Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, not to confused with the Ummah of Rasoullah Mohammed bin Abdullah (PBUH), has given his last major public speech about "One Nation Under God". It is the typical can't we all get along theme. I don't knock the theme, in fact I agree with it. Islam has been espousing it for over 1400 years. Many Sunni Muslims today came to Islam via the NOI so I appreciate it from that perspective, but ultimately Allah alone makes a person Muslim. Inshallah, with Farrakhan being resigned to the domain of historians, the remaining members of the NOI will accept Islam as so many before them. I also give Farrakhan credit for redressing many of the ill will that he seed many years ago, Inshallah we all will be able to do the same before we meet Allah(SWT).
