MANA Press Release
Grandson of El-Hajj El-Shabazz (Malcolm X) Confirmed by Family
MANA has received confirmed reports of the tragic death of 28-year-old Malcolm Shabazz, a grandson of the late El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X) and the late Dr. Betty Shabazz. Surely we belong to Allah and to Him will we return.
Following contact with the Shabazz family, we are now confirming our young brother’s demise. Reportedly he was killed yesterday morning in Mexico. The family has no official statement at this time, as they strive to cope with the shock and grief of their loss and make arrangements to identify and retrieve his remains. Formal announcement of burial arrangements will follow.
May Allah forgive our young brother’s sins, have mercy on him, and admit him to paradise. Our prayers and condolences are offered to Malcolm’s mother, Qubilah, his aunts and other family members. Please pray for them.
Imam Al-Hajj Talib ‘Abdur-Rashid, Deputy Amir
