Assalamu alaikum

Malcolm X departed this life leaving behind many words of wisdom via press and video.

“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today”

“I believe in the brotherhood of all men, but I don’t believe in wasting brotherhood on anyone who doesn’t want to practice it with me. Brotherhood is a two-way street.”

“I have often reflected upon the new vistas that reading opened to me. I knew right there in prison that reading had changed forever the course of my life. As I see it today, the ability to read awoke in me some long dormant craving to be mentally alive.”

“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.”

“You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.”

His legacy will last for generations to come providing education as a gateway to freedom and peace.  His words are still prominent today, in the depth of pain and darkest night inner peace is the only light.  Seek peace through knowledge Qur’an
