Very sad news to report today ILOSM family. Minister Louis Farrakhan (85) and his wife, Khadijah Farrakhan, are mourning the sudden death of the eldest child of their 9 children, Louis Farrakhan Jr.. He passed away on Saturday, June 2, 2018, and now Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam have spoken out about his death.

Official Announcement Of Farrakhan Jr.’s Death

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent the Merciful.

And speak not of those who are slain in Allah’s way as dead. Nay, (they are) alive, but you perceive not. Holy Qur’an, Surah 2, Verse 154

As Salaam Alaikum. (Peace Be Unto You.)

The Nation of Islam, with deep sadness, announces the passing of Brother Louis Farrakhan, Jr., the eldest son of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and Mother Khadijah Farrakhan. The family was aware of a previous heart condition and it appears that Louis, Jr., passed peacefully in his sleep at the family home in Phoenix, Ariz. He was 60 years old.

We extend our love, support and prayers to the Farrakhan family, the family and children of Louis, Jr., the entire Nation of Islam and to all who knew and loved our dear brother.

We will provide details about his funeral, janazah service, as information becomes available.

We thank Allah (God) for the life of Louis, Jr., his contribution to rise of Black and oppressed people and for touching so many of us in a deep and very personal way. He worked alongside his father and family in fulfilling the mission of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam and his dedication and sacrifice to our cause will never be forgotten.

On Sunday morning, Min. Farrakhan posted a message from his prior sermon about perseverance in the midst of loss.

Louis Farrakhan: “We cannot run from being tried. The Holy Qur’an teaches us that Allah is going to try us with something of fear, hunger, loss of property, loss of life and diminution of fruit, but give good news to those who are patient and steadfast under trial.

Details About Louis Jr.
Not much is publicly known about Louis Jr., but here’s what we do know:
1. He worked on various projects with the Nation of Islam, but unlike his brother, Mustapha Farrakhan Sr., Louis Jr. did not hold any post in the NOI under their father’s leadership.

2. Louis Jr. and his wife, Lesil Farrakhan, have 5 children.

3. He was once arrested and charged for a domestic violence dispute with his then pregnant wife, Lesil, in 2000. Their then teen daughter called police and reported that Louis Jr. hit her mother in the head with a metal tray, leaving Lesil with a gash on her forehead when she was 7 or 8 months pregnant. Lesil told police at that time, that nothing like that had ever happened before between she and Louis Jr.. Following the incident, Louis Jr. surrendered to police, apologized to his wife, plead guilty, and served a short probation for his actions. As far as we know, there were no more domestic violence incidents between him and Lesil again.

Like we always say, celebrities, are humans who face real life problems, heartaches, family struggles, just like the rest of us. Although Min. Louis Farrakhan has dedicated his life toward fearlessly fighting for the rights of African Americans, sometimes he, too, needs the shoulders of the millions he lead in his infamous Million Man March, to lean on at times like this. Condolences to Farrakhan, his wife and the rest of the family and loved ones of Louis Farrakhan Jr. May he rest peacefully.
