Muhammad Ali’s Tearful Advice To His Daughters On Indecent Dressing


This piece might interest, inspire, and elicit a change of attitude to at least one person.

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.”

  2. the most precious things is the most valuable things. She who sold her body too ship to men will not get it when the market is demanding for it. Ur body is the temple of holy ghost. keep ur body for ur spouse

  3. Mr Ali,God will bless you sir,the advice is not only for your daughters but is for all girls.Thank you sir,God bless you and your family.

  4. Thank God this is coming from the country our ladies think they are imitating, America. How I wish Nigerian parents will look their daughters in the eyes and give them this piece of advice.

  5. That is a very beatiful nd honest advice. Mohammed Ali really loves his daughters. That is what parents who truly love their children should be doing, not overlooking their behaviours. Bad mode of dressing also applies to the boys. They wallk with half their buttocks open, they call it ‘sagging’

  6. The Word:This’s touching and worth putting into practice by ladies,ladies who want better future and good home.Not for M.Alli daughters alone but also for every other ladies out there.Thanks, M.Alli for your word.Note: You dress indecent,you get indecent home!

  7. What a fatherly advice, and a lesson to all ladies.whenever you want to dress immodest remember this quote
    “every thing God, made in the world is covered and hard to get to”………..Muhammad Alli

  9. After sleeping with all those women, Id protect my daughters from people like me also. Lol.. Thats how most fathers are who had been out there. They are very protective of their daughters. Its not because he was a good and faithful husband. Please quote Billy Gram.
