is where they could condition the Blackman and this is the period missing out of
his history - 1555 to 1620 this is about 65 years.
Here, every time the Blackman and woman would have a child, they would take the child to a different part of the camp. This
child would grow up under a white woman. After the child reached the age of 6 or 7, he or she would be shipped to a
plantation a little to the west, in the deeper south. Sometimes the states of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia to name
a few. The Blacks he had now were all out of the tribe and whenever you saw them you would know because they looked like
brothers and sisters. Their shade was alike, their height was the same as well as their characteristics. This must be concealed
from them said the whiteman. As a result, many Blacks from Africa were brought during 1600 to mix with the God Tribe. They
being mixed now. The new arrival of the Africans who spoke an African dialect, which made it impossible to understand one
another when they came in contact. What the whiteman had learned from the first experiment in the camps was now introduced
to every plantation for a guide to follow. Some plantations could hold up to five thousand slaves. The main object of the
plantation was to take the baby from its mother and in turn let a white woman raise it or a very trusted Black nanny. But the
1800's the whiteman had produced a new race of people who did not know their names, language, history, culture and religion
nor GOD. The third step was to inject fear into them. One way which this was brought about was by taking a Black woman
pregnant with child and tie her hands and feet to stakes, the plantation own would notify all plantation owner in the radius of
100 miles to bring their slaves to his plantation. He would take a knife and cut the child from the Black woman's womb, while
the others look on in terror at what the whiteman had done. If any Blackman came to her aid the other whites watching would
shoot him down like a dog. After getting her baby the white man would take it and drop it to the ground and squash the baby's
head flat. And to this day the so-called Negroes fear the whiteman and do not know the true reason why. Many other acts
were committed against the so-called Negroes as lynchings, rapes and burning to name a few. The United States of America
came in existence about 1776 after the AMerican Revolution; in less than 150 years this country became the greatest and
richest in the world. How did she become so rich, who made her so wealthy. The answer lies in the slaves. Cotton is an
agricultural product produced by the Blackman working in the fields all day. This brought on civil war. Next you have steel
which put America on top of the world. The cotton see came from Egypt (with slaves), the ingredients of steel came from
Japan. With the Blackman working in steel mills doing the hardest work for less pay, indeed America is rich.
The Tribe of "SHABAZZ" is the original Tribe, Original means first, before there were no others and all tribes and mankind in
existence are the off-springs but were brought about through grafting. The Tribe of Shabazz is nature herself, and she is the wife
of the most high ALLAH himself, all changes that come about in the earth are brought through the wombs of the GOD Tribe.
She is a nation of Kings and Queens, Gods and Goddesses. This tribe has no mother or father. And her mother and father are
still within her to-day none can find her beginning we can trace the caucasians back to their very birth date, we can trace to
their beginning, but the so-called Negroes is an exception, we can only trace them to their ending; and when we reach his end,
we find that his end is also his beginning: He has no birth record, he is not an off-spring from any tribe, nation or people but all
tribes, nations and people are offsprings from him. The so-called American Negroes are the Holy Tribe SHABAZZ and
ALLAH (GOD) Himself came here to the wilderness of North America to raise His people from a mental death. The
Honorable Elijah Muhammad who ALLAH commissioned His Messenger is now teaching his people for the rist time, the true
knowledge of GOD. The Tribe of SHABAZZ which has been in bondage for the past 400 years is now coming into the
knowledge that will place them in their rightful realm with the nations of the earth being nature will bring about a 100% change.
This world's days were up in 1914, the devils were granted a 70 year grace period on its time which can collapse any day now.
This world system created by Dr. Yakub 6,000 years ago.

CHAPTER 127THE BATTLE IN THE SKY
The final war between Allah (God) and the devils is dangerously close.The very least amount of friction can bring it into action within minutes.There is no such thing as getting ready for this most terrible and dreadful
war; they are ready. Preparation for the battle between man and man or
nations has been made and carried out on land and water for the past 6,000
years. Man has now become very wise and has learned many of the secrets
of nature which make the old battles with swords and bows and arrows
look like child's play.
Since 1914 which was the end of the time given to the devils (white race)
to rule the original people (Black Nation), man has been preparing for a
final showdown in the skies. He has made a remarkable advancement in
everything pertaining to a deadly destructive war in the sky, but Allah, the
Best of Planners, having a perfect knowledge of His enemies, prepared for
their destruction long ago even before they were created. Thanks to Allah,
to whom eternal praise is due, who came in the flesh and the blood: He has
been for more than seventy years making Himself ready for the final war.
Allah, whom we praise, comes in the person of Master W.F. Muhammad,
the Great Mahdi expected by the Muslims, and the anti-Christs (the
devils) under the names: Son of Man, Jesus Christ, Messiah, God, Lord,
Jehovah the Last (Jehovah) and the Christ. These meanings are good and
befitting as titles, but the meaning of His name Mahdi, as mentioned in
the Holy Qur-an Sharrieff 22:54, is better. All of these names refer to Him.
