Hi…I was just reading around on facebook, and noticed some of my muslim acquaintances were celebrating ‘Saviours Day’, talking about how they’ve had the ‘honor’ to meet Farrakhan.
I went to go look up the holiday to see what it represents, and found this:
and my question came when I got to this part-
‘All of these different versions of Saviours’ Day are hybrids of the Official Nation of Islam observance of Saviour’s Day, which is always on February 26th and celebrates the birthday of Master Fard Muhammad** whom members of the Nation Of Islam believe is Allah in Person**.’
Is that right?? We don’t think that the POPE is God ‘in person’, so, do they really think this guy is God in the flesh?? aaaand…this guy is dead? soooo…does that mean that God is dead? How do they make sense out of that? Did he perform any miracles…er…what would lead them to believe that? Do they celebrate this holiday in all of Islam, or just ‘NOI’?
Is it fair to say that NOI is to Islam what protestants are to us?
