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.

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.

Islam did not originate in India. Christianity did not. Judaism did not. Baha'i did not. Zoroastrianism did not.

It depends on the particular Nation of Islam preacher. Some were more bellicose than others (advocating for actual attacks on whites or restricting violence to self-defense), but the Nation of Islam was certainly not a mirror of Reverend King's peaceful non-violence.It is important to note that the Nation of Islam is distinct from Sunni Islam in several key respects and the rules of the Nation of Islam are inconsistent with those of Sunni Islam.

In 1964. He did this because when he went to Mecca, he realized that the Nation of Islam was racist. They believed the whites were devils. Shortly later, in 1965, he was assassinated by members of the Nation of Islam.

Because the Nation of Islam was racist. The Nation of Islam thought that white people were the devil. When Malcolm X went to Mecca (pilgrimage), he realized that white, black, everyone could be Muslims. After Mecca, Malcolm realized that the Nation of Islam was wrong: they were not true Muslims, so he became a Sunni Muslim.

Nation of Islam. Malcolm X became a member of the Nation of Islam ( based on Black pride and the teachings of Islam). However, after his personal experiences and personal conflict; he left the group. Although Malcolm X left the Nation of Islam, he remained a Muslim and lived under the tenants of Islam until his death.

'Nation of Islam' sees their founder Elijah as a prophet of God and is racist because they think black people are worth more than white people. Therefore I recommend you to stay away from the Nation.

User Avatar

As the 'Nation of Islam' claim that Elijah is a Prophet after the Prophet Mohammed [peace upon him and his Holy progeny], then this would result in the followers of the 'Nation of Islam' to not be Muslims as it is compulsory on a Muslim to believe that the Prophet Muhammed is the Last Prophet i.e. 'The Seal of Prophethood' Hoped that helped:)