His name, Fard Muhammad, is beautiful in its meaning. He must bring an
end to war, and the only way to end war between man and man is to
destroy the war-maker (the troublemaker).
According to the history of the white race (devils) they are guilty of
making trouble causing war among the people and themselves ever since
they have been on our planet Earth. So the God of the righteous has found
them disagreeable to live with in peace, and has decided to remove them
from the face of the Earth. God does not have to tell us that they are
disagreeable to live with in peace; we already know it, for we are the
victims of these troublemakers. Allah will fight this war for the sake of His
people (the black people), and especially for the American so-called
Negroes. As I have said time and again, we the so-called American
Negroes, will be the lucky ones. We are Allah's choice to give life and we
will be put on top of civilization.

Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam is a figure as current as
today's headlines, but the movement of which he is a nominal spokesman has a
continuous history of over sixty years in this country. The Nation of Islam
(NOI), as it is officially known, came to the attention of the general public
in the 1960s as the "Black Muslims." (1) It is well-known for its doctrine
that the White Man is a devil. but what is probably less well known is another
part of its teaching - that the Black man is god.
Outsiders have done little in-depth research to trace the NOI's doctrinal
predecessors. The NOI itself has denied its connections with previous
movements, specifically the Moorish Science Temple of Noble Drew Ali. Ali,
who was born as Timothy Drew in North Carolina in 1886, taught, among other
things, that Blacks are descended from the ancient Canaanites. Legend has it
that he was the reincarnation of Muhammad, the Prophet of orthodox Islam.
Eventually relocating to Chicago, Ali built an organization that numbered
perhaps 30,000 adherents at its peak. (2)
On March 15, 1929, Ali was arrested after factional violence resulted in the
death of a rival, Sheik Claude Greene. Arrested and held in the county jail,
Ali was eventually released on bail, but died July 20, 1929, under mysterious
Master Fard Muhammad
The story of the NOI itself starts with a man variously known as Wali Farrad,
W.D. Fard, Wallace Fard Muhammad, and Farrad Muhammad, but who is best known
as Msater Fard Muhammad. (4) According to his sucessor, Elijah Muhammad,
He came alone. He began teaching us the knowledge of ourselves, of
God and the devil, of the measurements of the earth, of other planets,
and the civilizations of some of the planets other than the earth.
He measured and weighed the earth and the water; [he gave] the
history of the moon; the history of the two nations that dominated the
earth. He gave the exact birth of the white race; the name of their
God who made them and how; and the end of their time, the judgement,
how it will begin and end. (5)
According to the same source, Fard had said, "My name is Mahdi; I am God."
And according to another source, Fard, when asked who he was by the Detroit
police, responded: "I am the Supreme Ruler of the Universe." (6)
Master Fard Muhammad is officially noted by the NOI as having arrived in
Detroit on July 4, 1930, and departed on June 30, 1934. (There is an older
tradition of an earlier arrival twenty years previous as well as attendance
at the University of Southern California.) (7) In the interim, Fard
established temples in several cities and created a hierarchical organization
composed of a men's military training unit called the Fruit of Islam (FOI), a
ministers' corps, and a women's auxiliary called the Muslim Girls Training and
General Civilization Class (MGT-GCC). (8) This infrastructure was built upon
Fard's ideological foundation known as the "Secret Ritual," which, arranged in
a question-and-answer format, became better known as the "Lost-Found Muslim
Lessons" or simply as "the lessons."
Within these lessons were the basic elements of an ancient mystery school. It
involved secrecy from outsiders; an esoteric ritual containing keys for
recognition between fellow members; a cohesive world view; and a tradition that
could be explained only to initiates. Central to these teachings were the
knowledge of self and the Black man's godhood. (9) According to these
teachings, the Black man was by nature divine, and in fact was the original
man, ancestor of the human race (antedating Louis and Mary Leakey's discoveries
of early human remains in Africa by nearly thirty years.)
White people, on the other hand, were produced out of Black people by a
scientist named Yacub approximately six thousand years ago. (10) Discovering
a recessive gene in the Black man, Yacub used a system of eugenics on a
group of sixty thousand people on an island and, after six hundred years, was
able to create a biological mutation: the White man. Of course Yacub did not
live to see his creation, but he left behind an infrastructure to propogate
his system, as well as the ideological basis for White supremacy. Bleached
of the essence of humanity, Whites were "without soul." Nonetheless the race
was destined to rule for an allotted period extending to 1914 A.D, though, as
Fard's messenger Elijah Muhammad put it, "a few years of grace have been given
to complete the resurrection of the Black man, and especially the so-called
Negroes whom Allah has chosen for this change (of a new nation and world).
