Malcolm X’s Letter from Makkah

Spotted at

Malcolm X’s (al-Hajj, Malik al-Shabazz) Letter from Makkah*
By Discover Islam Team

The following is Malcolm X’s (al-Hajj, Malik al-Shabazz) letter to his assistants in Harlem during his pilgrimage to Makkah in April of 1964:

Never have I witnessed such sincere hospitality and overwhelming spirit of true brotherhood as is practiced by people of all colors and races here in this ancient holy land, the home of Abraham, Muhammad and all the other Prophets of the holy scriptures. For the past week, I have been utterly speechless and spellbound by the graciousness I see displayed all around me by people of all colors.

I have been blessed to visit the holy city of Makkah; I have made my seven circuits around the Ka'aba, led by a young Mutawwaf (guide) named Muhammad; I drank water from the well of the Zamzam. I ran seven times back and forth between the hills of mount al-Safa and al-Marwa. I have prayed in the ancient city of Mina, and I have prayed on mount Arafat.

There were tens of thousands of pilgrims, from all over the world. They were of all colors, from blue-eyed blondes to black-skinned Africans. But we were all participating in the same ritual, displaying a spirit of unity and brotherhood that my experiences in America had led me to believe never could exist between the white and non-white.

America needs to understand Islam, because this is the one religion that erases from its society the race problem. Throughout my travels in the Muslim world, I have met, talked to, and even eaten with people who in America would have been considered white - but the white attitude was removed from their minds by the religion of Islam. I have never before seen sincere and true brotherhood practiced by all colors together, irrespective of their color.

You may be shocked by these words coming from me. But on this pilgrimage, what I have seen, and experienced, has forced me to rearrange much of my thought-patterns previously held, and to toss aside some of my previous conclusions. This was not too difficult for me. Despite my firm convictions, I have always been a man who tries to face facts, and to accept the reality of life as new experience and new knowledge unfolds it. I have always kept an open mind, which is necessary to the flexibility that must go hand in hand with every form of intelligent search for truth.

During the past eleven days here in the Muslim world, I have eaten from the same plate, drunk from the same glass, and slept on the same rug - while praying to the same God - with fellow Muslims, whose eyes were the bluest of blue, whose hair was the blondest of blond, and whose skin was the whitest of white. And in the words and in the deeds of the white Muslims, I felt the same sincerity that I felt among the black African Muslims of Nigeria, Sudan and Ghana.

We were truly all the same (brothers) - because their belief in one God had removed the white from their minds, the white from their behavior, and the white from their attitude.

I could see from this, that perhaps if white Americans could accept the Oneness of God, then perhaps, too, they could accept in reality the Oneness of Man - and cease to measure, and hinder, and harm others in terms of their “differences” in color.

With racism plaguing America like an incurable cancer, the so-called “Christian” white American heart should be more receptive to a proven solution to such a destructive problem. Perhaps it could be in time to save America from imminent disaster - the same destruction brought upon Germany by racism that eventually destroyed the Germans themselves.

Each hour here in the holy land enables me to have greater spiritual insights into what is happening in America between black and white. The American Negro never can be blamed for his racial animosities - he is only reacting to four hundred years of the conscious racism of the American whites. But as racism leads America up the suicide path, I do believe, from the experiences that I have had with them, that the whites of the younger generation, in the colleges and universities, will see the handwriting on the walls and many of them will turn to the spiritual path of truth - the only way left to America to ward off the disaster that racism inevitably must lead to.

Never have I been so highly honored. Never have I been made to feel more humble and unworthy. Who would believe the blessings that have been heaped upon an American Negro? A few nights ago, a man who would be called in America a white man, a United Nations diplomat, an ambassador, a companion of kings, gave me his hotel suite, his bed. Never would I have even thought of dreaming that I would ever be a recipient of such honors - honors that in America would be bestowed upon a King - not a Negro.

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds.

al-Hajj, Malik al-Shabazz (Malcolm X)


* Taken from The Autobiography of Malcolm X, co-authored by Alex Haley.

Editor’s Note: The compassion, selflessness, brotherhood, and generosity that Malcolm encountered in Makkah during his Hajj opened his heart to the true spirit of Sunni Islam. He writes in his autobiography, “Because of the spiritual enlightenment which I was blessed to receive as the result of my recent pilgrimage to the holy city of Makkah, I no longer subscribe to sweeping indictments of any one race. I am now striving to live the life of a true Sunni Muslim. I must repeat that I am not a racist nor do I subscribe to the tenets of racism. I can state in all sincerity that I wish nothing but freedom, justice and equality, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all people.”

great goals..

Here's some good goals from LFC's last match against Bolton, accompanied by a nice song. huh? What's the song title? its "Whistle For The Choir" by The Fratellis.

ponder this..

Something to share, a quote which was said to come from Sayyidina Ali Bin Abu Talib r.a. (not sure of its source or originality(keshahihannya) but its insightful to ponder upon, so..)

"Ketahuilah bahawa al-Quran adalah pemberi nasihat yang tidak akan memperdayai. Pemberi petunjuk yang tidak akan menyesatkan dan pembicara yang tidak akan pernah berbohong. Siapa saja yang menekuni al-Quran, maka akan terjadi dua hal berupa penambahan dan pengurangan pada dirinya, yaitu bertambahnya hidayah dan berkurangnya kebutaan ilmu pada dirinya.

Dan ketahuilah bahawa tidak ada seorang pun yang setelah mempelajari al-Quran akan mengalami kesulitan dan tidak ada seorang pun sebelum mempelajari al-Quran akan merasa berkecukupan.

Jadikanlah al-Quran sebagai penawar sakit bagimu dan mintalah pertolongan dengannya. Sesungguhnya dalam al-Quran terdapat penawar penyakit bagi sakit yang paling parah sekalipun, seperti kufur, nifak dan kesesatan. Mohonlah kepada Allah SWT dan menghadaplah kepadaNya dengan penuh rasa cinta.."

and quoting verses from al-Quran, Allah SWT berfirman, terjemahannya..

Alif Laam Miim. Kitab (al-Quran) ini tidak ada keraguan padanya; petunjuk bagi mereka yang bertaqwa. (yaitu) mereka yang beriman kepada yang ghaib. yang mendirikan solat dan menafkahkan sebahagian rezeki yang Kami anugerahkan kepada mereka. Dan mereka yang beriman kepada kitab (al-Quran) yang telah diturunkan kepadamu dan Kitab-Kitab yang telah diturunkan sebelummu serta mereka yakin akan adanya (kehidupan) Akhirat. Mereka itulah yang mendapat petunjuk dari Tuhannya dan merekalah orang-orang yang beruntung. (al-Baqarah: 1-5)
