Removal of All Images That Attempt To Portray Divine IMAGERY AND COLOR SYMBOLISM Imam W. Deen Mohammed has written about religious imagery and about the use of symbols. In a 1975 article, he explored the profound latent effects of images in religion. In 1976 the Bilalian News (later known as Muslim Journal) began carrying an article by him on the effects of racial imagery in religion "A Message of Concern." In 1977 Imam Mohammed began teaching "The meaning of colors in Scripture and the Natural Powers of Black and White". He described and explained ancient scriptural symbolism and its effect on modern day scriptural and religious interpretation. He also elaborated on how colors in scripture have triggered racist influences in religious societies. He formed the Committee For The Removal of All Images That Attempt to Portray The Divine (C.R.A.I.D.).

Imam W. Deen Mohammed was unanimously elected as leader of his community after the passing of his father in 1975; the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, founder, leader, and builder of the Nation of Islam. Imam Mohammed's astute leadership, profound social commentary on major issues, piercing scriptural insight into the Torah, Bible and Qur'an, and his unique ability to apply scriptural interpretation to social issues have brought him numerous awards and high honors. He is a man of vision who has performed many historical ‘firsts’. In 1992, he delivered the first invocation in the U.S. senate to be given by a Muslim. In 1993 he gave an Islamic prayer at President William Jefferson Clinton's first inaugural interfaith prayer service, and again in 1997 at President Clinton's second inaugural interfaith prayer service. His strong interest in interfaith dialogue led him to address the Muslim-Jewish conference on March 6, 1995, with leaders of Islam and reform Judaism in Glencoe, IL. In October of 1996, Imam Mohammed met Pope John Paul, II, at the Vatican, at the invitation of Archbishop William Cardinal Keeler and the Focolare Movement. He met with the Pope again, on October 28, 1999, on the “Eve of the New Millennium” in St. Peter’s basilica with many other world-religious leaders. In 1997, the Focolare Movement presented him with the “Luminosa Award”, for promoting interfaith dialogue, peace, and understanding in the U.S. In 1999, Imam Mohammed served on the advisory panel for Religious Freedom Abroad, formed by Secretary of State Madeline Albright. He assisted in promoting religious freedom in the United States and abroad. In April, 2005, Imam Mohammed participated in a program that featured, “a conversation with Imam W. Deen Mohammed and Cardinal George of the Catholic Archdiocese." There are many more accolades, achievements and accomplishments made by Imam W. Deen Mohammed. His honorary Doctorates, Mayoral, and Gubernatorial Proclamations give testament to his recognized voice, and the benefit of his leadership to Muslims and non-Muslims alike. He was appointed to the World Supreme Council of Mosques because of the value of his work and leadership in America. Today, the dignity and world recognition Imam Mohammed has generated is seen all across the world.
