While I have not been a (practicing) Muslim all my life, and am a convert / revert as we sometimes say, I have studied Islam quite extensively over the years and seeing as though my own theological position is that of the Muslim now, I might offer my own reply. If you look at their information and their doctrines, these groups are in fact nothing more than racist or “racialist” groups (pro-black , specifically black American in this case ) . They are merely using the cloak of Islam, using terms from Islam, etc, to attempt to validate their strange beliefs. They believe for instance that the black man is the “original man”, and that Caucasians are “devils” that were “grafted” out of the flesh of the aformentioned original man on an island called Patmos by a mad black scientist named Yakub, something like 6000 or some odd years ago. They believe that a black American by the name of Clarence Poole ( known to posterity by the “Muslim name” he took, “Elijah Muhammad”) was actually a true prophet and received revelations from God (swt). A man called “W. Farad Muhammad” ( probably only part-black , at most, from the look of him) proceeded “Elijah Muhammad” and is believed by NOI , etc, to have passed the mantle of prophethood on to “Elijah”. In my opinion, while I respect the other Muslim poster’s likening of the NOI quasi-religion with Scientology, I personally would be more inclined to liken it to something known as “Christian Identity”. To me, there are far more parallels between the two, only one is a black racialist group using a legitimate religion’s mantle as a disguise, while the other is a Caucasian (specifically, “AngloSaxon”) racialist group doing the same exact thing.
