Wallace D. Fard aka Wallace Fard Muhammad /fə.ˈrɑːd/ (born February 26, 1877) was a co-founder of the Nation of Islam. He appeared in Detroit in 1930 and had an obscure background and used several aliases. He taught a unique form of religion which was based on Islam to members of the city's African-American population. He was also a seller of silk, incense, and perfume and was remembered as being a light skinned black man, a light skinned Arab, and a white man. Fard was last seen in 1933 by Elijah Muhammad, when Fard took off in an airplane from the Detroit airport. Profile features of British father and dark eyes and complexion of Polynesian mother was evident in these Los Angeles Police shots of Wallace Dodd, alias Farad. Pictures were taken just prior to his confinement in San Quentin for the sale of narcotics. Remembering Master Fard Muhammad. February 26 is Saviors' Day, the birthday of the founder of the Nation of Islam. Master Fard Muhammad will probably never get his due for his contribution, but.
‘My name is W.D. Fard and I came from the Holy City of Mecca. More about myself I will not tell you yet, for the time has not yet come. I am your brother. You have not yet seen me in my royal robes.’ English and Law student. A red headed 22 year old who's away with the fairies View all posts by Alexandra Muhammad Speaks, Aug. 16, 1963 Needless to say this article, which was syndicated, was not well received by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Muslims of the Nation of Islam. The former argued that the story was a complete fabrication and that this “Wallace Dodd” character had no relation to Master Fard Muhammad, who was in fact an Arab born in Mecca, Saudi Arabia in 1877. On July 29 the Honorable Elijah Muhammad sent some of his followers to the Hearst newspaper with a $100, 000 check. He offered to pay all expenses to bring Wallace Dodd to the US and air nationally a debate between he and Dodd over the latter's claim to be the ‘Fard' that Muhammad was representing to the people. The offer was printed in the August 16, 1963 edition of the Muhammad Speaks newspaper in its on exposé entitled “Beware of Phony Claims.”
The release of the Walli D. Ford file to Congressman Rivers was a part of the FBI's counterintelligence offensive against the Nation of Islam designed to “make Muhammad look ridiculous” and thus curb the growth of the NOI. But feeding the file to the House Un-American Activities Committee was just the beginning of what will end up being, in the words of Karl Evanzz, “among the most successful COINTELPRO actions against the NOI.” Master Fard Muhammad the VENUSIAN who came as a God to seek out the lost tribe of Shabazz-Malachi York: The Holy Tablets pg. 150 . This is the sort of nonsense York taught his followers that W.D. Fard was a Venusian, leaving them to look like fools in public for ever mentioning Venus in the same breath with W.D. Fard Muhammad While in Detroit he met Wallace Fard Muhammad who was the founder of the Lost-Found Nation of Islam. Poole soon became Fard's chief assistant and in 1932 went to Chicago where he established the Nation of Islam's Temple, Number Two, which soon became the largest. When Fard disappeared in 1934, he returned to Detroit
Warith Deen Mohammed gained widespread support among the international Muslim community, but his changes to the Nation of Islam were not universally accepted. A number of dissident groups resisted, most notably those who followed Louis Farrakhan in breaking ranks with Mohammed. This group revived the name 'Nation of Islam' in 1977. In 1995 Mohammed released a statement expressing concern about Farrakhan's motivations and the racial divisiveness of his ministry. The pair embraced publicly and declared reconciliation at the annual Saviours' Day convention on February 25, 2000, but in August 10, 2007, Mohammed repeated his frustration with the separatist stance of the current Nation of Islam, stating that its leaders had, "for the last 10 years or more,...just been selling wolf tickets to the white race and having fun while they collect money and have fancy lifestyles." He predicted a quiet evolution in the NOI towards unity with the mainstream American Muslim community. A photo was taken of W.D. Fard in Detroit during booking before his release from police custody on May 26, 1933. The Hon. Elijah Muhammad's challenge here to prove their “Fard-is-Ford” claim by obtaining the Detroit mug shot clearly inspired the “scribble” on the 1926 LA mug shot of Ford identifying it with the Detroit arrest of Fard. What happened to the authentic Detroit mug shot? When this author requested the W.D. Fard file from the Detroit Police Department in the summer of 2002 I received the same doctored 1926 LA mug shot. The answer to this mystery is likely provided in a June 2, 1971 memo to the Chicago SAC concerning a “Destruction Project” during which pre-1961 files and photos associated with the Wallace Fard investigation were destroyed. The memo notes: “In re 1-A file, only one photo and/or negative was retained of photos prior to 1961.” Thus photos from the W.D. Fard file were destroyed. According to an Indices Search Slip dated May 5, 1957, on April 5, 1957 the file numbered 65-411-706 on Wallace D. Ford was destroyed. File 100-11506-531 on Wallace Fard was destroyed on the same day. Indices Search Slip October 20, 1957 notes that File 100-7006-979-24 on Wallace Ford destroyed. Thus files and photos of Fard and Ford were destroyed by the Bureau. The Destruction Project and the scribble on the LA mug shot are evidence of an FBI hoax and cover-up.Warith Deen Mohammed's first wife was Shirley Mohammed, with whom he had four children. By 1994, according to The Los Angeles Times, Mohammed had been married four times and had fathered eight children. Mohammed married Khadija Siddeeq in 2004. Mohammed's eldest child Laila Mohammed stated that Warith Deen practiced polygamy. However this polygamy assertion is disputed within the community. In February 1963 the Chicago field office learned that the Hon. Elijah Muhammad would not be speaking at the upcoming Saviours' Day due to health complications. On February 19 Hoover sent a memo to the Chicago field officer stating "now [is] the time to use the dossier on Fard to neutralize the NOI.” The FBI sent the Ford file to several large newspapers on July 4, 1963. On July 28, 1963 Ed Montgomery of the Los Angeles Evening Herald-Examiner printed the story under the title "Black Muslim Founder Exposed As White," as quoted above. Through wiretaps and a system of informants the FBI closely monitored the reaction to these stories from Muslims. It was noted that during a conversation with National Secretary John Ali about the article "Elijah was quite riled up about the story (File dated July 31, 1963)." Informants were asked to update the Bureau on "discussions at the NOI Temple or by individual members."
