In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful, the one, the true and the living God, the Lord of all of the world, the creator of all living things, the sustainer, the nourisher of that which he has created. In the name of his messengers and servants which include Moses, Jesus and Mohammed and in the name of every righteous man and woman who has ever lived or who is living today, in the name of our foreparents who were kidnapped and made slaves and whose unmourned and unburied corpses lined the floor of the Atlantic Ocean, I would like to offer to you, the students and faculty here at the Yale University Law School the Nation of Islam's greetings of peace in the Arabic language: "Asalaamu-Alaikum."
