An incident transpired when 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. Ad 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 tooa good look at us. Then he sat me down on his lap and said something that i will never for 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 your 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 w/ layers and layers of rock. You've got to work hard to get to them. "He looked at me w/serious eyes. "Your body is sacred,your far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too" courtesy: Black Dad Rock

Anyway guys try to inspired you all,what do your things is the best lessons? Free to comments...Thank y'all :))

Well..for my opinion,its about hard working..like what we do here,before we reach our goal,we need to work hard as harder as better...its not easy but if the spirit is there in your heart,you would reach your goals

This says two things to me. Women, tho as beautiful creatures as you are, should be modest...to a point. Also it tells me that inside all, men and women, there is beauty to be brought out through hard work and determination. True some don't have to work as hard as others buy the ones who work harder to achieve it, are more responsible and respectful of what they have earned.

What I believe is if god has given you an enviable body then flaunt it and inspire many others instead of hiding it. What someone wear is as per their choice and comfortability, nobody should comment on that...

I respect your opinions saikat,but all we know that ali is a fighter,boxer. I think its not all about the body its about a reality that life is not just easy,you have to do hard working to reach your goals. Second ex.if you a boxer,you doing fight,you have to protect your body to your enemy,to not get points with you. Like some of the guys here are arrogant and unrespect,so you have to protect yourself to not accepting or instead make a privacy profile...its fine if they dont want to comments,i just want to listen to the others opinions...

I don't think I have said anything against Muhammad Ali, he is great! And neither did I say anything about boxing. You cannot box wearing a full length cloth. All I said is that it is up to us how we see others. Diamonds and pearls are valuable but human body is priceless.

Saikat: i dont think where same both,i respect your opinions tho.but i think you missed the main point of what i have posted...actually,the mean point is being "hard working". :-)
