Can a Nation of Islam member one eat once a day, 2 days or 3 days and do the SRD or other Auditing? This question arises from two posts (one and two) about members of the Nation of Islam facing the choice of maintaining the fast for the month of Ramadan (i.e., fasting every day from dawn to sunset), or being well-fed as required for doing the SRD (Survival Runddown), but presents a different, more general, issue. James Muhmmammad says that, aside from the issue of fasting during Ramadan: "Nayyirah Tivica Muhammad I believe I can support the assertion that well rested well fed is “slang” terminology. The correct language is PROPERLY FED, SUFFICIENTLY RESTED (not tired). I know several believers who eat 1 meal/ 3 days and are on SRD. I am returning to my discipline and also on SRD. My personal findings is that hydration and essential minerals (electrolytes) has been important for metering" https://www.facebook.com/groups/DianeticallySpeaking/permalink/2074704805961859/ The advice from Jame Muhammad is consistent with the instruction given by The Honorable Elijah Muhammad in "How To Eat To Live, Book Two": Code: http://www.finalcall.com/columns/eat_to_live.html "ALLAH TAUGHT ME that one meal a day would keep us here for a long time; we would live over 100 years. And eating one meal every two days would lengthen our lives just that much longer. He told me you would never be sick, eating one meal every three days. The fact that fasting is the cure to 90 percent of our ills is known by the medicine scientists. But, they do not teach you that." The advice from Jame Muhammad is generally consistent with the further instruction given by The Honorable Elijah Muhammad in "How To Eat To Live, Book Two": Code: http://www.finalcall.com/artman/publish/Health_amp_Fitness_11/article_101495.shtml[/COLOR][/FONT][FONT=Trebuchet MS][COLOR=#141414] "Eat one meal a day or one meal every other day, and it will prolong your life. Do not think that you will starve. On the contrary, you will be treating yourself to life, and a life fi lled with sickless days. You can hardly get sick eating this way. I know because I have this experience. If you eat the proper food—which I have given to you from Allah (in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad to Whom be praise forever) in this book—you will hardly ever have a headache.In eating once a day or once every other day, you must not eat between meals. And, you should try to eat at the same hour tomorrow as you eat today. Do not change your meal hours if you can help it. That causes your stomach to react to various hours of the day for a meal, and will set up gas on the stomach. Do not even drink juices, milk, or soft drinks between meals." The question is whether the regimen prescribed by The Honorable Elijah Muhammad for members of the Nation of Islam -- whether one meal a day, one meal every other day, or even one meal every third day -- is consistent with the requirement of being well fed for auditing on the SRD and other processes. Can a member of the Nation of Islam follow the regimen prescribed by The Honorable Elijah Muhammad for members of the Nation of Islam -- whether one meal a day, one meal every other day, or even one meal every third day -- and properly receive auditing on the SRD or other processes? I certainly have an opinion on the issue, but wanted to post to ask people here.
