El-Hajj Malik as-Shabazz

Brother Malcolm

Malcolm X. org

Ossie Davis' eulogy


"Without education, you're not going anywhere in this world."

"I am not a racist. I am against every form of racism and segregation, every form of discrimination. I believe in human beings, and that all human beings should be respected as such, regardless of their color."

"I for one believe that if you give people a thorough understanding of what confronts them and the basic causes that produce it, they'll create their own program, and when the people create a program, you get action."

"Don't be in a hurry to condemn because he doesn't do what you do or think as you think or as fast. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today."

"There is no better than adversity. Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance next time."

We miss you, Brother Malcolm, but we know that God's mercy is with you and your wife. May you both dream of Jennah and rest in peace.

Insha'Allah we will never forget our dear brother, and perhaps some day his dream will be realised. For his unflinching idealism, brave soul, unlimited love for his people, and his sacrifices for true justice, we pray that his position in Paradise is elevated by Allah. Amin.
