Ishmael Muhammad

Ishmael Muhammad is an American Nation of Islam member. He is the Nation of Islam national assistant minister to Louis Farrakhan. Of Elijah Muhammad’s 21 children, he is the eldest son of his mother Tynetta Muhammad[1] He is the Student Minister at Mosque Maryam, the headquarters of the Nation of Islam.[2] Muhammad is also a Council Member and "is sometimes considered the most likely successor" to Louis Farrakhan.[3] Muhammad was most recently featured on the Nation of Islam's national stage at the 2013 Holy Day of Atonement event on October 20, at which Muhammad delivered the keynote address in place of Louis Farrakhan who was unable to attend due to illness. Farrakhan's selection of Muhammad to speak in his absence may shed light on the future direction of the group's leadership.[4]
