WHY: Thousands participated in Saviours’ Day, an annual celebration that honors the birth of Master Fard Muhammad, founder of the Nation of Islam, and the Great Mahdi of the Muslims. Saviours’ Day included sessions designed to uplift, inspire and facilitate positive change and justice for Black America and in the broader society. Born Feb. 26, 1877 in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, Master Fard Muhammad first visited Detroit in 1930. He established the first Muhammad Mosque in North America and commissioned the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, patriarch of the Nation, to raise a suffering people—Black people in America. Saviours’ Day included workshops on education, economic development, housing and other subjects, concerts, a military drill competition, First Lady Mother Khadijah Farrakhan’s fun-filled and educational Children’s Village.
