MILWAUKEE—(FinalCall.com)All roads led to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for the Nation of Islam’s 27th annual National Training Conference where the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan delivered an insightful, poignant and spiritual message to martial arts practitioners of all ages and pointed out in his remarks that those with years of experience did not develop into a “master” until they surrendered and submitted to Allah (God), the Ultimate Master, and were willing to take instructions.
Dressed in green and wearing dark shades, the Minister made his presence known during a series of martial arts and self-defense demonstrations performed by attendees. He shared his beautiful and heartfelt words afterward.
“I am so moved by what I experienced being with you. Sometimes when you work hard to bring about change in your time of life, it’s so rewarding when you can come among your people and see the effect of knowledge being imparted to us,” he said. “I want to thank grandmaster (Abdul Azziz Muhammad) and all the grandmasters, male and female, that are here.
And I want to thank you for demonstrating the greatness of your skill, but the most moving thing to me is that you didn’t keep your skill to yourself. And that is what makes you favored by Allah (God), because you discovered your gift. And in discovering your gift, you discovered your reason for being, your purpose for being on this earth at this time,” said Min. Farrakhan.
