Saviours’ Day, the annual Nation of Islam convention, is returning to Chicago for the first time in physical form since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. With the pandemic putting a halt to the usual weekend of workshops and activities, the focus for 2022 is the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s keynote address, titled “The Swan Song,” which will be delivered at the Nation’s headquarters, Mosque Maryam, on Feb. 27 and streamed live.
Saviours’ Day is a commemoration of the birth of Master W. Fard Muhammad, the great, divine teacher of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad. Master Fard Muhammad came from the holy city of Mecca in fulfillment of divine prophecy with the power to alleviate the suffering of the Black man and woman in the wilderness of North America, to elevate a people who had been destroyed and to obliterate their enemies. He made himself known on July 4, 1930, in Black Bottom, Detroit.
“Without Master Fard Muhammad, we could not have the body of knowledge and that Supreme Wisdom that He shared with us. And we would not have had the Honorable Elijah Muhammad from which was produced giants that the world had never seen before coming out of Black America,” said Student Minister Ishmael Muhammad, National Assistant to the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, to The Final Call.
Master Fard Muhammad fulfills the scriptural prophecy of the coming of the long awaited Messiah of the Christians and the Mahdi of the Muslims, a divine being who ushers in a new world and a kingdom of peace. He was born February 26, 1877, in the Holy City of Mecca with a predetermined mission and purpose to seek and to save the Lost-Found Black man and woman in the West and raise a new nation.
