You do not inhale without His permission,
You do not exhale without His permission,
Even when your lungs stop,
It is His way of bringing you home.
Surely, you are never alone,

Most scholars and historians attempt to understand the Nation of Islam’s doctrine is laughable. Relying on their own worldview and opinions, they haphazardly decide the intentions of WD Fard and Elijah Muhammad, assigning at their own discretion what is fact and what is fiction. Herbert Berg makes attempts in his essays and subsequent book leaving out such statements as “true Islam” or “innovation” when comparing and contrasting the NOI to other expressions of Islam, recognizing that almost all cultures adapt Islam to their native way of life. That ability to adapt Islam was an aid to its early spread. Yet Berg fails in his attempt to understand the relationship between Elijah Muhammad and the Holy Qur’an - a major error considering the Qur’an is the basis of all Islam…the Nation included.
Ultimately, no outsider can truly understand the dynamics of the Nation of Islam. Most insiders can’t. Because inside the organization members have joined for various reasons, identified with different aspects of the doctrine and come from many different socioeconomic backgrounds. There are at least four different types of groups within the organization alone and depending on their background, their outlook on life, their goals and aspirations, they can view the NOI, it’s purpose, and it’s doctrine either similar to their former church, to another movement, to an individual, or similar to the above scholars.
Because of this, the same misunderstandings exist among some members. Coming from a life where education is often shunned, the amount of reading material can be daunting. Some settle for the bare minimum to be considered followers (Student Enrollment, Actual Facts, and General Orders) and skim through the rest supplementing their knowledge of Islam with lectures viewed either via a webcast or live on Wednesday or Sunday. This lack of study makes the follower susceptible to interpretations made by others who they may deem better educated."
