Muhammad Ali: How He Wanted to Be Remembered

I recently finished reading David Remnick's biography of Muhammad Ali, King of the World. The book was so good, I actually dragged out the reading because I didn't want it to end. Ali tells us how he wants to be remembered:

As a black man who won the heavyweight title and who was humorous and who treated everyone right. As a man who never looked down on those who looked up to him and who helped as many of his people as he could--financial[ly] and also in their fight for freedom, justice, and equality. As a man who wouldn't embarrass them. As a man who tried to unite his people through the faith of Islam...

May Allah forever bless the Greatest of All Time.
