Houston, Texas—Members of the Nation of Islam from throughout the Southwest Region and the country convened at Muhammad Mosque No. 45 for a Spiritual Bootcamp focused on the cornerstone Point No. 12 of What the Muslims Believe found in the Muslim Program that bears the inside back page of every edition of the Final Call.

“Fellow students, we have not gathered here to engage in a foolish display of vanity and ego”, said Student Minister Robert Muhammad, who was inspired to host the event and gained the support of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan to do so.

“Rather, we have gathered in a serious effort to show and prove the truth of Point No. 12”, said Bro. Robert to the attendees on June 6. “To assist us in our purpose and objectives, we have assembled a dynamic group.”

Point No. 12 of the Muslim Program states “WE BELIEVE that Allah (God) appeared in the Person of Master W. Fard Muhammad, July, 1930; the long-awaited "Messiah" of the Christians and the "Mahdi" of the Muslims. We believe further and lastly that Allah is God and besides HIM there is no god and He will bring about a universal government of peace wherein we all can live in peace together. “

This belief by the members of the Nation of Islam has been challenged, debated, and dissected by religious scholars throughout the world and each bootcamp presenter showed with conviction why it cannot be disproved.

Presenters included Brother Demetric Muhammad (Memphis), Student Minister Anthony Muhammad (Memphis), Dr. Wesley Muhammad (Truth of God Institute) and Student Minister Donna Farrakhan, daughter of Minister Farrakhan.
