i know he was part of the nation of islam but then turned to a sunni muslim, but if he was a muslim why was hes funeral held at the Faith Temple Church of God in Christ (now Child's Memorial Temple Church of God in Christ) and not like a normal islamic funeral.

indeed i also wondered if he turned into a sunni muslim, as Muhammad ALi did, who also was part of the 'nation of islam' well whenever they wanted him! They suspended him a few times, and then got told you may carry on being a Muslim! Thing is he never stopped being a Muslim :)....short while later he left the nation, and was a conventional sunni Muslim, and still is:)

Perhaps his family, though they also presumably became Sunni, arranged the funeral in this way? I doubt he had time to make arrangements for his own funeral while he was alive.

Come to think of it, im dot too sure, but i don't think Malcolm had the chance to become a Sunni Muslim and laeve the nation, because he got shot at a lecture of some kind was it not? Was that not lecture whilst he was part of the nation?...then again he did change names ...Mailk Shahbaz or something, then again so did Ali but later turned Sunni...

No, he was no longer part of the Nation of Islam when he was assassinated. After he went on Hajj, he became a Sunni Muslim.

Dude, I don't think the public was 'keeping it on the low', I just think you perhaps needed to do more research into the area. ;) Check out the Autobiography of Malcolm X. Great read.

subhanAllah give me 3 more months i'll b hearin dat ghandi is muslim
He was Hindu, mate. :p

Just before you say so, I doubt Alexander the 'Great' was the good explorer (can't remember his name) that the Quran talks about. The man who found Gog and Magog was a pious believer who loved God. Alexander was a deranged, possibly gay drunkard. He did love his god, but unfortunately that 'god' was himself. There is no connection between the man in the Quranic narration and Alexander the Great.

Neither do I. Your quite apt in surmising that. Who ever Dul qurnain was it still remain uncomfirmed, and probably will.
