The month of February marks the martyrdom of Malcolm X (proper Islamic name, El Haj Malik el-Shabazz). Without doubt, he was a great revolutionary. That is the reason why the American establishment killed him. He was a great orator who had a sharp analytical mind. That he was only 39 years old when he was killed showed what a great mind he had. He made an immense contribution to the African-American struggle for emancipation and civil rights. May Allah (swt) grant him a high place in Jannah.
