Hana went on to relate more information about her dad's passing, writing, "We all tried to stay strong and whispered in his ear, 'You can go now. We will be okay. We love love [sic]. Thank you. You can go back to God now.' All of us were around him hugging and kissing him and holding his hands, chanting the Islamic prayer."
Just as he was surrounded by family in his final moments, so will he be surrounded by well wishers when he is buried — the funeral will feature a procession beginning at 9 a.m. that will travel along a route including "locations that were historically important to Muhammad."
The service itself will begin at 2 p.m ET at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, and will be open to the public. Eulogies will be offered by former President Bill Clinton, comic Billy Crystal, and newsman Bryant Gumbel.
