OPOW: MANA Shares The Sadness Of The World At The Passing Of Muhammad Ali ...رحمة الله عليه

MANA

MANA shares the sadness of the world at the passing of Muhammad Ali (ra).  And sends sincerest condolences to his family.
  
Muhammad Ali, by his unflinching determination to be respected as a Muslim and as a self-determining Black man--regardless of the cost--brought dignity and honor not only to himself, but also to all Muslims and to the Black community. 

And we loved him with a great love. 

If Malcolm was our manhood, Muhammad was our heart. Muhammad's smile was ours as was his humor, and his beauty. He was proud of his Blackness and its beauty.  It was a pride he defiantly showed to the world and a pride he awakened in many. By example, Muhammad taught us not to fear speaking up and out--how to elegantly float like a butterfly, yet sting like a bee. And although we never reached his heights, he made that possibility real for us; giving us the courage to try...again and again...and to never give up trying.
 
Inside the ring and out--and for all of his life--Muhammad Ali showed the world what real courage looks like.  

We pray that Allah will forgive the mistakes of our beloved brother and multiply the reward of the innumerable good deeds he did--both publicly and privately--on behalf of those who had otherwise been overlooked.  

Having been honored, loved and recognized throughout the world in this life, we pray that our brother, Muhammad Ali, be honored, loved and recognized to an even greater extent in the next life.

And, may the comfort and love of family, friends and of the Muslim and Black communities surround Muhammad Ali's wife, Lonny, and his entire family in their time of grief.  

Ameen thumma ameen.

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.
