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.

About the Author:

Herbert Berg is Professor in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington. He is the editor of Methods and Theories in the Study of Islamic Origins and author of The Development of Exegesis in Early Islam.

Review:

"Offers an insightful and well-informed discussion of the theological underpinnings of the Nation of Islam. Berg’s sensitivity regarding the complexities of Elijah Muhammad’s thinking, as well as the evolving doctrinal ethos of his movement, offers a cautionary tale for those who would reduce this American phenomenon to the sum of its constituent personalities and public pronouncements."
-Claude Clegg,Indiana University



"A well-written book on the life and legacy of Elijah Muhammad...this book is highly recommended and a welcomed addition to the growing literature on the Nation of Islam and he central role of Elijah Muhammad in its leadership and history."-Studies in Religion

"Reveals the religious legacy of an irreplaceable Muslim American leader. This well-written historical, theoretical, and scriptural analysis puts Elijah Muhammad's thought at the center of debates about what it means to be Muslim. Berg rescues Elijah Muhammad from the Islamic studies ghetto, or better, puts a little ghetto into Islamic studies."
-—Edward E. Curtis IV,author of Black Muslim Religion in the Nation of Islam, 1960-1975



“Berg has written an excellent study on the influence and legacy of Elijah Muhammad, who led the Nation of Islam from 1934 to 1975. Highly recommended.”
