Minister Farrakhan turned 85 years of age on May 11. This is the last of five installments honoring his life, his journey throughout the Nation of Islam, his mission, his accomplishments and his legacy.
Through his divinely guided words and actions, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has saved thousands of lives.
He is a man that was born with a predetermined destiny.
His destiny led him to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam.
After the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s departure, he rebuilt his teacher’s work.
He has now been working on behalf of Black and oppressed people all over the world for 62 and a half years, the lifespan of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
He chose the door of Islam, a decision that has been felt across nations.
He has touched the elderly and the young, the male and the female, and yes, even the Black and the White.
He continues to teach, to inspire, and to warn, from his November 2017 Press Conference delivered at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C., to his “Let’s Change the World” Music Box Set released a few days before Saviours’ Day 2018.
His impact is so far-reaching that today, Farrakhan is not just one person.
At the 18th Anniversary of the Million Man March in Tuskegee, AL, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s daughter, Donna Farrakhan, described her father’s legacy perfectly.
“Farrakhan may not be physically present, but I beg to differ! I am looking at Farrakhans in front me. I am looking at Farrakhan Muhammad in front of me. I am looking at a new nation that Master Fard Muhammad has put into existence! You are that new beginning!” she said.
“You have all that it takes, you shining star! He has given you his light! I’m asking you today to turn it on!”
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has so thoroughly deposited his essence that he is an example to us that we have the potential to be Farrakhan, if we heed the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s words:
“This is one of the strongest national preachers I have in the bounds of North America. Everywhere you hear him, listen to him; everywhere you see him, look at him; everywhere he advises you to go, go; everywhere he advises you to stay from, stay from; so we are thankful to Allah for his great helper of mine, Minister Farrakhan.”
