Living between Hope and Fear

Muhammad Ali

It all started with an innocent question: You have beaten some of the toughest men in the world in the ring. What scares you the most?


Ali: [Points to his wife, to much laughter]

Lonnie Ali: Come on, Muhammad, joking aside, tell them what really scares you.

Ali: Nothing.

Lonnie Ali: Nothing on this earth maybe, but ... tell them Muhammad.
[There is a long pause]

Ali: Not going to heaven.
[Everyone present became silent. Sister Lonnie Ali had tears flowing down her cheeks. Others present were also shaken and silent. A few wiping their eyes. Br. Malik Mujahid broke the silence, patting Muhammad Ali on his arm.]

Malik Mujahid: "No, Insha Allah, you will enter Jannah because you have helped so many people."

Ali:[Muhammad Ali turned his face towards Br. Malik Mujahid, looking at him as though asking: Are you sure? Are you sure about yourself?]

Malik Mujahid: "The Mumin lives between hope and fear."

I logged on to sound vision feeling deppressed about trivial things, reading that artical made me realize there are bigger things to be afraid of. That artical has really wiped away my fears of my futre in this world, because the hereafter is so big compared to it.

I used to be afraid that i might not achieve what i want to in life;become a good doctor.Now i have realised that the most important thing to me is doing the good that i can and making the best of this world so the hereafter can be the best for me inshaALLAH.

No One is really know if someone's going to Heaven or Hell, expect Allah. I think Mohamed Ali is good Person because he helped many people by showing being muslim is wondeful in America.
