Hmmm.

What about muslim footballers who knock their heads on the ground after scoring huh

thats why I'm not too comfortable with Islamic countries hosting major sport tournaments. eg the world cup. even if things turn out fine on the pitch, what about the ambience outside the stadiums etc etc
imagine a Christian team like Brazil which is predominantly Catholic lifting the world cup in Saudi Arabia. Na wahala be that with this rubbish this cleric is saying

Wahabists do not speak for Muslims do not be deceived...and do not mix the two, they are an Islamic sect yes but they do not speak for the entire Muslim world; the comments accruing to the Islamic scholar is his opinion and if watching football is haram we do not want to see Saudi Arabia in the world cup...

The world still doesnt know that Islam wants to overtake the world and make all subject to their sick religion or die in thuer Jihadists battles.
Prophesy indeed reveals that they will trouble us and it's happening now but we must stand up and resist this madness.

In my School if you are a Christian and everybody know that you are actually qualified for a post, you can never win that post if you are contesting with a Muslim that came on that day of the election to submit his name for the election.

Muslims should stop this " you must convert to Islam by force"

Islamic Cleric Blasted For Urging FIFA To Ban Christian Players From Making The Sign Of The Cross After Scoring

Is it that the world is afraid of Christianity or that Christianity is not real or have loosen touch as the world evolves? Which is it? or is it for the fact that Muslim community hates Christians with passion?

FIFA has been urged to ban Christian players from making the sign of the cross after scoring a goal. A Muslim cleric from Saudi Arabia, Mohammed Alarefe called on football’s governing body to write it into the game’s laws that players be prohibited from tapping their stomach, chest, left shoulder then right shoulder to make a cross.

Alarefe, who is professor of religion at King Saud University in Riyadh, posted the controversial call on Twitter to his 17.4million followers, but he was quickly flooded with messages disagreeing with him. A number of people pointed out to the Muslim scholar that a huge amount of players kneel on the ground and kiss the floor in celebration of a goal, mimicking the Islamic prayer.

Alarefe wrote:

‘I’ve seen video clips of athletes, soccer players running, shooting and when they win they make the symbol of the cross on their chests and my question is if FIFA’s rules forbid this.’

While people form all religious backgrounds, including Christianity and Islam responded to his views, many condemned the cleric, saying it incited division.

Islam should have ended with the stone age where it belonged.

Same with Christianity. Familiarize yourself with history and you will find that Christians did worse things back in the day compared to what isis has done so far. #Spanishinquisition for example. Religion is a plague that needs to be eradicated. How a grown man or woman can believe in angels is just amazing to say the least.

Yeah, Saul is pardoned because a woman was involved so let's blame the woman. If Saul was a woman and made the same mistake because of a man, you will not blame the man, you would still blame the female Saul for having fish brain and letting a man make her disdobay God. You will not say it is the man's fault like you blaming woman for Saul's sins.

Nigeria's Vice President Yemi Osinbajo can be challenged in court for acting president role, says lawyer
An Abuja-based lawyer, Ferdinand Orbih (SAN) has said that President
Muhammadu Buhari never transferred powers to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) going by his choice of words in his letter to the National Assembly.
He said that any action therefore, taken by Osinbajo as Acting President could be successfully challenged in court because power, which only the president has the right to transfer to his vice never happened.
The President had written to the National Assembly intimating it of his desire to travel to the United Kingdom for medical reasons and stated that Osinbajo will coordinate affairs of government, which has generated a lot of controversy.
“The question that arises is; has there been an effective transfer of presidential powers to the Vice President as envisaged under the Constitution? The answer is, of course, no.
“The second question begging for answer is; was the letter seeking to transfer power to the Vice-President deliberately couched to describe him as ‘coordinator’ of government business? This question must again be answered in the affirmative.
“The reason is simple. When the President travelled the first time to the UK for medical treatment, power was transferred to Osinbajo without controversy. There was no shadow of doubt at all that we had an Acting President.
“Now, can the Vice President make himself Acting President when there has been no proper transfer of such powers to him by the President? Of course not,”
Orbih said.
