"How, in common sense, dare anyone say that we can know absolutely nothing positive about these past transactions, even if we cannot know all, even if we can know but little? And why should we be content merely to tint our picture with the colors that suit the changing taste of our own time?" C.H. Mcllwain 1936
Oft times what is said when one seeks to recover history of Master Fard Muhammad is one of a few things: that he popped up from no where and disappeared to no where, that he was a member of this organization or that organization, that he was this man or that man. Many explanations are speculation. Most often conclude that there's no way possible to know anything about Him other than what was taught to us by The Honorable Elijah Muhammad.
The reality is, we don't have to concoct some story based on our inferences, nor do we have to settle on myth. Sprinkled throughout different publications and newspaper articles there's clues to get to some point or conclusion: He was arrested, they confiscated papers, He stayed in a Hotel, Believers who knew Him were interviewed, and perhaps the greatest evidence - The Honorable Elijah Muhammad raised a Nation from the Wisdom that He received from this "mysterious" Man in a very short time period.
Let us focus on what all can agree about Master Fard Muhammad - Here is a man that went door to door, raised enough who wanted to hear His word, a building was secured, structure was given, and this has been the way of the Gods since. Learn your History - from where you are - and I guarantee you that The Founders of your Mosques' reality will mirror that of the Saviour's. And that's what we should all be striving for - to reproduce Self to Serve Him and all of Us who are Allah. Peace.
