Muhammad Ali has told Jason Rezaian of the Washington Post – the journalist detained in Iran for 544 days – to continue to share the true meaning of Islam.

“What a true blessing to learn of your release from Iran,” said Ali. “It truly lifted a weight off my heart and I thank God that you are back home with friends and family. Your faithfulness, peace and faith helped you through this journey and will continue to lift you up throughout your life. It is my greatest hope that you continue sharing your gift of writing to share the true meaning of Islam with the world.”

In March of 2015 Muhammad Ali first spoke out for Jason Rezaian, calling on Iran to release the Washington Post reporter who had been unjustly detained in prison. Ali tweeted the day Jason was released (which was also Ali’s birthday). This is the first statement he has issued since Jason has been released.
