Malcolm Latiff Shabazz's funeral in Oakland, Friday, May 17, 10AM
Malcolm Latiff Shabazz's funeral arrangements are set for Friday, May 17 at 10 a.m. at the Islamic Cultural Center, 1433 Madison Street, Oakland, Calif.
This fund was created in conjunction with Qubilah Shabazz (Malcolm's mother); with the guidance of Hashim Alauddeen & Ja'far Muhibullah.
"And We will most certainly try you with fear and hunger and loss of property and lives and fruits; and give good news to the patient, Who, when a misfortune befalls them, say: Surely we are Allah's and to Him we shall surely return." Holy Quran (2:155-6)
The tragic news of the sudden killing of our dear brother Hajj Malcolm Shabazz, the grandson of El Hajj Malik Shabazz ("Malcom X"), has shaken the hearts of us all. Malcolm was a seeker of truth like his grandfather. He was a beloved son, father, brother and friend. He struggled to promote unity and goodwill for all people and was a lover of Ahl ul-Bayt.
During the week of May 13th, Hajj Malcolm's body will be transferred back to the United States so he can be remembered and given due respect. His funeral arrangements are being made and he will be laid to rest in Oakland, California, God willing. The money collected in this fund will be used for Hajj Malcolm's funeral services. Any additional money collected will be given to the Shabazz family. If you prefer, you can also donate directly through Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep Hajj Malcolm and his family in your prayers during this difficult time.
