The Muslim World Remembers Boxing Legend Muhammad Ali

Boxing legend Muhammad Ali passed away on Friday June 3, aged 74, leaving the world in mourning.

While the star - who suffered a long battle with Parkinson's disease - was famous for his career as a sportsman, he was also in the spotlight for his religion.

Born Cassius Clay, the American changed his name to the moniker we now know in 1964, after becoming a Muslim. Here's how Twitter has remembered his relationship with Islam in the days following his death.
