    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.

    The Bible on Business. A Practical, Relevant, Guide to Business Success.

    in Finance

    The Bible has a lot to say about business, money, leadership, and success.  I realized this when I was open to realizing it. It took the recession and subsequent losses to realize that I had the answers all along, in fact, I had read the answers before the problems existed and had the tools and strategies to avoid many of the heartaches, if only...


    I was an active and practicing Christian before the recession.  The Lord blessed our family with financial prosperity back then. As President Obama defines rich - anyone making $250K or more, we were pretty darned close.  Profitability was so normal for us, that the idea of one day being broke never entered our minds, nor our way of life.


    Despite how much we earned, there was very little saved.  We racked up credit card debt because paying those cards were never a struggle.  Life was good.  Then the recession hit.


    After we bought my husband a brand new $47K truck, we were about to buy me a new vehicle too and something made me postpone that purchase.  I had already noticed our monthly income slipping from the $20K+ average into lower numbers and figured I would wait till things picked up a bit. They never did.  Our young construction company in Florida, slipped into the abyss of the real estate bubble never to recover.


    Thankfully, one year prior, I had taken a Christian Finance workshop and changed our spending habits.  One year of biblical finance kept us from total destruction. 


    I turned to the Word of God for help, consolation and guidance, and God showed me that the Bible was indeed a practical, relevant guide to success.  I had the answers all along.  We simply ignored them, and our end result was a merciful version of what we truly deserved.  I share some of my findings with you in my book, The Bible on Business.

    Chew the Phat Kewl Khat: Peter Ferrara From Forbes On Welfare Reform!

    in Politics

    Can welfare reform end poverty in America? Peter Ferrara believes it can. Peter is a great article writer and a great contributer to Forbes! Peter has writen numerous articles about many different subjets of interest. Do not be surprised if he wakes you up to what welfare reform will mean to our country as a whole. Come listen to Peter Ferrara speak and answer questions that anyone may have about how our government spends over a trillion dollars a year on welfare! Call in and share your two cents on this issue. Call in at 1-347-677-1837.


    The passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) in 1996 changed the way the federal government finances cash welfare to low-income families. Instead of a matching grant, states receive a set amount of federal funds in the form of a block grant with no adjustments for inflation, caseload numbers, or state spending. Social assistance programs, however, tend to experience increased demand in recessions – more people require assistance from the government during difficult economic times. To meet increased demand, states have to increase spending, but recessions usually bring lower revenues to states, requiring some cuts to discretionary spending. Analysts were concerned that PRWORA’s change to a block grant would jeopardize social spending during times of state fiscal stress and cause states to disproportionately cut welfare spending during recession.
