Muhammad Ali passed away in Scottsdale, Arizona on Friday, June 3. Regarded as one of the most significant sports figures of the 20th century, Muhammad Ali influenced many and inspired all. He was most known for his excellent sportsmanship, but Ali was also very outspoken about social justice and stood by very influential civil rights leaders, like Malcolm X. He served as a spokesman for both the African American and Muslim communities at large. May Allah (SWT) grant him the highest of heavens.
