Muhammad ‘Ali (r.a.) Saved a Man from Suicide

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

1981 was the last year of Muhammad ‘Ali’s (r.a.) career as a professional boxer.  And it was an eventful year.  In mid-January of that year, a 21-year-old man threatened to jump from the ninth floor of a building in Los Angeles.  The police had tried to talk him down to no avail.  A psychologist was sent, and even a chaplain.  It looked like he was going to jump.  But a superhero was in town.  Muhammad ‘Ali (r.a.) popped his head out the next window and said, “You’re my brother.  I love you and I wouldn’t lie to you.”

The man was distraught because he could not get a job and he had tensions with his family. He wept in Muhammad ‘Ali’s (r.a.) arms.  He was sent to hospital for psychiatric evaluation and to recover.