La Nation de l'Islam a été fondée en 1930 par Wallace Fard Muhammed. Il est né à La Mecque. Il a prêché d'une manière initiale en utilisant la Bible, mais il est devenu un critique de l'Écriture et a commencé à prêcher contre elle à la détresse émotionnelle de beaucoup de ses premiers disciples The Honorable Elijah Muhammad. He led the Nation of Islam from 1935 to 1975, taking over leadership of the group from its founder, Wallace Fard Muhammad. He is also know for having been a mentor to Malcolm X. His most famous book is called Message to the Blackman in America
. In February 1958 Hoover forwarded to the Chicago SAC (Special Agent in Charge) a 52 page “Correlation Summary on Wallace Don Ford (Wallie D. Ford), summarizing the investigation and all of the evidence up to that point. The FBI admitted: “It was not definitely determined whether the individual referred to as W.D. Fard…was identical with the subject of this summary (i.e. Wallie Ford).” In April Hoover terminated the investigation. On April 15, 1958, he sent a memo to SAC in Chicago stating:Fard founded the Nation of Islam. He made the Temple of Islam as the headquarter of his “Lost-Found Nation of Islam”. In the University of Islam, he conducted an elementary and a high school with extreme fanatical and anarchist ideology. Besides, he formed corps of male guards for defense named 'Fruit of Islam'. In addition to that, he organized a training facility for Muslim girl corps. The children of his followers started attending his radically unconventional teachings in elementary and high school.
In 1988, King Hassan II of Morocco, invited Mohammed to participate in the traditional devotions during Ramadan, stating: Through you Imam W. Deen Mohammed all the people in America are represented.

This lead to Muhammad encountering the teachings of Wallace Fard Muhammad in Detroit in 1931, who taught what he referred to as Islam to the city's Black residents. The enigmatic Fard Muhammad took Poole under his wing and the pair began forming the basis of the Nation of Islam
Wallace Fard Muhammad, whom the NOI deified as the True and Living God in person; or questioning his position as God due to the belief that Fard was born of a Caucasian mother. The story states that Allah (Clarence 13X) was then disciplined by the NOI an Black Muslims by the thousands pay homage to Wallace Farad, their “Prophet From Mecca,” in the mistaken belief that as founder of the black supremacy cult he is one of their own…Yet Wallace Fard is, admittedly, an enterprising, racketeering fake. He is not a Negro. He is a white man masquerading as a Negro. During the investigation, the FBI discovered that Master Fard Muhammad was actually Wallace Dodd Ford, a Californian with an extensive criminal recordFord, as the FBI later learned, was born in.
Karl Evanzz, in his book, The Messenger: The Rise and Fall of Elijah Muhammad, displays what he claims is the 1933 Detroit mug-shot of W.D. Fard (see photo at right). This picture first appeared in Ed. Montgomery's 1963 article, but it is not identified as Fard's Detroit mug-shot. However, in a 1965 follow-up to his original article in the San Francisco Examiner (February 28, 1965 A13) Montgomery does present this photo as the 1933 Detroit mug-shot. Indeed, scribbled on the left-hand corner of the photo are the numbers “45138, 5-26-33.” This is the date Fard Muhammad was arrested and booked in Detroit (May 26, 1933) and his identification number there (45138). But why is it scribbled on the photo as if an afterthought? No doubt because it was surely an afterthought. It was scribbled on the photo decades later. Why? In 1877, a Savior was born [i.e. Wallace Fard]A Savior is born, not to save the Jews but to save the poor Nation of Islam. A Savior has come to save you from sin, not because you are by nature a sinner but because you have followed a sinner Warith Deen Mohammed (born Wallace D. Muhammad; October 30, 1933 – September 9, 2008), also known as W. Deen Mohammed, Imam W. Deen Muhammad and Imam Warith Deen, was a progressive African-American Muslim leader, theologian, philosopher, Muslim revivalist, and Islamic thinker (1975–2008) who disbanded the original Nation of Islam (NOI) in 1976 and transformed it into a semi orthodox mainstream Islamic movement, the World Community of Al-Islam in the West which later became the American Society of Muslims. He was a son of Elijah Muhammad, the leader of the Nation of Islam from 1933 to 1975.

