Today marks the 45th anniversary of the death of a great man. On February 21, 1965, El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz, better known as Malcolm X was assassinated in New York.
His death was a tremendous loss for many communities, especially the Muslim community in America & the West.
Although Malcolm died 45 years ago, his ideas, ideals, and inspirational struggle still impacts us all. May Allah shower him with mercy and be pleased with him.
I will leave you with one of his quotes which I really love:
"Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you take it."