They (so-called Negroes) have been made so completely mentally dead ... that
extra time is allowed." (11) It was also taught that the supreme god amongst
this mighty nation of Black gods commanded the name of Allah. (12) This title
was claimed by Master Fard Muhammad himself.
Fard's deification of man can hardly be considered an aberration in light of
historical precedents. The ancient pharaohs of Egypt, the Aztec emperors, and
the Peruvian Incas who traced their ancestry to the Sun God are well-known
examples. More recently, there are claims of divinity for emperors Hirohito
and Haile Selassie, the Dalai Lama, and Kushok Bakula. (13) And even these
should hardly turn any heads in the light of the tradition of Jesus of Nazareth
as God incarnate. The Hindu avatar tradition would also be right at home in
The teaching of the divinity of the Black man specifically (a doctrine known as
"incarnation") is said to go back to ancient Egyptian mystery schools; in fact
Khem (and its variants Cham, Ham), an ancient name of Egypt, means "land of the
Blacks." Nor did the doctrine of incarnation start with Master Fard Muhammad
and the NOI; according to Fard's messenger and succesor, Elijah Muhammad, the
knowledge of man as god had been long known but "was kept a secret from the
"The Lost-Found People of Islam"
Prior to Fard's appearance in 1930, Noble Drew Ali's Moorish Science Temples
of America were in decline. After the loss of its founder in 1929, the movement
had fallen into three separate schisms. Sheik John Givens El claimed that
Noble Drew Ali had become reincarnated into him, Givens El, on August 7, 1929.
in Chicago. This was publicly announced in Chicago's Pythian Hall on August
19 of that year. (15)
But, according to scholar Ravanna Bey, W.D. Fard, known at the time as Abdul
Wali Farrad Muhammad, and two other Moorish Scientists, Mealy El and Charles
Kirkman Bey, contested the authority of Givens El. The latter two went on to
establish their own independent Moorish Science Temples, while Fard converted
a Detroit Moorish Science Temple and renamed it the Temple of the Lost-Found
People of Islam (a story that has been hotly contested by NOI leadership). (16)
A wartime memo claimed W.D. Fard was one Sheik Davis El from Kansas. (17)
According to yet another source, Fard had declared himself the reincarnation
of Noble Drew Ali. (18) With so many stories in circulation, confusion has
been the norm.
On November 21, 1932, Robert Karriem, a member of Fard's Detroit temple, was
arrested for the murder of J.J. Smith, another temple member. The police
arrested thirty seven members in what they characterized as a case of "human
sacrifice" with religious overtones. They labeled the incident as the "Voodoo
Murder," and the media followed suit. (19) The organization was referred to as
the "Voodoo Cult," and Fard as "Chief of the Voodoos" by the detractors.
Karriem, also known as Robert Harris, was found insane and ordered to be
confined to the State Insane Asylum at Ionia, Michigan, on December 6, 1932.
Meanwhile Detroit was being turned upside down in pursuit of Fard, who was
proving to be elusive. After seven months, the police finally arrested him at
Detroit's Hotel Fraymore on May 25, 1933. Held overnight for "investigation,"
he was photographed and fingerprinted. On the following day he was ordered out
of the city. Traveling to Chicago, he was again arrested. According to Elijah
Muhammad, Fard "came to Chicago in the same year  and was arrested almost
immediately on his arrival and placed behind prison bars." (20) According to
FBI sources, Fard was thought to have been arrested in Chicago on September 26,
1933, without disposition, photo, or fingerprints taken, for "disorderly
conduct," a police euphemism for the harassment of undesirables. This is the
last official record of Fard. Unsubstantiated rumors lay his disappearance at
the door of the Chicago police department; but according to NOI tradition, Fard
continued to visit Detroit surreptitiously into 1934.
Fard The Man
Who was Fard? Official NOI teachings state that he was born in Mecca, Arabia,
February 26, 1877. The offspring of a Black father and a White mother, he was
"able to go among both black and white without being discovered or recognized."
(21) His mission was to teach freedom, justice, and equality to the members of
the "lost tribe of Shabazz in the wilderness of North America." He had
recieved the finest education in preparation for his mission; "he could speak
16 languages and write 10 of them. He could recite the histories of the world
as far back as 150,000 years and knew the beginning and end of all things."(22)
However, different sources contribute their conflicting versions of the man.
