On this day 53 years ago (21 February, 1965), American Muslim civil rights leader Malcolm X (also known as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz) was assassinated in New York City. It was his life and legacy that inspired countless numbers of persons to look into Islam. After the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, this man is the biggest role model for multitudes.
A week before his death he was asked if he was worried about the death threats he was receiving, he said; “ I live like a man who’s dead already. I have no fear whatsoever of anybody or anything.” – May Allah have mercy on him.
