In 1991, Farrakhan was diagnosed with prostate cancer and received hormone therapy. When cancer recurred in 1994, he received brachytherapy seed implants. In 1999, due to the complications of another cancer recurrence, he received emergency surgery. In 2006, Louis announced that he had a stomach ulcer and had lost 35 pounds due to various infections. He stayed in the hospital for 5 weeks and underwent abdominal surgery to repair the damage caused by brachytherapy seed implants. In October 2013, Farrakhan suffered a heart attack and had stent implants.
Louis Farrakhan is an American religious leader and political activist, leading the Nation Of Islam (NOI). In the 1950s, Louis began touring the United States as a singer, calling himself The Charmer and Calypso Gene and recorded several calypsos. In 1955, he became aware of the Nation of Islam through his friend Rodney Smith and was invited to a concert. The group called for Elijah Muhammad’s Savior’s Day Address. In July of the same year, Louis became a member of NOI (also known as “registered Muslim/registered believer/registered worker”) and was called Louis X until he obtained his Islamic name, Farrakhan. The following summer, after Muhammad forced all musicians in the band to choose between NOI and music, Louis gave up his long-held passion. Farrakhan became a member of the Islamic Temple in Boston and was quickly appointed as the Deputy Minister of Malcolm X. After Malcolm X was transferred to the Temple in New York, Farrakhan became the Minister to the Temple. After the assassination of Malcolm X in 1965, Louis was promoted to some of his early positions and became minister of the influential Harlem Mosque (serving until 1975), as well as national and NOI spokesperson.
Mohammad died in 1975 and his son Warith Deen Mohammad became the new leader of the Nation Of Islam, bringing the organization closer to Orthodox Islam, and renamed it the NOI World Islamic Community of the West, and then the American Muslim Association. Farrakhan joined the movement and briefly became a Sunni imam, Muhammad began to call him Abdul Haleem. In 1978, Louis left the American Muslim Association and decided to restore the original NOI. Farrakhan’s new group held a convention on Savior’s Day in 1982 and earned a reputation for itself. In October 1995, Louis organized and directed the Million People Parade in Washington, DC, attracting approximately 440,000 people to attend and deliver speeches from Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou, Jesse Jackson, and other outstanding African Americans.
For health reasons, he reduced his responsibilities to NOI in 2007. However, Farrakhan continued to preach and perform at NOI events. In 2015, he co-hosted the 20th anniversary of Million Man March: Justice or Else.
Critics describe Farrakhan’s beliefs as Anti-Semitic and racist. The Southern Poverty Law Center classified Nation Of Islam as a hate group. Louis said that whites are a “demon race” and they deserve to die. Nathan Perlmutter, chairman of the Anti-Defamation League, called Farrakhan “Black Hitler“, and Louis later said, “Hitler was a great man“. In 2019, Farrakhan was banned from Facebook for life for publishing anti-Semitic remarks on social networks. Malcolm X’s family accused Louis of participating in his murder; Farrakhan stated that he did not order the killing but admitted that he “created the atmosphere that ultimately led to Malcolm X’s murder”.
In the 1970s, Egyptian architect M. Momen designed 5 houses for Elijah Muhammad in Chicago’s Woodland community. Farrakhan now owns one of the houses, a mansion that is alleged to have 21 rooms.

In 1946, Farrakhan was one of the first black pioneers to appear on the Теd Масk Оrіgіnаl Аmаtеur Ноur. Participating in the lucky draw will give out prizes. Being an excellent musician, one of his songs has entered the top 100 Billboard Chart for 5 years.
In addition to Farrakhan’s honor and achievements, his outstanding leadership skills are above all his attraction. The first moment of his activities was his recited verbatim of 10 Q/A of the NOI student enrollment.
