An American icon died yesterday. An American, a champion boxer, a husband, a father, and a Muslim. Not only was he Muslim, but he studied the deeper spirituality of Islam in Sufism.
He was more than an athlete. And he had integrity. He helped children all over the world. He did good works. And he was a Muslim.
I hope that when some Americans shout for Muslims to be pushed from the country, they remember Mohammed Ali.
