An organization formed in the United States in the 1930s by Elijah Poole (later known as Elijah Muhammad), which gained prominence during the nascent civil-rights movement in the 1950s. In its efforts to uplift and provide self-worth to African-Americans, the nationalist organization espoused a doctrine of black superiority, and posited that God manifested Himself as a human being by the name of W.D. Fard, Elijah Muhammad's instructor. Such doctrines and teachings of the Nation are incompatible with the universal outlook and absolute monotheism of Islam. Unfortunately, much confusion has resulted and continues to exist due to this group's appropriation of certain Arabic terms, values, and ideas from mainstream Islam. Followers of the Nation, often incorrectly called "Black Muslims" number less than 10,000 today. Many thousands of former members entered the fold of universal Islam after the death of Elijah Muhammad in 1975 under the leadership of his son Warith Deen Muhammad. (c.i.e)
