I received the new of the passing away of former world heavyweight boxer, Muhammad Ali on Friday evening 3 Jun 2016 when I was on holiday with my family in Singapore.
I felt sad. Muhammad Ali was my late father's favorite boxer. He used to be excited when there is a fight involving Ali.
I still remember how my late father used to talk about how great Ali is when he danced around the ring. "Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee"
May Allah give His mercy to both Muhammad Ali and my late father Mustaffa Menfari.
However great we are, we shall return to Allah.
Allah hu Akbar
