Salim Abdul-Khaliq was born Ron Charles in Chicago, Illinois in 1954. He was born with a constant desire to read, write and study.
In 1974, while in the army, he was positively influenced by a muslim brother named John Sanders, now known as Yahya Abdul Ali-Karriem. He became a mentor to Ron. This mentoring led Ron to do further research and investigation into the faith of Islam and into Malcolm X.
As a young black man Islam gave Ron a profound understanding of God, self knowledge, and African American history. This led to his conversion to Islam in 1974 and later a name change.
The name change is significant and symbolic of a change of consciousness. He is now Salim Abdul-Khaliq. This name means Peaceful Servant of the Creator. In addition, he also gave his daughters Islamic names.
God has enabled Salim Abdul-Khaliq to devote himself full time to his teachings and community activism. He has now opened a bookstore in Chicago, Illinois. Salim opened the bookstore to impress upon African-American people the importance of learning about their great heritage through reading.
