Malcolm and Building Institutions
“The most important lesson to take from Malcolm, I believe, is the imperative of creating institutions. Malcolm understood instinctively and from his experience that ideas and charismatic people are not enough. That they have to be institutionalised” – Dr. Umar Faruq Abd-Allah
“Institutions are arrangements that allow us to strengthen the individual and that allow us to amplify the strengths of the individual. It might have a physical base, if you will, a ‘headquarters’, it might now. The family is a human institution. The family is an arrangement, a group arrangement that emphasises and accentuates the strength of individuals and mitigates and minimises their weaknesses.” – Imam Zaid Shakir
Following are videos from Dr. Umar Faruq Abd-Allah and Imam Zaid Shakir where they speak about our own institution here at SeekersHub Global.
