1 There is no way for us to learn the right way to eat in order
to live a long life, except through the guidance and teachings of
Allah. Who came in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad.
2 The Bible says that He will give us more life abundantly, but He demands strict obedience to
His Will. There is no way of prolonging the life of human beings or any other life unless it begins
with restrictions of the foods which sustain life, the right kinds of food and the proper time when it
should be taken into our bodies.
3 Jehovah taught Israel how to live, but Israel rebelled against the law of Jehovah, handed
down to them through Moses, the servant of Jehovah.
4 There are many Jews today, called Orthodox Jews, who try to eat in order to live. They are
careful of the type of food that goes into their stomachs. They will not slaughter an animal without
trying to drain that animal's blood out of its body before taking it for food. They will not accept
diseased animals, birds or fowls.
5 We give credit to the Jews for still trying to obey that which they were ordered to do by Allah,
through the prophets that Allah sent to them. The Jews paid the penalty for disobedience, and are
still paying. However, they are the only people, the Holy Qur'an teaches, whose food we can eat.
They, in turn, can eat our food. The Muslims who try to live according to the teachings of the Holy
Qur'an will not eat the wrong food when they know what that food is.
6 Of course, those who are becoming converts to Islam in America, my followers, are being
tried. The Christians, white and black, try to force or deceive my followers into eating foods they
know we the Muslims do not approve.
7 In prison, they almost starve my followers trying to force them to eat the filthy, poisonous
swine flesh. This I know, because when I was in prison they did the same to me.
8 Thanks to the coming of Allah in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, if we obey what He
has given to us in the way of proper foods and the proper time to partake of these foods, we will
never be sick or have to pay hundreds, thousands and millions of dollars for doctor bills and
9 The Christian people have one of the most brutal ways of killing animals for their food. Many
of their animals are killed under fright and excitement; they actually murder the animals they eat.
10 We, the Muslims, who have not been able to go out to the slaughter houses as yet to choose
our meat, as the Orthodox Jews are doing, slaughter our animals or cattle at a time when they
least expect it. We take their lives in the name of Allah, with a prayer over this condemned life to
be used to sustain our lives.
11 Allah has taught me how to eat in order to live. I have been teaching it to my followers, but
we often become negligent and fall victim to our own negligence. As a result, we are calling the
doctor, or going to the hospital because we did not eat the right foods, and in the proper way.
12 Hereafter. I shall enforce restriction on my followers to eat as Allah bids us. As I have said
to my followers on many occasions, life cannot be prolonged unless we are careful of what we eat
and when we eat.
13 The foolish idea of eating three or four times a day and all between meals is
like the poisonous swine who never has any regular eating habit. Even a dog will
not eat when he is full most of the time. The hog, however, swallows as long as
he can, and then regrets that he can't keep swallowing. He will crawl into his
food and wait until he can swallow some more. He is so greedy he won't leave
