Like other great religious leaders, W.D. Mohammed, the American Muslim leader who died Tuesday at age 74, showed us how to mature spiritually and more gracefully.

Imam Mohammed, who briefly followed his father, Elijah Muhammad, as leader of the black supremacist Nation of Islam, later rejected the radical and messianic teachings of his father and adopted a more traditional, humble and inclusive Islam.
W.D Mohammed's Islam was quite different from his father's. He was reported to be a quite humble man.

From God we come and to God we return. (What Muslims say when somebody dies.)