He began to live in Detroit vending raincoats and silks. During his stay in Detroit, he approached the city’s Black population. Fard asserted that he seeks to secure freedom, equality, and justice for the Black people of America (not the Negroes). He preached his hate theory among the Blacks. He also warned them to be ready for a certain race war. Propagating his idiosyncratic discourses on Islam, he declared that Christianity is the religion of slave owners. He replaced the names of his disciples with Arabic names who inherited those while in slavery.At Fard Muhammad’s request, Poole abandoned his “Slavemaster” name, and adopted Muhammad as his surname. For virtually every day and night for three and a half years, Fard Muhammad would set about teaching his eager protegee. Elijah Muhammad, who says he “Felt jailed” due to amount of time they spent together, compiled these lessons into The Supreme Wisdom, which promotes the ideals of black empowerment through Islamic culture, a book which the Nation of Islam still studies today as part of it’s doctrine. Elijah Muhammad started calling Fard W. D. Fard Muhammed and, eventually, Allah in Person, i.e. Allah (God). The Nation of Islam usually still calls him Master Fard Muhammad. When the Nation of Islam started to be seen as a threat in the 1950s and 1960s, the FBI investigated them, looking for Fard
He became the national leader (Supreme Minister) of the Nation of Islam in 1975 after his father's death. He rejected the previous deification of Wallace Fard Muhammad, accepted whites as fellow-worshippers, forged closer ties with mainstream Muslim communities, and introduced the Five Pillars of Islam into his group's theology. It is important to note that in the files for this period (1942-1956) no mention is made of Wallie Dodd Ford. The latter wasn't discovered by the FBI until 1957. When the Bureau conducted a search on Fard's various aliases, they submitted “Ford” based on a reference in a 1938 study of the nascent Nation of Islam by sociologist Erdmann D. Beynon who listed "Professor Ford" as an alias of Master Fard Muhammad, though he does not identify his source for this information. The search turned up two “Wallace Fords”. After searching INS records in early 1957, the FBI found a Wallace Ford born February 12, 1898 at Bolton, England. He entered the US at San Pedro California on July 25, 1937 having resided in London. This was not their man, however, as a November 29 memo confirmed: "It would appear the above individual is the former prominent movie actor." Wallace D. Fard, also called Walli Farrad, Farrad Mohammed, F. Mohammed Ali, or Wallace Fard Muhammad, (born c. 1877, Mecca—died 1934?), Mecca-born founder of the Nation of Islam (sometimes called Black Muslim) movement in the United States.. Fard immigrated to the United States sometime before 1930. In that year, he established in Detroit the Temple of Islām as well as the University of. Wallace Fard Muhammad’s story allegedly ends in 1934, in a car outside a Detroit Airport. Elijah Muhammad, tears in his eyes, begged Master Fard to stay. Fard Muhammad explained that Elijah could fulfill the duties of The Nation on his own, and then allegedly boarded a flight to Chicago. This would be the very last confirmed sighting of Fard Muhammad. Fard Muhammad would not see the vicious schisms in the Nation of Islam following his departure; Nor would he see his protoge seize leadership of The Nation. He would not see Elijah Muhammad’s controversial 40 year reign, or his immortalisation as “The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad”. He would not see the rise of Malcolm X, the man who put the Nation on the map, nor would he see his departure and subsequent assassination. He would not see the abandonment of the Nation’s core values after Elijah Muhammad’s son took over in 1975, or see the revival of the “Lost Found Nation” at the hands of current leader Minister Louis Farrakhan in 1977. He would not see the tremendous power and respect the Nation commanded, and would not see the schisms and violence which threatened to destroy the foundation of his beloved Nation.

