Excerpt from Muhammad Ali: His Life and Services to His Country During the sessions of the Special Congress this year at Bombay in the joint deliberations of the Subjects Committee of the Indian National Congress and the Council of the All India Muslim League. But amongst them all the name of Mohamed Ali stands out as the most strenuous as it was also one of the most sincere. Much has been said and more hinted about his pan-islamic tendencies; but those who have known Mohamed Ali only by his published utterances and his political work remain unconvinced that one of the strongest advocates of Indian Unity and a strong upholder of the Imperial Connection deserved the fate to which he has been condemned. If there be anything deserving of condemnation in the actions of such men the only safe course is to publish the evidence against them. In the absence of such publication the Indian public, cognisant of the ways of the Police and aware of the transparency of Mohamed Ali's motives, remains sceptical towards official assertion.

He would go on to become the first and only three-time (in succession) World Heavyweight Champion. Nicknamed “The Greatest,” Ali was as well known for his unique boxing style, consisting of the Ali Shuffle and the rope-a-dope, as he was for the catchphrase “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” He was an uncompromising athlete who brought beauty and grace to a very rough sport and became one of the world’s most famous cultural icons. Read Who Was Muhammad Ali? and discover “The Greatest.”

In this poignant, moving book, Muhammad Ali shares the beliefs he has come to live by and which he has passed on to his children. Some of the wisdom is his own; some comes from the teachings of true Islam, from his spiritual studies, and from people he has met in the course of his extraordinary life. Here, as he recalls his early days as a young warrior in Louisville, Kentucky, and his meteoric rise to fame as Heavyweight Champion of the World, a title he won three times, he tells of the many battles he won and lost, both inside and outside the ring and his conversion to Islam in the 1960s. Now, working tirelessly as a worldwide ambassador for peace, he talks of the damage caused when religion is used to tear people apart, the essential need for unity in this troubled world, and how his faith sustains him on this, the most important journey of his life - the journey to forgiveness and peace. Together with his daughter Hana, in this timely spiritual memoir Ali draws upon his rich reserve of notes, tapes and journals, and writes with compassion, warmth and, of course, humour on how we can liberate mind, body and spirit when we pursue and embrace the one essential truth - love.


Muhammad Ali

Ali, a champion in and out of the ring, is still the greatest. This is a tribute to a unique character, the like of which the sporting world will most likely never see again.

When Muhammad Ali first donned boxing gloves in the late Fifties as Cassius Clay, he could not have imagined the impact he would make, not merely as a sportsman but as a global figure. Anyone alive in the Sixties and Seventies couldn’t help but notice this sportsman who, like a select few, broke through into celebrity status. More than that, his pronouncements were given more weight than many politicians of the time. His ring record speaks for itself: 61 fights, 56 wins, plus Olympic Gold and the WBA, WBC, and NABF World Heavyweight titles. But it was the swaggering, self-confident way he conducted himself in the ring that turned boxing into entertainment. The fact he took on the establishment with his anti-Vietnam views and newly adopted religious beliefs only added spice to the spectacle. Even after his death in 2016, this previous hard-hitting social activist remains an icon and a role model to millions today, all of whom cannot conceive of a world where Muhammad Ali didn’t exist. Even with his well-publicized health problems causing a lessening effect on his heavyweight character, leading up to his passing, he kept himself in the public eye through his promotion of world peace and through his non-profit Muhammad Ali Center in his hometown of Louisville. Ali, a champion in and out of the ring, is still the greatest. This is a tribute to a unique character, the like of which the sporting world will most likely never see again.

This biography will have your readers on the edge of their seats. Muhammad Ali was a triple threat: heavyweight boxing champion, civil rights activist, and international sports icon. One of the most influential figures of the twentieth century, Ali dominated professional boxing for more than a decade in the 1960s and 1970s. Brash and outspoken, he proclaimed "I am the greatest." He backed it up. A true rebel, he refused to serve in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War, saying it violated his religious beliefs. And after retiring from boxing, Ali had one more fight: diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1984, he raised awareness of and funds for treatment and research for over 30 years. When he died in 2016, the world lost one of its most treasured and rebellious sports figures.
