Closeness to the Creator is the ultimate of all Muslims and with understanding and education all will see that this is the goal of all the Abraham faiths. All 3 believe that happiness comes from love for him. He asks only that we should “spend of our substances out of love for him alone.” Meaning moral duty enacted out of duty for him, “for god’s sake first.” Doing all things through the lord first and then showing and educating the people, the world and Muslims alike in the ways of the lord can reach peace in Denny’s opinion.

Our Holy Prophet (SAW) also established social peace by spreading the ideas such as no one is superior in any possible way in front of god. No white man is superior to the Black man and No Black man is inferior to white men. In God’s sight everyone is same and Allah will love those who were righteous in their life. Prophet (SAW) met the enmity in his life by following the path of Peace, and also he preached that controlling one’s one anger towards others will make an individual most strongest which will also create a peaceful surrounding. Prophet (SAW) explained that Salam (Peace) is
Malcolm X’s nationalistic movement urges separation through self-defense in the Black community created by his rhetoric and speeches resulting in the public’s confusion whether or not to follow other civil rights leaders. Malcolm X was raised in an atmosphere of fear and anger which was a main cause for his imprisonment. For the very reason Malcolm X grew up resenting White America and it was in prison where he found Islam and his calling. Throughout Malcolm X’s life his views on America changed drastically. In one of Malcolm X’s peaches, ‘The Ballot or the Bullet”, he stresses the importance that this cause he is fighting for is not a religious cause; he is fighting for all Blacks because “they don’t hang you cause your Muslim, they hang you cause your Black” (Malcolm X) and the only way they would be able to unite is if they kept “religion in the closet”.
In Christianity; God loves his people. (Romans 5:8) states, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we are still sinners, Christ died for us.” The commonality is God of both faiths loves the good people who chose to follow the right ways. The God of Islam loves certain people; but regardless, we live in a fallen world where everyone is a sinner ever since the day Adam and Eve sinned. According to both religions, there is an all-forgiving God. (Surat Al-Hajj, 60) of the Qur’an says, “…Allah is all-pardoning, ever forgiving.” Both faiths offer forgiveness when sin is

The white-man is not like the other whites in America. I can feel the bonding of Islam that ties them. As a conclusion, I find that this story is really can motivates and inspires us. I understand now, it is not only motivational books that can motivate us, but also one’s autobiography.
Then there came along the Samaritan. He was supposedly an enemy of the victim because of his religion, and yet he was the only one who helped and took car of him. The Good Samaritan is a clear role model to all Christians, as even as the victim was supposedly his enemy he still love and treated him as a loving neighbour. In James 2:1-5,we are told precisely that prejudice is wrong; “you are guilty of creating distinctions among yourselves and of making judgments based on evil motives” It cannot be shown any clearer than
Malcolm X believed in the civil rights movement to such an extreme that during one of his speeches he stated "If you're not ready to die for it, put the word 'freedom' out of your vocabulary"("Malcolm-X.org" 2). He was so infatuated with freedom that he would even accept death if it means that he achieved his goal for freedom. Originally known as Malcolm Little, he endured numerous trials and tribulations by being born into an African American family in the time of the great struggle for equality for minorities. At a tender age Little learned about the hate the predominantly white society harboured towards black people.

Statement of Purpose The central theme of the report is to reflect the perspective of a black man in an era that called for equality struggles between races in the United States while battling views on racism and his rise and fall within the Nation of Islam religion. The research paper was constructed so that the reader would gain knowledge of Malcolm X as an individual and not as a phenomenon. A reflection regarding amiable truths that spanned his brief lifetime and the apparent transformations the man and his psyche underwent from childhood to his untimely death. The perspective of Malcolm X was simply that he was a black man in America during the same time span that focused on the struggles of African Americans in the United States in particular. Malcolm X suffered from the same phobias that you and I would but his were intensified because of his status within the Nation of Islam and also because he was considered dangerous by the white population as a whole in America at this time.

In history we know that no two men are alike but, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X were phenomenal people and leaders.
