Remembering Malcolm X

February 21st, 2006 was the 41st anniversary of the assassination of our brother in faith, Malcolm X (may Allah have mercy on him and bless his soul).

Some quotes of Malcolm from the Offical Web Site of Malcolm X:

  • "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."
  • "A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything."
  • "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."
  • "I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those that do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation."
  • "Without education, you're not going anywhere in this world."
  • "You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom."
  • "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."
