When Elijah Muhammad died of heart failure on February 25, 1975, his son, Wallace D. Muhammad, succeeded him as the new leader of the Nation of Islam (NOI). This conclusion summarizes the dramatic changes in the movement after Elijah's death. These changes are referred to as the “Second Resurrection”. In less than three years, for example, Wallace D. Muhammad aligned NOI with basic Sunni Islamic traditions and instructed his followers to observe the five pillars of Islam. Sister Fatima, a follower of Wallace Muhammad, explained these changes as the result of a divine plan that is meant to bring African Americans to Sunni Islam.
