Why Muhammed Ali refused to have his name put on the floor
Muhammad Ali was offered a star with his name on “Hollywood Walk of Fame” but he refused and said: “I bear the name of our Beloved Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him), and it is impossible that I allow people to trample over his name.”
He is the only one whose name is not on the floor of Hollywood Walk of Fame, it hangs on the wall.
Its not that “he” didn’t want to be walked on but rather he was being respectful to his religion of Islam. He said his name represents the great prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and it would be disrespectful if people just trampled over his great name.
