The two days of funeral ceremonies bidding farewell to Muhammad Ali began yesterday with a Muslim prayer service in the Kentucky hometown of the beloved boxing legend and civil rights hero. The brief ceremony in Louisville launched two days of interfaith tributes bringing together people from all walks of life.

Thousands of people stood in the cavernous Freedom Hall arena in remembrance of one of the 20th century’s most singular personalities, who died last week at age 74.
The service is a traditional Muslim funeral. Muhammad Ali has a very, very special significance for the Muslim community. This is about… sending him off in the very best of fashion, and honor his memory, live his legacy and love each other as he would wish.” said Imam Zaid Shakir, who helped organise it.
The three-time heavyweight world champion died after a decades-long battle with Parkinson’s disease. Born Cassius Clay at a time of racial segregation in the American south, the boxer converted to Islam in 1964, changing his name to Muhammad Ali and shocking America.
