An Islamic preacher in Kuwait, Mubarak al-Bathali has slammed Liverpool’s Egyptian footballer, Mohamed Salah with claims that the Liverpool player was punished by God for breaking his fast before the UEFA Champions League final game against Real Madrid in Kyiv.
Salah sustained an injuring when he tussled for the ball with Sergio Ramos. During the tussle, he landed on his left shoulder which resulted in his game ending abruptly.
According to Mubarak al-Bathali, the injury sustained by the player is as a result of him breaking his fast which is a disobedient act.
Muslim’s are allowed to break their fast for travel purposes, but the Kuwaiti preacher believes the highly rated player didn’t break his fast because of the journey from England to Ukraine. He believes Mohamed Salah broke his fast because of the match itself. He further claimed that ‘God punished him’ for eating before the match during Ramadan.
Mubarak al-Bathali wrote on Twitter:
“God punished him,”
“Unfortunately, [he will] bear the burden.
“Do not think the Muslim believes that life is managed by reason and effort, but life is the hand of God comes to whom he will, whether hard or not diligent.
“Perhaps the injury is good for you.
“Do not grieve, the door of repentance is open”.
