Salvation does not depend upon one’s connection with any group but on one’s right beliefs and good deeds. Whoever goes before Allah with these provisions will find his reward with Him, for the judgement of Allah will be based on one’s real worth.
GOD in the Arabic language is Allah (The GOD), in the Arabic script it is spelled أللهُ .
I am a Muslim, (Sunnah) following the example of the Prophet Muhammad (upon him be blessings and peace from GOD) just as Islam is practiced universally (throughout the world). “I am not, nor have I ever been a member of the Nation of Islam;” (i.e., followers of Elijah Mohammad and connected groups). https://livingislam101.com/islam-essential-beliefs/ What they did as a collective group (the Nation of Islam) is something I benefited from, just as other African American’s. But because I am a Muslim does not subjugate me too them no more than to some Arab.
I have been worshipping Allah (GOD), making salat (sujood/prostration) for over forty years. All power belongs to Allah. If we look to GOD, to promote GOD consciousness, worship of GOD as our ‘salvation,’ the life that He wants for “all mankind,” worship Him alone without no associate, then all will have a clearer understanding of their ‘human’ relationship to Allah (GOD), affording to all the opportunity to progress as individuals ‘within the collective,’ based on the word of GOD and His Messenger صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ سَلَّمُ. Here, we have Sunnah, Shi’a; (and their differences), as well as people of other Faiths, Jews, Christians, etc. whom we should not expect to conform to what someone else believes particularly when the historical evidence clearly shows the Nation of Islam grappling with the most basic and fundamental aspects of Islam and accepting them into their lives as Muslims all over the world. I am a witness to this, for over forty years. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship, prayers but Allah; and Muhammad is His messenger.
