An ignorant black nationalist group claiming to be followers of the "true" Islam. You know, completely ignoring the fact that Muhammad said:
"Allah does not look at your shapes or your colors but He looks at your hearts (intentions) and your deeds."
And that the Qur'an says:
"O mankind! We have created you from a single male and female and made you into nations and tribes so that you may know each other." (49:13)
In fact, Muhammad himself was a white Arab and the first man to perform the Muslim call to prayer (the Adhan) was Bilal, a black ex-slave. Islam is inherently non-racist, and anyone who says or thinks otherwise is an idiot.
Malcolm X was killed because he exposed the Nation of Islam for what it is: a false teaching.
Black nationalist movement that is as different from Islam as night is from day. These people are not true Muslims. For example, they don't believe that Muhammad (S) was the last prophet. In fact, their founder Louis Farrakhan is regarded by the NOI as a Prophet. Also, in Islam you are supposed to be tolerant. The NOI hate white people and want segregation.

Nation of Islam members should study actual Islam instead of the garbage that Louis Farrakhan introduced. They should follow Malcom X's example.
The NOI was founded by Louis Farrakhan.

He mysteriously disappeared in June 1934 and was consequently identified as an incarnation of Allah. Under Elijah Muhammad (1897-1975), Fard's Minister of Islam, and Muhammad's lieutenant Malcolm X (1925-1965), the movement gained international prominence.
The Nation of Islam's declared aim is the raising of the moral, social, and economic standing of non-whites. This has included the vilification of the dominant group, white Caucasians, even to the point of calling whites the personification of evil and maintaining that the white race is an aberration, the human race having originally been black. Therefore, according to this theory, blacks must pursue separate development. By turning racist ideas around to oppose whites, the movement has attracted many adherents and has had particularly good success in converting prisoners, criminals, and drug users. Black Muslims have financed the construction of mosques, schools, apartment complexes, stores, and farms.
Elijah Muhammad taught that American blacks, a group that includes all people of color, were descended from the ancient tribe of Shabazz that had originally settled the holy city of Mecca, and that blacks and whites can share no real community. Malcolm X was his closest collaborator until a quarrel between the two men in 1964. Malcolm X then went on a pilgrimage ...
