Excitement and anticipation are in the air because Saviours’ Day 2023 is just around the corner. The Nation of Islam convention is known as “The Crowning Event of Black History Month” and is taking place in Chicago from February 24-26. Members of the Nation of Islam, visitors, guests and supporters are eager to participate in a full weekend of activities and hear and see the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. The Minister is set to deliver his keynote message titled, “The War of Armageddon Has Begun.”
Saviours’ Day is a commemoration of the birth anniversary of Master Fard Muhammad, Allah (God) in Person born on February 26, 1877, in the Holy City of Mecca. Master Fard Muhammad traveled 9,000 miles to North America, where He found the downtrodden Black man and woman. He raised and taught the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, who convened the first Saviours’ Day convention. The tradition of Saviours’ Day has been carried on through the work of Minister Farrakhan.
This year’s Saviours’ Day convention is the first full in-person convention since February 2020, before the pandemic shut the world down. Informative and critical plenary sessions and other activities will take place at McCormick Place Convention Center and Minister Farrakhan’s keynote address will take place at Wintrust Arena.
The Nation of Islam Executive Council and National Laborers have been working nonstop to make Saviours’ Day 2023 “the best Saviours’ Day ever.” The theme for this year’s convention is taken from the book of Ephesians 6:11 which states in part: “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
Every presentation that will take place during the convention is to arm the believer with the impenetrable armor of God, that they can make it through the final chapter of the end of the world of Satan, Student Minister Ishmael Muhammad, National Assistant to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, told The Final Call in a previous interview.
