Malikah was in the womb of her mother Betty when Malcolm was gunned down in front of his family. She never got to hug him here. I pray he will be waiting to embrace her there. May Allah have mercy on them and make it easy for her remaining family in earth. https://t.co/cAjFH4qNiV— Dr. Omar Suleiman (@omarsuleiman504) November 23, 2021
