Muhammad Ali’s (Boxing Champion) Advice To His Daughter On Revealing Clothes!


Muhammad Ali’s advice to his daughters…………..Inspiring

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.”

    My dad told us, three daughters the same thing as teenagers :) seems like the secret fraternity of dads-of-girls is in on this worldwide.

    the whole world may cry and scream for equality which is justified… but modesty in dressing earns respect and the parents are always worried about the daughter’s safety… and so …

    excellent!! if all fathers could teach this to their daughters and sons….. instead of encoueging them to adopt the trendy/ filmiy or western/ modern style.

    This is one of the best article I’ve ever read! My Daddy was no different. He didn’t allow any of us to dress inappropriately while growing up and we still don’t to this day.