Fard Muhammad as a semi-literate, felon convicted on drug charges who served time in San Quentin Prison was mainstreamed in academnic circles, due in no small measure to the writings of Karl Evanzz of The Washington Post (especially his Judas Factor  and The Messenger ). Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, July 28, 1963 Evanzz, like Montgomery before him, based his ‘biography' of Fard on the declassified FBI files produced during the FBI's multi-decade search for the founder the Nation of Islam, an effort which would prove to be, in Evanzz's words, “one of the most exhaustive and expensive searches on a noncriminal matter in (the FBI's) history.” The fact that these files were produced largely in the course of the Bureau's counterintelligence program (COINTELPRO) against the NOI – a program infamous for is propensity to deploy dirty tricks such as misinformation - in no way dissuaded Evanzz from building his entire ‘history' of the movement's founder from these clearly hostile sources. He thus stated confidently: The origins of Wallace Fard Muhammad, founder of the first Nation of Islam (NOI) mosque in the United States, are somewhat unclear. He was known by at least five other names: Wali Farad, Farrad Mohammed, F. Mohammed Ali, Wallace Dodd Fard, and Wallace Dodd Ford Wallace Fard Muhammad or W.F. Muhammad - Messiah Characteristics. Wallace Fard Muhammad traveled the entire world. He could speak 16 languages fluently and write 10 of them. He learned the language of the birds and extracted the language of the people on Mars and had knowledge of all life in the universe In 1862, Wallis Willis wrote a song entitled Swing Low, Sweet Chariot. In 1930 Master Wallace Fard Muhammad began teaching Black people in Detroit Michigan a unique form of Islam called Supreme Wisdom. A part of this unique and popular message was his identifying for his chief student Elijah Muhammad, a dreadful looking plane in the sky
Only if you are a member of the Nation of Islam (NOI). My prediction one day is that they will remove the name 'Islam' and call themselves appropriatley the Nation of Black Civil Rights According to Fard . The NOI was founded in Detroit on July 4,.. Dodd's police ‘rap sheet' includes conviction for bootlegging and a San Quentin Prison term for the sale of narcotics. In late 1933 or in 1934 Fard mysteriously disappeared from public record. From then onwards, he is untraceable. Following his disappearance, Elijah Muhammad succeeded him as the chief of the Nation of Islam. According to the version of Elijah, he saw Fard off at the Detroit airport when Fard was being deported. However, as Fard never surfaced again, the mystery of his disappearance never saw any light of the day. His disciples found his disappearance as a genuine cause for worshipping him as the incarnation of God. In 1942, the Nation of Islam in an official publication declared Fard as the long-awaited 'Messiah' of the Christians and the 'Mahdi' of the Muslims.
The REAL problem for the Nation of Islam is a simple contradiction, which undermines ALL of the NOI teachings concerning their theology. The White man is the Devil. Fard Muhammad is half White, and this is what Elijah Muhammad himself taught. So, the White man is the Devil! Unless, he's half White, then he's GOD Upon the death of his father on February 25, 1975, Mohammed was unanimously chosen as the leader of the Nation of Islam and introduced to the NOI membership as such at the annual Saviours' Day convention on February 26, 1975. Among the first changes Mohammed instituted, he dropped the title Supreme Minister and took the titles Mujaddid, Chief Imam, or simply Imam, in 1976.  The same year, he unveiled a new flag for the NOI community.  This is a religious group founded in Detroit, Michigan, by Wallace Fard Muhammad in 1930. It strives to improve the spiritual, mental, social, and economic condition of the black men and women of America. It also promotes the belief that God will bring about a universal government of peace والاس فرد محمد (انگلیسی: Wallace Fard Muhammad ; 26 فوریه (گزارش شده) حدود 1877 - در ۱۹۳۴ ناپدید شد) بنیانگذار امت اسلام بود. او در سال ۱۹۳۰ به دیترویت رسید و با پس زمینه مبهم و چندین نام مستعار، برداشت خاصی از اسلام را به اعضای جامعه. Wallace D. Fard, a.k.a. Wallace Fard Muhammad (also believed to be American-born Wallace Dodd) spent three years in Detroit where he opened the first NOI mosque. Three years after he began teaching, he disappeared, passing along the leadership of the NOI to Elijah Mohammad, who then proceeded to deify the Master Fard Muhammad, claiming he was.

