Elijah Muhammad is arguably the most significant figure in the history of Islam in the United States. Successor to W. D. Fard, the founder of the Nation of Islam, and a mentor to Malcolm X, Elijah Muhammad led the Nation of Islam for over forty years. In Elijah Muhammad and Islam, Herbert Berg focuses on Elijah Muhammad's religiosity, which is frequently brought into question as the authenticity of the Nation of Islam as "truly Islamic" remains hotly debated. To better comprehend this powerful and controversial figure, Berg contextualizes Elijah Muhammad and his religious approach within the larger Islamic tradition, exploring his use of the Qur’an, his interpretation of Islam, and his relationships with other Muslims. Above all, Berg seeks to understand—not define or label—Muhammad as a Muslim. To do otherwise, he argues, is to misunderstand and distort the man, his teachings, his movement, and his legacy.

'Sport' and 'religion' are cultural institutions with a global reach. Each is characterised by ritualised performance and by the ecstatic devotion of its followers, whether in the sports arena or the cathedral of worship. This fascinating collection is the first to examine, in detail, the relationship between these two cultural institutions from an international, religiously pluralistic perspective. It illuminates the role of sport and religion in the social formation of collective groups, and explores how sport might operate in the service of a religious community. The book offers a series of cutting-edge contemporary historical case-studies, wide-ranging in their social and religious contexts. It presents important new work on the following fascinating topics: * sport and Catholicism in Northern Ireland * Shinto and sumo in Japan * women, sport and the American Jewish identity * religion, race and rugby in South Africa * sport and Islam in France and North Africa * sport and Christian fundamentalism in the US * Muhammad Ali and the Nation of Islam. With God on their Side is vital reading for all students of the history, sociology and culture of sport. It also presents important new research material that will be of interest to religious studies students, historians and anthropologists.

It is widely stated euphemistically that the Nation of Islam had changed directions on several occasions. I used the adjective "euphemistically," because it brushes over the severity of the action and consequences. Innovation, improvement, etc... is part of change and advancement; however, it must maintain a consistent grounding in its foundation and fundamental principles of definition. If its base is violated and made to appear negotiable or susceptible to change, then ambiguity, vagueness, uncertainty, haziness, and doubt become the order of the day. Under this cloud of indistinctness what some thought was not possible, became the norm. The book, They Thought They Were Followers of Elijah Muhammad...But Then It Was Too Late, tells the story.

In His book, " MESSAGE TO THE BLACKMAN IN AMERICA," The Honorable Elijah Muhammad gave us scriptures from both Bible and Holy Qur'an to study. What I have set out to accomplish in this book, is to make the study of these scriptures simple by researching all of them and bringing it all together in one book.
