MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN
NATIONAL REPRESENTATIVE OF THE HONORABLE ELIJAH MUHAMMAD
AND THE NATION OF ISLAM
IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE BENEFICENT, THE MERCIFUL.
I BEAR WITNESS THAT THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH AND I BEAR
WITNESS THAT MUHAMMAD IS HIS MESSENGER
The Nation of Islam, America, the Islamic World and the World in general, have lost a giant in the field of mathematics and science and also we have lost a great one in the Cause of Allah and the spreading of the message of the Qur’an, the example of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), and his own personal experience with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
You may ask how could a man who only went to the fourth grade capture the heart, mind and spirit of a man with so many letters behind his name and so many major accomplishments even to the presidential medal for mathematics and science? It is because the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was taught by a Master.
I feel a deep sense of personal loss because I watched Brother Abdulalim as he came into the Nation of Islam and began to function as the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s minister in Washington, D.C. At the time it was Muhammad’s Temple Number Four, built from the ground up by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the members of the Nation of Islam, it is now called Masjid Muhammad.
I watched my brother in that humble building take the Muhammad University of Islam from preschool all the way to the college level. He was the Honorable Elijah Muhammad’s radio representative for many, many months and a wonderful friend and companion in the struggle for justice for our people.
We celebrate his life and we mourn his loss. To the members of his family, to all of those whom he nurtured in mathematics until they became PhDs. in mathematics, and are scattered throughout America and in other parts of the world, in various universities, teaching mathematics at the high level of their training under him.
May Allah grant peace to his family, to his students, to all of those who were touched by the majesty of this gift from Allah to the world.
May his son Yah Yah, walk in the noble footsteps of his father and be the best that he can be in whatever field of his choosing.
Your Brother and Servant,