Few NOI members knew that Fard had other reasons besides religion to adhere to a strict diet
According to the Final Call newspaper, "The Janazah prayer service was delayed for close to an hour so the huge crowd that had assembled could be organized and situated." The Chicago Tribune wrote that 8,000 Muslims attended his funeral. His funeral was held at the Islamic Foundation Masjid in Villa Park, Illinois. Imam W.D. Mohammed was buried at Mount Glenwood Memory Gardens (South) Glenwood, Cook County, Illinois, USA He was a prominent political speaker. Mohammed gave the first invocation in the United States Senate ever by a Muslim in 1992 That same year, he became the first Muslim to deliver an address on the floor of the Georgia State Legislature. In 1993, he gave an Islamic prayer during the first Inaugural Interfaith Prayer Service of President Bill Clinton, and again in 1997 at the second Interfaith Prayer Service. In 1996 he was invited to Egypt by Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to address the Supreme Council of Affairs in Cairo on the theme "Islam and the Future of Dialogue between Civilizations". In the course of these inquiries I spoke to a number of men in Willington [unintelligible] with Maori affairs and welfare. One such person –a Mr. Steve [unintelligible] informed me of the fact that it is most unusual to discover a Maori family named Ford, but he was able to recall that such a family lived in the Thomas District some years ago. He was also able to recall that a relative of this family had, many years ago, traveled to California in the United States of America. Further inquiries by the Thomas Police established that this person was Walter [D. Ford]. His brother – [unintelligible] is now residing at 843 Weeton Road...and when interviewed recently he gave the following particulars concerning his brother: Full name – Watana (?) [unintelligible] (usually known as Walter [Ford]) – born at Thomas in October, 1881 and went to America about 1912; that he joined the American Forces during the 1914-18 World War; that in 1957 he returned to New Zealand for about six months; that he returned to New Zealand for a further six months in 1959; that he married and is at present residing at 1103 Pacific Avenue, [unintelligible], California. From the photograph supplied, however, those persons who knew 'Walter [Ford]', say that he is not identical with Ford, alias Farad. [FBI File, Wallace D. Fard, LA 105-2604, August 29, 1963, page 13] Beyond his public role in religion and politics, Mohammed was involved in real estate, import clothing and skin care. During his excommunications from the Nation of Islam in his 30s, he served as a laborer. Imam Mohammed was also a businessman and endeavored to promote business among those that accepted to follow his leadership example. . All written records and documents that he or other people filled out on his behalf list him as white or caucasian. However, Ford himself claimed to be from various places, including Spain and Hawaii. On his 1917 draft card, under the name "Wallie Dodd Fard", he listed his place of birth as "Shinka" in Afghanistan. "Shinka" never actually existed, but there is a district called Shinkay in the Zabul Province of Afghanistan.
Mohammed died in Chicago in early September 2008 of a likely heart attack. His body was found in his home by his assistant Rafa Muhammad on Tuesday September 9. In addition to cardiovascular disease, Mohammed suffered from diabetes. You are commenting using your Google account. ( Log Out / Change ) The Nation of Islam is a Islamist group. It was founded in Detroit, Michigan, in 1930 by Wallace Fard Muhammad. The main goal of the Nation of Islam is to bring back the spiritual, mental, social and economic condition of blacks in the United States. Since 1978, the group has been led by Louis Farrakhan. Malcolm X also was a member
Mohammed was born Wallace Delaney Muhammad on Yemans Street in Hamtramck, Michigan in 1933.  In 1980 he changed his name to Warithuddin Muhammad, Warith Deen Muhammad, which translates to 'Inheritor of the Religion of Muhammad'. His parents were Clara and Elijah Muhammad, both highly active in the Nation of Islam (NOI), the organization that preached a form of Black nationalism and its own version of Islam. From 1934 until his death in 1975, Elijah Muhammad led the Nation under the title, "the Messenger of Allah." Ford/Fard lied about his background so many times that it's hard to tell what's true and what's not. He could very plausibly be Maori from New Zealand trying to pass as an Arab, or he could genuinely be Arabic. But he's certainly not black like he claimed. J. Edgar Hoover, Former FBI Director This 1942-43 search turned up very little, however, and was subsequently closed. After receiving reports of the continuous “explosion in the Nation of Islam membership,” the Chicago field office requested that FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover renew the investigation on W.D. Fard.

Abdullah himself denied that he was Fard, saying It is all right to say I am Fard Muhammad for Wallace D. Muhammad. I taught him some lessons Do you personally think Fard fled Detroit in the 1930s and lived on elsewhere, or do you think he was killed? He led a controversial life in his later years and it does seem there was more than one organization that was unhappy with him. I don't know what to think.Were Ford and Fard truly the same person? What happened to Fard after he left Detroit? Was he alive to see his organization rapidly grow during the civil rights movement of the 1960s? What would he have thought of it?This too contradicts Evanzz's claim that: “Though most Muslims have refused to look at the evidence, the Bureau correctly concluded that Wallace D. Fard and Wallace D. Ford were one in the same (The Messenger, 399).” The Bureau in 1974, in fact, specifically noted that these were not its conclusions and in 1958 admitted that “It was not definitely determined” whether W.D. Fard and Wallace Ford were identical. Thus, on what basis does Evanzz claim that the FBI “proved the dual identity” of W.D. Fard/Wallie Dodd Ford? Nowhere in the 816 pages of documents does the FBI make this clear. In 1963, after tracking down Walli Ford's relatives in New Zealand and showing them a photo of Master Fard Muhammad, the Bureau actually discovered that they were not identical. On December 5, 1963 the Bureau closed its file on Ford.
