About this title

Synopsis:

Almost four decades after his death Elijah Muhammad (1897-1975) remains by far the most influential African American Muslim. Leader of the Nation of Islam movement for over thirty years and a mentor to Malcolm X, Muhammad was responsible for introducing hundreds of thousands of African Americans to Islam. Known to his followers as the 'Messenger of Allah', Muhammad was also a controversial figure, dividing Muslims over the racially based doctrines, practices, and politics of the religion he espoused.
In this fascinating biography Herbert Berg assesses the impact of Muhammad's unique and intriguing perspective on Islam, and seeks to understand why he formulated it. Careful to consider Muhammad's career within the context of the significant racial tensions of his time, this volume investigates a figure whose formulation of Islam, however divisive, forced Muslims and scholars alike to evaluate their often normative definitions of this religious tradition. An ideal resource for the expert or the simply intrigued, this account delves deep into the life and faith of the man who almost single-handedly established a foothold for Islam in the United States.
