THE FOLLOWING is the Original Rules of Instruction to the Laborers of Islam and the TITLE OF MUSLIM Given by OUR SAVIOUR before HIS Departure, With a Footnote of a few words of Explanation to lay Pressure Upon their Minds of their many Errors in the Past and Present, that they may see the Light and Walk therein. I Thank You. --Elijah Muhammad
INSTRUCTIONS GIVEN TO THE LABORERS
OUR SAVIOUR, W.D. FARD MUHAMMAD
The student must study his Assignment--Lesson #1. Each Student should copy the Answers of Lesson of Minister, Elijah Muhammad, and study until the Student is able to memorize, By Heart, all Answers to, of said, Lesson #1.
NOTE: Here, Lesson #1 is said to be the Student's Assignment-"First."
LESSON #1 lays the Base of our Work today; and gives the Student a Clear Knowledge of Himself and His Heavenly Home, the Best Part of the Earth; and who is the enemy to him and his Nation; and why the enemy and Righteous could not live together; and why was the Righteous able to Cast Out his enemy. This teaches the student what he must do with the enemy of the Righteous today. THE Righteous Nation is, now, Living in every part of the planet Earth. Therefore the enemy must, now, be removed in every part of the planet Earth.
Why is Stress made to the Muslims to Copy, the Minister, Elijah Muhammad's Answers?
The past History shows that the ALMIGHTY ALLAH sends Prophets and Apostles for the people's Guide and Example, and through them HIS Mystery was Revealed. And those who follow the Apostle would see the Light.
Each Student must qualify his or herself for Positions awaiting them. Assignment of Office will be made immediately after Examination, and on Completion of his or her Labor Course. Consideration for the Laborers of Islam will be taken, and Analysis, in the near future by ALLAH!
NOTE: THIS PARAGRAPH puts a stop to all Quarreling and Arguments among the Laborers over their Offices in ISLAM until he or she have been qualified and their qualification Examined to see if they are Fit to be used in the Respective Position. THE past History shows that the First Examination of Laborers is made by the Apostle, whom the Laborers are to work with.
According to the Holy Qur'an 59:7, the Muslims were very poor when they first started to Teach ISLAM and all contribution was given to ALLAH's Apostle for him and his Family's Support. And what the Apostle could spare, he gave to help take care of the Poor Muslims that were unable to help themselves and the other part was given to those who were confined to the Labor of ISLAM.
And soon, there arose an argument among the Hypocrites about the use of the money because they thought that they should share equally with the Apostle. Then ALLAH cast these Hypocrites out and punished them for the false accusation that they had spread against the Prophet, that he was seeking to enrich himself and acting unjustly to the poor and needy. And, then ALLAH, told the other Laborers that HE would soon enrich all of them but, at present, every effort should be to maintain the Prophet and his household.
The enemy, then, tried to stop every Muslim from helping the Apostle and said he should be killed. Then ALLAH Challenged the enemy to do so - to leave not a stone unturned in trying. This is in the 34 Problems that you have, if you understand. So this is what is meant by ALLAH taking, under Analysis, the Consideration of the Laborers in the near future. The student could practice his or her Labor while under study if they were sincere, and Submit themselves to Obey and Follow the Apostle. And it is written that all who Rebelled against the Apostle, ALLAH made it impossible for them to live in Peace until they would Submit.
The Holy Qur'an does not contradict a Muslim to Swear his Allegiance to his Brother so long as he does not break his Allegiance - nor does the Bible in this case.
The Laborers must Speak and Use grammatic pronunciation of words and syllables in Past, Future, Present and Perfect Tense. the Laborer's answers to All Lessons must be in the above Language. Others will not be considered.
Note: The Dumb must speak Plainly. The Stammering Tongue is Speaking Clear. (He covers the Prophecies of the Bible and, also, the Holy Qur'an in a word).
NO man can be Successful in Teaching a People that cannot speak, Clearly, the People's Language.
But there is more to be understood in the words. That the Laborers' Pronunciation of words and syllables must be in the Past, Future and Present Perfect Tense - Otherwise will not be considered.
