muhammadfamilyThe Intersection: Ramadan, Rituals And Rhymes…APDTA! By Jesse Muhammad
Ramadan, the annual month of fasting and prayer for the Muslim world, started on Friday, the 20th of July and will continue for 30 days until or around Sunday, the 19th of August. Around the world literally billions of people are taking part in the annual spiritual and physical observance. APDTA! (All Praise is Due […]R.I.P. to Dr. King’s Dream (1963-2012)? by Brother Jesse Muhammad
I don’t really think Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would hardly care about a monument being erected in his honor on the Washington Mall. He probably would have rather that money be spent helping the poor. And now an insignificant debate is forcing the statue to undergo alterations, after critics complained that the abbreviated “drum […]Brother Jesse: Common Vs. Drake's Beef Needs A Funeral & A Proper Burial
“Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to pay our last respects to a ‘friend’ that has been dear to many musical artists, fans and readers….that ‘friend’ is HIP-HOP BEEF.” What forward-moving purpose does Hip-Hop beef serve? Can someone please educate me? I was a little thrown aback by the recent beef that spread quickly throughout […]The Lost Principles Of Kwanzaa
All rituals have a principle that is to be extracted and applied, but sometimes the principles get lost, overlooked or outright ignored in the midst of us celebrating our respective “holidays” in the various religious sects. Being overly ritualistic does not make us more enlightened nor will it improve our depleted morality. Plainly: If we’re […]The Good Of Gadhafi, Yes, The Good.
The media has a keen ability in making a good man look wicked and a wicked man look good. Sadly, most of us as American citizens readily embrace what we see and hear on television and on the Internet without doing further investigation. Some of us mock or tease others who jump on the bandwagon […]Troy Davis’ Execution Nears And It’s Time To TAKE ACTION!
This is very disheartening. No, this is sickening. America’s injustice … ahem, justice system has run its course. For the fourth time, the clock is ticking on the life of Georgia death row inmate Troy Anthony Davis. A Chatham County judge recently signed his death warrant and the Georgia Department of Corrections has set his execution by lethal ejection […]Ramadan: Beauty, Blessings And Breaking Bad Habits
The blessed month of Ramadan is expected to begin on or around August 1 and will finish on or around August 29. Muslims are excited! I even know many non-Muslims planning to fast along with us in the spirit of unity. Some will be fasting for the first time and also reading the beautiful Holy Qur’an […]Norway Massacre: When All Else Fails, Blame Muslims (PHOTOS)
It has been greatly disturbing to read about what has taken place in downtown Oslo, Norway and at an offshore youth camp. This is horrible. The bombing is reminding people of the Oklahoma City attack led by the homegrown non-Muslim terrorist Timothy McVeigh. OK, calm down. I know it’s considered illogical to use the words […]A Fatherless Father’s Day Card (PHOTOS)
Father’s Day is upon us … sigh. For the last 32 years, I have watched this annual Father’s Day holiday go by without the presence of my biological father. I remember only drawing cards for other people’s fathers as a gift to them, but not once have I ever known what it felt like to […]James Byrd: 12yrs Later We’re Still Being Dragged?
I was just 19 years old when it happened but by that time I understood the racial dynamics of the United States. June 7 marked the 12th anniversary of the dragging murder of James Byrd, Jr., in Jasper, Texas. On June 7, 1998, three White males wrapped a heavy chain around his ankles, connected the […]Farrakhan guides spiritual leaders

(Note: I dedicate this to Dr. Henry Louis Gates)—@BrotherJesse Op-Ed By Abdul Arif Muhammad, Esq.In an April 23, 2010 Op-Ed piece for The New York Times entitled “Ending the Slavery Blame-Game,” Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. argues that a moral, historic, political and economic equivalency exists between the culpability and responsibility of some Africans who participated […]CloseSign up for our newsletter and never miss the hot storiesThank you for subscribing to Global Grind!