4. After Elijah Muhammad died in 1975, his son Wallace Deen Muhammad became its new leader. Under his leadership, the Nation went back to traditional Islam, transitioned from radical racism to racial harmony, & denounced the deification of Wallace Fard Muhammad. Thus the organization was renamed the American Muslim Mission. 5 Elijah Muhammad contended that it had been revealed to him by W. D. Fard, (Allah) that there was a great mother plane (aircraft/spaceship) which is really a small maneuverable planet that orbits as much as forty miles above the earth Warith Deen Mohammed (born Wallace D. Muhammad; October 30, 1933 - September 9, 2008), also known as W. Deen Mohammed, Imam W. Deen Muhammad and Imam Warith Deen, was a progressive African-American Muslim leader, theologian, philosopher, Muslim revivalist, and Islamic thinker (1975-2008) who disbanded the original Nation of Islam (NOI) in 1976 and transformed it into a semi orthodox. Dr. Wesley Muhammad successfully debates fellow Islamic scholars about the concept of Allah in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad—the foundation of the Islamic teachings in the Nation of Islam. This book is the appendix of another book titled Take Another Look: The Quran, the Sunnah and the Islam of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. 149 pages
Elijah Muhammad and Wallace Fard continued to communicate until 1934, when Wallace Fard disappeared. Elijah Muhammad succeeded him in Detroit and was named Minister of Islam. After the disappearance, Elijah Muhammad told followers that Wallace Muhammad had literally been Allah on earth Wallace had been taught to tear up pictures of white men, even when he saw them in the paper, but pictures of the Nation of Islam's founder and Savior W.D. Fard showed a fair-skinned man.
In 1933, Fard disappeared and a power struggle within the NOI emerged. Officially, the NOI believes Fard departed Earth via supernatural means. A variety of other claims emerged; that he went to Hawaii, New Zealand, and even to the Middle East. Hazel claimed he briefly returned to LA and lived with her before returning to New Zealand, from where she says he came. But none can be verified and he is almost certainly long dead now.A self-professed Islamic prophet, he founded the Temple of Islam and the University of Islam as well. He used the university as the breeding ground for preaching his weird theories and converting his followers to Islam. His slogan of ‘redemption through Islam’ theory attracted the people around him. Soon, he garnered a sizeable number of followers. The fresh immigrants from down South with severe economic hardships fell for his rhetoric and quickly became his followers.
Only a few things are certain. Wallace Fard came to Detroit in the early 1930s and, in-between peddling silks and perfumes, preaches a unique brand of Islam to the local black population. Attendances to his sermons rapidly grow over the next three years and then suddenly, without announcing his departure, he disappears, never to be seen or heard from again. In contrast to Fard's story, Karl Evanzz, noted NOI authority and author of The Messenger: The Rise and Fall of Elijah Muhammad, has argued that Fard was born Wali Dodd Fard in New Zealand in.
What is known, however, is that Wallace Fard Muhammad would arrive in Detroit in 1930 amid a background of great economic migration from the South. Such migration would see an influx of African Americans arriving in the future Motor City. Fard Muhammad, an obscure past and a host of aliases under his belt, began to go door to door in these newly founded black communities, selling silks and regaling them with tales of the homeland, Africa, described as a Utopia, and claimed that African Americans had been brainwashed by “white devils”, and that the original culture of all black people had been destroyed by oppressive white slave masters, and that the black race was the supreme race, the father of all mankind and gods of the universe.

E: It is not Farard Mohammed. He is 86 years old and he was born in the city of Mecca and he is an Arab. This is not an Arab and he speaks 16 different languages.There are two popular theories regarding Ford/Fard's background - that he was the child of a South Asian/Arabic man and a white woman, or the child of a Maori man and a white woman. Either way, most people who have investigated his life have come to the conclusion that he was probably mixed race and may have emigrated from New Zealand or the Middle East.
After the infamous documentary called The Hate That Hate Produced aired in 1959 the ranks of the NOI swelled with new recruits. As a result, the FBI initiated its “second major counterintelligence offensive aimed at destroying the Nation of Islam,” according to Karl Evanzz. Since “Fard's true identity (is) unknown” the Bureau decided to discredit the movement by publishing a fabricated biography of its founder. The FBI fabricated a piece of biographical propoganda according to which Fard Muhammad was a Turkish born Nazi agent for Hitler during World War II. This ‘biography' indicated that Fard and Elijah Muhammad had concocted the idea of the Nation of Islam while they both were in prison together in Milan, Michigan in 1943. The FBI sent this propagana to its “friends in the media.” One such friend was the New Crusader newspaper of Chicago. On August 15, 1959, Mohd Yakub Khan published the innovated ‘biography' under the title "White Man Is God For Cult of Islam." As Evanzz himself admits in his book, The Judas Factor, Khan “had gotten his information from a selection of the FBI's file on Wallace Fard, which it released in response to the surge in the NOI membership”.But in a July 30, 1963 memo concerning the Montgomery article the Bureau admits: "We have not been able to verify his (W.D. Fard's) birth date or birth place nor identify his parents. W.D. Fard has not been seen or heard from since 1934.” In an internal note appended to an August 6 letter Hoover sent to an inquirer regarding the Montgomery article it was affirmed: “Farad has been reported to be both Negro and white; however, fingerprint cards and Identification Division records at time of arrests show his color was white and of Arabian descent.” The FBI thus knew that Master Fard Muhammad was a white skinned Arab, not a “dark, Mexican looking” New Zealander. These FBI confessions completely contradict not only Ed Montgomery but also Karl Evanzz who claimed in his book, The Messenger, The NOI was created by Wallace D. Fard, also known as Wallace Fard Muhammad. Fard claimed to come from the Islamic city of Mecca. He began a mosque in Detroit in 1930. He taught that Christianity should be rejected since it was the slave-master's religion. In 1934 Fard disappeared and was neither seen nor heard from again Wallace Fard Muhammad (1877-1934?) oli USA jutlustaja, organisatsiooni Nation of Islam esimese mošee rajaja.

