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.

Although the Muhammad Ali has passed away, we need to continue his legacy of serving as ambassadors of Islam by living the Islamic character

The word 'Islam' means 'Peace.' The word 'Muslim' means 'one who surrenders to God.' But the press makes us seem like haters. -#MuhammadAli

Muhammad Ali, dead at 74. Hard to describe what he meant to those of us of a certain age. A proud, defiant sports hero and devoted Muslim.

Muhammad Ali will go down as the greatest boxer of all time. To me, he's an essential Muslim figure/humanitarian who I'll always admire.
