This book is the 3rd in a series of books on the heroes of al-Islam in America and it is a humble attempt by the author to shine the light of Al-Islam, the Holy Qur’an and the language of Imam W. Deen Mohammed on the teachings and lessons of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad. This is not intended to be an extensive biography of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad it is only a summary or synopsis of his life. It is my sincere belief that the Holy Scriptures are interconnected and that the Holy Qur’an is the last chapter and the key to understanding all scriptures. This book is dedicated to all the people who have struggle for freedom throughout the ages, but it is especially dedicated to the five greatest African American men born in North America in my opinion (1.) Imam W. Deen Mohammed, (2.) Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., (3.) Mr. Elijah Muhammad, (4.) Mr. Abdul Malik Shabazz also known as Malcolm X, and finally Mr. Fredrick Douglas. I believe the vision seen by Dr. King in his I have a dream speech will only be fulfilled in the religion of Al Islam (Islam). In this booklet I use the name Abdul Wali Farad Muhammad Ali for Wallace Fard Muhammad in many instances. The closes Arabic equivalent for Wallace would probably be Wali. We also use the nickname given to Mr. Fard by Imam W. Deen Mohammed, W. D. Forty. We use the Arabic equivalent of Elijah Muhammad’s name Abdul Karim Ilyas Muhammad in many parts of this book to emphasize that he and his teacher Mr. Fard wanted us to reclaim our holy names.
