Muhammad Ali’s Funeral in Pictures


Louisville – Thousands have joined together shoulder to shoulder inside a Kentucky arena for a Muslim prayer service that begins two days of memorials for Muhammad Ali.

The brief service, which is part of a plan designed by Ali himself years before he died, began with a message of inclusion from the imam leading it.

“We welcome the Muslims, we welcome the members of other faith communities, we welcome the law enforcement community,” Imam Zaid Shakir, a prominent US Muslim scholar, told the crowd. “We welcome our sisters, our elders, our youngsters.”
