MAY 5, 1986: From the United Arab Emirates, Min. Farrakhan called The Final Call Building to give a special message to Nation of Islam members via conference call over loud speakers. Minister Louis Farrakhan asked the Nation of Islam to observe Ramadan with the Muslim World. He said that fasting strengthens discipline and is a prescription for society.
This reflects the desire of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad that his followers will one day unite with the entire Muslim world. Initially, the Hon. Elijah Muhammad established December as a month of fasting to keep his followers from participating in the frivolity that lakes place that month in the name of Jesus, a holy and righteous man of God.
