The Prayer of Malcolm X

Malcolm X
El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz

19 May 1925 - 21 February 1965

“I pray that God will bless you in everything that you do.

I pray that you will grow intellectually, so that you can understand the problems of the world and where you fit into, in that world picture.

And I pray that all of the fear that has ever been in your heart will be taken out…”

The Son Who Has Come Home (Yoruba)

A visionary and spiritual warrior who went home 45 years ago today, and who continues to inspire courage, integrity and dignity in the face of oppression.

Other memorable quotes

"The only true world solution today is governments guided by true religion — of the spirit."

"I’ve had enough of someone else’s propaganda. I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it’s for or against. I’m a human being first and foremost, and as such I am for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole."

"For the freedom of my 22 million black brothers and sisters here in America, I do believe that I have fought the best that I know how, and the best that I could, with the shortcomings that I have had…I know that societies often have killed people who have helped to change those societies. And if I can die having brought any light, having exposed any meaningful truth that will help destroy the racist cancer that is malignant in the body of America then, all of the credit is due to Allah. Only the mistakes have been mine."
