Muhammad Ali

The Association of Islamic Charitable Projects sends its condolences to the family of Muhammad Ali. Whether inside the ring fighting top-ranked boxers, or outside the ring fighting social injustice, and later in his life, Parkinson’s disease, Muhammad Ali fought fearlessly.

In 1967-- in the prime of his boxing career-- Muhammad Ali was stripped of his heavy-weight crown for his refusal to be inducted into the draft and go to Vietnam to kill people who never caused him any harm. Muhammad Ali, rather, chose to be a vocal opponent of the prevalent racism here in America. After several years of appealing his case in court, Muhammad Ali was once again allowed to box, and a few years later, he regained the heavy-weight crown from George Foreman.

Muhammad Ali, in spite of his growing notoriety, remained a “people’s champ.” His very presence was inspiring. He was inspiring, for he was an athlete who expressed the sentiments of the disadvantaged and oppressed, and Muhammad Ali was willing to sacrifice his career on the basis of moral principles. Many of us could take lessons from that.

We supplicate to Allah to grant his family and the country the patience over the passing away of Muhammad Ali. Indeed we belong to Allah and to Allah we shall return.

لقد بلغنا بحزن شديد الأحداث الدموية الأخيرة التي ضربت كاليفورنيا في الأمس القريب.

تتجه أفكارنا بداية إلى الضحايا وإلى أقربائهم، وكذلك إلى عامة الشعب في كاليفورنيا والولايات المتحدة الأمريكية المتحد اليوم في المأساة والألم والمتضامن في مواجهة الأفكار المتطرفة البغيضة.

إننا نستنكر أشد الاستنكار الصارم هذه الأعمال. كما نستنكر الأفكار الهدامة التي تتبنى هذا العنف الأعمى الذي لا يمكن القبول به تحت أيّ مسمى كان.

وأخيرا، نسأل الله أن يحمي البلد من كل شر.


Nous avons appris avec une profonde tristesse les derniers évènements sans précédent qui ont ensanglanté La Californie la semaine passée. Nos pensées vont avant tout aux victimes et à leurs proches, mais également aux habitants de la Californie et à l’ensemble du peuple américain uni aujourd’hui dans la douleur et solidaire dans la lutte contre le terrorisme odieux. Nous tenons à déclarer de la manière la plus forte notre condamnation ferme de ces actes et des idéologies destructrices cautionnant cette violence aveugle que rien ne peut justifier.

Enfin, nous demandons à Dieu de protéger le pays de tout mal.
