Malcolm X Muslim Name


Malcolm X birth name was Malcolm Little. He changed his name after his conversion to Islam to a Muslim name el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz meaning El-Hajj signified the pilgrimage to Mecca, Malik means king in Arabic, and Shabazz means royal, generous or noble.


Pilgrimage to Mecca


In April 1964, with financial help from his half-sister Ella Little-Collins, Malcolm X flew to Jeddah , Saudi Arabia, as the start of his Hajj , the pilgrimage to Mecca obligatory for every Muslim who is able to do so. He was delayed in Jeddah when his U.S. citizenship and inability to speak Arabic caused his status as a Muslim to be questioned. 

He had received Abdul Rahman Hassan Azzam 's book The Eternal Message of Muhammad with his visa approval, and he contacted the author. Azzam's son arranged for his release and lent him his personal hotel suite. 

The next morning Malcolm X learned that Prince Faisal had designated him as a state guest. Several days later, after completing the Hajj rituals, Malcolm X had an audience with the prince.

Malcolm X later said that seeing Muslims of "all colors, from blue-eyed blonds to black-skinned Africans," interacting as equals led him to see Islam as a means by which racial problems could be overcome.