Fard was also described as a "Palestinian Arab who had participated in various
racial agitations in India, South Africa, and London before moving on to
Detroit." He was also thought to be the son of an African Jamaican mother and
a Syrian Muslim father. (23) Another report claimed that he was born of a
Maori mother and a British sailor father in New Zealand. (24) Still another
states that he was a Turkish-born agent for Hitler. (25) A recent account
somewhat incoherently describes Fard as a "Jewish Nazi Communist," and says he
was an agent of the CIA in 1930 (seventeen years before that agency came into
existence). (26) One more recent writer has constructed the tenuous
hypothesis that Fard came to Sufi mysticism by way of Theosophy. (27) There is
even an account (complete with transcript) of a supposed encounter between
Fard and Albert Einstien at a Detroit radio station in 1932.
While the oral histories of Moorish Science adherents claim Fard as one of
their own gone astrary, NOI initiates say that Fard, arriving in the
"wilderness of North America" as early as 1910, taught Noble Drew Ali, Father
Divine, Daddy Grace and Sufi Abdul-Hamid (28) the concept of Black godhood,
though all of these later went on their own way. There is also a tradition
that in Egypt Fard taught Duse Muhammad Ali, the mentor of Marcus Garvey
(founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association), as well as Garvey
himself, whom he met in London.
Fard was described as having an "oriental cast of countenance," (29) a
description which a 1933 police photo seems to bear out. Police sources
describe him as five feet six inches in height and weighing 133 pounds. His
eye color is given as "maroon," his hair as black, and his complexion is
described as "dark" or "swarthy." One entry described him as looking like a
"dark complected Mexican." Only two photographs remain from Fard's three and
a half years in Detroit: the police photo and a "glamourized" (i.e. touched-up)
portrait of a sort popular in the late 1920s, taken at a forty-five-degree
angle by a professional photographer. The latter became the official portrait
of Fard, and was later reproduced in a painted portrait at the Muhammad family
mansion in Chicago.
The Departure of Fard
Other accounts circulated after Fard's disappearance. According to Elijah
Muhammad, Fard was "ordered out of the country" and caught a flight to Mecca.
(30) It was also reported that he sailed to Austrailia and New Zealand, and
that he was last seen "aboard a ship bound for Europe." (31) A suspect source
claimed that Fard was interviewed in Germany but denied ever being in the
United States. (32) A recent report in an orthodox Muslim newspaper claimed
that Fard is alive and living in California and is now himself an orthodox
In addition, there were rumors to the effect that Fard "met with foul play at
the hands of either the Detroit police or some of his dissident followers," or
that he was the victim of "human sacrifice" himself, thereby accounting for
both his disappearance and his title of "Saviour." (34) Another
unsubstantiated story said that, afflicted with an incurable illness, he died
and was buried under another name, and "no man knows of his grave to this day."
Rumors aside, there has been no reliable report of his death. The FBI, which
initiated an investigation of Fard in 1942 that was to last more than thirty
years, could not substantiate or verify his name at birth, birth date, place
of birth, port of entry, exit, or present whereabouts, despite exhaustive
inquiries. There are even indications that bodies were exhumed in the search
The Messenger of Allah
It was Elijah Muhammad who was almost single-handedly responsible for the
deification of Fard as "Allah." (35) Elijah Muhammad was born Paul Robert
Poole in 1897 on a tenant farm in Sandersville, Georgia, the seventh of
twelve children; he was given the name Elijah by his grandfather. Later on,
Fard would give him the name Muhammad. (36) Elijah married the former Clara
Evans and migrated to Detroit in 1923. Working at a variety of jobs until the
Depression hit in 1929, he went on relief until 1931. It was in that year that
he first met Fard, but says that "it was not until 1933 that he [Fard] began
revealing his true self to us." (37)
After Fard's disappearance, the struggle for succesion commenced. Elijah's own
brother fell in the bloody internecine warfare that developed. (38) Rivals in
the Detroit temple made necessary Elijah's hegira to Chicago, which was
destined to become the headquarters and power base; but from 1935 to 1942, he
was on the run. In 1942 he was arrested in Washington, D.C., by the FBI on
charges of sedition. At roughly the same time, more than eighty members of the
Chicago temple were taken in under the same charge by FBI agents working with
local police. One of the arrested temple members said the officers "tore the
place apart trying to find weapons hidden, since they believed we were
connected with the Japanese." (39)
The sedition charge was based on the temple's anti-draft stance and was applied
for blatantly political reasons. The arrest of Elijah and his followers, and
their subsequent incarceration until the end of the war, greatly enhanced their
status as martyrs for the cause.
Like other leaders jailed for their activities, Elijah brought forth innovations
for his movement when he was released. Prior to his imprisonment, the movement
was based entirely on its theological teachings and traditions. In 1946 it
numbered in the hundreds, just possibly the thousands. But that was to change.
Upon his release, Elijah stated, "We have to show the people something - we
cannot progress by talk." And so, as his son Wallace later explained, Elijah
"changed from preaching his mysterious doctrine to doing something practical.
He said, 'We have to have businesses.' So he began to promote the opening of
businesses. He said, 'You have to produce jobs for yourself'
