The Work of W. Deen Mohammed: Impact & Implication

Purchase Type
  • On September 9, 2008, Imam Warith Deen Mohammed passed from this life into the next and many in the American Islamic community quickly eulogized his legacy as that of forging the largest conversion of people to the path of Islam in American history; guiding hundreds of thousands, perhaps over a million African American members of the national group called the Nation of Islam (NOI) to follow the guidance of the Qur’an and the life example of Prophet Muhammad (peace and prayers be upon him).

    While the conversion of the great majority of the members of the NOI to mainstream Islamic knowledge and practice is itself an achievement worthy of etching Imam W. Deen Mohammed’s name in world Islamic and American Islamic history, the impacts and implications of his greatest contributions to Islamic, Muslim American, and African American life and history have yet to be seen.

    This book attempts to give the reader a broadly scoped sense of the impact of the work of Imam Mohammed on the lives of people in the American landscape and a deeper understanding and appreciation of the implications that Imam Mohammed’s blessed intellectual work will have on Islamic life in the not too distant future.
