Seventy-one-year-old Muhammad Ali was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1984. His health has declined to the point where he can’t speak and Rahman says his brother doesn’t recognize him anymore. “He's in a bad way. He's very sick. It could be months, it could be days. I don't know if he'll last the summer. He's in God's hands."
Muhammad Ali has been married to Yolonda (Lonnie) Williams for 26 years. Rahman is claiming that Williams won't let family members visit Muhammad. The last time he saw his brother was in July and Williams only allows him to speak to Muhammad on the phone.
Rahman shares that Muhammad has selected the words he wants on his gravestone after his passing. It’s a Martin Luther King quote that reads, “I tried to love somebody, I did try to feed the hungry. I did try, in my life, to clothe those who were naked. I want you to say that I tried to love and serve humanity. The Greatest.”
