Born on November 21, 1974, Brother Nuri Muhammad joined the Nation of Islam in 1992 at seventeen years of age. At the age of 21, Brother Nuri became the Minister of Mosque #74. Since his appointment Mosque 74 has quadrupled its membership, purchased and renovated a state of the art facility (affectionately called the “Miracle on 38th Street”) which houses the new Mosque, Muhammad University of Islam, Bismillah Childcare Ministry and Learning Academy, Eat To Live Café and Studio 74 Barber and Beauty Salon.
Brother Nuri is known for his powerful messages full of inspirational information that can be practically applied. He is recognized as one with a gift to collaborate scripture and science in a “user friendly way.” His gift has given him a magnetic appeal, from the “streets to the suites” and a special affinity with the youth. He inspires and mobilizes all over the country, speaking in high schools, colleges, prisons, churches, mosques and community centers. His work of helping The Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan, inspired his teacher to give him the name ‘Nuri’ which comes from the attribute of Allah(God) Al-Nur, meaning “The Light.” He indeed has been a source of light for those who have listened to him.
Brother Nuri cherishes the union with his beautiful wife since the 5th day of July in 1994. She is a great help and support in The Mission. They are the proud parents of two daughters and one son.