What is meant by the Laborers' answers to all LESSONS in the Past, Present and Future being PERFECT is that we must know and be Able to Prove, at all times, to the New Converts that the LESSONS that OUR SAVIOUR (ALLAH) gave us to Study and Learn is the Fulfillment of the Prophecies of All the Former Prophets concerning the Beginning of the Devils, and the Ending if the Civilization, and of our Enslavement by the Devils, and Present Time of our Delivery from the Devils by OUR SAVIOUR (ALLAH). PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME! There is No God but ALLAH. How that ALLAH would separate us from the Devils and, then destroy them; and Change us into a New and Perfect People; and Fill the Earth with FREEDOM, JUSTICE and EQUALITY as it was filled with wickedness; and Making we, the Poor Lost-Founds, the Perfect RULERS. Therefore if we have not this Understanding, we are Yet Blind to HIM that has come to SAVE us. For this is OUR SAVIOUR'S Desire - that we should Know HIM as OUR GOD AND Saviour, and that Besides HIM there is NO SAVIOUR for us.
Why should the Lost-Founds Disbelieve and Dispute with one another about OUR SAVIOUR (ALLAH) and HIS Work of Delivering? Cannot a Fool see that a Mighty Change is in Progress in every Living Creature?
The Laborers must practice the above Language with all new Converts. The Laborers are liable to punishment if found using Baby Language at any time. The Laborers must greet a Registered Muslim in his own way.
Mistakes shall not exist among the Laborers of Islam at NO time.
The MINISTERS' CLASS must study and prepare themselves for Examination as soon as they are able to.
Everyone's FINAL EXAMINATION will be before ALLAH (OUR SAVIOUR), which will include all of the Forms of Lessons, #1's Answers, and all the Problems, and a General Review of the three and one-half years of Labor.
Absence in the Ministers' Class must always be investigated.
Each Muslim should know all of this By Heart. It is all his and her own.
The Time is ripe for us to Re-claim our own, which is knowledge, understanding and a high civilization. We all are equipped physically and mentally to accomplish the said, above, with little study - young, old, men, women and children.
The M.G.T. & G.C.C. should study along with the Training. Report their progress along with the rest.
The TEMPLE READING CLASS: The Reading Class shall include all of the History. Report the Reading Class along with the regular School Report. The Secretary must report once a week of the Educational Department and a general report of the Temple.

Names of Devils are not counted of any value in the Fruit of Islam. Devils must stay away.
The RESTRICTIVE LAW OF ISLAM is our Success at any time.
Any one who fails to be ONE HUNDRED PERCENT to the LAW shall be dismissed from his or her Post.
Brothers and Sisters, you all get busy and help to Arise the dead Nation, and place them on top of civilization. My dearest Desire is to give everyone his or her own.
I do not want importance among the Officials nor the Laborers.
Do not do other than yourself.
Do not take on Mixed Instructions other than OUR ASSIGNMENT.
The M.G.T. & G.C.C.: I can sit on top of the world and tell everyone that the most beautiful Nation is in the wilderness of North America. But do not let me catch any sister other than herself in regards to living the Life and weighing properly.
Big fields are awaiting for the wide Awake man to work out. Arise the Dead by the thousands! The dead Nation must arise - for the Time is at hand.
Look in your Poison Book. Work cheerfully and fear not! You are the Righteous, the Best and the Powerful.
PROBLEM NO. 13
After learning Mathematics, which is Islam, and Islam is Mathematics, it stands true. You can always prove it at no limit of time. Then you must learn to use it and secure some benefit while you are living, that is - luxury, money, good homes, friendship in all walks of life.
Sit yourself in Heaven at once! That is the greatest Desire of your Brother and Teachers.
Now you must speak the Language so you can use your Mathematical Theology in the proper Term -- otherwise you will not be successful unless you do speak well, for She knows all about you.
The Secretary of Islam offers a reward to the best and neatest worker of this Problem.
There are twenty-six letters in the Language, and if a Student learns one letter per day, then how long will it take him to learn the twenty-six letters?
There are ten numbers in the Mathematical Language. Then how long will it take a Student to learn the whole ten numbers (at the above rate)? The average man speaks four hundred words - considered well.
