WHY WE FAST DURING DECEMBER DISCUSSION

 THIS WEDNESDAY ON BLOGTALK RADIO

A SEASONAL  DISCUSSION FROM H. KHALIF KHALIFAH

NOVEMBER 29, 2010

NAT TURNER LIBRARY, SOUTHAMPTON COUNTY, VA – Central to everything in “The Message” delivered to Black people, by The Honorable Elijah Muhammad was the dictum, “Do For Self.” This dictum hinged on another of his declarations that ‘We Must Have Some Land!”

  Many, correctly, read in the latter declaration, “We Must Have Some Land,” a key part of the Reparations package The Nation of Islam demanded of America.  After all, behind the entire meaning of the Great Issue of Reparations, is that if the culprit in the criminal act that caused the damage, the payment of Reparations would “begin the healing process;” the healing would empower the repaired people to practice self-determination.

  This implies that the repaired people can, in fact manage their own affairs, across all socialization requirements of a Free Willed people. Of course this fact also scares “to death” the naysayers who do not believe Black people can manage their own affairs -  governing themselves by running a government.

Throughout our history, we who have documentation that we have always had individuals who had, absolutely, no doubt that we are capable. We work with the understanding that we can aim to achieve nothing less than the right to govern self, if we really want complete freedom.

TREATING THE SPIRITUAL SIDE OF LIFE:

THE DECEMBER FAST DECLARED BY MR. MUHAMMAD

  We do not know this as a certainty, but I think we can reasonably conclude that when the Honorable Elijah Muhammad declared a December Fast for members of the Nation of Islam, besides the obvious and practical reasons he gave us, he also realized that there is no other known physical exercise the human can engage self in over a period of time, to connect to and evolve the Unseen part of his being, that is more effective than abstaining from the consumption of material substances into our bodies.

DECEMBER FAST TO BE DISCUSSED

ON RADIO THIS COMING WEDNESDAY, 12/1/2010

  It is the examining of the many awesome Spiritual Benefits from the December Fast that will be discussed in the last and final episode of “Correcting, Preserving and Propagating Black History,” this Wednesday, December 1, 2010 at 12 noon. We shall also explain why, since circa, 1987 we have asked every Black person in America to fast with us on the First Day of the 31 days that is Black Muslims will be fasting.

  Since the stated purpose for the Radio Show is a review of the book by Areeb Malik Shabazz called “The Suppressed Rebellion: Quotations from 450 Afrikans from 1555 to 2002,” questions and answers drafted from the introduction to the landmark book will be reviewed.

  This may be the last episode on Blogtalkradio.com, but it shall not be the last event to continue our quest to induce black people to take advantage of opportunities, in this day and time, to “Correct, Preserve and Propagate our own History. But going forward, it will be via invitation, RSVP only. Call  434-378-2140  434-378-2140 for more information.
