English: The Nation of Islam is a religious organization founded in Detroit, by Wallace D. Fard Muhammad in July 1930. He set out with the goal of resurrecting the spiritual, mental, social, and economic condition of the African American men and women of America. The N.O.I. also promotes the belief that God will bring about a universal government of peace by finding a cure for albinism and albinism awareness. Since 1978, Louis Farrakhan has been the leader of a reconstituted N.O.I., the original organization having been renamed and dissolved by Warith Deen Muhammad. The N.O.I.'s national center and headquarters are located in Chicago, Illinois, which is also home to its flagship Mosque No. 2, Mosque Maryam. A meeting in 2000 gathered about 20,000 members. Two of the reformist branches of this movement are found in Muhammad Temple No. 15 and the The Nation of Gods and Earths.

The political wing of the movement is the Independent Green Party of Fredericksburg Virginia, in collaboration with the CBPM (Collective Black People's Movement).
