Coalition for the Remembrance of Elijah
CROE Online Munir Muhammad Co-Founder/Business Manager of C.R.O.E. Host of Muhammad & Friends Munir means "radiant, shining with faith". A visit to the mosque in 1972 would change his life forever. The message from the brother at the podium, the uniformly dressed Black men and women conducting themselves in an orderly fashion, and the obvious joy that they had deeply touched him and sparked his interest in the Nation of Islam. His usual investigative side took a back seat; he followed his heart and joined what he believed was peace and contentment, the Nation of Islam (NOI) under the leadership of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Although the Messenger did not speak on that day, the speaker shared the teachings, which were as powerful and life giving then as they are today. He witnessed Black people practicing what they believed. The slogan, "do for self", which many have summarized as the Messenger's teaching was a reality in the lives of the followers. Twenty-nine years later, Munir Muhammad does not regret his hasty decision to join the Nation of Islam. His only regret is that he stumbled after the Messenger's departure. The final test came and the nervous student froze like many others. Munir knew the answer, but like many students, you wait for another who you think is more qualified to answer the question. Unfortunately, no one answered the questions directly. The number of students who knew the answers steadily decreased as they assimilated into society removing their uniforms and changing their names in an effort to ease the pain of the Messenger's departure. A steady attack began against the Messenger with the encouragement of even some former believers. While Munir never denounced the Messenger and his faith remained steadfast, he suffered greatly through his silence. He realized that if he were to recover what he lost after the Messenger's departure, he would have to address the critics directly. More importantly, it became a continuous atonement to the Messenger for failing to remain faithful in upholding his name and accomplishments. One way to understand Munir is to recognize his love affair with a man; the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad, who gave so much and asked for so little in return. His defense is a very small token of his appreciation to the Messenger of Allah. BACK Munir Muhammad

Host of Muhammad and Friends and Founder of C.R.O.E.
On Sunday, February 8th, at 5:30 p.m., people from all walks of life around the country will gather in Chicago to pay homage to the founders of C.R.O.E. Located in the Marquette Park neighborhood on the city's southwest side, C.R.O.E. was founded in 1987 by Munir Muhammad (Business Manager), Shahid Muslim (Director) and Halif Muhammad (Secretary).
A cause that began in the basement of Munir Muhammad's home, as an idea to simply erect a billboard with a photo of Mr. Muhammad with the caption "DO YOU REMEMBER THIS MAN?" Professionals and experts in various fields are probed by host Munir Muhammad to provide analysis and background on topics; such as current health trends, politics, business, education, and other local and global news. The information presented on television by C.R.O.E. has been instrumental in clearing up many of the misrepresentations or false charges leveled at the Honorable Elijah Muhammad since his passing in 1975.
