Ali was born in Louisville and grew up there as a child and it is a fitting tribute to one of the city’s biggest personalities.

Mayor Greg Fischer praised Ali’s contributions to both his sport and his hometown.

Ali was a Muslim and would often proudly speak about his Islamic faith.

He once said, “Everything I do now, I do to please Allah,”

“I conquered the world, and it didn’t bring me happiness. The only true satisfaction comes from honoring and worshipping God. … Being a true Muslim is the most important thing in the world to me. It means more to me than being black or being American.”

May Allah have mercy on him.