Wallace D. Fard (also called Walli Farrad, Farrad Mohammed, F. Mohammed Ali, or Wallace Fard Muhammad) was a Mecca-born founder of the Nation of Islam (sometimes called Black Muslim) movement in the United States. Fard immigrated to the United States sometime before 1930 In 1929 a mysterious fellow by the name of Wallace Fard Muhammad (presumed to have been born Wallace Dodd Ford) joined the Moorish Science Temple. After Drew Ali's death, a struggle for control of the MSTA — and its considerable financial resources — erupted and Fard ended up fleeing Chicago for Detroit In an effort to “inconclusively determine the whereabouts of Allah,” the FBI followed the leads suggesting that Walli Ford was born in New Zealand and that, according to his common-law wife, he was returning to New Zealand. The Bureau traveled to New Zealand with photos of Fard Muhammad. They had hoped to be able to finally identify Fard and Ford by tracking down the latter's family. On December 7, 1962 the Bureau received answers to their queries in a letter from the Willington, New Zealand Chief Commissioner of State Police. The letter read in part: Imam Mohammed renounced the black nationalism of his father Elijah Muhammad's movement to lead a more traditional and racially tolerant form of Islam for black Muslims. Wallace D. Fard; a. On his 44th Birthday October 30, 1977, Mohammed received the Key to the City of Detroit, Michigan from the then Mayor of Detroit Coleman Young, along with a Proclamation declaring October 30, 1977 Wallace D.

Master Wallace Fard Muhammad the great satirist was believed to have been born in Saudi Arabia, from a Black Arabian father and a Caucasian mother. It is also believed by some that his father was Syrian, and his mother from Russia. We will look at other possible origins of Fard later in this thesis The Nation of Islam (NOI) was founded in Detroit in 1930 by Wallace Dodd Fard, an itinerant salesman.Fard's movement was composed of traditional Islamic teachings augmented by, and interlaced with obscure mathematical, Gnostic, and heretical accretions, including an identification of all blacks as Asiatic Fard Muhammad, Animation Department: Pop Quiz Hotshot. Fard Muhammad is known for his work on Pop Quiz Hotshot (2015), Jesus, Bro! (2017) and Nostalgia Critic (2007) Elijah Muhammad and Wallace Fard continued to communicate until 1934, when Wallace Fard disappeared. Elijah Muhammad succeeded him in Detroit and was named Minister of Islam. After the disappearance, Elijah Muhammad told followers that Allah had come as Wallace Fard, in the flesh, to share his teachings that are a salvation for his followers In 1930, a man would arrive in Detroit and alter the course of African American, and American history, forever. He would found perhaps the single largest black power organization in history, an organization that once boasted the likes of Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali, among their ranks. An organization that celebrates him to this day as the “Mahdi” – The redeemer of Islam, and even Allah in the flesh. Yet why is nothing known about where this man came from, who he was, or where he went?
The Nation of Islam is an African-American political and religious group founded in Detroit in 1930 by Wallace Fard Muhammad. LOUIS FARRAKHAN: 5 OF THE NATION OF ISLAM LEADER'S MOST CONTROVERSIAL. The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, Wallace Fard Muhammad's protege and leader of The Nation of Islam for 40 years. At Fard Muhammad's request, Poole abandoned his Slavemaster name, and adopted Muhammad as his surname. For virtually every day and night for three and a half years, Fard Muhammad would set about teaching his eager protegee Ugh, I've been going back and forth for the past ten minutes trying to decide if I think the pictures in link 1 and link 2 are of the same person. I guess so, because if you compare their features (ears, nose, chin, mouth, eyes and eyebrows), they're very similar. They also have a similar receding hairline that poofs out along the side. But I don't get that instant feeling of recognition and "wow, these guys are obviously the same person!", so I don't know.
The Nation of Islam (NOI) is a syncretic new religious movement founded in Detroit, Michigan by Wallace D. Fard Muhammad on July 4, 1930. The Nation of Islam's stated goals are to improve the. God, it is written, appeared to the black people of Detroit's Paradise Valley slums on July 4, 1930, in the person of a peddler of clothing and silks known variously as Wallace D. Fard, W. Fard Muhammad, F. Muhammad Ali, Ali Farrad, or simply Mr. Fard, was how journalist Peter Goldman described him in his seminal, 1973 work, The Death. Who was Wallace Fard and what happened to him? How did the founder of a group that recruited men like Malcolm X and Muhammed Ali slip under the radar so easily? To this day, nobody knows.
