on Friday, June 10th Between 2:30 and 3:00 pm

Georgia's Muslim community plans to host a memorial service for the late, great Muhammad Ali on June 9th at 6:00 pm at the Atlanta Masjid of Al-Islam, Georgia's oldest Muslim house of worship.

Ali, a beloved member of the Atlanta Masjid of Al-Islam’s national community, passed away on June 4th after a long battle with Parkinson's Disease.

In addition to the Thursday evening memorial service, mosques across Georgia plan to conduct funeral prayers for the renowned boxer on Friday after the end of each mosque's weekly congregational service between 2:30 and 3:00 pm.

"One of Muhammad Ali's many iconic moments occurred when he lit the 1996 Olympic flame here in Atlanta," event organizers said. "It is only fitting that Atlanta Muslims unite with their neighbors of all backgrounds to thank God for Muhammad Ali."

During the Thursday evening memorial service, Georgians from diverse communities plan to discuss what Muhammad Ali's legacy means to them.

"Muhammad Ali spoke out against racism and war. He stood up for faith and reconciliation," said CAIR Georgia Executive Director Edward Ahmed Mitchell. "He was a role model—not only for Muslims, African-Americans, and athletes, but for all people who champion peace and justice."

"He was a hero to all of us and he gave all of us hope in the future," said Rev. Dr. Fahed Abu Akel, a Palestinian Christian who met Ali in Atlanta. "He loved his family. He loved his faith in God. He loved living. He loved the community and gave his time to raise money for great causes all over America and around the world."

"Muslims, especially those of America, have lost a great symbol of love, compassion and humanity, all traits of a good Muslim and a good human being," said Dr. Y. Khalid Siddiq, a representative of Atlanta's Al-Farooq Masjid. "America needed him most in these times."

Georgians interested in attending the memorial service at Atlanta Masjid of Al-Islam should RSVP on Facebook or by emailing info@ga.cair.com. Space is limited.
