Elijah Mohammad's son dies
Imam W.D. Mohammad is the guy that converted the Nation of Islam to mainstream Islam, which was out of context.




Imam W.D. Mohammed Dies
The death of perhaps the most influential Muslim leader in American history has been announced in a way that is strangely low-key, even secretive. Warith Deen Mohammed died on Tuesday in Chicago. It was confirmed on the blog of Dawud Walid, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Michigan, according to this obituary in the New York Times. He was 74. Imam Mohammed was the leader of the Muslim American Society, an umbrella organization for black American Muslims that he led out of the Nation of Islam, the black nationalist organization led by his father, Elijah Muhammad, upon his father's death in 1975. It's hard to overestimate his influence among what was then the largest group of Muslims in America. At least three Muslim leaders here in Polk County turned from the Nation of Islam to mainstream Sunni Islam because of Imam Mohammed.

The strange thing is that his death seems surrounded by secrecy. His death was apparently not announced for about 24 hours and a cause of death was not disclosed. Imam Mohammed was a modest man, by all accounts, but his death surely deserved more notice.