During the investigation, the FBI discovered that Master Fard Muhammad was actually Wallace Dodd Ford, a Californian with an extensive criminal record…Ford, as the FBI later learned, was born in 1891 in Hawaii on February 25. Led today by Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam was started in Detroit in 1930 by Wallace Fard Muhammad Up to 25,000 are expected this weekend in Detroit for the Nation of Islam's annual conventio The language employed by Evanzz – the FBI discovered and the Bureau concluded – suggests that Evanzz's identification of W.D Fard with Wallace Dodd Ford is an identification that the FBI itself made consequent to their investigation. He even claims that the FBI “proved the dual identity beyond a reasonable doubt.” However, a close and careful reading of the 816 pages of the FBI Files on Master Fard Muhammad made available through the Freedom of Information Act (re: Wallace D. Fard) demonstrates unambiguously that not only is Evanzz guilty of poor historical-critical method by relying on hostile sources to write a biography, but he is also guilty of completely misrepresenting those sources – making them ‘do what they don't'. That is to say, even though the FBI did deploy this ‘Fard=Ford' biography as part of a public misinformation campaign directed against Elijah Muhammad and the NOI, privately (as revealed by the now declassified documents) they concluded that no such identity is evident. What's your opinion on this article? I believe that Ford was a FBI plant sent in as a cointel agent to gather intelligence on the civil rights movement that would getting traction in many inner city's and southern States. J. Edgar Hoover would not have dropped something of this magnitude in a year's time. The 2 smear campaigns that were released also have me wondering what the agency hoped to accomplish. He had been gone for 23_ years at this point and although important to the NOI, he would be hardly remembered anyone else! The whole thing smells like an intelligence agency operation to me.

While emphasizing unity within the Muslim community, Warith Deen Mohammed called upon the American Muslim community to establish a new school of fiqh, a code of conduct for the observance of rituals, morals and social legislation in Islam. He told ISLAMICA magazine in 2008 that he felt that the madhhab—the schools of thought within fiqh—were geographically influenced and should be regionally developed, suggesting that "I think we are gradually getting a sense of madhabs in America, especially those like me. We are getting a sense of madhabs. And with the coming generation I think that we will be getting a much stronger sense of it. It is coming more and more." The truth may never be known about this mysterious individual, nor may his true origins be uncovered. However, Fard Muhammad’s impact on American history cannot be denied, and he instilled in a large group of African Americans something they had never had before; a philosophy – and that’s what made Fard Muhammad and The Nation so powerful. found: Shabazz, H.B. Essays of the life and teaching of Master W. Fard Muhammad, 1990: p. 11 (b. Feb. 26, 1877; Master Fard Muhammad used many names: Wallace D. Fard. But the Nation of Islam themselves reject the FBI's findings. They claim Wallace Dodd Ford was not Wallace Fard Muhammad. Fard, they say, was born in 1877, which would make him 53 in 1930. The NOI consider Fard to have been a light-skinned black man.
The FBI opened an investigation into Fard in 1957 and closed it a year later in 1958. They traced one Wallace Dodd Ford of Los Angeles, a violent man with a criminal record who worked at a local restaurant. Ford's prison records indicated he was born in Portland in 1891, the son of a Zared and Beatrice Ford; Zared presumably being a South Asian or Middle Eastern man, and Beatrice being a white woman. But both Zared and Beatrice were said to have been born in Hawaii. FARD, WALLACE D. According to an article entitled Black Gods of the Inner City (by Prince-A-Cuba), Gnosis Magazine, Fall 1992, pp. 56-63: The story of the NOI itself starts with a man variously known as Wali Farrad, W.D. Fard, Wallace Fard Muhammad, and Farrad Muhammad, but who is best known as Master Fard Muhammad The discovery was a trove of information about the early years of the NOI and the life and times of W.D. Fard, particularly his relationships with Mohammed and Elijah Muhammad
On Saturday, September 3, 2005, the Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR) presented an award to W. Deen Mohammed in recognition of his outstanding leadership role in the American Muslim community at The Mosque Cares sponsored Annual Islamic Convention. An interesting piece of information that emerged from Elijah Muhammad's son is that Fard was an excellent cook and dietitian. This fits with Ford's former professions. Fard encouraged his followers not to drink alcohol or eat pork, which is standard practice for Muslims. But his strict culinary concerns may have emerged from elsewhere: it is said he carried packets of sugar in his coat pocket and is said to have bled easily. This would suggest he was, in fact, diabetic. Wallace Fard Muhammad, born in Feb. 26, 1877, commended his mission, which was to restore His lost people. The lost people were of African decent. Those who were captured, enslaved and dehumanized in order to serve as slaves for over three centuries
