Allah, a.k.a. Clarence 13X, (born Clarence Smith) was a former student of Malcolm X and in 1964 founded the Five-Percent Nation of Islam. Clarence 13X broke from The Five-Percent Nation after a theological dispute with the Nation's leaders over the nature and identity of God. Specifically, Clarence 13X denied that the Nation's biracial founder Master W. Fard Muhammad was Allah and instead taught the black man was himself God personified.
