He will be missed indeed. His work was sublime, and will outlive his passing.

Taha Muhammad Ali was a spiritual prince. We may miss him but he left so much of himself with us that he can't be easily forgotten. Salams to the man!

I had the pleasure of hearing Taha Muhammad Ali read at the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival and knew instantly I was in the presence of a great poet never to be forgotten.

His riches in life depicted by a beautiful illustration of simply inviting death to the flesh, grounded in tea and sleep. May God grant this poet paradise.
