Reminder: Muhammad Ali was a Muslim!
Muhammad Ali was Muslim, therefore the presence of many Muslims and the recitation of Quran at his funeral comes as no surprise, having 12-hours of continuous coverage by most mainstream media outlets is unthinkable in almost any other situation.
It seemed the identity of Muhammad Ali was now inextricably linked with his faith. A societal recognition that Muhammad Ali was Muslim first and foremost. And yet the official social media accounts of the Champ, run by the Authentic Brands Group, have failed to represent the central place of Islam in his legacy.
