Muhammad Ali's Advice To His Daughters...powerful! by Techwriter: 1:39am On Jan 08, 2013
An incident transpired when Muhammad Ali’s daughters arrived at his home wearing clothes that were quite revealing.
Here is the story as told by one of his daughters:
“When we finally arrived, the chauffeur escorted my younger sister, Laila, and me up to my father’s suite. As usual, he was hiding behind the door waiting to scare us. We exchanged many hugs and kisses as we could possibly give in one day.
My father took a good look at us. Then he sat me down on his lap and said something that I will never forget. He looked me straight in the eyes and said, “Hana, everything that God made valuable in the world is covered and hard to get to.
Where do you find diamonds? Deep down in the ground, covered and protected.
Where do you find pearls? Deep down at the bottom of the ocean, covered up and protected in a beautiful shell.
Where do you find gold? Way down in the mine, covered over with layers and layers of rock. You've got to work hard to get to them.”
He looked at me with serious eyes. “Your body is sacred. You’re far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too.”


From the book: More Than A Hero: Muhammad Ali's Life Lessons Through His Daughter's Eyes.

Thanks for the info. Every1 teaches modest dressing, the difference is that we don't stone people for doing otherwise because that same person can become a change agent tomoro if she had her life, right and freewill intact.

Even if it was existing like u claim, I posted this on 8th, on 12th smtn similar came up. Abegi

Your hatred of Islam is Ok. But since you believe there is sin, that hatred should not lead you to "sin" of false accusation of Muslims for what they know nothing about. The other poster says he is a Christian. I have read his profile and his statement appears to be true. He claims to be a member of Christ Embassy. And he opened his thread under "Celebrities" (not Islam) section. You can take the matter of "who posted first" up with him. Some Muslims don't go to the "celebrities" section normally. And whatever the section, people normally click and read a post based on the subject/title before they see the source. We know that Christians go to Islamic sites for different purposes. Just like Muslims can go to Christian sites.

You are free to practice your religion as you wish (including response to "indecent dressing" ). But Muslims don't stone people who dress improperly. That punishment is for adulterers (not even fornicators) who confess or are reported by 4 witnesses.
We know that there is punishment for "indecent dressing" in Christian universities in Nigeria. But that is not our business. So we don't post about such.
Thank you

typically, anything that mentions islam and muslims, is considered an islamic issue by muslim adherents.

although the write up doesnt expressly mention either islam or muslims, the fact that mohammed ali was credited as the author, and his comment seems overtly islamic, would lead to the assumption the article is meant to be viewed only in that context.

in actual fact, its rather ambiguous but open to various interpretations.

that website has no name or anything linking it to an actual human being.

that's fishy, as if the owners of the site are trying to hide.
