to the black man's mass suffering under the rule of the Caucasian
race, there is always someone who would like to justify their
treatment of the black man and many times it comes from the mouth
of the sufferer.
The above mentioned Mr. DeRougement's letter was given plenty
space in the editorial section of this paper recently to tell
his dislike for Mr. Malcolm X's "Truth of Our Slavemasters".
Mr. Malcolm X is one of my ministers and followers.
Mr. DeRougement desires to defend the white slavemakers of our
people by mentioning their medical treatment to some blacks of
Africa which was done to enslave them, and not for any love of
He asks Minister Malcolm to prove that Islam is the original religion
of the native African. I say, yes, and all the people who are
members of the black nation, according to the meaning of Islam
and what the Holy Quran Sharrieff teaches us of Islam. Islam
means peace and entire submission to the will of Allah (God),
who is the author of Islam.
The name Islam was not invented as in the case of other religions.
It is the religion of (peace) all the prophets according to the
Holy Quran, Noah, Abraham, Moses and Jesus and Muhammad the last.
Entire submission to the will of Allah (God), brings us into the
peace of Allah and that is the religion of Islam.
Yea, whoever submits himself entire to Allah and he is the doer
of good to others, he has his reward from his Lord and there is
no fear for him, nor shall be grieve" (2:112). "And
then set your face upright for religion in the right state, the
nature made by Allah in which he has made men".
Do we not all love peace for self if not for I others? Further
in another place; "Surely the true religion with Allah is
Islam (3:18). Peace with God implies complete submission that
is Islam, and it is as old as God himself. "They shall not
hear therein vain or sinful discourse, except the word, peace,
Could we imagine Allah (God) giving mankind any other religion
but one of peace? "He is, who sent his Apostles with the
guidance and the true religion that he may make it overcome the
religions, all of them, though the Polytheists may be averse"
We can't believe that Allah (God) ever had but one religion for
mankind. According to the Holy Our-an, Islam was the religion
of all the prophets of God so could we imagine a prophet of God
bringing us a religion other than peace? Islam is the religion
of peace that God offers us in the Bible (Num. 6:26). (Pa. 29:11-85:8),
Us. 26:3-32:17). There are many other places in the Bible that
prove that Islam, the religion of peace, is mentioned as being
the religion of Allah (God).
It is the last of the three great religions, Buddhism and Christianity.
Christianity is the youngest of the three. The father of the black
African tribe went there 50,000 years ago from the tribe of Shabazz
and his religion and the whole tribe of Shabazz was none other
The religion of the father of the white race (Yakub) before his
fall was none other than Islam. According to the word of Allah
(God) : "This day I have perfected for your religion and
completed my favor on you and chose for you Islam as a religion"
