Football jerseys Muslims should not wear
KOSMO! (a local Malay daily) carried a report about Muslims who wittingly or unwittingly wear football jerseys which display images of crosses, liquor brands and devils.
Johor Religious Council adviser Datuk Nooh Gadot said wearing such jerseys were forbidden in Islam.
“It is as if Muslims are worshipping and exalting the symbols of other religions. Islam does not compromise on this matter, regardless of whether it is worn for fun, fashion or sport,” he said.
Perak Mufti Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria agreed with Nooh and said although Islam did not forbid its followers from participating in sports or dressing up, it has to be done within the boundaries of Islamic law.
Among the football teams whose crests carry images of the cross are Brazil, Portugal, Serbia, Barcelona and Norway, while Manchester United carries the “Red Devil” slogan on its team crest.
Now while I have the utmost respect for ones religion and beliefs, I thought this was hilarious. I'm sure my Muslims buddies who are into football are not really worshiping and exalting the symbols on the jerseys but are actually just supporting their favourite football teams and I seriously don't think any of my Muslims friends would be changing their religions anytime soon.
I showed this to a few of my Muslim friends and trust me, they laughed just as hard as I did :D Well, you guys could always support Arsenal now instead of those Red Devil lowlifes ... hahaha ... I'm waiting for the next piece of hilarious news to hit our shores.
