American Muslims Asked to Prepare for Muhammad Ali Funeral Prayer


(Plainfield, IN 06/06/16) A coalition of national American Muslim organizations is asking local communities to make preparations to attend the funeral prayer (salat al-janazah) for Muhammad Ali scheduled for Thursday, June 9, 2016 at 12pm EST at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Kentucky. The service is open to the public. Doors will open at 9am EST. 

Community members are encouraged to use #GenAli on social media to explain how they will continue his legacy.
 
Communities that are unable to send representatives to the Louisville funeral prayer are being asked to organize local prayers, called salat al-ghaib, which are performed for Muslims who have died in a distant place. Those prayers could be offered either before the nightly Ramadan taraweeh or after jummah prayers on Friday.
 
Yesterday, local and national Muslim leaders held a news conference in Washington, D.C., to honor the legacy of Muhammad Ali.
 

    
Later this week, a suggested sermon (khutba) outlining Muhammad Ali's importance to the American Muslim community and to the way Islam is viewed in our nation will be distributed to Islamic prayer leaders (imams) who will conduct the normal congregational prayers (jummah) this Friday.
