Elijah Muhammed’s Relationship with Malcolm X

By Lance Jessurun

Brief Summary

  • One of Elijah Muhammad's top ministers from 1952 to 1963 was the former Malcolm X

  • Also the son of a preacher, Malcolm had converted to Islam while imprisoned in Massachusetts at the urging of two of his brothers, Philbert and Reginald, who were both NOI members.

Falling Out

  • Following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Elijah Muhammad forbade his ministers from commenting on the incident. In a press interview, Malcolm X violated Muhammed’s orders and said President Kennedy's murder was "chickens coming home to roost".

Malcolm’s House Firebombed

  • In the early morning hours of February 14, 1965, a Nation of Islam-owned home in East Elmhurst, Queens where Malcolm X and his wife and three children resided was firebombed. Malcolm X publicly accused Elijah Muhammad of ordering it.

Malcolm’s Assassination

  • Three members of the Nation of Islam's Temple No. 25 in Newark, New Jersey were convicted for their roles in the murder of Malcolm X. His widow, Dr. Betty Shabazz (1934–1997), believed for the remainder of her life that the assassination was ordered from the highest levels of Nation of Islam leadership (Elijah Muhammed).
