    More Than A Hero: Muhammad Ali's Life Lessons Through His Daughter's Eyes

    Assalaamu alaykum,

    Some wisdom from the boxer Muhammad Ali :)

    Taken from the book: More Than A Hero: Muhammad Ali's Life Lessons Through His Daughter's Eyes.

    "If memory serves me correctly, I was wearing a little white tank top and a short black skirt. I had been raised Orthodox Muslim, so I had never before worn such revealing clothing while in my father's presence. When we finally arrived, the chauffer escorted my younger sister, Laila, and me up to my father's suite. As usual, he was hiding behind the door waiting to scare us. We exchanged many hugs and kisses as we could possibly give in one day. My father took a good look at us. Then he sat me down on his lap and said something that I will never forget. He looked me straight in the eyes and said, "Hana, everything that God made valuable in the world is covered and hard to get to. Where do you find diamonds? Deep down in the ground, covered and protected. Where do you find pearls? Deep down at the bottom of the ocean, covered up and protected in a beautiful shell. Where do you find gold? Way down in the mine, covered over with layers and layers of rock. You've got to work hard to get to them." He looked at me with serious eyes. "Your body is sacred. You're far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too."

    sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet :)
    You are not aware of the consequences that would result (if you were granted what you desire) because what you seek might be to your detriment. (O soul) be conscious that your Master is more aware about your well-being than you are.

          That is a very good bit of wisdom. Now if only Muhammad Ali would abstain from some of the other things he has been involved with in the past few years.

            Like the many charities Muhammad Ali has donated his money towards? I hope not. He is such a wonderful man.

                            Awww that is one of the nicest piece of advice given :up:

                            MashAllah, Muhamamd-Ali is great, a great boxer, i've been a fan of his. The interviews i've seen that he's given are superb, he seems very humble and MashAllah very funny :D

                            Also wasn't his daughter also doing boxing?


                            :salams

                              His younger daughter, Layla.

                              Even though Muhammad Ali is known as one of the strongest men of all-time, he is amazingly and overwhelmingly modest and kind. Did you witness the moving moments of Atlanta 96 when Ali raised the Olympic Torch? al-Humdulillah, you can understand how much difficulty one person has go through when he suffers from such a dangerous disease like Parkinson's. May Allah, the Most Kind, grant him solace and succour.
