    Mother’s Milk #SamiyyahSaafirMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Family

    Samiyyah Saafir-Muhammad was born Jacqueline Glover in New York City in 1951. After spending her early years in foster care, moving four times before the age of three, she settled in with her aunt, following her father’s passing.


    While still in elementary school Samiyyah took an interest in helping other students do well, joining “The Future Teachers’ Club” in the fifth grade. As a high school student, Samiyyah became aware her people’s struggle for freedom—witnessing civil rights demonstrations, protests, assassinations and riots—and decided she wanted to help somehow.  It was in this atmosphere that she went off to Northeastern University in Boston where she majored in Education. Her stay there was short-lived, however, as she was introduced to the teachings of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and thereafter joined the Nation of Islam. Within the Nation of Islam’s Muhammad University, Samiyyah underwent educational training and worked as a teacher’s assistant.


    Since 2005, Samiyyah has had the privilege of serving as the Directress at Muhammad University of Islam in Atlanta, which serves students from Pre-K to the eighth grade. She has been blessed to carry on the 84-year educational tradition, which was started by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his brave followers in the 1930’s.


    A widow after 35 years of marriage, Samiyyah presently enjoys the blessing of her and her husband’s nine children: six sons and three daughters, all of whom attended or are attending HBCUs. Samiyyah has been a mother to not only her nine children, but also to her two stepchildren, her nieces and nephews, her eight grandchildren and countless other children and adults in the community who come to her for advice, wisdom and guidance. Affectionately called MamaMiyyah, Samiyyah’s house is never empty.

    Are You Being A Godly Example?

    in Spirituality

    When people look at your life, what do they see?  Are you following Jesus' example or are you living life like the world.  What examples are you giving to your children, grandchildren, or the children in your neighborhood.  Also what about the unsaved parents in your area.  Are you being a Godly example to them as to how they should live or are you living like the rest of the world with no evidence of God anywhere in your life.  Is your speech loving and kind or are you harsh towards those you come in contact with.  We are suppose to be an example of Jesus Christ in the earth.  It is time to check ourselves,

    I was just thinking...What the F*%k?

    in Education

    "These are the times that try men's souls"...Theses are the times when we curse out loud and then after cursing try to find some solutions.


    So many of us want to put a bandaid over a infected head wound, to cover up what has been festering since enslaved black people were brought to this country to build this nation and make others rich!


    Then we have are asked to cope and justify the overarching threats and fears that control the dominate society. We have been told to suffer in silence and understand thier need to kill us. In the Boardrooms of the world the questions is asked:


    What do you do with a people you feel you no longer need?


    What do you do with the children,grandchildren and great-grand children of the enslaved?


    We who have built the infrastruture for this nations prosperity are now we are used as grist for the mill of the prision industrial system, social service system, military industrial complex and primary targets for the war on poverty and drugs used by coroprate and  govermental agencies as the code word for war on the poor and black.


    In the open prisions of our inner cities we are patrolled and beaten and murdered at the will of police officers, vigilanties and frightened or annoyed citizens who cover for each others hatred and racism and justify the murders of men and women of African descent. 


    We who haven't educated our children and are unaware of the history of racism in the police departments and judicial system look at a black Police Officers, Mayors or Presidents and don't recognize the black-face on the System of White Supremacy, we are believe they are the fruits of our progress!


    Tonight we ask WTF is really going on?

    Not So Mad Science #HaroldMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Science

    Hosted By: Harold Muhammad


    Harold, an eclectic and voracious reader, began his venture in the world of the written word as a child of 2 years.  Scraps of paper, candy wrappers, dictionary's right through the entire encyclopedia Britannica. Yet Harold was driven to books of the sciences. Physics, Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, he met them all with great wonder and fascination. He delved into each discipline as if his very life depended upon understanding its depth.


    It was not until the words of The Hon. Elijah Muhammad that the essence and understanding of the sciences began to have true purpose and meaning. He said, "all there is to know is written in a book, read".


    Harold began his collegiate pursuit at Hampton Institute; he then forayed to Fairleigh Dickenson University. At FDU the practice of the Social Sciences, public activism, and public speaking became a trusted part of mental fabric.


    Harold is the husband to Celestine Muhammad, and the father of 10 extraordinary children, and 8 grandchildren. Harold has the benefit of having the most exceptional and wondrous teachers to whom he owes all that he has learned, will learn and knows to this very day, The Most  Hon. Elijah Muhammad, the Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan, his Father Alfred Eatman, and his Grandfather  the Late Captain, Harold D. Hook.

    Words from the Well with Wendy L. Harvey

    in Family

     


    The manifestation of God's given vision came to pass in the form of a ministry called the Ark Christian Worship Center.


     


    After serving as a deacon at Bethel Deliverance International Church and now serving on the Board of Pastors at the Deliverance Evangelistic Church,


    Rev. Charles M. Jones accepted the call on his life and was ordained a pastor and ventured out to begin the church affectionately known as “The Ark.”


     


    The heartbeat of “The Ark” lied within the passion of seeing souls saved and building real relationship in Christ within the community in which it resides.


    Often using the words family and community interchangeably, Pastor Jones believes that through the Word of God, the family and the community can


    be saved. Starting with his own blended family, his beautiful wife Laural, their 8 children and three grandchildren he has made this commitment as an example first for many to follow. Currently he is the appointed Pastor of New Umbria Baptist Church in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia. He is a 2014 recipient of the Lucien E. Blackwell Guiding Lights in the Community Award as well as a Board member of the Blue Bell Hill Civic Association for Wissahickon, Germantown/ W. Mt Airy.


     


    Pastor Jones is experienced in preaching and teaching the Word of God, ministry leadership, care program for congregation and community. Enjoy developing and implementing strategies for discipleship training within the Church and outreach/ evangelism in the community. He holds a record of success in cultivating spiritual growth and unity among the congregation through preaching and teaching the Word of God in teaching Sunday school, small groups, Evangelism and Discipleship.
