The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA released the following statement on Muhammad Ali's death:

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA mourns the passing of Muhammad Ali (1942-2016). The Community enjoyed a personal relationship with Ali in his youth, as he studied Islam under the tutelage of several scholars of the Community.

Most significantly, Ali’s unmatched contributions in the service of humanity are commendable and inspiring. He used his celebrity to unapologetically combat racism and anti-Muslim sentiment. Moreover, reports indicate that since 1986 alone he raised over $100 million dollars for charity to help find a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

'Muhammad Ali is an inspiration and a once in a generation icon,' said Dr. Nasim Rehmatullah, National Vice President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA. 'He was a proud Muslim and a proud African American at a time when both demographics are singled out. We pray that God bestows His grace and mercy on him. We pray that God gives patience to his family and loved ones during this difficult time.'
