Quit Whining

Assalamualaikum, everybody!!

You know, Euro 2012 is coming up soon.  Poland and Ukraine will be the host.  Been playing football since I was 5 or 6 y/o so of course I'm a football buff.  Been a Manchester United fan since '98 and pretty darn proud of it........
Glory glory Man United!
Anywho, try to imagine being a Muslim footballer.  And I don't mean here in Malaysia.  I mean in Europe.  The BPL, Serie A, French Ligue, Spanish League.  It's really amazing that they can play football there, fulfilling Allah S.W.T's wishes.  Not only that, they also fast in Ramadhan even when they have matches. So here are some footballers all over Europe who are Muslims.  Some might surprise you and some you might already know....

Karim Benzema of France and Real Madrid
Mesut Ozil from Germany and (also) Real Madrid
Franck Ribery from France and Bayern Munich
Samir Nasri, French international and Man City
Zinadine Yazid Zidane (Zizou), ex-France and Real Madrid
Omar Frederick Kanoute
Basically, there are too many to name here.  These guys play football and they still stick to their Muslim ways.  How about us?  We work the 9-5 hours, study only about 3-4 classes a day but we somehow neglect our duties as Muslims.

So, what's YOUR excuse??

See you guys on the flip side!!

P/S : This is a reminder to myself and other brothers and sisters of Islam.
