Best Answer

The Nation of Islam is not mainstream Islam nor are the beliefs the same, The Nation of Islam was originated in the USA in the early 20th Century. Although the name suggests that it is connected to Islam, it has no connection at all to Islam and shouldn't be looked at as a sect of Islam.

The Nation of Islam is a religious group founded in Detroit, Michigan, United States by Wallace Fard Muhammad in July 1930 with the self-proclaimed goal of resurrecting the spiritual, mental, social, and economic condition of the black men and women of America.

It was a racist movement and thus most of its followers left NOI and entered into mainstream Islam. For example Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali.

For more information read the autobiography of Malcolm X.

Is the Nation of Islam violent?

The Nation of Islam is a African-American Islamic Organization. In the past, the Nation of Islam has advocated for violence against Whites, Jews, and Asians claiming that all of these people have repressed the "Black Interest" and should be "properly punished" for their conduct. Understandably, mainstream Sunni and Shiite Islam both condemned the Nation of Islam for these racial beliefs saying that Islam does not recognize any difference between people on the basis of race and that discrimination on such a basis is un-Islamic. With the death of the early Nation of Islam leaders, the Nation of Islam began an effort to reconcile its beliefs with Sunni Islam and is increasingly moving along that path, but there are still elements of the Nation of Islam that advocate for violence against non-Blacks. _______________________________________________________________ Nation of Islam (NOI) is not belonging to main stream Islam. Followers of NOI are expelled from the Islam religion. Refer to question below.


Did the Nation of Islam believe in violence or non-violence?

It depends on the particular Nation of Islam preacher.
