A History Of Attacks On Nation Of Islam Mosques

In The Name of ALLAH, The Beneficent, The Merciful

On July 22nd at around 11:15AM The Nation of Islam's UK headquarters and Mosque, where religious instruction based upon the teaching of The Hon. Elijah Muhammad is given, was raided in what is being called by the authorities a mistake. The provocation to this event according to the authorities was their "reliable sources" that a cannabis factory was being run on site. Could you imagine this happening to a Church or Synagogue? The religion of Islam(both Orthodox and The Nation of Islam) continue to be vilified and attacked through the media.

We are commanded as Muslims to protect all houses of God
"And if Allah did not repel some people by others, cloisters, and churches, and synagogues, and mosques in which Allah’s name is much remembered, would have been pulled down." 22:40

The authorities claim this was just a big mistake and have since "apologized". Only ALLAH Subhana Wa' Ta' Ala' knows the hearts of men, but this type of attack is not new and we have a history of such events to suggest that this is a continued pattern of aggression against Islam and black organizations that will not bow down, boot lick  or buck dance in the face of an oppressor. 

The Nation of Islam doesn't have a history of violence, but they have told the truth for 80 years... it is this truth that breaks the power of the ruling class of this world and makes them angry that their power is eroding away.

As I mentioned we have documented history of the enemy breaking in our places of worship under trumped up charges. This is done to intimidate the faithful and place fear in others that they will not step up to help the cause of The Hon. Elijah Muhammad and The Hon. Louis Farrakhan. 

"Persecution of the Muslims continued. Members and mosques continued to be attacked by whites in Monroe, La., Los Angeles, Calif., and Flint, Mich, among others." noi.org websites describes history of The Hon. Elijah Muhammad

During the early 60's The Nation of Islam's Mosque in Monroe, La was broken into and attacked under false charges they were preparing to "overthrow" the government. The Minister there Troy X. Cade now known as Min. Bey Muhammad was dragged from the Mosque, beaten and left for dead in the Louisiana swamps.

In 1962 another Nation of Islam temple, Muhammad's Mosque # 27, was attacked by police. In his phenomenal book Message To The Black Man-The Hon. Elijah Muhammad recounts this wicked attack against black people striving to reform themselves and better the community.

"You may know of the incident that took place on April 27, 1962, in Los Angeles, California, between the Los Angeles Policemen and my followers; one of my followers Ronald T. X. Stokes was killed out-right while his hands were raised and with nothing on him to do anyone harm. 

Every one of the Brothers was unarmed when nearly one hundred policemen swooped down upon them, well-armed, out of the darkness of the night to kill the Believers of Allah and His religion (Islam) and to stop the spread of Islam. 

On that fateful night, one of the policemen's bullets paralyzed one brother for life and others received serious wounds in the chest and private areas. They were all shot down for no reason other than that the devils wanted to kill the righteous as they have done in the past to the Prophets and followers, from Moses to Muhammad. 

And after shooting down six unarmed worshipers of Allah and with one dead, they felt happy to boast that they had killed one of my followers. The same devil policeman who killed that follower said he shot the others and was trying to kill them all. Again, this same devil was not wounded or even scratched by any of the Muslims, who were not armed and had nothing with which to retaliate against such a sudden attack"


10 years later in 1972 Muhammad's Mosque #7, under the leadership of Minister Louis Farrakhan, would be attacked by police officers, who came in with guns blazing, responding to an alleged disturbance. By now the community had enough and their was a large protest at the Mosque wherein Min. Farrakhan had to escort the police to safety through the angry crowd. 

In the 90's, 1994 to be specific, Muhammad's Mosque # 7 would again face police attacks. The Final Call Newspaper recounting the incident after a lawsuit was filed.

"The lawsuit stemmed from a 1994 incident where police officers, who Muslims assert had weapons drawn, tried to force their way into Muhammad Mosque No. 7 in Harlem, during a Sunday worship service. The officers purportedly were responding to a 911 call of a robbery in progress. Muslim men, the Fruit of Islam (F.O.I.), standing outside the mosque told officers there was no robbery. Officers could enter the mosque, but weapons were not allowed in the religious house, the Muslim men said. The officers, Muslims assert, cursed and tried to force their way inside. 

A stand-off ensued, with armored vehicles outside the mosque, rooftop snipers, SWAT teams, barricades and angry Harlemites—concerned about the massive police show of force—in the streets outside the mosque. After hours of negotiations, 300-500 people—women, children and men—were able to peacefully exit the building, around midnight on the cold winter night. Police later admitted the call was bogus..."
 

Also, we were attacked in Detroit, Michigan for exercising our right to independently educate our children.


" In Detroit, Michigan, where we were first attacked outright by the Police Department in April, 1934, we were also unarmed. There were no deaths on the part of the Believers, however. They fought back against the policemen who attacked them for no just cause whatsoever but that they wanted our Muslim children to go to their schools. We refused to let the children take their first course sin the public schools, although the high school children in their upper teens could do so. But let us shape our children first."(Message To The Blackman)

Even in their so-called courts of law we have suffered persecution and attacks as the following incident shows


"One year later, here in Chicago, Illinois, the Police Court on 11th and State Streets, there was a complaint made against one of my followers, concerning his children going to our school, the University of Islam. As the courtroom began to fill with spectators, two court deputies showed disrespect for the Muslim women. They started, pushing them around and the Muslim brothers resented this harsh handling of the women. The police officers then began beating the men and almost within seconds the entire courtroom was in confusion and fight." (Message To The Blackman)



This is just a listing of the major well known attacks against our places of worship and our selves. There are many more stories that could easily make a book if all the incidents were told. And now we add the incident in the UK to the list of continued attacks against The Nation of Islam and the Muslim followers of The Hon. Elijah Muhammad. He said, "The Devil is the Devil regardless to time or place."  

As the history shows whether it is the 60's 70's 80's 90's or now the enemy continues to hate the truth and black people who want to be free of their control and domination.

Thank you for reading these few words.
