Main > Education & Institutions > Nation Of Islam

The Nation of Islam is a religious and social/political organization founded in Detroit, Michigan by Wallace Fard Muhammad in July 1930 with the self-proclaimed goal of resurrecting the Spiritual, mental, social, economic condition of the black men and women of America. The Nation of Islam believes to be both the long-awaited "Messiah" of Christianity and the Mahdi of some sections of Islam. One of Fard's first disciples was Elijah Muhammad (1897-1975).

NOI also promotes the belief that God will bring about a universal government of peace. From 1978 to the present, Louis Farrakhan has been the leader of a reconstituted Nation of Islam, the original organization having been renamed and dissolved by Warith Deen Muhammad. The Nation of Islam's National Center and headquarters is located in Chicago, Illinois, and is also home to its flagship Mosque No. 2, Mosque Maryam, in dedication to Mary, Mother of Jesus.
