About the Book

— Similar to the two previous volumes, this compilation helps to document and chronicle the transformation of the reformist, African–American, self–help organization originally known as the Nation of Islam. The articles herein provide a window or lens into the community that was propelled into a new growth by the language and logic of Imam W. Deen Mohammed. As noted in Volume II, the "community" of Imam Mohammed is not defined so much by geography or location, but by his distinctive perception and application of Islamic ideas and principles. In other words, Imam Mohammed's unique understanding and vision of al–Islam is what forms and binds his community. And it's precisely his interpretation and implementation of al–Islam that separates the community from all other Muslim communities. Therefore, you are invited to review some of the watershed events that have spurred the community's growth which I documented during the four years since the last volume. Of course, this is only a scratching of the surface, since I am only one person and couldn't attend many of the consequential events that should have been included.

About the Author

Shortly before publication, Donald J. Trump became the first citizen in American history to be criminally charged, after serving as President of the United States. His one term in office sparked the collapse of the nation's two–party system wherein one political party, essentially, morphed into a cult of personality worshipers. Also, at the time of publication, America was leading twenty of the highest–income nations in gun related deaths. According to the 2023 available data, the USA's death rate by citizen–held firearms was 4.12 individuals for every 100,000 in the population which was twice the death rate in second place Chile; eight times the rate for third place Canada, and 10 times the rate for fourth place Portugal. It was also well–documented that the U.S. has the largest percentage of civilian–held guns—an estimated 393 million (also based on data at the time), out of a total of 857 million worldwide. This means that a little under five percent of the world's population possessed 45 percent of the world's civilian firearms. This social mindset can not sustain itself. The author contends that a careful study of the evolution of the community of Imam W. Deen Mohammed will help brake America's social and civil decline.
